Comments: "If abortion is so wonderful, why are we so reluctant to expose it to the light? "
I just want to know why, if the libs support abortion so much, they have a problem with post-birth or retro-active abortion for criminals (otherwise known as the death penalty).

Speaking of which:
I have noticed that TV shows are very reluctant to abort, even when the plot involves an inconvenient pregnancy. The happy ending always involves sparing the baby. For an industry whose leading lights are ferociously pro abortion, that seems odd, although I'm not complaining.

Don Rodrigo, yeah right. They know the ratings would look like the bottom of the city's septic pond.
Always force a liberal/Prog/Socialist clowns to face their beliefs.

If you read only one book and all of the glorious footnotes hidden like sapphires within its pages, you must read Gulag Archipelago. When you come to this footnote, you will have struck mind gold.
Memorize it. Let the words pulse through your veins with your blood to the very chambers of your heart and back out into your hands and feet:
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you'd be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur -- what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!"
