  • Pro-Life flowers on the steps of the Supreme Court

    If you are pro-life, you may wish to leave flowers on the steps of the Supreme Court. (or send flowers)

    Roe v. Wade pushes frivolous and unneeded abortions on all 50 states.

    The flowers on the steps would be like it's the grave site of the unborn.

    Thank You for your time.

    Is this an organized campaign going on, or just a suggestion?

      Didn't we just have a thread about this?

        It's all over the internet and a number of Senators know about it.

          The Roe v. Wade decision incited intense public controversy over whether abortion is such a "fundamental right" that it overrides the right of a child to live, the right of a father to prevent the abortion of his child, and the right of states to legislate the issue in accord with the will of the people.

            Pro Life

            I think the ones who are for abortion should change their name from "pro choice" to "PRO DEATH" because if you are not for LIFE then you are for death.

              I think that is misunderstanding the issue. Nobody is "for" abortion; there are simply many people who believe that option should remain open and that it is for the individual herself to decide how to handle an unwanted pregnancy. Many people don't believe that life is formed at the moment of conception and that life is best understood as occurring when the embryo becomes a viable baby, not before. If you don't believe that a cluster of cells several weeks old is "life", then naturally you would not see abortion as "death" but as a simple medical procedure. Many people who are personally against abortion for themselves still support the woman's right to choose whether or not to give birth, but nobody is pro-death.

                Open Question To All:

                If Roe v. Wade was removed, do you think the people in your state would vote to make some unneeded abortions illegal?

                  Likewise. I think those who consider themselves "pro-life" should actually call themselves "anti-choice". Because that's exactly what you are advocating: no choice for parents over their own families. Admit it.

                    Really? So you think that just because people are against aborton, they're against all choices? What a broad brush you paint with.

                      PROUDLY!!

                      That's right! I'm AGAINST people having the CHOICE to MURDER.

                      You are too, actually. I don't recall seeing you at the last rally to overturn homicide laws.

                          Angyl,

                          I appreciate your honesty.

                          The two are not analogous. However, I have never been to pro/anti-euthanasia rallies, either. And that's more analogous. I see lots of hand-waving saying euthanasia is murder, too--but really, the whole realm of living wills, when are they "dead", etc., is a gray area and a family matter. The *LAST* thing I want for a family during this extremely difficult time is a bunch of governmental regulations, and authorities in the hospital interviewing everybody, making the determination on the family's behalf when/when it's not murder. I have seen this before (in a child abuse case). In the end, all the bureaucratic red tape on a family matter stemming from these two controversies benefits nobody.

                            Euthanasia is legal in 1 state. (Oregon)

                            "bureaucratic red tape"
                            That sounds like Roe v. Wade.

                            Did the people vote for Roe v. Wade?
                            No.

                            Did the people elect the justices ?
                            No.

                              Part of the point of the judicial branch is that it is not directly elected, because the government needs a branch that does not have to worry about re-election every four years and thus does not have to slavishly follow the majority opinion all the time.
