Re: Trump Gets Strategic on Abortion

“Donald Trump was quick to recognize this weakness following the midterm disappointment, as he charged at the time, ‘It was the "abortion issue,” poorly handled by many Republicans, especially those that firmly insisted on no exceptions, even in the case of rape, incest, or life of the mother, that lost large numbers of voters.’ That was and is the problem with the abortion issue, and still is today, as it has not been resolved.“ —Michigan

"Florida’s ban on abortion after six weeks is itself a compromise, but not an arbitrary or unreasonable one, Donald Trump notwithstanding. Six weeks is about when central nervous system (CNS) activity begins. (The neural plate, which is the foundation of the CNS, forms at about Day 16.) We identify the end of life with the cessation of CNS activity, so the Florida legislature and Governor DeSantis reasoned, Why not use known CNS activity as the standard for the beginning of life? The only sure standard is protecting life beginning at fertilization — then we know for certain we are not taking an innocent human life. From this understanding, any compromise based on age is not equal justice, but it is saving some lives rather than none.” —Minnesota

“Being fully anti-abortion is a terrible political platform to campaign on because you’re immediately being confrontational toward 150 million women, most of whom ascribe to the ‘my body, my choice’ ideology and don’t want any limits on their body autonomy, even if they’re fundamentally anti-abortion. That is understandable and defensible from a legal standpoint. However, from a moral and ethical perspective, it’s a different argument. Is it moral or ethical to abort a newborn healthy baby on the delivery table because you have the legal right to do so? The centrist opinion is that it is not. A reasonable position is to pick a point in time where the fetus becomes viable, perhaps 15-23 weeks, and contemplate a decision before then.” —New Jersey

“Policies may make abortions rare and legal, but never safe for those waiting their birth. Supporting abortion at any time after conception is pro-death, not pro-life. ‘We, the People’ must choose: 1) either abide our nation’s founding aim to defend the self-evident truth that all are endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, or 2) capitulate and cede our rights to sadistic manipulators satiating their pleasures at the cost of the lives of the most helpless and innocent. ‘I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.’ (Deuteronomy 30:19)” —Missouri

Re: Voter Fraud Looms Large in November

“Voter fraud is alive and well in California. In 2018, enough votes were harvested to overturn five or six congressional seats after the polls closed on Election Tuesday. For the 2020 election, California mailed out a card to verify the names and addresses supposedly of registered eligible voters. You were supposed to sign it and return to receive the mail-in ballot. I received a card for my mother, who died in 1995; my uncle, who died in 2010; and my son, who has lived and worked overseas for the past 20 years. I did not return the cards for the three of them, nor for my wife and myself. Nevertheless, we received mail-in ballots for my uncle and my son, and also for my wife and I. Rinse and repeat for 2022!” —California

Re: Dems Say Terrorism Is a Great Reason for Two States

“The Democrats’ disconnect with reality shows yet again in their tone-deaf repetition of a two-state ‘solution’ for the war between Israel and Hamas. Israel is quite reluctant about the idea. Hamas is dead set against it. Hamas will not accept anything other than the complete destruction of Israel and all of the Jews remaining there, and will literally die trying to get there. The two-state idea is simply unrealistic as matters stand now.” —Minnesota

Re: What Good Is Dynamic Pricing?

“Dynamic pricing may be a legal minefield. Suppose two white families enter a fast-food restaurant about the same time, then a third. Sensing a rush in the making, the managing program adjusts the prices upward for the next customers while the third family is ordering. A ‘race-conscious’ black family enters right then, gets a video of the prices going up as they enter, and immediately calls their attorney to let him know they’ve hit the discrimination lawsuit jackpot.” —Minnesota

Re: ‘No Nukes’ No Longer the Case?

“We get our power here from a nuclear plant. More R&D into future alternative nuclear technologies is long overdue and should be an immediate priority for the federal government (no matter which administration is in office). It should be conducted by the Department of Energy via cooperative development grants with responsible companies in the private sector. The principal focus for R&D now should be on thorium cycle reactor technology because it has the prospect of reburning spent uranium fuel rods now stored at existing nuclear power plants and extending our supply of potential electrical power for multiple decades.” —North Carolina

Re: Some Students’ Lives Matter

“This tragedy, and all others, can be directly laid at the feet of a leftist media that expound no end on anything that will garner them a few bucks. In the 1970s, it was all about abortion. In the 1980s and ‘90s, it was all about the L, then B, then G. Now, they’ve added the T and the + and the rest. Anything to promote destruction of people and our nation.” —California
