why not keep it as is. if you think abortion is wrong and against Jesus, then let Jesus handle it in the afterlife.

for the Pro Choice crowd: I dont want my tax dollars paying for abortion so as long as its paid from donations then its ALL GOOD !

dont we have bigger things to deal with than this?
Exactly how I felt when Dick Cheney pushed for genocidal action in Iraq, which all informed people knew would lead to civil war. There was no good argument for pursuing an action that would lead to ME instability, empower Iran, and personally enrich Mr. Cheney. Yet I was dragged kicking and screaming the whole way into a position in which I bore some responsibility (via my tax dollars) for mass-murdering innocent brown people.

Now in regard to your specific position, there is actually a good argument for using tax dollars on birth control measures, and that is that without these measures, unwanted children will grow into unwanted adults who place a far greater strain on our resources than the cost of birth control. Sometimes (well most times, really) we're better off playing the long game.

Florida state Representative says God has told him to rewrite abortion bill with no exceptions



Quote:
A Florida state representative told a group that God told him to a rewrite an abortion bill without exceptions for rape or incest.

In a speech given to Women for Responsible Legislation group in Pensacola, Florida, state representative Mike Hill said God spoke directly to him about a restrictive abortion bill he had previously tried and failed to pass in Florida’s legislature.

"As plain as day, God spoke to me,” Mr Hill, a Republican, told the group. “He said 'that wasn't my bill,' talking about the heartbeat detection bill that I filed. He said 'that wasn't my bill.'"

“I knew immediately what he was talking about,” the state representative confirmed.

The bill which Mr Hill, and, allegedly, God, were referring to would have restricted abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. Mr Hill’s proposed version of the ban, which is currently sweeping the nation in various forms, included exceptions for rape, incest, medical emergency, human trafficking, and domestic violence.

Mr Hill told the group he included the exception in hopes of getting the bill passed, but the proposed law died before getting a committee hearing, which he lamented was more focused on "health care, transportation, and the Everglades" than his attempt at an abortion ban, according to the Pensacola News Journal.

Mr Hill says he’s currently working on a new bill, with outside help.

"[God] said, 'you remove those exceptions and you file it again.' And I said 'yes Lord, I will'," Mr Hill said. "It's coming back. It's coming back. We are going to file that bill without any exceptions, just like what we saw passed in Alabama."

On Friday, the ACLU and Planned Parenthood sued the state of Alabama for its unconstitutional abortion ban. Representatives of the ACLU of Alabama told The Independent on Thursday that they expect the legal fight to take around three years. Abortion remains legal in the state for now.

You HAVE heard of the Hyde Amendment, haven't you?

Won't happen.

Trump will abolish the position of president and declare himself Fuhrer for life. Then he'll get rid of Congress and the courts and issue orders to have all the racial, ethnic, and religious minorities report to the concentration camps for liquidation.



Election. HAH!

Just you watch.
