The Planned Parenthood abortion business is flooding mailboxes of voters in the battleground state of Virginia with attacks on Mitt Romney’s pro-life positions on abortion and abortion funding.

The double sided mailer hits Romney over his position favoring reversal of the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision that resulted in 55 million abortions and allows abortions virtually any time in pregnancy for any reason. It also attacked him for his comments saying he would “get rid of” federal taxpayer funding for the nation’s abortion giant.

“Do I believe the Supreme Court should overturn Roe v. Wade? Yes I do,” Romney is quoted as saying, and the mailer responds, “He means states could be allowed to end safe legal abortion, even in cases of rape, incest, or when a woman’s life is at risk.”

“Mitt Romney would go too far and interfere in a woman’s personal medical decisions,” the mailer says.

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is behind the mailer to Virginia voters, sent in advance of early voting in that state.

Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg responded to the mailers in comments to CNN.

“More false and dishonest attacks from President Obama’s allies can’t hide his failed record,” Henneberg said. “President Obama’s policies have made it more difficult for women to start businesses, keep more money in the bank, or see their children graduate with good jobs on the horizon.”
