Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is the Republican front runner to be the next Virginia governor, but not if Planned Parenthood has anything to say about it. They’ve launched a new website, keepkenout.org, to document his support for stridently anti-woman policies like mandatory invasive ultrasounds.
“If the November election taught us anything, it’s that voters are sick and tired of politicians like Cuccinelli who want to insert themselves into our personal medical decisions. Cuccinelli’s ongoing attacks on women’s health and economic security should be a warning to us all: women’s health will be on the Virginia ballot in 2013,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
The current Virginia governor, Bob McDonnell, is bad enough. He’s a graduate of Pat Robertson’s Regent University and has all the repulsive beliefs you would predict. But Cuccinelli would be even worse.
