NEW: Over 300 Women Join to Launch ‘Women for Cicilline’
Wednesday, August 15, 2012
“What the Republicans have tried to do to women these last 18 months has been completely outrageous,” said Congressman David Cicilline. “From voting to defund Planned Parenthood and undermine access to contraception to blocking legislation that would help women achieve equal pay for equal work and failing to support stronger protections under the Violence Against Women Act, they have been waging an all-out assault on women. I am proud to have the endorsement of Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America and I am proud to stand up for women every day.”
Both national women’s groups have endorsed David in part because he is the only person in either the primary or the general election they trust to defend women’s rights. “With women’s rights under attack, we need someone we can always count on to protect a woman’s right to choose…” added Nancy Keenan, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America.
The first “Women Taking Action” house party will be tonight in Middletown.
