John McCain's Attack on Women

As I was writing my list of debate words and phrases, I left out my new character, "Jane The Pregnant" for a reason. We need to talk about how John McCain hates women's freedoms :

psst! @JohnMcCain cares more about #JoeThePlumpber than #JaneThePregnant. pass it on. #debate08psst!

One of the most poignant moments of last night's debate was the discussion over abortion and the composition of the Supreme Court. I hate to say, but it took my breath away.

I was shocked at the callousness and cruelty exhibit John McCain exhibited towards women. This is not just a man that thinks that women have too many freedoms. He basically said that the life of a women was worthless compared to the viability of a fetus and to say any to the contrary was to be an extremist primed for his contempt. That's the extreme pro-abortion position, quote, "health", said John McCain as he said derisively about the need to save a woman's life.

It was a breath-taking moment that left me not just confounded but chilled to the bone.

John McCain, after defending "Joe The Plumber" throughout all the debate, not only was belligerent about women's right to choose. He feels it is appropriate to invoke "state rights" with their laws of slavery's past because he believes women are fickle about the reasons they want to terminate a pregnancy.
