This phony will do the same. She might actually vote pro-choice a few times, when it won't matter. But guaranteed, any time it counts, she will toe the anti-choice party line.
And, given your comment history, not surprising at all.
If we're at the point where we are rejecting candidates based on their associations rather than their positions, then we've pretty much decided that politics here on out really is just going to be tribal and everything will be run on a "my party, right or wrong" basis.
NARAL's and Planned Parenthood's positions on her are not terribly illuminating. They're activist groups. Of course they are going to endorse a maximalist position. That's their job. They're basically like the NRA or Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform. Their endorsements are entirely predictable and hence not at all interesting; that's also why it's not terribly interesting that a Republican declines to participate in their surveys.
The argument here kind of smells a bit of the "No true Scotsman" fallacy.
Let's hear which of these Republican tactics she's willing to go on the record against and call out as disingenuous bullshit.
If people want a legislator who will reliably vote against crazy GOP stuff, they should just vote for the Democrat.
Don't get too sore. After all it's just your typical conservative projection: "Well, if I were a politician, I'd lie every time I opened my mouth. Ergo, if it's what I would do, it's what all of them MUST do."
Engund herself was absolutely clear on her true position regarding abortion access when SHE tweeted "When abortion docs R elevated 2 gods, not questioned or held accountable, society has officially gone off the rails.”
Of course, that was in 2015 - before Englund decided to run for office in a pro-choice district that voted 70 percent for Clinton.
Says someone with a comfy job, college education and tons of privilege.
"Abortion is one of the defining issues of contemporary american politics"
... is horsesh*t to most Americans.
Welcome to the internet! The first rule is you can't take anything seriously.
Everyone hated him too.
Nothing more pathetic than those who'll do anything to be loved. Or worse, call themselves "feminists".
Kinda says it all, no?
Oh, and "feminists" apparently. I can only assume they scare him into writing screeds on the internet; you know how these snowflakes are.
