  •  I don't understand (10+ / 0-)

    why those who allegedly believe that the individual has ultimate responsibility and autonomy as a governing principle cannot see that a government that has the power to ban abortion likewise has the power to mandate it.  It is a matter of "who has the ultimate right of decision over a person's body" and it comes down to two choices, a. the individual who's body it is or b. the government.

    If I need a kidney and will die without it, cannot a government who can compel a woman to "protect life" by giving birth to an unwanted fetus compel a donor to "give life" to me?

      When a government begins ruling over the bodies of its citizenry, where does it stop?  The same government that demands reproduction can, in theory, demand people of some arbituary "sub-standard" need to be sterilized or euthnanized.  A bit "Nazi-ish," Don't you think?

      When I see the abbreviation "neocons" it leads me to a visual of concentration camps, and the rampant,  blatant, discrimination of people not passing some government imposed standard.

      Let's not forget Reps strongly oppose every bill that would give every American health coverage. Ask Hillary Clinton! This is the country where an insurance company will decide what kind of treatment they can afford for your child, not the best most effective treatment.
