    I would like to have a list of all representatives, U.S, and State of Texas that are Pro Abortion or Pro Choice.
    Thank you Jim Pearson

    Max and all other like-minded individuals: Your condescending attitude towards those who espouse culture-of-life values belies the moral bankruptcy in your positions as well as disqualifies any support for those positions you hold. I say, vote on your conscience - a conscience informed by the truth, not man's lowly opinion.

    Great- that should be enough to prevent your meddling in the name of "life." God knows where you people were before this issue became a lightning rod for you to get some plate money.

    To those who suggest that the Republican administration and Congress have done nothing to help the pro-life cause are just repeating soundbites without examining the issue. I suggest you read the pro-choice america/naral website for several concrete examples why they are upset with the past 8 years and why they are freaked out if John McCain wins.

    Second no politician can overturn Roe v. Wade. That is up to the Supreme Court and who do you think will give us a better chance at that. McCain may be a gamble who he would appoint and certainly a Democratic congress would make it as difficult as possible but with Obama you get absolute certain pro-death appointees which will destroy another generation.

    Just look at the states that have tried to restrict abortion on a wide scale like South Dakota. Their constitutional amendment was immediately challenged in court. Sorry but there is nothing a pro-life administration is going to do about that without a change in the judiciary.

    Many state that overturning Roe v. Wade will not solve anything but just turn it back over to the states. Then they complain that the Republicans haven't done enough. Do you not see the correlation? Perhaps nothing gets far because Roe v. Wade is still in place. It must be overturned first before substantial changes will be affected.

    Don't forget that Obama has promised to immediately sign the Freedom of Choice Act undoing any current restrictions on abortion as well as releasing international funding of abortion that President Bush has prevented, i.e. the Mexico policy.

    @ j frantz:"We have had 8-years of a pro-life administration and nothing has changed."

    And nothing ever WILL change. It is amazing how forums like these are such a magnet for self delusion. You will never overturn Roe v. Wade, EVER, no matter who is elected because no elected politician will do what it takes to kill it. And the reason is no politician is going to alienate the female electorate in this country, unless the candidate runs in an ignorant impoverished backwater like Alabama.

    And ass for Anne, what country do you live in? I don't elect anyone to protect my "soul."

    Pathetic minds.

    When it comes to the freedom of the American people, you know bloody well what you can do with your Eucharist. Worship as you will. Don't give us your phony moral certitude that we as a free people should orders from your kind.

    Good day.

    We do not have the right to compromise the word of God. Abortion is killing and it is contrary to the word of God. The problem is that many want to pick and choose the how they want to live despite God's law, they cannot call themselves true Christians.

    Right on, Anthony! I've been posting this same thing wherever I can re: the Eucharist. Seems to me that the time for the Bishops Leadership Council is NOW to stop these hypocrites from receiving the Most Holy Eucharist. It is after all a grave sin to receive Jesus when you flatly refuse to follow in His footsteps!
    Thank you, Anthony, for opening up this "can of open sins".
