Mike Coffman Abortion and Rape Exceptions: Current Abortion Legislation in Colorado
When a reporter asked Mike Coffman, the Republican candidate for Senate in Colorado, about rape exceptions for abortions, the politician responded that he is "not focused on social issues." Coffman is known to personally be pro-life, but do his views represent his state's when it comes to "social issues" like abortion?
Additionally, according to NARAL Pro-Choice, Colorado’s “‘bubble bill’ should protect you from harassment outside an abortion clinic. A person who approaches within eight feet of another person without his/her consent within 100 feet of a health care facility or knowingly impedes another person’s entry or exit from a health care facility, commits a misdemeanor under Colorado state law.”
