The Democratic Party -----------------------

Here's the Republican Party's message to women in 2012: No choice. No exceptions.

After 48 straight hours of Republicans falling all over each other calling for Rep. Todd Akin to rescind his ridiculous, ignorant-of-basic-biological-functions comments about rape and abortion, their party just voted to embrace Akin's position by including a constitutional ban on all abortions -- even in cases of rape or incest -- in their 2012 platform.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are now, incredibly, saying they don't agree with the policies of the party whose nomination they're about to accept, but guess what? The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that the platform was, and I quote, "written at the direction of Romney's campaign."

This is some pretty unbelievable stuff, even by Mitt Romney standards.

It's up to us to make sure voters see through this and know just how dangerously wrong for women these candidates are -- but we can't do it without your help. Donate $X or more today:

Romney, Ryan and the Republican Party are showing their true colors -- and just how dangerous they will be for women if they're victorious on Election Day. We can't let them continue to say one thing to the public while privately pushing to make it harder for women to control their own bodies.

We know what we're up against. And if we aren't able to give Democrats the resources we need to win in November, women in America stand to lose decades of progress.

I'm not willing to let that happen, and I know you aren't either. Donate $X or more today to give Democrats the resources they need to fight back against this dangerous hypocrisy:

It's 2012. The entire Republican Party just said it wants a constitutional amendment telling rape survivors they don't get to make their own health care decisions. Democrats across the country are fighting back.

Help us fight.

Thanks,

Debbie

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Chair Democratic National Committee

P.S. -- Republicans also included a "salute" in their platform to states implementing invasive and medically unnecessary ultrasound laws for women making personal health-care decisions. You can't make this stuff up -- donate now to fight back:
