I find it interesting that the last four times a bill to place restrictions on abortion actually went to a public vote they have been soundly defeated (colorado twice, mississippi and now Albuquerque).

Don't you also find it interesting that when the subject of same sex marriage goes to a public vote, it gets soundly defeated by the public, even in states like California?

@mg scott
actually that is no longer true, during the last election every state that had initiatives on the ballet went in favor of gay marriage and gay rights, more then 40 years later anti abortion advocates cannot say the same. Funny how we move towards guaranteeing civil rights and not towards restricting them isn't it.

Life ends when the heart stops beating.

Life starts when the heart begins beating.

Therefore, abortion is ending a life.

If a tree falls in a forest with no one around, there is still noise. If a human is in a womb with no one around to see, there is still life.

Can't believe the awful things people can justify.

Common sense is confusing to some people.

@worf

its not "common sense" that life begins or ends with a heart beat, it is your belief. Science does not have a universally accepted definition of when life begins or ends some say it is tied to a heart beat some say brain function. Many theologians believe it is when the soul enters the body but they do not agree if the soul enters at conception or at the babies first breath.

Still many states have never voted, and the ones that did, like California, that vote still stands.
And, if you want to argue abortion, most people in the country would ban late term abortions according to polls.

@mg scott

If your claims about recent poll numbers is correct then why is it that the last four attempts to pass late term abortions has failed when put to a vote?

The CA was how many years ago? the last several ballot issues that went to the voters have all sided with a more just society on both issues and away from unconstitutional restrictions on individuals rights, attitudes are changing sorry thats just the facts.
