CPAC Speakers Continue Bait and Switch
The Conservative Political Conference (CPAC) - with its many anti-choice speakers and attendees - concluded its sessions over the weekend.
We find it ironic that this year's speakers, who have been outspoken about their extreme anti-choice agendas in the past, kept remarkably quiet about their goals to chip away at a woman's right to choose.
This just goes to show how these anti-choice politicians are masters of the bait and switch. They campaign to be elected to Congress by focusing on job creation and improving the economy, but once they're elected, they turn around and wage a War on Women.
Of course there were a few politicians at CPAC who just couldn't help themselves when it came to declaring their anti-choice agenda.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) promoted his anti-choice views while speaking to conference attendees, saying that it's "an absolute fact that life begins at conception."
Former governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee also couldn't resist attacking choice through the screening of an anti-choice film he helped produce. One anti-choice moderator even called NARAL Pro-Choice America "the enemy" during a panel discussion calling for the overturn of Roe v. Wade.
At least one CPAC speaker has it figured out. Republican strategist Dick Morris told his anti-choice peers that overturning Roe v. Wade is "a case we're never going to win."
For once we actually agree! Morris stated what we've known all along - most Americans do not want to see Roe v. Wade overturned.
These anti-choice politicians should wise up and focus on their campaign promises instead of chipping away at women's freedom and privacy. Because more often than not, when voters get the chance to weigh in on extreme anti-choice measures in their states, they decisively shut them down.
