In response to: 'The GOP Wants to Take Women Back to the Back Alley'

The real issue with abortion is this - is the baby inside the mother's womb a human who possesses human rights, and if so when do we grant them? The claim that mothers can do with their bodies what they want fails to acknowledge the life of the child inside. I ask you this one simple question - can you tell me at what point you would grant human rights onto unborn children? Do you grant the status of human with full human rights only after one week of life outside the mother's womb? One day? One hour? Five minutes? How about five minutes before birth? One day before? One week before? One month before? Three months before? Four months before? Six months before? Please tell me when.

This is getting ridiculous.

First, the DNC turns into a giant pro-choice rally. Now, is out with a disgusting, fear-mongering attack ad about how the GOP will take women back to the era of back-alley abortions. Not only is it utterly offensive and completely off-point from voters' concerns, it conflates Mitt Romney's personal position on the issue with the GOP platform, so it's misleading, too. 

Nevermind the moral debate about abortion -- although you can find a great perspective on the pro-life cause here --...
