Republican lawmakers are introducing legislation that would outlaw abortion and allow prosecution of doctors in Iowa.
Ken Cuccinelli aspires to be the next governor of Virginia after spending four years trying to deny women’s health care rights, blocking Obamacare and forcing his ideology and personal beliefs on the Commonwealth of Virginia.
