DENVER - Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado, the political arm of Planned Parenthood, says they have sent over 27,000 mailers to voters in Colorado Springs and Pueblo to "educate" them ahead of the September 10 recall special elections of State Senate President John Morse and State Senator Angela Giron.
A news release issued Monday said the embattled Democratic State Senators, "are being targeted in unprecedented recall efforts by a small majority of out-of-touch voters in their districts because the Senators voted for common sense gun safety laws."
The group believes the recall elections will be, "extremely important for women's health issues because the candidates opposing them (Bernie Herpin and George Rivera) are both lifelong anti-choice, anti-women's health advocates."
Cathy Alderman, PPVC Vice President Public Affairs is quoted in the news release as called Morse and Giron pro-choice champions in the state legislature.
"These unprecedented attacks on fierce advocates of women's health are unacceptable," Alderman said. "The recall process is in place to remove legislators whom are corrupt or have done illegal things in office; not so that we can force elections every time an extremist group disagrees with a vote."
"Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado is working hard to preserve the integrity of our elections. With support from our committed voters, we can send the message that Coloradoans do not support the undermining of our political process or our pro-choice majority."
According to the Colorado Secretary of State's Office, Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado Issues Committee was formed August 15. The committee's first report of contributions and expenditures has been filed with the Secretary of State's Office and will be published tomorrow.
