Planned Parenthood Action president Cecile Richards, is featured in the latest Obama campaign video, praising the President for insuring free birth control and warning voters about Mitt Romney.

"We worked very hard with this administration to ensure that regardless of their employer to get access to birth control with no expensive co-pay or deductible," Richards says, as a photo in the video features Obama bumping fists with a nurse.

In a video which features several young children and babies, Richard praises president Obama for his record of support for the largest abortion provider in the country, but she is careful not to mention the word 'abortion.'

"Most of the women who come to Planned Parenthood come because they need preventive care access," she insists. "They need access to affordable birth control, life saving cancer screenings, and the kind of care we provide."



Richards added that Romney, "literally wants to take women back to the 1950s."

We're not sure about that, but maybe she has inside information about a time-traveling Delorean in his garage.
