The GOP War on Women's Health is Real

1y ago
SOURCE  

Description

The Republican Party continues to pass harsh laws restricting access to women's healthcare across the country, but the mainstream press has stopped paying attention. That's why we've produced a short documentary that cogently explains the state and national efforts by Republicans--including Mitt Romney--to limit access to birth control and other basic women's health services. Featured interviews include Rep. Lois Capps (CA-23), who as a former nurse has long been a leader on women's health issues; Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List; and Dr. Kimberly Shepherd, an OB/GYN who provides medical authority on issues that never should've been politicized in the first place. With the lives of millions of women potentially impacted by the dangerous proposals of Mitt Romney and Republican lawmakers, it's vital that this issue isn't forgotten this election season. Help us spread the word.
