I was wrong. Last night I watched McCain who twitches and grimaces like he has Tourette’s and Democrat nominee Obama – who looks like an ad from GQ, hash it out – again. It was painful. I think maybe just hearing it might have been better. Watching was painful. And just when I thought they had said everything they could – again – McCain started using a term I was not familiar with. And he used it more than once and I thought he had invented it for the debate. Silly me. Apparently “Pro-Abortion” is used by many groups who distort the actual meaning of Pro-Choice. Here’s two I found – and I didn’t think I would actually find many because it is such an idiotic concept – who would even try. Well I was wrong.
are merely two groups who actively use this term to describe people who want to choose their own actions. As offensive as I find it, I also question the veracity of the term itself. It cannot be an accurate because who can force anyone to have an abortion? Pro-choice groups do not use guns, or bombs or threats to coerce anyone into an abortion. Period. You may have a bully of a parent or husband who tries or succeeds – but that is family. No group I know of – who advocates choice wants you to have an abortion if you would like to have a baby instead. No group who is pro-choice targets pro-life groups for murder. Pro-Choice is a name for people who think having a child or an abortion is private and no ones business but ones own. Pro-Choice says that prevention of unwanted pregnancies is the best way to reduce the need for abortion. They offer choices about preventing unplanned pregnancies – including abstinence. Pro-Life offers one thing and one thing only. A baby. Wanted or Unwanted. Healthy or Compromised. Married or Unmarried. Even rape victims and even mothers at high risk for death. This is pretty much what they want. And now John McCain wants us to accept the term Pro-Abortion and it is simply incorrect. John McCain – who must have folks vetting his terms and speeches – knows that NARAL and Planned Parenthood are NOT Pro-Abortion. John McCain knows that moderate GOP voters know this too. So he comes across as an idiot, a shill and a stooge for the Right Wing Christians. Do I think he is all those things – I don’t know – I just know what he sounded like to me.
A table on Abortion law – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia spells it out pretty clearly and there are many countries who do not allow abortion on request but they do have exceptions that are certainly civilized enough to take into consideration circumstances and health issues. Abortions by country on wiki is a very good way to understand more about the subject and how it is handled elsewhere. Italy says yes across the board. I find this ironic.
But for the most part there are exceptions and there are considerations. Another quick search under the words “foreign abortion + bombings” turned up one in Bangladesh. Pro Life means not killing doctors, nurses and patients
and whatever collateral damage (living things) gets caught in these acts of terror.
There is no Pro-abortion movement and John McCain knew it when he used the term. Pandering to one segment of society is not equal rights. It enslaves women. It encourages and incites riots, killing and acts of domestic terrorism.
Pro-“Life” activists are militant; they put a higher value on some lives than others. They do what domestic terrorists do – they kill, they maim and they deny every American equality. Pro-life is not about life – it’s about control and subjugation. When those wing nuts start talking about what to do with all the babies they are insisting on – then I may hear them out.
For the record, abortion is not birth control but, it is a medical decision that should be made first by a woman and her doctor. Republicans spend more time trying to get into women’s pants than any other bunch I have encountered. For a party that wants less government they certainly want to set one up in my uterus unilaterally and decides what comes in and what goes out.
Embracing personal choice is voting and worshipping and speaking on terms protected by the Constitution. Maybe the snake handling, holy rollers and fundamentalists should read the Constitution instead of scripture. And maybe John McCain should work on keeping his foot out of his mouth.

This world, today, is a terrifying spot to be in, I have created a non-sectarian, plea to whomever you wish to ask for aid and succor. Please feel free to share it.
“Dear Person of Power in the Spiritual Plane:
Please keep me from ever being in a financial position or a tax bracket that makes voting for a Republican ever seem like the right thing to do. Keep me solvent but liquid, keep me concerned for my fellow man and not my Board of Directors and please, whatever you do, bring Barack Obama to the White House. And when you have done that please pick a house and send John McCain to it and throw away the key. Strap Sally Six-Pack in a dog sled and mush her back to Juneau and deliver us from having this sort of crap exist.
