Editor's Note: Peter Heck returns to the studio and to the Liberty Tree on June 18.
One of the thing that frustrates me beyond words is when the abortion broads on the left constantly talk about wanting to keep the government out of the private medical decisions of a woman and her doctor. Why? Because time and again, they prove with their allegiance to left wing policies that if there’s one thing they don’t mind, it’s the government intervening in private medical decisions.
Take Planned Parenthood’s chief, Cecile Richards, and her recent op-ed on the subject of why Mitt Romney is going to kill every woman in sight:
His promise to strike down the Affordable Care Act and its requirement that health plans cover birth control without co-pays, along with his pledge to end the nation's family planning program -- which provides preventive care to nearly 5 million women -- and his vow to "get rid" of Planned Parenthood would have real and serious consequences for millions of women nationwide.
Unlike Mitt Romney, we won't let politics interfere with the health care that one in five women in America have relied on at some point in their lives.
So, we don’t want government telling a woman what she can or can’t do with her body, but we can’t accept a guy like Romney who wants to keep the government from telling a woman (or man) what she (or he) can or can’t do with her (or his) body? Yeah, Cecile, makes total sense…as always.
Kate Pavlich at Townhall commented on this very truth:
Predictibly, Richards is using the "women's health" argument in defense of ObamaCare, saying Mitt Romney is "no friend to women's health." Ironic considering Mitt Romney is married to a woman who had five children, beat breast cancer and lives with MS.
Let me say without equivocation: Cecile Richards and her child-killing gang do not come close to speaking for all (or even a majority of) American women.
