    There a lot more to it than that one part of one issue.

    it’s kind of sad (not to mention frightening) that such a large portion of the voting public actually believes there are little fetus and zygote spirits floating around somewhere

    …as many people believed years ago that the earth was flat…

    Good boy Clark, believing what you are told to believe…

    Well, some beleive and they want to legislate their beliefs onto the rest of us

    Sounds like you want to get rid of freedom of Religion. I am proud to live in a country that allows it. You don’t have to believe if you choose not too. I do not reject free thinkers, as I think what I want and you can think what you want too.

    When Obamacare kicks in, all women will be able to get contraceptives for free (if the right-wing Catholic objection can be over-ridden). In a St Louis experiment where young women were allowed to choose whatever contraceptives they wanted for free, like Obamacare, abortion rates were reduced to 20% of the control group. That’s a bigger reduction than any of the 300 GOP laws passed in the past two years has achieved. You cannot be against abortion and oppose Obamacare — unless, of course, naked partisanship trumps the will to reduce abortions.

    One child policy and male chauvanism generally made lots of female fetus abortions, but they have less hair and other body development. Death is part of life, sooner or later, after lots of quality life or not much, regardless of years,

    We need to protect the unborn until they are born. After that, they’re on their own. When women are unable to use contraceptives, let alone get an abortion, they have more children. In every nation in the world, allowing women to plan their births has resulted in economic growth due to increased opportunities for women and family resources being concentrated on raising and educating fewer children.

    If you look at my 5 point plan, you’ll see that I have a process for shutting that down. If we are going to compete with China, we need lots and lots of babies who will grow up hoping for nothing better than a life working long hours in unsafe conditions.

    Just looking at the cartoon — how did Varvel decide that when an aborted fetus goes to heaven it looks like a cute eight-year old? Why not like a sick old lady? And according to some theologians, the aborted fetuses won’t got to heaven anyway, because they haven’t been baptized.

    Here’s another cartoon for you — a sad sperm caught inside a condom saying, “Gosh, I wish I’d had a chance to fertilize that cute egg, we could have made a wonderful person.” You could have the egg on the other side looking wistful and waving at the sperm. And they would look like really good looking Yuppies or something like that.

    Well before they are women, they have to be girls and early life may not be sweet in a crazy household. But some like to think a horrible life is a good life, because it is life. That’s all you need to know, they say. Prayer can take the place of food! These kind of people will never even notice desperate kids because their noses are in the air.

    @Uncle Joe

    Is one of the five points floggings and indentured servitude? They are good for business!

    Clark, if you are right then abortion is even worse than the religious say. If there is no heaven, then killing the unborn takes from them their ONLY chance.

    Incorrect, my religion tells me what it believes and I am free to accept that or not. If I do not accept what is dogma, then I am not really part of the religion, in areas outside dogma disagreement is allowed and debated.

    I visuallize little organic puddles oozing cells, “The Blob” only red.
    No talking or thought, maybe the mucus coating twitches a little.
    Oops, this is being realistic, not allowed where magic is being serious discussed.

    I am sure there is a binder out there for you somewhere, little girl.
