    Well that's interesting. You're going to have to put choicers in that box with us, since most of them have said there should be a limit on how far along a baby should be legally aborted. So, explain to me how they too aren't "anti-choice"?

    We aren't having a problem as a society producing offspring with abortion being legal. Your argument holds no merit.

    Re: Is This Going Too Far?

    I personally think the whole abortion debate is too focused on symptoms and not on causes. If you want to stop 50 million babies from being killed, you should first of all think about how to stop people from getting unwanted pregnancies in the first place, eliminating poverty, increasing sex education and/or abstinence, etc. People like to focus on the most emotionally-charged issues but nobody feels like addressing the root of the problem. Just like immigration, people like to talk about illegals taking away jobs, building fences, increasing ICE raids, but the root of the problem is that Mexico sucks. Nobody seems to be talking about these things, instead just focusing on the surface.

    Or immigrants. Personally I'm not sure if having a kid is such a good idea, maybe I'll change my mind when I get older.

    Yep, the number 1 way to reduce abortions is to increase comprehensive sexual education that is mandatory.

    I beg to differ. We wouldn't be robbing mexico and central america of it's child bearing young if we could produce enough of our own workers. Our immigration problem is a direct result of abortion.

    I don't disagree with you except that sex ed has been going on for a long time now, it just doesn't seem to be helping, does it?

    Oddly, despite being pro-abortion rights, I do not have a problem with the concept of federal funds not being allowed to pay for abortions except under limited circumstances, which is the case now. This though seems to be taking things to a new level.

    So what do you think? Is this taking things too far, or are these proposed new restrictions reasonable?
    The federal government shouldn't be funding medical anything procedures in this sense.
    That should be up to the individual states to decide.
