The nation’s biggest abortion business is practically foaming at the mouth in its anger over Mitt Romney’s selection of pro-life champion Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin congressman, as his vice-presidential running mate.

“Tell Ryan:  No way, no how, hot ever,” Planned Parenthood blared in a big hot pink headline on its web site in response, calling Ryan’s pro-life views anti-woman. “It’s no surprise: Mitt Romney has picked a running mate who’s just as bad as he is on issues affecting women’s health and rights.”

“Women and men who care about women’s health are speaking out now to tell Mitt Romney and his vice presidential candidate, Paul Ryan: we’ll do whatever it takes to keep you from gaining the power to deny women access to care,” it added.

During an appearance on CNN, the president of the abortion business, Cecile Richards said Romney’s pick of Paul Ryan “further shows why he is out of touch and wrong for women.” And Planned Parenthood tweeted in response, “No surprise, @MittRomney makes another choice against women’s health: picks @PaulRyanVP for #VP.”

“Tell them where you stand. Add your name to the letter below,” Planned Parenhtood said as it asked its pro-abortion activists to sign on to a letter bashing Ryan in an attempt gather more names and addresses of supporters to use to rally against the Romney/Ryan ticket.

The letter appears below:



Dear Mr. Ryan,


There’s no way I can support your candidacy for vice president of the United States of America.

Not when you’re committed to banning safe and legal abortion, even for women who are the victims of incest and rape.

Not when you’ve co-sponsored a truly radical bill that would define “personhood” as beginning at conception — which could have outlawed all abortion and even many forms of birth control, including the pill.

Not when you are determined to shut down Planned Parenthood health centers and cut women off from health care.

I stand with millions of people across the country who believe in maintaining and increasing access to health care and funding for women’s health in telling you that there is no way, no how we will let someone like you be elected vice president. Not this November. Not ever.
