Kerry´s wife “for choice”

.- Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Democratic Presidential candidate Sen. John F. Kerry, has revealed her pro-choice position in an interview published in Newsweek. "Ultimately you're either for choice or you're not, so I am…I ask myself if I had a 13-year-old daughter who got drunk one night and got pregnant, what would I do. Christ, I'd go nuts."

Heinz Kerry, who five years ago allowed that she was not 100 per cent pro-choice (but now says she is no longer allowed such qualifiers for the sake of her husband’s campaign, according to the Newsweek interview) also said that she thought abortion was undesirable and unpopular: "My belief—and I maybe am very wrong—is that women, generally speaking, do not want to have abortions. With the exception of people who are mindless—and there will always be mindless people of both sexes—most women wouldn't want to. So starting on that premise, I'd say it's our duty as a society to help women arrive at the best conclusion.”

The interviewer, Newsweek contributing editor Melinda Henneberger, reports that Heinz Kerry “finds overt sexuality in the culture both sad and demeaning,” but she does, “on the other hand” wish that the Catholic Church reversed it´s position on birth control.
