“My name is Tim Neville, and I’m THE pro-Life candidate running for the nomination to take on and defeat Democrat Michael Bennet in November 2016.”
That’s how Neville, who’s considered the frontrunner in the GOP Senate primary, describes himself in a recent fundraising email.
And judging from the letter (excerpt below), it’s hard to imagine there’s a more anti-choice candidate anywhere on the planet.
Neville even confirms that the Live at Conception Act is a personhood bill, something Sen. Cory Gardner was willfully confused about.
In contrast to Gardner, who was obviously worried women would revolt against his history of Neville-like positions on abortion, Neville brags that “politicians in both parties” opposed his bill that would have “forced abortion providers to offer women the opportunity to see an ultrasound, saving thousands of babies in the process.” (Translation: women would be required to have an ultrasound prior to having an abortion.)
We know Republicans in Colorado like to modify their abortion positions once they face a general-election audience. See, for example, Gardner, Rep. Mike Coffman, Bob Beauprez, Rep. Ken “Buckpedal” Buck.
But unlike those guys, you get the feeling that Neville really believes he can win over both primary and general election voters by being himself, regardless of the issue. That will set him apart from recent state-wide Republican candidates. And it will make things interesting.
Excerpt from Neville Nov. 16 fundraising email:
…And if the good folks in Colorado send me to Washington, I WILL BE the abortion lobby’s #1 enemy — and I’ll wear that label with a badge of honor.
If elected to the U.S. Senate, I will END ALL taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood and abortion providers.
I’m not afraid of the powerful abortion lobby.
During my time in the State Senate, I’ve led the fight to protect innocent unborn children.
I sponsored “The Women’s RIGHT Act” (SB 15-285), which would require abortion clinics to offer women the opportunity to see an ultrasound before murdering an innocent baby.
Studies show that 90% of women who see an ultrasound change their mind about having an abortion and instead choose life.
The baby butchers at Planned Parenthood often mislead women and tell them that their babies are already dead in the womb and that they need an immediate abortion — refusing to show them an ultrasound.
My bill would have forced abortion providers to offer women the opportunity to see an ultrasound, saving thousands of babies in the process. Unfortunately, politicians in both parties teamed up to kill my bill.
I also sponsored “The Women’s Health Protection Act” (HB 15-1128), which would require abortion clinics to adhere to the same medical standards as all other “medical” facilities in Colorado do.
Currently in Colorado, there’s not a single medical standard that abortion clinics must adhere to.
In fact, some of the most disgusting videos of Planned Parenthood murdering, cutting to pieces and selling unborn baby parts were filmed right here in Denver, Colorado, in one of Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinics!
My bill would have exposed Planned Parenthood’s illegal selling of murdered baby body parts.
Because of my dedication to fighting to protect unborn children, I received the Colorado Campaign for Life’s Guardian Legislator of the Year Award.
Of course, my ultimate goal is to ENDING the practice of abortion in America once and for all.
But I will vote and fight for any bill or legislation that limits and slows down the murder of unborn children.
If you want a pro-Life champion in the U.S. Senate, can I count on you to sign your “Pro-Life” petition right away and let the abortion lobby know we mean business about ending abortion in America?
If elected to the U.S. Senate, I pledge to you — with every ounce of energy I’ve got — I’ll lead the fight to protect the unborn by:
>>> ENDING all taxpayer funding for not just Planned Parenthood, but for ALL abortion providers nationwide. I’ll fight to make sure not a single dime of taxpayer money is used to murder innocent children;
>>> Introducing a Life at Conception Act, which would federally recognize life as beginning at the moment of conception;
>>> Supporting and confirming ONLY U.S. Supreme Court nominees who you and I can count on to overturn Roe v. Wade;
>>> Working to ban the sale and distribution of chemical abortifacients like RU 486.
As you can see, I’m committed to protecting the Sanctity of Life from the moment of conception to natural passing.
I’m confident and strong in this belief — and I will NEVER waver from my position.
You have my word on that.
