Guess who said it:

(1) "In all we do, we must remember that the best health care decisions are made not by government and insurance companies, but by patients and their doctors."

(2) "[T]he attending physician, in consultation with his patient, is free to determine, without regulation by the State, that, in his medical judgment, the patient's pregnancy should be terminated."


(1)  Pres. George W. Bush (State of the Union Address, 2007)

(2)  Justice Harry A. Blackmun (Roe v. Wade, 1973)

The President surely doesn't think abortion is merely a "health care decision"; he thinks there is an unborn person involved.

Really? Then why does he think abortion should be allowed in cases of rape or incest?

He might think that rape or incest cases qualify for some sort of Thomson-McDonagh evicting-a-trespasser rationale, but other abortions don't. Or maybe he's confused and has an inconsistent position. But surely simply supporting a rape exception doesn't amount to thinking that other abortions are merely health-care decisions.
