    Re: Should the U.S. give foreign aid to countries that fund abortion?

    One would like to think our foreign policy/aid wouldn't fall prey to the domestic abortion conundrum.

    But then again, I had felt the same assuredness about climate change policy.

    Never underestimate the power of stupid.

    Of course I voted NO. My self interest is that one of those unborn might be the person who cures cancer, or writes a great best selling book I might want to read, or who makes the scientific discovery that saves the planet. I fully understand that your self interest is different than mine. I understand where you're coming from. We don't need any more thugs or hungry kids running around. We KNOW what they turn into........

    Rather, I'm thinking we should defund states that ban abortions.
    Men do what they have to when they want to, Great men do what they have to, even when they don't want to.

    That old cliche?

    I think we discussed this already: there is just as much chance that those aborted would be Hitler as Einstein. They would range all over the spectrum of good and bad and basically it would all balance out neutrally. Just as many bad as good but the vast majority average people.

    So you're 'reason' is based on a foundation of sand.

    So you would put our country's best interests behind more unwanted and unaffordable kids around the world? That's...sweet.

    I would put our countries best interest behind life instead of death. Maybe give away fewer fighter planes, tanks, artillery, and bombs and give away more day care centers and build more schools? How's that sound?

    That's not the topic.

    I'm not really interested in your foreign relations plans.

    No we shouldn't give foreign aid to countries that fund abortion. But then again I think we shouldn't give any foreign aid to any country when we have our own problems to worry about and debt to pay off.
    "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

    well i have many opinions about foreign aid, pros and cons, support and against BUT the country funding abortion would never be a disqualify by itself thats just retarded. Actually a "similar" opposite would be a good reason not to give aid, if they are a country against womans and human rights.
