Hillary softening abortion stance!

Hillary Clinton sent Bush a letter encouraging him to address the issue of forced abortions during his upcoming visit to China! To my knowledge, this is the first time a high-profile abortion advocate has even recognized that these forced abortions are taking place, much less spoken out against them. Wow!

This is, of course, good news for the women of China, since a united prolfe/prochoice front will bring to bear enough pressure to at least soften China's draconian campaign against second children. But it's bad news for women and children in the US, since a softening of her stand on abortion will make Hillary more palatable to voters in the US. Hillary's proposed national health care plan would have effectively forced abortion of disabled children, since it would have made it illegal to provide medical care to those who were not aborted.
