    If it's wrong to spend tax dollars of people who oppose abortion on abortion, isn't it equally as wrong to spend dollars of people who oppose war on wars?

    We, as citizens, have no right to determine what our tax dollars are used for. We elect representatives who have that right and it is they, not us, who determines if tax dollars can be spent for war, roads, bridges, Social security, abortion or just to waste it on useless studies.

    So the Republicans are wrong when they say it's immoral to tax a pro-life supporter to pay for abortions? Note that I don't know whether you're a Republican, Democrat, or otherwise, so I'm not trying to say you're a hypocrite or what have you.

    I think that the essence of the argument against the use of tax dollars for abortion is that tax dollar should NOT be used for elective medical procedures and limited only to neccessary procedures.

    Pregnancy is not an unhealthy medical condition. It is not a sickness or disease. It is a perfectly normal and healthy condition.

    There's more justification for spending tax dollars on nose jobs than on abortion.

    This has nothing to do with whether abortion should be legal or not.

    Of course the fact is that tax dollars are not spent on abortion. Tax dollars are given to organizations that provide a very wide variety of medical procedures and have a very large sponsership in addition to the government.

    So it could be said that they do not spend the money that they get for the government to provide abortions, they spend the money given by other doners to provide abortions.

    I wonder if they provide nose jobs? Should tax dollars be spent on nose jobs?

    Do you understand the difference between killing the unborn and National defense?

    What part of the Constitution provides for spending tax dollars on abortions?

    Not how it works. The Constitution and Amendments say what the Government can't do. So actually, where does it say in the Constitution that they can't spend tax dollars on abortions?

    If the term "enumerated powers" means nothing to you then you are simply too stupid to respond to.
