Can We Get a Big "AMEN"?

- by Mo (Manassas, VA)

Can we get a big "AMEN" to this column by Thomas Friedman? I typically disagree with him, but for once I think he is dead on correct. Choice snippet:

"...In my world, you don't get to call yourself "pro-life" and be against common-sense gun control — like banning public access to the kind of semiautomatic assault rifle, designed for warfare, that was used recently in a Colorado theater. You don't get to call yourself "pro-life" and want to shut down the Environmental Protection Agency, which ensures clean air and clean water, prevents childhood asthma, preserves biodiversity and combats climate change that could disrupt every life on the planet. You don't get to call yourself "pro-life" and oppose programs like Head Start that provide basic education, health and nutrition for the most disadvantaged children...."

Brings the Abortion Issue into Perspective -- by Tim Ricard

Interesting, it brings the abortion issue into perspective. Pro-life and pro-choice are in conflict and it is over more than just abortion. He references Bloomberg, it is certainly true that his pro-life policies are in opposition to choice.

As the pro-choice argument goes: the government should not control over someone else's body, and Bloomberg disagrees. Why is the prevention of obesity more important than the saving of a fetus's live? Thus I am confused. If sodas are banned, should not abortions be also? Likewise with guns.

He brings up a valid point, but one which neither party are consistant on (basically republicans should be pro-choice and democrats pro-life, or vice versa).
