PostSubject: How Could Any Woman Vote For a Republican?   Sun Aug 31, 2008 2:25 pm

This is the official Republican Party Platform:


Quote :
* When a woman is impregnated by sexual assault, she should be compelled by force of law to carry through any resultant pregnancy, no matter the psychological aftereffects of the violation or the impact of the involuntary pregnancy on her life.
* When a woman is impregnated by a family memberís sexual assault, she should be compelled by force of law to carry through any resultant pregnancy, no matter the psychological aftereffects of the violation, the impact of the involuntary pregnancy on her life, or the sure-to-be-damaging effects of having a child fathered by a rapist to whom you are inextricably and irrevocably linked by blood - both on the mother and the child.
* When a pregnancy threatens to kill a mother and leave a child motherless or even entirely parentless, the mother should be compelled by force of law to carry through the pregnancy, even if the pregnancy also threatens to kill the child.

That must be it.

(shakes head)


You really have to hate other women to vote for a party that has that for a platform.

That's ridiculous; I can't believe that's actually in their platform!!! That's why I say Obama all the way!

I'm just curious, who are your parents voting for? (This is not meant to be a snark about you living at home in any way.)

My parents used to vote Republican, but that was way before the religious right had any power in the party at all. My father would turn over in his grave (he'd be 99 if he were alive today) if he saw what has become of the republican party now.

My parents (dad and step mother both of whom raised me) were very pro-choice, especially because they had to help my step sister get an illegal, back alley abortion before Roe.
