I must be slipping, because someone had to tell me what Barack Obama had said during a debate on abortion: "Whether you're looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity is above my pay grade." Obama is pro-choice, and he even said so on that debate. Thus, stating that he's pro-choice is ALREADY a specific answer on when he believes life begins: He believes that it begins at birth. I think Obama made a mistake trying to sound like he's trying to have it both ways. If he equivocates like that, it makes it sound like he either doesn't really support the pro-choice view, or that he's trying to say anything to get elected. Since he's pro-choice, he should argue from that perspective. Simple as that.
I'm neither liberal Democrat nor conservative Republican; nor do I fall in between the two extremes as a "moderate", because I take stands rather than simply find a middle ground. My views depend upon the issue, so the only way to describe someone who is against both legalized abortion and the death penalty is as an independent. So whether you're liberal, conservative. or any of the points between, there's something for you to like -and not like. And there's other things to see as well. I generally post about 2 to 3 times a week. If I am gone for a certain amount of time, I'll say when I'm leaving, and when I expect to be back. Welcome!
