A controversial bill to legalize civil unions for same sex couples in Colorado was voted out of committee late last Tuesday and in the process several other bills were also killed.
The Denver Post reported:
“No matter what happens today or tomorrow, the unspoken truth in this whole debate is we will win,” Jace Woodrum, deputy director for One Colorado, the state’s largest gay-rights group.
“Whether it is today or tomorrow or next year or the next, we will win. Gay and lesbian couples in this state will have full protection under the law. We all know it, and everybody in this building knows it,” he said.
