Denver Post solicits donations for pro-abortion groups with ActBlue link
For Immediate Release

DENVER, CO – The Denver Post is actively soliciting contributions from its readers for pro-abortion nonprofits via ActBlue in its latest story over the fallout from a leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court.
ActBlue is the left’s primary fundraising platform that allows “donors to contribute online to Democratic campaigns, political action committees and outside groups that often support the the party’s policy goals.”
According to CNBC, “Democrats and their affiliated outside groups have raised more than $7 million” via ActBlue “since a report first unveiled a leaked draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn the historic Roe v. Wade ruling.”
The ActBlue link in the Denver Post story links to a “broader list of abortion funds” that also includes resources to “support progressive candidates.”
Many of the 29 nonprofits listed on the ActBlue donation page are overtly political, like the National Women’s Law Center which engages in litigation to support pro-choice causes.
Denver Post editorial page editor Megan Schrader defended the paper, accusing those who pointed out the Post’s ethically dubious decision of “shaming women.”
Conrad Swanson, the reporter who authored the story, also dismissed suggestions fundraising for liberal political groups in the hard news section was a breach of journalistic ethics.
“lol bruh i couldn’t read this at first because i muted you on here,” he tweeted.
If you plan on covering the Denver Post’s decision to fundraise for liberal pro-abortion groups, please consider the following quote from Compass Colorado.
“Publishing an ActBlue link to fundraise for liberal pro-abortion groups is brazen, even for the Denver Post,” said Compass Colorado Executive Director Kyle Kohli.
“At this point there is no denying it, the paper literally is using their ‘journalism’ to finance and promote a liberal agenda.”
