Until America wakes up on abortion and Roe v Wade is overturned any pro-life legislation wouldn't go anywhere.

Abortion is terminating a pregnancy. That has nothing to do with "executing babies".

That you can't understand the difference is why you're just another nutjob.

Abortion is terminating a life.
If i stabbed somebody and threw them off a bridge or shot them the end result is still the same.
The fact you can sleep at night for defending the murder of the unborn shows what a nutjob you really are.
Liberals act as if it is only a baby once it has been delivered and according to Obama it isn't even then.

And it is the same end when someone is executed, but lots of people defend that too. Before you claim that a baby has no choice to be good or bad, realize that your analogy with a person thrown off a bridge does not account for that either.

If that were the case, then the SCOTUS would never have ruled it a constitutional right.

Actually it's SCIENTISTS & DOCTORS who say it's not a baby until it is born; up until that point it is a fetus.

A baby has rights.
A fetus doesn't.

Unless this grown person is somehow trying to crawl inside your body to use it as nourishment to grow and develop something entirely beneficial to them, you have no comparison, in that case you would have the right to throw them off the bridge as you would be protecting your "person". thats called self defense.

Abortion is a decision made by a woman/girl concerning HER body, her uterus, her resources. I will bet you are for smaller government....right? Just small enough to fit inside and govern a womans vagina?

Doctors and scientists don't all agree on abortion for good reason. From the moment of conception (when the sperm infuses with the egg), all the requirements of being a living organism are met. Not just any living organism, the very beginning of a human being. So, in my opinion, abortion in any since is taking the life of another. In regards to Romney, coming from his Mormon background, he was raised in the belief that abortion was acceptable under certain circumstances. So yes, he was in a since pro-choice. I can't find the article I found the other day, but he had stated that he didn't believe that the government had a place in making that decision for a woman. He also later on went to say that when it came time for him to sign abortion legislature as Governor, that he personally could not justify enforcing laws that would affect the sanction of life. Whether or not he really is pro-choice or pro-life no one will really know (unless he is voted into the presidential office). I will say that his changing of stand points on this subject will really hurt him when it comes to the polls.

SCOTUS at one time ruled it was legal to own black people as slaves. SCOTUS isn't always correct, just correct when whoever is holding the court at the time and who's agreeing with their decision.
Not all scientist and doctors agree on abortion, many doctors refuse to perform abortions at all.
Sooooo, i guess you would have no problem reaching into a womb and choking a fetus to death as it kicks and wriggles?

No woman has any control over her own "vagina" or over her own body other than saying no to unwanted sex.
It is legal to take drugs into your body? Not unless they are approved by the government.
Is it legal to sell "your" body as sex? Not in 99.99% of the United States.
It is legal to commit suicide? Nope, if you are caught trying to do so you will either end up in jail or a Physiatric ward.
So in reality the government is already controlling your body anyway, other than abortion.

It's not right to give money to American corporations, only to have them invest our tax dollars overseas.

At least with the welfare program, our tax dollars stay here.

When doctors, hospitals, medical supply companies and individuals commit fraud it doesn't.

You mean the taxpayer giving lazy bum Ann Romney money to sit on her lard ass all day long pretend to have MS.

Yes, I agree about that one. Of course she does claim $77,000 for Rafalca's labor which is infinitely better than Ann who hasn't worked a single day in her lazy bum of a life.

So now the woman/girl who is poor and raising the baby you would force her to have is lazy? Now raising a child is not work? Make sure you tell stay at home moms how lazy they are.

Pregnancy is a medical/physical condition. A woman/girl has the right to determine what is best for her body. The males in our society have no right to make her medical/physical decisions for her just as women do not make those decisions for men.

This subject is about nothing more than controlling women. I am sure you realize that.

Romney has prostituted himself to the 17 billionaires of the GOPOX so prostitution is legal in the Republisum Party.

Republiscums would force a women to keep the fetus that is killing her. Republiscums want to execute her for the crime of having a defective fetus.

That is exactly the opposite of suicide where the government is trying to protect your life not execute you. You are a real perv aren't you.
