How is it a violation of religious right? Nobody in government is forcing these christians and Muslims to perform or get abortions. Its just legal for an individual to do so. That's like saying the manufacturing of beef and pork is taking away religious rights. What the fuck are you talking about? Federal government is here to uphold the federal constitution. Social issues like CIVIL RIGHTS should apply to all Americans. I don't think somebody like you should have a difficult time grasping something so simple.
I said 'federally funded' abortions, as in people would have to play a part in it (pay for it) or the IRS sends them to jail. That would be a violation of religious rights, a conflict of interest between faith and government. In other words, a violation of religious freedoms. If a chick wants an abortion I say it's both her choice and her right, but she has no right to have others pay for it. I despise the amount of confirmation bias on these boards, why people insist on being herd animals is beyond my comprehension. States have already begun to act on their own and it isn't causing the end of the world, I haven't seen any lynch mobs roaming the streets and nor have I seen armies of homosexuals destroying the 'foundation of marriage', whatever the fuck that means. Arizona passed ridiculous immigration laws and the immigrants started leaving for friendlier states, they weren't lined up and shot in Phoenix.
I tell you what, maybe one day when I feel like joining a cult or wearing an arm band I'll endorse the ideas of everyone else over my own. Maybe I can wear a little bell around my neck and graze in a pasture as well.
