Squawk of the Day - Jan. 6, 2012

"Republicans say they like small government and personal liberties for Americans. What they want is the government to tell women what they can and can’t do with their own bodies?"

I believe those nasty Republicans are thinking about the rights of that little body inside the woman's body.

Ever hear of personnel responsibility like not killing your baby?

Ever hear of keeping your knees together and NOT getting pregnant in the first place? If these children, as most of them are, were taught to abstain, then their children would know the value of a child is more than just another mouth to feed. There is a time and a place for an abortion, but not based solely on the fact that you went out one night and screwed up.

Absurd statement, Squawker! Most Republicans, and some Democrats, who oppose abortion believe that the unborn deserves protection. To broaden that to a desire for control of what women do with "their own bodies" shows a lack of logic. By the way, how do you feel about the Democrats trying to tell us what we are supposed eat?

And what some of those women are dong to their bodies is why we have so much welfare. They don't care about the baby at all, only about the check the get in the mail every month.

Human life > a woman's "right" to not be inconvenienced

Small government would be just that, small. To be small, fewer laws needs to be passed. If you are against abortion, do not have one or do not impregnate a woman. If you are against gay marriage, do not marry anyone who is gay. If you want to believe and be afraid of your god, do so. Doing so does not give you the right or the power to condemn others who want to worship something that they do not fear.

If your logic is that women get pregnant for the money, why are unwed mothers still poor?

Talk about women and their bodies, holy smoke take a look around the USA today. Women today have their body sucked,tucked, lifted, foreigh objects placed in the body to enhance looks and the most obvious, the piercing and tattoo. Then there are the obese. Men in America are just as bad, so what is the question................

I honestly don't think Roe v. Wade is ever going to be overturned. Be you Republican or Democrat, pro-choice or not. The topic remains moot.
