    Abortion isn't just a "religious right" issue. You certainly don't have to be a zealot to believe that an unborn baby is still a life.

    Russ , I agree with you but I am convinced that many of these moral issues should be left up to each state

    1.if you want same sex marriage, move to Mass

    2. if you want to smoke pot legally , move to Colorado

    3. if you want to have an abortion, go to Mexico and take your chances


    in most cases many of us live in certain states because what that state has to offer,politically,socially and economically...we have also left certain states because of the change in demographics or one of the above factors...My point being with the exception of abortion, I dont want some politician in Mass. determining what I can do in my home state
    All my Exes live in Texas

    Only the religious right think that a fetus is a life. And, it was the single biggest issue that drove women away from voting Romney.

    Abortion is a total non-issue to me, but I have said many times before on here that I think that there are way too many people in the world anyway and I don't really see what is so special about human life. That being said, I think abortion is a pretty bad form of birth control and contraception is much more economical, but many of the folks against abortion are also against contraception, so I tend to mostly ignore them whenever possible. (Was really pissed when Texas recently cut off funds for Planned Parenthood and to make matters gloated about it)

    I don't really agree here either. I can see that argument without any religious feelings at all, but in my case, just don't really care.
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    I believe abortion should be between the mother of the child and God. I however do not want to pay for the mothers actions. This person like all others should take responsibility for thier actions.

    I am for a third party and even a fourth. I am also for negating the electorial college and would prefer the total popular vote. Tooo much coruption in our proccess now. Until the people of this country start paying for thier mistakes nothing will change.
