Planned Parenthood's 'Champs' and 'Chumps'

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund has come out with a new website that outlines politicians' positions on abortion and funding for Planned Parenthood, labeling candidates running in the 2012 congressional and presidential elections either "champs" or "chumps" for their stances on women's issues.

Planned Parenthood is also buying online ads calling out the "chumps." Cecile Richards, the president of the Action Fund, said in a statement the group started the "Women are Watching" campaign "to give women a place to share their energy and important information regarding what's at stake in the upcoming election."

The Action Fund's top "champs" are President Obama, Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and their biggest "chumps" are Republican presidential candidates Rick Perry and Mitt Romney and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa).
