Well, this footage happened at my university, in Stevens Point WI. Despite the seeminly political undertones, the real 'issue` was use of school property. The student depicted, was, if I remember correctly, a student senator and the use of this area for this display (as the particular land was used for such displays) was not cleared through the student body. Clearly, the student was falling back on his personal upset over the implications this display caused. Now, I may not have my facts 100% on this, but its as I recalled reading about it in the paper.

I'm with Mur on this one. I think that`s a legitimate and simple way to lower the number of abortions in America. You should really write a letter to your state and share your ideas. I`m sure people would like to hear your opinion, and you might be suprised at how many people would agree with you on the issue. Who knows, they might take your ideas on abortion laws into consideration!

for those reasons, they wouldn't view it as an easy way out of a tough situation. Because abortion would not be available to them, I believe it would cut down on the number of pregnant teens in the first place.
Also, even though I don`t pay taxes yet, when I do, I do not want my money going towards something I don`t support. If they gave my taxes to orphanages and to kids who are loved and alive, it would be fine. But instead, they give tax dollars to abortion clinics, to dead babies and irresponsible (most of the time) mothers, even though the majority (57%) of American`s are pro-life. I think the states need to hold a vote on this issue, then make a decision regarding abortion laws. After that, I believe that all abortions should be handled at the state level until further decisions are made by our countries leaders and law-makers. Then, they can decide if the law would become national based on the number of pro-life states.

I also believe strict guidelines should be placed. However, I believe that we need to start slowly making laws that would decrease the number of abortions. The first one has already been made (Partial-Birth Abortion Act). I think the second one should be that everyone can have one abortion in their lifetime (unless it's for medical reasons). If everyone was only allowed one abortion, it would decrease the number of abortion deaths greatly. The third law should be that you can only abort if the baby is 8 weeks maximum. 2 1/2 months maximum is very late in my opinion (even though abortion is allowed up until the 2nd trimester). Most women who abort at that time only do it because the father left or threatened them. The last law should be that abortions are completely illegal unless the mother has a medical condition. I say this because most of the women having abortions are teenagers who think "It`s no big deal, I`ll just have an abortion". If abortion was not available to them
