Yes, because the anti-abortion, anti-birth control agenda of the Republicans... in addition to the rape/pregnancy comments made by prominent Republicans within the last 2 months had nothing to do with it.
That's the lie Democrats told the American public...the truth: Republicans aren't anti-abortion, they're pro-life...in cases of rape, incest or jeopardizing the mother's life, they're all for it...that's Romney's stance. There's definitely no "anti-birth control agenda"...again, another lie told by the democrats to distract Americans. The truth: Republicans don't give a damn whether women use birth control pills or not...they just don't want a mandate requiring John Q Public's tax dollars to have to pay for them...especially if it's contrary to a person or company's religious beliefs. As far as Murdouch and Akin...calling them "prominent Republicans) is a stretch...most people had never heard of them prior to their ridiculous gaffes.
Funny thing about all of this...as a physician, I can tell you, no woman goes without birth control if they desire it...it was a non-issue from the start...again, a distraction by the democratic party. Whether they're getting a 3-month supply from Wal-Mart for $9, cash pay mind you...or I'm giving them samples...no woman is ever denied birth control pills...no matter their economic circumstances.
