Does anybody realistically think that abortion will ever be outlawed in this country ?

Stop throwing elections away over it.

The threat of outlawing abortion is used by both parties to get votes.

I'm a special bird...

I agree with this:

Sad state affairs when protecting life is viewed as extremism.


But I also approve of abortion. In fact, I love abortion. Wish more people would.

I'll just leave it at that. LOL

The question is pointless. I personally don't agree with abortion, except in instances of rape, incest or when the life of the mother is at stake. But I also realize that Roe v. Wade won't be overturned, making this a moot point. People need to realize that and stop making abortion such a polarizing and viable issue in campaigns.

Anyone want to chime in on how being pro life is a radical belief? People throw this around all the time now but can't answer specifically how protecting life is radical and allowing the unnatural termination of life is normal.

I could see a few scenarios where it is.

I believe the OP's gripe is that I'd you are pro-life, you are seen as an extremist in your views, even if you believe it is a state's issue. And I agree with him. In today's america, it is pretty much considered extreme to be a social conservative (be it traditional small gov't conservative or neo-con conservative)

I don't recall Romney focusing on abortion. I do recall the liberals fear mongering women about the issue.

If Republican candidates would stop using abortion to pander to the social conservatives, then liberals wouldn't have any ammunition to go at them with.

It's a non issue for me. Human life isn't really that important or special. There a billions out there. What's one more or one less potential human?

I'm sure you are smart enough to understand that a segment of the voting population would find it "radical" when candidates are talking about rape victims being forced to carry thier pregnancy to term.

Why would anybody want to give that to thier opponent in an election ?

one of the things that the Republicans have to stop doing is litmus testing candidates on the abortion issue...

look at the voter turnout and percentages....single women under 40 won the election for Obama, his staff did a brilliant job of targeting them in their advertising thaw went under the radar of the Republicans....

So you agree that it is not a radical view then. Just being honest about that view will cost elections. I may agree with that.

"Innocent" connotes a state of mind... an absence of evil intent.

How can something WITHOUT a mind be "innocent"?

Sorry, but more and more women are not feeling bound by your religious nonsense.

You're exactly right.. Those alter boys should be protected from the predatory fricks that run the Catholic church



Relevance to the thread?

There is none.

Yeah, there is.. the title of your desperate thread is about "Protecting the Life of the Innocent".. Do the young altar boys not fit that category?

It isn't. But it's also dishonest to claim that it's murder and do so little about it. I get that you'll just keep repeating that it's a talking point, but you can't get around it. I tried to when I was pro-life. There is no justification for calling it murder and not taking whatever action is necessary to prevent it.

Legality doesn't make it right. You prove that by fighting it. Nor does the illegality of taking violent action, if necessary, remove responsibility to do so. God will not look down on Germans that knew about the Holocaust and say that they were following the rules and it was ok to let it continue. You know that murders are taking place. You aren't stopping them. Peaceful protest is great when the action you're protesting is peaceful. When the action you're protesting is murder, you're either a coward or you don't really care.

When I say the above, I'm speaking of myself at one time. I'm not attacking you. I'm laying out my views and the issues I addressed.
