I'm asking this anonymously because I know someone is going to get themselves all offended by the implication here. :) That said, I'm completely serious about this question and not asking just to be a wise ass.
It seems to me that supporters of the proposed health care plan trend toward those that classify themselves as "liberal" and/or "democrat." People self-identifying with these labels are also often pro-choice. (Not all, I understand, but a large #.) Can you explain to me how you rationalize the following:
A major pro-choice argument is "It's my body the government has no right to tell me what I can and can't do with it." Right? Then why is it acceptable for the government to take over our health care (insurance) and be responsible for saying what will and will not be funded through that program -- and thereby saying what treatments we can and can do FOR our bodies?

I'm pro-choice and I am for a single payer source as well as a national health care plan. A national health care plan doesn't tell me how to make my care decisions, it only makes it affordable and I have access now to resources that I might not have had other wise. I'm very comfortable with being pro-choice, very comfortable with supporting health care reform, and I am still proud to have voted for our current president.
