  1. why can’t they just call it ABORTION? If it’s not a dirty word, why not call it what it is? ABORTION. Just say it…..ABORTION. Why is ABORTION called CHOICE?

  2. It’s “Choice” because its a woman right to choose whether or not to have an abortion. PRO-Abortion means favoring abortion.

    Did Bob Cohen answer the questionnaire? Did he place any restrictions on choice? Perhaps his position changed from 2010 to 2012. The GOP national platform calls for the end of choice. Maybe Bob’s toeing the party line. If he says he pro-choice, maybe he should tell his Republicans in Crestwood that he’s pro-choice if he is.

    Maybe Bob’s trying to have it both ways: Pro-Choice at the front door with a Democrat, Anti-Choice at the front door with a Republican.

  3. Thanks for Blogging, Mitt on
