Weld District Attorney Ken Buck under fire, even from GOP rival, for abortion remark
January 24, 2014
Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck, the presumed Republican front runner for U.S. Senate, is under fire from a primary rival for a comment on abortion.
State Rep. Amy Stephens, R-Monument, is seizing on reports from left-leaning bloggers who have jumped on Buck, saying he's comparing cancer to being pregnant.
In an interview on 560-AM KLZ earlier this week, Buck said he understands a woman wants to be in control of her body.
"It's certainly the feeling that I had when I was a cancer patient, I wanted to be in control of the decisions that were made concerning my body — there is another fundamental issue at stake. And that's the life of the unborn child," said Buck, noting his previous bout with lymphoma, which went into remission last year.
