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.

Why do these people feel the need to “poke the bear?” At a time when we need governmental bodies, state, local and federal is confrontation for no purpose seem like a good idea. Or not. I would remind everyone that Colorado was the first to legalize abortion in 1967, so Roe vs. Wade is kind of moot.
So why get everyone’s panties in a bunch over an issue that is no longer germane?
