Why?
"Abortion RIGHTS supporters" would be accurate. Not many people are real supportive of the act of having an abortion, most view it as a trauma.

I'm not necessarily like them, I'm all for voluntary abortion and even voluntary sterilization. As long as there's no coercion involved I think most people who seek an abortion are providing a public service and are looking out for the best interests of an unwanted child.

"National security could not have possibly been a reason to lie to us and the rest of the world about a terrorist attack that left four Americans dead."
Right, also probably not enough to swing an election. You ascribe your paranoid motives to any action then in your "reasonable" mind your assumptions become fact.
Yep, that's how "reasonable" works!
Seriously? You can't see that if Obama had admitted to a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 after announcing to everyone on the campaign trail he personally had al Qaeda on the run because he killed bin Laden that he wouldn't look ridiculous just weeks before the election?

He just looked ridiculous instead after the election because everyone knew he lied to win the election.

That makes a lot of people angry - reasonable people.

...a difficult moral issue.
Women are going to abort the fetus, legally or illegally ....have done so since colonial times.
In a perfect world there would be No abortions.
Morality is not determined by percentage favoring abortion or opposing abortion?
Hmmmm

Interesting comment.

Does morality include those yet born or does it only concern those now living?

What would prevent this from being reduced to just situational ethics?

In 1973 there was limited fetal medicine.
Roe v Wade decision was issued after many states had passed legislation legalizing abortion.

The issue may come down to who makes the decision to have an abortion.
The woman involved, the woman and her partner, or a state legislature.

If a birth takes place in a late term abortion and the child is killed this is murder.

<quoted text> it appears that China has now bought the country of Nicaragua. And a canal is going to be built that by- passes the Panama Canal. I believe Central America is going to be the new wave of Capitalism in the world.
It is going to be far larger even than the new canal they are building in Panama beside the old one. Good news for the port of Hampton Roads..

I had an ethics professor who was trapped in the same stereotypes as you.

He was wrong and had to adjust my grade up- as it was an opinion paper- and so are you.

The video that Obama and Hillary claimed created the anti-Muslim sentiments leading to the attack and the murder of the ambassador. The video they talked about for weeks afterwards even though they knew it was a terrorist attack the night it happened.
But thanks for making my point. A reasonable person would have known about the video and a cover up at the highest levels.
poster Death of Tenzing is just another low informed voter who is stuck on "but, it's all Bush's fault, Obama inherited a mess."

meanwhile, Kenyans are upset that he won't be visiting his place of birth during his gazillion dollar vacation this summer with Moochelle and the girls and their 100 closest BFFs.

There is a whole stack of SCOTUS decisions since then that attempts to balance viable baby and woman's choice

Maybe you can go back to his post and show where he deflected blame from the Democrats. I must have missed it.

Get it together and respond to what was posted.
You were dissing Bettie for using the same Time source as DuPont
"But you conveniently overlooked the part about "Democrats promoting and protecting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac". And you conveniently overlooked the part about the "economy taking off after the Bush tax cuts". So, basically, you are wrong."

so let's start with how a Republican Congress somehow let Democrats protect F&F.

and then we can go on to how the Bush tax cuts did nothing for our economy. did plenty for China's economy, but a big failure at home.

Great. Means they live longer than black people because of genetics and living habits.

What about the wishes of the developing human being the "mother" created by her decision not to have protected sex?
Women should have the right to kill the life they, themselves, created even when birth control is easily accessible and creating an unwanted baby is easily avoidable?
The percentage of those who are pro-choice has dropped from 47% to 41%. I believe it's going to shrink even further.
Now that birth control is free.
nice argument, but i'm pretty sure the right wing nutjobs have been calling birth control the same as an abortion.

so carol...when did you become a liberal?
