    No. Can't be done.

    The Left refuses to admit that abortion is the wilful destruction of human life.

    Until they can face the facts of the matter, they will continue to respond to the issue with the hatred and vituperation they expend on all their issues.
    I agree the left is da evilist.

    Seeing as a majority of Americans are somewhere in the middle ground concerning views on abortion, I don't thing most people get passionate enough about the issue to truly degrade it to a personal one.

    Do you think those people in the middle are put off the discussion by the heated nature of those on each extreme?

    Sorry Redress - Here I'll get it back on topic :

    He is and he isn't. As long as the majority of people behind the pro-life movements are Fundamentalist Christians then this will never be argued civilly. They simply do not care about people who do not follow their religious beliefs. Their argument is imposing. Instead of giving people the right to chose they argue that pro-choice means pro-abortion. Obama did get that the POVs are opposing.

    Who here can say that abortion as a form of birth control is a morally wrong choice?

    Who here can say that abortion as a form of birth control is a morally right choice?

    Then say why or why not.

    I can.

    A woman that don't want to be pregant has the freedom to choose to abstain from sexual acts that permit the egg to become thoroughly acquainted with a sperm.

    If they mess up, it's not the baby's fault, it's theirs.

    It's not rocket science.

    Abortion kills a living human.

    Then again, I'm a complete atheist.

    So much for your argument.
