House tables resolution commemorating Roe V. Wade decision
CONCORD _ To avoid a lengthy debate on an emotionally charge issue, the House on Wednesday tabled a resolution commemorating the recent 40th anniversary of the landmark Roe V. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortions.
The roll call vote to table was 239-111.
The resolution says the court in the decision “protects every woman’s ability to make her own personal medical decisions, without the interference of politicians.”
It says the House “recognizes the critical importance of continued access to safe and legal abortion.”
Opponents argued that the resolution is purely political and “celebrates the destruction of over 500 million pre-born children.”

It says the House "recognizies the critical importance of continued access to safe and legal abortion". I couldn't agree more. I personally, would NEVER get an abortion because of MY beliefs and morals. However, I am truly happy that EVERY WOMAN gets to make her own choice as to HER beliefs. I know woman who have gotten an abortion and never healed emotionally from the scars. On the other hand, woman who were adament it was the BEST DECISION for them. I even know a woman who was raped and actually kept the baby due to her religious beliefs about abortion. She loves her baby unconditionally, does'nt matter where he came from. My point is, a woman should be allowed to exercise that right. I don't judge any of these woman on the choices they have made. Their is only one true judge and that is GOD, so CHILL and let our father do his job. Peace and love everyone

Once again the common sense House devoid of the radical, Republican extremists shows common sense. Some believe life begins at conception and others do not. In the secular world why be divisive when it is not necessary and doesn't accomplish anything worthwhile?
