Excerpted from The Huffington Post: Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) spoke out forcefully in favor of reproductive rights on Wednesday in Homer, Alaska, as many in her party have sought to restrict them.

“It makes no sense to make this attack on women,” she said on KBBI AM 890 Public Radio’s Coffee Table program, according to the Homer News. “If you don’t feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters.”

She also said that she would continue to support funding for Planned Parenthood, adding that the courts have affirmed a legal right to an abortion and she stands by that.

Murkowski criticized GOP presidential candidates for not condemning Rush Limbaugh for calling Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute,” which he later apologized for. Fluke was rejected as a witness before a panel on the Obama contraception mandate chaired by House Oversight And Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) last February. . . .

“To have those kind of slurs against a woman. . . you had candidates who want to be our president not say, ‘That’s wrong. That’s offensive.’ They did not condemn the rhetoric,” she said.

Murkowski voted for the failed Blunt Amendment last month along with all but one Republican, which would have allowed employers to refuse to cover contraception or any other health service for moral reasons. She later said she regretted her vote and wouldn’t do it again if she had the chance.

    We have an actual sitting president who has said nothing about a bounty being set on someones head by his buddies in the new black panthers but yes a radio host making a bad joke is much more serious!

    Murkowski… if we want your opinion we will give it to you, otherwise shut the fuck up.

    Murkowski continuing to masquerade as a Republican,

    is as genuine as obama’s sudden devotion to women.

    Clearly, those two underestimate the capacity of the American people,

    to remember factual detail which contradicts their respective charades.
