Senator Favola Issues Statement on Cuccinelli's Dangerous Comparison of Women's Health to Slavery
Arlington, VA -- Senator Barbara Favola (D-31) released the following statement today condemning recently-revealed remarks in which Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli compared his efforts to end a woman's right to make her own health care decisions with the abolition of slavery:
"Ken Cuccinelli's remarks comparing women's health care access to slavery are just the latest example of how dangerously out of touch his agenda is for Virginia women and families. The last thing Virginia needs is a Governor who thinks a woman's right to make her own health care decisions is somehow similar to slavery, and who is more focused on rolling those rights back than he is on jobs, education and transportation. Ken Cuccinelli's extreme ideological agenda is dangerous, distracting and a real threat to the health and wellbeing of women and families in this Commonwealth."
