Once everyone’s done having a good chortle over [Akin], here’s what I’d like to see from the Democratic Party. A full-throated, no hemming or hawing or throat-clearing, defense of a woman’s right to choose. Period. The Supreme Court of the United States decided that a woman’s right to privacy extends to her right to have this particular medical procedure up to a certain point in her pregnancy and, therefore, believe it or not, despite the opinion of you and Jesus, a woman still has that right, and the reasons for her decision do…not…matter and, frankly, are none of your business, or mine, or your pastor’s, or Todd Akin’s. It is solely between the woman, her doctor, her conscience, and her god, if she happens to have one.
Charles Pierce of Esquire explaining better than I can what I’ve been trying to say about Akin all week. Dems conceding that there are “good” and “bad” abortions are undermining Roe as much as Akin is.
