It’s a busy time for me just now. Still, wanted to post something about the many myriad emails I’m getting about what’s going on down south. This one is funny–apparently the Stupak amendment which would not allow federal funding to pay for abortions “denies women’s rights.” Really? Because there’s never been federal funding for abortions through health care as I understand it but now that the status quo remains it somehow has a devastating effect on women?
Like I said, I’m busy these days, so maybe I am misunderstanding something here. Either way, whenever someone says “abortion is a woman’s right” that’s my cue to jump in and ask why. And people don’t generally have a very good answer for that. (Ya, I don’t accept “her right to control her body.” Come up with something new and even just a tiny bit logical.)
