America is staunchly AGAINST ABORTION, even though the citizens of Mexico have NO regard for American law. How can they now support abortion but complain when we shoot at them on the border when they're undeniably criminals?

Because their country is run by an out of work cab driver!! Mexico is a cesspool in every way, shape and form. They just joined the League of Loser Nations with this move!

America is not against abortion. Poll after poll shows that the majority of people in this country wand safe, legal abortion with restrictions.

Mexicans cross teh border amid gunfire and persecution because the economy of their country is shot. NAFTA contributed greatly to that, as does ongoing governmental corruption there.

A parent will risk death and jail to feed their children, and in many cases headign to the US is the only alternative to watching their children starve and die of preventable illenesses like flu and dystentary.

The citizens of Mexico have no complaint if they do not like legalized abortion after all they voted for in the present government.

George Bush's new immigration policy twist: Abort them there, so we don't have to feed them here.

As long as people are interested only in themselves, abortion will always be around. It is an unfortunate state of being when we have to accept the murder of innocent life in order to be happy. It is amazing that teen girl needs to have their parents permission to get their ears pierced, yet pro-abortion lobbyists want to give them easy access to this medical procedure that requires anesthesia. Could the reason perhaps be that this is actually be a money making scheme???

How does Bush factor into this at all? Why can't people simply accept that even if abortions are illegal, there will still be those that wish to have it done and will do so, be it by a hanger or drugs. People need to stop equating religion with law.

Who would of thought that Mexico would be going in the right direction and realize that overpopulation is an danger and that if you do not want a baby you should have the option of safely not having one while we in this direction will be put in the wrong direction with GW's supreme court. When will people realize that the bible was written in a time when there few people and the more the better. It was a very good book for its time. It does not apply to a lot of world today.

With the immigration debate raging, stopping them at the borders is one thing; but stopping them in the womb? Interesting at best....

If you don't want a baby, there are other ways of going about that - abortion is NOT birth control - it is death. The Bible (with a capital B) is not only relevant, it is truth, and until people understand selflessness rather than selfishness they will never understand what the best selling book of all time really is about. If all people would follow the Ten Commandments, jails would be unnecessary, that is how relevant the Bible truly is.

Also responding to the comment by Bruce who stated at the beginning of his note, "overpopulation is an danger," and at the end he says that the bible was "written in a time when there few people and the more the better." Which is it - overpopulation is dangerous, or the more the better?

Of course you biblethumpers don't condone immigration because it interferes with your utopian fantasy of having a WHITE "master race" in this country....not only are the biblethumpers like you pushing for a taliban style regime here in america but they're ALSO pushing for an all white one as well as it's NO secret that many of these extremists "christian" groups are also racist as well.

We already had such a nut in human history who believed as you extremists do....his name was Adolph Hitler & WE DO NOT want another monster such as that in our midst ever again.

Tell that to the baby as it is torn apart and sucked out by a vacuum tube? What part of that "isn't" right for today?

I'm not sure what religion has to do with abortion OR immigration.
