Contact: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Media Office, 212-261-4433
“The Republican presidential primary has become a race to see which candidate is the worst for women’s health. Mitt Romney — the winner of the Florida primary — has pledged to end access to birth control, both by promising to eliminate the national family planning program and by prohibiting women from going to Planned Parenthood for birth control and cancer screenings.
