Pro-choice Republicans go public
Washington Post, by Victoria Toensing

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/30/2012 12:24:06 PM

I am a pro-choice Republican. We are not an endangered species. Since the Republican Party declared itself pro-life, most of us have been in the closet. I appreciate that both viewpoints are sincerely held: Pro-choicers believe that the government should not intrude in such a private decision; pro-lifers believe that life begins at conception. I have supported each. Raised Catholic, I accepted the church’s doctrine that abortion was morally wrong. This was before Roe v. Wade, so in many states abortion was also illegal. A personal experience changed my view. At 28, pregnant with my third child,

Comments:
Why should there even be two parties? Every day there is another article from these good intentioned Republicans that suggest Republicans become more like Democrats. I was sorry to see this from the usually astute Ms. Toensing. I do agree that Mourdock and Aikin were disasters for our party and we lost two seats that were easily winnable.

So what should we make of the recent video showing a yawning "lump of fetal matter", Victoria?

Victoria, you may choose what you wish to do, but as for me and my house, we will follow God´s commandments. Thou shalt not kill.
I know this is a major sticking point for many. These babies are unborn and innocent and they deserve a body and a chance. Yes, many will die young and the parents will suffer in poverty, but I would rather have GOD on my side than any political party.

Forgive me Victoria, I have no personal experience of pregnancy to share. I am female, but I have never been pregnant.
Forgive me for wanting to stand up for the life of the most vulnerable in our society. Forgive me for believing that life begins at conception. Forgive me for seeing the incredible amount of scientific documentation that tells me that this is a living human being inside of its mother and accepting that information as truth.
Forgive me Victoria for believing it is better to err on the side of life than to err on the side of death.
Forgive me, my beliefs on this issue won´t change. I may change my party affiliation, I may change how I vote, but I won´t change my solidarity with the unborn child.
Forgive me.

The issue dingbat, is employing abortion as a method of birth control when selfish, self-centered females can´t control leg spread.

This has nothing to do with "C" sections.

Yet another socialist/Bow-Boy Republican infiltrator.

Maroon Victoria!!Pro-choice is an all inclusive term meaning "for choice". Your choice is between "for life" or "not-for life". Like all idiotic women who DO NOT understand English you think "pro-choice" is only a choice "for no life".

If we set aside ethics and deal with only pragmatic issues, being a pro lifer has still become wining issue in most parts of the country. Americans are increasingly pro life, including young adults.

In 1996, 56% were pro choice, 33% were pro life. In 2012, 50% (+17%)are pro life, and 41%(-15%) are pro choice.

The key is being sensible and articulate, and keeping the focus on value of human life.

She may have a point but she makes very weak arguments. She mentions the two candidates who in her opinion confused rape with sex and also brings up a GOPer who had affairs. What do sexist views on rape or cheating on your spouse have to do with the legality of abortion and should they be funded by taxpayers?

She doesn´t even have the courage to say the words "pro-abortion", if that is what you support, say so!

There are too many people out there who are unable to have babies of their own waiting for someone to gift them with one for me to think abortion is a choice. I like sex as much as the next person, but I didn´t find that out until I was married and didn´t have to depend on the government to help me pay for birth control or a baby. Guess I´ll have to stay on God´s side here and be against abortion.

If you define the process of actual abortion, it is the taking of human life from a mother´s womb and killing it. So it isn´t so much that the government should be telling women ´what to do with their bodies´ but they should be protecting life either inside or outside the womb. I am completely pro-choice. Women have the choice to either become pregnant or not. I understand the issue with rape and I would certainly not judge a woman for terminating a pregnancy caused by a rate - but it doesn´t change the definition of abortion. Victoria´s argument to me is not moral - it is political. God doesn´t care how many Republicans don´t get elected because they refuse to support abortion.

My first child is due any day now. A little girl. She is not yet born but I have already learned so much about her personality, habits, and even her temperament. She is definitely a unique individual soul. To say that she is a part of her mother´s body to "choose" to do with as she sees fit ignores this fact.

It is one of Government´s only obligations to protect the rights of those such as my unborn daughter who cannot protect themselves. Being pro-life is not about curbing the rights of women to choose what to do with their own bodies, it is about protecting the rights of the child, who is an individual human being separate and apart from the mother and father. To suggest otherwise is to dehumanize us all.

My daughter will be born into an evil world but I will cherish and love her and do all in my power to raise her to value the virtue of life and her individuality.

FTA " Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels wisely counseled Republican presidential candidates last year: “Declare a truce on social issues”

What a maroon she is. Republicans could announce today a truce on social issues. Does this idiot woman think the press will play along? Will the press quit asking republicans about their ´extremist´ views on abortion?* if we declare a truce, will the Dems stop their progression towards abortion at 9 months?

*an abortion extremist is one who wants a baby to live. In DC, it is not extreme to vote for infanticide 4 times.

There is, in my mind, a difference between being what is traditionally understood as being *pro-life* and being chauvinist - which I notice several posts here sure seem to be. I like what Bobby Jindal said: "There is no reason to demonize those who view this differently."

It suprises me how many people cannot imagine that good people - yes good people - can differ on when they believe life begins. I, personally, agree with CS Lewis: "You are not a body, you have a body. You do not have a soul, you are a soul."

I would add that I believe the soul is eternal.

Just another tool forwarding the inevitable separation of the Republican Party from its base; from thence to announce one day in the not-too-distant future that Democrats and Republicans are at one on all substantive issues. The only battle left will be whether it will be the Republican Democrats or the Democratic Republicans...against all the ´extremists´ out there. Clever.

If the issue is returned to the states, there won´t be universal, unrestricted abortion up to the moment of birth like we have now. Some states will outlaw abortion, some will place tight restrictions on abortions and some will have looser restrictions. A few may even be as unrestricted as Roe has been held to require. But most will not. Let the people decide. Women are a majority of voters, so they don´t need the Supreme Court to protect their rights.

Difficult subject, but I wouldn´t be bragging about supporting a party and a position that allows a baby that survives an abortion, to cry on an abortionist´s table for 2 days in the hope that it dies. Because Victoria couldn´t figure out contraception after having TWO kids, she was almost scared about killing her third. This is how low the level of responsibility has fallen. This isn´t about a deformed, doomed fetus or the result of rape or incest, or even the life of the mother. This is about a convenience for a woman who refuses to call it what it is.

Good luck #19. Your daughter will make you nuts, but more often light up your life. You will be a great mother. She is a lucky little girl. You will be a great team. I hope you have a good man to complete your family and bring what we bring as fathers and husbands who do their best.

The article says the abortion issue hasn´t helped the GOP. I can guarantee the author that my parents, who grew up in the Depression as working class Democrats and thought JFK was a demi-god, left the Democratic party when Jimmy Carter started pandering to the abortion lobby in the late 70s, and no one in my large family has voted for a Democrat since.

Indeed, Victoria, you are not an endangered species. Sadly, the unborn of America are, thanks to you and your ilk.

I can´t believe anyone would listen to RINOs and liberals giving conservatives advice on how to improve their numbers. All the advice is just telling conservatives how not to be who they are. We need to ignore these people and stick to our conservative roots - both social and fiscal. Without strong social conservatism which includes the right to life for all and traditional marriage, what we espouse fiscally means nothing. We will fail because society will descend into a mire of greed and anarchy.

The wife of an abortion doctor (they were divorced a few years later) once told my wife that the babys he aborted would cry when he killed them. The problem is the GOP cannot or will not articulate a position on this monstrous evil. We are all told to shut up about it. Such moral cowards, we deserves Gods judgement on us.

Pro abortion women always come across as shallow and self absorbed. It´s always about them unwilling to make a sacrifice of 9 months to allow a human being to survive the pregnancy. Listen to testimonies of women who chose the child over their own selfishness and how glad they were to have chosen life for the child. No regrets or shame in the pro life choice.

I adore Victoria, but the article seems disjointed, as if she´s forcing the issue and grasping at anything she can think of to justify her POV. And what does tubal ligation have to do with abortion? Also, Akin and Mourdock were idiots who destroyed their own selves.

I am pro-life, but I believe this is a state´s rights issue. I don´t believe the federal government should be involved in any way.

Final sentence says it all:

As for morality, our party should live it, not legislate it.

It is moral to protect the human rights of the unborn. Life begins at conception. A woman´s rights are to be recognized at conception, not when she becomes pregnant.

Victoria has herself tied up in intellectual knots over this.

Where and when was it decided that abortion should be the deciding issue in politics? Why is it a political issue at all? I reject the notion that a person must have a yes or no view on abortion in order to be a political conservative or liberal. How did we get so bogged down in social opinions and values that have nothing to do with government? Give me smaller government and fiscal conservatism and let the social stuff be decided state by state according to that state´s residents´ wants and needs.

Thank you, Ms. Toensing. But, I could have done without the "personal experience".

Um...yeah....what the hell is with telling a woman that by LAW she can´t have a tubal regardless of her age or her number of children?? I´m all for doctors opting out and not giving her a tubal based on their own convictions, she can always go to someone else, but when it comes to a woman´s OWN body....I´m all for her doing whatever she wants when it comes to her own reproductive choices...period.

Abortion involves someone else, not just her. No getting around that. However, I think it is high time that we face the reality that this is an issue where neither side is going to be able to get 100% of what they want and instead concentrate more on what both sides can agree on, like the outrageous fact that abortion is legal for any unborn child past the age of viability. Reasonable pro-lifers and pro-choices CAN agree on that.

No infanticide for babies who survived abortion, and laws that empower women to choose life for their unborn child.....like making it so convicted rapists can´t claim parental rights over any child conceived from the crime of rape and spending money where our mouths are for actual resources for women facing unwanted pregnancy....REGARDLESS of how that child came into being. Either we decide that EVERY child deserves to be born, or we decide that women with numerous children by numerous fathers is undeserving of help....we can´t have both.

@43 So you are comfortable with an arbitrary declaration of when a person is actually a human being with a right to live his/her life and they can be summarily killed outside of that subjective definition?

Kind of sounds like the same logic the Nazis used to justify killing Jews, to me.

I think when a perfectly healthy child can live outside the mother, that abortion should be illegal....and there are many pro-choice advocates who would agree with that. Stating that a child is not human or alive until it draws it´s first breath at 40 plus weeks, is philosophically stupid and absolutely false.

That said, I have had 2 children with birth defects where abortion is routinely advised. One died ( I brought him to term) and one lived. I have been in support groups where parents DID choose abortion as an option and AGONIZED over it and wept and wished it different for their child. Personally, I would never have one, but I can no longer, for the life of me, fault parents/women who find themselves in these kinds of circumstances.

While I am sure there are many women who use abortion as a form of BC, after knowing what I know, I am just as certain that there are just as many people who do the very best they can to make the best choices not just for themselves, but for their unborn child, as they possibly can. And, it should be that way.

At some point, when we have no skin in the game and don´t have to live with the consequences or situations that either choice brings, we have to trust that those we don´t know will make the very best choices they possibly can and accept the fact that the recklessness of others is also a fact of life.

The best we can do is help our neighbors and friends and befriend the ones we don´t know and do our best in our own communities and on a personal basis.....because that is truly where meaningful change actually happens.

2) Go pro-amnesty and you´ll attract the Latino / Hispanic vote.

#43, ask Grandma if she thinks a "fetus" only becomes a "real child" when it´s born. You might learn something.

Some babies are born, and survive quite well, at seven months. Some are born even before that and survive. Abortion on demand allows women to abort their child almost up to their due date, at nine months´ gestation. Are you trying to say that a seven-month "fetus" is not a child yet, because it hasn´t been born? If so, you´re wrong.

In the 19th century, Republicans led the fight against slavery.

In the 21st century we are leading the fight against murder, or ´abortion´ as it is euphemistically called.

In the future after murder is again outlawed, it will be incomprehensible to people that we could ever have believed that a baby is not a baby.

If abortion is so popular, why are the "pro-choicers" so terrified of putting it up for a state-by-state popular vote, leaving it to the judiciary?

The issue is abortion as a political matter. The results are in, Obama won. He likely gets to appoint 2-3 justices to the US Supreme Court (3 are more than 75 years old: Scalia, Ginsburg, Kennedy, and Breyer will be 75 next year). If Scalia retires and Obama appoints a Kagan clone, expect routine 6-3 decisions against conservative causes. Roe v Wade is safe for a generation. DOMA will be history.

#52, I have had quite a bit of fun exposing the disgusting liberals as what they are on the actual WP site.

When you back them into the corner, the bring out contraception, death penalty, and rape BS.

But they are laughable when I put it to them to define "born", and when a child "magically" has rights.

One in particular said when the cord is cut. So, a child, newly born, lying on its mother´s tummy, still connected by a cord has no human rights!

When I stated that, or course the poster left.

I don´t know when life begins, but it is pretty clear that if we are aborting at the same age children survive, it´s freaking murder!

OMG, being pro-choice does not make one pro-abortion or a Democrat. Give me a break. Being pro-choice can have limits on what is acceptable and what is not. I will say it again...conception is NOT life. Conception only becomes life perhaps 30% of the time. Look at scientific evidence. Just because an egg gets fertilized, doesn´t mean it will implant. And even if it does implant, there is still a high chance of it miscarrying in the first 6 weeks. Why can´t a person be pro-choice in the first trimester and still work toward persuading women to think twice about that choice? Forcing YOUR beliefs on others is not the same as respecting people´s different beliefs. Why not then force your Christianity on Jews, Hindus and Buddhists too? What is the difference? No, one can EASILY be a pro-choice Republican without being a RINO or Democrat in disguise. I am so sick of the hardline litmus test that people are demanding lately. Let´s support freedom. Don´t force your beliefs on others like the leftists do.

The Democratic Party has fully assimilated the self-hating, selfishly anti-human philosophy of radical feminism: ie, all gender differences are inherently "unfair" and must be eliminated. The natural physiology of the female body, being different from mens´, must be artificially altered with pills and surgery (at public expense.) Females are to be encouraged to have recreational, promiscuous sex as a matter of "equality." Traditional marriage and families oppress women. Men oppress women. Babies and children oppress women. Popes and bishops oppress women. Unfettered, free abortion is an absolute pre-requisite for their sexual utopia.

People who think reproductive/ cultural issues are completely private matters are mistaken. The birth rate in the U.S. has recently dropped to the lowest in history, below replacement level. Demographically, we are committing national suicide like the western Europeans; soon we won´t have enough native-born workers to maintain any social safety net, let alone the all-encompassing welfare state the Democrats salivate for.

To expand on #60´s second paragraph, read Mark Steyn´s "America Alone."

It´s probably academic in any event. The U.S. Constitution will be overturned before Roe v. Wade. Count on it, and plan accordingly.

A pregnant woman is arrested with traces of cocaine in her bloodstream. Does the state have an interest, a duty, to place her in protective custody until she brings the pregnancy to term?

One party has a lock on the culture of death vote, contraception for all, sex selection, over the counter morning after pills all the way to death panels. The same culture of death mentality that allowed for forced sterilizations in the thirties, applauds the forced abortion policies of China, places Planned Parenthood facilities in poor, urban ( minority) neighborhoods, establishes a uniform, centralized, publicly funded health care program which has cornerstones of health care rationing, death panels and euthanasia.
THAT is the seamless garment prochoice republicans should try on in the mirror.

Why is abortion not a state-level issue? Because of Roe v. Wade! As long as that decision stands, the states have no say on abortion. Roe v. Wade is one of the worst decisions by the US Supreme Court ever. And not because of the result, which is bad enough. It makes up a right--the right to privacy--that neither mentioned nor implied in the Constitution. Griswold--the birth control decision--at least made an attempt to tie the privacy of the so-called marital bedroom(kind of outdated now, isn´t it?) to the 4th amendment and other amendments along with traditions favoring marriage (also antiquated). But Roe does no such thing. It rests on vague grounds of substantive due process that the Court rejected during the New Deal (ironically). And even worse, Roe makes decisions on things like fetal viability that are nowhere in the record and inappropriate for even a trial court to make. It is classic legislation from the bench. I learned all of this in Constitutional Law, taught by a liberal professor. Roe only stands because liberals like the result, not because it is good law.

The pro-abortion faction of my party acting like put upon martyrs by those mean pro-lifers is truly pathetic. I stand on God´s side when it comes to life.

Yes, state issue. Fine. A political issue that has no place in the federal government´s sphere. Fine. But let´s get down to brass tacks and stop talking in happy euphemisms that sterilize what we are actually talking about. The people who want to keep abortion at any and all stages of gestation want it that way so they or their daughters and sons (or grand kids) can screw up as many times as they want and then magically not be "burdened" with a baby. The baby is perfectly disposable but they or their wee 25 year old moppets who couldn´t be bothered to put on a condom or keep their knees together must be saved from themselves, generally continuously by mums and daddums. It is the baby boomer way folks. Selfish yes, but who said people who are fiscally conservative and small government can´t have their own little selfish child killing moments too. I mean, it is all about "me", right? If these people had to actually chop up these unborn children inside their own wombs or the wombs of their kids and then look at the remains when they committed murder they might think differently.

I have no time for people that justify the killing of unborn children. You do indeed make me ill.

Abortion is a political issue for the same reason the death penalty is - when the government sanctions or pays for the killing of human beings it becomes political. What greater power can the government exercise than to deprive an innocent person of life? Vicious criminals at least get a trial before receiving the death penalty.

And I guess it shouldn´t come as a surprise that the local Romney sycophants have no problem with abortion. Every day in some small way my lingering doubts about that man are confirmed. So sorry I was suckered into voting for him. I´ll go wash my hands now.

We can talk and debate until doomsday, but, the fact remains that God´s principles and precepts remain the same no matter how many laws man may make to the contrary, or how wise man may consider them to be.

When doomsday comes, we all will be held accountable to what is written in the inspired word that was given to us by the God who created us. That´s what the Book says will happen, whether we believe it or not. We are without excuse.

God´s will and wisdom, or man´s, that is our choice to make, and our rewards or consequences to receive.

#69 I can play what if games too.

Why is it when a pregnant woman gets killed, they consider it the murder of two people?

And the whole line about it being between "her and her God" is about the lamest thing I have read on this forum. Society has rules and laws. And laws protecting life should be applied equally.

Further "grandpa", some old guys die in old folks homes with no family, so there is no funeral service, and the body is simply burned (equivalent to flushing down the toilet).

If you were in the hospital Gramps, would pulling the plug on you--with you alive and aware and looking forward to getting out of the hospital--be between your caretaker and "her God"?

#65, you put it so well, and exactly right.

I never got anyone pregnant, or even close. My sisters never got pregnant. Maybe because as teens we were not preoccupied by sex. My one sister did not have sex until she was 20 and out of the house. When SHE felt she was ready for it.

Some Republicans go to the pro-abortion side simply for the same reason the democrats do...they have had an abortion themselves, and framing everything in happy euphemisms as you put it lets them distance themselves from the horror of the whole thing. Hey, if it is legitimate and everyone is doing it and it´s even legal, why worry about it?

Same thing about most gay men you see posting on sites. They absolutely hate God and the Bible, because it makes them feel shame about what they are doing and run contrary to their belief system. So they have to belittle it, claim it´s all a falsehood, and so on.

In a horrific way, I agree with one of the other posters. Let technology show these mothers a color, clear video of their child in the womb, and let them use the tools to actually kill it, and see the results.

Hey, I wouldnt mind that experience if I had a bad tumor to get rid of, and since pro-abortionists say it´s just a clump of cells, this should not be a problem, right?

From all these posts it is clear that many in the GOP have gone over to the Left. It is clear that many in the GOP only care about money, not morality. Social issues mean nothing and money rules all. It makes me feel ill to hear you say "I am against abortion but I won´t stop YOU from killing the unborn". I will compromise on many things, killing the innocent, NEVER.

Toensing blames an arbitrary Texas law --regarding sterilization, not abortion-- for her conversion to a "pro-choice" stance.

I thought Toensing was smarter than that. You don´t even have to be a lawyer (as Toensing is) to see that there is a simple and conservative solution to laws such as the one that made her so indignant:

The simple and humane solution? Repeal the sterilization law!
The stupid and cruel solution? Have a leftist court overturn all states´ laws regarding abortion, thereby opening the door to mass slaughter of unborn children at any stage of gestation, and in very state of our formerly beautiful country.

For those that are pro-choice, do you favor abortion on demand up until birth? What about abortion because the fetus is female (or male)? What about after a pre-natal birth defect diagnosis? The reason even pro-choice Republicans should care about abortion is because Roe v. Wade allows abortions virtually without limitation. Originally, third trimester abortions were supposed to be only save the life or health of the mother. But health as been interpreted to mean just about anything--emotional distress, sadness, etc. We need a pro-life President who will appoint conservative Supreme Court justices. After Roe is overturned, I´ll happily let the states decide how to deal with abortion.

When an expectant mother visits her doctor for an ultrasound, the doctor invariably asks: Do you want to know the sex of your child? The Obama administration, however, does not believe an unborn child has a sex — even when a doctor sees indisputable physical evidence. Obama´s Office of Personnel Management has published what it calls "Guidance Regarding the Employment of Transgender Individuals in the Workplace." This document speaks of "sex" as something a person has "assigned" to them only after they make it through the birth canal.

When U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power testifies before a House Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday, the panel will consider a budget request for international organizations that is 33 percent bigger than last year’s, including a 43 percent hike in U.S. contributions to peacekeeping missions. The administration’s fiscal year 2015 budget request for the U.N. and other organizations is $4.036 billion, up from $3.031 billion in FY2014.

The first – which has been used for all 27 amendment to date – requires two-thirds of both the House and Senate to approve a resolution, before sending it to the states for ratification.

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied. In a Tuesday appearance on HuffPost Live to discuss outreach to African American communities,

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Spanish historians say they have discovered what Monty Python could not – the Holy Grail, the legendary cup Jesus supposedly drank from at the Last Supper. The Spaniards – Margarita Torres and José Ortega del Río – believe the 2,000-year-old vessel is in a church in León in northern Spain. The pair spent three years studying the history of the chalice and last week published a book, “The Kings of the Grail,” making their case. The onyx chalice, they explained, was concealed within another antique vessel known as the Chalice of Doña Urruca, which is located in León’s basilica of

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings. Restaurants, states, [and]

Monday morning’s episide of The View ended with an unexpected surprise. During the “What’s Pop’n” segment, hosts Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd showed a scandalous clip for a recent episode of HBO’s Girls to demonstrate that “not everyone has body issues.” Then, they boldly went where no hosts of The View have gone before. “Lena, she gets press every week for being naked, we’re jumping on the bandwagon,” Shepherd told the cheering audience before asking McCarthy, “Why is my big black box so much bigger yours?” What exactly are The View producers trying to say?
