I tend to avoid addressing specific politicians and prefer to stay out of the partisan political fray. But occasionally a politician will say something so silly, absurd, or flat-out wrong in an attempt to support a position that it needs to be called out.
For the record, I consider myself personally anti-abortion and politically pro-choice. I wrote a whole article explaining that stance, which you can read here. But on a basic level, I am sympathetic to the folks who want to stop abortions. I want there to be as few abortions as possible (which is why I support legislation that has actually shown to reduce them, such as easy, affordable access to birth control and universal healthcare).
So when I say that Senator Ted Cruz's tweet about the abortion pill is a big pile of hooey, understand that I'm not coming from a super pro-abortion stance. I'm coming from the let's-do-what-makes-the-most-sense stance. And this tweet does not make sense.
