Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get…
You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else.
This is important.

So Obama can write a handwritten letter to Joan Rivers’ daughter saying how her mother made him and Michelle laugh (I wonder if this was before or after Joan referred to Michelle as the t-slur) but Obama had no time to call off Ferguson police gassing and shooting rubber/wooden bullets at peaceful protestors?
Every historian wants to know what really happened in the past. That means- at a minimum- gaining access to records, the more detailed and accurate, the closer to the actual events, the better. But in our hearts we always want more than we can ever have: We want to read documents that are lost forever; to interview people long dead; to be eyewitness to the great events that changed the course of history. We want that in part because we want to solve mysteries, we do want to know the truth about the past.
