No matter how you stand on abortion, do you think it is acceptable for a mother to be legally allowed to have her viable but unwanted baby killed right after delivery?

I expected them to be Dems, and was shocked they weren't.

So I suspect that a few people were either dishonest in their demographic info on the app, or in answering the question.

And now it's 2 Dems, 1 Republican, and 1 independent.

I think they accidentally hit the wrong button or read the question wrong.

Kelly ... there are also some leftists who classify themselves as Republicans so they can skew the results.

Kelly ... I am agreeing. My poll last week confirmed it. There are the conspiracy theorists who purposely change their demographic data to throw off the boogeyman from their trail and then there are the arrogant punks who just want to pollute the data.

As a result, you have to interpret the demographic data by first throwing out the anomalies.

Well they keep chipping away at things and this will gradually become acceptable. Some day in the future a mother will decide she’s tired of living with her 14 year old daughter and have her killed too.

Well, to be fair, 14 year old girls are extremely hard to live with.

That’s basically what partial birth abortions are. Not sure why the pro choicers are changing their mind.

Absolutely not. I'm pro life but even if I were not, I couldn't imagine thinking anything like this being acceptable. What next, is killing toddlers also acceptable? What about fifth graders? What about anyone under 18?

I think next will be the elderly, the infirm, the disabled, the mentally ill, the catatonic, etc. Those that people will decide are not “productive members of society.”

We’ve already seen that some insurance companies are telling doctors that they will not pay for lengthy treatments for their patients, but “Have you considered assisted suicide? We’ll cover that!”

After these groups, it will progress to anyone that dares to speak against the liberal agenda, those that dare to speak up for what they believe.

Of course, seeing what happened to the Covenant Kids, it could be white Christian males first, before ANY other group!

Yes, if you open that door, it can lead to a scenario like in the movie Soylent Green where the elderly are encouraged to commit assisted suicide in medical centers designed for that purpose...

It’s already been opened in some states, where it’s now legal!

And they’re pushing this on young people as well....I read a novel that is very popular among teen and young adult women about a man in a wheelchair that went to one of these centers to commit suicide. They’re trying to make it acceptable.

If you think it’s acceptable at one age, there’s no logical line that you can draw at all.

As a pro-choice individual, its baffles me people have taken this far.
I think definitely, will help the pro-life movement.

EXACTLY, Liberty! I’ve known that ever since 1973. Frankly, I’m shocked that it’s taken them this long to lower themselves to this level of depravity!

Robert, I’m not surprised at all. I knew it would come to this, eventually. When you say that ONE life doesn’t matter (much less a MILLION every year), what difference should another life matter?

Did you know that abortion is now the number ONE cause of death WORLD WIDE? I read that we’ve lost 1/3 of the Millennial generation! And when you have more black babies KILLED than born alive, you have a case of eugenics!

And I hope you’re right, Robert.....I hope this will knock some people that have been pro-choice to their senses....and help them realize this is NOT about the health of the “mothers,” but the MONEY it brings in to these butchers! Of course, now it’s not just doctors that can make a “killing” (LITERALLY), it’s nurses as well! Let’s all watch as healthcare goes down and women start dying!

4jC there's nothing wrong with Eugenics and tell government is involved involving government in whether somebody has an abortion or not is eugenics.

It sucks if that is true that the number one cause of death is abortion. Let me bring up the one topic that always never gets explained well why are you Pro death penalty and against abortion? Because the baby is innocent? I'm sorry but regardless of the state of the Criminal you are still for death if you're for the death penalty. Something about life mattering...

4JC Christian Pastors Wife

One way I’ve heard it explained is that I’m pro-JUSTICE.....the innocent deserve a chance to live....and it’s justice for the family that lost their loved one to the depravity of the criminal in the death penalty.

It IS pro-life, if you think about it....a deterrent for a person to NOT murder someone and take their life, just as we’re for women NOT murdering their babies!

Hubby and I were just watching an ep of The Murdoch Mysteries, which is a Canadian detective show, set in the late 1800’s. This ep was about a man that was hanged for murdering a judge. No matter what you think about capital punishment, I think that we can ALL agree that the number of people that are willing to murder someone in cold blood has only MULTIPLIED since we’ve gotten soft on crime and don’t have swift judgement and capital punishment for those murders!

So I’m not worried about the CRIMINAL and his life.....but the INNOCENT...the babies and those who would be murdered!

@4jc,
Way better explanation than I've been hearing lately thank you very refreshing.
Even my favorite right-wing media host Ben Shapiro has this glaring mistake in his arguments against abortion.

Do you think when arguing your points going forward that you will alter "but it's a human life" to "but it's an innocent human life" ?

Abortion a side, would you as a Christian conservative allow government to interfere in human reproduction in any other shape or form?

4JC Christian Pastors Wife

Thanks! That means a lot to me! I OFTEN mention that preborn babies are THE most innocent of all lives, and that this is worse than the Nazis killing the Jews or the Romans killing Christians in the Colosseum for sport, because the babies are INNOCENT, and haven’t had the choice of being Jews or Christians....they’re just killed because they are INCONVENIENT, for the most part.

I don’t know what you mean about allowing the government to interfere with human reproduction in any other shape or form. If you’re talking about weeding out one sex or Downs’ Syndrome, or altering genetics, I am NOT in favor of that, and you have some SERIOUS ethical problems with each of those situations.
