    Why is this poll anonymous? I would be interested in seeing who voted.

    If you are asking me (since I made the poll) it's because I don't care who votes which way. I just want an honest poll where people feel free to vote without worrying about other people judging them. Not everyone who votes will also participate in the debate. Those who do make it fairly clear where they stand in their thread comments.

    I also added the pro-life option even though their vote doesn't much "count," since we already know most won't look at this as a hypothetical but just another forum for pro-choice bashing. Still, I didn't want people filling up the thread with complaints about not having "their option" posted.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    No, we should be able to bash them for their votes.

    Nope. That isn't in the U.S. Constitution.

    I am not saying that it is fair... but women fought for, won and WANT the right to abortion, and that is good. But it is MORE unfair to force a man to pay for the woman's choice. If a woman, as the one that will be pregnant and face that difficult decision, is pro-life or not positive that she would abort... then she should not be having sex out of a secure relationship or marriage. The guy shouldn't either, really, but she is the one that will be having the baby.

    weren't you paying attention? This was already covered. I said it's not in the Constitution -- I said it was a decision from the U.S.S.C., the body with the privilege of interpreting the Constitution. In that ruling, they said it's a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy.

    That decision renders the authority to allow women the right to an abortion from the Constitution.

    That is the whole thing... they want equality but then ban the man from any. It is hypocritical and selfish. Why the state backs up this crap is beyond me.

    This Opendebate... it is better said than my statement.
