Salon reports on our newly released undercover recordings from anti-choice “crisis pregnancy centers” in Virginia. These fake health facilities — supported by VA governor candidate Ken Cuccinelli — spread outrageous misinformation about abortion and birth control to women who come in seeking reproductive health information and real support.

And make sure to tweet at @KenCuccinelli and ask him if this is how he wants Virginian women to be treated?

Conservatives may be in retreat on many different fronts these days, but in one area, they’re having smashing success: restricting the ability of women—particularly non-wealthy women—from accessing abortion services.
Check out this important piece on how anti-choice politicians in states like Virginia are using even the slightest political advantage to push through policies to attack access to all safe, legal abortion such as targeted regulations on providers.

Ken Cuccinelli (candidate for Virginia governor) and Mark Obenshain  (candidate for Virginia attorney general) are both trying to run away from their history of supporting legislation that would grant “personhood” to fertilized eggs and go after legal access to abortion and common forms of contraception. This video from ProgressVA highlights their real records.

Virginia law mandates that women get ultrasounds prior to abortion.
BUT the Virginia Department of Health is referring women to anti-choice crisis pregnancy centers who routinely manipulate and deceive women that are only trying to follow the law. 
STOP the LIES. Expose VA CPCs!

Raleigh, NC— Just hours after Governor McCrory told reporters he would veto HB 695 if it wasn’t changed, extreme anti-choice lawmakers launched another surprise attack on women’s health. This time they introduced a slew of amendments to motorcycle safety bill (SB 353), essentially turning HB 695 into SB 353. This is the same bill under a different name. “After what happened over the holiday weekend, we have come to expect back door maneuvering and secret dealings from extreme anti-choice lawmakers, but we were still shocked and appalled by this morning’s events.” said Suzanne Buckley, Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina.
 
"As of 9am this morning, SB 353 was a bill about motorcycle safety, within minutes of its introduction, it was transformed into an omnibus anti-choice bill. It has now headed to the House for a vote.” she continued. “The process this legislation has taken shows an utter disregard for women’s health and safety. This is not the kind of leadership North Carolina voters deserve. The women’s health advocates and reproductive rights supporters who have showed up at the NCGA every day this week to protest HB 695 will not be silenced by empty promises or word-games, and they will not be fooled by claims that SB 353 is somehow a pro-women bill,” she said.

We will continue to push the Governor to keep the promise he made to NC Voters back in October. “If the Governor wants to keep his campaign promise to North Carolina voters, he must veto this bill. This bill is a clear attempt to place further restrictions on safe and legal abortion care in North Carolina. We, and thousands of North Carolinians, will be watching,” Buckley concluded.
