This week, The Denver Post’s Kurtis Lee wrote a critically important news story detailing Coffman’s attempt to flip-flop on his longstanding support for banning abortion. The title of the story was, “Mike Coffman adjusts abortion stance in cases of rape and incest.” A short time later, this story disappeared from The Denver Post’s website. I’m not kidding.
Every person in Colorado deserves the privacy and freedom to make choices about reproductive health care without government looking over their shoulder. Every year, new attacks on women’s reproductive rights emerge in Colorado, despite the fact that Colorado is an overwhelmingly pro-choice state. It’s wrong to force anyone’s beliefs on others, but that’s what happens in Colorado year after year.
It’s an unfortunate fact that basic rights women take for granted every day are under attack. This year, Republicans in the Colorado House introduced legislation to ban all abortions in Colorado, even in cases of rape or incest. Well funded anti-choice groups have successfully put an abortion ban on the Colorado ballot for the third time in the last four general elections.
