Jerry for women

Original post made by SJC TRANSPLANT, Dublin, on Oct 23, 2012

I am dismayed that I cannot vote for Jerry McNerney this year, and I'll tell you why. I am a new transplant - I used to live in Lodi.

I cannot say loudly or firmly enough that we need someone who not only represents every person he meets and knows about, but will truly stand up for women's rights.

Jerry McNerney's opponent? A young graduate who is pro-life.

Meanwhile, Jerry McNerney has supported the Lily Ledbetter Act, VAWA, and most importantly, is vocal on securing reproductive rights for women, access to reproductive services, a proponent for a woman's right to be in command of her own body, and overall equality for women.

We will be set back 50 years if we elect young Gill, or we can encourage everyone we know to back Jerry McNerney, a true advocate for women;s issues.

Hilarious. Sounds like you're planning for some event filled outings featuring lots of unprotected sex. Pregnancy may be the least of your concerns. Good luck to you......

mittens, if you cannot add something constructive then you should not comment. Your sarcasm and cynicism is not appreciate and represents inability by the writer to articulate intelligent thought.

BTW, I agree that Gill will not be as open minded to women's issues base on conversations with family living in Lodi (they are Republicans, I might add).

Mikie, read the first amendment and then come to grips that this whole made up 'war on women' is manufactured.
When you are eligible to have an abortion, then you can add something constructive. Until then, lets not pretend anyone will be taking away a women's right to kill her unborn children any time soon. Find something else to PMS about........

Gill is very sharp guy. We need him. We've had enough of McWeenie, Pelosi's lap dog, who fetches, when she calls. We're in serious trouble, in case nobody has noticed!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
