Let’s be clear: The only choice Democrats support is the choice to terminate a pregnancy. When it comes to choosing how to spend your own money, with whom you wish to associate, and what you can say, however, Democrats have a simple injunction for women: To the union hall with you. -Matt Patterson

"So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief," said Rep. Jim Boyd. "If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?”
"We believe that any decision that's made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician," said Planned Parenthood lobbyist Snow.
