Since when do what politicians run on mean that's what they think or want to do. Democrats run on tons of things they never do like affordable housing.
Lmao, k. That's 1/4
It's a pretty bad reason. Forcing someone to do something natural is worse than murdering someone?
Yes, especially when it's not something we wouldn't even force on corpses. Organ donation requires consent, so should pregnancy. What is your ethical and moral reason for forcing somebody else to be and stay pregnant, and why should there or shouldn't there be exceptions for rape, incest, and health?
For that matter, at what point is an abortion "murder" in your eyes? And be specific, we're writing laws now. (I do not have to consider when it would be "murder", as it never is, even if the person is 6, 12, 23, 38, or whatever. It is never right for the government to force you to use your body to keep or save a life)
I've told you why many times.
"Other people think so" is not a reason, lest you start jumping off of bridges because other people are doing it.
The country is more progressive than conservative. A republican has only won the popular vote once since 1988. And, again, like I mentioned many times, you're all voting for the same team, the democrats and republicans are the same team. All the high level stuff you want to change isn't gonna change because they both want those same things. What's something like gay marriage even accomplishing when looking over the entirety of everything? Gay people just get some tax breaks, they'd still be living together and having the same family and everything without gay marriage being legalized. Little things like that are just a distraction so you think you won something major.
...Gay marriage lets gay people visit their dying long term partners in hospitals, get covered on their spouses insurance, and automatically leave property to their spouses and next of kin instead of frequently hateful families. To be able to love your partners without going to prison for sodomy. This is absolutely massive
in the wake of being denied literally *all* of those things during and after the AIDS crisis. You are fortunate enough to never worry about that, to never have to
worry about that.
This shit is all living memory for me. You literally have zero goddamned clue what's at stake.
And you're right: the mainstream democrats wouldn't hesitate to burn that down if sufficiently desperate. Because they're more than happy to shift to the right in a futile attempt to appeal to the non-existent centrist voter because we have two right wing parties, unlike the past. And taking a long shot at winning the presidency anytime a billionaire libertarian gets a wild hair up his ass gets antsy isn't gonna change that.
