How do conservatives rationalize their moral concern when it comes to abortion, but raises no such moral concern, when it comes to other issues, such as wars, the morality of punishing people who enter this country illegally, or the morality of the death penalty

if the illegals that want to come here want to do so then they should do LEGALLY

I've always wondered how a democrat can rationalize their desire to take away by murder the INNOCENT life of a child, yet want to protect the life of a GUILTY murderer!

War is national self defense, illegal is illegal, and the difference between abortion and the death penalty is that between innocence and guilt. Try thinking.

Others have, and foolishly in my opinion, given accurate answers to your stupid questions, thus embarrassing you by treating you as though you really meant to ask what you did.

There ARE stupid questions.

Come back with questions deserving an answer.

Does 1257 refer to the number of brain cells you have?

@FairnessMan: "Does 1257 refer to the number of brain cells you have?"

I think the "None" does that - "1257" must be his drone number.

Polarization blurs the whole argument. Labels are abused. And the truth still is that most are only symptom bashing, not even getting to the root problems.

Is there some "middle ground" between killing a baby and letting it live? What in the wide-wide-world of sports would that middle ground BE?

Um, people who come into the country illegally are breaking the law, and we are a country of laws or anyway we used to be. And people who are convicted of heinous crimes and sentenced to death knew in advance of committing murder that this was a possible outcome, and took that chance. An aborted baby has done nothing illegal, and committed no heinous crime, and has no voice nor say in its execution. I don't see the need to "rationalize" at all. Am I missing something?

Abortion is murder...plain and simple. Try reading the Bible for moral guidance is that regard, The death penalty is applied to people who murder [ in most cases ]. And people who are here illegally should be punished...that is why they call them "illegal aliens." Any questions?

"An ex-convict who killed a pregnant woman will be charged with two counts of murder in the death of the woman and her unborn baby. Mark Anthony Cox, who was recently released from prison where he served time for robbery and breaking and entering, allegedly killed 22-year-old Danielle Watson, who was pregnant at the time of her murder, during an armed robbery." How can you rationalize it's murder when a stranger kills the child, but perfectly acceptable for the mother to do it?

I'm sorry, I miss the point here. There is no rationalization required. Abortion kills a innocent; wars are usually prosecuted to defend people that are being down-trodden by people who have no morals; punishing people who enter this country illegally is called following the rule of law; and the death penalty is the ultimate punishment for heinous crimes. Where does being against killing a baby negate the acceptance of the later?

There is a very strong probability (stronger today in the era of DNA evidence) that the person executed for a capital crime is, indeed, guilty of that crime. The babies killed by abortion are guilty of only being conceived by amoral people.
The NBC series "Parenthood"' has drawn raves from TV critics this season for a storyline about a 40-something mother fighting cancer. Then on Jan. 1, NBC asked viewers to tune in the following Tuesday for an "unforgettable" new episode. A teenager would get an abortion at Planned Parenthood. Such is NBC's definition of "parenthood."

Drew, one of show's leading teenager characters, has an ex-girlfriend named Amy who comes back to tell him "I'm pregnant." The high school seniors go to the Planned Parenthood clinic, and the scene plays like a political commercial.

The counselor says, "If you decide to...
