Federal Funding of Abortion

The Senate’s version of healthcare reform will be weak on abortion, if not blatantly fund it. According to CNN research poll, 61% of Americans are opposed to federal funding of abortion, however Harry Reid and his cronies don’t care.

Why is federal funding of abortion wrong?

Imagine if you will a Republican majority in Congress that decided federal funds should be used to prevent homosexual couples from adopting children. Republicans are generally opposed to homosexuals being allowed to adopt, and Democrats are generally supportive of it. Democrat’s conscience tells them that this is discrimination and that it’s wrong, and they CERTAINLY shouldn’t have THEIR tax dollars going towards such an initiative.

Hmmmmmm.

Republicans, and more importantly, Christians, believe that abortion is murder of a baby. In fact, ALL scientific fact and evidence supports this belief. There is not one single scientific argument that could ever be used to prove that a “fetus” is NOT a baby. Separate blood types, DNA, heartbeats, brainwaves… fetuses don’t share any of those things with the mother. It’s a seperate entity. And by genetic definition, it is HUMAN. If it’s a seperate HUMAN entity scientifically speaking, then how can anyone think it’s ok to kill?

Well, that’s irrelevant to the Democrats, because they’ve made it a PRIVACY issue, something that has virtually nothing to do with anything. We can’t prevent abortion because that violates the mother’s privacy? What? So by that logic we shouldn’t be allowed to prevent animal cruelty or serial killing so long as it’s occurring on private property.

Regardless, abortion goes against the conscience of a MAJORITY of Americans. THUS, we shouldn’t have to PAY for it.

End of argument.

Whatever else can be said about the foolhardy healthcare reform bills they are planning to vote on at 1:00 AM the week before Christmas when everyone’s asleep (hmmm again), we can say for sure that it will change our country forever.

Those of you who are for it, are you REALLY confident that this cloak-and-dagger bill is going to make things BETTER?

    but gov'e money DOES go to people who want to reduce, prevent, or remove any rights i have. who's gonna stop

    and, not to say this is the "correct" approach or attitude, but all of your arguments about a fetus being a separate life equate to something similar: Parasitism. again, not saying this is a correct viewpoint, just throwing it out

    You are correct that parasites share those traits. However, there's one major distinction – parasites aren't HUMAN genetically speaking. And as to your first point, I agree comple

    Incredipete,

    I’m 100% against ObamaCare. I was at the beginning and I still am now. This was never about reform, even though that’s how this issue has been framed since the beginning. For Obama and most Democrats this is about power, control, making names for themselves and getting a bigger piece of the pie. This won’t be the first socialist program in our nation’s history but it will certainly be the most destructive.

    After all, why would they ram this thing through Congress like they have? There’s been very little transparency or real debate and it’s quite clear the majority of Americans don’t want this, never even asked for it in the first place. What was really needed was more time, more discussions and more bipartisanship to achieve a bill with real reforms, one that could have been confidently presented to Americans without haste. Alas, we’re now faced with the imminent approval of the schlock called ObamaCare.

    For the record, I’m against abortion. This part of the bills should have been more transparent (like everything else in those bills). They *do* cover abortions but only … ONLY … in the case of incest, rape or when the mother’s life is threatened. These are rare and dire circumstances indeed but nonetheless it’s important to take them into account. There’s truly no easy answer for this but it’s certainly easy to say ‘tough luck’ to those women who are burdened with any one of those three realities.

    If the ‘murder’ of a fetus is so abhorrent, then surely the murder of others in war is equally appalling. Murder of another living human being, no matter what age, nationality, creed or race, is still murder. If one is opposed to abortion, then one must logically oppose war and capital punishment too.

    McMichael, I agree with many of your points. I am personally an anti-war conservative (a bit of a dichotomy).

    However, I am pro death penalty, and here’s why. Unlike cases of unprovoked wars and abortion, people who are sentenced to the death penalty have done heinous things that resulted in the death of at least one person, usually several. No fetus has ever committed a heinous act.

    I am not “pro-life” as in “all life is equally qualified to continue living.” I’m anti-killing-babies. I don’t think that’s at odds with my pro death penalty stance. In both cases, I am pro victim.

    Fine, I still stand by the position that if you believe that the baby is human, you must oppose abortion, since it must then be murder. If you believe that it is not a baby, you should honestly face the fact that you cannot defend your position with any evidence and are just choosing to believe that so that you can support abortion. I support your right to be wrong, but stop asking others to pay for what they consider to be m

    I’m glad you touched on the semantics of ‘pro-life’. I strongly believe pro-life and pro-choice are total misnomers and they should stop being used. Neither term accurately describes what either camp really stands for. It should really be pro-abortion and anti-abortion. It seems like you were essentially saying the same thing.

    I completely understand how conflicted a Christian may feel about war and capital punishment. I feel conflicted about it myself. I for one believe in justice and peace but I also know these are often not attainable or sustainable without punishment and war. It’s a tough pill to swallow.

    I should qualify my remark about being anti-war. I am anti-war EXCEPT in self defense. If another country invades the United States, you can believe I will defend my turf…

    And yes, the semantics are important. I still think the easiest way to state my position is to say that I am unequivocally pro-victim.
