PHILADELPHIA - Illyse Hogue wanted a family, but when she found out she was pregnant, it was the wrong time.
So, the president of the National Abortion Rights Action League said proudly from the stage of the Democratic National Convention that she had an abortion at a clinic.
The crowd cheered.
Hogue says that now she's married and has two children. But sad enough for her first child, he or she was conceived at the "wrong time" - an inconvenient time.
As the abortion rights movement becomes stronger and bolder in their arguments for "women's choice of what to do with her own body," their arguments are more and more provocative. Now, they are no longer arguing to save the life of the mother, to protect the health of the mother. Now, it's because the pregnancy was at an inconvenient time. And already they're arguing for abortion if the child's sex is not the preferred choice.
And they are now demanding that abortions cost them nothing out-of-pocket, and that taxpayers pay for them.
