Having a set of values and wanting the government to dictate decisions in your private life are two different things.
The demand for abortions is driven by poorly educated people who have sex like bunnies without regard to the consequences and nothing can change that.
Except to stop subsidizing it. When they see people who actually have to pay for their poor decisions, there will be a lot fewer people making them. It won't eliminate all of it, but the majority will disappear.

Constitutionally, until when life begins is defined and the guarantee of life is constitutionally mandated, it is each state's perogative. The federal government has no role in the matter, other than to guarantee those constitutionally mandated individual rights to every living person.
Originally, this was about access to contraception. The Supreme Court stepped way outside of its constitutional bounds when it forced every state to legalize abortion.
And both of the women say that their cases were based upon outright lies: in Norma’s case, the lie that she had been raped, and in Sandra’s case, that she ever wanted an abortion in the first place. These are facts that are best kept quiet if Roe v. Wade is to stand.

Well then, if you want a candidate who never so much as utters they are pro-life even without elaborating, you're going to alienate a significant number of conservative voters.
Because that question is going to come up in the debates every single election cycle.
Even black voters are switching parties in part because of this issue.
However, I agree with you that conservative candidates who are pro-life (and remember Giuliani was pro-choice) should be very cautious as to how much emphasis they allow the opposition to push this issue just to entrap them. But it's always going to be an issue. They just have to learn how to outsmart them without losing the higher ground.
But to label "fundamentalist Christians" as "anti-abortion radicals" is rather naïve on your part. No offense, but it's more of a moral issue and many oppose it on both sides...fundamentalist Christians or not.
And many, who aren't Christians, oppose abortion as a human rights issue.

I work in a very large emergency room, you would be surprised what people come in for: bug bites, rashes, constipation, headaches, tooth pain, fussy baby, medication refills (mostly narcotics), stuffy nose, etc.....Many come by ambulance because they get a bed quicker that way. These are not rare occurrences, they happen every day.
The ambulance personnel should tell them to call a cab.

Besides, blame yourself and your procedures if you give blind preference to patients who come by ambulance.

The Democrats are obviously racist, and they are helping Al Qaeda take over a country so they can establish their terrorist training camps there and plan terrorist attacks using the chemical weapons there under "international control".
Maybe that's one of the shrewd deals our genuis in chief has negotiated. He'll help Al Qaeda take over a country so they can train their own terrorists, and we won't have to train them in the training camps for Al Qaeda we run in Jordan.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) supports restoring voting rights for convicted felons who have completed their sentences, the Courier-Journal reported Monday.
Speaking at Louisville's Plymouth Community Renewal Center, Paul said he would push for changes to legislation to make it easier for felons to restore their right to vote and own firearms upon completing their sentences. Under current Kentucky law, felons must petition the governor in order to regain these rights.
“I am in favor of letting people get their rights back, the right to vote ... Second Amendment rights, all your rights to come back," Paul said. "I know of one man who 30-some-odd years ago had pot plants in his closet in college, got a felony conviction in college, still can’t vote, and it’s plagued him his whole life trying to get work."
Paul linked felon voting rights to the problem of disenfranchisement in African-American communities.
"One in three young black males has been convicted of a felony and they’ve lost their voting rights. I think it dwarfs all other (election-related) issues," Paul said, according to WFPL.
Mandatory minimums have trapped a lot of people, made them felons, made it hard for them to get jobs, for non-violent crimes," Paul said, according to the Associated Press. "I would just as soon take some of these non-violent crimes and make them misdemeanors so you don't get in that trap."

<quoted text>i still blame the Tea Party.

so we do you nutjobs get so riled up every time there's a mass shooting? 2nd amendment reflex? so...let's not talk about guns. just everything else.

nope. i want to talk about guns. and so do a lot of other people.

Just five months ago, a mile and a half away at the U.S. Capitol, the U.S. Senate defeated a compromise proposal to expand background checks on gun purchases, despite vast public support for the proposal.

The gun control proposals had followed the horrific massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in December, where a deranged gunman killed 20 children and six educators before taking his own life. The Senate proposal would have required background checks for sales at gun shows and the Internet, closing glaring loopholes in current law.

Is there a place in America that hasn't been touched by a mass shooting? Has it become part of life in this country? About 3,000 people, military and civilian, work in the building where the shooting took place. We ask for senators who voted against the gun control bill to go down there tomorrow and look them in the eye.

Liberal idiotacy brain dead flowchart:

If not then,

#2. Was the guy white? To blame white racist.

If not then blame the gun!!!

But we Conservatives already know it is always either a black Liberal or a Liberal protected Muslim.

See? Liberals are always wrong!

What felony had he been convicted of?
You do realize that you cannot be denied any of the individual rights specified in the Constitution except by due process of law, right?

If some local politician wants to take his neighbor's guns away, and he arranges for the local Sheriff to arrest him, and there is never a trial, does that neighbor loose the right to keep and bear arms?
Your Democrat mass murderer did not have a conviction. Just arrests.
And, arrests are sufficient to deny a security clearance.
Why? Because a security clearance is a priviledge, not a right.

Let’s Not Wait to Talk About Gun Control

Thirteen people are dead at the Washington Navy Yard. It’s not too soon to talk about gun control again.

I write on the day of the killing. Gun enthusiasts say it is inappropriate to talk about gun violence at the time it occurs. Better to wait … and wait … and wait … until time has passed, and the weeping next of kin have vanished from TV, and it’s safe to return to business as usual. The idea of the gun enthusiasts is that the way to show respect for the victims of gun violence is to do everything possible to multiply their number.

Yet the gun enthusiasts do have one point on their side: for all the horror of these massacres, they are only a small part of the story of gun violence in America. Most casualties of gun violence will not die at the hands of a mentally disturbed killer seeking random victims. Most gun casualties occur in the course of quarrels and accidents between people who would be described as “law-abiding, responsible gun owners” up until the moment that they lost their temper or left a weapon where a four-year-old could find it and kill himself or his sister.

Too bad none of the victims had guns to protect themselves against demented puke Liberals like you!

We need more guns to defend ourselves from the scum of society like Liberals like you.

That WOULD be a retarded stance were he to apply it to all offenders. He's speaking strictly of low-level drug offenders though, and that's probably a good stance in that instance. I'm sure he'll have it clarified before election season.....
