Sen. Foreman altercation with UI student lobbyists


Idaho  Sen. Dan Foreman, R-Moscow,  shouted at a University of Idaho student group affiliated with Planned Parenthood Monday in Boise. The students were lobbying for birth control and sex education, according to the Idaho Statesman.

The student group, Planned Parenthood Generation Action at University of Idaho, was participating in a lobbying event and had originally set up a meeting with Foreman for Monday.  The meeting, however, was abruptly canceled that morning.

The students left a note and condoms in Foreman’s office, then attended other scheduled meetings with lawmakers, the Statesman reports.

Later, during an exchange in the hallway of the Idaho Capitol, Foreman began shouting at the student group.

“Abortion is murder. I stand against it,” Foreman said in a video The Argonaut obtained from Planned Parenthood Generation at University of Idaho. “I am a Roman Catholic. I am a conservative Republican. I think what you guys do stinks.”

The Argonaut will continue to cover this story as more information becomes available.
