    Its amazing these hypocritcal Jesus folks will scream about abortion to hell with the law and the hard decision a woman must make in such a decision, yet they say nothing about the thousands of children in need of adoption or the thousands of children who are living in poverty and lets not forget you don't hear one thing from these rightous freaks about thousands of young military solders who go to war and die fighting for this country however, when you listen to these talk to Jesus freaks, they care less about the living but are wrapped up with a fantasy about the un-born.

  • Typical DC BS

    @Ward 8: If every one of these people had adopted a child, I would give them credit for marching and being pro-life.

    People here in the USA need to mind their own business and leave decisions regarding abortion to the pregnant woman and her doctor.

  • Love this

    Love this photo. Two people, one of non-reproductive age and the other sans uterus, congratulating themselves while a young woman stands in the middle. Nice composition.

    Either a baby in the womb is a life, or it is not. If you choose to kill the baby in the womb you will have to live with that the rest of your life and into eternity regardless of what you think. Truth exists, and we can know it.

    in response to Love this: There were over 300,000+ people there at the March, from pregnant mothers, to people to old to walk without help. And everyone though somber, was joyful and happy. Have you been joyful lately?

  • Reality Check

    @Ward-8: Many more adoptions would be taking place if it was easier to do so. That so many people who want to adopt have to go to a foreign country to do it because of all the government red tape here at home, while that same government encourages unrestricted access to abortions speaks volumes about our country's priorities. The "fantasy" you refer to is anything but, and as a 25-year military veteran who has seen combat, I can tell you there is a HUGE difference between that and the abortion issue. See, I VOLUNTEERED to join the military, VOLUTARILY re-enlisted several times, and even VOLUNTEERED to deploy. The unborn baby doesn't volunteer to get killed and they have no idea what's going on as they're being sugically dismembered. Finally, regarding your allegation about not caring for the poor, I donate thousands of dollars, food, and clothing to help the poor. What about you?

    @ward-8: You are mistaken. There are thousands of Christian families who want desperately to adopt, but can't due to cost and red tape. There are also dozens of organizations - run and supported by Christians - who care for needy people of all ages and in many, many countries. Look at groups like Angel Tree, Compassion, World Vision, for some of the most visible examples. Much, if not most Christian work, however, happens under the radar at the local level, with Christian individuals and families reaching out to help those in need in their own neighborhoods. My family has personally given the past 10 years to helping with leprosy in south Asia. Please look past the bad examples of "Christians" you might have known and see the truth of people who really follow Jesus.
