Mitt Romney Lies About Contraceptive Coverage for Women
Washington, D.C. – Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, condemned Mitt Romney for lying about his position on women’s access to contraceptive coverage during tonight’s presidential debate.
“Mitt Romney has once again lied about his views on women’s access to birth control,” Keenan said. “Allow me to remind Mr. Romney of his support for the Blunt amendment, which would have allowed bosses to deny birth-control coverage to their employees; his promise to defund Planned Parenthood, which provides contraception to millions of Americans; and his statement that he would eliminate funding for Title X, the nation's federal family-planning program. Women will not be fooled by Mitt Romney’s latest attempt to mislead the public about his anti-choice position.”
