So I've metamoderated a few comments about how "I don't need religion to tell me that taking an innocent life is wrong". Well I'm very happy for you. Now go and don't get an abortion. As for you having a moral right to force that view on everyone else, I say fuck you and the rest of your Republican bullshit.
I don't like the idea of abortion either but I'm not going to make it illegal for two reason.
1) I don't want backdoor butchers to return that killed half as many women as it helped.
2) It's not my body and I do not have to live with that decision for the rest of my life.
So how can I live with myself? I try to make sure my friends are fully informed on the alternatives before they make a choice. I make it a point to make sure that the alternatives are really viable. That is all I can do. I refuse to put my personal beleifs into law and everyone else should be refuse to do that as well. Morality does not make for good law. You want a country run by morals move to Vatican City (yes, it is a recognized country with it's own standing army) which is run by the Pope who is supposed to be the most moral man in the world. Otherwise live your own life as you will and let others do the same. Stupid fuckers.
