Rachel Maddow rips into Mitt Romney on the latest episode of Man Cave

As one of our ever-articulate staff members noted over a fancy dinner last night, "Being pregnant isn't fun, it's getting pregnant that's the fun part." That whole pre-fertilization dance that so many of us enjoy, has been made so much less stressful and terrifying since that glorious day in 1960 when birth control pills were made available to the women of America. Well, women of America, get ready for sex to be even more stress-inducing than it already is. Mitt Romney wants you to get pregnant.

The presidential candidate supported a pro-life bill that would make all hormonal contraceptives illegal. That's right, moving forward into history by making birth control illegal. Are we headed for the apocalypse? Since making the statement, Romney recanted, saying he was unaware that the bill included oral contraceptives. But we have a feeling that this seething video-attack by our girl Rachel Maddow had something to do with it.  Watch above.
