    Making 70 cents for every dollar a man makes is something that should be stopped don't you think?

    Even more abstract are the underlying issues that serves as the boiling pot for abortion, which are; Zygotes, Embryos, and Fetuses.

    Your "poll" is but one more way of framing the question that has created screaming matches in DP over whether or not ZEF's should be allowed to be aborted because of differing perspective on questions like "viability", "personhood", "human", etc.

    The topic is a never ending revolving door. The tug of war between Moralists and Constitutionalists will never go away.

    The S.C. has made a ruling (the law of the land), which lays out the parameters of the abortion do's and dont's. In all likelihood, the standing ruling by the S.C. isn't going to be overturned because it is tied to other important privacy decisions and would strike those down as well.

    Most Churches have voiced their objections.

    Many individuals who have voiced their objections or approvals - have weighed in.

    At this point-in-time, given standing laws. Individual beliefs are even less likely to have enough influence to have Congress to create a Constitutional Amendment that prohibits abortion than to get the S.C. to overturn the standing ruling.

    Question:

    So how do you want to see this thread evolve beyond YES - NO - UNSURE?

    Respectfully Yours,

    Whether or not its human is irrelevant. Personhood is the actual issue.

    You have no idea what you're talking about.

    This is the guy who said that society is decaying because men are no longer dominating women.

    when this order is disregarded like it is now? you see what happens. moral decay. social disintegration and chaos. the destruction
    of the family unit. if any woman would EVER kill my child behind my back....whether born or unborn.....she better be willing to pay
    quite the high price for that action. she'd be lucky to be alive afterwards.
    Give me a break.

    Abortion is only justified to save the life of a mother.

    ok, although she may exist, her life may not be worth living if other people force her to continue an unwanted pregnancy despite her protests.
