For the "health" of the mother

Well, if there were any pro-choice women in America who were still considering voting for McCain, he probably lost virtually every one of their votes with his startlingly insensitive, demeaning, and sarcastic dismissal of the need to take into account the health of the mother when considering abortion restrictions.

Am I mistaken or did McCain openly mock women's health and their competency to make these types of decisions as simply a manipulative tool of the pro-choice movement rather than as a legitimate concern for women for whom a pregnancy could be life-threatening?

Sarah Palin must be so proud right now.
