Lovely, a thread about the people taking back their own power and standing up to the politicians turns into an abortion debate among hypocrites.
You're all about freedom unless it offends your delicate, religious, conservative sensibilities. I have not nor would I ever have an abortion
personally. However, it is none of my damn business, or yours if someone else does. Your religion has no place in my life or our government.
i've already explained that i'm against abortion for the same reason i'm against murder. it has nothing to do with religion restricting anyone's
you could make this argument if we were discussing homosexuality (and in that case i'm all for equality because i can find no moral reason for it to
be wrong), but not abortion.
claiming that being against abortion, yet for personal freedom, makes one hypocritical is the same as claiming that being against murder, yet for
personal freedom, is hypocritical. i mean, i'd never murder anyone, but what business is it of mine if someone else does? that doesn't work.
you're quite right that killing anyone, though especially children, offends me. i wouldn't say that is delicate, nor would i say that is a
conservative trait. i don't buy into the political dichotomy.
Also, we live in a Republic, not a democracy. This is designed to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority.
no it isn't. a republic is designed such that the right thing is done, no matter if that opinion is in the minority, or the majority. people are
elected and given the job of researching and understanding legal matters because there are so many laws and nuances that it isn't feasible to assume
that a majority of americans have a firm enough grasp of the issues to write laws.
So even if most of the people in Texas are brainwashed christian fundamentalists it doesn't give them the right to impose their dogma on everyone
the same foolish argument that assumes people are against abortion solely because of religion. i've already addressed this.
