    It's sad when partisan politics get in the way of American values.

    What value? The district was never intended to have a residential population, that land came from Maryland, so I say, retun it to which it came, maryland would gain a congressional seat and an electoral vote. It it not an American value that the nations capital have senators, that was specifically rejected in the constitution

    There's lots of areas of the country that would like their own state as well. Maybe we can make a new state out of pieces of upstate New York that will trend republican at the same time as making DC a state, but no one will go for that deal.

    In addition it would be the only state with no rural population, the number one state for receipt of federal funds, would surpass california as the most impoverished, and would have irregular borders and numerous jurisdictional problems between the "state" and federal authorities

    Just remember that democrats had the house of reps for forty years and DC statehood was never a priority until the 90s when republicans got the senate

    My point - I and others do not see a blastula, foetus or embryo as a human.
    Why would you say that? You do not need religion to realize that the DNA is all set for life, given half a chance. And viability is a pure question of technology. Like you in the voids of Universe do not do well without the gadgets to keep you fed and warm, the littler pile of human material requires a suitable environment. That is the only difference.

    My point - Then you should not find it illegitimate for a majority to find something about you a mark that allows elimination of the bearer.
