RE: Are You Pro-life Or Pro-choice?

Exactly. Just because I am against abortion doesn't mean I grant my government the right to impost my view on all women. That's the principle here.

RE: Are You Pro-life Or Pro-choice?

Neither. I am morally opposed to abortion and do not approve of it in almost all circumstances. Millions of couples are unable to have children and as a result, all unwanted children should ideally be carried to term and given up for adoption. That said, I am fundamentally opposed to government regu...

James, no selective criticism allowed. Gubernatorial veto power isn't the same in California as that we know at the federal level, and these bills you disagree with had to get through 386 Assemblypersons and State Senators before it ever arrived on Snore Gray's desk.

How do you deport an American citizen? That was part of the holding from the federal judge who invalidated Prop 187 - precluding children of illegal immigrants born in the US from receiving public education is inherently unconstitutional.
