Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards:

"Planned Parenthood is the nation's leading women's health provider and advocate and sees firsthand the women who are being hurt by the policies that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan support. We now have a full picture of this ticket, and it's deeply troubling for women's ability to make their own medical decisions and have access to basic health care. Just like Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan wants to end safe and legal abortion, would work to eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood's cancer screenings, birth control, and other basic health care, and would repeal the Affordable Care Act, denying access to birth control, well-woman checkups, and other preventive care to millions of Americans."
