3. They get abortions for the same reasons as non-repugs do

This is one of the best articles I've ever read.

Abortion is a highly personal decision that many women are sure they'll never have to think about until they're suddenly faced with an unexpected pregnancy. But this can happen to anyone, including women who are strongly anti-choice. So what does an anti-choice woman do when she experiences an unwanted pregnancy herself? Often, she will grin and bear it, so to speak, but frequently, she opts for the solution she would deny to other women -- abortion.

In the spring of 2000, I collected the following anecdotes directly from abortion doctors and other clinic staff in North America, Australia, and Europe. The stories are presented in the providers' own words, with minor editing for grammar, clarity, and brevity. Names have been omitted to protect privacy.


Several stories told by doctors and clinical people follow. Anti-choicers may change their views. They may believe that their abortion is the "good" kind or her reasons are the only "good" reasons. They may wrestle with the hypocrisy. They may even be back out front the next day, protesting and shouting at women entering for medical care.

But they get abortions. Just ask representatives Tim Murphy and Scott DesJarlais.
