The Pink Tour rolled into Virginia's capital city Sunday with a familiar play list.

No, not the pop-rock singer.

The organization whose mission has been routinely derided by GOP candidates on a variety of levels heading into November's elections.

There was even a dancing birth control pill.

Per the Richmond Times-Dispatch, "The rally, which featured the national president of the nonprofit women’s health group’s political wing, three lawmakers from Virginia and at least one woman sporting a costume shaped like a package of birth-control pills, took aim at Republican politicians who have pushed legislation seen as detrimental to women’s health issues and restricting access to family-planning and abortion procedures.

"Eric Ferrero, vice president of communications for Planned Parenthood’s Action Fund, said the bus tour is targeted at swing voters in battleground states that could decide the presidential election." http://bit.ly/OlUzmX
