Because freedom can't protect itself
You say this is a step in the right direction? Since when is prenatal murder a civil liberty? You hide behind legislation, but you will never be able to hide behind the consequences of taking a life. Fine, you want to be immoral and unjust to a life that cannot defend itself; then why does corporal punishment sicken you so? What is really a "Civil" injustice is that funds collected through any governing body, whether federal, state, or LOCAL would be used to fund an abortion. If you want a woman to be able to take a life, then let her find a way to pay for it. You do not represent the ideals of true Americans. True Americans believe in protecting our own children, even those still in the womb; and we certainly should not have to pay for an abortion because a "poor" woman makes a choice that leads to an unwanted pregnancy. You made the choice, live with the consequences. No more BAILOUTS!
