It will clear up any doubts that Christian conservatives have about his stand on the issue so that they can feel comfortable voting for him. As to liberals, they always hammer the GOP with this. Nothing new.
Actually the baby is recognizable as human before 12 weeks. Twelve weeks is three months.
Good point.
I know. You can't legislate societal change by force. I am trying to understand why we keep putting people in jail for murder, since we all know we can't legislate societal change. And when a man rapes a woman, we know it's only because his daddy was cruel and his mama was cold-hearted; so why do we put the poor darling in jail? So why are we trying to legislate societal change? And of course, it is so regressive to care if we kill a baby with a human body and a beating heart simply because he is still inside the mother's womb and has become inconvenient for her. After all, if she has a baby right now, it will ruin her figure and mess up her chances to get another boyfriend or to keep the one she already has. And of course we all understand that she never wanted a baby to begin with and simply does not have the money to raise a child. Oh, yes, maybe she should have kept her legs together and thus would not have become pregnant. But we don't want to ruin her fun, do we? Not nice to restrict someone's fun, is it? No, don't keep your legs together gals; just go ahead and be as irresponsible as you please, as long as you are having a good time. We will just kill the resulting child. No problem. As for you, DoctorX, I sincerely hope you will enjoy the selfish, irresponsible, idiot society we have been creating for a few decades now. You ain't seen nothin' yet. It's going to get really interesting in the future, and I am personally glad I am old enough that I will be gone before the really good stuff gets going.
China is a dictatorship too. Maybe not as crazy as making people all wear the same haircut. We need to be free of dictators, from Kim Jong Un to Obama.
Excellent comment!

I will remind everyone that even when it was the USSR, we all knew it was actually Russia who had taken over a number of other sovereign states. America does not do that. We do not take over other states. There is a fundamental difference between us. Putin was a member of the KGB. Whatever his motives, he must be watched and never trusted. All I care about are our own interests here in America, and by that I mean I don't want a new Soviet Union cobbled back together bit by bit. Stop trying to psychoanalyze Putin. Who cares. Just watch him closely. This is why we need a Republican president. Russia walked all over Carter too.

Whether or not we patronize Putin or raise his hackles, he needs to be watched closely. He is a former KGB thug.

The U.S. "grew" over 200 years ago. That was then, this is now. I don't care how anyone did things then. What matters is now. And right now, Russia is a very dangerous entity that should be watched like a hawk.
