Well Carol, you have a whole forest in both your eyes. Liberals are more capable of examining the complexities of an issue like abortion. We ask why women choose to terminate a pregnancy and what we can do to make this option unnecessary. We favor access to contraception, comprehensive sex education in schools and strengthening the social safety net to ease the economic burdens of having a child. Liberals like Laura Delauro have proposed legislation like Reducing the Need for Abortion and Supporting Parents Act which didn't have even a single Republican cosponsor. You and your ilk on the other hand just want to outlaw abortion which will force women to seek out back alley butchers like Kermit Gosnell. Before Roe v Wade made terminating a pregnancy legal and allowed women a safe medical option this happened all too frequently and women died as a result.<quoted text>
Don't look now, but there's another log in your eye. Please remove it before focusing on the splinter in mine.
We all want to help the poor. You seem to think you somehow have a monopoly on compassion just because you're a liberal and everything that entails.
As a liberal, you defend abortion on demand, voted for a man who has no qualms about denying a born alive botched abortion baby medical care, and supports laziness and slothfulness as a lifestyle at hardworking taxpayers' expense.
Being a conservative who is against abortion, who didn't vote for a man who has such a callousness towards life and the most vulnerable, and who believes human dignity trumps dependency on others does not make my any less of a Christian than you.
Pride goes before a fall. Watch your step.
Your accusation that Obama as a state senator voted against protections for babies born alive due to botched abortions is a lie. There were already laws in place to cover that eventuality.. Illinois compiled statute 720 ILCS 510/6 states that physicians performing abortions when the fetus is viable must use the procedure most likely to preserve the fetus life; must be attended by another physician who can care for a born-alive infant; and must "exercise the same degree of professional skill, care and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as would be required of a physician providing immediate medical care to a child born alive in the course of a pregnancy termination which was not an abortion." Failure to do any of the above is considered a felony. The legislation he voted against contained language that was intended to intimidate physicians performing what whether you like it or not is a legal and necessary procedure.
Taking care of the most vulnerable in our society doesn't equate to encouraging laziness you ignorant twit. You keep forgetting that the majority of those who receive government help are the working poor, families with children and those with disabilities. The only reason someone like you would give a dime to a poor person is so you can feel all smug and superior. As for liberals, and make no mistake about it Jesus was the ultimate liberal, we look to the words of the Gospels as in Matthew 25;
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. It makes no difference to us whether we do this directly as most of us do, or through our taxes. You just don't like not getting to pick and choose who to favor with your largess.
Don't talk to me about pride Carol, you're the one who claims that you'll just fly through the Gates to the Kingdom. That's presumption which goes hand in hand with the sin of pride.
