If you believe that life begins at conception, which I do, then the exception of rape or incest, you're taking a life as a result of the crime of the father, and even though I recognize that it's a terrible misery that that life was conceived under, it is still taking a life in my view, and it's wrong.
- From "an interview with Craig Silverman on KHOW radio."
Ken Buck is opposed to hormone-based birth control methods, some other fors of the pill, IUDs, RU-486 and emergency contraception:
Buck believes life "begins at conception," so birth control methods that don't impact that (i.e. condoms, some forms of the pill) are fine with him. Others that would keep a fertilized egg from implanting like hormone-based birth control methods, some other forms of the pill, IUDs, RU-486 and what's known as the morning-after pill, are not supported by him.

Recall also that Ken Buck, in his primary campaign with Republican Jane Norton, told voters that they should vote for him because he "doesn't wear high heels."
Ken Buck's U.S. Senate opponent, incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet, is pro-choice and has never expressed opposition to Senators wearing high heels.
