    but I have a penis and not a uterous. I even wrote a Diary on this topic, in a way today. When you are running around saying us liberals want to kill babies, well you might be helping to fan the flames of folks that might like to do somebody harm.

      as a moral failure.  In the Old Testament it says that if a man harm another man's wife and causes her to have a miscarriage, he owes the husband money, not a life.  Miscarriages occur all the time, and abortions are better for society than unwanted and unloved children.  I also think men have no fucking business dictating what a woman does with her body.

        laws causing decreases in the number of safe abortions without causing increases in he numbers of unsafe abortions.  Back before Roe v. Wade, abortions were still performed in large numbers, just not always by certified doctors or people with clean instruments.

        Making abortion illegal would be the worst thing to happen to the Republican party, as they would be forced to explain their bigotry to the grieving families of poor dead teenagers.

      are open to likes and dislikes rather than scientific standards, and consider the decision to have an abortion no different from the decision to have any other invasive medical procedure.  It boggles me that being morally against abortion, even if you're not attempting to force your views on other people, is a more credible position than being morally against insulin.
