    Really makes you think twice about feeling the baby "kicking."

    Rep if I could. So accurately and simply stated--yet so far over the heads of the left.

    FWIW - I for one would be much happier not to see this type article on this site. I know their are weirdos out there but must we go through the process of reading such tripe?

    If it was really the killing part, we wouldn't be at war so often, and take homicides and suicides more seriously. I think the tendency to anchor abortion to other issues that are politically volatile to partisans make abortion impossible to discuss normally without it being a wedge issue.

    I honestly did go back and forth on posting this, but given the nature of this forum and the fact that the guy is the Vice Chair of the science committee in congress, I put it up.
    I did change the thread title though to make it a bit less overt.

    Do you have any thoughts or are you just posting a link for the hell of it?

    The number of abortions in this country dwarfs US deaths in wars. Next.

    That link includes a column suggesting that Republicans should stay away from rape talk. That is an understatement at this point. I don't understand why they keep revisiting that topic as justification for restricting abortion. It has never helped their cause.

    This could be the one thing that could turn the tide on this subject, in light of liberal beliefs about sexual freedom. "I jerk off, therefore I am."

    Because it is, after all, all about 'their cause', right?

    It really speaks for itself don't you think? The legislator is completely mistaken about what a 'rape kit' is.

    I find the whole subject of rape and 5+ months into a pregnancy to be a little bizarre.

    With so many abortions happeing over the past few years we have lost 300k plus tax payers (in the minds of the Democrats) that they feel the desperate need for the immigration amnesty to offset tax base.

    If the fetus is a life (which is inarguable)
    and that life is descended from humans (again inarguable)

    then it logically follows that abortion is the taking of an innocent human life.

    I guess that makes some folks crazy. Speaking for me- guilty as charged. It makes me sick that we allow this in our society.

    Some people actually care about innocents being killed- even when those innocents are not them nor their progeny. I'm sure that's hard for many on the board to understand.
