Either you believe in ending an innocent life, or you oppose it. There is no middle ground.

I agree with Romney. No mother has the "right" to destroy her unborn children.

Richards,
There you go again with your All-or-Nothing false reasoning.

1. Of course there is Middle Ground, and there is a Choice.

2. You keep parroting the GOP party-line of No Abortions, ever, not for any reason. You can have your PoliticalParty opinions, but keep in mind they are not inline with the LDS Church’s policy.

3. Mitt Romney’s is actually more in line with the LDS Church’s and against the GOP party platform – allowing for Rape, Incest, Life and Health of the Woman, and Viability of the fetus. He also said just this week that he will not push for a change in Roe v. Wade or promote any anti-abortion legislation [do you still agree with him on that?].

4. You either support the LDS Church and its policies regarding abortion, or you oppose it. There is no middle ground.

Obama has adopted a strategy of "kill Romney, because Obama cannot run on his own record - so he must make his opponent toxic to even have a change:
Obama must simply deny that he, himself, is a liar, which in itself would be a lie. In fact, this is exactly the stated Obama approach - to lie about Romney, Libya, war on women, jobs; anything in the way of his power.

@Ford DeTreese

Obama is a failure and his only chance at winning is the infamous "kill Romney" strategy to make his opponent toxic; which is why his deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, has been spreading lies all summer (Failure in Libya is a result of Romney's media circus; Romney wants to cut 5 trillion in taxes; Romney is a felon: All of which are certifiable lies)

Yet Obama would simply deny that he is a liar, which in itself would be a lie. In fact, this is exactly the Obama approach.

@WHAT NOW?
Endlessly repeating the question "Which Romney?" merely exposes your own confusion. Anyone looking past the Obama MSNBC media spin machine can see Romney quite clearly

"If there is a middle ground on abortion I think Romney found it. But here's the rub. Who cares? I am not planning on having an abortion. I just want the economy to get better..."

Agreed.

Just like the Repubs. Regardless of the situation, they trot out an emotional wedge issue to keep their base vehemently rabid to obfuscate more important issues i.e. economy.

P.S. For me, the obesity epidemic takes higher precedence than abortion.

Impact Wrestling on Spike last night was far more credible, realistic, & entertaining than the debate.

"Romney told us that the unborn have rights. I agree with Romney. No mother has the "right" to destroy her unborn children."

If the unborn have rights; what about the undead?

Seriously, the way you phrase your claim makes me realize how ludicrous the whole abortion argument can be.

Morality should NOT be legislated. At some point, we will all suffer repercussions for all the choices we make... whether it me karma, deity, or poetic justice.
