Colorado House Dems praise Roe vs. Wade. Republicans storm out
Roughly two dozen Colorado House Democrats took to the floor to recognize the 43rd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade decision.
Other House Democrats stood in silence while their collegues touted the importance of the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion across the nation.
Colorado Republicans, however, would have nothing of it. More than half of the GOP House members walked off the floor, several expressing disgust at the Democrats’ comments.
