And yet the real ”extremists’ war on women” is from Islamists like the Taliban who publicly execute women for “adultery,” the same group Obama is trying to negotiate with.
The National Organization for Women, a prominent liberal women’s rights group, has endorsed President Obama for reelection, the group announced Wednesday.
“NOW PAC is proud to stand behind a president who unquestionably represents the path forward to achieve equality for women. Throughout the past four years President Obama has listened to our concerns and repeatedly stood up for women’s rights against a right-wing juggernaut bent on undermining our access to reproductive health care, our economic security and even our safety from intimate partner violence and sexual assault,” the group said in a statement.
Citing Obama’s health care reform, the Lilly Ledbetter pay act, and the Violence Against Women Act, the group blasted some elements in the GOP — invoking the Democratic refrain of a “war on women.”
“The extremists’ War on Women is all too real, and in order to win this struggle we must have strong allies in the White House who will work with us to implement policies that empower the women of this country to live healthy, safe and productive lives. President Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden have shown time and again that they are our allies,” the group said.
