I actually had this conversation with my in-laws this weekend.

How'd it go?

I should add: I don't think they believed me.

Sadly, the “pro-life” crowd has been pretty sucessful in setting up a picture of diametric opposites and framing those who support choice and privacy as “pro-abortion”. Perhaps the pro-choice movement needs to work on reframing “pro-life” as “anti-women”.

Mom

If the “pro-life” people would actually take the time to listen to any woman who faced the necessity of deciding to have an abortion they would know the anguish it takes – and continues to take – on the woman and on those who are privy to the decision-making process. HEALTH is always an issue – not an excuse – be it mental health or physical health. And at odd moments throughtout that woman's life she will wonder about that child who almost was.

I wonder how John McCain would react if others viewed his war wounds as fictional health issues that can be used as an excuse not to raise his arms.

All I know is I saw RED when he made that “health” comment last night. And if any woman thinks that because he chose a female running mate he understands or supports women, they deserve to have him decide their fate!!!

Amen, Mom. Amen.

i accidentally said “pro-abortion” once and realized how stupid it sounded coming out of my mouth.

A friend is die-hard pro life/conservative. I told her I thought it was insulting that he used the term pro-abortion so freely. She said that she agreed with him and it is in fact murder. I just don't think it's right for men to decide a fate for something that they will never have to deal with in the way that a woman might.
