The following was written by Karen Middleton (Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado, which is a state partner of the Act for Women campaign) and appeared in the Huffington Post.
As a former Member of the Colorado House of Representatives from Aurora, it was my distinct honor to accompany Colorado’s Speaker of the House, Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, onto the floor for the 2016 General Assembly Opening Day in January. And she made her priorities very clear in her Opening Day speech:
“Ideologues and opportunists will try to impose their views on the woman who isn’t ready to have a family. They will try to rob her of the choice to make her own private medical decisions.
We will defeat these ideologues and opportunists.”
And we did.
