I really felt that this was interesting information.

 "Pascal's Wager," which states that believing in God costs you nothing if you're wrong, and wins you everything if you're right.

The link is posted in the thread <<History of Abortion/Birth Control >>.


Which you posted to my post - so you must have read it.

Well, since you started a new thread, it would have been helpful to cite the source in it.


Not everyone reads every thread. I don't and didn't see your other post.

It seems that the times and information have changed many organizations and individuals to be pro-choice, including the Supreme Court of the United States.

Many have changed to PL too, including 'Roe' herself - and the court can change as well.

Which is the major reason I may vote Democrat in the next election, even though I think that McCain would make a fine President.


I'd only agree with overturning Roe v Wade IF the SCOTUS were to come up with a better judicial opinion in favor of abortion rights. The current wording is not the best and many can argue that privacy is not a Constitutional right.


But Equal Protection Under the Law? That is a much better argument. Every woman should have the same right a man has to determine the medical actions needed to keep her healthy. Restricting/banning abortion limits a woman's right to make those decisions.

Yes, Jefferson had many things to say about freedom of religion, including his assertion that the freedoms did not extend only to Christians.

As a Christian - I completely agree with Mr. Jefferson - all faiths should bwe permitted the freedoms of practice, worship, expression and not be hindered by others or the state.

This individual (me) attended Catholic schools from 4-12 grades and was taught that abortion was wrong, in the eyes of the Catholic church.
