Obama's stance on parital birth abortions is why I cried my eyes out the first time...knowing my fellow countrymen would elect a man so callous about human life.
The number of partial birth abortions in this country pales in comparison to the number of women who died as a result of illegal abortion in any trimester. Don't tell me you're not callous about their human lives, or the lives of the children they bear if they don't abort - your every post on the subject intimates that you not only place the life of the fetus over hers, but that you couldn't possibly care less about the life these children are born to. Once they're born, your eyes weep over the next fetus, and if you had your way, the net society throws to catch them once they leave the womb, would leave your precious wallet untouched.

You are pro-fetus......not pro-life.

Then why are you & your party constantly trying to limit abortions & prevent gays from marrying.
If what you said were true, then you & our party would just STFU about these things.
You are either quite the liar or dumber than Fred.
And really, would more people utilize better contraception if it were more affordable & accessible? Would fewer get pregnant if they were on the pill / have injections good for months or relying on that condom?
condoms 50cents. The pill $18 a month if your not capabable of funding your own sex life then keep you're pants on. If you don't want anyone to have any say over your actions then don't demand others pay for the results of your actions.

Exactly
Exactly??????? What is wrong with you?

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.

Wrong answer, patbmak. My flag will stay out front every day. Throwing a fit because your candidate lost puts you down on Michelle's level. Rise above that. I am proud to be an American no matter what. I didn't take my flag down during the Carter debacle. I didn't take my flag down when Clinton disgraced the Oval Office (both literally and figuratively). I'm not taking my flag down now, either. If Obama makes good on his dozens of pie-in-the-sky promises, great, good for him. If he doesn't, well, that's why we have term limits.(QUOTE)

Extremely well said! I could not agree more.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal hurled harsh criticism at his own party after the GOP was blindsided in the 2012 elections, telling Republicans to end "dumbed-down conservatism" by putting a stop to "offensive, bizarre" comments.

“It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments -- enough of that,” Jindal told Politico.“It’s not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it can’t be tolerated within our party. We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”

Jindal told Politico Republicans should “stop being the stupid party” by working to embrace a larger group of constituents rather than becoming the party of "big anything."

The GOP governor criticized the idea that the GOP is "the party that simply protects the rich." Jindal even took a jab at Mitt Romney's now-infamous "47 percent" remarks, noting Republicans would have to be more inclusive going forward.

“The Republican Party is going to fight for every single vote,” he said.“That means the 47 percent and the 53 percent, that means any other combination of numbers going up to 100 percent.”
