    Wow. No respect for life.

      Who? If you mean Marni or John, I have to disagree. They are the ones who are SHOWING respect for life. But I will agree if you mean the Republicans, however, because they have ZERO respect for life. After all, respect is not quantitative but qualitative. And ALL Republicans care about is *quantity*.

        Yes them. They’re willing to kill a human because they perceive it could make their life slightly better. Seems like you don’t understand science or the concept of life. Review your 9th grade biology. Life is “the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death.” Life is not how much money someone has or what relationship they’re in. Life is basic, its scientific, it’s unique and you, this couple, and pro-choicers don’t have respect for it. You value your finances and your comfort over the amazing phenomenon of life. That certainly doesn’t fall under the definition of respect: “a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.”

        Y’all can keep deleting my comments but that’s just cowardly.

          In order to be a good Progressive, one must be totally impervious to irony…
