Actress Margaret Colin is Pro-Life

She is honorary co-chair of Feminists for Life, a pro-life women's organization.

Hillary Bailey Smith is the one and only You-Know-Who.

And Dolan is pro-choice. By the way, aren't we all "pro-life"?

by Anonymousreply 310/15/2012

Exactly, R3. Colin is anti-choice, not pro-anything. She's also not a feminist because a feminist would never want to take away a woman's right to make her own choices.

That pretty much makes her a liar on all counts.

Being an anti-choice feminist is a lot like being a Nazi who loves Jews.

Please tell me Kelly Rutherford is pro-abortion!

by Anonymousreply 610/15/2012

R5, good analogy, but I would flip it - it's like being a Jew who loves Nazis.

by Anonymousreply 810/15/2012

You're right, R8. That works better.

This thread is proof that DL's posters are 50 and over.

No one 30 and under knows who this broad is.

by Anonymousreply 1610/15/2012

The funny thing is, a lot of teenagers and young adults know exactly who she is, but her face is more recognizable than her name.

by Anonymousreply 1710/15/2012

She's somebody's mother on Gossip Girl. But she's been around forever in theater, in soaps and in TV that's mostly filmed in NYC.

by Anonymousreply 1810/15/2012

She actually is a very fine, reliable NY theater actress.

This "pro-choice" position is interesting, to say the least.

by Anonymousreply 1910/15/2012

OMG OMG! I went to college with her, Was in a few theater classes with her. She was quite the sophisticate back at Hofstra. How nice she's matured into a grand old cunt.

R16, go soak your head.

by Anonymousreply 2110/16/2012

She's only pro-life because of all the babies that Margo lost because of the 'grandmother' clause in my contract.

by Anonymousreply 2211/10/2012

She is anything but reliable.

Isn't everyone pro-life? I'm pro life. I'm very much in favor of life. I also think a woman should be able to make the informed decision about whether to terminate a pregnancy.

We need to start calling people who don't think women should make their own reproductive decisions something else. "Pro-lfe" is misleading.

They should be called something like

1. Uterine interventionists: They believe others have the right to intervene in anyone's uterus.

2. Fetal statists: The state comprises all fetuses as well as people.

3. Vaginal transnationalists: The nation includes all vaginas because they might contain people, since personhood starts at conception.

4. Utero-publicans: The uterus is a public space.

The terminology should change. This has little to do with whether you think abortion is right or wrong, it has to do with where you believe government should interfere.

She's 54 so I guess she's past being able to get knocked up so she's wants to take away rights from younger women. Klassy.

What a condescending drip you are. How about you and others mind your own business. "Informed decision" means women need someones PERMISSION. Wrong. Get your nose and paws out of women's reproductive organs, ya weirdo. There should be a huge discussion every time a man wants to watch porn, scratch his nuts or masturbate.

R24's mother should have kept her fuckin legs closed! Stupid whore.

by Anonymousreply 2611/10/2012

R26, what is wrong with what r24 wrote? I'm 100% pro-choice, and I see nothings wrong with the post. The women I know who had abortions didn't take the decision lightly and consulted multiple sources of information in order to make an "informed choice." People who have cancer make "informed choices." Anytime a medical procedure is on the table people investigate their options so they can make the best possible choice, i.e. an informed choice. I think you're splitting hairs and reading something nasty or negative into a phrase.

P.S. R24, I call them anti-choice rather than pro-life. It's the counterpart of the terminology we pro-choice folks use.

by Anonymousreply 2711/10/2012

You can advocate being pro life, yet understand that it is ultimately the woman's decision, and be pro choice as well.

by Anonymousreply 2811/10/2012

I've seen her on tv and in movies for years and she seems to play the prissy condesending shrew,I guess she was playing herself the whole time.

by Anonymousreply 2911/10/2012

R29, so many of them end up playing themselves.

They're paid so much to 'behave.'

by Anonymousreply 3011/10/2012

[quote]"Informed decision" means women need someones PERMISSION.

It has nothing to do with permission. That is not what I meant at all. It has to do with being aware of risks involved in different medical procedures. Maybe you're unaware that women still have to go to doctors to have abortions. Any procedure involving anesthesia and anything invasive carries risks for the patient.

by Anonymousreply 3111/10/2012

R32, calm down. Most abortions take place when the embryo (not fetus, not baby) is a cluster of cells no bigger than a couple of millimeters wide. A cluster of undifferentiated cells. Late term abortions are extremely rare and horrific for the women involved who have been forced into an impossible medical situation from which there is no other escape. Get the fuck over yourself.

by Anonymousreply 3311/10/2012

r33 what do you mean by "women involved who have been forced into an impossible medical situation from which there is no other escape"?

That is one of the most anti-feminist statements I've encountered here. Women are not helpless victims being 'forced into' having late-term abortions. Come on.

by Anonymousreply 3411/10/2012

What I mean, R34, is that most women facing late term abortions have received a diagnosis that means either they, the fetus, or both will not survive a full term pregnancy. A woman carrying a wanted child she planned to deliver must then endure a harrowing procedure she neither wanted nor sought. Said woman is not a "helpless victim". I don't know where you got that.

by Anonymousreply 3511/10/2012

I personally know someone who had a late term abortion r35, and she didn't fit your description. Most women who have them are not in the predicament you describe. Some are, but not most.

by Anonymousreply 3611/10/2012

Get a grip.

by Anonymousreply 3711/10/2012

r37, this article is old, but brings up the salient points. They say that most women who get late term abortions are poor and couldn't pay for them earlier.

So not everyone is like the woman in the article you linked.

I agree with their final statement:

And the question is not which of these alternatives is more unpleasant, but whether the government should be making the decision.

by Anonymousreply 3811/11/2012

"Informed decision" is such right wing pap. Stop trying to look reasonable to unreasonable people by using their loaded language.

If it's no one elses decision but hers, it matters not a bit that her decision be informed or for any good reason at all. It can be the worst and most selfish decision she'll ever make. She can do it because she thought she'd get a free donut afterwards. Maybe she was bored.

by Anonymousreply 3911/11/2012

Margaret Colin is, in her private life, a good, practicing Catholic, so of course she would be anti-abortion...

by Anonymousreply 4011/11/2012

Margaret Colin is a never-was; does anyone value her opinion on anything?

Do you really think your "free donut" doesn't completely demean women?

by Anonymousreply 4211/11/2012

Does free donuts demean blood donation? Or Alcoholics?

And lets be real, 80 % of these broads are only pregnant because of free alcohol, so it's not like they wont be receptive.

r44 you are a nutcase. for real.

No. It does demean women when you say they might get abortions in order to get free donuts.
