Dems ditching the women: this ain't no new thing

I feel a little taken for

I feel a little taken for granted by the Democrats. I know we’re supposed to be big tent but if pro-lifers are Democrats, then I’m not sure I am. To me, it’s a fundamental principle that the state cannot force me to bear a child against my will.

Have you noticed that Democrats have no clue how to talk about this issue? They don’t even bother explaining WHY we should all be pro-choice. For the most part, they meekly state their position and then change the subject. Could they at least talk about how we cannot afford to criminalize something that happens over 1 million times a year in this country? That women will go to jail, will DIE because people are self-righteously idealistic on this issue? That we have a shortage of ob-gyns in this country and cannot afford to put them in prison either? That pro-life is just a fucking stupid position to take?

I’m not donating to any more Democrats until they start fighting for me. From now on, I’m donating and volunteering exclusively to my "pet issues" because women’s rights and abortion rights aren’t the only issues they’re getting soft on. And I’m going to tell people why I no longer trust the Dems. They want my support, they are going to have to earn it.
