      If you really want ill send you some genuine evidence in my next reply. I’ll send a follow up in a few hours when I have more time.

    2. @Jonathan & Brittany Cross Spreading false information and lies. You really shouldn’t be allowed access to the internet.

    3. @DriveInFreak
      This is what she herself told me. She said she went in and was informed the baby had died in the womb and then her body pushed out the dead baby and the doctor suggested stabbing the baby in the skull to drain the brains just like in a “partial birth abortion” and she declined.

    4. @DriveInFreak Legend has it that you can use every method of lethal execution in the books for states that still have the death penalty.

      So you can do an abortion by firing squad.

      See a doctor about all your hate built up inside you calling other Americans the enemy. Putin sends his thanks comrade. 👍

      Oh wow… man, you’re bold. Reading your comments actually pierced my heart, and I’m sorry you feel that way. To say you don’t care about the struggles of my people due to the actions of a few is not only stupid, but just down right sad. I’d tell you what white people have done in the past but I don’t think you’d wanna hear it, it’s honestly _way_ worse than petty crimes like looting.

    1. Mississippi wanted to close its only abortion clinic and in a 5-4 Supreme Court decision and the honorable Chief Justices Roberts voting with the 4 left leaning judges said Mississippi could not close its only abortion clinic.

    2. @Peter Russell Not quite. The case you’re referring to was actually about Louisiana, and it would have left only one doctor in the state being licensed to conduct abortions if Robert’s hadn’t sided with the liberal Justices.

      More on the Alabama law, including links to the legislation, can be found on Wikipedia. Search for “Human Life Protection Act Alabama”.

  1. Meanwhile, South Carolina can’t get enough lethal drugs so it wants to add a Firing Squad to its’ execution choices….

    1. @Jaki Bland “what about incest? Or individuals who may not survive child birth..”
      What about them keeping their noses out of everyone’s business in the first place?

    2. @G C
      Or just ban the murder of innocent babies instead of murderers rapists and torturers that are pronounced Guilty by a jury of their peers that their lawyers get to pick out!

    3. @Jaki Bland the different is the baby didnt do anything the murderer did. Your point is stupid and you know it.

    1. @DancesWithBears Your taxes don’t pay for birth control or abortions. However, when families fall into poverty as a result of women being forced to bear children, you will pay for food stamps, AFDC, subsidized housing and Medicaid to support that family.

    2. @Demetria Karnavas Wrong. First, taxes pay for Medicaid, which pays for abortions deemed medically necessary. Second, I pay state taxes, which pay for abortions in my state, and not restricted to medically necessary.

    3. @DriveInFreak You said you would do something, but you didn’t say what you would do. Please clarify.

    4. @DancesWithBears There’s no reason Medicaid shouldn’t pay for medically-necessary abortions for low-income women. If you find that objectionable, you can certainly have your taxes support eligible children and families from cradle to grave.

  2. “We have seen through our history that when the Supreme Court greatly misconstrues the Constitution, generations of mischief follow.”

  3. _Giuliani: “This could have been Mickey Mouse, this could have been a dead person, this could have been the same person thirty times. And all of this has happened by the way!”_

  4. banning abortion but also severely cutting funding to public programming designed to help care for that child after its born… Not smart.

    1. @DriveInFreak is that supposed to be an insult 🤔 if so it seems like you’re just bringing up random things to change the subject because you support abortion but have no solid argument to support abortion

    2. @The Underdog I dont have sources for that. Do you need sources that prove pro life people are pro gun or more likely to go to church?

    3. @Don Transue I think pro lifers are more likely to go to church and own guns because the GOP supports both of these positions more openly than the dems. However adoption isn’t partisan like abortion, church, or guns. I imagine pro lifers are about as likely to adopt as pro choicers. The term, “fetus” and, “unborn baby” are basically synonymous. You could argue that both of us are, “fully grown babies” in that we resemble a baby in every way except our maturity and everything that comes along with it.

    1. Well they may very well be first for infant murders.
      that could be a real thing if they pass this.

    2. @TheWinged Hussar Infant murder vs. fetus murder. Yeah, both of those sound equivalent.

    3. @TheWinged Hussar It’s a decision, not a law; an opinion on the Constitutionality of a sovereign state passing laws to limit abortion without Federal interference.

    4. ​@Don Transue 👈🏼 Loves being wrong! 😅😂🤣
      California = 11.8% poverty (24th)
      Mississippi = 19.6% poverty (1st)

    1. @Demetria Karnavas I’m saying more democrat women NEED to have more abortions, especially the whites. Those children would be raised to be woke democrats themselves anyways. Democrats getting abortions is a blessing that conservatives have a hard time recognizing or conceptualizing. GOP should technically be investing in Planned Parenthood. This needs to be a 2022-24 issue, “Republicans For Democrat Abortions”.

  5. Conservatives: “America’s most critical freedom is the right to make decisions for yourself, not have government make you.”
    Also Conservatives: “Women, here’s what you are allowed to do with your own bodies.”

  6. 🗡🗡All these “hot topic” issues are discerned in a person’s heart. There’s two types. Saved or Unsaved 🖤❤. Every person has the law written in their hearts and 100% knows the difference between right and wrong. Thing is people who choose evil (and this world will win that battle) get to have these debates again one day:

    Romans 14:11
    King James Version
    11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

    1. Amen brother. These 2 verses say it all:

      Romans 1:21-22
      21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
      22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

      Stanley 1 :31 “And ye shall ride to glory in the radiator grill as so many of Ooga’s winged servants hath before you”
      Book Of The Church Of The Blue Bird
      Save your inner mechanic from going to the eternal scrapyard before it’s too late. Change your anti-Ooga ways, and kiss The Great Bus Hood Ornament.
