Pro-Choice, Really?

Okay. I just read that John Edwards (former Senator running for pres) proposes under his universal health care plan that people will be forced to go to the doctor. “If you are going to be in the system, you can’t choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years,” he says. “You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are okay.”

Hmm. He’ll make mammograms mandatory, and presumably all sorts of other gyny things. I thought he thinks women have the right to choose what goes on with their bodies? I guess choosing to hack apart the baby in my womb’s okay, but choosing to forgo getting the boobs pressed not so okay.

    Perhaps his haircut got the best of him?
