    Against/not against.

    This will be an open poll. That way we can just discard all anonymous votes.

    One question, two subjects.

    1: Are you against/not against TSA body scanners?

    2: Are you against/not against abortion?

    Why?

    There will be no "other" option as quite frankly I don't care about "other" options. This thread is not about "other" options.

    Re: Against/not against.

    To quote my brother in law, who flies on average 100 times a year:

    "if some one gets off seeing my junk, but it makes it safer to fly, I am OK with him getting off."

    I assume you mean not against a right to abortion, which is slightly different from how you phrased it. I support the right to have an abortion.

    Re: Against/not against.

    The body scanners don't make it any safer to fly. We're no safer now than we were on September 10th, but we're a lot more afraid and a lot more willing to tolerate inconveniences and intrusions.

    It would be cheaper, safer, and more efficient if we just gave every passenger their own box cutter and faced the reality that we're going to lose a plane every once in a while. It's still safer than driving.

    Re: Against/not against.

    I am actually against this poll, since it's worded oddly and one thing seems to have little to do with another. I think I'll see how this plays out before I decide whether or not to join the game.

    Couldn't you have added fluoridation as well. Just think how much more confusing it would be.

    I get the premise, though I think it's a bit of a stretch.

    Makes more sense than the current cluster**** that passes for airport "security".

    Not sure what they have to do with each but I will answer. I am against TSA scanners and I am against abortion except in the case where multiple pro-life doctors have confirmed that a vaginal birth or c-section at 40% viability will result in the death of the mother.

    As for why. The TSA scanners are virtual strip searches and therefore a violation of the 4th amendment. I am against abortion because I believe that a baby in the womb deserves the same legal protection and right to life as anyone outside the womb.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
