TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie was the last of 14 Republican presidential contenders to publicly support a federal proposal to ban abortions after 20 weeks. Christie, who’s mulling a White House bid, issued a statement Monday supporting a ban on abortions after five months of pregnancy. It came shortly after a national anti-abortion group called the…

    I still think a doctor and their patient should be the people making these decisions.

      That’s what I tell people when they bring it up–bottom line is that it is none of our damn business whether a woman chooses to carry a fetus to term or not, nor is it any of our business how she got pregnant. Abortions should be available at any hospital that receives public funding.

      Conservatives think you need THEIR permission.

    Pain-capable is a load of bullshit. The consensus from reputable medical scientist is 27 weeks and even that is stretching it. It’s yet another attempt to force a religious agenda through a manipulation of the truth. But then Christie wouldn’t know the truth if it bit him in the ass.

    “If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament”

    Florynce Rae “Flo” Kennedy

    Never get tired of that one.

      I like to toss that one out now and again, too. It’s a classic because it’s true. Having seen how things were before abortion was legal, it is especially disgusting to see that we are so close to women losing the right to control their own bodies again/still. Of course rich frat boys won’t have any problem getting safe abortions for their girlfriends. And seeing how much the GOPTP hates poor people, and poor women and children in particular, why on earth do they want to force more of them to be created?

        They need to have legal slaves so they figure if we force poor women to have babies and kill minimum wage we will then have legal slaves.

          It’s happening.

          Pregnant garment workers on Saipan are forced to have abortions to keep their jobs.

          A Senate subcommittee on Tuesday heard testimony that there may be what amounts to a Chinese or Korean labor camp on American territory.

          On the Pacific island of Saipan, tens of thousands of workers churn out clothes each year for big American clothing companies, including The Gap and Ralph Lauren.

            Wish I could say I am shocked.

    Why don’t GOP zombie candidates ever have any original ideas that are Constitutionally legal? A: Placating headless zombie voters requires belief in repubs Zombie Apocalypse!

    I see he’s going after the women’s voting block…

    GOP = the forced birth party.

    LOL! If Christie is planning to run for president, beware of the big stampede of women, falling over each other, getting to the polls to cast their votes for him.

    It’s the beginning of the GOP primaries and it’s time to play “Panderama!”
