    Default Why Guns Have Safeties

    Keeping the safety on prevents one from shooting oneself in the foot. Why in the world would Romney choose now to make such a strong comment that can only cost him votes??!!

    The fact that Planned Parenthood can take gubment money and then run political ads for or against a candidate is something I still don't quite get.

    He didn't say anything surprising. PP should not get one dime of taxpayer funds. Let them raise their own money from George Soros.

    Because he is not interested in winning the female vote.

    And, PP does not spend tax payer money on political campaignes nor on abortions! In fact, they save tax payers money by providing health screens prior to many illnesses becoming worse, thus costing tax payers. The abortion money is provided via private donations.

    Th is is a big issue with women outside of RTF's POTUS Place and a losing issue for the Repubs.

    The Libertarian Party believes that all persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. A call for the repeal of the income tax, abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes. LP.org

    Over 80% of the women in this country support the right to an abortion. Taking such a stand against PP, an organization that provides needed medical services above and beyond abortion is part of the war against women. A war that does exsist within the Repub party and will cost them on election day! Maybe not in the deep south but certainly in the key swing states.

    EXACTLY!! Why in the world make this comment NOW??!! He needs to take Newt's advice on this one. In some speech/lecture, Newt said that there are numerous issues for which the Republican position polls between 70% and 90%. Newt suggested that the smart candidate would stand by those issues and smile!! Abortion is not one of those issues and is in fact one of the third rail issues for the republicans!! Mitt should shut up on issues such as that.

    I don't think it will cost him my vote or my wife's, but I guarantee he lost a bunch with that one statement. My wife used planned parenthood for her yearly checkups for about the whole time I was in grad school and that is where we got access to affordable birth control. It wasn't free, but was much less than going to one of the local doctors. Planned parenthood provides a very beneficial service for women who can't afford to go to someone in private practice and saves us ALL a ton of money.

    Too late now. The Dems will use it to mobilize women all across the country on election day. Mitt already had the deep south locked up so there was no need to continue appealing to that vote. What he needs most is support from women in swing states and this will work against him. Abortion is the biggest trust issue women have with the Repubs and having Ryan on the ticket didn't help with the female vote. Now, he is bring the issue into the forefront and that isn't a good thing for anyone wanting to win a national election!

    You are talking out of both sides of your mouth.

    If PPH does not use federal funds for abortion, then how is cutting their funnding effecting abortion?
