    I can't speak for him, but I can say that I support some form of government action towards helping people in such a situation. There are some interesting programs involving child services, which I think would be quite beneficial in this regard.

    I would say that I am pro-choice. And I do not support federally funding of abortions. I do support funding of Planned Parenthood because they provide far more services than abortions. Having assisted people in obtaining services there, and having never assisted anyone in obtaining an abortion through PP, I can speak pretty authoritatively on that.

    I also think that using the term "terrorist" is an appeal to emotion and renders your argument pretty pointless.

    They will be born and live the life that their parents can manage for it. Do I win something?

    Yes. An award for the most overly simplistic response to a complex question.

    Holy ****, I thought people on the left got upset when they were accused of wanting to hurt the US, but I guess it's just ok to say conservatives want to bring the US to it's knees, huh?

    I would prefer supporting children who NEED the help rather than seeing them murdered...

    Terrorists? seriously?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I believe any organization that offers abortion services should be cut off from federal funding. If Planned Parenthood wants federal funds, they can get out of the baby murder business...
