This is a simple question, pretty straight forward. It now appears that SS may be pro-life, what say you?

As long as she doesn't try to overturn Roe v. Wade or use that against someone, I don't care.

Why would you be against the over turning of Roe v Wade?

Uh, why do you think? What, is this a trick question? You asked a simple question & I gave you an answer. Refrain from turning this into a twit of an argument.

I don't know, that's why I asked. Why are you so combative all of the time?

Combative? Let's see, I think it's all the inane posts & threads that really get me going. Especially a post asking why I would not want Roe v. Wade overturned, that's a pretty moronic post in my book.

I agree with Karfar.

And he's not being combative, Sonrise.

Just because she is personally pro-life does not mean she wants to overturn Roe v Wade. Roe v Wade is based on privacy. She may be opposed to abortion, but support any person's right to privately make decisions regarding their own personal health.

Yet you still haven't answered it. Why not?

Yes, because I think she is an excellent choice for the Supreme Court, and I know that it would be very very difficult to have a candidate that feels the same way about every single issue.

I'm very pro-choice, but it would take a lot more than one judge to overturn Roe V Wade, so I'm not worried in that sense.
