No, its a human rights issue. Both the federal and state governments have a duty and obligation to defend and protect innocent human life. Therefore, innocent human life should be protected at both the federal and the state level.

Agreed. There is nothing more fundamental than the protection of human life. Making it a states' rights issue makes no sense at all, unless we don't believe that human life is of much value.

Contrary to your stated belief, this premise is entirely false. I was going to respond to the other poster, but realized I had a better chance of explaining to you the strategies involved in pursuing the fight this way...I am pro life, period. It has been PROVEN over the past 40 or more YEARS, that fighting this on the federal level is a lost cause. Whenever a state imposes restrictions, the feds overrule it. If this does indeed become a states rights issue ( and according to our constitution, it is ) the battlefields become much smaller, and easier to handle. This can then be attacked with a much greater chance of success. The problem with this approach is that there are so many that attempt to stand above everyone else, with their noses pointed skyward, and their fingers pointed downward towards the masses, that a sound strategy for fighting this cannot be formulated. The other poster holds this view, as he accused me of something that I do not believe. Our rights have been slowly eroded over many decades. To get them back is going to be a battle. I have laid out a battle plan. What is yours? To complain and put down those that are formulating plans that can lead to success??? Now, I await the "Morally Superior" to pick my post apart, accuse me of things I did not say, and then put me down as an inferior being.....
