    I think the debate on abortion is probably the most painful and emotional topic anyone can get envolved in. I have done it a few times and it sort of goes like this; first the person I am attempting to communicate with gets hostile as soon as they precieve that I am pro-live; and most of the time reduce me to a sterotype, like I am someone who goes to abortion clinics and starts throwing red paint on the women attempting to get through to procur an abortion; I suppose they also see me foaming at the mouth etc. It seems impossible to get past that so I have stopped for the most part in trying to debate this issue, but I would like to put some thoughts down on the subject.
    I am pro-life but I don’t see how making abortion illegal will do any good since before Roe@Wade if the literature is right….. just as many women got abortions; they just had to do it in an illegal fashion. I think laws are for the protection and benefit of the people, so any law that would put a large segement off the population in danger is a law that should not be approved.
    From the stats that I have read women from across the line; believers, non believers, fundies and catholics all pretty much get the same amount of abortions as the general population, and most likely this was true in the past. So to make abortion illegal is to put a great many women in danger which I think is immoral.
    I do think abortion is immoral, I feel that the fetus has rights but this mentality is based more on religious principles than any thing else. We live in a society that has many belief systems and so it is only natural that serious disagreements over morality will come up; abortion being one of the main ones at this time. I think that if we want to have a society were abortion would be something rare is something that will have to be built from the bottom up and not from the government down. Laws just don’t work in areas like this…. people have to be changed by education and also by the efforts of Christians and others who are pro-life to make this a more caring and gentle society. Yelling and screaming at women who are trying to get an abortion does not work, in fact it weakens our cause since any group is often judged by the worst element in said group; not fair but I think it is a common fault.
    I will not say how I voted, but I do not identify with either party, also abortion was not a central issue for the way I voted since like I said I doubt that abortion will ever be illegal, so why beat a dead horse.
