to the race card
, but used by conservatives.

is much more complicated..
Conservative: If people
don't want babies, they shouldn't have sex. That way, abortion wouldn't even be necessary. Think, liberals, think! Personal
Liberal/Moderate: Ok, so if abortion was banned, it's true
that less people
would have irresponsible sex, and there might be far fewer
abortions. You're right on that one. But what about in cases of rape? You can't mount the "personal
responsibility" defense there - people
don't choose to get raped.
abortion legal only
in cases of rape then.
L/M: Well how are you supposed to know when the hell she's lying then? You'd be encouraging women to lie. Same problem as before, she just has to employ a different method of getting around it. How are you supposed to distinguish between the liars and the true
L/M: In a perfect
world, those things are fully reliable. But they're clearly not. Since
we don't live in a perfect
world, and polygraphs sometimes
fail, we may as well legalize abortion considering that there are many
it's very necessary. Of course there are whores who will use it as birth control. But that's unavoidable.
