It's Democrats who are responsible for the so-called "war on women" — not Republicans, according to Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.

Perkins told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV that House Speaker John Boehner saying GOP lawmakers need to be more sensitive to women stems from Democrats' ongoing battle cry that Republicans hate women.

Story continues below video.



"I just came back from a couple of meetings on the Hill and I talked to some members who were in that session [with Boehner] … and here's what this is: this is a reaction to this so-called War on Women," Perkins said.

"Let me tell you where the war on women is being waged. It is the Democratic Party that's putting an ideological emphasis on … the contraceptive mandate," he said.

"[That is] going to cost jobs … cost women the ability to provide for their families, [and] take away their healthcare because they're putting organizations and businesses in a position of having to choose between their religious freedoms, their conscience, and providing healthcare.

"Who needs to apologize for that? Not Republicans, it's the Democrats, it's the president that's pushing this failed policy that's kicking families off of the coverage from healthcare and potentially ending their jobs ... So who's waging a war on women and the things that women care about?"
