My 21-year-old cousin said so to me, yesterday afternoon.
Seriously? There are prospective voters out there who believe Romney wants to BAN birth control?
1) Mitt Romney has pledged to “get rid of” and defund Planned Parenthood, which would deny access to birth control for millions of women, and Romney supports efforts in Congress to restrict or eliminate access to birth control for low-income and uninsured women. That means most women at some point in their lives. (via)
2) Romney has also pledged to eliminate the Title X program which provides “reproductive health services like birth control” to millions of women. And despite his recent dodge in New Hampshire, Romney did previously voice “absolute” support for “personhood” efforts that could enforce a ban on contraception and even flirted with anti-birth control positions to court the conservative vote in Iowa. Indeed, he promised a South Carolina audience that he would expand the Bush-era rule allowing doctors to deny women access to common forms of birth control, including the pill. (via)
What’s so difficult to understand? I certainly don’t trust Mitt Romney with my reproductive health.
