DWS and Planned Parenthood are a match made in liberal utopia.
(CNSNews.com) – Warning that his “anti-women” stance would cost him votes in his campaign for the White House, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said Friday presidential candidate Mitt Romney needs to end the Republican “war on women.”
During a conference call briefing accusing Romney of “pandering to the extreme right-wing of his party on the issues that matter to Washington women,” Wasserman Schultz and representatives from Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America singled out the former Massachusetts governor as a politician who would “allow big corporations to deny health care options to their female employees.”
“Playtime is over when it comes to women’s health decisions and no one needs to hear this message more than Mitt Romney,” said Wasserman Schultz, who chairs the Democratic National Committee and sponsored the call to targeted Washington state voters ahead of their caucuses. Romney won on Saturday, further cementing his status as frontrunner.
Also taking part in Friday’s conference call was Dana Laurent, political director for Planned Parenthood Votes! Washington, an advocacy and political arm of the nation’s largest abortion provider.
“Women in Washington state are very familiar with the games that Mitt Romney and other anti-choice, anti-family planning Republicans are playing with women’s health,” she said.
“Americans want a president who is going to make sure that women have access to the health care they need,” Laurent said. “Mitt Romney would allow big corporations to deny health care options to their female employees. It’s just that simple.”
