Louisiana Democratic Party Has Blunt Words: Romney Has War On Women
Written by 

romney

Louisiana Democratic Party Executive Director Renee Lapeyrolerie has expressed some "blunt words" today regarding Republican Mitt Romney over what has become one of the heated issues in this campaign, the fight over womens' health versus religious and employers' rights.  In a statement released on Thursday, she blasted what she calls-- " Mitt Romney's war on women"  as " evidenced by his support for the "Blunt Amendment" - a measure that was defeated in the Senate today that would have allowed an employer to deny female employees health coverage because of that employer's beliefs."

Here is the balance of Lapeyrolerie's statement:
 "Mitt Romney keeps ending up on the wrong side of every issue important to Louisianans," said Renee Lapeyrolerie, LDP executive director.  "With his support of the Blunt Amendment, Romney would take decisions critical to women's health away from women and give them to their bosses. This extreme legislation is opposed by many health care groups, from the American Cancer Society to the American Academy of Pediatrics to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. They aren't the only ones who disagree with Mitt Romney, many women in Louisiana do too."

Lapeyrolerie continued, "Make no mistake, this is a direct attack on women's health.  This wouldn't just apply to contraceptive coverage, but any aspect of health care an employer chose, from mammograms to cervical cancer screenings to maternity care, everything is on the table. Mitt Romney has doubled down on the Republican Party's latest effort to turn back the clock on progress for millions of American women and has shown time and again that he's willing to say anything to get elected, even if that means putting himself between a woman, her family, and her doctor.  Thankfully, despite Mitt Romney's support for the dangerous amendment, the measure failed in the Senate earlier today."
