An ad that is provocative for certain. Unfortunately – once you get past the sensationalism of it … you see a sad truth. Before abortions were legal … women would try many unsafe procedures including wire hangers and ingesting dangerous chemicals in order to abort the fetus.
And now – the Republican party’s official platform position is to eliminate abortion even in cases of rape or incest. That is just EXTREME. We’ve written about that HERE; an excerpt:
A personhood amendment would prevent some forms of birth control; it would also make the morning after pill illegal and akin to murdering a human being if ingested. Under a person hood amendment women would be prosecuted for failing to follow the laws a mostly male set of elected officials in government makes law regarding what she chooses to do with her own body. In fact – this is such a STANDARD position within the conservative movement that Mitt Romney’s vice president nominee – Paul Ryan – is considered the ideal conservative to represent the party. Unfortunately for Romney – when Americans find out just how extreme that is to everyone else who doesn’t consider themselves to be a conservative …. there will be some fallout.
