President Obama: Women Should ‘Control Their Own Health Choices’


In the kickoff of his 2012 campaign last weekend, President Obama attacked Republicans for starting a “political fight” over abortion and contraception.

I want women to control their own health choices, just like I want my daughters to have the same opportunities as your sons.” Watch here (relevant portion begins at 3:48):
