Scott Brown Promises Women He Has Supported Contraception Since He Was Barely Legal


In an effort to defend his record on supporting women’s access to contraceptives, Scott Brown has potentially shared more information than any single voter wants to know.

“To think that I don’t support women’s rights and ability to get contraception is just a false premise,” Brown said during a Monday debate with Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). “I have since I was 18 years old.”

Brown, who is the GOP senate candidate in New Hampshire, was responding to a question regarding his past co-sponsorship of legislation opposing Obamacare because of its requirement mandating employers provide healthcare coverage (birth control being the most controversial) to workers.

He did not elaborate on the exact fundamental shift that occurred when he turned 18. Perhaps, Brown was overwhelmed by his newfound civic duty to vote in a presidential election?
