Shocking Nixon Tapes Revelation!

When more than 150 hours of tape and tens of thousands of pages of material from the Nixon administration was made public by the US National Archives, it was revealed that:
... when the Supreme Court struck down state criminal abortion laws in Roe v. Wade, President Richard M. Nixon made no public statement. But privately, newly released tapes reveal, he expressed ambivalence. Nixon worried that greater access to abortions would foster “permissiveness,” and said that “it breaks the family.” But he also saw a need for abortion in some cases, such as interracial pregnancies. “There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,” he told an aide, before adding: “Or a rape.”
Who knew that Richard Nixon's opinion on the issue of abortion was as "progressive" as Gordie Canuck's?

Snerk. Gordie makes me tired. The blogging one, not the toddler in my home. He makes me tired, too, but in a good way.

Gordie must just be trying to get some attention to that blog of his. Doesn't look like he gets too much.

But there are a few regressive Progressives at PB, one is on your blogroll as a matter of fact.

He said (always a he) in an IM, that if C-484 and the like when thru and if the Cons got a majority, that women should just hold their legs closed for a few years. He was actually hoping for a majority too. As an learning experience doncha know.
If it had been men directly affected he would not have been nearly as cavalier we can only assume..:)
Serious issues with those supposedly on our side here....
