This current war on women and the attempt to dismiss the war is not working. We women and all born of woman must send a message to stop this war on women. Basta.
President Obama's campaign's response: War on Caterpillar” Comments Show Republicans Continued Disregard for Women’s Health
CHICAGO, IL – Obama for America Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter released the following statement in response to Reince Priebus’ comments today dismissing uproar over Republican efforts to rollback women’s health care to a manufactured “war on caterpillars”:
“Reince Priebus’ comparison of Republican attempts to limit women’s access to mammograms, cervical cancer screenings, and contraception to a ‘war on caterpillars’ shows how little regard leading Republicans, including Mitt Romney, have for women’s health. We already know that Mitt Romney would ‘get rid of’ Planned Parenthood and supports the Blunt Amendment, which would give any employer the ability to deny their employees coverage for health care services like contraception because of their own personal beliefs. Does he stand with Reince Priebus—the leader of the Republican Party—when he compares the debate over vital health care services to a war on insects?
“Women are already abandoning the Republican Party in droves because of their antiquated positions on women’s health and out-of-touch policies on the middle class. Reince Priebus’ comments today only reinforce why women simply cannot trust Mitt Romney or other leading Republicans to stand up for them.”
