  •  Perkins has never cared about the unborn (10+ / 0-)

    He just knows that the issue of abortion is a very powerful emotional lever.  It's a lever to wrench open peoples pockets so money falls out.  It's a lever to wedge unpopular, lying Republicans into office.

    Thinking about voting Democratic?  Here, have you seen this picture of a dead baby?

    If he really, truly cared, he would support any policy to reduce unwanted pregnancies.  

    He would have been a Clinton supporter as abortions were down under Clinton.

    He would support sex ed and ubiquitous access to contraception.

    He would support an increase in the social safety net, so women felt they had other options.

    Issue after issue that has been proven to reduce the rates of abortion have been completely ignored by asshats like Perkins because at the end of the day, he is just a partisan, money grubbing worm.

    •  It's not like, in the past 32 years, the Right (4+ / 0-)

      hasn't had a filibuster/veto-proof majority with which to actually overturn Roe v. Wade. They don't want to. You never know when one of your mistresses might need one.

      I believe in democracy, civil liberties, and the rule of law. That makes me a liberal, and I’m proud of it. - Paul Krugman
