NEW: Warren Calls Akin’s Comments “Reprehensible,” Warns of GOP Agenda for Women

Monday, August 20, 2012

 

In a statement released Monday, Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren hammered Republican senate candidate Todd Akin of Missouri, calling comments he made over the weekend about "legitimate rape" rarely leading to pregnancy "reprehensible."

Warren also took the opportunity to address the Republican Party's stance on women's issues in general.

“I understand that Scott Brown and other Republicans want to pretend Todd Akin is an isolated individual, but he is clearly in line with the Republican agenda," Warren said.

"The agenda of the Republican Party is to limit access to health care services. It’s to deny women equal pay for equal work. It’s to cut funding for Planned Parenthood. And it’s to select as a vice presidential nominee someone who co-sponsored legislation with Rep. Akin to redefine ‘rape.’"
