Video: How ‘Pro-Choice’ Are Democrats?

Reason TV talked with Democratic delegates and supporters at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte and found that most were on board with the party’s strong pro-choice stance. But when pressed to talk about whether or not they were pro-choice in areas of human activity beyond abortion, delegates and supporters seemed less certain and, at times, outright hostile to the notion of increased choice.

  1. Do these stupid Dem Delegates even think out their answers before saying them, cause from the sound of it they are all ready to give up their Freedoms and Rights, and rely on a Nanny State.

    I know I'm going to be slammed for this but here goes.
    I am a pro-choice person. I believe a person has the right to make their own choices in every aspect of their lives. While I would never have an abortion (with very few exceptions i.e. baby very horribly deformed etc) what right do I have to force my opinion or beliefs on another. You must answer for your actions, not I.
    This pro-choice goes to all other aspects of life. I am pro-choice that you have the right to choose what to eat, drink and do. Smoke and drink if you want.
    Same principle applies with what is happening in New York. Bloomberg has banned Big Gulps, large popcorn as well as if a new mother will breast feed or not.
    If you want to control any aspect of another's life, then you must accept their control.
    I find it hypocritical for some to force their beliefs and opinions on others but hold tight in their hands the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
    Are we a free nation or aren't we? Government control or not?
    We must be very careful how we proceed or lose our rights as the last free nation.

    Before you really attack me, know this. I divorced my husband (a devout catholic) because he wanted me to abort our child stating we couldn't afford him. I raised him as a single mother without help.

    • Seeks, you are right, about both things. Everyone has the right to CHOOSE their own path in life. And you are also right about who will give an account for their actions and deeds here on earth, we each will stand before God and answer to Him, alone.
      But one thing here, sometimes if people refuse to make the proper choice, there are laws to help them “decide”. Abortion isn’t the answer to every unwanted pregnancy, some should be legal for health reasons, I beleive. But this late term abortion isn’t right, any way you look at it. And this business of “failed aborttons” where the baby is born, fully formed, and alive, and this poor baby is put in a room with the garbage and trash, left there to die. This is wrong in every level that there is.

      How is it anyone’s “choice” to murder these babies, and I do mean murder, because if this child who was born fully formed, and there is nothing wrong with it, then how can anyone CONDONE this “allowing it to die” as if it were nothing at all or alive? This is one thing I truly have a huge problem with. I think also, that the late term abortions should not be legal! But, I do not think that calling all women who choose to do this names………..I am seriously confused about the whole issue. I have my own reasons for this confusion too. I wish we could talk, because you sound like a fair person to speak to on this subject. Ed has my email address, if you should decide to speak to me. This subject of abortion is a really touchy subject with most people, and I do not talk to anyone about it anymore. I beleive it’s personal and should be a very personal decision, not the public one that this interferring government has made it into. Congratulations to you on raising your son on your own though. A son is a wonderful thing to have, I have two sons and I would not trade the experience of raising them for all the gold in the world! And, I am glad I had them, even as difficult as each pregnancy was! And it was awful, both times. my sons were under 3 pounds at birth……….I’d love to hear from you.

        Oh, you'll get no argument from me on late term abortions. I think there should be a cut off. It IS murder if the baby is born alive and viable to allow it to die.
        I'd rather talk in private further with you on this matter. I think we do feel the same on this issue.
        I do feel for the women who feel this is her only option.
        Some times tho, it should be an option. What about a baby being born so deformed it just "exists". Wouldn't it be kinder and more "humane" to prevent it's short life filled with pain and anguish? I can speak about living with pain. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. We at least afford animals that kindness. Should a human be any different?
        Ed also has my email. Lets both attack him and tell him to hook us up. lol.
        Wow gratz on the sons! They are a God send. 3 pounds? I KNOW you went through a lot. My brother was just over 2 #s. My son was having surgery at 6 months.

  3. Got it Seeks, and will write soon. Talking to someone on this issue, and to a woman with a son will be a wonderful blessing! I am a very private person, no matter what my rants on this site say most of the time! LOL! I do get royally upset with some of the articles, especially the one about Mooshelle lying her fat ass off about how much The Evil One “cares about this country and it’s people. I tend to write what I feel, I guess, what more of those in the public eye should do, tell it like it is, and stop with the sugar coating everything. That is truly disgusting, when lied to by those who know good and very well how things really are, and just how evil those who are now in office are. There is no point at all in being “nice” anymore, because that time is past, way in the past, like back in 2008, when this peice of black trash started “RULING” by his “executive orders”, and hiding behind “executive privilages” as has been the case since the beginning of this last four years of hell for the American people. Stop playing footsie with those who are out to ruin this nation, and start playing this GAME TO WIN! Like a football team who wants to win the Super Bowl, play FOR KEEPS! Anyhow, will email you today sometime. Ed sent the address. Thanks.
