DENVER: Following last week’s domestic terrorist attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, ProgressNow Colorado, the state’s largest online progressive advocacy organization and NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado will join together to demand that right-wing politicians in Colorado at every level apologize for their false claims about the organization that are increasing violence against women’s healthcare providers.

“This attack on Planned Parenthood was domestic terrorism,” said Karen Middleton of NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado. “I believe it was incited by many individuals and organizations who have escalated their hate speech. It is time for Coloradans, and all of us, to stand up and say ‘no more.'”

“It’s time to name names,” said Amy Runyon-Harms of ProgressNow Colorado. “It’s time to call out and stop this dangerous campaign of lies from right-wing politicians before more lives are lost.”

WHAT: Press conference calling on right-wing politicians to apologize for false attacks on Planned Parenthood

WHO: ProgressNow Colorado, NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado

WHEN: Tuesday, December 1, 2015 at 11:00AM
