2008 Elections: Women and McCain

Okay, apparently the women of PUMA don't give a damn about reproductive choice for women (see it for yourself at Hillary is 44 dot org, to which we refuse to link) because they're all older than Methusaleh and their reproductive bits have dried up and fallen out and are therefore not in danger from the McFail people.

But our understanding is that women of many different political stances believe that while abortion should be rare, it should also be available if a woman's health will be negatively affected by carrying a pregnancy to term. We personally know of two women who had to terminate very-much-wanted and planned pregnancies because of health issues, and while they were very sad to do so (as we pointed out, they very much wanted the pregnancy), to have attempted to carry to term would have either killed or crippled the mother and the outcome for the fetus was not much better.

Apparently, John McFail doesn't think that a mother's health should be a consideration:



La Casa de Los Gatos is currently betting that McFail has just lost the election.

I wish you'd send me the story of your encounter with the healthcare system when you gave birth. It's infuriating and you need to rant it right out of your system and I'm sure you'll get a lot of feedback from other women who are fucking sick and tired of the crap they have to put up with from a healthcare system that assumes the norm is straight, white, and male.
