Re: John55, "You Stossel and libertarian haters fail to realize. If the GOP would simply stop[...] " Libertarians are not GOP. I couldn't care less about what the GOP does or does not do. Besides, as a libertarian I don't care what people do in their personal lives. I DO care about abortion, since abortion is the initiation of violence against another and innocent person.

sorry,but a fertilized egg or embryo is NOT a human being.
it may never attach to the uterus,or may never develop a brain and a soul. many embryos never attach and are flushed out during menses.
just because a lump of cells has human DNA does not make it a human being.
A tumor also has that DNA,and we regularly excise them.
On his recent trip abroad, Mitt Romney observed an American taboo by not criticizing President Obama's military policy. But before his trip, he made his position clear. Obama has "exposed the military to cuts that no one can justify," Romney said.

He meant that unless Congress intervenes, Pentagon spending will be cut by more than $500 billion over 10 years under the (bipartisan) budget sequestration scheduled for January. This terrifies those who fear that limiting the growth of the military-industrial complex will leave us less safe.

But is that true? Even if $500 billion is actually cut, America still will spend...
