DENVER, CO- The following statement was released today, March 2, 2018, by Sarah Taylor-Nanista, Vice President of Public Affairs, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains and Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado.
"Colorado House members today took decision and bipartisan action in sending a message to the people of Colorado that we will not stand for sexual harassment. They set political divisions aside and relied on the factual findings to come to that conclusion.
“Planned Parenthood is grateful that women and men, Republicans and Democrats, stood together and said that #timesup and voted to reject inappropriate behavior. No doubt, every person who has ever been violated, assaulted or was on the receiving end of inappropriate behavior also applauds today’s action.
“Five women came forward – and their bravery should be acknowledged on behalf of all those who aren't able to come forward for any reason. They were believed by an independent third party investigator and supported by the vote today. Planned Parenthood believes it is time to stand together and call this what it is: intolerable.”
Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado is a non-partisan, 501(c)(4) non-profit organization. We engage in educational and electoral activity, including legislative advocacy, voter education, and grassroots organizing to promote the Planned Parenthood mission.
