    Abortion must be kept legal - we already pay a huge price for unwanted pregnancies... and that is with abortion legal. Can you imagine how high a price society would pay if abortion was made illegal?

    So you support abortion because of money? If it were cheaper to ban abortions you'd support that? I find that kind of sick.

    I support abortion because government guns are no way to enforce morality in a free country.

    Money isn't the only price society pays for unwanted pregnancies.
    Crime, school systems basically "raising" kids, gangs becoming families for these unwanted kids - and that is just for starters.
    Yes, abortion must be kept free in a free society.

    Didn't read my post, did you?

    Focus...focus...a question.

    ...If...it were more expensive to have abortion legal, would you support legal abortion?

    By more expensive - do you mean more expensive than higher taxes because schools have to teach kids that don't want to learn, the cost of prisons, the cost of greater law enforcement.

    What is the price society pays for greater crime caused by these unwanted kids.

    Ok, I guess if you want a dollar amount - Yes, if a legal abortion cost $400,000 I would still be in favor of keeping it legal.

    Human life has immeasurable worth and value. The worth of a soul is great in the sight of God. So much so that He gave His only begotten Son as a sacrifice to redeem our souls. And He would have done so even if only one person would have accepted that Atonement.

    If God thought we were worth enough to sacrifice His Son for our lives, shouldn't the lives of others and especially of our children be worth even more than it currently is?

    We can fight to end abortion. And Im not talking about outlawing it. Im talking about working hard to make it so that no one wants an abortion. That all children are welcome and accepted. Fighting just to outlaw it is not the proper path.

    Exactly, so money isn't your issue, is it? I support abortion because I support freedom. I don't make nonsense arguments about it like you do that have nothing to do with my position. That was what I was demonstrating.

    The left have an issue because you don't support freedom, so when you want to make arguments regarding freedom, you have to come up with tactics like you did. Use arguments that have nothing to do with your view...to justify your view...

    Bravo. I support legal abortion, but I've made the argument for a long while that if the two sides would stop arguing over how government should use it's guns to regulate morality and band together to end the need for abortions then they would accomplish so much more for both their objectives.
