McCain: What is this "health" you women speak of?

"Senator John McCain’s health plan would drastically restructure America’s health care system, with especially devastating effects on women."

- Worse for Women report

Tonight, McCain betlittled concerns about protecting the health of the mother when considering a late term abortion. He even put air quotes around the word "health" twice, and said that pro-abortion forces are trying to stretch the word health to mean "just about anything."

The "just about anything" the Republican base knows he meant was that the mental health of the mother doesn't count.

It's also interesting that immediately after Obama said no-one is pro-abortion, McCain referred to the "pro-abortion movement."

You nailed it. It was an utter dismissal of psychological reasons that may come into play in some cases that make abortion the correct choice. And I do detest and always correct the "pro-abortion" phrase. It is a deliberate code for baby killer, and it seems McCain has gone completely over to the dark side in his sad attempt to curry favor with the wingnut right.
