Romney/Ryan/Allen team is too extreme for Virginia women
August 16, 2012
The Washington Post reports, "Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin campaigns in Glen Allen and Springfield Friday, less than a week after Mitt Romney unveiled him as his running mate in Norfolk. Ryan will attend a rally at Glen Allen's Deep Run High School in the morning and another at Springfield's West Springfield High School in the afternoon."
Progressive Point: We fought long and hard for equal rights for women so why are Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and George Allen trying to turn back the clock? They support extreme personhood legislation that would give a fertilized egg legal rights. Ryan voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Act to ensure woman get paid the same amount as men for doing the same work. They'd even outlaw abortion even in cases of rape and incest as well a certain kinds of birth control.
Women and their families should make decisions about seeking health care and when to have children, not government politicians. Virginia women need a leadership team in Washington who will stand up for our rights, not attack them. The Romney/Ryan/Allen team's extreme positions make one thing clear: they don't value Virginia women.
