And not all Christians counter pro-choice with the argument that God said so.Guess what, not all Republicans are god fearing christians. Some of us don't believe in god and we're not superstitious either.
I'm guessing the correct answer, the answer you are looking for is, "Abortion".
Now, with that said I'll have to disagree with you.
I don't agree with you that a fetus is a human being. I don't believe that an aborted fetus is another human life and is lost forever. I don't think that abortion is murder. I think that a fetus is just that, a clump of cells without the ability to formulate the concept of self and thought.
I simply feel that abortion is a choice.
I feel that the right of a woman that is pregnant to make a decision to abort or to not abort is her decision, not yours and not mine. I believe that she should be able to make that decision and to act on it without harassment from the public.
My opinion is not based on any sort of religious belief as I do not believe in god or a higher being. I believe that when you die that things go dark and thats it. The end...nada, nothing.
Okay, now I was pretty harsh there. I said some things that are absolute and don't give you much room to argue/discuss with me. Let me add some stuff that we can discuss. I know there are inconsistencies in my argument, feel free to flame me.
I do think there should be a limit on the age of the fetus that is eligible for abortion. For example, I think third trimester abortions should be outside the limit. I am a little bit squeemish about aborting a fetus at that age. Yes, I know, I'm being inconsistent but heck, it's my post.
I don't think government should provide abortions for woman free of charge. If the woman can't afford it then she and the father will need to pay for it over time. I have no problem if third party groups, (Planned Parenthood for example) pay for it.
There, that should be enough to start with.

and how sick, that our government is more concerned with reducing "acid rain" and fixing non-existant global warming than in stopping the bloody slaughter of millions of lives.

I'll ratchet myself down a few notches, I have no problem with woman that choose to keep their baby but conversely I also have no problem with women that decide to abort. It's their personal decision and I don't believe that you or I have any right to stick our nose into their personal decision. You won't hear me tell you that you cant have a child of our own.
Some people use religious reasons for being against abortion, some use personal reasons. Ironically, some people think it's okay to kill other human beings because they're so against the concept of abortion.
