2020 SENATE RACE

CORY GARDNER (R), Incumbent

Gardner has voted to block patients who use public health-care programs from accessing care at Planned Parenthood — and to ban safe, legal access to abortion.

I have signed the personhood petition. I have taken the petitions to my church and circulating them to my church. And I have a legislative record that backs up my support for life.

Gardner has repeatedly joined efforts by the Trump-Pence administration to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) — jeopardizing health coverage for nearly 600,000 Coloradans. During the ultimately failed 2017 effort to repeal the ACA, Gardner reportedly told Republican colleagues that “donors are furious” because he and fellow senators “haven’t kept our promise” to undermine access to health care for millions.

Every 2017 proposal to repeal the ACA would have blocked patients who rely on public health care programs from accessing care at Planned Parenthood health centers. Gardner voted four times that year alone to block access to the birth control, STI testing and treatment, and cancer screenings that Planned Parenthood provides. The following year, Gardner voted to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh — who before his Supreme Court nomination had a long record of ruling to limit access to safe, legal abortion.
