I get that we have had this discussion before.
Yes, I was in California, in fact my senior project was this very subject.
I know the history, I was involved.
I did not say it did not happen, I said you do not know the history.
For reasons known only to you, it is important to make this single act evidence that RR was something he was not and never was.
Pro-life and pro-choice were not even terms used at that time, they came later.
You wanna bet? Obviously, I was older than you and more aware, if you were a student (and probably influenced by the leftist professors at the time.) I was a mom of 4 small tykes, surrounded by the leftist, libertine, elements at UC Bezerkley. I sent the telegram. I received the letter from Reagan claiming that he’d considered all sides carefully and that he felt that he had to sign the bill for those poor girls who’d been raped, or incested. I kept that letter for years because it looked like it actually bore his signature. Finally, I discarded it during a move after I realized that they used signature machines for that sort of thing. No, the newspapers made up the term “pro-choice” to stop the pro-life factions from saying pro-abortion. They even tried to get everyone to attach the moniker “anti-choice” onto the pro-lifers. I imagine Plan Parenthood still uses that term in California.
