If you get lost on your way to the Women’s March this Saturday and find yourself walking past the “March for Abolition,” don’t expect to hear any homage paid to Frederick Douglass, Nat Turner or Harriet Tubman. The so called “Colorado Right To Life” organization has foolishly appropriated language rooted in the anti-slavery movement in a botched attempt to compare apples to orange seeds. Demonstrators will congregate outside the Stapleton Planned Parenthood on Jan. 20 to intimidate anyone seeking a wide range of reproductive health services while preaching abortion “abolition.”

… Twenty Years Ago This Week in the Colorado Statesman … Coloradans were in a proud position. The state's very own were to head both of the nation's major political parties … Gov. Roy Romer acknowledged that his new post as general chairman of the Democratic National Committee — yes, while still governor — would make a 1998 run for U.S. Senate “less likely.” Romer admitted that it would be impossible “to wear three hats” — governor, DNC general chair, and U.S. Senate candidate, but also said he had not made a final decision whether to run or not. During a press conference to discuss his surprise ascension to the DNC post, the governor said that President Bill Clinton had called him the day before the legislative session began, asking him to resign the governorship.
