    Late Clash on Abortion Shows Conservatives’ Sway

    Excerpted from “Late Clash on Abortion Shows Conservatives’ Sway” By JENNIFER STEINHAUER, The New York Times, Published: April 8, 2011
    The emergence of abortion as the last and most contentious of the issues holding up a budget deal highlighted the enduring influence of social conservatives within the Republican Party even at a time when the Tea Party movement’s focus on fiscal austerity is getting most of the attention. …
    The most radical social conservative elements, really terrorists amongst us, have tried to bring America to its knees. They failed but they were far too close to succeeding.

    Terrorists? I don't support federal funding of abortions either. I suppose I am one as well...
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Um yeah I don't really think being even radically anti-abotion is at all equivalent to terrorism.

    The Pro-abortion(those who advocate that abortion be legal) crowd claims that no federal tax money is used for abortion.So why are pro-abortion democrats making a big stink out of this?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Are you ok with our tax dollars going towards welfare, WIC and other social programs that support these non-aborted "babies" until they are 18?

    I'm not. Which is why we need to cut off those wastes of my tax dollars, too.

    Two words: Kansas City. Anti-abortion terrorism.

    This year they attempted to assassinate Planned Parenthood but they failed.

    So, anyone that opposes tax money going to pay for abortions is equal to an abortion clinic bomber?

    Do you realize how stupid you sound?

    But hey, if you support state funded eugenics, more power to yuz.

    Using a few radicals as representation for the norm is intellectually dishonest.

    We need to step back from the cliff here. No one is a terrorist, devil, or a nazi. Let's try and have logical discussion.
