In the wake of Friday's shootings at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, two groups, Progress Now Colorado and Pro Choice Colorado are holding a press conference at the State Capitol in Denver on Tuesday to demand that politicians apologize for what the groups say are "false claims" about Planned Parenthood.

Event organizers say that the shootings were a "terrorist attack" that was incited by many individuals and organizations with escalated "hate speech" against Planned Parenthood.

The event starts at 11 a.m., on the front steps of the State Capitol.
