Choice for me but not for thee

Here's Jim Moran (D-VA) at a town hall meeting fielding a pretty basic question regarding Moran's seeming inconsistency with respect to two women's rights issues.

Congressman, I know you are pro-choice so why aren't you pro-choice when it comes to self-defense for woman?

Moran evades answering the question by prattling on about the length of the question(s) or something. Nice try, pal.

Women's self-defense is most certainly a women's issue so it's entirely legit to call out Moran on his hypocrisy.

Again, what the hell is a man doing telling a woman how best to defend herself? That's an angle that is underplayed by gun rights supporters in this whole debate and they do so to their detriment.

Great post. I hadn't thought of it that way.

Please don't insult the West Virginians.... Moran is from Virginia (Northern Virginia, bordering DC).

It is logically and emotionally inconsistent to support a victims right to choose for her body, but not her right to defend that body.
