BEDFORD, N.Y. – The Daily Voice accepts signed, original letters to the editor. Letters may be emailed to bedford@dailyvoice.com .

Oct. 14, 2012

To the Editor:

Sean Patrick Maloney, the Democratic challenger for Congress, is the best choice for women voters this election year. He will represent the interests of women in the Hudson Valley.

Even though Nan is a doctor and a woman, her voting record doesn’t indicate she take’s women’s health seriously. Sean is a strong supporter of a woman's right to choose and unlike Congresswoman Hayworth, Sean supports funding for access to contraception. Locally, 12 health centers provide care to over 35,000 patients each year. Eliminating funding to Planned Parenthood means over 31,000 patients will lose access to care such as cervical cancer screenings, affordable birth control and HIV testing.

In addition, Sean supports the Affordable Care Act, which prohibits insurance companies from charging women higher premiums. Congresswoman Nan Hayworth, who has taken thousands of dollars from insurers, supports repealing the Affordable Care Act.

Sean Patrick Maloney supports equality in the workplace and supports the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would bar companies from retaliating against workers who inquire about pay disparities and allow employees to sue for punitive damages in cases of paycheck discrimination.

Fortunately, the women of the Hudson Valley do have a real champion on the ballot this November: Sean Patrick Maloney. Sean is a strong supporter of a woman's right to choose. On November 6, vote for Sean Maloney.

Sincerely,

Bea Rhodes
