If I were the baby, I would rather be aborted rather than being born into a world with parents who did not loved me but had to live under bondage of the LAW for my existance. Those who live by the LAW will die by the law.

I did not appoint the Supreme Court; aren’t you glad

You never know what that child may become…

You said:
For starters, our Civil Rights are an outgrowth of our Constitution. For that Constitution, one must have a legal right (you want legislation so here it is) to the protection of the Constitution. In order to claim the rights of the Constitution one must be a Citizen of the U.S.A.

Just out of curiosity, how do you feel about Dems insisting we confer constitutional rights on illegal enemy combatants?

Really, your point of view is all about ME ME ME, and MY MY MY — self centered and selfish. What about the BABY??

Republican policy is often contrary to this concept. The issue of abortion is not about winning or losing, right or wrong. It is about compassion for your neighbors in struggling situations. Morality can not be legislated, it must be empowered.

William Wilberforce, did indeed work tirelessly to end slavery on the grounds of its moral repugnance. He continuously failed. This is a testament to his courage and resilience, however, moral arguments were not what ultimately changed the law. It was strategy. He worked to put in place legislation that he knew would undercut the slave trade. Then, when the industry was limping along with hardly any support, the final blow in the form of legislation.

Contrast that with the end of slavery in the States. It took an embittered and bloody coup to finally end slavery in the states. Not only that, there was such great resentment at the forced approach that hatred and racism marked the antebellum South as long as a century later.

If we were smart, pro-lifers would learn the lessons of history. Our strategy should be undermine the culture’s reliance on abortion. When the culture no longer relies on the practice, it is then that we should aim our blows. Abe Lincoln said, “Public opinion in this country is everything”. We have to change the mindset before we change the laws. Right now, there are strong fears and emotions involved in the huge push for abortion rights (see: Gerri Santoro). We need to address the reasons women feel pressured to seek abortions and attack it at the root.

You are right that the murderers CHOSE to ignore God or the society’s laws. Before you decide to stop at the STOP LIGHT, you are making a decision not to violate the traffic law. You could follow your next urge to be angry or to be tolerant and teach others to love and to live in peace.

I agree that Planned Parenthood is good for my daughters and sons. I strongly think that Jesus would have approved that. You know why? Jesus was the friend of sinners not the self-righteous who think they know God’s will but did not see that God is Love.
