What You Won’t Hear from Tonight’s RNC Speakers

WASHINGTON, DC — As the Republican National Convention prepares for its final night in Tampa, Planned Parenthood Action Fund is out with its third and conclusive rundown of “What You Won’t Hear from Tonight’s RNC Speakers.”  The effort is part of the group’s campaign to educate voters about what’s at stake for women in this election and what the Romney/Ryan ticket would mean for women’s health.

“The lineup at the Republican National Convention gives voters a clear look into the extreme and out-of-touch agenda that Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and their closest allies would bring to the White House when it comes to women and women’s health,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund.  “The fact is, the more voters learn about Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan’s record and positions on women’s health, the more appalled they are.  That’s why we haven’t heard any of the speakers — many of whom are close advisors to Romney and Ryan — highlight their anti-women’s health agenda. Americans — including the majority of mainstream Republicans — understand that politics have no place in a woman’s personal medical decisions.  Those decisions should be left to her, with the consultation of her family, her faith, and her doctor or health care provider.”

Tonight’s lineup includes Newt Gingrich, Marco Rubio, and the Republican presidential nominee himself, Mitt Romney.

The Action Fund has also released a set of baseball-style scorecards, which can be viewed here.
