    Everything when that other human being is growing inside your body. One would think this would go without saying.

    The GOP continues to back itself into a corner of a poor, Southern, white protestants voting for them in elections with rich white protestants backing them monetarily. It's a losing strategy with changing demographics.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    It does not go without saying.

    It does not go with saying.

    It just flat out does not go. "It" is an illogical talking point that has never made sense.

    A mammalian offspring's body being inside it's mother's body prior to birth does not suggest that there is somehow only one body. I've seen this folly numerous times - pro-abortion folks dismissing a living human being as somehow not alive, not human, or merely a part of another body.

    The bodies of the children we create are not us and they are not our property...

    Yes. That way is to allow women to exercise their reproductive rights.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    We do it all the time with our capital punishment of criminals.

    If I cannot remove unwanted organisms from my body, I do not have control over my body.

    Your craven desire to oppress and control women and girls has been duly noted.

    Please resume your seat in the 7th century; if we need ya, we'll be in touch.

    Thanks, and have a lovely, insemination-free day.

    It kinda depends. The GOP lusts after hispanic voters, and many are devout Catholics. I do not think Americanized hispanics will accept the authoritarian POV on abortion (or euthanasia, etc.) and that they'll reject this control just like 90% of non-hispanic American Catholics have. (But I could be wrong.)

    Personally, I think this is a loser strategy and I wish they had gone down the "fiscal conservative" path instead. I feel completely alienated from the GOP these days and I DO NOT belong over with the Democrats, as I don't think money is magical fairy dust.

    Tis "politically lonely" for people like me these days.

    Gezzzzzzzz, I thought that there was only "One Pat Robertson"...who has daily back and forth conversations with God. Seems the country is full of em. God must love a few and hate a whole bunch of people by not talking to everybody...you know...like a good parent does.

    So many people are claiming to know exactly what God is doing, the reasons God is doing them, and the next thing coming is "How God is Doing what God Does!"

    I'm not a coward - I'm quite direct in my support for human rights. I am a gender equitist. I don't want to "control" anyone.

    If you would, please, have the sort of day that people who perpetuate such ridiculous slander deserve.
