On May 18th, Ken Cuccinelli will accept his party's nomination as the Republican candidate for Governor in Virginia. When it comes to women's health, Ken Cuccinelli is far out of the mainstream.
He was one of only three attorneys general in the ENTIRE nation to refuse to support the Violence Against Women Act. He sponsored legislation to end state funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides cancer screenings and affordable birth control for thousands of Virginia women. He wants to make abortion illegal, even in cases of rape and incest, and where there are serious health risks for the woman. He supports letting a woman's boss decide whether she can get access to affordable birth control.
Together, we will demonstrate that women's health supporters will decide this election and determine Virginia's future.
Can we count on you to join us at Planned Parenthood Virginia PAC's rally on Saturday, May 18th at 8:30am?

Article on the keepkenout.org website:
This weekend is the Republican State Convention in Richmond, where the Virginia GOP will nominate their candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general. Instead of holding a primary, the state partyafter being pushed further and further to the rightdecided to change their nominating process to a convention to ensure that the most conservative and extreme candidates become the nominees for higher office because the delegates at the convention are much more conservative than the average primary voter. Even Republican Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling recognizes this and protests the change saying, Conventions empower the most strident voices within a political party, and they effectively disenfranchise more mainstream voters. So as the Dont Tread on Me bumper stickers descend upon Richmond this weekend, the Tea Party faithful will coronate their hero and the man who manipulated the system to drive out the moderatesKen Cuccinelli.
Cuccinelli has long been a Tea Party favorite. He considers himself a Tea Party groupie and boasts about being the first attorney general in the country to file suit against the Affordable Care Act, just 34 minutes after it was signed into law. His extreme views on social issues from personhood to sodomy have long been at the center of his politics, and when it comes to womens health, Cuccinelli is well outside the mainstream. He has made defunding Planned Parenthood a top priority, bullied the Virginia Board of Health to pass the unnecessary TRAP restrictions on womens health centers as a part of his ultimate goal to end all access to safe and legal abortions, and called the expansion of access to birth control under the Affordable Care Act a sterilization mandate.
If state Republicans wanted to change the process to ensure an extreme, Tea Party candidate who is out of touch with most Virginians got nominated, then that is clearly what they got in Ken Cuccinelli.
Join us this Saturday, May 18, to welcome Ken Cuccinelli as the official Republican nominee and tell him that his dangerous record and agenda for womens health is wrong for Virginia. We will be meeting outside the Richmond Coliseum at 500 N 5th Street from 8:30-10 a.m. Look for our pink shirts and maybe even a special guest appearance by Pillamina.

Well, the NOW cows are uglier, but the PP types are easily baited.
Don’t suppose the IRS is looking at THEIR 501(c)(3) though, are they?
Counter-picket with pictures of Gosnell and his horrors.
I’ll be at the convention on Saturday. Nice to know there will be a sideshow.
If I see any good pic opportunities, I’ll b sure to grab and post!
These quotes would make good signs:
On the extermination of blacks:
“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” she said, “if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
On blacks, immigrants and indigents:
“...human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning... human beings who never should have been born.”
“The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood, Women and the New Race
(Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)
These folks have murdered millions of children.
Oh I hope they wear their vagina costumes!
Here is what the Richmond meeting I mentioned is all about!
Water hoses... tear gas and police dogs baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A counter protest, using posters of evidence from the Gosnell trial ought to be effective.
That’s exactly what they should do....for all the world to see the horror.
That must mean the VA Republicans are doing something right!
What are the baby killers whining about now?
Maybe we can retaliate, run around and snip their spinal cords.
Hopefully someone will start selling a Gosnell mask for wearing to counterprotests.
