Press Release

Today, Tim Kaine released a new radio ad that contrasts Kaine's support for measures that increase economic opportunity for women and protect their rights to make their own health care choices, with George Allen's attempts to compromise women's ability to make the health care decisions that are best for them and their families.

The sixty-second ad titled "Clock" notes Allen's focus on divisive social legislation, including his commitment to bring so-called 'personhood' legislation to the federal level, that not only threatens to roll back the clock on women's health care, but also distracts from efforts to address our fiscal challenges. "Some politicians would turn back the clock for women. Instead of creating jobs, they tried to tell women what they can and can't do with their own bodies."

"Throughout my career, I have always worked to expand economic opportunity for women in the Commonwealth. Whether it's support for equal pay legislation like the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act or ensuring that women are able to make their own health care decisions, I believe when women succeed it strengthens all our families and communities," said Kaine. "While some in Washington have decided to focus on narrow social agendas that drive us further apart and would roll back decades of progress, I will never come between a woman and her doctor to make the choices that are right for them. Our country faces tough challenges to grow the economy and create jobs. It's time for politicians to put aside divisive ideology that is bad for Virginia women and families."

"Clock" is the third radio ad released by Tim Kaine following "Family Issues" that features his wife, Anne Holton, and the Spanish-language ad "Valores."
