The Republican party, from the beginning, stood for the dignity of human life; and against the dehumanization and murder of any segment of mankind for the convenience of another segment.

We still stand on these principles. Life is valuable.

So, yes. The answer is yes. We must stand on the side of human dignity and life. It is our foundation.

I did not want Obama to win, but there were no tears shed over McCains’ loss.

Take away the pro-life platform and what’s left to differentiate the two parties?

Economic freedom, foreign policy, and military issues.

Economic freedom, foreign policy, and military issues.

Those three things represent the differences between the parties if you take social issues out of the mix? And people wonder why there is a growing third party movement.

My feeling is that women should be counseled regarding abortion, their options regarding keeping the baby , or giving it up for adoption.

After that, should we imprison the pregnant women so that they can’t get an abortion in another state or country?

I respect that someone is pro-life, but it is denying reality that legal abortion is here to stay.

If we can’t rid the country of pornography, abortion will also be impossible to outlaw. I do favor restrictions, but outlawing it is a pipe dream.

That is ridiculous. There are tons of people (myself included) who support banning abortion but not pornography.

The only way a new party has ever grown to win elections in this country is if there was only one other party in existence. So long as the GOP is running candidates it is a practical impossibility to have a new major party.

I think outlawing abortion is a pipe dream. One of these days, people will wake up to reality on that issue. Sure, restrictions. But ouright ban? no way.

Probably because people want to do it for religious reasons, but not political reasons.

What countries have strict limits on abortion? I think even Ireland legalized it recently.

I believe people will one day be looking back at abortion in exactly the same way we look back at slavery.

“CNN’s Rick Sanchez: Does the GOP ‘Have to Be Anti-Abortion’?”

Does the DNC have to be PRO Abortion?

Idiot.

I keep telling people this, but the pro-aborts have too much of their emotions tied up in the issue to have it penetrate.

They spend their lives justifying their decisions instead of repenting and asking forgiveness.

I agree. One is free expression, one is murder.

It’s one thing to want to make abortion illegal. It is quite another to do it.

Many of you have this feeling for religious reasons. Just as some are confident of the Second Coming, so there people are confident of banning abortion.

In the meantime, the pro-Choice side wins election after election.

I personally am against abortion, but will not force a woman to carry the baby to term. Try to persuade her, yes but not force her.

I agree to that in part but there is (at least in my mind) an element that....well, don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time. IOW if you don’t want a baby, quit f***ing.
