I don't get it, why are Republicans so obsessed with telling other people what they can or cannot due with their own bodies and lives?

Re: I don't get it, why are Republicans so obsessed with telling other people what they can or cannot due with their own bodies and lives?
because they're "small government"
and government should say what people do with their bodies
we should not leave judgments up to god, afterall
because apparently they think it's their job to do the judging and tell people what they can/cannot do with free will

many are christians yet support unending wars and death of children overseas because they live in fear (not faith)
i often wonder how much "faith" a person can really have and how many could look jesus in the eye knowing what they've supported with their money and votes
one only has to look at the pictures of blown up children in foreign lands to see the harm that has been caused
but they're too busy giving their money to pedophiles and supporting murder to notice i guess

or they're just a bunch of hypocrites

I'm so sick of politics, but it seems like the rallying cry for Republicans is always to end abortions and stop gay marriage. Why do you care so much what I do with my own body and with my life? If you don't want an abortion, don't get one! If your a man and don't want to marry another man, than don't, but stop telling me what I can and cannot do with my own life!!! You may all be using your religious views as the basis for your beliefs and willingness to take away the personal rights of every individual in the US, but you need to remember, America is a melting pot of DIFFERING religions ethnicity's, and points of view. That is why our founding fathers came here, to start a new and better country and way of life. Why are you so willing to throw that away???

My parents married in 1960 after my mom got pregnant with my older sister. They got married because abortion was not an option. If abortion was common and encouraged, (it will be encouraged once it is legal and commonplace) it is likely I would not have a sister. Heck I may not even be here because my parents may not have married if there wasn't pressure to to marry. I wonder if in 1960 abortion was a easy way out how many people would not be around today? It is very easy to make a rash decision and abort a baby. Once it is done there is no reset button.

iow, they're fascists at heart
who don't trust god to do the judging and sorting
they have god complexes themselves
but they are nothing like god
as the way they wish to supplant god is actually pretty evil
while smiling and saying they love jesus
they support deaths of children
stealing of rights
destruction of free will
pedophilia
subjugation
they do all this as they live in fear
not faith
and the fear they feel is because, deep down, they know their path is NOT in alignment with god's will but their own preferences
so they show their fear but lashing out at everyone else
they combat their own fears about themselves by projecting them on to everyone else
what you see are their own fears/hearts on display
when they lash out at everyone else
tell me again where in the US the highest porn usage is?
oh, that's right

they participate in the degradation of women
while proclaiming mary was perfect in her virginity
and jesus couldn't be married...

With that said, who am I to legislate my morality? Just because I am against it doesn't mean there should be a law outlawing abortion. We should get people to come to this conclusion on their own, by brining back morality, empathy and compassion.

If the people lack the morality to protect life, then making laws to outlaw abortion will in the long run have negative effects. We must change the culture not the laws.
 Quoting: *Evan*


Unfortunately, you could say the same about murder.

There will be some people who want to kill, should we just try to "educate" them and hope they don't do it?

It needs to be outlawed.

Then the argument is made, "But what about all those kids?"

Then let's contribute funds to contraception, education, abstinence, prevention. We waste billions on all sorts of shit, we can't direct resources to help educate people from having children?

And if we have to, institute a one or two child policy, if it gets to that point.

Yes, there will be back alley abortions and lots of unwanted kids -- society will have to adjust and deal with it.

Killing off your problems because it's easier isn't the answer.
 Quoting: Super Bowl Dave


Society as a whole agrees murder is wrong. That's what I am talking about, our culture is against murder.

Plus murder isn't anyones right because it infringes on another human beings right....we can't even come to the conclusion that it's a "human baby" inside a mother. Half the country considers it a lump of cells.

Those are not comparable IMO

You may call it a non human "clump of cells" but look at the psychological damage many woman face after getting an abortion. Even tho they are pro choice, and always have been...many still suffer from long term psych damage because of having an abortion.

The elite's greatest victory was convincing the slaves that killing their own offspring was acceptable.

Saves them the effort.

 Quoting: *Evan*


I tend to agree on some level, it is a moral issue, but it is also a financial issue. We live in a world that requires money to eat and house yourself. If you can't afford a child what do you do? Get on welfare? Live in poverty? Aren't those also moral imperatives? You would rather a person live in poverty, a child no less, than allow abortions? I think they are sad and a horrible choice, there should be alternatives like sex education in high schools and free birth control so people don't have to resort to killing their unborn child, but we don't have that either, so what are the options???
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26849823


I never had sex ed in school, but sure knew where babies came from, and how to prevent this.

One can make any excuse they want for doing the most horrible of things.

As someone said earlier, women suffer from psych issues after abortions, because despite the media propaganda, their subconcious KNOWS what they did is an abomination.

Jesus said that the only things God does not forgive is knowing God's love and turning your back on it and misleading children. Promoting the death of children puts you at great risk of severe consequences. To be fair I support fair choice. Flip a coin and let fate decide. Heads the baby lives. Tails the host lives.

You have been brainwashed. True conservatives believe the Federal Goverment has absolutely no business in either case. Particularly the maraige issue.

The abortion issue is a moral debate regarding when life begins and you will find conservatives opposing the ending of a human life. But again, it's an issue better left to the States.

You may all be using your religious views as the basis for your beliefs and willingness to take away the personal rights of every individual in the US, but you need to remember, America is a melting pot of DIFFERING religions ethnicity's, and points of view. That is why our founding fathers came here, to start a new and better country and way of life. Why are you so willing to throw that away???

You have been brainwashed. True conservatives believe the Federal Goverment has absolutely no business in either case. Particularly the maraige issue.

The abortion issue is a moral debate regarding when life begins and you will find conservatives opposing the ending of a human life. But again, it's an issue better left to the States.

I'm not brainwashed, I actually pay very close attention to what BOTH sides are saying so I can make an informed decision. I don't associate with any party, but support the person who I believe is the best choice for the greater good of our country, if I thought it would be a republican I would support them. Perhaps most conservatives feel the way you do, and I believe it, however, you are supporting someone who has expressed some extreme points of view, and by choosing one of the MOST extreme and right winged running mate, Romney is making a statement about the choices he will make if elected to office.

I'm a Republican. I don't care what you do. Just don't use my tax dollars for your pleasures and mistakes. Whats so hard to understand.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27032728


i can agree with that
at the same time, don't use my money for wars that kill children in other lands or to subsidize corporations or for a police state that shreds our constitution
thank you


this is why the income tax is unconstitutional
it forces people to pay for things they do not morally support
which, of course, also keeps the country divided
but neither "party" is truly small government enough to recognize this
and they both want to find ways to spend the public's money on the things they "believe" in
so round and round we go
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26989617


Democrats Biden and Bama voted for the Patriot act, and Dems like Schumer and Jerusalem Joe Lieberman pushed NDAA--and Biden was all for Saddam's WMD excuse and the phony "blame Bin Laden(who Carter and Reagan called a "freedom fighter" when we armed him and his boys as a proxy army against the Soviets)--they are no better than the warwhore repubs

You're right, and I wasn't going to vote for him again until Romney/Ryan became the other choice, it's the lesser of two evils in my opinion and it stinks that we have to be put in this position in the first place.
