    And no, it's not being considerate. It's being American.

    Well if you take that stance then we can't spend tax money on anything because there is nothing 100% of us agree on.

It comes down to personal responsibility and the concept that the general tax payer is not and should not be responsible to pay for two individuals mistakes or misdeeds.

    What about that concept is confusing you?
    I can appreciate that you want to see a woman punished for choosing to have sex, but this thread is about rape. This is NOT "two individuals mistakes or misdeeds." Our society has failed to protect the woman/girl, now some want to not even pay for the abortion to set things right again. And again, this is only for POOR women, this is not for the general population.

    I appreciate you point. However, I didn't get to vote for the roe v wade decision. This is a question of whether the federal government represents it's citizens, or not. I don't want my monies used for abortion.

    In this case, it both represents its citizens and does not represent its citizens which falls back to my original point. Nobody (except for a dictator) has the luxury of forcing society to be what they want it to be, the best we can do is fight for our beliefs and convince others of the rightness of it.

    Now you see the problems inherent with multi-culturalism.

    And this is an issue that belongs to the states, not the Federal government. Live in Mississippi and want abortion? Move to California. Live in California and don't want to pay for a woman's abortion? Move to Mississippi. It's that simple.

    The way our system works, you weren't supposed to vote for that, the SCOTUS is a vital part of our counties system of government.
