A Great Week at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference

African-American women understand Planned Parenthood. They understand Planned Parenthood’s commitment to providing quality health care and eliminating health disparities; they understand Planned Parenthood’s commitment to bodily integrity and self-determination; and they understand Planned Parenthood’s vision for a world of social justice where people are able to fulfill their highest dreams.

After Losing the Election with the Greatest Gender Gap, Romney Campaigns with Cuccinelli

If last November’s election taught us anything, it’s that women’s health is a good investment. Mitt Romney lost the presidential election (and Virginia) with the greatest gender gap in Gallup’s history. And now guess where he is: headlining a fundraiser, days after a new poll shows Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe leading Virginia’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli by a 24-point margin among women.

Senator Ted Cruz’s Misinformation Tour Starts in 11 Days…Don’t Let Him Have the Last Word
