On July 5, 2012 Heather Surovik was only days away from giving birth to her son Brady, when tragedy struck. A drunk driver, on his fifth DUI, struck Heather’s car, killing baby Brady and injuring the rest of the family.
Prosecutors were not able to charge the drunk driver with the death of baby Brady Surovik because under Colorado law a preborn child is not considered a person. The media quickly dehumanized baby Brady by referring to him as a “fetus.”
There are 23 states and the federal law which recognize the preborn child as a victim of a homicide, but Colorado is not one of them.
In 2012, abortion advocates led by Planned Parenthood and the Colorado Democratic Party defeated a bill, HB 1130, that would have brought justice to families like the Suroviks.
The Brady Project is a way for Brady’s memory to live on and also a way to bring justice for all the other babies who are dehumanized by the abortion industry and their allies.
