"The United States accepts no preconditions for Syria relinquishing the chemical weapons it used against civilians in recent attacks. Either Assad makes the right decision and gives up his illegal, indiscriminate weapons, or he continues down the path of ignoring international law and the will of the world community. If so, the U.S. will use force to punish him, and to send a message to other tyrants who would use illegal weapons. You will not get away with it."
My suggested text of a speech Obama will never give.
The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.
