The Women's Strike Force is committed to electing candidates who support women’s reproductive rights.
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
The Women’s Strike Force kicked off its candidate interviewing process this week to identify and assist candidates who support women’s reproductive rights and oppose the policies of the Republican ticket announced at the GOP convention.
The Women’s Strike Force is a Virginia political action committee (PAC) dedicated to recruiting and supporting candidates opposing elected officials who supported the mandatory ultrasound legislation in the Virginia General Assembly. “We believe that women should make their own personal decisions without the intrusive government intervention that characterizes the McDonnell-Cuccinelli administration and the newly named reactionary team that wants to continue their policies,” said Katherine Waddell, president.
“Virginia Republicans chose a radical ticket on Saturday with the nomination of Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II for governor, E.W. Jackson for lieutenant governor and state Senator Mark Obenshain for attorney general,” Waddell said. “The reactionary trio represents Republican legislators’ continuing war on women and incessant intrusion into women's reproductive healthcare decisions.”
Waddell said there were no surprises in the Republican nominees. Their choices make it clear that Republicans plan to continue pursuing an extreme rightwing, anti-woman, anti-choice agenda, she said.
“The Women's Strike Force is committed to electing candidates who support women’s reproductive rights.”
