In my opinion abortion should be a non issue for politicians. To abort or not should be between the pregnant woman, her doctor and God. Let your conscience be you guide. Pro lifers will always consider abortion as murder, pro choice will always believe it is simply killing the unborn.

Abortion is about nothing but unadulterated selfishness, and the indvidual who makes such a choice will also demonstrate a myriad of other SELFHISH traits in their relationships. Who wants to spend a lifetime or significant portion of thier lives dealing with that? After all it is ONLY about NINE months. there is always the father many of whom would happpily raise their child. There is always adoption.

Akin has served six terms in Congress with a consistent, unblemished conservative record. The fact that leaders of his own party joined hands...
