The Arkansas AG foamed at the mouth in 2017 to have prisoners executed.

If you are pro-life, good for you, but be consistent. I am not a fan of abortion, but consider it a matter between a woman, her physician, and whatever God she may or may not believe in. I much prefer the Pope's position, that we have no business deciding who lives and who dies, be it an unborn child or a prisoner.

The hypocrisy is overwhelming - a March for Life rally attended by staunch pro-death penalty "christians." A flag-waiving lot which values FREEDOM above all else, bemoaning theocracies like Iran and Saudi Arabia, but who are themselves steering our country away from freedom and toward a theocracy by wishing to overturn Roe v Wade. Only the woefully ignorant or the willfully duplicitous could take such positions. Sadly these are the positions held by roughly half of our political leaders - the ones with a scarlet letter “R” affixed to their names.

If you don't know the difference between an innocent child in the womb and a convicted murderer then I suppose there's not much use in continuing to debate this issue.

A fetus in the womb is not a child. Please keep your religious beliefs out of women's reproductive decisions.

I'm looking at this photo and contrasting it to yesterday's photo of pro-abortion marchers.

I don't see an older woman laughing hysterically over the abortion issue.
(yesterday I did )

I don't see a man with 2 fingers in his mouth trying to whistle.
( yesterday I did )

No freak show picture today.
Yesterday there was.

( 7th paragrah)........Arkansas ranked as one of the top anti abortion states in the nation.

Makes me proud to be an Arkansan transplant from a liberal state.

Not a religious belief on my part. A fact is a fact. It appears that some here think those in favor of capital punishment but opposed to abortion are hypocrites. With that said, let me ask a question. If capital punishment was banned, would you then be in favor of banning abortion as well?

I referred to those executed as being convicted murderers and got flagged and told to "watch your mouth".

BoudinMan says..........." a fetus in the womb is not a child"

What if the entire head is out of the mother and a scissors is thrust into the base of the skull to kill it ?

That barbaric procedure was known as partial birth abortion.
The United States Supreme Court upheld the ban on that barbaric, gruesome procedure and every Democrat campaigning for president at the time voiced their strong displeasure with the Supreme Court.

Yes, Barack HUSSEIN Obama also .
