Interesting discussion going on here...
Personally, I think that abortion is wrong. But I also think denying women the right to choose to have or not have an abortion is wrong.
So I'm stuck. In the middle. Agreeing with no one.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
You do not have a right to offend. Certainly they do. They're a black spot on society. I live in society, no? Correct, so much so that they should be as far removed from my community as my fellow members of the community see fit.
Correct, that is why social issues must be localized. Not one size fits all blanket over the nation.
Correct, as you aren't entitled to set up little death camps where ever you please.
As a Federal law, I believe it is a mistake, as a State law I believe it is a mistake -- either for or against.
The interesting thing here is that for eons counties in certain states have been known to be "Dry". That is, no liquor can be bought or sold within county lines. No one ever seems to be up in arms about this, but yet if you try to use the same principles with abortion, allowing or disallowing something as egregious as this to fall within the county level of government's purview than everyone wants to talk about choice, and it is a great oppression that can't be allowed. (notice I was making a comparative argument over the principles and not abortion v. liquor)
It is a case where you want to have your ideology spread far and wide, not taking into account other people's attitudes, feelings, and beliefs.
So again, you are just as much trying to force your attitude and beliefs on others as you claim that others are doing to you. Which is why this and every other social issue must be localized.
