How to Talk to Your Friends about Mitt Romney
The only way we're going to continue to protect women's freedom and privacy and improve health-care services for women and families is by re-electing President Obama. You know that, we know that, but, unfortunately, there are still some critical voters who do not plan to vote for him on November 6.
We believe this election can be won by getting these undecided voters to stand with the president. That's why we plan to contact 380,020 voters who we consider to be "Obama defectors" - pro-choice women who supported Obama in 2008 but aren't committed to voting for him yet - in 25 counties in nine battleground states. These women can make the difference in what is likely to be a very close election.
But we need your help to reach every one of these pro-choice voters. Think creatively - are any of your friends, neighbors, colleagues, or classmates pro-choice and not yet planning to vote for Obama?
Here are the top five things you should tell your friends about the Romney-Ryan ticket:
- Romney says he supports overturning Roe v. Wade.
- Romney said, "Planned Parenthood, we're going to get rid of that." Romney's plan would cut off access to birth control and breast cancer screenings for millions of women.
- Romney and Ryan have supported policies that would outlaw abortion in almost all cases, even in cases of rape, incest or when a woman's health is in danger.
- Ryan supported redefining rape so that it would be harder for many rape survivors to get the medical care they need.
- Ryan voted to allow hospitals to refuse emergency abortion care to women who could otherwise die without it.
The Romney-Ryan ticket's extreme anti-choice agenda couldn't be clearer. And we're not going to let them shy away from their outrageous positions.
Talk to your friends, and they'll see that they cannot trust Mitt Romney with women's health and privacy.
