    I don’t even know why we keep wasting time on this. The Supreme Court has made many rulings on this issue and no amount of legislation can change those rulings.

    Are you kidding? According to the NRC we need many more rulings until they get their way! Next, we’ll have rulings on person-hood! Then on citizen-hood!

    Nevermind that at least 5 cases were ruled in favor of Sharia law by liberal judges in violation of US law.

    I gather you’re not a constitutional lawyer.

    It is also work for trained medical professionals.

    Or make you pay for insurance that MIGHT be used to pay for someone else’s cancer. Or pay taxes that might save someone else’s business. It’s called “living in a country.”

    what about women having men put on a condom. and we would have less std and abortions. I see no problem with abortion but not to use as birth control.

    My way, or the high way? I’ll take the higher way. The way of women and mothers, those that have the most at stake in this. The decision is and should foremost be theirs.

    If men had to deal with 9 months of weight gain and morning sickness after a night’s indiscretion, (not hangovers, morning sickness) then contraception would be effective, easy, and FREE.
    And abortion would only need to be a sad but necessary medical procedure when the mother’s life is in danger.

    But since it’s so easy for a male human (I won’t call them MEN) to walk away saying “Not my problem. You can’t prove it.” abortions will happen.

    what would you use abortion for, other than to control birth?

    The White Evangelical point of view does not sell in America. The Fundamentalists have taken a shelacing in the culture wars.

    I’ve voted Republican all of my adult life but it’s getting harder and harder to support a group that is so backwards on social issues. Worse yet they are also becoming backwards on science issues. Apparently the Republican party is willing to toss away Women, Young Adults, and College educated men so that they can pander to the pews.

    The tea party bought them some time in 2010 and they squandered the opportunity by focusing on abortion and gay marriage (divisive issues) rather then paying attention to pocketbook and regulatory issues (consensus issues).

    To all you Fundamentalists – I get it. You don’t like that a woman can terminate her pregnancy at will. In return you should get this – I don’t like you pressing your religous views on me. Who, reading this, thinks the Republicans would have kept a lazer focus on the fiscal issues if they had come to power. We all know that they would have spent 3 days on it and then debated about whether or not a woman should have to endure an invasive ultrasound before she was allowed to have an abortion.

    Go back to your churches Fundamentalists and stare at each other because that is the only mirror into which you can look and see a reflection of your own views.

    I always wonder about that. The real reason could be that many men can’t handle one if they have been drinking or they have bad diets and they can’t perform energetically. I’ll bet that’s it.

    Thanks. I thought I was the only one to think this way.

    Next Charlie555 will be bemoaning that zygotes can’t vote…or even get counted for the car pool lane.
