    Being a righty I understand why you refuse to acknowledge that O'Malley was half right. You have to buy into the idea that PP is from the debil hiself. You guys are going to believe whatever you're told by the right wing media. I have almost given up reasoning with you guys on this issue. You refuse to be reasonable. I'm like, whatevah......

    But the Republicans better be careful. Lots of women do vote. And more of them agree with my view of stuff like this than your view.

    Since PP doesn't do mammograms at all, that's more than half incorrect. But there's the problem with the ratings that so called fact checkers use. Since they are subjective as opposed to objective, fact checkers can rationalize their way into whatever rating they want. Then later on they can say something like "We rated Republicans 4 bullshits 75% of the time."

    Do they? Because women support things like late term abortion bans or parental consent laws. In fact, in polls more women call themselves pro life than pro choice.

    They were factually correct if you understand nuance and stuff.

    There is no amount of nuance that makes a breast exam magically become a mammogram. One uses x-rays, the other doesn't.

    Sigh...the breast exam is used an indicator of potential breast cancer, which is why there are breast exams in the first place. If they feel lumps then they are referred for a mammogram. The two go together hand in hand.

    In fact, in polls more women call themselves pro life than pro choice.
    Not true anymore..

    So does apple pie and vanilla ice cream. That doesn't make them the same thing.



    I wish that would have included numbers for people who self identify as pro life.
