On the 90th Anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote, WCLA – Choice Matters endorses Assemblyman Richard Brodsky for New York State Attorney General.
90 years ago today the 19th Amendment was ratified, and since 1980 more women have voted in presidential elections than men. No one gave us the right to vote. We took it because it was rightly ours, and many of us use that right — but not enough of us.
2010 must become known as the Year of the Woman Voter. There is an unyielding attack being waged against us and our reproductive rights. We must use the ballot box and the streets to fight back, like our foremothers did 100 years ago.
On this very important day, Choice Matters is proud to endorse Richard Brodsky for Attorney General of New York State.
Choice Matters President Catherine Lederer-Plaskett declared, â€œWe are proud to give Richard Brodsky our unqualified support. Richard has been a voice for comprehensive reproductive health and progressive causes throughout his long career in public service. His demonstrated commitment to a woman’s right to choose and his proven skills as a litigator make him our choice to be the next ‘people’s lawyer.’ Choice Matters is proud to endorse Richard in recognition of his advocacy for the rights of the women of New York State.
Richard Brodsky is 100% pro-choice and an outspoken advocate for womenâ€™s reproductive rights. Over the course of his tenure in County and State government, Richard has proven himself to be an untiring ally to women. He has never shied away from the challenges. Richard has supported important pieces of legislation, including the Reproductive Health Act, the Womenâ€™s Health and Wellness Act and the Clinic Access Bill, that advance the health and rights of all of New Yorkâ€™s women.
As our next Attorney General, Richard Brodsky will continue to be an unwavering advocate and ally of New Yorkâ€™s women.”
