Virginians aren't forgetting Cuccinelli and Obenshain's crusade to ban abortion
July 30, 2013
ProgressVA today released a new video highlighting something Ken Cuccinelli and Mark Obenshain would prefer Virginians forget: their records when it comes to personhood legislation. In separate appearances at the end of July, Cuccinelli and Obenshain backed away from their previous support for legislation that would outlaw abortion and some forms of birth control in Virginia. In a clear case of "believe what I say, not the long record of things I did", Cuccinelli and Obenshain have tried to gloss over their support for personhood in 2007, and 2011, and 2012.
Progressive Point: Politicians have no business interfering in private decisions that should be between a woman, her family, her doctor, and her faith. But Ken Cuccinelli and Mark Obenshain have determined their place is in your doctor's office. Their right wing agenda would limit women's access to reproductive care, from birth control to abortion.
Cuccinelli and Obenshain may want us to forget about their support for an extreme measure to ban abortion and some forms of birth control, but Virginia women aren't that easily confused. From radical restrictions designed to shut down women's health centers to extreme personhood legislation, they've championed measures designed to ban abortion. Our elected officials should be focusing on expanding affordable health care access, not hoping you forgot about their efforts to deny women their constitutionally-protected rights.
