REPORT: State got Planned Parenthood to help craft ‘travel ban’ against Alabama


A Colorado official asked Planned Parenthood to help write the Alabama travel ban in the wake of that state’s new abortion limits, according to documents.

On May 16, Democratic Secretary of State Jena Griswold announced that her office would no longer allow taxpayer-funded travel to Alabama to protest the country’s most comprehensive abortion ban, but not before getting Planned Parenthood’s approval. A worker in her office turned to the nation’s largest abortion provider for help crafting the official taxpayer-funded communication. Griswold’s communications director Serena Woods emailed a draft asking for edits from Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains official hours before the policy went public.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Draft of what we are thinking attached. LMK [let me know] thoughts/edits. If you could turn around as quickly as possible that would be great because SOS wants to move fast,” she said in an email obtained by Channel 9 News in Colorado.

Planned Parenthood’s Whitney Phillips returned an edited copy asking Sec. Griswold to strike out “right to choose” from the announcement, as well as track changes explaining the edits. She proposed changing the pro-choice language to instead accuse Alabama of damaging “reproductive health care” in the passage of abortion limits. That rhetoric, she said, polls better than traditional pro-abortion labels.
