Real Time: The Panel Gets Real On The Topic Of Abortion

[media id=6659] The Real Time Oct. 24, 2008 panel weighs in on McCain's awful comments about abortion during the debate. Comedian Carol Liefer raises

The Real Time Oct. 24, 2008 panel weighs in on McCain's awful comments about abortion during the debate. Comedian Carol Liefer raises some great points about the term "partial birth abortion" being something made up by the religious right to further their agenda of overturning Roe V Wade. It's actually a "late term abortion." And that abortion staying legal in this country is hanging on by a thread.

Apparently Matt Dowd hasn't been to any Palin rallies lately if he thinks no one cares about this issue any more. It will always be a huge money maker for the James Dobson wing of the Republican party. The money quote:

"If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament."

McCain gets a "zero" rating from NARAL and Planned Parenthood.
