Colorado’s anti-choice Republican gubernatorial candidate drew criticism this week after saying that a governor has “very little impact” on laws restricting abortion.
Abortion rights organizations in Colorado launched a campaign Tuesday opposing a proposed constitutional amendment on the November ballot that would add “unborn human beings” to the state’s criminal code.
In a radio interview, Republican Rep. Cory Gardner said his opponent, Sen. Mark Udall, is “trying to distract voters” by attacking Gardner for his positions on abortion and contraception, which, according to Gardner, “aren’t top of mind for people.”
Colorado GOP senatorial candidate Cory Gardner proposed on Thursday that oral contraception be available for over-the-counter purchase. Critics point out that Gardner’s position runs counter to his record of votes in favor of restricting access to contraception.
Democratic Sen. Mark Udall claimed Monday that his opponent, Rep. Cory Gardner (R), supports federal personhood legislation, even though Gardner recently unendorsed a state “personhood” amendment.
