Response to H2O Man (Original post)

28. Excellent post. But that's a big leap from women's rights to not accepting "anti-choice."

The real choice is not between anti-choice and pro-choice. The real choice in some districts is anti-choice Democrat who votes for Democratic Party bills most of the time vs an anti-choice Republican who votes against Democratic Party bills most of the time.

The Dem Party bills affect women often more than men, like health insurance, equal wages, equal rights bills, etc.

To allow a Republican to get that district is ironically voting against women in many ways. That is, in my view, an anti-women's rights move...to take an ideological stand and disregarding the real effect of that stand on the group one professes to be concerned about.
