regulations that affect women's choices
 

I am against regulations which affect a women's right to control her reproductive life. I would guess that the women in the Governor's family and that of Mr. Cucinelli have access to birth control. A poor woman with few resources should be able to make choices that are best for her and her family. The most ridiculous thing I saw recently was that a Virginia legislator wanted to stop a pregnant indigent  woman from terminating her pregnancy.  Sadly, that same legislator most likely votes against legislation that would provide social programs to help that mother and child. No woman makes that kind of decision lightly, and I respect every woman's right to make that decision . It is her decision, not the government's decision.  Lorie Lowrey
