Nancy Keenan Speaks Out Against Anti-Choice Romney-Ryan Ticket on Current TV
Last night, Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, appeared on Current TV's "Viewpoint" with Eliot Spitzer to speak out against the extreme anti-choice agenda of the Romney-Ryan ticket.
NARAL Pro-Choice America is working hard to draw that contrast between our pro-choice president and the anti-choice Romney-Ryan ticket.
Nancy reminded audiences of Rep. Paul Ryan's support for extreme "personhood" measures which, if passed and enacted into law, would effectively ban abortion in almost all cases, with no exception for rape or incest. Furthermore, "personhood" measures could also ban most common forms of birth control, and restrict fertility treatments.
Ryan also supports forced ultrasound legislation, like the bill that passed last year in Virginia, even when it's not medically necessary, and even if it's against a woman's will.
Discussing the Romney-Ryan agenda, Nancy stated:
"This is a radical extreme ticket. I think once the contrast is drawn between Romney-Ryan and President Obama, women are going to flock to President Obama knowing that he is standing with women and standing up for our privacy and our freedom."
We couldn't agree more! We are going to work hard to ensure that women, and their families know exactly what is at stake for them if they don't support President Obama, who fights for women and their right to choice, privacy, and freedom every day.
Women are outraged, and women will remember on November 6.
