Democratic State Lawmakers Criticize ‘Democrats for Life’ At Inaugural Conference In Denver
“Our Democratic values are not up for debate,” said State Rep. Leslie Herod (D-Denver), adding that reproductive choice is an essential part of the party’s platform. “We and our voters know that access to an abortion is not just a women’s issue. It’s an economic issue, a health care issue, a queer issue, and so much more.”
“If you don’t stand for those things, you are not a Democrat,” said Herod. “Show me your party registration.”
NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado’s Karen Middleton pointed out that many speakers at the DFLA conference, called the “I Want My Party Back” conference, aren’t even Democrats.
