    An interesting article Matt. As a pro-life woman I cringed when listening to both the hysteria promoted by pro-choice screamers who thought women would lose their rights to contraception AND the sad misguided comments by, yes, white men, about abortion.

    As a Republican I would like to see the candidates manage a cohesive statement that reflects a strong majority opinion of what pro-life believe. But the Republican party also must do a better job getting the word out; certainly Democrats with the media in their pocket, are reaching and influencing more voters.

    I’m at least 9 3/4’s across the this pond from Katie, but she certainly does make some valid points of comparison. However, I find it more interesting that extra emphases is placed on this subject every election season. And, since most of us have a ‘slip of the tongue’ year around & ignore our politicians deeds & misdeeds until our pet issues come up, we pounce on candidates ‘slips’ w/o review. Yes, we are a Republic (thank GOD) & the majority rules, (w-hen they speak/vote) Which is why Romney was our GOP candidate….and that the shift of %’s on the issue of abortion has come about…One side speaks up & takes more of an active participation role.

    I am very very pro choice. A woman’s health whatever it is should be between her and her doctor. Men should not dictate medical care for women. What if women ruled on men’s prostate tests, treatments, erectile dysfunction medicines, etc. A large majority of men do everything possible to keep from paying child support and medical bills for their children when they are a noncustodial parent. Cancelling drivers license does not work, so the mother and child(ren) live in proverty level.

      Valid point. I happen to disagree (obviously) – a life isn’t a medical decision. There’s always adoption of you feel your current economic situation isn”t suitable. That’s what my birth mother felt about me, although I admit I know nothing about the dynamics of my conception.

      If Democrats weren’t pushing for taxpayer-funded abortion, I wouldn’t be as adamant about my pro-life stance as I am now. I’m a social conservative, but I’m not a nut about it. However, I won’t pay for someone to end a human life.
