Since day one, President Obama has fought for women’s health care rights and the economic security that goes with access to affordable insurance. I wish that were true for Mitt Romney.
Mr. Romney offers only dangerous promises to roll back these rights. I’m going to take him at his word—and every woman in America should, too. On Obamacare, he says he’ll “kill it dead” on day one, eliminating mandatory coverage for lifesaving preventive care and once again letting insurance companies play by their own rules.
Mr. Romney has said over and over that he would “get rid” of federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which is a provider for more than 3 million people across the country who need cancer screenings and other basic health care. He also applauded a proposed law that would allow any employer, religious or not, to deny employees coverage for any medical service, not just contraception.
