    Amazing, but very sad to say the least.

    There aren't many people who support partial birth abortion. It's absolutely barbaric.

    Yes, we think it should be illegal to take away someone else's freedom.

    That's exactly why there will never be agreement on the issue of abortion. If a fetus, or even a zygote, is a person, if life really begins at conception, then it follows that there is no difference between early and late term abortion, or between abortion and infanticide.

    If a fetus is a person. If life begins at conception, at birth, somewhere in between... there is no proof of anyone's opinion on this issue, whether they say that they "know" their position is correct or not.

    I'm not accusing you of anything. I'm simply asking you why your arguments don't lead to a certain conclusion. That's simply discussion.

    How can the government "protect our god given liberty" without doing it "by force of law"?

    It can't. But those two are not contradictory.
