    "Twisting" abortion exceptions ...

    There is no such thing and they know it - once the government gets involved -there are no exceptions - period.

    Courts, politicians, and bureaucrats will regulate women's bodies - and that is exactly what the "Anti Women's Rights" movement wants - exceptions are THEIR talking points.

    Calling these groups "pro life" is also disingenuous and should be stopped - at least amongst progressives.

    If not us ... who? If not here ... where? If not now ... when?

      I like the little frisson in aligning them with those other nuts, the "Where's the Certificate" Birthers.

        into the consciousness of the general, voting public. Because "forced birth" is what they really want. They don't actually give a damn about a zygote in a stranger's uterus. They just want her to stay pregnant against her will.

        I agree with previous posters: The GOP will not change its positions. But we must not allow them to avoid discussion of any sneaky anti-women legislation or dialogue.
