I'm not a big fan of political discussions...I am ashamed to admit that I am not following all the debate going on about the issues and the election. I will however, vote. I will vote for Obama.
I was on Navelgazing Midwife's blog reading an interesting post and her excellent recourse on the topic of late abortion. Check it out if you are so inclined.
Here's my response on her site...
I am a pro-choice midwife...your argument is absolutely excellent as were the words of many others. You are far more eloquent then I can ever be.
I echo the sentiments that we need to get beyond whether abortion is legal or not...and focus on how can we reduce the numbers of abortions. But I do not believe the two factions can ever settle their differences to meet in the middle. I don't like abortion, probably would never have one myself....however, I firmly believe that the government should have no say so in our bodies. I believe there are times when an abortion is ok. Each woman must make the decision and must live with that decision...not the government.
As far as the video - what propaganda! I worked as a L&D nurse for four years and no baby was ever left in a utility room to die. And certainly not a term one such as the one shown at the end...jeez!
