Dems Label GOP Abortion Position The ‘Romney-Ryan-Akin Platform’

The DNC is connecting the dots between Rep. Todd Akin’s views on abortion, his colleague Paul Ryan’s anti-abortion record and the Republican Party platform in a new video released Thursday. Called “The Romney-Ryan-Akin Platform for Women,” the video begins by showing Akin’s comments about “legitimate rape,” then connects his beliefs to the Romney-Ryan ticket and the GOP’s new party platform. 

While Republicans want to separate themselves from the Akin controversy; Democrats want voters to believe Akin is representative of the GOP and its nominees.
