    Are you going to raise the 300,000 tossed lives yourself, Lisa? Abortion is no easy decision to make, but it is the right of every woman to make her own decision about it. You don’t like abortion? DON’T HAVE ONE.

    Panel 1: 2012. Panel 2: many, many years. Figures lie. Liars figure.

    I guess it’s fortunate that I’m older and mellower. I realized some time ago that getting too spun up by these issues left little room for reason and compromise to find solutions for the problems. I’m a Libertarian, abortion to me is a non-issue. Like same sex marriage and many other “issues” that rile the social conservatives, I believe that whatever people choose to do that doesn’t impact others negatively they should be free to do. In my mind that is a lot of where the 9th Amendment to the Constitution applies.

    Gun violence? In spite of the daily inflammatory rhetoric, intelligent regulation is practical, prohibition isn’t. It won’t solve the problem we have because there will always be a market for guns for those that really want to obtain them. Violent behavior is a systemic problem inherent in our population and needs to be addressed on many different levels. If you don’t like violent movies, don’t go see them. Same with video games. If we don’t want mentally ill people to be able to so easily commit violent acts, build up the treatment system and address the problem directly.

    If you are dissatisfied with our system, change it. We have accepted the status quo of our government structure to the point that it is like herding chickens to get them to focus on the needs of the people. The attitude that they know what we need better than we do is ridiculous. That is one of the principal reasons this republic was founded to begin with. We have gotten too comfortable and now it is coming back to slap us in the face.

    2/3 of the gun deaths are suicide. And they are not depressed women with recent abortions.
    They are children who grew up thinking they were better off dead.
    No conclusion, just a long list of dead childhood friends and personal knowledge of gun violence.

    I am pro-choice, but I’ve seriously been debating in my interior monologue the past month whether this societal and gov’t-approved/funded concept of easily throwing away human life that’s inconvenient in some part, big or small, brings about the thoughts that inspired Newtown, Columbine, etc….

    Equally tragic, totally unrelated.
    Abortion is an impossible issue and keeps Americans from fixing things that can be much more easily addressed.
    Gun violence can be greatly reduced with improved background checks, limiting rounds a gun can fire before reloading, limiting the amount of ammo one can buy per month, etc, etc.
    None of these would stop a legitimate hunter or a skeet shooter, or even a collector with proper licenses.
    The easy things we should do today. We can start limiting gun violence today. The difficult things we should do over the next weeks and months. The impossible things we should do when everything else is fixed. If we make this a safer, healthier, happier country, abortions will fall simply because people will be mentally, physically, and financially able to have a wanted child.

    Planned Parenthood did 329,445 abortions in 2010;
    PP did 333,964 abortions in 2011.
    PP received $542.4 Million in government grants & reimbursements which includes payments from Medicaid managed care plans.
    PP stated in the annual report that their total assets are $1,244.7 Billion.
    and the USA has 663,409 less potential taxpayers and citizens in 2 years time.
    On gun violence, the annual FBI crime statistics covering years 2005 thru 2011….more people are killed by blunt objects than by rifles….and more are killed by hammers and clubs than by non-categorized types of guns….and NEARLY TWICE AS MANY ARE KILLED BY HANDS AND FISTS.
    so liberals to be fair on new laws to BAN GUNS need also to BAN HAMMERS, CLUBS, HANDS AND FISTS.
    But liberals are not fair.
    And God is keeping count. God is Pro-Life.

    Including those who get pregnant because of Rape (which is usually started by the male half of that process), or those who wouldn’t make a very good mother?
    …and you wonder why this woman keeps flagging you. Why don’t you listen to @C Downs? He’s right on this issue. Let’s use the energy to preventing the need for abortions by protecting the women who are scared & see no way out of their situation!

    HERE’S the biggest no-brainer: Don’t want to have a baby? Don’t have sex! We would get rid of a whole host of issues if people took seriously the fact that sex is supposed to cause pregnancy! (I’m thinking abortion, unwanted pregnancy, STDs, unwanted, abused, & neglected children, overpopulation,etc.etc etc.)

    Or another radical concept, practice “safe” sex! Birth control pills, condoms, “other” gynecological devices have a wonderful way of preventing abortions from being necessary.
