These people gathered today on the steps of the Colorado State Capitol to protest a bill protecting women’s reproductive rights from laws that would limit them. Look at all those self-righteous judgmental people who showed up to make sure nobody infringes on their rights to infringe on women’s rights.
The proposed law, due to be debated today but postponed because a senator was ill, would prohibit any state or local policy that “denies or interferes with an individual’s reproductive health care decisions.” It says the “state, its agencies, institutions, political subdivisions, and unit of local government, shall not enact a policy regarding reproductive health care that is inconsistent with or interferes with access to information based on current evidence based scientific data and medical consensus.” That’s worth repeating: “evidence based scientific data and medical consensus.”
Senate Bill 175, the Reproductive Health Freedom Act, is sponsored by Sen. Andy Kerr, a Democrat who is running for re-election this year. While some contend the bill is a move by Kerr to garner women’s votes, it obviously is going to lose some, too. So the point is probably moot.
In the ongoing war on women, the best defense is a good offense. Bravo, Sen. Kerr.
