Leon Kass and Francis Fukuyama, who served on Bush's Council on Bioethics have written extensively against extending human longevity. Pope Benedict XVI opposes "immortality medicine". http://www.firstthings.com/article/2001/05/lchaim-and-its-limits-why-not-immortality http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0374236437/reasonmagazineA/ http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/tech/science/2008-03-09-popeimmortality_N.htm

Ironic that conservatives tend not to support research dedicated to curing aging, thus enabling indefinite healthy lifespans. Some even oppose such efforts.
In 2008 the GOP nominated a Presidential candidate who opposed bringing the insufficient GI Bill up to the 21st century. This former candidate rationalized his position because he thought it was unpatriotic for military service members to leave the service in order to further their education as opposed to staying in the military. This man continues to receive support of the GOP by serving as the senior U.S. Senator from Arizona. His name is John McCain.
Anybody who thinks Las Vegas is a paragon of libertarianism has never gotten a traffic ticket in Las Vegas.
Ironically, death by firing squad is the quickest, easiest, and most humane way to execute someone.

Even if all pro-lifers, including Mike Adams, were to hypothetically concede the moral validity of a rape exception, it could never work in practice. A woman could not simply walk into a clinic and have this conversation. Woman: "I want an abortion". Clinic worker: "We can't do that unless you were raped". Woman: "I was raped". Clinic worker: "Oh, OK then. The doctor will be right with you." In reality, there would have to be a very long and expensive investigation followed by a legal ruling determining that the rape exception applies. That will take much longer than 3 or 9 months.

Three not yet invented technologies that could shift power away from the feminists: 1. Artificial wombs. The ability to terminate a pregnancy without destroying the fetus will make it impossible to justify abortion with "my body, my choice". 2. A broad panel of options for MALE birth control. Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance (RISUG) is a promising possibility. 3. Consumer medical devices that enable paternity testing as quickly, as easily, and as cheaply as a smart phone application.
"Until then, you're part of the problem." So the all non-religious people are responsible for "Mikey Weinstein and his ilk"? Such a cop out.
And you want to be just as bad as those that label all conservatives racists?
99.9% of atheists, agnostics, deists, skeptics, have no vendetta against organized religion or religious people. These "militant atheists" are longing for publicity. A shame conservatives cannot make the distinction.
