Rep. Nordberg, GOP lawmakers call for state investigation into local Planned Parenthood affiliates

The Colorado Statesman

Thirty Colorado Republican legislators called Wednesday for a state investigation into Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains and whether it is involved in “the sale and transfer of fetal body parts.”

“A civilized society cannot allow unethical and illegal medical practices such as the harvesting of aborted human organs and babies for monetary gain. I would hope that even proponents of abortion would agree to that much,” said state Rep. Dan Nordberg, R-Colorado Springs, in a press release.

Guest Commentary

Littwin: Cory Gardner and the GOP adopt abortion politics and a government-shutdown showdown … again

Guest Contributor

OK, it wasn’t like we weren’t warned. But here was the U.S. Senate not only voting on whether to defund Planned Parenthood, but promising that this is just the beginning of a long fight, maybe one that would last even longer than Congress’s summer recess.

As expected, Democrats successfully filibustered the bill, but the defunding exercise, in some form, will be back. And not only will it be back, but some Republicans are even threatening to attach it to this fall’s spending bills so we can — yes — face yet another shutdown showdown.

Angela Williams ignites Senate District 33 campaign

The Colorado Statesman

The word “lose” isn’t in Rep. Angela William’s vocabulary. A Democrat representing Colorado’s House District 7 seat since 2010, she has never lost any of her three campaigns for public office. William’s declared she intends to maintain that winning record, announcing her candidacy for Colorado Senate District 33 in an email sent to supporters and the media on May 12. To date, Williams is the only candidate from any party to file papers with the Colorado Secretary of State's office to seek election to SD 33 in 2016.
