It's so true. It's horrible enough for a woman to be raped, but then to be forced to spend the next year carrying a reminder of the man who did it to her is unspeakable. And if it were up to McCain, she couldn't even have an abortion if her life were in danger.

It has always offended me to hear a man make absolutist statements about abortion. It is very easy to have a staunch and angry position about a procedure you will NEVER have to undergo.
It offends me even more to listen to a woman make such statements, BECAUSE this is a procedure that is so personal to each woman and her situation.

thankyou for posting this. It was quite powerful.
