    My daughtre had an abortion. Abortion is legal so she did not commit murder. When abortion becomes illegal again, and it will, then the law will be enforced and if my daughter chooses to break the law and murder her unborn child she should suffer the consequinces. That does change a thing about my love for her. She now knows that she made a mistake aborting her child.

    Congrats. With no sarcasim toward you, I applaud you knowing the exact definition of murder. Too many of those who claim to be pro life don't.

    Female casualties constitute less than 2% of the total dead and wounded in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. The percentage is much smaller for female casualties of past U.S wars. This is called statistically insignificant (a term a feminist once used when arguing with me over about the percentage of battered women vs. the percentage of battered men in this country.) Do you honestly believe that if women were allowed to serve in front line combat operations tomorrow, it would change the fact that the vast majority of U.S military personnel killed and wounded are men?

    No - it wouldn't change - woudl increase but female statistics wouldn't start to outnumber male statistics, that's just not possible because there would still be far less women than men in combat situations.

    I know the statistics - every war is different. The reasons for deaths in this war, for example: aren't all due to combat situations. They're in combat zones: but not necessary due to mechanics of war . . . heatstroke, for example, is quite common in the Middle East.

    Thus: wars in the past were in different arenas - and had different factors behind the death statistics. So on: so forth.

    We could also look at non-fatal casualty statistics as well: not all men, for example, are injured due to the mechanics of war. Like my husband. . . that was a pure lack of personal care.

    Would this change? No - because overall less women are in the forces. It's just that simple.

    If it was reversed and women far outnumbered men in the forces then, yes - the numbers would reverse.

    Consider the number of male VS female nurses who were killed in WWII: male nurses were killed far less. . . purely because there were less of them.

    Please learn what words and phrases mean. Statistically significance has jack **** to do with what you seem to think it does. Also, thank you for ****ting on the thousands of women who have died in service of this country.

    Let's see a link to that. Abortion was stopped because of the procedural damage to women and had nothing to do with the unborn. So I would like to see your supporting evidence.

    It will never be illegal again. Ever.

    Say Happy Holidays: WAR ON CHRISTMAS! OMFG!

    Create entire laws designed to be against the sexual reproduction of women: Nothing to see here.

    The Right wing continues it's selective appreciation of the word "war".

    What laws against "the sexual reproduction of women" are being designed? What does that even mean? Is the right now forcing birth control on women?
