They like to pick and choose, high taxes....definitely, socialize health care......absolutely:

But medical advances since Roe v. Wade have made it clear to me that late-term abortion is not a moral gray area, and we need to stop pretending it is. No six-months-pregnant woman is picking out names for her “fetus.” It’s a baby. Let’s stop playing Orwellian word games (killing FeedMeNOW softly). We are talking about human beings here.

How is this OK? Even liberal Europe gets this. In France, Germany, Italy, and Norway, abortion is illegal after 12 weeks. In addition to the life-of-mother exception, they provide narrow health exceptions that require approval from multiple doctors or in some cases going before a board. In the U.S., if you suggest such stringent regulation and oversight of later-term abortions, you are tarred within seconds by the abortion rights movement as a misogynist who doesn’t “trust women.”

Good article by Kirsten Powers, she's writing some good stuff about the trial no one has heard of.

>> I cannot legitimately say I am a person who cherishes human rights and remain silent about our country legally endorsing infanticide. <<

And I'm glad it's int the Beast. Maybe some of those "it's not really a baby" people will read it.

Yes, but playing God is what liberals like the most, particularly here in the US of A. Of course, they don't believe in God, but they love the idea of being God.

As regards Norway, abortion is available without restriction through 12 weeks gestation, and then through 18 weeks with the approval of a 2 person committee. The committee approval procedure was instituted because the government was concerned that there were too many 'turn downs' by hospitals, where 12-18 week abortions must be performed. After 18 weeks abortions are still allowed, but only under certain circumstances.

Norway has both a lower teen pregnancy rate and a lower abortion rate than the US, but it also has comprehensive sex education policies and universal health care that includes readily accessible contraception.

In a related matter, when Norway offered free contraceptives, the abortion rate dropped by half. and "the offer of free hormonal contraception does not necessarily lead to more users, but to more frequent use" by those women who are already sexually active.

You don't know if a lower teen pregnancy rate and a lower abortion rate is causally connected to more comprehensive sex education and universal health care. Maybe better parenting is the reason.

Leave it to a librul to attribute Socialist policies to, well, whatever they want to connect it to.

Kirsten seems to be a liberal with a conscience. I knew that theoretically, such people probably existed, but it's good to know that they actually do.

There's hope for her yet, but she better watch herself. When you say anything outside of the liberal GroupThink, they start sharpening the long knives. They're not a nice bunch.
