I’m with ya’ on the abortion issue, actually all on your list, but what is it you want/expect from Romney, or for that matter any pro life politician, to do considering the Supreme Court has long since ruled on this issue?

Is reversal of Roe vs. Wade even possible?

As your list attests, this country has some serious issues to deal with right now. I have to admit, abortions are not that high on my list, and suspect others too, of what we need to correct.


Abortion not high on the list? The same could have been (and probably was) said of slavery in the early 1800s. It was still THE moral issue of the day.

Is reversal possible? Perhaps with a Romney replacement of Bader-Ginsburg or Breyer. If Obama replaces them or a conservative justice... definitely no reversal.

So, I want/expect conservative justices appointed by Romney. From other politicians I would want support for legal protections for the unborn. A candidate near me just got into trouble for voicing support for the unborn even in cases of rape. He was clumsy and maybe even stupid in how he said it... but he was telling the truth. A Republican official trying to smooth it over said, "Some Republicans believe that life begins at conception. Other Republicans think there are exceptions to that rule." Consider that. Exceptions to when one is a human. More stupid and clumsy talk from a Republican! But that attitude, exceptions to humanity, are what make this THE issue of our generation.

Thanks, tim, for the comment and the questions.


Question BroKen:

Are you also pro life in cases of war or the death penalty?

tim aka The Godless Heathen


Touché on the slavery analogy.

But even with new justices …I’m no court scholar but I don’t recall ever hearing about SC decision being reversed.

Yeah, you’re right, an unborn child is exactly like someone who committed a hideous crime.

Also, I can’t think of a better analogy than a fetus and…say…an Islamic suicide bomber, Hitler’s storm troopers, communists…etc. Same, same.

Though I can actually see your confusion, as many on your ideological side would rather terminate fetuses than our enemies.

Keep up the good work, we’re all better people for having read your insightful comment.


tim, I'm no supreme expert but I'm pretty sure the court can reverse decisions of previous courts. They did it to the Deed Scott decision, I think. Anyway, that is my hope and prayer.

Zoe, I would align myself with just war theory. As to the death penalty, a friend once asked me quite bluntly, "How can a Christian support the death penalty?" I replied, "I think there is a measure of grace in telling someone, especially a guilty person, 'On this day you will meet your Maker. Be prepared.'" My friend went on about how unjust the implementation is. I said, "That's a different question, isn't it?"


Thank you BroKen.

tim, you are a sad little
