How's that for a stupid analogy.
P.S. Pearl, this site is a lot less fun when our fellow posters get banned all the time.
How many people in here are relieved that those Irish doctors weren't expected to jeopardize their consciences?
I really don't get "progressives" who want to solve everybody's problems and feel it's their social responsibility to make sure evolution stops here. . . . . lol
One Brow, I realize that our discussion has deteriorated from a open discussion where we consider one another's points, to simply poking holes in one another's arguments, so I'm going to finalize my participation in this discussion by saying that I appreciate where you're coming from, I really do. In no way am I condoning a Catholic State in the United States, rather I am simply saying that people should have the right to follow their own religions - as stated in the first amendment - and I realize that we're probably not going to agree on this point. Luckily, in the United States that woman would have been able to get the treatment she needed from doctors that would have been comfortable doing the procedure, which is a comforting notion to me.
The original intent of this thread is to discuss various points and the specifics of the Affordable Care Act and I propose that we get back on track!
