“Ken Cuccinelli’s comments on Fox this morning would be funny, if they weren’t so insulting to Virginia women”
Richmond, VA – Planned Parenthood Virginia PAC released the following statement condemning Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli for his misleading statements this morning on Fox and Friends. As polls continue to show, Cuccinelli’s extreme record and agenda on women’s health are costing him significantly with women.
“Ken Cuccinelli’s comments on Fox this morning would be funny, if they weren’t so insulting to Virginia women. This is coming from the same politician who advocated for extreme and dangerous so-called ‘personhood’ legislation, which if enacted, could have interfered in personal, private medical decisions relating to birth control, access to fertility treatment, management of miscarriage, and access to safe and legal abortion, and Virginia’s targeted restrictions on abortion providers, which have dangerous implications on a woman’s ability to access health care. He has built his career on advancing policies that interfere with women’s personal medical decisions about birth control and safe and legal abortion. Cuccinelli’s statements are the height of hypocrisy, but Virginia women will not be fooled – the more they learn about Ken Cuccinelli, the less likely they are to vote for him,” said Cianti Stewart-Reid, executive director of Planned Parenthood Virginia PAC.
Planned Parenthood Virginia PAC, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and Planned Parenthood Votes launched the Keep Ken Out campaign back in February, and in the weeks leading up to Election Day, we are reaching out to thousands of women voters to make sure they know this about Cuccinelli’s agenda for them and their families:
1. His ultimate goal is to end access to safe and legal abortion.
2. He wants to cut access to Planned Parenthood’s preventive health services.
3. He wants to make birth control less affordable and less accessible.
Last week, Planned Parenthood Votes announced a million-dollar ad buy on Virginia TV and radio. You can read the press release and watch the TV ad here. You can learn more about the Keep Ken Out campaign here: http://keepkenout.org/
