Colorado Springs’ congressional delegation — Rep. Doug Lamborn and Sens. Cory Gardner and Michael Bennet — are all men. So how do they vote when it comes to issues impacting women? The short answer is that the lone Democrat, Bennet, has a more pro-woman track record. But if you want to see details, you can check their votes and positions using these helpful resources:

• Planned Parenthood’s 2019 Congressional Scorecard, tinyurl.com/Indy-PlanParent, provides an issue-by-issue accounting of votes and generates an overall score on reproductive rights — Lamborn and Gardner, 0 percent; Bennet, 100 percent.

• On the Issues’ website, ontheissues.org, lets users evaluate House and Senate members’ positions and votes by subject, including Abortion, Families & Children, and Principles & Values.

• Vote Smart, votesmart.org, lets you track positions on a wide array of issues for Congress members plus a range of Colorado’s elected officials.

• The Human Rights Campaign (HRC.org/scorecard), American Association of University Women (tinyurl.com/Indy-AAUW) and NARAL/Pro-Choice America (tinyurl.com/Indy-NARAL) all have congressional scorecards.
