While McCain and the media are trying to distract us with some stupid argument over a well-known phrase, we should be talking about how the Republican platform would decide that a fetus, any fetus, is more valuable than a grown woman, even if it’s going to kill the woman and/or not survive anyway. How it includes more protection of “conscience.” How it has language that veers dangerously close to suggesting that federal funds couldn’t support clinics providing birth control. How it opposes end-of-life autonomy in assisted suicide. How it “salutes” “pregnancy care centers” – which actually means the crisis pregnancy centers, some of which actively mislead pregnant women.
Uh, could we possibly stop talking about Palin and start talking about the guys actually. running. for. President?
