Obama supporters send out Greeting card ‘Mom can I borrow $18K for birth control’

Women.BarackObama.com is launching a series of electronic greeting cards for women, encouraging supporters to promote the campaign’s message.

“President Obama summed up the Republican Party’s approach to women’s health when he said ‘they want to take us back to the policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century,’” the Obama campaign web page claims. “Send an eCard to say you won’t go back.” (see below)

One of the greeting cards attacks Romney for wanting to overturn Obamacare, claiming it will force women to find alternative sources of funds to pay for birth control.

“Dear Mom,” the card reads. “Mitt Romney says he would repeal the Affordable Care Act. So here’s a quick question: Can I borrow $18,000 to help pay for my birth control? Thanks!”

The number, supposedly based on the lifetime costs of the typical woman who uses birth control regularly during her lifetim. Critics argue the figure is astronomical citing the fact women can “purchase a package of birth control pills for as little as $9 at a local drug store.”

The other two e-cards in the series are meant to continue stirring up the so-called War on Women.
