      earth. You abortion rights people seem to be saying:

      -War is okay
      -Racism is okay
      -Union busting is okay
      -Dishonesty is okay
      -Ending the rule of law is okay


      Well for some of us Abortion rights is one small issue in the midst of a big mess of other issues. Clinton loses on every single other issue. She has one issue and one demographic: abortions and white women.

      And for abortions and white women we are supposed to throw under the bus:

      -The poor
      -Future generations
      -The third world
      -The working class
      etc. etc. etc.

      Well fuck that, if it comes time to choose, no, abortion is not worth fighting for if it comes down to choosing between the whole pile of things in column (A) and "abortion rights" alone, all by itself in column (B).

      Maybe that's a non-white-woman perspective, but then I'm not white and I'm not a woman, so sue me. You want us along? Figure out a way to get someone into the nomination that we can support.

      •  Wow. (0+ / 0-)

        Because the right to choose - and other SCOTUS jurisprudence like Brown v. Board, say - only benefits white women, right?

        Eh, why do I even bother?
