RNC 2012 101: Government Exists To Protect The Individual Liberties Of Everyone Without A Uterus.

The GOP 2012 Platform was formally adopted yesterday. One of its planks: A Human Life Amendment to the Constitution ("Personhood") with no exceptions for rape, incest or the life of the mother.

In the wake of the furor over Representative Todd Akins outrageous remarks about some magical pregnancy-prevention process which occurs during a rape, Mitt Romney now claims that he rejects the "no exceptions" part of the GOP anti-abortion platform.

When Samantha Bee (The Daily Show) asked numerous GOP conventioneers for their responses to Mitt's choice to 'go rogue' and reject the Party's absolute zero abortion plank, some of the most popular responses were:

"We live in America... A free society.";  "It's up to every human being to decide what's best for them.";  "Who are we to tell someone how they should act?";  "It's hard to make that decision unless you're the one in that situation.";  "It's not for me to judge." and...

"Government's purpose is to protect your individual liberties." *

* Except and Unless * that 'individual liberty' is the one which guarantees each and every American woman's right to choose what happens to her own body.
