This week, the Republicans will present their vision for the future at their convention — and on national television for millions of people to see.
They will make a lot of promises, but one thing they probably won’t talk much about is their platform to strip away a woman’s right to choose, even in cases of rape or incest.
We need everyone to know just how out-of-touch the Republican platform is for women and families across Massachusetts and around the country. Share our brand-new TV ad with your family and friends:
Earlier this year, Scott Brown voted with his Republican Party against equal pay for women. He cosponsored the Blunt amendment, a Republican bill that could allow employers and insurance companies to deny women insurance coverage for basic health care services — even contraception — by citing vague moral objections.
And Scott Brown supports Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan — a presidential candidate who says he wants to end Planned Parenthood and a vice presidential candidate who cosponsored legislation that could outlaw some birth control pills.
Last week, Scott Brown received the endorsement of Massachusetts Citizens for Life — the Commonwealth’s leading anti-choice organization. They said:
“We consider [Scott Brown] a senator who votes prolife. We have to take his word for it when he says he is prochoice. But what we’re looking for is someone who votes prolife, and he does.”
Women and families across the country need to know what the Republican agenda means for them. And people in Massachusetts need to know that they can’t count on Republican Scott Brown.
