Still have no answer to the most important question. If you think that millions of babies are murdered every year, why haven't you done anything?

Who's "not doing anything"?

"Still have no answer to the most important question" - It's not "the most important question" and it's based on a false premise to begin with.

"why haven't you done anything?" - Why don't you ask that question to all the people who have done a lot, or at least tried to? Why don't you stop pretending they don't exist?

Because they have done almost NOTHING to stop what they consider mass murder. I ask the question here of the people who are here. Who has actually sacrificed something significant to stop this mass murder? I ask the question all the time and no one answers. Even your answer is just an attempt to shift the conversation to something else.

If you want to know how to change a cultural practice, look to the civil rights movement. Look at the number of people who were beaten, bitten, fire-hosed, shot and arrested. How many pro-lifers are in jail today for acts of civil disobedience? How many have refused to pay their taxes. Renounced their citizenship? Stormed the halls of Congress?

Because of the power and wealth of the abortion lobby, there probably isn't much that really could be done. I don't know about people commenting here, but you can't deny that a lot of people have done a lot to try to address abortion. (Well, maybe you can, but that's wilfull ignorance.)

At any rate, unless you would be willing to sacrifice something yourself, you have no business criticizing others.

How effective do you really think such measures would actually be anyway?

Well what can be done? I believe that it's in the interest of society to reduce the abortion rates as much as possible. There's a lot of whining and lament over abortion from both sides, but few really discuss changes in policy. Research shows that education coupled with easy contraception works. Until more research can be done to show other means, I think this is a valid path to take.

Abortion providers are in very sharp disagreement with that.

I don't know if they are, but if that's the case then that's their problem.

That's one of the reasons abortion hasn't become rare: no one with any influence on the "pro-choice" side actually wants them to be. Abortions are too profitable. That's why the abortion lobby fights tooth & nail against anything that might potentially keep even one abortion from happening. If you haven't observed that, you just ain't payin' attention.

Want to make abortion more rare? Make it unprofitable.

How is abortion profitable to the providers? Where did you get this information? Do you know where I can find some actual numbers to crunch?

CC, I have four lovely, successful sons (well, 3.5 successful) My question remains. What have you actually DONE to prevent these murders? My guess is "nothing."

What would you be willing to do?

I don't think they are murders: the onus is on those who do think that.

"I don't think they are murders"

At what stage do you consider them not murders? After the first trimester? Second? After birth?

Are you really going to claim that a "partial-birth" abortion is not murder?

In this 40th year of legalized abortion in America, Hollywood and Planned Parenthood want you to know abortion is no big deal.

That’s the message we’re to infer from the recent episode of NBC’s hit show “Parenthood” titled “Small Victories,” in which the teen character Amy casually decides to abort her baby because, as she explains to her boyfriend, “If I have this baby, my life is over.” Apparently the figurative end of her life would be a bigger deal than the literal end of a baby’s.

On the show, Amy’s boyfriend, Drew, objects to the abortion and tries to map...
