My 21-year-old cousin said so to me, yesterday afternoon.
Seriously? There are prospective voters out there who believe Romney wants to BAN birth control?
Yes. Why? Because he has said so in a variety of ways.
Both Romney and Ryan support so-called “personhood” amendments that define human life as beginning when a human egg is fertilized. Many on both sides of the abortion debate have roundly criticized such amendments because they could outlaw various forms of birth control, open doctors up to criminal prosecution if an embryo does not survive in vitro fertilization, and subject women who suffer miscarriages to criminal investigations to make certain a “human life” was not murdered. In Mitt Romney’s America, women would not even be able to turn to birth control to prevent unplanned pregnancies. Not only does Romney believe that states should be able to outlaw all forms of birth control, but he and his choice for vice president would cut all government funding for Planned Parenthood, which spent more than one-third of its $11.4 million budget on contraception in 2009 and just 3 percent on abortions.
