Planned Parenthood Action Fund: Romney Ad Designed to Deceive Women

Contact: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Media Office, 212-261-4433

For Immediate Release: 10.16.12

WASHINGTON -- The following is a statement from Planned Parenthood Action Fund Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens on the new ad released by the Romney campaign distorting his agenda for women’s health:

“This is an ad designed to deceive women.  The Romney team knows that Mitt Romney’s real agenda for women’s health is deeply unpopular – ending safe and legal abortion, ending Planned Parenthood’s preventive care that millions of people rely on, and repealing the Affordable Care Act and the coverage of birth control with no co-pay.  Romney can run from his own agenda, but he can’t hide – women will hold him accountable at the polls on election day.”
