The Romney-Ryan Ticket Threatens the Future of Abortion Rights
When Vice President Joe Biden took Rep. Paul Ryan to task for his extreme position on abortion, especially for rape survivors, we stood up and cheered him on:
I guess he accepts Gov. Romney's position now, because in the past he has argued that there was - there's rape and forcible rape. He's argued that in the case of rape or incest, it was still - it would be a crime to engage in having an abortion. I just fundamentally disagree with my friend.
Biden spoke for pro-choice Americans when he insisted, "I do not believe we have a right to tell women that they can't control their bod[ies]. It's a decision between them and their doctor."
Nancy Keenan, NARAL Pro-Choice America president, blasted Rep. Ryan for not being up front with voters with his extreme views:
He refused to say whether American women should be worried about the future of their reproductive freedoms if he and Gov. Romney win the White House. Let me be clear: The Romney-Ryan ticket is extremely dangerous to women's health and Americans should be very concerned about the future of women's health and rights if Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan win on November 6.Check out the graphic we made celebrating Vice President Joe Biden standing up for a woman's right to choose, and share it with your friends:
Rep. Paul Ryan's anti-choice debate responses further drove home that we cannot let the Romney-Ryan ticket win the White House.
On November 6, we'll be voting for the candidate who represents American voters and their pro-choice values: President Barack Obama.
