 Schneider is Running to Create Jobs in Illinois 10th Congressional District & End Congressman Dold’s Wrong-Headed Agenda in Congress

 (From the Office of Brad Schneider, Democratic candidate for Illinois’ 10th Congressional District)                

 

Deerfield, IL—Congressman Robert Dold showed his true colors last night by voting for extreme legislation that so severely limits women’s health and gambles with their lives and infringes upon the right to choose. Even though the consequences of this bill are so dire that it has been decried as the “Let Women Die Act,” and President Obama has threatened to veto it, Congressman Dold supports this push by the partisan Tea Party fringe to wreck havoc on women’s access to necessary, life-saving care. In response, Brad Schneider, Democratic candidate for Illinois’ 10th Congressional District, issued the following statement:

“Congressman Robert Dold’s vote for this outrageous attack on women is a tragedy,” Brad Schneider said. “Illinois families didn’t send Congressman Dold to Washington to support an extreme ideological Tea Party agenda to undermine women’s health. But Congressman Dold refused to break with the extreme elements of Republicans and Congress to stand up for women’s health even when this extreme agenda puts their lives at risk.

“Congressman Dold should focus on what Illinois needs right now: creating jobs. Since coming to Congress, Dold has done the bidding of Congressional Republican leaders and taken extreme positions from ending Medicare to ending necessary women’s emergency care. We deserve better than Congressman Dold’s Tea Party antics. We need strong leadership to stand up to the distractions in Washington and get down to business rebuilding our economy, and I am running to do just that.”

Planned Parenthood also decried the bill Congressman Dold supports as a dangerous attack on women. Cecile Richards, President of PPFA said, “This bill is a collection of dangerous ideas that will undermine women’s health. Most devastating, the bill eliminates protections for patients seeking care in emergency circumstances, and would allow a hospital to deny lifesaving abortion care to a woman, even if a doctor deems it necessary.”
