STOP PUTTING POLITICS OVER WOMEN'S HEALTHCARE.

And, make no mistake. This is all about politics. There's a reason the GOP has contiued to lose in VA. This is the one. Extensive and burdenson requirements for clinic buildins that are ONLY related to women's health are unrelated to the services these centers provide. These regulations have NO proven medical benefit. The ONLY thing it does is further an ultra conservative agenda to reduce or eliminate patient access to health care. 

I have absolutely had it with VA politics and my health. I may be past my child bearing years, but I am not past this continual assault on health care for women in this state.  Virginia, where women are second class, where the state cares not for a child, but only for the fetus - refusing children access to healthcare, education, and safety nets when born to women of no means and no fathers who care to hang about and support. VA, where the right to carry a gun is more important than the individual rights of a women to make her own health care decisions. GUNS that kill more children, no problem.

NO. No more. No More Cuccunelli, Cantor, or McDonnel. I am a woman. I vote FOR individual rights and the right to affordable health care for all. I vote AGAINST any man who decides it is his to rule my body. It isn't.  MY BODY my vote!
