opinion: Hoekstra's stance against abortion has gone too far
By now, we've all see the outrageous comments by a Missouri Senate candidate implying that women who get pregnant after rape weren't raped but what scares me more is that even here in Michigan there are politicians who want to strip rape victims of their right to choose.
Specifically, Pete Hoekstra the former west Michigan GOP Congressman who brags about being against abortion in cases of rape and incest. He even wants to make some forms of birth control illegal!
Religious freedom means that we each get to make our own moral decision and when it comes to having the government make decision for women who've been raped, Hoekstra has gone too far.
