    The hypocrisy of the dracnoian neo-cons and the far right is truly amazing at times. These pro-lifers aren't very pro-life at all they say abortion is murder, give it up for adoption instead, there are lot's of people who want to adopt if that's the case, why don't these pro-life people adopt themselves? Why does the pro-life crowd stop caring about a person once it comes outside of the mother's womb? The pro-life crowd is usually against universal health care and is against state sponsored funding to mother's who make a decision to keep their baby if they were considering an abortion. Hypocrisy much? Abortion is a legal medical procedure that has been legal in the United States for decades and so long as this country remains a developed country, abortion will always be legal. Republicans on the far right are using it as a wedge issue to try and prevent health care access for all Americans. That's shameful and sad.
