Fighting for life

The issue of abortion is a huge divider. There isn't a middle ground. Either you believe life should be protected from the moment it sparks or you don't.

I know there are disagreements as to when life actually begins, which simply seem like semantics to justify actions to me: It's OK to abort at one month but not two, at three but not five, etc., etc.

It's an issue that isn't going to be resolved in our lifetimes no matter who passes what law.

No matter how a person feels about it, abortions are not something that tax dollars should buy. I especially do not want a nickel of MY tax dollars going to support abortion.

I'll be including some info on here at times as to what's happening on the abortion front, and where it looks like we're headed.
