WOMEN’S STRIKE FORCE ISSUES ALERT TO ALL VIRGINIA VOTERS

(Richmond, VA) The Women’s Strike Force, a bi-partisan Virginia political action committee (PAC) formed to preserve the progress women have made in the protection of their reproductive and health care rights, wants to alert supporters and all Virginia voters of an apparent attempt by right-wing conservative, Rick Santorum to confuse voters by initiating the call for a “Strikeforce” to help elect Ken Cuccinelli as the next Virginia Governor.

It is ironic that Santorum and members of the Tea Party’s Patriot Voices PAC would choose to enlist the use of the term “strikeforce” to rally Ken Cuccinelli supporters when it bears such a strong resemblance to the Women’s Strike Force, a Virginia organization whose mission is to challenge the outspoken extremists who voted to deny women the right to their own reproductive health care decisions.

WSF President, Katherine Waddell says, “Clearly the Women’s Strike Force is having an impact on the House campaigns to turn out incumbents who voted to restrict women’s reproductive health care choices. To date, the Women’s Strike Force has donated more than $60,000 for the 2013 House campaigns.”

“From now through this election and beyond, we will continue to raise funds, recruit volunteers and promote our mission to help elect legislators who will support women’s reproductive rights, and we invite others to join with us for this important cause,” says WSF Board Member, Margaret Vanderhye.
