Anti-abortion organization continues to attack state senator

Colorado State Sen. Beth Martinez Humenik continues to take heat from the Colorado Campaign for Life (CCL), which has been seeking a “strong God-fearing, pro-lifer” to challenge the Thornton Republican in the GOP primary election this year.

In an email to supporters last year, CCL criticized Humenik for her votes on an abortion bill, claiming that she betrayed her conservative base.

This week, prior to the beginning of the GOP’s county assemblies, where a challenger to Humenik would emerge, if there is one, CCL posted an image on its Facebook page, labeling Humenik a “pro-abort.” CCL commented:

A Colorado Campaign for Life Member sent us an e-mail from Senator Beth Martinez Humenik, touting her experience with a certain women’s group [Jewish Women International].
“It was a great reminder for women to support and empower each other every day.”
Here’s a reminder for Pro-lifers in SD24, Senator Martinez-Humenik voted to empower abortion facilities…

In the comment section, CCL Director Christy Rodriquez apparently wrote, “I’ve wondered the same thing, and if she has had an abortion, I sincerely pray she seeks repentance and forgiveness. But, if a politician doesn’t mind we kill babies, we shouldn’t mind killing their career.”

A call to CCL to confirm the Facebook posts and to determine whether CCL had identified someone to primary Humenik, who represents a key swing district, was not immediately returned.

    So, I guess they REALLY must hate having a Republican Senate Majority.

    Kudos to Humenik-Martinez for standing up to the vicious hypocrites in her own party.

    Who is the bat shit crazy, bark-at-the-moon loon is going to take her down in the GOP primary?

      Adam Matkowsky is trying to win the HD24 seat as a former Democrat / Unaffiliated.  He's running as a pragmatic, get ' er done, law and order guy, not taking a stand on the abortion issue at all.

      There was a Democrat named Dariush Namazi running in the last cycle, but it doesn't appear from TRACER that he has an active campaign now.

      All are running against a very strong Democrat with good name rec, (thanks to Steve Lebsock), Faith Winter.

      To answer your question, it’s possible that a loon could be nominated at the Republican County assembly – but nothing formally announced so far.

    Isn't this known as eating your own?

    What's Pro-Life about that?

  5. Conserv. Head Banger says:

    Opposition to abortion and contraception is almost totally religion based. The CCL needs to read Article VI of the US Constitution.
