LETTERS: Colorado’s federal delegation needs to address the Trump-packed Supreme Court

Editor: The Trump-packed Supreme Court has just overturned 50 years of precedent with Roe v. Wade. This illegitimate court can do anything they want to do. They can overturn Obergefell v Hodges or allow states to make birth control illegal, criminalize gayness, whatever they want, unless Democrats take advantage of their quickly-slipping majority and do something. I am begging Sen. Bennet and Sen. Hickenlooper to either eliminate the filibuster, or carve out exceptions for voting rights and civil rights. Otherwise, the last chance we have at saving our democracy will be lost. I urge my elected officials not to let our rights die on their watch. We cannot let America slip into a religious autocracy.

Lots of drama in this letter, Gina. Begging our representatives to see things your way implies that there is no real other way.

The Supreme Court is not an illegitimate Court just because you say it.

Seems to me that church attendance goes a different way than leading us to a religious autocracy.

Nice of the Sentinel to print your letter begging for a better America, in your personal opinion. I have begging of my own.

Much better to have term or age limits. Court packing can work both ways!

But the filibuster must go.

Didn’t think my censored remarks were that bad or are you now just protecting letter writers?
