Planned Parenthood continues anti-Romney mail push in Virginia

Washington (CNN) - Planned Parenthood's political arm is out with the latest installment of an aggressive mail program targeting female voters in Virginia.

A new mail piece attacking Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and Virginia Senate candidate George Allen will begin hitting mailboxes in northern Virginia and Richmond this week, the group says.

It's Planned Parenthood's third mailer hitting Romney in a matter of weeks.

The two-sided postcard, titled "Julie," showcases a woman's testimonial about the "deeply personal" decision she and her husband made to have an abortion.

"It was not easy, and it had nothing to do with politics," the woman is quoted as saying.

The flip side of the mail piece highlights Romney and Allen's shared desire to overturn Roe v. Wade and end federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

"Mitt Romney and George Allen would go too far and interfere in personal health decisions that should be left up to a woman and her doctor," the mailer reads.

The mail piece is being sent to 212,000 households in the commonwealth targeting 225,000 women.

    I thought planned parenthood is funded by the government. If so, how are they using tax payer funds for political purposes?

    How sick and twisted – there is no difference between the child in the womb and a child outside the womb! MURDERER!!! And the horrifying 'Planned Parenthood' who exploits women and murders millions!

    This is not news. Everyone knows planned parenthood backs democrats. This is just CNN disseminating their literature for them.

    So planned parenthood is going to use donated dollars to the tune of at least 100,000 to jump in the political arena. That is so wrong.
