Dear Joe ...

I'm so glad to hear that you are morally disturbed by abortion and I absolutely trust that you will not have an abortion should you get pregnant.

You obviously understand such a decision is an important ethical challenge to a person carrying a potential child. It deserves deep, serious, and compassionate reflection.

So why would you deny the opportunity for such adult decision making to low income women -- often of color -- by supporting the Hyde Amendment ban on federal assistance for this medical intervention? Do you really believe such women don't deserve the chance to live as moral adults, just as you wish to do?

Inquiring women want to know ...

I had said I was going to stay out of the 2020 president scrum, but Joe has drawn me in.
