    Gee, there are all these women Republicans doing cameos yet the GOP wants to ban abortions for rape or incest and do away with contraception. Listen–if you do not support abortion you have the right not to have an abortion. However, you should not impose this believe on those who do not agree wtih you. Very simple. It is a woman's choice she makes with her doctor.
