Married, Republican Pro-Life Politician Allegedly Asked His Pregnant Mistress to Get an Abortion
It was this sort of thing that drove me from the Republican Party – the worship of family values but the failure to live up to them. Though (caveat or disclaimer!) I have to say the GOP at least has standards in the first place, which is a step above the liberal Democrats, who advocate hedonism.
….But the truth is that men benefit from the easy availability of abortion at least as much — if not more — than women.
Which is one reason the recently departed Hugh Hefner was such a big proponent. Playboy published its first article supporting the legalization of abortion in 1965 and even listed the numbers of hotlines where women could obtain them — even before Roe v. Wade.
The audience for this information was clearly not women who were reading Playboy articles but men who had, as they used to say, gotten women in trouble.
