I guess we are starting to see the results of the pro abortionists; they are killing themselves off to extinction. Let's hope the process speeds up.

How about mandatory birth control implants for Catholics and Muslims? Mandatory vasectomies for blacks and latinos? How about their right to choose to have children? Long ago SCOTUS ruled that even 3rd generation mental defectives have a right to reproduce. Get the government out of medical decisions. Viva la revolucion.

Do House Republicans risk being branded as extremist and out of touch by bringing abortion back into the national spotlight when supposedly the economy is all Americans care about today?

Last Thursday, Republicans brought to a vote in the House a bill introduced by Arizona Republican Trent Franks that would have criminalized abortion based on sex. Although the bill received healthy support, 246 – 168, including 20 Democrats that voted for it, it was not enough to pass. The floor rule under which the bill was considered required a two thirds vote for passage and it fell short of that.
