All of these people oppose allowing rape victims to choose abortion. These are not the fringe lunatics of the Republican party. They are the leaders. They are THE FAR WRONG. And I'd be willing to bet if their wives, daughters or sisters were raped & got pregnant, especially by a person of color or Muslim, they'd find a nice, expensive private doctor to take care of it for them.
On this day, Feb 28, 1854, the United States Republican Party is founded by anti-slavery expansion activists (ex-Whigs, ex-Free Soilers, and modernizers). It is commonly called GOP, standing for Grand Old Party. Abraham Lincoln was the country's first Republican President, whose term was 1861-1865.
Barry Goldwater...."Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them."
