With independent and moderate women voters fleeing the Republican party thanks to the GOP’s relentless assault on women’s rights, President Obama offered yet another reason for women to support his candidacy come November.
In a video released to support Planned Parenthood, President Obama ripped the Republicans for playing politics with women’s health care.
“For you and for most Americans, protecting women’s health is a mission that stands above politics, and yet over the past year you’ve had to stand up to politicians who wanted to deny millions of women the care they rely on and inject themselves into decisions that are best made between a women and her doctor.” said Obama in the video posted to Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s YouTube channel.
“Let’s be clear here — women are not an interest group.”
The President also took the time to remind women that the soon-to-be Republican nominee Mitt Romney has vowed to “get rid of” Planned Parenthood.
Elections have consequences, and nowhere is that clearer than with the war on women.
