The right to choose

I strongly suggest you watch this interview. Rachel Maddow talks with Dr. Melissa Harris-Lacewell (pictured here) of Princeton University about the startling fact that we have 5 female Republican candidates for US Senate this year who are running on a platform of no abortions ever, for anyone, even in cases of rape or incest.  Harris-Lacewell points out that unfortunately rape and incest are still prevalent in this country.  The candidacies of these women come on the heels of Sarah Palin’s.  All of this bears watching. (The Harris-Lacewell part of the show starts at the 8 minute mark.)  Here’s the link:
