So tell me what Obama has done for you.
He secured the killing of the unborn, gave women free contraceptives and will spend us into oblivion.

Nothing else that I'm aware of.

You'll hear crickets from the left, by the way.

<quoted text>
The argument that she has the right to choose what happens to her own body is markedly flawed. The same ones who want to give a woman the right for an abortion would condemn women for smoking and fight what was her 'choice', clearly affecting her own body. In abortion, the baby is clearly separate in content and being than the mother. It is only riding with the mother for a few months. As Christians, we should protect the helpless, including the unborn individual as it grows. Why doesn't anyone expose that the reason for an abortion is simply selfishness? The mother's 'choice' is simply what inconvenience she wants to escape.
I believe the reason people call for abortion to be legal is, simply put, selfishness. The abortion occurs as the mother (maybe under other's pressure) does not want the baby. Others do not want to feel the guilt of not picking up the pieces to help an unwanted baby. They selfishly want to spend their money on themselves and their wants rather than to sacrifice some for unwanted or unsupported babies. The mother puts her own wants above the baby's needs.
Currently in medicine, we have advanced our technology and understanding to be able to care for and nourish very early premature infants, even into the second trimester. People easily agree they have rights but across town another, same gestational age infant is snatched from the mother's body in a horrific manner. Where should we draw the line? The only answer that can be medically supported is before conception.
It isn't just another 'procedure' in medicine. Having helped and performed many 'procedures', there is virtually nothing as disgusting as the suction causing ripping and destruction of formed placental and fetal tissue that occurs with an abortion, not to mention the pain imposed on the fetus being torn apart. This is not meant to be sensational, although it is. This is to make the point that medical 'procedures' are to fix a problem and nearly all are neat and clean with this exception. When physicians remove a uterus, for example, they do their best to remove it intact. Not so with an abortion. The goal is simple evacuation. Doctors are sworn to stand up for life and to minimize suffering for all patients. Those who perform abortions have violated the Hippocratic oath. They forget that the fetus is a patient too.

This one issue is leading the charge to our destruction.

How can anyone expect anything good to come from such disregard for human life?

You asked a poster why their data regarding black abortions doesn't match the data from the CDC. Well, gee wiz, sh*thead, if you are asking why the data doesn't match than it would naturally follow that you KNOW the CDC data in order to make that comparison.

And here you are asking me to show you the CDC data!!!!!

I'll let your remedial use of the English language go at this time. However, if you wanna play games with the grown-ups, you're going to have to step up a great deal.

President Obama (I will not budge on tax policies). He stated that in 2010, I did this once, extend the Bush tax cuts for two years, and I will not do this again. Hi He Hi Ho its off the cliff we go. A recent poll, 53 percent say the Republicans will be the blame if we go off the fiscal cliff. Back to the Clinton years of budget surplus.

When the majority of Americans vote for Marxist principles over Jeffersonian principles, it's time for states who want to secede to become sovreign nations.

It's what Jefferson would have done.

Economists say that if the package of tax increases and spending cuts known as the "fiscal cliff" takes effect on Jan. 1 the economy will likely sink into a recession.

http://news.msn.com/politics/most-wouldnt-be-...

WASHINGTON - Everyone who pays income tax — and some who don't — will feel it.

The package of tax increases and spending cuts known as the "fiscal cliff" takes effect in January unless Congress passes a budget deal by then. The economy would be hit so hard that it would likely sink into recession in the first half of 2013, economists say.

And no matter who you are, it will be all but impossible to avoid the pain.

Middle income families would have to pay an average of about $2,000 more next year, the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center has calculated.

Up to 3.4 million jobs would be lost, the Congressional Budget Office estimates. The unemployment rate would reach 9.1 percent from the current 7.9 percent. Stocks could plunge. The nonpartisan CBO estimates the total cost of the cliff in 2013 at $671 billion.

What do they say?

"Watch out for carol, she is one sour grape!"

Your Mitt was shown the door! Bye bye loser.

Even with all his millions: no brain!

The lying loser thought he was "winning" up till midnight?

On that 1950 platform and thievery tax cuts for the richest?

Here is the fiscal cliff: NO BIG DEAL!

THE SUN WILL SHINE TOMORROW.

If Boehner won't play ball: then rates go up anyway. So what. Spending gets cut a little. Republicans go down as the biggest jerks ever: and never win again.

BIGGEST LOSERS EVER? YES. SOUR GRAPES MORONS.

CNN’s ANDERSON COOPER:“This president got re-elected very clearly saying that is what he wanted to do—to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans. The Republican challenger said he did not want to do that and he did not get elected. Doesn’t that give President Obama and the Democrats some right to push for raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans?”[CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, 12/7/12]

SLATE’S DAVE WEIGEL: “Barack Obama ran on one consistent tax promise, in both 2008 and 2012. Vote for him, and you’d see middle-class tax rates stay the same while the rate on income over $250,000 increased to 39.6 percent. /// Twice, in four years, a majority of voters have picked Obama for president, knowing full well that he’ll raise upper-income tax rates.” [Slate, 11/7/12]
