In Print, On Radio or on TV, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Takes On Cuccinelli

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Kudos to our colleagues at NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia for taking on anti-choice Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's latest attack on a woman's right to choose. 

Perhaps you read about it on the front page of today's Washington Post or saw Tarina Keene, executive director of the affiliate, on one of the morning shows. Listeners of public radio also heard Tarina. 

If Cuccinelli and his anti-choice allies prevail, 17 of Virginia's 21 abortion clinics could close. That's especially terrible because already 86 percent of Virginia counties don't have an abortion provider

 What Cuccinelli is trying to do is not an isolated incident. Even though abortion is one of the safest and most regulated medical procedures, the anti-choice movement has undertaken a campaign to impose unnecessary and burdensome regulations on abortion providers -- but not other medical professionals -- in an obvious attempt to drive doctors out of practice and make abortion care more expensive and difficult to obtain. 

 We call these laws "Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers" or TRAP laws for short. Is your state one of the targets? Take a look at our fact sheets and state-by-state information

Stay tuned for more on this topic. We hear Cuccinelli loves to be in the news.
