During a question and answer session in Bettendorf, Iowa on Monday, a voter asked Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz about his position on contraception for women.
Cruz responded by attacking Hillary Clinton's position on abortion and dismissing accusations that conservatives want to ban contraceptives.
Cruz, calling Republican opposition to contraception a "made up, nonsense example," then added that, last time he checked, "we don't have a rubber shortage in America."
"When the 'war on women' came up, the Republicans would curl up in a ball and say 'don't hurt me.' Jiminy cricket! This is a made up, nonsense example," Cruz said. "Last I checked, we don't have a rubber shortage in America. Look, when I was in college, we had a machine in the bathroom. You put 50 cents in and voila!"
