Pro-Choice is Not Pro-Abortion

There is an article today on RawStory.com quoting Penny Young Nance saying that Roy Moore’s opponent support ‘full-term abortion’.    She is liar.  Doug Jones has clarified his position:

“I fully support a woman’s freedom to choose to what happens to her own body,” Jones said. “Having said that, the law for decades has been that late-term procedures are generally restricted except in the case of medical necessity. That’s what I support. I don’t see any changes in that.”  (1)

That said, being in support of a woman’s right to choose what she does with her body is not the same being FOR abortion.  One can say they prefer abortions do not happen, but still leave it up the person who chooses the procedure.

The radical-right has taken the idea of being pro-choice and weaponized it to scare the gullible base they pander to into believing that a person would willing ‘dismember’ an unborn child, just so as to not have to raise that child.

This is absurd.  The choice between the life of an unborn child or a living person is not a difficult one.  Most people would prefer to live.  However, if the pregnant woman chooses to die rather than abort, that is also her choice — not the choice of someone else because of thier religious beliefs.

Your religion is not grounds to impinge on other’s rights and bodies.
