Nancy Keenan, the president of one of the biggest pro-abortion groups in the country, attacked Mitt Romney on the issue of abortion during the Democratic convention Tuesday night.

“Put simply, women in America cannot trust Mitt Romney,” Keenan claimed, despite the fact that Romney leads among married women voters.  “We cannot trust Mitt Romney to protect our health. He would repeal ObamaCare, taking away our access to better maternity and prenatal care, and the law’s near universal coverage of birth control. And we cannot trust Mitt Romney to respect our rights.”

Keenan blasted Romney because he has repeatedly called for overturning Roe v. Wade, the case that has spawned 55 million abortions.

“Mitt Romney would take away our power to make decisions about our lives and our futures,” Keenan said. “But there’s one decision he cannot take away — and that’s the one women will make on Nov. 6.”

Keenan also went after Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin, who recently made some controversial remarks on the issue of pregnancy and rape.

“We believe that rape is rape,” Keenan said. “We believe that a woman should make healthcare decisions with her family, her doctor, and her God. And we believe that there’s no place in that room for politicians — especially politicians who don’t know how women’s bodies work.”
