Response: Point/Counterpoint: Should Colorado remove barriers to Medicaid patients seeking abortion?
In a Point/Counterpoint last week, longtime anti-abortion extremist Kristi Burton Brown defended the dangerous restriction in Colorado that arbitrarily limits the locations where survivors of sexual violence who rely on Medicaid can access abortion care - forcing survivors all across the state to travel to the Denver-metro area for this care.
Coloradans showed up in record numbers to stand up for reproductive rights and abortion care access. Our pink power swept across the state and we elected champions who will fight to ensure Colorado remains a safe haven for abortion care. We defeated a harmful abortion ban, and we held former elected officials accountable for their votes and actions.
The 22-week ban has nothing to do with protecting pregnant people and their health—it has everything to do with a nationwide anti-reproductive rights agenda to ban all abortion care.
Amid the chaos of COVID-19, we’ve seen a complete breakdown of communication between federal and state governments. Instead of prioritizing the public health crisis, the Senate is actively holding hearings to confirm anti-health judges for vacancies that won’t be open for months.
