    Re: Is President Obama Right in This?

    I don't cede the rights of a state to the Feds ever. It's the only way to preserve any at all. The problems with the proponents of abortion is that they want those against to in part finance something which is abhorent to them. Also, they want to require doctors to perform abortions even though it is the antithesis of the Hippocratic oath and/or is religiously banned. It is an inconvenient truth that a viable fetus with a heartbeat is life. That inconvience is not reason to end that constitutionally guaranteed life.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.--Thomas Jefferson

    The intent of my post was not to take sides on the issue, at least not at this time. I was attempting to show that this particular debate is split almost straight down the center. No matter how often one side shouts "it's murder" because they define human murder as the destruction of a few cells the other side isn't gonna buy it because murder for them requires a degree of self awareness (and I don't mean just the potential for awareness either) .

    Yes this is an oversimplification, but it is one of the main reasons why the two sides can never come to a compromise.

    Was that a misspelling or a clever play on words?

    I'm sorry--I was teasing you.
