    I saw a poster once that that read something like this:

    “A man who decides he doesn’t want to be a father is a dead-beat dad. A woman who decides she doesn’t want to be a mother is ‘Pro-Choice.'”

    Not to condone dead-beat dads, but it does make you ponder.

      Good observation, Bob. There is a special place in hell for dead-beat dads, especially to those unrepentant men who force their pregnant wives and girl friends to abort.

    Check out this well-written article on rape and abortion:


    There was a time when I said that exceptions should be made for rape, incest, and life of the mother, but I’m coming around to the view that only the risk of death of the mother is a reasonable excuse to terminate a pregnancy, just as shooting an armed burglar to protect yourself and your family is self defense.

      Excellent piece by the good judge. He says it well. I came around on this issue when I finally confronted the truth that an innocent human being would be killed in any abortion, even in the case of rape.
