Received this e-mail today from Senator Kay Hagan (D. NC) regarding her GOP opponent's roles in the War On Women:
My opponents believe states have the authority to ban contraceptives.
They recently declared their support for restricting women’s access to contraceptives. They also support what’s called a “personhood” amendment -- an idea so far on the fringe that it could threaten infertility treatments and in-vitro fertilization procedures.

North Carolina women should have the same access to birth control that they have to any other safe, approved prescription medication. The decision to use it should be left to them, in consultation with their doctors, their families, and their faith.

Stand with me in support of women’s access to contraception. Sign our petition today.

Politicians in Washington should not be in the equation.

The agenda my opponents are advocating for is dangerous for women in North Carolina and across the country. And please know I am doing my best to fight against it.

You can, too -- just click here to sign the petition and support women’s access to contraceptives.

As the mother of two daughters, I know the importance of protecting a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions. And as a Senator, I will continue to ensure that no one -- especially not politicians -- can stand in the way of women and their doctors.

Thank you for joining me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
