    Is it logical to abhor the war in Iraq, citing the number of casualties, while supporting a pro-choice stance on abortion?

    oh, I didn't know they were murdering people in the womb in Iraq, stabbing them in the head with scissors, or burning them to death with saline solution.

    I'm asking if it is logical to support abortion (killing) while protesting the war because people are being killed unjustly.

    Of course on this board you wll receive responses that say they do not support abortion they support choice. As if there is a difference.

    You're right on that, preacher. If you stand on "choice" you are in support of abortion.

    I think this question should also be worded the other way.

    It is logical to abhor pro-life while supporting the war in Iraq?

    Murder is murder even if you try to shield it behind a word like innocent. Many of the people of Iraq who are paying the ultimate price are innocent people like you and I just trying to make it through this thing called life.

    Yes, there are accidental deaths anytime there is a war, but at least the intentional murders committed by Hussein and his two sons have been stopped.

    I would like to see the actual numbers as to how many innocent people are dieing now as opposed to how many were dieing when Hussein was in power.

    To easy...

    And that helped stop terrorism how? Hey, if he wanted to go kill Hussein then say that. But don't wrap it in the word terrorism like I don't know the difference. Then also tell me your plan to get us out of the country once Hussein is gone. Surely we knew we couldn't just puck up our shell casings and head back to the USA.

    See answer above but let me add. :BangHead:

    More people were killed by Saddam and his sons and the muslim homicide bombers (Shiite & Sunni) than have been killed by American troops over there. The rhetoric around here based on nothing but Michael Moore is getting overwhelming.

    And to answer the OP, of course it isn't logical. Liberals usually aren't. On any topic.

    How does the amount or the number change the fact or the crime?

    Will God say, you murdered once so you go to shoel.

    You killed twice so you go to shoel, shoel..

    Also, they are not convinced our house is clean when they see pictures of our gang infected streets with drive by shootings and people dying for an initiation. Timothy didn't help our image with the bomb he planted in OK. Then we have the term "postal".

    Explain that to the parents of the dead. I don't think they see a difference.

    The documented number of civiilian casualties is around 90,000 since the invasion began in March 2003, or about five years(18,000 per year).

    - http://www.iraqbodycount.org/

    Looks like under Saddam Hussein the number of civilian executions was around 600,000 over about 24 years(25,000 per year).

    But it does. A child dying is a child dying.
    In fact the war is worse if anything. That is a child the parents wanted (not to sound callused but you know what I mean).

    You have to keep in mind, LeBuick, that social conservatives have acquired a reputation as a group of believing, in practice, that life begins at conception and ends at birth.
