Especially if you are a woman.  I received an email today from Planned Parenthood.  It had a great list of things everyone should know about John McCain and Sarah Palin before heading out to vote!  Ignorance like this is dangerous to everyone.

1.  John McCain opposes equal pay legislation, saying it wouldn’t do “anything to help the rights of women.” 

2.  John McCain opposes requiring health care plans to cover prescription birth control.

3.  John McCain and Sarah Palin oppose comprehensive, medically accurate sex education.

7.  Sarah Palin opposes abortion, even in the case of rape and incest.

8.  John McCain voted against the Violence Against Women Act, which ensures rape survivors are not charged for the emergency exams used to prosecute their attackers.  While Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla rape survivors were forced to py for their exams, which cost up to $1,200.00.

9.  When asked whether contraceptives help stop the spread of HIV, John McCain said he was “stumped”.

10.  In his 25 years in Washington, DC, John McCain has voted against women’s reproductive rights and privacy 125 times!!!
