Election Day: Avoiding an Unplanned President

By November 5, 2012

Follow me on:

Can you believe that election day is finally upon us (especially since early voting has already begun)? Make sure to be a part of the action. With both the Republican and Democratic Parties vying for your vote, the electoral territory is vast, and so are the stakes.

With this ever important presidential race to the White House - it is essential that you exercise your right and VOTE! This is a crucial election for women's health! It is also vital that you make an INFORMED decision. Both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have very solid views (or lack of views) on a woman's right to choose, sex education, contraception access, free birth control, and reproductive health. Plus, potential "personhood laws" that could very well make all hormonal birth control illegal as well as illegalizing certain types of  in vitro fertilization.

So even though it is critical that you vote, make sure you choose the candidate who is in sync with your views and who will fight to keep the liberties that all women should hold so dearly. Meet the candidates and find out their stance on these important issues:
