Default Re: Keeping The Faith

What's the evidence that Amy Sullivan is a liberal? She sure doesn't talk like one, and she doesn't seem willing to stand up to that right-wing demagogue Wehner.

There are a couple of things:
1. Like all Republicans, Wehner doesn't give a rat's ass about poor people, so for them to pretend they do is just a lie.
2. She can't call anti-abortion nuts "pro-life". They're not. If they were they would be opposed to capital punishment, war, global exploitation, and for anti-poverty programs, immunizations around the world, and, most importantly, honest sex education and universal availability of contraception.
3. She needs to step up and say that if we want to make abortion rare, and a key component of reduction of the need for abortion, is universal availability of contraception.
4. There is no great mystery about why people want to reduce the frequency of abortion. Whether you agree that it is murder, as the anti-choicers claim to, or not, it is a terrible decision for the woman to have to make, and if we can avoid that by creating economic conditions that support stable families, and by enabling everyone who needs it to have affordable, reliable contraception and Plan B, then we'll have made progress by avoiding imposing the kind of pain on women as a punishment for having sex that the R's want to.
