The Obama presidential campaign is out with a new video today featuring Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, who makes the wild-eyed claim that presidential candidate Mitt Romney wants to take women back to the 1950s.

“We worked very hard with this administration to ensure that regardless of their employer to get access to birth control with no expensive co-pay or deductible,” says Richards in what amounts to a two minute advertisement for the abortion business.

“Most of the women who come to Planned Parenthood come because they need preventive care access,” she insists. “They need access to affordable birth control, life saving cancer screenings, and the kind of care we provide.”

Richards claimed Romney, “literally wants to take women back to the 1950s.”

Nowhere in the Obama campaign video does the word abortion appear, even though Planned Parenthood does more than 25 percent of all abortions in the United States and 51 percent of its clinic income comes from abortion sales.
