The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday released a new video that attacks Mitt Romney for proposing to "get rid of" Planned Parenthood in order to help pay for tax breaks for the rich.
The 30-second video, called "A Mitt Romney Proposal For Cutting The Budget," features footage of Romney saying, "Planned Parenthood. We're going to get rid of that." Meanwhile, words flash on the screen about how Romney supports giving tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires. Doomsday music plays the whole way through.
The video is part of a push by the DNC to paint Romney as anti-woman. In the press release accompanying the video, the DNC criticizes Romney for having supported the Blunt Amendment, which would allow employers to refuse to provide coverage for any healthcare service on moral grounds.
"The more Mitt Romney panders to the far-right by supporting the Blunt-Rubio amendment, extreme personhood amendments, or saying he will 'get rid of' Planned Parenthood, the more it becomes clear that American women cannot trust Mitt Romney to stand up for them," reads the release.
