Kudos to Tom Rogers for pointing out abortion will always be with us.

Before it was safe and legal, desperate females stuck hangers up their wombs, filled them with poison, threw themselves down stairs, or found a butcher to mutilate their bodies, which frequently left them infected, infertile or dead. If Roe v. Wade is reversed, it will be that way again.

Don't want your taxes to pay for abortion? Come on! We don't get to choose or know all the distasteful practices government embraces.

Against God's word? What about, "Judge not lest ye be judged," or "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone?" If you condemn every sinner, there'd be no one left to receive God's grace. First, take the speck out of your own eye.

It's simple: if abortion is wrong for you, don't have one. Another's decision is between her and God alone.
