Planned Parenthood Party Like a Rock Star! (and Mikal Watts Pro-Life Stance)

(L to R) "Old Elvis" Rick Cofer, deputy campaign manager for Rick Noriega for Texas, and "Asian Elvis" Ramey Ko, chairman for Asian Americans for Obama and volunteer for Rick Noriega, (and unknown) all appear as Elvises for the annual "Party like a Rock Star" Planned Parenthood fundraiser on Saturday held this year at the House of Dereon.

This is in sharp contrast to democratic primary challenger and millionaire San Antonio trial lawyer Mikal Watts, who probably wouldn't only avoid such events, but even told R.G. Ratcliffe “I personally have the view: I hold the pro-life position with three exceptions: one for rape, one for incest, one for the life of the mother.”

Let's see how these compare with others' views from across the political spectrum...

George W. Bush from CNS News: "Bush has clearly stated, on several occasions, that the circumstances when abortion should be allowed are limited to protect the life of the mother, rape or incest."

John McCain on Meet The Press: McCain said he had “come to the conclusion that the exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother are legitimate exceptions” to an outright ban on abortions.

Mitt Romney from "Governor Romney has declared that he is pro-life with exceptions for rape, incest, and to save the life of the mother. This position is identical to that of President George W. Bush, the most pro-life president we’ve ever had."

Rudy Giuliani from MediaMatters: "Giuliani's position is that he would not change current law on abortion funding, which prohibits federal funding except in cases of incest, rape, or life endangerment."

I could go on, but I think you get the point. Watts holds the same pro-life position as Bush, McCain, Romney, and Giuliani. We've discovered his PAC making contributions to republican candidates. What else are you hiding Mike?

ADDITION: I almost forgot..
John Cornyn and Greg Abbott from Texas Eagle Forum: "John Cornyn, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, and Judge Greg Abbott, Republican candidate for Texas Attorney General, recently rescinded their opposition to abortion under all circumstances. Cornyn now justifies abortion in cases of rape, incest and to save the life of the mother, while Abbott says consideration should be given to protect a woman's life."

And... thre you have it.

I am really sorry to read that you are taking something as horrible as the murder of preborn babies and having a "fun" time supporting it. If Texas wants a senator in 2008 who values all human beings and will work to protect all people -- both born and preborn -- please vote for Larry Kilgore in the March primary.

Thank you,

angela, planned parenthood does more then "kill babies". It provides health services to those with no health insurance.

You can never stop abortions, teen sex, or premarital sex.

thank you planned parenthood.

Dear Myra,

Please know that I am a certified medical assistant and many physicians provide health services to patients without health insurance! Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger who believed in eugenics!!! Please do a little more research before you applaud such a dubious organization. Thank you to those brave souls who picket Planned Parenthood and persuade patrons to go elsewhere for health care.
