So this is a fun topic:
Everybody loves talking about abortion, right?
Abortion is wrong in any trimester, even the first.
Unless the mother is a victim of rape, incest, or it endangers the mother.
I think that life begins at conception. It's no secret that I'm not exactly "religious", so you can take that out of the equation. I feel as though there is never an "excess" of human life - that no human life, or POTENTIAL of human life, is expendable. You don't have to be religious to still believe in the sanctity of human life.
Maybe you're asking yourself, "Well, John wants the government to stay out of our lives as much as possible, why does he think that a governing body a thousand miles away has any control over our bodies?"
Well, that's an excellent question. I don't buy into the supreme court ruling Roe vs. Wade that says the Constitution gives a woman "privacy" for personal issues. The Constitution says no such thing. So, then, you start looking for Core Democratic Values. You are directly violating that embryo's right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Partial Birth Abortion
Partial birth abortion sickens me. Currently banned in the United States, Barack Obama wishes to lift the ban on partial birth abortion. If you're not informed on how this type of abortion is carried out, let me quickly inform you with as little detail as possible.
First, the woman is put into labor prematurely, around 21-22 weeks (5 months). They pull the baby out feet first, while leaving the head inside. They take fore snips to the head, open it, and remove the brains with a suction tube. I realize that was less than vague, but it's extremely tortuous and horrific. Again, Obama supports to lift the ban on this.
This practice, known as infanticide, might be even more gruesome than partial birth abortion. This is downright murder. At 21-22 weeks, again, the woman is put into premature labor. The baby is born (completely throwing out the liberal belief saying when a baby is born it now has human rights), and then left in the biohazard material room to die. They literally leave the newborn in a basket of soiled linens to die.
Barack Obama voted to keep this practice 3 separate times in the Illinois state legislature. To give you an idea how radically liberal Obama is on this, the US Senate voted on the same bill and voted it down unanimously 98-0. Senators such as John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, JOE BIDEN, and even Harry Reid voted this down.
I don't expect that I have more than one or two readers left, especially since Aunt Carrie and Dad are about the only ones who read any of my blogs anymore due to lack of political interest - but I don't really care. Your passion is your passion, and I'm not afraid to talk about things people don't want to hear about.
