Letter: Thank you, Lisa Cutter

I am so proud of Lisa Cutter, my representative in House District 25, for sponsoring and helping to pass the Reproductive Health Equity Act. This bill, signed April 4 by Gov. Polis, will protect women’s abortion rights in Colorado, even if the Supreme Court reverses Roe v. Wade. We know a large majority of Coloradans support access to abortion, but we cannot depend on the federal government to protect that right. Faced with losing federal protections, states must safeguard women’s freedom to make their own decisions. Colorado is leading the way, as it led the way 55 years ago by becoming the first state to decriminalize abortion.

Conservative Coloradan legislators have tried dozens of times to introduce laws that would turn women seeking abortions and doctors helping them into criminals. Lisa Cutter joined the majority in preventing that from happening. Grisly images are typically part of conservatives’ arguments to limit women’s ability to make health care and family decisions, when in reality, 70% of Colorado abortions are by chemical means.

Thank you, Lisa Cutter, for bringing compassion and nuance to this highly charged issue. I look forward to your being elected as our state senator in District 20 in November 2022.

Cheri Rubin, Evergreen
