Most Americans who consider themselves "pro-choice" favor abortion restrictions

"[M]ore than 8 in 10 Americans (81 percent) ... and nearly two-thirds of pro-choice supporters (66 percent), would restrict abortion to — at most — the first three months of pregnancy.....Additionally, 77 percent of Americans, including 79 percent of women and 71 percent of “pro-choice” supporters, say that laws can protect both a mother and her unborn child."

If we can persuade the electorate that this matters, we can more or less eliminate most abortion.  When I did a back of the envelope calculation to see what the business case for prenatal infanticide was, it struck me that the # of abortions done would not pay for the abortionist's salary (which he needs to cover his student loans, really) plus the cost of a clinic up to basic outpatient surgical standards.  So if we put "teeth" in regulations that force abortionists to adhere to these standards while defunding Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers, abortion would basically cease to exist outside large cities and some big university towns.

As the Spartans told Philip of Macedon, "If", but the financial position of prenatal infanticide is really precarious.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

Before you terminate my access let me explain...Got does not put on life the value that many mainstream Christians and a growing group of "Humanist" do. Genesis in establishing Capital punishment was specific that it was for striking down the "Image" of God !  When we elevate "Life" above the "Image" of God we get strange bedfellows, the misguided belief that God is against the taking of all "Life" even in the Capital Crimes, the association of "Humanists" who have humanity as their "God" ... I oppose embryonic stem cell research primarily because of the destruction of the image of God it requires, secondarily on the taking of innocent life...not the loss of life in and of itself.

As a citizen and Christian I oppose the taking of "innocent" life for many practical reasons, but theological it is always an "Image of God"  issue for me.

BTW  do you not reason the popularity of distorting or marking(tattoo) the body has any other motive other that the fallen nature' revenge on the Image of shall we discuss obesity, cleanliness,general healthy maintenance or adornment ?     

 Give this some thought before writing this differentiation off as one of semantics. I see it more as one of emphasis for us as a holy priesthood.
