    I think that what she is is a lying intellectually dishonest bad faith Movement Conservative hack. Saying you are pro-Choice as a Republican buys you a huge pass from the Village for any post pro-Choice announcement hackery and wingnut apologia.

    She'd be doing this exact shame bullshit if Rick Santorum was the nominee and Paul Ryan was her VP.

    Rice's good faith and moderation is one of the most grossly overrated political memes in our discourse.

      Very powerful and well-connected Republican Pro-Choice women, like Dr. Rice, always have the same out that Pro-Life women in the same social circle and station in life do: the luxury of being able to say one thing, Pro-Life or Pro-Choice, for political and social purposes, and then the ability to get on a private plane and go overseas to have an abortion in a luxury private European or Asian hospital.

      If Roe is overturned, it's an inconveniece to Dr. Rice.

      It could be a death sentence to millions of others who don't have her options. She can afford to not really give a shit if Roe is overturned or not, she will never be one of those women who might end up under a coathanger hack or in some back-alley Mexican pharmacy looking for drugs to end a pregnancy.

        The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy... the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
