...if life begins at conception, then shouldn't those children be counted in the census? Shouldn't they be represented in electoral considerations?

I'm not sure why it matters. They would be hard to count as pregnancies are undiscovered for weeks and sometimes months.

But when they are discovered, no matter how late in the pregnancy, they should surely be counted? They are, after all, people?

This issue is likely to be dropped like a hot potato by the Republican party for at least 2 years.

Don't expect you'll hear much about abortion or RvW for two years, bank on it. There'll be some on threads and forums like this who bring it up, but elected officials will not talk about it.

Perhaps, but it doesn't seem critical to me. The unborn are eventually born and will be counted.

I saw a pregnant woman driving well above the speed limit today. Should I have called 911 because I was witnessing child endangerment? Gosh, this is so confusing. Please help.
