Tell the GOP Candidates: Women won't stand for your radical agenda

This petition had 30,543 supporters

The ultraconservative influence of the Tea Party has forced moderate voices completely out of the Republican field. Politicians have had to either shift their positions further and further to the right or risk losing any chance at becoming the nominee.

Mitt Romney is now a leading voice in the GOP War on Women, having made an anti-choice pledge and opposing abortion EVEN when a woman's health is in danger. He also supports eliminating all federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

Newt Gingrich’s anti-women views are absolutely horrific.  As a member of Congress, he voted for anti-choice policies 72 times and even wanted to bar Washington D.C. from using local tax dollars to fund health care for low-income women.

Rick Santorum believes women should have no choice over the course of their pregnancy, even if they have been victims of rape or incest. He's called Planned Parenthood "poisonous" and opposes any and ALL methods of birth control for women.

Not one of the Republican candidates running has stood up and said he or she would make women's issues a priority as president. In fact, they are doing just the opposite by fueling the GOP War on Women.

Tell Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum, that women will not stand for their radical, right-wing, anti-family agenda.
