After Stacking the Courts With Anti-Choice Judges, Gardner Refuses to Oppose Alabama’s Rigid Anti-Choice Law
Cory Gardner just confirmed his fifth anti-choice
federal judge in the span of a month, which is what you expect from a
rubber-stamp that has approved nearly 99 percent of President Trump’s federal
judicial nominees. By stacking the courts with anti-choice judges who are
outside the mainstream, Gardner has laid the
foundation for this new round of
uncompromising attacks on women’s health and rights.

Colorado Times Reporter: Gardner:
It’s “Up to the States,” like Alabama, to Decide if Abortion Should Be Banned
May 20, 2019
- After initially dodging a question from a reporter about Alabama’s abortion ban, saying he was late to a meeting and had no time to talk, Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner has now stated his general support for the controversial measure.
- That’s consistent with his previous stance against Roe v. Wade, which, if overturned, would allow states to ban abortion.
- …Gardner’s position of leaving it “up to the states” to decide about abortion is consistent with anti-abortion Republicans who want Roe v. Wade struck down.
- But in a 2010 Colorado Family Institute candidate questionnaire, he’s on record opposing the landmark abortion decision.
- In the survey, Gardner indicated that he opposed the “U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion decision.”
- In his run for U.S. Senate in 2014, he reversed his opposition to a personhood abortion ban in Colorado, but he continued to support a federal personhood bill, which he cosponsored, that aimed to outlaw abortion nationally.
