This Congressional candidate was at a loss for words after he got caught paying for an abortion

It happens far too often.

Politicians claim to be Pro-Life when running for office only to turn around and vote for abortion once safely in office.

And this Congressional candidate was at a loss for words after he got caught paying for an abortion.

Most politicians will say just about anything if they believe it’ll help them get elected to office.

And once in office, they don’t vote based on what’s right or wrong or what’s good or bad for their constituents.

They vote based on what they think will help them get re-elected.

Pro-Life voters understand this reality, as Republicans often claim to support the sanctity of life on the campaign trail.

But their actions often do not match their rhetoric.

Richard Holtorf is a Republican State Representative in Colorado who is running for Congress in the Fourth Congressional District.

In 2020, Holtorf sponsored a bill to ban abortion after 22 weeks.

Of course, a ban after 15 weeks would only stop six to seven percent of all abortions.

A ban after 22 weeks would stop even less, essentially allowing the abortion mills to continue running.

Holtorf is a pro-life phony who pushed a fake abortion ban.

And he just got caught paying for an abortion.

“Holtorf, who is running for a US Congress seat, made headlines in January for an eyebrow-raising revelation on the floor of the Colorado House that he once paid for a former girlfriend’s abortion so she could ‘live her best life,’” the New York Post reported. “The staunchly pro-life rep also admitted to impregnating “another beautiful woman,” but said they ultimately gave the child up for adoption.”

During a recent interview with KUSA, host Kyle Clark drilled Holtorf and called him out for his hypocrisy.

“If abortion was the best choice for your girlfriend, why try to deny that choice to other women?” KUSA host Kyle Clark asked.

After a back and forth, Clark again asked “Why do you seek to deny the choice that you said was best for your girlfriend’s life, to other women?”

“I don’t, I don’t,” a flustered Holtorf responded. 

“You have voted to restrict abortion access,” Clark shot back.

“I have,” Holtorf admitted.

This is not the first time Holtorf has been called out for his contradictory actions.

Democrats trolled him on it a few months back.

“I want to thank Rep. Holtorf for the courage to share how reproductive freedom has helped the women in his life,” Democrat Representative Lorena Garcia tweeted. “Thank you for sharing your story of supporting a girlfriend when she chose abortion and even paying for it.”

Holtorf serves as a reminder to pro-life Americans about the tendency of Republicans to compromise on abortion once in office.
