    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….

    In die me,

    As per the latest statistics from the Center for Disease Control, in 2007, 32% of all black children conceived in the US were killed by abortion. 471 killed for every 1000 live births.

    Usually before you kill someone, they either have to be engaged in something that represents an imminent danger of death or sever bodily injury, in order to be justifiable homicide. Alternatively an individual must be found guilty of a capital felony and sentenced to death by a jury of his peers.

    What crime other than simply existing, did all those black children commit? Even if they were the product of a rape, why should the child, who did not commit the rape, be killed? Because his father WAS a rapist? How many people now walking the earth in the US should be killed because their fathers were rapists?

    Democrats have advocated the legal killing of black people for decades. You are advocating it. I accuse you of racism. I accuse you of advocating genocide.

    How many of those 300,000 lives destroyed could have been given up to loving adoptive families?

    The number of pregnancies that are the result of rape or incest are no more than about 12.7 per 100,000 live births. So of the 471 black children killed by abortion we can see that rape an incest would account for .0127 per 1000. That brings the number down to 470.9873 per 1000.

    And your “don’t like abortion, don’t have one” argument is specious. Don’t like communist china killing 80 million of it’s citizens? Don’t kill one. Don’t like the Nazi’s killing Jews? Don’t kill one. Think that there are too many robberies in your neighborhood? Don’t rob anyone.

    You are an advocate of death and racism. You have made the most dangerous place for a black person to be in, the place where they are most likely to be killed, is their own mothers womb.

    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.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    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.
