    Re: Is This Going Too Far?

    I don't think so at all. I am pro-life, but that is not my reasoning for no federal funding of abortions. I just don't think government money should be spent towards unnecessary procedures like this. Only if the mother's life is literally in danger would I consider it, but even then I don't like the idea of the government funding medical procedures.

    only problem with that stance is that you are talking about countless procedures.

The abortionist argument of lets keep abortion legal so that mothers do not kill themselves having back ally abortions makes no sense to anyone calling themselves pro-life/anti-abortion. To a pro-lifer/anti-abortionist it is like saying murder should be legal for the sake of the murderer's safety and well being.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well that's because you have this preconceived notion of what you want life to be - and everything you encounter you alter so it'll fit into your ideology.

    Take your "no-gays" adoption view.
    You don't deny that we have more children than are being adopted - but you don't want to expand the pool of families who can adopt yet you do want to add to the pool of children who won't have a home.

    That's because you have a cookie-cutter view: everyone should be straight, everyone should be responsible, men do ABC, women do DEF.

    But that's not reality.

    No matter how much you might want for things to be *your way* - they aren't *your way*

    doesnt matter what your view is in reality, just what people want to PAINT it as,. For some people its easier to argue against what people want to than what actually is.

    I don't believe that at all. We have hetero couples trotting the globe looking for children to adopt. Just why would that be if we had an adequate number of children to adopt right here?

    Children in the US are overlooked all the time and grow up in the foster system.

    People looking to adopt generally want two things: a healthy baby. The longer a child is in the adoption system the less likely it is that they'll be adopted. The more health or physical disorders the child has the more likely it is they will stay in the system.

    People don't want to adopt interracially very often, either.

    And some of the more *rich* people think it's a philanthropic measure to adopt from overseas (like Jolie) - nevermind that there are children close to home who deserve and need their love just as much.

    The system is flawed and biased - and people are people, imperfect and particular. . . and it's sad because a lot of children suffer for it.
