And, PL, would you vote for a PC candidate?


I frequent a board called Debate.com.

I would vote for the candidate who was going to do the most overall to reduce abortion (assuming I like their other politics and this is the deciding factor) If they just want to make it illegal and say too bad for anyone who gets pregnant I would be tempted to beat them with the stupid stick.

I've never been a single issue voter and never will be. I think it's an immature and short sighted abuse of the serious responsiblilty of the vote.


Did you know there is also a group called Republicans for Choice?


Anyway....a candidate's position and record on choice is important to

We are not so very far apart on that.

I am PL myself so yes if I agreed with what they were saying AND they were willing to put the WORK into stopping abortion (not just pass a law that we as a society are unprepared for) I would vote for them.

In Virginia, it's hard to find a pro-choice candidate at all. So yes, I have and probably will again vote for someone who is pro-life. What gets me is that so many of them are working to reduce other reproductive rights.

Anyway....a candidate's position and record on choice is important to me, but it's not the deciding factor. Although, this election it will weight more heavily than usual because of the risk of it being a litmus test for several likely SCOTUS appointments."

Misa, I'm sorry, I know you have said this before, but what are your views on MAP. Some PL feel that this is abortion as well. If you believe MAP is okay is that where you draw the line?

Emphatically, obstinately and resoundingly: NO. LOL!
I've never voted for a Republican BECAUSE I cannot vote for a person who would seek to take away my reproductive health care choices and rights.
If I absolutely could not stomach the Democrat, Id' write in a different vote.

I would only vote for a PL person if they knew that their belief's were not the only ones and did not want to make abortion illegal.

Let's say it isn't a Republican, but a new breed of Democrat - like one of the Democrats for Life who were running.
