Valerie Richardson The Washington TimesMay 23, 2019

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold conferred with Planned Parenthood officials on a press release before issuing her ban on office travel to Alabama over legislation prohibiting most abortions.

In emails obtained by 9News in Denver, Ms. Griswold’s communications director, Serena Woods, asked two Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains officials last week for their “thoughts/edits” on a draft release.

The Planned Parenthood officials were Whitney Phillips, vice president of communications, and policy director Jack Teter.

“Draft of what we are thinking attached. LMK thoughts/edits. If you could turn around as quickly as possible that would be great because SOS wants to move fast,” Ms. Woods said in a May 16 email to “Whitney Jack.”
