Controversial billboard advertising abortion goes up in Colorado

DENVER (KWCH) Some in Colorado are worried a controversial billboard advertising abortion may give their state a bad name.

The billboard is located along I-70, and it's visible to those coming into the state from Utah. It reads "Welcome to Colorado, where you can get a safe, legal abortion."

Abortion supporters tell CBS Denver the billboard is meant to let those in neighboring states know that Colorado supports their reproductive medical needs.

Abortion opponents say they want to those who don't live in the state to know that the message doesn't represent the views of all Coloradans.

Several billboards can be seen throughout the state advertising views for those who may be pregnant or become and are forced to make a difficult decision.
