Alert: Special Election – The Washington Agenda wants to come to Westchester!

ALERT!
SPECIAL ELECTION
THIS TUESDAY,  FEBRUARY 15TH!

If you live in the
Westchester County
12th Legislative District
we are begging you to come out and
vote for MaryJane Shimsky.

MaryJane is a 100% pro-choice advocate who will protect our women, children, and families. She understands the importance of our clinics, childcare, and health centers.

Her opponent, DeCicco, publicly stated that all minors should be required to have parental consent before being permitted to have an abortion. Can you imagine a 12-year-old girl, an incest victim, asking the father who raped her, “Can I please get an abortion so that I won’t have to give birth to your child?”(ECC forum, 2/7/11)

At the same forum, he said that 17-year-old females should not be able to get emergency contraception (which is a high dose of birth control that can stop a woman from becoming pregnant up to five days after unprotected sex) over the counter. We should applaud young women who want to take responsibility before they have an unwanted pregnancy, not punish them! DeCicco wants to see them pay the price of unintended pregnancies, and then force them into a circumstance in which they will likely choose abortion.

Astorino, His Puppets and Washington Extremism
What is going on in Washington DC, brought on by the anti-choice zealots empowered by the Republican win last November, can happen here in Westchester County.

Westchester’s Right to Life County Executive Rob Astorino is a rabid extremist, yanking funding away from working women and their children.  This is a man whose budget shows he only cares about those who vote for him. The rest of us–especially the working poor–are being thrown under the bus so that he can claim to meet budget promises. Trust me when I say, we will all pay later in tax dollars for Astorino’s stunts.
Importantly, our County legislators decide many reproductive rights issues including prisoners’ rights, Medicaid expenditures, and more. The cost to your tax dollars will be huge if legislators do not understand these obligations, and only try to grab headlines, like Astorino likes to do, with penny-wise pound-foolish cuts.

DeCicco is a puppet–a mini-me–for Astorino. Even a DeCicco supporter, The Westchester Rising, calls him Astorino’s “partner.”

The Message Here:

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15TH!
Special Elections have a very low turnout because few people realize the election is occurring.
