Dear Senator McCain,
Last night in the debate you said:
So, Senator McCain, what I want to know is:
How do you reconcile this with your stand against a woman's right to choose?
Do you not consider women part of families?
Or do you think women are not capable of making decisions between themselves and their doctors?
providing information about contraceptives? We keep giving men more
ability to produce babies. Shouldn't we be giving women the right not
to have those babies? And having their health insurance pay for contraceptives just as it pays for Viagra?
I haven't seen anything in the media about this. I know it's not the most important issue facing the country at this time (women's issues are never the most important). But I think it speaks to your judgment when you can blithely make a statement without considering all of its implications. Women want to know what you really mean when you say you want families to make decisions together with their doctors.
