To my "pro-choice" Republican friends.  

Don't delude yourself.  If you vote for Romney/Ryan, you're voting to end legal abortion in this country.  Romney chose Ryan for a reason. Ryan is an anti-abortion absolutist and zealot.

You say you may be voting for Romney/Ryan because of their economic policies, even though they won't say exactly what they are and his advisors are the same people that got us into this economic mess under Bush.  

Then, if Romney/Ryan wins, you need to look me clearly in the eye and say that you are willing for your daughters and granddaughters to not have access to legal abortion.  That you are willing for your sons to forego college and be trapped in a marriage resulting from an unintended pregnancy.  That you are willing for more and more babies to be born into poverty.  

You don't get to walk away clean because you say you disagree with Romney/Ryan on their extremist anti-abortion positions. You will be complicity agreeing with their positions because a vote for Romney/Ryan will give them the power to take away women's fundamental right to an abortion.

If they are elected, don't come to me again for help with your abortion, your wife's abortion, your daughter's abortion, or your son's girlfriend's abortion.

I may have to look you clearly in the eye and shed a tear for your self induced misfortune.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
