Colorado Democrats in the Secretary of State’s office were exposed this week colluding with Planned Parenthood to craft a press release announcing the state’s boycott of Alabama. The boycott, which Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold announced last week, is intended as a statement of protest against Alabama’s new law banning nearly all forms of abortion. Thanks to reporting from Denver’s 9News, we now know that before they announced the boycott, they asked officials at the nation’s foremost abortionist organization to look over their press release and make sure it fit the agenda.
According to 9News, Griswold’s communications director Serena Woods emailed a draft of the press release to both Whitney Phillips and Jack Teter, two prominent officials at Planned Parenthood.
“Whitney & Jack,” she wrote. “Draft of what we are thinking attached. LMK thoughts/edits. If you could turn around as quickly as possible that would be great because SOS wants to move fast.”
Phillips got right back to her.
“Thanks Serena, I believe our CEO is going to call the Secretary and share some additional feedback,” she wrote. “In the meantime, my feedback on the media release is attached. It feels to me the Election Center part is a little inside baseball for most folks and the travel authorization is a little more digestible for the mainstream/media.”
In her feedback, Phillips also advised Colorado officials to change up some of the language. “We don’t recommend using right to choose/pro-life/pro-choice language anymore, all polling indicates it is further polarizing and turns folks off.”
Confronted with this by 9News, Griswold was unapologetic. The Democrat said: “I consulted with Planned Parenthood about this decision, as they are one of the largest providers of, and leading experts on, women’s health care.”
We assume this statement was also approved by Planned Parenthood, which has been trying for years to re-brand itself as a “women’s health care” organization.
It has been disheartening in recent years to see how fully the mainstream media has adopted Planned Parenthood’s talking points on abortion. Stories like this one out of Colorado, though, show exactly how it happens. If a Democrat from up there is consulting with Planned Parenthood abortionists before releasing a public statement, you can bet that reporters at The New York Times are running copy by them as well. Thus, you can see that it’s not just that the media is biased towards one side of the abortion debate, the content they produce is actually written by the abortion industry.
Thank goodness there are still a handful of independent local journalists who haven’t swallowed the Kool-Aid.
