Obama Touts Record on Women

Hoping to capitalize on high-profile debates over women's issues, President Obama is pointing out his administration's track record. During a White House conference Friday, he railed against Republican opposition to his health-care law, a move he says will kick a million young women off their parents' health coverage and will stop protecting women with pre-existing conditions. He also expressed dismay at the GOP's attempts to cut funding for Planned Parenthood. "Women are not some monolithic bloc," he told the crowd. "Women are not an interest group. You shouldn't be treated that way." A recent poll showed Obama leads Romney in female supporters within 12 key states.
