Citizens United Decision Unleashes Funds Supporting Anti-Choice Candidates

RH Reality Check: Citizens United: An Unprecedented Threat to Reproductive and Sexual Justice, by Jodi Jacobson:

Congress What's the connection between the personhood of a fertilized egg and the personhood of corporations?

Both can and will undermine the fundamental rights of women.

On January 21st of this year, perhaps in some cosmically ironic sense a day before the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court handed down a decision on the Citizens United [2] case. . . .

A great deal of this money is being used to support the campaigns of ultra-right, anti-choice candidates who also share an agenda of dismantling health care reform, social security, minimum wage and labor protections, and a range of other laws and social programs aimed at improving the common--not just the corporate--good.

The candidates in the target list above, for example, are all pro-choice and all support minimum wage protections, environmental protection, social security and other programs.  Their opponents all share an anti-choice, anti-government, pro-corporation agenda disguised as "personal freedom." . . .
