Donovan campaigns on protection of Roe v. Wade

Below is a letter sent by the Donovan campaign on women's "reproductive freedoms." The implication here — and I cite the following: "reproductive freedoms are at greater risk now than ever before" — is, vote for Donovan if you want to maintain your right to choose. I'd like to know what you think. 
This week is the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and women’s reproductive freedoms are at greater risk now than ever before.
That’s why I’ve joined with Eric Griego from New Mexico and Ann McLane Kuster from New Hampshire, two other congressional candidates committed to protecting women's reproductive rights, to stand together in support of choice.
Help us deliver the message - click here to sign the open letter and then share it with your friends.Congressional Republicans have made clear their plan to attack women's health care and curtail women's reproductive freedoms. We need to win our election in November to ensure that we are represented by someone who will fight back against these attacks.
Here's my promise to you: I will never stop fighting to protect a woman’s freedom to choose and I will never stop fighting the radical Tea Party agenda.
Stand with me to protect a woman's right to choose - sign the letter today.Help us tell the Republican Congress that women's health care and reproductive freedoms are issues that we will fight for in 2012 - join us in standing up for women everywhere.
Thank you,
This might play very strongly with the electorate, but is it the issue Donovan should be addressing in the campaign? You tell me.

It's an issue he's addressing. It is far from the only issue. Thanks for the irrational distortion, Jordan.

Donovan must be reading the tea leaves and hearing the whispers of MANY Democratic party insiders and veterans who are quite worried that his nomination will hand the open 5th district seat to the Republicans. Donovan's record doesn't match the makeup of the district, nor is he a good campaigner, making him a weak candidate in a tough district.

Donovan will raise a lot of money, get the most endorsements, and will have labor unions get his supporters to the polls, but, it's going to take a lot more than that. The district has a lot of moderate and conservative Democrats and Independents who would gravitate to a moderate Republican with a balanced record.

If there is a Democrat who can hold the seat against a strong Republican candidate, it would be Elizabeth Esty. Maybe that's why Donovan is now touting women's issues and going after the women's vote. Wise up Democrats. We want to keep this seat, not hand it over.

The Democrat Party is made up of an alliance of left leaning special interest groups: pro-abortion feminists, homosexuals, anti-gun confiscators, socialists, certain minority groups,... Any candidate on the Democrat side must pander to each of these groups.

Republicans have the same thing. Social conservatives, gun owners, hunters, free market businesses...

Women's reproductive rights are not a Democrat/Republican issue. Like all civil and human rights, it is non-partisan. Rather than looking for ways to be divisive, let's look for the common ground on this, and other, issues.

PS Chris Donovan is not "pandering" - he is a lifelong supporter of women's reproductive rights and probably sent this email because Sunday is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

Other PS There are Republican Homosexuals as well. Don't ask me why, though.

There are already many millions of women demographically missing from the world because girl babies are not considered of “equal worth.”
