Thursday Big Blue Smurf Blogging: What They Said
Posted by Jill | 5:37 AM
Today's honoree: Amanda Marcotte, for her accurate analogy of the anti-choice movement to a medieval witch hunt.

Money quote:
Anyone who thinks breast cancer can be neatly cordoned off from this growing circle of hate for all things women's health care is fooling themselves. That's not how witch hunts work. The fear here is not about fetuses or babies per se, but a deep-set fear of female sexuality. Already anti-choicers have scooped breast cancer under the umbrella "abortion", claiming that abortion causes breast cancer. (It doesn't.)  Komen would rather side with people who see breast cancer as god's judgment on you for having an abortion rather than side with people support comprehensive health care for women.

My wife had breast cancer but never had an abortion. Oh for Chrissakes, why am I even bothering to to try to respond to their ignorant filth.
