Women's rights activist accuses Romney of being in 'lockstep' with blundering 'legitimate rape' law

Washington, Aug 22 (ANI): Women's rights activist Sandra Fluke has claimed that Republican Presidential contender Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan are in lockstep with GOP lawmaker Todd Akin over his controversial comments about 'legitimate rape.'

"Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan tried to distance themselves from the remark, but the fact is they're in lockstep with Akin on the major women's health issues of our time," an email by Fluke read.

According to Politico, Fluke pointed to the GOP platform committee adding an anti-abortion plank in their party platform as evidence for Romney.

"Just this morning, the Republican Party voted to include the 'Human Life Amendment' in their platform, calling for a constitutional ban on abortions nationwide, even for rape victims," she wrote.

"Several Romney supporters and advisers stood silently by while this vote took place, and the Los Angeles Times reports that the platform 'was written at the direction of Romney's campaign," she added.

According to the report, Fluke pointed out that 'this controversy is not an accident, or a mistake, it is a reflection of a Republican Party whose policies are dangerous for women.'

"There is a clear choice for women in this election: Stand with President Obama," she added in the email. (ANI)
