Listen, I actually think Mitt Romney personally doesn’t give a shit about issues of reproductive health, but whatever he thinks is irrelevant - it’s his policies that are important.
-Romney wants to overturn Roe v. Wade by appointing anti-choice justices
-Romney says he will reinstate the Global Gag Rule, a policy responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of women across the world.
-Romney has promised to defund Planned Parenthood, a leading provider of health care for low-income women.
-Romney/Ryan say they would do away with the contraception mandate on “day one.”
-The GOP platform includes support for a constitutional amendment that would give fertilized eggs “personhood” rights - making abortion illegal in all cases, as well as outlawing certain kinds of birth control and in-vitro fertilization. Paul Ryan supported similar legislation.
-Paul Ryan supported the Let Women Die Act, which would have let hospitals refuse women life-saving abortions. Romney told a mother of four who needed an abortion to save her life: “Why do you get off easy when other women have their babies?”
If you vote for Mitt Romney, you are voting to end women’s reproductive rights. Period.
Romney has binders full of women….’s rights he wants to take away.
