  •  I never hear it noted, (6+ / 0-)

    especially by republicans, that Roe V Wade decision was made by a republican appointed SCOYUS. There were only 3 Dem appointees and one of them voted against it.

    I do recall that decision, I was 17, single and newly pregnant. I did not have an abortion but was relieved to have that legal right, that choice, just as I also chose not to marry. My son is 33 now and he and his wife are expecting their first child. They were surprised but happy.
    A couple years ago his wife was found to have malignant melomoma, luckily in situ and only found so early  because she insisted her doctor biopsy the harmless looking flesh colored bump that the doctor insisted was nothing.
    What if it had gone otherwise and this was found in a much later stage after she was pregnant.
    I can't bear the idea of any woman ever having to fight for the right to abortion when she us fighting for her life.

    A great sin of the Catholic church is their stand against birth control.
    I know of many state funded insurances that do not cover birth control, but they do Viagra.
    Medicaid does not cover abortion despit some states that won't add to the grant when more children are born, despite the added difficulties of their work programs when infants are involved, despite no perfect birth control and so on.

    •  Melanoma is malignant at ALL stages. (0+ / 0-)

      Thus, to say "malignant melanoma" is somewhat redundant.  It is the other so called skin "cancers", like basal cell carcinoma, that do not become malignant until later stages.
