Women's Access to Reproductive Healthcare
 

I am a 50 year old mother of three.  Never have I been so concerned about women's healthcare rights until the continued attacks of the last two years perpretrated by Ken Cuccinelli.

It is time to stop letting a right-wing radical MAN dictate healthcare decisions for the women of Virginia.  Ken Cuccinelli has never had to wonder if he was pregnant, worry about paying for birth control, carry a child or make the wrenching decision to terminate a pregnancy.  Yet our state continues to let this crazy man dictate the care of women.

Medically inappropriate and unnecessarily burdensome regulations restrict access to essential health care services for the women of Virginia and further marginalize young, low-income, uninsured and minority women by decreasing their health care options.  This is all that should need to be said.
