    It sure should, how can we elect a senator that is so dumb to believe, and make no mistake he believes it or he would not have said it.
    I get tired of politicians saying something and when the fire arises, they say they misspoke!! They knew what they were saying, but I also get my panties in bind when someone wants to take a COMMENT OUT OF CONTEXT!!!

    I am trying to understand the logic of Romney's position on abortion. I can understand and respect the Republican patform position of a constitutional ammendment to ban all abortions without exception since the base of the party believes that life begins at conception. What I don't understand is the postion that allows for abortion in the cases of rape and incest. If abortion is murder, and the unborn child has rights, how is this different in the case of rape or incest. It's either murder or not, correct? I just want someone to explain this position to me. I would love for Anderson to ask this question to someone who holds this position especially Mitt Romney.
