Message to McCain about Rape and Choice

I haven’t talked about it much in years, but when I was in college I was raped and became pregnant, and within a short period of time miscarried. The idea that I would be forced to carry a baby to term against my will by the McCain/Palin government makes me more than a little angry. And the truth is that although I choose not to deal with this issue as though it’s something that is behind me and I’ve moved on from — that’s a real mistake in my outlook. It’s not as though I or any woman I know is suddenly safe from being raped because I dealt with the past event emotionally and overcame. This is still an issue for me and should be for every woman.

Let me refresh your memory with a clip from last night on where John McCain stands on the issue of choice and women’s health:

    We have an issue on our state ballot that would amend our state constitution that would define a “person” as from the moment of fertilization. It would effectively ban all abortions, including in cases of rape, incest and where the mothers life is at risk. Both our pro-life governor and the Archbishop of Denver have come out against this ballot issue, saying it goes too far. Still, it’s a toss-up as to whether it will pass.
    I want to thank you for sharing this personal and tragic part of your life with me. Wil

    McCain is a fucking pig with his “pro-abortion” crap and air quotes around the word health. I didn’t like him to begin with, but now I want to punch him in his stupid mouth.
