    Abortion Amendments

    Three states voted yesterday on abortion amendments to their state constitutions. One failed, two passed.

    Oregon Voters Reject Anti-Abortion Constitutional Amendment

    "The amendment would have prohibited state funds from being used toward abortions ― with exceptions for rape, incest and if the pregnant woman’s life was in danger ― and potentially would have limited abortion access for Medicaid recipients and public employees."

    Alabama Voters Approve Anti-Abortion Constitutional Amendment

    "Amendment 2 would add language to the state’s constitution that would declare and otherwise affirm that it is the public policy of this state to recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, most importantly the right to life in all manners and measures appropriate and lawful; and to provide that the constitution of this state does not protect the right to abortion or require the funding of abortion."

    West Virginia, Amendment 1, No Right to Abortion in Constitution Measure (2018)

    "West Virginia Amendment 1, the No Right to Abortion in Constitution Measure, was on the ballot in West Virginia as a legislatively referred constitutional amendment on November 6, 2018. It was approved."

    They're setting the stage for when a Constitutionalist court overthrows that unconstitutional abomination of Roe.

    On the Executive side I believe it was the Department of Health and Human Services who declared that established science as settled the issue and that HUMAN life begins at conception....I could be wrong about the specific department, though.

    The important thing is that the Orgy of Death (Democrats love their orgies) and their celebration over the corpses of 55,000,000 dead American babies is coming to an end.

    You're saying there's no right to privacy? How very statist of you. But then, pro-lifers are statist almost by definition, as they want authoritarian government controlling people's bodies.

    So good job with the Trump admin allowing employees to not include contraception in employee health plans. That will kick up the abortion rate. Just about every policy Trump backers support will kick up the abortion rate. Funny how that works. It's like they're okay with abortion, as long as it's illegal and dangerous and makes the dirty $#@!s pay for having sex.

    Our genius black president favored partial birth abortions. I agreed with that because it was but one first new breath away from legalizing the highly desirable abortion of Obama.

    Now, of course, all that has changed and I'm generally against abortion.

    It's difficult, if not impossible to have a rational debate about abortion. At least here anyway.

    Where do you find a right to privacy?

    So, as usual, you don't even ever try?

    You do realize you're just like your progressive friends in that you desperately seek a source for human dignity in a world where there is none?
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    I thought you didn't engage in snark and ad hom?

    I rarely get into the topic because it's fraught with emotion and hyperbole. People tend to say crazy things like "orgy of death" and that liberals 'love killing babies', etc...

    How can someone have a rational discussion with someone who believes that?
