BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (Reuters) - Memo to disappointed women supporters of Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton: Republican John McCain wants your vote.I'll say it right now. Brittany Ford, 19, from Columbus Ohio is a total asshole. She is willing to risk my reproductive freedom and the freedom of my daughter out of spite for her practically the same, policy-wise candidate not winning.
McCain, the senator from Arizona who has wrapped up his party's White House nomination, moved on Wednesday to woo women and other Clinton backers whose disappointment over her defeat by Illinois Sen. Barack Obama could cause them to switch teams.
..."I'm disappointed that Hillary didn't make it, being a female," said Brittany Ford, 19, a black student from Columbus, Ohio. She said she's now looking at McCain, adding simply: "I don't care for Obama."
Brittany Ford is willing to risk going back to this:
Almost any implement you can imagine had been and was used to start an abortion — darning needles, crochet hooks, cut-glass salt shakers, soda bottles, sometimes intact, sometimes with the top broken off.Brittany Ford is okay with women returning to a status of second-class citizens when President McCain's appointments to the Supreme Court (who would remain on the bench for decades) overturn Roe v. Wade. Out of spite for Obama, she is willing to create a situation where it might be my daughter some day lying on that table with her intestines hanging out of her.
Another method that I did not encounter, but heard about from colleagues in other hospitals, was a soap solution forced through the cervical canal with a syringe. This could cause almost immediate death if a bubble in the solution entered a blood vessel and was transported to the heart.
The worst case I saw, and one I hope no one else will ever have to face, was that of a nurse who was admitted with what looked like a partly delivered umbilical cord. Yet as soon as we examined her, we realized that what we thought was the cord was in fact part of her intestine, which had been hooked and torn by whatever implement had been used in the abortion. It took six hours of surgery to remove the infected uterus and ovaries and repair the part of the bowel that was still functional.
To any Clinton supporter who is now considering a vote for McCain because they're mad at Obama: fuck you. Die in a fire. Etc, etc.
