Another reason why I do not want Carly Fiorina to win!

by Karen Topakian

Carly Fiorina wants to be our next Senator. Representing all of California. Replacing Senator Barbara Boxer.

Here’s one reason why I think it’s a terrible idea.

Carly Fiorina said in an interview with the New York Times Magazine that she is opposed to abortion except in the case of incest, rape and danger to a mother’s life. She’s also opposed to publicly financed abortions of any kind. Wanna know why?  I thought you would.

Because she and her husband Frank were unsuccessful at conceiving. Her unsuccessful efforts were “a reminder that life is a precious gift and not everyone is given that gift.”

Yup. You heard it correctly. Because she couldn’t get pregnant she wants every other woman in the country to give birth.Whether they want to or not.

I forgot to add that when her mother-in-law was pregnant with her husband Frank, she was told that her health was in jeopardy and was encouraged to have an abortion. Her mother-in-law chose not to and survived. “Frank turned out to be the joy of her life, and of my life.”

Carly’s second reason for making women endure a pregnancy that they may not want. Because her mother-in-law chose not to terminate her pregnancy even though her own health was at risk.

Is this someone we want making policy decisions that effect our lives? And our reproductive organs? I don’t. Do you?
