Cybill Shepherd fires salvo in "war on women"
(CBS News) At the very end of a wide-ranging interview on "CBS This Morning," Cybill Shepherd spoke forcefully about what Democratic and progressive politicians have dubbed the Republican and conservative "war on women."
"I just want to say one quick thing," she remarked, "about the 'war on women' and reproductive freedom, including the attack on Planned Parenthood that that not only -- abortion is our constitutional right. We should keep it legal. And also birth control should be available to everyone."
Told by co-host Gayle King they were out of time, Shepherd added, "Cut me off any time you want! I'm going lead the next March on Washington and I'm not gonna wear a bulletproof vest. My mother's scared for me."
