Beating the horse

Eek, the election is in less than a week!  Are you ready?  Here’s a little more info on some NARAL-supported Montana candidates who haven’t gotten much press on our blog yet.  Have you even thought about the state auditor?

Steve Bullock, Attorney General

Steve Bullock has been endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice Montana PAC
because of his strong support for Montana’s constitutionally protected
right to privacy. Bullock’s opponent does not support access to
abortion care, even in cases of rape or incest. (Montana Family
Action survey).

Denise Juneau, Superintendent of Public Instruction

Denise is a strong supporter of medically accurate, age appropriate
sex education, and, if elected, will work to ensure that our young
people have the information they need to protect themselves from
unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

Monica Lindeen, State Auditor

Monica Lindeen has a lifetime 100% voting record with NARAL Pro-Choice
Montana in the state legislature. Her opponent recently released a
plan for the Auditor’s office that includes stripping consumer
protections in insurance plans by eliminating mandates that only
“some” consumers want. (Billings Gazette, 9/24/08, Grimes proposes
insurance plan) In Montana, insurance plans must cover birth control,
mammograms, and maternity care. Insurance companies often consider
women’s health care needs as “extra,” so these protections are
important. Monica knows how important it is for women to have access
to affordable reproductive health care, including birth control.

Linda McCulloch, Secretary of State

Linda McCulloch earned a 100% voting record from NARAL Pro-Choice
Montana when she served in the Montana legislature and was also
endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice Montana PAC in her successful races for
Superintendent of Public Instruction. She is a long-time member and
supporter of reproductive rights.

Mike McGrath, Chief Justice, Montana Supreme Court

Mike McGrath is a strong supporter of Montana’s constitutional right
to privacy. As Attorney General, Mike issued a formal opinion
requiring health insurance companies to include birth control in their
prescription drug coverage. Mike was first elected Montana’s Attorney
General in 2000 and ran unopposed for his second term in 2004.
