Letter: Nicole Lee, Leesburg

Editor: Across the country, and in Virginia, women’s rights are under attack. With state legislatures following in Texas’s footsteps and passing laws that further restrict a women’s right to choose, we need to stand up to make sure that women’s reproductive rights are protected in Virginia or we could risk losing them. We have come so far in Virginia for women’s rights, we cannot back slide now.

I’m supporting Wendy Gooditis for Delegate in this election because she has been a strong advocate for women and families. She supports a woman’s right to make informed decisions about her own health care, fought to expand access to midwife services, and with the majority helped finally pass the equal rights amendment in Virginia. She is the advocate we need to protect a woman’s right to choose in the state. That is why she has been endorsed by the National Organization for Women and Planned Parenthood.

Her opponent, Nick Clemente has attacked reproductive rights. He has been endorsed by extreme politicians who would like to see Roe v. Wade overturned nationwide. Clemente has said that he supports defunding Planned Parenthood, denying essential medical services to women statewide. Nick Clemente has no understanding of the complexity and nuances of women’s issues.

We can’t let Virginia become the next Texas. That’s why this year I’m supporting Wendy Gooditis.

    Wendy Gooditis voted for mandating the trans-gender public school bathrooms that just resulted in multiple LCPS girls getting sexually assaulted. Democrats are the problem and Gooditis is a Democrat. Don’t vote for her or any other predator-enabling Democrat.

    I’m for Wendy Gooditis. I believe strongly in women’s rights. I’m proud Virginia finally approved the ERA last year. It was 40 years too late & a symbolic gesture. But better late than never. The great feminist Eleanor Smeal, who fought for the ERA for 50 years, lives in nearby Arlington. (Yet another reason to be proud of Virginia.) I hope Loudouners take the time to learn about both candidates. I’m confident they’ll conclude that Wendy Gooditis is the one to support. Please vote Loudoun!

    Is the letter writer the same Nicole Lee who is the Leesburg District Chair of the Loudoun (D) Committee?
    Or somebody else?

    If the letter writer is a (D) operative, why conceal that fact? We see this over and over and over again with (D)s in this county.

      Further on this topic:

      LoudounNow, please consider requiring disclosures for published LTEs.
      Personal, professional and political affiliations as well as financial interests..

      Thank you.

      I was trying to check whether Ms. Lee was in fact a political partisan. Posting letters from Democrats supporting Democrat issues and candidates without full disclosure seems to be a Loudoun Now standard practice.

    Gooditis eagerly supports barbaric late term abortion, up to the very moment a baby enters the birth canal. Minutes from life, but that’s good enough for ole’ Wendy to have the infant dismembered.

    Yet she denies women a choice when it comes to government shots injected into their bodies.

    Gooditis is an extremist, who votes when and how she’s told by the party bosses in Richmond.

      Chris, curious if you have adopted a child from an unwanted pregnancy? Or if you have done anything to assist women who have opted to have their child under difficult circumstances?

      • 2021-10-19 at 2:54 pm

        Irrelevant Jim. Wendy Gooditis is all about dismembering a baby just minutes from birth. She was a patron on HB 2491 in 2019. That bill dropped the requirement that three doctors certify the mother’s life was in danger, down to one doctor certifying it might be okay.

        I’m sure you’ll recall, this was the bill that tripped up the current governor into supporting infanticide on the radio. From that, we got the “was he in Blackface, or in the Klan robe” scandal.

        You still playing dress up as a “lifelong republican, or are you finally playing your cards straight?

      So, Bob, if you are given the choice to get the vaccine because it is “Your body, your choice”, will you ten give women the choice on abortion? I’ll wait for the reply.

      By the way, last time I checked vaccines are not currently mandated by law.

    I am always amazed at the “protecting Women’s right to choose”. Fine. But answer this question:

    Why are there any unwanted pregnancies to begin with? I understand Rape and incest, but birth control of all kins is plentiful in America. There is clearly $omething more sinister with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocates. When Roe vs. Wade was decided, the mantra at the time was that abortions should be very rare etc… clearly, unfettered access to kill the unborn has always been the goal..

    To the writer, Does Wendy Gooditis believe that we should have the choice over whether we have a vaccine injected into our body if we already had Covid and have antibodies from that experience? Does the writer believe that a healthy, problem free pregnancy with the biological father also being the husband can be terminated at any time for any reason at the choice of the mother without even notice to the husband at full term? If yes then your level of absurdity is beyond the value of any of our time to consider it. If no then what is the line you would not cross with reasons please?
