Republicans need to face reality on abortion, for the good of the party and for the good of the country.
Here are my thoughts on abortion …
I do not want to control women. However, I don’t want to pay for their abortions.
This doesn’t make me chauvinist, bigoted, or fill-in-the-blank-phobic.
While I support a woman’s right to choose, I do not want to pay for her choice.
Her conscience is hers, not mine. My money is mine, not hers.
Plus, why should I pay for something that can be avoided by both behavior & science?
And, abortion can be avoided before, during, and after the sex act that causes a woman to become pregnant.
I do, however, believe we have to come to some reasonable, humane, limitation on abortion. Third trimester and up-until-birth abortions are abhorrent, wicked, evil, and inhumane.
Lefties and radical feminists can try to shame me about this, but I just don’t care.
I believe Republicans need to adopt this position, across-the-board, without exception. If they did, they would attract a significant share of independents.
