I guess we will simply have to agree to disagree. But realize this, we aren't missing each other's points by much. Usually it is the last inch
that is the biggest gap between two opinions anyways.
It still simpy comes down to the choice of the woman involved. I may not agree with their choice (as I said, if they choose to abort) but I have ZERO

Okay, that may be stretching the discussion a bit. I'm simply trying to say that it still comes down to the person involved. Sure, you can talk

I know you are pushing the point that Palin won't be making any changes to laws but you miss the overriding point. She will be in virtually one of
