The Trump Administration has begun to enforce its abortion gag rule, which strips family planning funds from health care providers that perform abortions, refer to abortion providers, or even discuss abortion with their patients.
Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains
Want to make sure access to abortion is secure in Colorado?
Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado (PPVC), the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, has announced its endorsement last week of five female candidates for the Colorado State Senate.
When the Trump Administration proposed a new rule last month to strip federal funding from abortion providers nationwide, many saw it as an attack on Planned Parenthood, which the president has repeatedly said he’d like to “defund.”
Cynthia Coffman was once a leading figure in a successful effort to defund Planned Parenthood, but has she changed her view?
Asked last week whether she thinks Planned Parenthood’s non-abortion family planning services, like consultation and exams related to birth control, should receive tax-payer funds, which she’s opposed in the past, Republican gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Coffman said my question required a long conversation another time, indicating that she may have changed her view on it.
