Conservative on Target! 5/21/12

"I have been one who believes that abortion is the taking of a human life … the fact that they could not resolve the issue of when life begins was a finding in and of itself. If we don't know, then shouldn't we morally opt on the side of life? If you came upon an immobile body and you, yourself, could not determine whether it was dead or alive, I think that you would decide to consider it alive until somebody could prove it was dead. You wouldn't get a shovel and start covering it up. And I think we should do the same thing with regard to abortion." — President Ronald Reagan

REMEMBER! Conservatism is a long intellectual tradition, the GOP is a political vessel for those seeking power!
Thought For The Day: The Secret Service scandal was discovered when a disagreement on how much a prostitute wanted for her services came to light.  She wanted $800.00. The Secret Service Agent offered $30.00. How ironic is it that the only person in Washington willing to cut spending gets fired?
Back in 2007, Barack Obama campaigned on the pledge that lobbyists "won't work in my White House!" But The Washington Post reports that a steady stream of lobbyists flows in and out of the White House with regularity, finding that "Obama's senior officials are granting that access to some of K Street's most influential representatives."

Breaking the 'Spiral of Silence': In America, nearly one in three pregnancies end in abortion, which means there are “over 1.21 million abortions carried out every year in the United States.” (Planned Parenthood carried out more than 320,000 in 2010 alone.) At rates this high, if abortion were a disease, doctors would label it a pandemic. If it were a war, historians would call it genocide. And if proponents of death like Planned Parenthood were honest, they would call it what it really is—a post-conception contraceptive that kills a preborn child.
