In a legal brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court last week, three of the four Republicans in Colorado’s congressional delegation joined over 200 federal lawmakers in urging the court to reconsider the constitutional right to an abortion.
Roe v. Wade
As some states move to pass the harshest abortion restrictions seen in decades, Colorado remains one of a handful of states where reproductive rights are safest.
Pro-choice candidates, many of them women, won big in Colorado on Election Day, and with their victories bring Colorado one step closer to ensuring access to abortion despite potential restrictions on reproductive rights from the Trump administration and the U.S. Supreme Court.
Brauchler Says Those With Concerns About Roe Are “Fearmongers” After Once Saying Roe Was Wrongly Decided
Colorado’s Republican candidate for Attorney General, George Brauchler, who once said Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided, dismissed those with concerns that the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark abortion rights ruling will be overturned as “fearmongers.”
During a talk radio interview early this month, Colorado Attorney General and Republican gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Coffman expressed her personal opposition to the landmark Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion–even though she accepts the law as “settled.”
Asked by a conservative talk-radio host whether U.S. Senators have private discussions with U.S Supreme Court nominees about cases like Roe v. Wade, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) said Thursday they “absolutely occur,” but Gardner dodged a follow-up question about whether he’d discussed Roe with Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s high court nominee.
