dearest sarah,

Dear Sarah Palin,

You are not our candidate.

You are not our candidate because you required women in Wasilla
to pay for their own medical examinations after being raped.

You are not our candidate because you do not support a woman’s
right to choose, even in the case of rape or incest.

You are not our candidate because you’ve cut funding for teen
moms, and for comprehensive sex education.

You are not our candidate because, as vice president — a
heartbeat away from the presidency — you would jeopardize
health care for women everywhere.

We are teachers, doctors, athletes, programmers, artists,
lawyers, secretaries, CEOs, students, designers, nurses, factory
workers, mothers, and fathers. We are conservatives and
liberals, Democrats and Republicans, country and city people. We
are women and men. We are voters. We are the Planned Parenthood
Action Fund.

We believe in a woman’s right to choose and the right of every
person to have access to complete reproductive health care. We
are hundreds of thousands strong, and we are doing everything we
can to make sure you are not elected.

You are not our candidate.

Love,

Meghomala Chakrabarti

PS: You can send this letter, here, and Planned Parenthood will display signs with the open letter, representing to John McCain, to Sarah Palin, and to every voter before Election Day the sheer diversity and the enormous number of people who cannot and will not support McCain and Palin and why. The signs will be shown in St. Louis, Missouri, for the vice-presidential debate!
