DENVER (AP) - A contentious bill on abortion rights hangs in the balance in the Colorado Senate.
The bill aimed at protecting reproductive rights is scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening. But Democrats have a slim one-seat majority and one of their senators says he's unsure.
Sen. John Kefalas of Fort Collins says he hasn't made up his mind. He says reproductive decision-making is a right that should be protected, but he's not sure whether the bill up for a vote is the right approach.
Some 500 people protested the measure on the Capitol grounds Tuesday. The abortion vote was delayed because Democrats excused Kefalas, who says party leaders wanted to give him space to decide.
All Republicans are expected to vote against the bill.
