Cheryl, Obama had compelling carrots that he dangled in the faces of a strong force: single women. Apparently "lady parts" trump the unborn. His advertising campaign was provacative and effective. I had a niece make a statement on Facebook one day before the election "FU to all who voted for Romney" (except in her very eloquent verbiage it was spelled out). Well, that would include myself and most of her family including grandparents who have financially supported her. Why did she make such a statement? Because she wants a free pap smear and she deserves it doggonit!
It's all about the Entitlement. "What's in it for me?!!!!" Sadly, there's no room for the littlest spirits, the unborn. To answer your question, yes, I am ashamed that half of America voted for abortion. Because if they voted for Obama and his Entitlements, that's exactly what they did.
And the real joke in all this is on the women who think that things like their contraceptives will be free in Obamacare. The truth is, Obamacare actually provides little to nothing as a matter of statute. The "benefits" are implemented via Executive Order by whoever the President is at that given time, and can be altered at any time. So, Obama could include things like abortion and Sandra Fluke's contraception, but the next President can remove them with a simple stroke of a pen.
Aahhhh... the things we learn once it's too late to do anything about them!
Uh huh, the ole damn shape shifting carrot maneuver! Gotcha!
