Planned Parenthood’s new “Women are Watching” campaign features Allen West on its list of “chumps,” a designation reserved for congressmen and congresswomen with the lowest scores on women’s health policies.

As The American Independent previously reported, “the political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) [recently] launched the Women Are Watching (WAW) campaign, a social-media project intended to educate and engage Planned Parenthood supporters throughout the country.”

According to a press release, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) will run online banner ads highlighting “Champs” and “Chumps” of reproductive rights.

Current “Chumps” featured include GOP presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, as well as U.S. Reps. Steve King (R-Iowa), Allen West (R-Fla.), Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) and Todd Akin (R-Mo.). “Champs” include President Obama, U.S. Sens. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.); and U.S. Reps. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.); and former Iowa First Lady Christie Vilsack, who is running for Congress as a Democrat.

West was included on the list for taking up “an agenda that trampled on women’s health.” On the “who we are watching” page for West, Planned Parenthood highlighted a speech he gave in April in which West said:

We need you to come in and lock shields and strengthen up the men that will go into the fight for you. To let these other women know, on the other side, these Planned Parenthood women, the Code Pink women, and all of these women who have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness, to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient.

The group also criticized him for supporting legislation that would stop private health insurance companies from providing comprehensive coverage for women, and mentioned West’s support of an “attempt to bar Planned Parenthood health centers from providing preventive health care like cancer screenings and birth control through federal programs.”

The page also highlighted some of West’s many contreversial remarks regarding women, as well as his contribution “to a Florida magazine that called women ‘oral relief stations.‘”

West is currently preparing for one of the most contentious reelection races in the country.
