New Begich Ad: “Alaska Women Need to Know”

“Dan Sullivan and Mead Treadwell have positions on women’s health that are truly frightening.”


ANCHORAGE — Alaska women are speaking out against Dan Sullivan and Mead Treadwell’s “truly frightening” positions on women’s health in a new Mark Begich ad.

“Treadwell and Sullivan’s frightening beliefs would allow a woman’s boss to deny her coverage for birth control, restrict choice and ban funding for Planned Parenthood,” says Susanne Fleek-Green, Campaign Manager for Alaskans for Begich

Treadwell and Sullivan have compiled a startling resume of anti-women stances that include redefining what constitutes a medically necessary abortion that would result in a woman’s medical records being exposed to the government, support for extreme personhood measures, and allowing a woman’s boss to deny her access to birth control on religious grounds.

Mark Begich is the only candidate who understands the economic and professional impact these decisions can have on Alaska women which is why he is the only candidate who will stand up for a woman’s right to choose, believes that women should have access to affordable birth control and knows that a woman’s health decisions are best made between her and her doctor.

The ad comes a day after all three primary candidates spent an entire debate sparring over who would be most effective at denying women access to birth control or cutting funding for women’s reproductive health services.
