Who’s playing "God" here?

Just barely into Pat McCrory's first term as the second Republican governor elected in North Carolina since 1901, the liberal/progressive minions of George Sorsos' money and The New York Times are in frontal assault of him.

Gov. McCrory was the mayor of Charlotte for 14 years, where Republicans are outnumbered 3 to 1. His support came from all political sides. The city is booming and the proof is in the pudding. He achieved great results. I am pleased to have cast a vote for him.

The governor is stepping on tender toes. In old "skool" speak: man up. The sensitive toes he is stepping on are the so-called "War on Women" crowd, masking abortion rights/laws as "health care" issues. The new abortion law is simple and humane. An abortion can't be done after 20 weeks unless there is substantial risk that would threaten life and the mother's health. Does that make McCrory a Nazi?

After 20 weeks in a mother's womb, it's a viable human being. When the mother of my oldest daughter was 16 weeks, my daughter could kick a coffee cup off her belly.

Since Roe v. Wade became law in '73, we have destroyed 56 millions human beings. A potential nation. More than the population of Spain. Thirty percent of these abortions were black children under the guise of "women's rights.

I wonder if we, as an educated society and advanced people, have lost our moral compass. Seems as all those in favor of abortion … are alive? With all the basic and inexpensive methods of birth control, women can stand tall behind the guise of "women's health" and terminate a human being because it was a mistake and a problem.

    Tapping my fingers, still waiting for Fuller to post his medical credentials in order to overturn a law based on substantiated medical fact.

    Mentioning god is not an acceptable arguing point, as America is a democracy, and not a religious theocracy, unless I’m wrong?

      “Rocktheboat?” I’m agnostic so I don’t come at abortion from a religious perspective. I use “playing God” as a figure of speech. When a woman decides to put an end to life, and that’s what abortion is… they’re being the “be all, end all authority.” As American citizens, we respect wildlife more than we do human life. “Endangered species,” etc. If an American citizen destroys a Bald Eagle nest, eggs, etc., it is a $250,000 fine and/or two years in federal prison. Like I wrote… all those in favor of abortion are alive and well. Imagine that…

    Though I’m not sure of what your point is in your rebuttal letter, I do agree 100% that abortion should not be used as an alternative to simpler forms of birth control. Even so, I don’t consider myself one of those “life begins at erection” types.

    However, I still think anyone who does elect to have an abortion has probably agonized with the decision already and doesn’t treat it like a walk in the park as some anti-abortion advocates would assert.

    Specific comments made within the past few years from doofus lawmakers about “legitimate rape” and “it should be illegal even in cases of rape or incest” bring to mind “The Handmaid’s Tale”, a chilling what-if novel that deals with women’s rights to their own bodies and arguably not on many anti-abortionist bookshelves.

    As for the bald eagle analogy, I think the fact that a bald eagle is an endangered species (thanks to DDT use back in the day) has something to do with the fine.

    My real worry is that your original letter might encourage pregnant women everywhere to start balancing cups of hot coffee on their bellies and thus produce an entire generation of newborn caffeine addicts (by osmosis of course).
