Also, the way that these bills are worded is much more complex than just:
There are many different parts with Congressmen tacking on completely unrelated legislation to advance their own agenda. Thus, we're only seeing a part of the picture, not the whole story. This whole "pro-rape" angle was clearly cooked up to continue to vilify Conservatives in the eyes of the public.
I completely agree, until I see all this bill involved, I won't condemn the conservatives. I also think some of those immediately vilifying the conservatives wouldn't be so quick to lay it on had they been liberals, judging by a lot of the pass posts I've seen. I think both sides have a lot of trash on it, but at least try to look at it from a non biased perspective till we see all the facts and explanations.

Yea, because liberals are just so nice and don't have any bad things about them at all.... If your comment didn't breath of so much hatred I might be able to agree with you a little bit, but I just can't. I don't think any of them are "pro-death", but many of them are probably "pro-death penalty". I'll assume you just didn't finish it off, but there is a HUGE difference. I'm registered Independent, but I obviousely lean towards conservatism. I would have to say both sides spew pretty close to the same amount, but if I had to choose who did more it would be the left.
