“Ted Budd is telling voters exactly what he will do if he wins that US Senate seat and the Republicans win a majority in Washington. He tells women he wants to control their bodies, their lives and their futures. Here’s what I want to say to Ted Budd: A doctor’s office is far too small for a woman, her doctor and the US government. » said Representative Rachel Hunt.
“Women have the right to make their own decisions about health without out-of-the-box politicians like Ted Budd getting in their way. Our reproductive freedom is on the ballot in November. We fight to ensure that everyone has the power to control their own body, life and future. We deserve elected officials who believe that too,” said Jane Whitley, chairwoman of the Mecklenburg County Democratic Party.

As a woman, mother, and voter of North Carolina, I pledge to do everything I can to stop Congressman Ted Budd and keep politicians out of these deeply personal decisions. said Scarlett Hollingsworth, Charlotte’s mom.
