However, I don’t work hard enough to hammer the Right when they are wrong or praise the Left when they are right. [hee hee].
I wanna work on that, and so, to this end, I support the pro-choice legislation introduced by the 2 NY senators.
I’ve long argued that there is a rational position in the abortion debate.
At some point, the collection of cells become a human being. At that point, that human being is entitled to inalienable rights. Including life.
However, this should not prevent a mother from having to choose in certain circumstances. And I think two of them are:
- Victim of a crime
- Health of mother/baby are in question
Further, I think most Americans agree with that position. Whatever that means.
Because of that stance, I think this proposition is entirely appropriate:
Two Democratic lawmakers are calling on Congress to pass legislation that would make it legal for federal funds to be used to pay for abortions for service women who are victims of rape or incest or whose lives would be endangered by a pregnancy.
This is easy. Politics should be set aside and this bill should make it to law.
