Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Democrats pledge support for wide access to abortion

WASHINGTON (Chicago Tribune) - Elizabeth Edwards said Tuesday that her husband's health-care plan would provide insurance coverage of abortion.

Speaking on behalf of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards before the family planning and abortion-rights group Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Edwards lauded her husband's health-care proposal as "a true universal health-care plan" that would cover "all reproductive health services, including pregnancy termination," referring to abortion.

This is ridiculous!! I cannot believe that a woman of all people would support this.. You must be heartless to not give a child its right to be born! A child when inside and out of your body up until a certain age depend on the mother and they are not toys that can be replaced nor are they disposable.. this is a form of murder in my eyes.. I could never imagine a woman doing this to her own flesh and blood.. I hope that this plan also covers women who cannot get pregnant all the cost to help out for fertility treatments in every way possible!! if you going to pass a universal health plan that you can murder your child I sure as hell hope they pass a universal healthcare that will help pay for women to have a child who cannot naturally get pregnant or carry a baby on there own! its only equally fair!

Well I think it's murder. I'm sorry but they are taking someone elses life into their own hands!! I don't care what people say but by the time you find out you're pregnant, that baby has a heartbeat! That's human enough for me! DAMN DEMOCRATS!

What's the difference between having an abortion and in vitro fertilization?
Both are forms of "playing God", so to speak. If one cannot get pregnant "naturally" then maybe God doesn't want them to procreate at all. I personally do not care if my neighbor gets pregnant through in vitro fertilization or has an abortion...either way it is none of my DAMN business!

I personally, cannot understand people who want to make this medical procedure illegal. Legal abortions are NOT mandatory abortions. If you are opposed to abortion, then do not have one and encourage others not to as well. But the government certainly has no place to tell a woman who is 9 weeks pregnant that she has to remain pregnant for 9 months. It is as simple as that.
