I disagree with Mr. Limbaugh's opinion of Casey Anthony.

No, I am not going to get into a protracted discussion on the Abortion issue.

Limbaugh is making a comparison, and calling abortion murder.

'nuff said.

Abort - to stop, to prevent from continuing. Abortion - to stop a pregnancy, to prevent it from continuing.

Not the same as killing a 2 year old kid. There's no pregnancy to stop. We don't force women to carry through full gestation against their will. There is no other option - either force women to be pregnant against their will, or allow them to terminate the pregnancy. We cannot, AFAIK, remove embryos or pre-viable fetuses from the mother and incubate them in preparation for later adoption. The mother of a born child is not being forced to undergo pregnancy - she already chose to carry to term. She has legal options if she chooses not to care for her child any more - put it up for adoption or foster care, for example.

Limbaugh is crass, but what's new?

Actually, mine was a general statement intended for any Limbaugh haters. That only applies to you if you consider yourself such a one.
Any time the guy makes a controversial statement, many just harp on the fact that he got habituated to and then addicted to pain medicine that he took for miserable back pain, was overweight at one time, or bang away at any of the vast array of scurrilous accusations and rumors that his sick-minded haters have circulated about him. All it shows is how low some will go to attack the arguments of an effective spokesman in any way other than to debate the actual merits and demerits of his arguments.

I don't like the man, so I don't listen to him. I'm pro-choice on who I want to annoy me.

Limbaugh is using a dead two year old to make cheap, hurtful, invalid political points and profit from the noteriety- he knows if he is outrageous enough, he'll get publicity outside his circle of listeners.

Disgusting, but about what you'd expect from him.
if you were to take out the words "invald", "false" and "disgusting" I would agree with you.

Limbaugh is making a very valid point.

Rush knows how to rile up his fanbase. It's not that hard really.

Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?

According to liberals, there is no love for a fetus. Therefore killing Fetus Caylee is different than killing Baby Caylee.

If Casey Anthony had aborted this child, you wouldn't have known about it, nor would you have cared. But you sure would have championed her right to do it.

But killing her? Oh, well, that's a different story. Right?

So, tell me, where is Limbaugh wrong?

Limbaugh has gut punched liberals and robbed all the oxygen from their windpipes with this one. And he's right.
it isn't a matter of when "love" begins. a fetus is not a fully developed, living breathing human being. YES, an abortion and killing a two year old are different.

Rush is ranting as is his right and what his fans expect. the man is an addict and a blow hard he reminds me of Fog Horn Leg Horn with apologies to Fog

He knows how to rile up liberals too. That manifestly isn't too hard either.
