  •  culture of life? (3+ / 0-)

    One nit to take with that... I'm for a culture of life - but for actual human beings.

    This whole debate is at essence a debate of when life begins - all the rest stems from that one issue. This idea of being "pro-life" or "for a culture of life" just irks me... Everyone is in favor of life.

    Freedom isn't free. So quit whining and pay your taxes.

      "Cake or death?"  Not many takers for death.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

      Family planning is essential to slowing global warming as well as personal considerations like being able to feed the family you already have. People who are against sex ed, birth contol, and abortion are "pro-forced-pregnancy" and "pro-population-explosion" as we'll as "anti-personal-responsibility."
