Bc we believe it's the murder of another human life and we have forced our belief on others that murder is wrong.i have to agree. i think obama believes women are intelligent enough to be able to make choices concerning their own bodies. You can have your beliefs just dont force them on others.I don't think that he's selling out, I honestly think he is pro- choice, as a huge percentage of women are. I respect those who choose to be pro-life, but I don't respect the notion of forcing that on other women. What of the tables were turned, and abortions were forced on women who were pregnant out of wedlock? It sounds preposterous, and almost laughable to think that would ever happen, right? Why is it not preposterous to for others to force their opinion on women who choose to abort? Why is it still a debate? I feel the same way about gay marriage. Why are straight, homophobic people forcing their opinion on gay people? If Obama were not pro-choice, I don't think I could vote for him. That's obviously not the only reason why I voted for him, but if he spoke out against my rights to control my body, I couldn't vote for him.I agree both sides did a poor job courting women voters. I am pro-life/anti-abortion rights and I think Obama had to sell out his true pro-life position to win this election, and that makes me sick. But it's the way of the world anymore, sadly. So he lost stripes w/ me over that one. But redeemed himself slightly w/ the Ledbetter Bill.
Mitt Romney...not doing anything one way or another for women and he's smarmy, elist, racist prick, so there you go.
I don't think the premise of forced abortion really makes sense. My objection isn't that something is forced. It is that I don't believe in killing people.
