Governor Jared Polis (D) — who seems to be eyeing a run for president in 2024 — signed three bills on Friday, April 14, 2023, with much fanfare and doublespeak.  The bills make Colorado, a state that is already one of the most permissive about abortion, even more so, and they increase access to transgender surgery.

This is the work of the Democrat-controlled Legislature in the state, to which Polis won't or can't say no, perhaps indicating how he would govern as president.  Legislators also use doublespeak in the bills themselves...

he bills: SB-23-188, SB23-189, SB23-190...

Polis is being dishonest. The Colorado Legislature is, too, in order to enact an agenda.

SB23-188 comes with the title and subtitle "Protections For Accessing Reproductive Health Care: Concerning protections for accessing reproductive health care."

"The bill prevents the state from recognizing any prosecutions or lawsuits related to anyone who receives or assists in abortions or so-called 'gender-affirming care,'" reports Fox News... Notice that the Legislature uses doublespeak by using "reproductive health care" instead of "abortion" and "gender-affirming health-care services" instead of "surgery to alter bodies of minors to make them look like members of the opposite sex."...

"The third bill blocks what pro-abortion activists and Democrats view as 'deceptive' practices by crisis pregnancy centers, which encourage mothers to choose options other than abortion," Fox News reports...

Colorado voters have a lot to worry about with this Democratic-controlled Legislature, their faux Libertarian governor, and the leaders' use of doublespeak. ..
