Kleefisch: Most Women Prize Family, Not Birth Control

Ad Feedback

Abortion could become a hot issue in this election, with many pro-life voters worried taxpayer funding of the practice is just ahead for America.

The topic was addressed by a group of pro-life women who gathered just outside the Republican National Convention to celebrate female leaders like Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

Among them was Wisconsin  Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, who just survived a nasty recall battle along with popular Tea Party figure, Gov. Scott Walker.

The lieutenant governor told CBN News Chief Political Correspondent David Brody pro-life efforts to limit abortions aren't a "war on women" because most women don't want abortions.

"I think you would be very surprised at how few women put free abortions and government-paid-for birth control at the top of their priority list," she said. "Most women prioritize their relationships, their family, making ends meet."

"It's insulting; it's ignorant frankly to say 'women believe that reproductive rights… are number one for all the women in America,'" she said.
