[Women Against McCain Palin]

I cannot even fathom the courage it must have taken to volunteer to be in this ad. Whatever her choice was, I hope she was able to make it with the support of her doctors and loved ones. (There's a second, equally moving ad at Women Against McCain Palin featuring her(?) mother.)

I saw that on TV. That certainly took courage on her part.

That is--remarkable. Anyone who can see that and not be moved has neither heart nor brain. Both of those women are true role models.

Wow. That woman has courage. I'm glad she did this. It's something that needs to be said and it's really powerful coming from one of the victims who would be forced into doing it because of their disgusting policies.

I spoke to a woman yesterday who would have insisted that girl carry the baby to term. It was a long conversation, and the most depressing one I've had since I've been making political calls.

I don't think I could have kept it together for such a conversation. Because to me, forcing a woman (or a child, in too many cases) in such a situation to carry a pregnancy to term against her will is just a continuation of the rape itself.

Good for you, though, for making calls and having that conversation.

Damn it. I wish for a time when speaking about being assaulted doesn't take courage. There is nothing to be ashamed about! I don't care if you're what you're wearing,how loaded you are et al, you have the right to not be raped,murdered,assaulted_whatever.....
