When is a woman's right to choose going to include vaccination choice for herself and her family? Dan Olmsted was clear when he said AofA is agnostic politically. We are a non-profit and will never endorse a candidate or a political party. We write about how each party addresses vaccination safety and medical freedom and sometimes that seems as if we are praising or damning one side or the other. That said, we've asked time and again how both sides of the aisle miss the mark so wide when it comes to vaccination choice. The pro-life, most often Republican side of the aisle wants to protect unborn babies. But at day 1, the government knows best. The pro-choice, most often Democrat side of the aisle wants to allow a women to choose whether or not to carry her child to term, but her right to choice ceases the moment the baby is born.
I read a Tweet yesterday that brought back my frustration over this topic. Here is the verbiage from the politician's website. His or her name is irrelevant. See the disconnect?
[XYZ politician] will oppose any attempt by politicians to interfere in a woman’s right to make decisions about her own body. She will fight against any proposed legislation that would impose medically unnecessary restrictions on reproductive health care providers or limit the ability of a woman to make the best decision for her health with her doctor.
