    It seems like you do.
    I appreciate Mark's assistance, but I think I can handle this. Point out precisely where I said that. Use a quote box, so you can directly quote where I said that in one of my posts.

    My use of the phrase 'it seems like' should have been an indications to you that it's a gut feeling,... one that I can't put my finger on.

    As such, I asked a question for clarification instead of making a comment or drawing a conclusion.

    OK, then the answer to your question is a negative. Of course one would have to define what doing everything possible (within reason) would be. I wonder if our opinions on that would differ.

    The Catholic Church is uncomfortable with their inability to adequately address a theological basis for "LIMBO"; and has put it in "LIMBO".


    WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR 'ORIGINAL SIN'; BABY?


    IT MEANS YOU can ABORT THAT DOWNES BABY-SARA-and write a book instead!!!


    RAPE and abortion-WELL LESS THAN 1%-so NICE TRY-too. .

    Yes, reluctently of course but only as long as the abortion is done within the first trismester.

    The United States Supreme Court has ruled that 'personhood' begins at conception and that children while in the womb have a 14th Amendment right to their lives, due process and equal protection under the law.

    The Constitution remains as it is currently worded.

    Would you demand and support an exception to the ban for cases where a woman was raped and she becomes pregnant?
    I would agree to the rape exception in order to get the ban on the books, then I would work to remove the exception.

    This is how Obama'Care is working with regards to single-payer, btw.

    Thanks Jerry, I was wondering how long it would take for someone to propose this.

    And,... for all the validity the arguments against the rape exception have,... (just so you know) I will still be fighting to defend a woman's right to abort (if she so chooses) in the event that the pregnancy is a direct result from her being raped.
