    our bishops would have been leading the fight for universal health care! Now they tell us that it is licit to vote for Republicans because they have "different solutions" (i.e. go to the emergency room and/or die.)

    As a Catholic voter, and a bit of a renegade for dKos I am sure, I do consider abortion as an issue. It doesn't not matter to me. But what about all the GOP's immoral wars, their hunger for the death penalty, and their lust for what little wealth the poor still have?

    Sad to see these shepherds consumed by the wolves.

      Remember Mitt's silver-spoon sonny-boy Tagg had an abortion out clause for his surrogate mother if the offspring didn't look like it was going to be suitably perfect for the Romney breeding stock.

      So in other words Taggy Boy is really really against abortion, unless somehow he and his surrogate spawned some unholy mutant.

      And also remember, Mitt himself is part owner of a medical waste disposal company which disposes of dead fetuses. You think Mitt is going to give up five cents of potential profits?

        the fact is, they'll fly their own to Europe, or some island paradise while mere mortals resort to coathangers.  That's my fear, anyway.

        If you think you're too small to be effective, you've never been in the dark with a mosquito.

          ... and you will have to get an official Jeebus-Approved Doctor to certify it is indeed crucial for the life of the mother.

          Which of course will be no problem for the plutocrats -- they will have a list of Special Doctors who will always be willing to Be Reasonable.

          Everybody else will be have big problems.
