And That’s What It’s All About…

Is abortion about a woman’s right to choose? Not hardly. As Jill Stanek points out, Rolling Stone tipped the male pro-choice hand in a ham-handed attack on Fred Thompson:

It’s easy to be “pro-life” when you’re a settled father and family man. It’s another thing altogether to oppose abortion in absolute terms when you’re a Hollywood actor playing the field and you face the prospect of unintentionally bringing a child into the world with your latest conquest.

Not everyone wants to live out their own personal Knocked Up script. When it was relevant to him, Fred Thompson respected that choice.

So it seems to be about the man’s choice for comfort, not the woman’s choice as pro-Choicers frequently howl.
