THIS TUESDAY,Â 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, â€œCan I please get an abortion so that I wonâ€™t have to give birth to your child?â€(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.
DeCicco is a puppet–a mini-me–for Astorino. Even a DeCicco supporter, The Westchester Rising, calls him Astorinoâ€™s â€œpartner.â€
The Message Here:
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15TH!
Special Elections have a very low turnout because few people realize the election is occurring.
Thus your vote will have a multi-fold impact!
