New Website Highlights Treadwell, Sullivan Anti-Women Policies

Begich Only Candidate Standing up for Alaska Women


U.S. Senator Mark Begich has launched, a website outlining clear differences between Begich and Senate candidates Dan Sullivan and Mead Treadwell when it comes to critical issues affecting women such as birth control, privacy, equal pay, and the ability of women to make their own medical decisions.

Using information gathered from debates, candidate statements and news reports, the site draws a clear distinction between Begich and his opponents. Treadwell and Sullivan have amassed a startling record of opposing women’s rights, equal pay and access to reproductive health services.

“Mead Treadwell and Dan Sullivan believe a woman’s boss should be able to make health care decisions for them and deny them access to birth control. These are economic issues for Alaska women that affect their personal and professional lives, which is why they need to know Mark Begich is the only candidate in this race willing to defend their privacy and stand up for their right to make their own decisions about their reproductive health,” said Susanne Fleek-Green, Campaign Manager for Alaskans for Begich.

Mark Begich has distinguished himself as 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.

GOP candidates participated in a debate this afternoon focused on their anti-choice, anti-birth control, and anti-women agendas.
