Its a pretty good bet that you will find people willing to debate issues in here. I don't agree with everyone, its always been my policy that they have every right to be wrong, but its usually a good and honest discussion.
No one supports abortions.
To ask a question in that fashion is like asking"do you like killing everyone or only babies?"
Abortion is horrible and I think everyone agrees.
I cant remember anyone ever posting a visit to the clinic on their face book status with the caption...woo hoo better then VEGAS!!!
but to make them illegal would do no good.
people with money would simply fly to where they could get them, people without money would turn them over to the state.
then we would need orphanages,and all the associated costs of raising whole generations of unwanted children who studies have shown will have worlds of issues from the experience, all so we could hold up one in one thousand that succeeds and say "see it worked out just fine for this kid", meanwhile by our own laws we have 10 times more drug addicrs, rapists,sociopathic murderers etc, etc to deal with.
when you see "behind the Music" or any shows like that you often here..."we were very poor, we went hungry sometimes, had to share tennis shoes, but there was a lot of Love in the home....
its never the other way around..
No one loved me, or payed attention to me, but it was cool becasue I had food and toys and everything else I needed(LOl).
even if you mthink its wrong, even if you think its evil,,,its a necessary evil IMO.
No idea why you would think the poll would sway one way more than the other. Abortion is an issue that really will always split people. Truthfully abortion will probably always be a 50-50 split.
Like I said in my post on the other page... Abortion is the single greatest wedge issue in politics.
It's essentially used to dominate the election cycle for a period of time so the candidates don't have to have opinions on things that actually matter. If they just left abortion up the states the division over the issue wouldn't much matter. The fact the federal government subjects us to a 1 size fits all approach causes people to be incredibly divided on the issue because they're forced one way or another to live with the fed's decision.
I haven't voted in this and won't. I do not have an opinion and honestly don't care or think it's at all important. I grew up adamantly pro-choice but eventually my perspective changed as I began to understand the pro-lifers argument. I personally do not care what is done with abortion I just don't think it's something the federally government has any business dictating to the states.
