Rand Paul: Stephanopoulos and ABC might have helped manufacture the “war on women”
SENATOR RAND PAUL (R-KENTUCKY): Well, you know, you can look back to the last primary season and you wonder whether there was collusion between some reporters. You know, Stephanopoulos asks an obscure question about Griswold and birth control when no Republicans were bringing up anything about trying to put limits on birth control.
RIVERA: Griswold v. Connecticut, a big privacy Supreme Court decision way back when, but kind of obscure. You’re right.
PAUL: Yeah, and I’m in favor of the Griswold decision because I am in favor of privacy. But the thing is, it was a weird thing to bring up in a debate, and nobody understood why. But then for two years, the President’s campaign then ran ads saying that the Republicans were against people allowing birth control. So you wonder if there was a concerted action between a former Democrat operative and basically the President’s campaign.
