Bachmann: The GOP ‘is extremely pro-woman’

Despite Republicans hosting an all male panel this week in a House hearing on the White House contraception decision, Rep. Michele Bachmann felt Sunday morning her party was unquestionably in support of women’s rights.

Bachmann appeared on CNN’s State of the Union and was asked by host Candy Crowley if she was concerned about Democrats painting Republicans as being anti-women in this year’s elections.

“Look, there is no anti-women move whatsoever,” she said. “The Republican Party is extremely pro-woman. What we saw was President Obama’s signature piece of legislation, which is Obamacare demonstrated in 3D.”
