To Choose What — Anything She Wants?
I was happy to hear in Al Gore’s acceptance speech at the Democrat National Convention that he reaffirmed his commitment to a woman’s right to choose.
That must mean he supports her right to choose the best school for her kids and get her hard-earned tax dollars back, in the form of vouchers, to pay for it.
It must mean he supports a woman’s right to choose to keep and bear arms to protect herself and her family.
It must mean he supports a woman’s right to choose to have children even though she has been rendered infertile by a botched abortion.
It must mean he supports a woman’s right to choose to raise her child with values and a base of moral absolutes that any civilized society embraces. And the right to choose to do this without being labeled with pejoratives like religious-right, homophobic, intolerant, and extremist.
So I applaud Al Gore for acknowledging, before the nation, that he supports a woman’s right to choose . .. not just to kill her unborn child . . . but to nurture, educate, and support those children who are living. I am sure that is what he meant . . . because politicians can’t afford to be called hypocrites in an election year. This is Nina May for the Renaissance Women.
