    Where, in the Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independance is this supposed "Right" to choose for women to have an abortion?

    All I see is contrary... In fact, the babies are are killed are promised to be:

    "...endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."


    Abortion removes their Right to Life, Liberty and pursuit of happiness...


    In fact, it's the right of the people to remove such governments which go against those unalienable rights:

    "That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, "

    And the hand grenade rolls across the floor, as the spectators await its destructive power to unleash itself...

    I think it's possible we could see some changes in the whole abortion issue in the next four years. The Laci Peterson Law is also a damn good argument that you ARE taking a life. I would love to see them argue that -any opponents that is. You make a good argumnet cP.

    however legaly your first birthday is not 3 months after you are born but 12 months after you are born....thus you have no rights until you draw your first breath.

    I think the argument lies with the fact that some people don't believe a fetus is an actual human life. I've argued with many of the more vapid ones on the 'net and in life and it amazes me how they tend to view a fetus like a virus. To them, an abortion is no more troublesome than a flu shot.

    The Unalienable rights don't specify that you "have to draw your first breath" to be guaranteed those rights....

    By your arguement, those living on life support wouldn't be guaranteed these rights either...

    If life doesn't begin at conception, then were does it begin? An inanimate object can't just all of a sudden become a human life... it has to start-off that way...

    If they ever actually watched a video of an abortion taken with a Sonogram, they would definitely change their minds. It was one of the most horrific things I have ever seen. But heck, life is at the center of my religion.

    Sure it can! Evolution says so! :D

    I also think that life begins at conception and it astounds me that some folks don't or will attempt to deny that. Stopping a life is just that, let's not sugar coat it.

    On the other hand, I have a dilemma with forcing this viewpoint into law.

    But it's okay to force it into law the other way around as it is now? The way it's setup now goes against our early, Country-forming documents as I outlined above...
