NOW Today: Women & 2012


This morning, NOW revisits one of the topic we focus on most - women’s issues.

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards will join us to share the latest with her group’s efforts headed toward November 2012. Richards has made it clear she and Planned Parenthood are for the President - believing Mitt Romney poses great harm to women’s rights. Talking Points Memo quotes Richards as saying that to have Romney go on record saying “we’re going to get rid of Planned Parenthood…is just so far off the reservation.”

Women are going to play a big role in this election, and the margin by which they vote will play a critical role in the winning candidates final tally. We’ll explore that today at noon ET, on NOW.
