  1. George covered the subject pretty well but not completely, IMO. I miss his brutal honesty.

    Although it isn’t evident from most discussions, I think many Democrats like myself would agree that a viable fetus in the latter stage of development deserves a chance at life. Unfortunately there is no objective way to determine that time of viability, growth being a continuum. But bringing a damaged or malformed, child into the world is nothing short of immoral. It’s a crime against the fetus and a crime against society.

    God doesn’t program the production of children. Ever since the discovery of the reproductive cycle, people choose to have them. Or not.

    • The age of viability (when a fetus can survive outside the womb) is currently about 22-24 weeks.

      I do have mixed feelings about late-term (last trimester) abortions. It seems to me that by then most women would know they are pregnant and would have already made a decision about abortion. But regardless, it’s not my decision and shouldn’t be the state’s decision. It’s the pregnant woman’s body and it’s her call.

    • I’d always assumed the religious right has always been with us and just got polarized by the abortion issue. I wasn’t aware of the school segregation thing, probably because I was too busy figuring out what to do when my son entered middle school.
