Clearly we need to sever I-5 at Everett city limits and have motorists enjoy its picturesque streets.

@22: We're not being negative, it's just that they're very loud and I get nervous, and it scares the cats.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to agree with you on this one Dan. What a world we live in.

Why don't the cops do the "ON THE GROUND!" - face down and arms spread? That takes away momentary lowering of the hands by abiding suspects that can be misinterpreted by the police.

@30, Ken, I think it's more like "things don't happen overnight" akin to interracial marriage and Jim Crow laws than Roe v Wade. But we shall see.

@57: Go ahead and "straw man" me all you want, it doesn't make what you are saying about my views any more accurate.

@52, well, nobody else can evaluate the result of that equation but you, right? I'm not disagreeing with your inherent rights.

@39: I appreciate your input. I think though that logic dictates that an unplanned pregnancy can be for some couples an unwanted pregnancy. The difference is not that great.

For those who believe that abortion is totally out of the question (by the state or by their own disposition) then the choice is clear to carry the baby to term and to rejoice on the blessings of one of life's unexpected turns.

For those that consider abortion (because of rape, incest, health, economics, no partner, or whatever reason) the choice stands as the woman's and the woman's alone. I've never been against that. But I will be the first to advise that it takes a lot of effort, except in the obvious cases, to justify having an abortion in any sense of spiritual or philosophical context. That emotional baggage is also a factor to consider for the woman.

Again, I'm not against choice but as one ages we are generally haunted by the "if only" thoughts. It's best to make those "if only"'s into realities as far as bringing life into the world.
