    In a statement accompanying the video’s release, Reiner wrote that Romney and running mate Paul Ryan would ‘eviscerate women’s rights’ if they were elected in November.

    ‘We’d be talking about getting rid of abortion, birth control, access to health care screenings. As a husband, son and father, I can’t stand by and let this happen,’ Reiner wrote.
