  •  Republican values (none)
    Can we stop claiming that Republican appeals to "values" swung the election?  The "values" they used were homophobia and an indifference to the suffering caused by poverty, rape, lack of access to health care, day care, quality education - all the reasons that prompt prospective parents to choose abortion.  Can we now begin to substitute the true meaning when we speak of "values" so that we write, "Republican appeals to homophobia and cruel indifference turned the tide in the recent elections."  When we use the term "Republican values" we have already been spun.
