It must be that time again. What time is that, you ask? Why, that would be Republican presidential primary season, when the GOP whores pandering to their social conservative base, bring out the big old boogie monster known as Roe V. Wade.
John McCain is currently at bat.
In South Carolina today, he says he believes Roe v. Wade should be overturned. He told a crowd "I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned."
Now let us rewind back to August 1999, when he held a different view. Then, he said of Roe V. Wade "I'd love to see a point where it is irrelevant, and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary. But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade, which would then force X number of women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations."
I'd like for every "social conservative" who wants Roe V. Wade overturned, to ponder this one thought:
Since January 2001, your party controlled EVERY branch of government, until the Democrats regained control of the legislative branch last month. In other words, your party had six years in which they controlled the entire government, and could have overturned Roe V. Wade. Yet, they failed to do so. Why do you think that is?
Perhaps it's because those that control your party, really aren't interested in overturning Roe v. Wade. Pehaps it's because they WANT Roe v. Wade out there as an issue, in every election cycle. It helps them get money from YOU, if they are able to send out fundraising literature in every election that says "help us overturn Roe v. Wade."
