Democrats love to accuse Republicans of running on fear politics while doing just that. Jared Polis is a Democrat running for governor of Colorado. He’s making some pretty outrageous claims about his Republican opponent.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Polis: Women Will Die if Republican Wins Gubernatorial Election
Democratic Rep. Jared Polis, a candidate for governor of Colorado, warned voters on Thursday that women will likely die at an increased rate if they elect his Republican opponent, Walker Stapleton.
“If Walker Stapleton was elected, mortality for women would likely go up with these policies he’s advocating, the HIV infection rate would go up,” Polis said.
Polis made the remark at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains while speaking with employees and volunteers of the abortion provider, The Denver Post reports. One employee from Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado, the political arm of the organization, mentioned a study that showed mortality for mothers was high in Texas, saying it was becuase the state has a lack of access to clinics like Planned Parenthood.
The study, in reality, found many factors for the higher mortality rate and that lack of access to Planned Parenthood clinics wasn’t the cause, the Post reports.
Hopefully, the people of Colorado can see through this baloney.
