There you go, it's never been about the sanctity of life at all. It's a political tool to keep their sheeple distracted from the real humanitarian issues out there. PS and how many rabid "pro-lifer" embraced the destruction we brought to the innocent civilians and neighborhoods of Iraq. etc., etc.

I think it’s more complex than that. If this were about adults only, then I do agree with the Repub pro-lifer. If your religion says X and X doesn’t harm others, then whatever. I even admire some of these Christian nutjobs who take their beliefs so seriously, for example those Snake Handlers. They believe so much that they put their life on the line and ONLY their life (though I suppose if they’re sole supporters of their family it’s different, but you get my point). Of course this has to do with children who obviously don’t have a choice in the matter, which then yes, makes this an easy case and the pr-lifer has it wrong.

I have a tough time accepting anyone so arrogant as to believe they actually understand and communicate with “God.”
Seems the ultimate of egotism gone berserk.

Oh I agree. It IS arrogant and Christianity in general is selfish...what good can I do to score points so as to increase my chances of getting into heaven?
