    No sane person would deny that abortion is ugly and traumatic, and I've never met anyone who is pro-abortion. However, I know lots of folks who are pro-choice.

    Who has priority: Mother or fetus? Roe v. Wade gives the mother priority. Anti-choice zealots want to give the fetus priority.

    What say you?

    Republicans have been against abortion in the case of rape since 1976.

    Now we are shocked, shocked I say that gambling is going on in here.

    Sheer idiocy and ignorance.

    And hypocrisy.

    What happened to ‘let the states decide’? Supporters of this ‘amendment’ seek to expand the power of the Federal government and diminish our civil rights. It would seem local communities are allowed to enact measures representative of their values only when such measures conform to rightist dogma.

    Not a good idea for our cities. Maybe we could give out free birth control for all within certain liberal strong holds?

    And Flipper Romney will preside over this convention and this craziness! If that is a plank, then I don't see how Romney could possibly win.

    I believe Singers goal was right on the money. I do not like Abortion at all, but well the other side of the coin is worse.

    I'd rather there be easy to get birth control throughout the screw everything area's of this country.
