ATTORNEY GENERAL WEISER TAKES A STAND FOR COLORADO VALUES BY JOINING TITLE X GAG RULE LAWSUIT AGAINST THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

Denver – NARAL Pro-Colorado Executive Director Karen Middleton today issued the following statement in support of Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser’s decision to join a multi-state lawsuit challenging the Trump administration’s directive imposing a gag rule on health care organizations that receive Title X family planning funding.

“Attorney General Weiser’s actions challenging the gag rule reflects our longstanding pro-choice Colorado values. We thank Attorney General Weiser for standing up and fighting for Coloradans today.

As Coloradans, we believe that access to reproductive health care, including abortion care, is a fundamental right, and that everyone deserves medically-accurate information about their health and their health care options. The Trump Administration wants to overturn Roe v. Wade, and they want to deny access to health care for more than 50,000 Coloradans by implementing a a gag rule. This is wrong.

Going in to 2020,  just as we did in 2018, we will be communicating to our members and supporters statewide who represents their values and who fights for them and who does not. The Trump Administration and its enablers in Congress like Senator Cory Gardner represent a direct threat to our rights and pro-choice values as Coloradans.”
