MV, have you ever really spoken to people with a firm belief against abortion IRL?
Almost every one I've ever spoken to equates abortion with infanticide. For them, even formulating abortion as a decision between a woman, her doctor, and her partner is missing the most critical person of all - the baby. Small-government conservatives would never consider infanticide to be a private decision outside the regulation of government, and those who are against abortion share in that decision.
Not, MV, but I do know some who are firm against abortion. The ones that I know are not the ones that say no gov paid health care.
Maybe those small government conservatives, who are against government subsidized health care are not anti-abortion conservatives.
I think there is too much of a tendency on the boards to lump people into the group based on one view they may have posted about.
That's why I tend to stay out of the discussions when it's "conservatives believe x" and "liberals believe y" when what individuals believe are all over the map.
