Al Franken & Choice

with 2 comments

From Al Franken’s speech to NARAL:

“Because the forces on the other side are persistent, single-minded, and even violent. A woman’s right to choose is never fully won. It must be won anew every day, every year, every Congress, and every generation.”

You know what I like about this speech? There’s no equivocation. There’s no suggestion that compromise is necessary (Obama, are you listening?) There’s only the absolute understanding that abortion must remain legal, and choice must be protected. There is freedom to choose, or there is not.

It really is that simple.

Maybe I’ll move to Minnesota so I can vote for him next time around.

(thanks to Mom’sTFH for calling my attention to the speech)
