Gov. Polis says abortion is bad, mmmmkay?
As a matter of fact, all Democrats think abortion is bad, and that’s why they are working to reduce the need for abortions, Polis told CNN with a straight face.
“Democrats don’t believe abortion is good. We think it’s bad,” Polis said.
Polis’s comments will come as a great shock to Coloradans who’ve watched the state’s abortion law become wildly radicalized from just the first trimester, now up until the actual moment of a child’s birth — still known in some circles as murder.
So now what?
Are Democrats seriously changing their tune about abortion, or is Polis just lying through his teeth — again — and pretending at libertarian leanings because he wants to be president?
We kid. Of course, Polis is just yanking the chains of CNN’s audience that now numbers somewhere in the upper double digits.
Page Two reports that the slew of bills Polis has signed since taking office has made Colorado one of the most lenient states in the U.S. when it comes to abortion, allowing it for any reason, at any time.
The results of those bills led to the highest number of abortions performed in Colorado since 1985: 14,154 to be exact, according to a 9News report. Colorado had a record high number of 17,601 abortions in 1980 but steadily dropped to 4,215 by 2000. Those numbers fluctuated between 9,869 and 11,350 between 2005 and 2018, when Polis took office, and they have steadily increased since.
But whether Polis has seen the political light and has moderated his stance on killing babies in order to advance his career, or just wants to do the right thing, who are we to stand in his way?
We look forward to the “Proudly Preening Pro Choice with Polis!” bumper stickers coming soon to cars stuck in traffic on I-25.
