I'm sure there are more annoying people in the world than Sen. Barbara Boxer but right now I can't think of one. Here, at a Planned Parenthood event, she diagnoses what's wrong with conservative men:
“There is a war against women, and Romney and Ryan — if they are elected — would become its top generals,” Boxer said calling Akin’s comments a “direct outgrowth” of the extreme positions on abortion held by Republicans.Not sick, in her world, is the lucrative, ongoing exploitation of women and mass-slaughter of children by the abortion industry, in which her pals at Planned Parenthood lead the way. Yes, there is a sickness out there all right.
“Where’s the outrage by Mitt Romney?” Boxer asked, “There is a sickness out there in the Republican Party, and I’m not kidding. Maybe they don’t like their moms or their first wives; I don’t know what it is.”
More of her speech here. Boxer and company are busily spinning Akin's blunder as proof that all pro-life men are pro-rape or something. I don't see how that's going to work. Do they really want to make this election about abortion? Because America isn't nearly as "pro-choice" as Barack Obama, who, lest we forget, wants to keep our options open all the way through to the fourth trimester:
As I understand it, this puts the burden on the attending physician who has determined, since they were performing this procedure, that, in fact, this is a nonviable fetus; that if that fetus, or child - however way you want to describe it - is now outside the mother's womb and the doctor continues to think that it's nonviable but there's, let's say, movement or some indication that, in fact, they're not just coming out limp and dead, that, in fact, they would then have to call a second physician to monitor and check off and make sure that this is not a live child that could be saved.
