The following is from an article at Catholic Vote:
Democrat Rep. Gary Peters of suburban Detroit is normally a very strong campaigner. But he’s having a tougher time than expected as he tries to win the Senate seat of retiring Democrat Carl Levin.
To help him sagging poll numbers, Peters thought he would bring back the “war on women” campaign tactic that proved very successful for Democrats in 2012.
Surely you remember the faux “war or women.” This is where feminists and Democratic candidates went before tv cameras and aired commercials asserting that if Republicans like Mitt Romney won women would somehow be unable to purchase contraception anymore.
The Pill has been readily available at every corner drug store for over 50 years. Contraception has even been subsidized by state and federal governments for decades.
No political candidate has suggested making the Pill illegal.
We expect politicians to lie, but the “war on women” attack has got to be the most disingenuous political attack of the last 50 years.
If you don’t favor forcing businesses to offer contraception as a free benefit to employees, then somehow you are “anti-woman” and you want to make contraception illegal.
It’s a total lie. But it worked in 2012. So Gary Peters went for this attack and called his opponent “anti-woman.”
The only problem? Gary Peters’ opponent is a woman.
And Terri Lynn Land refused to let this garbage attack go unanswered. She pounced on Peters’ nonsense talk with a very clever ad of her own.
