US Senator Boxer On Abortion & The Health Care Bill


"Why are women being singled out here? It's so unfair," Boxer said on the Senate floor Tuesday. "We don't tell men that if they want to ... buy insurance coverage through their pharmaceutical plan for Viagra that they can't do it."
Boxer was weighing in against an amendment offered by Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., that would greatly restrict abortion services for women buying individual insurance through a new health care insurance exchange. Although the amendment was rejected in a 54-45 vote, it was not the last word on the issue.


You can read the rest here.

Some questions:
-Is this a legitimate argument?
-Is abortion really a woman's right?
-Does the child/embroyo/fetus have rights? If so, who is to defend them?
-How do you define abortion?
-Is this an abortion, or is this? ***GRAPHIC WARNING***
-Why do you think she changed her position after years on the other side?
