-Time to speak the truth about how taxpayer dollars for Planned Parenthood are used.
As the 2014 election season wears on, two things are clear: Democrats are continuing to wage a taxpayer-funded war on women, and some Republicans are too scared to stop them.
The Colorado Senate race is just one example of this dynamic. Recently, Senator Mark Udall’s (D-CO) ally, Planned Parenthood, ran an ad targeting Udall’s GOP opponent, Rep. Cory Gardner, on contraception. Likewise, Udall ran an ad accusing Gardner of wanting to ban contraception.
Gardner’s response was a full-fledged retreat from his previous pro-life positions. First, he placed an ad saying he no longer backed a personhood amendment to the Constitution because of the beliefs of Coloradoans. More recently, he wrote an op-edpromoting over-the-counter access to “the pill.”
If Udall and Gardner really want to help woman, they should stand together against Planned Parenthood and defund it.
