That really stupid fucking thing McCain said at the debate about 'women's health'

Everyone's been blogging and buzzing about what an ass McCain was when talk got around to reproductive rights and women's health.

Basically he said asking for a provision for women's health in any anti-abortion legislation is an extreme position us 'Pro-Abortion' people love to take. No one is Pro-Abortion, Senator. We're Pro-Choice.

It's reminds me of a great Sarah Silverman bit where she says she and her boyfriend are considering an abortion – but she hasn't been able to get pregnant yet.

Anyway, at some point I just started screaming at the TV: "You're not Pro-Life, you're fucking Anti-Choice." The clip is above and here are a few links to start you off:
