For John, BLUF: . Nothing to see here; just move along.
Over at the Althouse blog is an item from Think Progress that the wife of Texas Governor Rick Perry, Anita Perry, says that women have "a right to choose". Governor Perry, who happens to be a Republican, is seen as Pro-Life.
This seems pretty stark, although the actual interview would seem a little more nuanced. Somewhere out there are those who oppose all abortions and those who would allow abortions in all cases, not just up to live birth, but beyond. The American People are somewhere in between. As usual, the comments are interesting. I liked this comment on diversity of opinion, with cooperation:
My wife as a pro choice ob/gyn and I am prolife. When she retires, she is going to volunteer in a clinic. We will carpool, because I will be protesting outside.Maybe we should encourage Governor Perry to push for abortion laws like those in Europe. Hat tip to the Althouse blog.
