It seems that the question of abortion is when and if the unborn child is actually alive. I'm not sure if this question will ever be answered since it requires definition upon definition and philosophical questions, which won't get answered to everyone's satisfaction.
But Atheyst, in response to your sig (which is the only reason I replied to this thread ), here's a quote:
"When governments fear the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government there is tyranny."
- Thomas Jefferson

Haha, I'd rather see it spent on helping people rather than the creation of new weapons used for the sole purpose of political gain. Yes, help fund NASA too but keep the military out of it.
The problem is the money paid to these programs never properly make it there. This is the real problem and this is why taxes rise. If you misplace funds your probably going to jack up the costs.

SourGrapes - I hear you. However, that's the same for any kind of philosophy or belief - some people will blindly follow what they see as virtue, without questioning or digging deeper. I know some people who are for the death penalty but can't explain why; I also know people who are against it but can't explain why.
I don't think that exercising intellectual laziness is a trait only liberals have.
