Hernandez will back women's rights

November 1, 2012 

Over the last year, women's issues have been the focus of some of the most aggressive legislative attacks in decades. Your vote can help to assure that the progress of women will not be deterred.

Please do not allow women's rights and our quality of life to be undermined by legislators who do not serve our own best interests. In this day and age women should not be fighting over equal pay, their reproductive rights or choices, whatever they may be.

Jose Hernandez is the only choice for any self-respecting woman voter in the 10th Congressional District. He has been a lifelong, ardent supporter of women and women's issues. His work led him to the development of the first full-field digital mammography imaging system, a tool in the early detection of breast cancer, which saves lives. He will be a strong voice and advocate for women in our district and Washington, D.C.
