Why do we need another abortion poll?
Tired of elections being between the lesser of two evils.When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. -Socrates
Probably some of each. Some people truly think that every single life is sacred. Others think that sperm is more important than women are.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
As a non-legal question, is is whether abortion is immoral or a woman's right? And then, again, what exceptions both ways if any.
A viable question is what makes anti-abortion "conservative?" Generally, conservative means limited government, big military, and focus on self reliance individually than collectivism.
How does any of that lead to anti-abortion?
The media as SOOOO neatly divided all politics into 3 camps - conservative, liberal and kooks - with exactly the list of what each one then must be - that people have actually have come to accept that list as real and accurate.

The procedure and issue has a valid and perfectly acceptable name: abortion. If one wanted to be accurate, albeit wordy, about it, the two sides would be "pro legalized abortion" and "anti legalized abortion". Now, if we were all adults about it... hold on, I'm sorry, I have to do something... ... there, that's better... anyway, if we were all adults about it we could shorten those to "pro-abortion" and "anti-abortion", and know that they mean in the legal sense, with no down-the-rabbit-hole meaning beyond that. *sigh* Alas, those who like the euphemisms aren't interested in accuracy.
I personal think it should be up to the mother. She's the one that has to go thru the pregnancy and actually give birth. Why would anyone else have the right to tell her what she should or shouldn't have to go thru in life. I know some of the choices that we've seen made are not pretty but as sick as it is they are the ones that have to live with their choices and suffer the consequences of their choices. I think we should work towards how it should be and deal with the sad cases as we have too.
I think all the time and effort spent in debating and lobbying and stepping on individual rights should be spent on educating these girls and showing them what they cause ppls lives to be like when then make the different decisions. Give them something to do rather allow them to simply follow their desires. Should parents allow kids to eat and eat until they are so fat they can barely walk? No, the government has stopped parents from being parents and kids just follow their desires rather than learn a little before they hit life hard and end up in the gutter.
