Colorado Governor Candidate Jared Polis: Women Will Die if Pro-Life Walker Stapleton is Elected

Colorado Democrat Jared Polis slammed his pro-life gubernatorial opponent recently by claiming women would die under Republican Walker Stapleton’s administration.

Polis, who supports aborting unborn babies for any reason up to birth, made the unfounded accusation during a Planned Parenthood event in August, the Colorado Sun reports.

“If Walker Stapleton was elected, mortality for women would likely go up under these policies he’s advocating,” Polis said in reference to Stapleton’s pro-life stance.

The news outlet pointed out that Polis did not provide any evidence to back up his claim, and Stapleton’s campaign quickly refuted the allegations. But the pro-abortion Democrat has not backed away from his radically pro-abortion platform.

If elected, Polis promised to support abortion on demand in Colorado — one of the last states where late-term unborn babies are still openly and legally aborted for any reason. A congressman, he has a 100 percent pro-abortion voting record, and even opposed such modest restrictions as not forcing taxpayers to fund abortions.

Polis said he also would advocate for a state law to “protect the right to abortion” in the event that Roe v. Wade is overturned, according to the report.

“This is a more real threat than ever before,” Polis said, referring to the U.S. Supreme Court and abortion. “Coloradans’ reproductive health care is very much on the ballot this election.”

Meanwhile, Stapleton supports a platform that actually would protect human lives. He promised to be a “pro-life governor” and received the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee.

He recently said he believes life begins at conception, and he would work to protect unborn babies and mothers from abortion, if elected.
