Hooray for more fearmongering.

I honestly don't think anyone cares about gay marriage. I do think they will impose a limit on abortion timing. But I have no problem with that. I think late term abortion is rather disgusting.

Oh, get a grip!

The poor woman has been through a lot. No one would blame her if she wanted to step down. Yet you wanted her to continue sitting on the bench---the heck with her health. If she wants to hang in there, she should do so because she wants to---not because of people like you putting pressure on her.

Republicans, led by the Christian Right do. It's on page 11 of the official platform.

If Trump replaces RBG, we are going to have to have a serious debate in this country on whether or not same-sex couples married while it was legal will be grandfathered in or if all marriages that aren't one man and one woman will be annulled.

I think that's pretty much correct except on the real fringes.


Breathing never struck me as a good dividing line between mere body tissue and humanity, plus you get the oddity of fetal homicide in an abortion-rich world. Is a child at fault due to being fathered by a rapist or relative?


I don't think it would be that hard to build a compromise set of laws, which has been done numerous times really, but it sure is a perfect issue to get those troops out waving signs. I guess it all boils down to the fact that only Nazis are in favor of third trimester bans since the early periods are less of an argument.

Actually, I think they said it's up to the states.

You mean WHEN he replaces RBG.... the rest of your post is nonsensical hyperbole.

However one feels or thinks about RBG, some of the comments on this forum are absolutely disgusting to me.

Well, why don't you quote them so we know which ones you find offensive?
