Residents Urged To Use Caution As Heavy Rains Bring Flash Flood Warning

States Rights, Thank You

Wednesday, July 11, 2018
Why is that when someone protests the argument of abortion they always trot out this argument against religion as the basis for their opposition claiming separation of powers and so forth. 

The fact is in this the 21st century the choice of birth control can simply be made through other birth control methods such as abstinence or pills, just to cite a couple of examples.

As for me and alot of others we call it murder of an unborn child.
Why is that so difficult to understand if their is no conception then their is no child discussion over yet if their is conception  then a living presence is in the womb we call that a human and aborting that human through surgical means called abortion is murder.  

Lastly it does require a male and female to create a child does the father not have a choice in the matter. If I'm that father then I am siding on the side of God to protect the unborn child. 

We don't yet know how this nominee could vote on the matter, my hope is that SCOTUS would turn it over to the states and let them make the determination that my friends is called States Rights, thank you.
