Rep. Lauren Boebert Accuses Democratic Opponent of Exploiting Abortion Issue for Fundraising Purposes

Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, a Republican representing Colorado, has made serious accusations against her potential Democratic opponent for the 2024 election. Boebert has accused Adam Frisch of capitalizing on the tragedy of innocent lives lost by using it as a fundraising strategy. The allegations stem from a campaign email sent by Frisch, which highlighted his family members’ extensive involvement in the abortion industry.

In the email blast sent on Saturday, Frisch, who is vying for the Republican-held seat in Colorado, emphasized his family’s background as abortion doctors and criticized Boebert’s staunch pro-life stance, labeling it as “extreme.” One of Frisch’s family members mentioned is his father, Melvin Frisch, who has been actively involved in the abortion industry since the early 1970s. Melvin Frisch’s career began during his service in the Public Health Service on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in northeastern Montana.

According to the fundraising email, Frisch expressed that his father’s work as an abortionist, coupled with his 1982 publication analyzing the safety of dilation and evacuation abortions after 13 weeks of pregnancy, significantly influenced his own perspective on the issue.

Boebert’s strong response to Frisch’s campaign email indicates the potential for a heated political battle in the upcoming election. The clash over abortion, a deeply divisive issue, adds another layer of intensity to an already contentious race for the Colorado seat.

Both Boebert and Frisch are expected to campaign vigorously as they seek to sway voters and secure their positions in the 2024 election. It remains to be seen how this exchange will impact their respective campaigns and shape the narrative surrounding the race for Colorado’s political representation.

According to the Foundations of Life Pregnancy Center, dilation and evacuation abortions usually occur within the 13th to 24th week of pregnancy, but the “fetus is too large to be broken up by suction alone and will not pass through the suction tubing.”

The center describes how after “the cervix is stretched open, the doctor pulls out the fetal parts with forceps. The fetus’ skull is crushed to ease removal. A sharp tool (called a curette) is also used to scrape out the contents of the uterus, removing any remaining tissue.”

Melvin Frisch was also medical director of Planned Parenthood Arizona, which his congressional candidate son said “helped train the next generation of health care providers at Planned Parenthood,” according to the email.

Frisch noted in the email how he is excited that his OB-GYN sister, Hope Frisch, is continuing his father’s “legacy” in the field.

“My opponent, Lauren Boebert, wants you to think that women having the freedom to make their own medical decisions is some extreme idea. It’s not,” Frisch said of his pro-life contender.

Boebert has a history of siding with pro-life legislation in Congress, most recently introducing the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2023 in January to place a one-year moratorium on federal funds given to Planned Parenthood.

“Abortion is the Frisch family business,” Boebert told Fox News Digital in an exclusive statement. “Abortions paid for Adam’s privileged childhood and private schooling, and abortionists help fund his campaign.”

“It’s disgusting Adam Frisch chooses to fundraise off the killing of innocent babies, but everyone needs to understand for Adam, abortions mean lining his family’s pockets and filling his campaign coffers,” the congresswoman said, hitting back at the Democrat’s email.

Frisch’s campaign did not respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
