How Will Rep. Paul Ryan Answer for his Anti-Choice Record?
Will he try to backtrack on his extreme anti-choice positions, like his running mate Mitt Romney did this week?
We're not buying it from Romney and we won't let Ryan get away with it, either.
Pro-choice voters need to know about Rep. Ryan's extreme anti-choice record, and how bad he is for women's health and privacy.
- Rep. Ryan campaigned in support of State Rep. Roger Rivard (R-Rice Lake), who made the outrageous comment that, "some girls rape easy." Update: Rep. Ryan withdrew his endorsement from State Rep. Rivard on October 11, just hours before his debate against Vice President Biden.
- He cosponsored "personhood" legislation that, if enacted, would outlaw abortion in almost all cases, even in cases of rape or incest.
- Rep. Ryan supported legislation that would force a woman to undergo an ultrasound before receiving abortion care, even if the doctor doesn't recommend it, and even if it's against the woman's will.
- He voted to refuse emergency abortion care to women who could otherwise die without it.
We can't emphasize it enough: the Romney-Ryan ticket is bad for women and their families.
On November 6, vote for the candidate who will continue to protect women's freedom and privacy: pro-choice President Barack Obama.
