Roe v. Wade is the law of the land; it is case precedent that has stood the test of time. I am calling upon all American women ensure that our voices are heard in the June 8th, 2010 Montana primary. No one understands more clearly than I; that women need a voice that will preserve their private right to choose. In addition, that we elect a candidate that will work toward achieving economic parity for women. I am that candidate.
Sarah Palin’s view is a dangerous view; her dangerous right wing rhetoric is always couched in violent terminology. She advocates for the pro-life right, saluting women in uniform and ignoring the current situation our brave women warriors face: a coat-hanger, secrecy, fear, intimidation and reprisals are their reproductive health care in the U.S. military.
We want our women soldiers who risk their lives for us, only to be forced into resorting to back alley abortions–to have better, life affirming recourse than what Sarah Palin and Denny Rehberg espouse. Abortion is never an easy choice, it certainly is not the easiest path; but it is a choice secured for women as a constitutional right to privacy. I need your help to ensure we preserve this right to privacy and work on a progressive women’s platform. Your contribution will enable me to continue to be a committed voice for Montana women, thank you.
