Interesting article concerning how McCain/Palin would eliminate the abortion option if they could thereby leaving women with no "choice" at all. Excerpts: (1) In announcing that her 17-year-old daughter was pregnant this week, GOP vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin used this puzzling locution: "We're proud of Bristol's decision to have her baby." (2) John McCain led us through this same hall of mirrors in 2000 when asked what he would do if his then-15-year-old daughter, Meghan, were pregnant. "The final decision would be made by Meghan with our advice and counsel," he said at the time. The point being that a constitutional amendment banning abortion would have left their daughters with no choice at all. Edit: I cannot begin to tell you how this clip from the Daily Show (beginning at about the 1:00 minute mark) completely makes this point. Watch it. Now. Watch it hard. (Thanks emailer Keith). And a backup link in case youtube takes it down.
