    I don't either. I am not that fond of children but baby killing is something I have a true disdain for.

    Do others agree that one's stance on the matter is really determined by whether one believes that our country should be entirely (and unapologetically) secular, or should be underpinned by Judeo-Christian thought?

    To reiterate, I am not asking for a re-litigation of the matter. I am merely asking if others would agree that this is the fault line.
    It seems to me that, in this country at any rate, the anti abortion movement is based solely evangelical Christian politics, and as we have a separation in this country, I don't see how such a faction can legally influence such a procedure. So I will agree with your statement. I would add that, no matter where one acquires "thoughts" on subjects, said thoughts should be applied - in public, say legislatively, with concentrated objectivity bearing in mind legal standings that associate with our constitution. Otherwise such objections are nothing but faction rhetoric that means nothing.

    The saddest part about abortion is that women do not have to get pregant, especially in 2020.

    There will always be young girls making mistakes and a few women that are totally irresponsible but the lionshare of abortions are totally unnecessary because the woman should have taken measures NOT to get pregnant if they didnt want a baby.
    ALL LIVES MATTER..my life your life, our childrens lives, all childrens lives. To try and make it only SOME lives matter, divides us and fosters hatred and violence.

    But but but @jet57, he seems to believe that women have no consequences for getting pregnant.
    You constantly hear of stories where the prospective father has absolutely no say when it comes to murdering the baby. I suppose jet would demand the baby get murdered because he doesn't want babies hanging onto his ankles. Kinda cramps his style.
    I'll take the hit, but it's the truth.
