I couldn't disagree more

with your statement "since no one really "knows" we should be tolerant on this issue". To me, that's the same as saying, I don't really know for sure if vaccines cause autism, so let's be tolerant and keep injecting babies anyway. That makes no sense to me. If there is even a possibility that a child is being harmed, isn't the sensible thing to err on the side of caution? By the same token, if there is even a remote possibility that that unborn child already possesses a soul, shouldn't we do everything in our power to protect that precious little soul?

I guess what bothers me the most is when so-called libertarians preach self responsibility and accountability except of course when it comes to abortion. 99.9% of unwanted pregnancies are completely AVOIDABLE. Except in the very RARE instances where pregnancy occurs as a result of rape, the pregnant individual CHOSE to be irresponsible and reckless by allowing themselves to get pregnant when they did not want to have a child. Should not these people then have to deal with the consequences of their own reckless behavior? Why do millions of children have to be slaughtered every year simply because people can not act like responsible adults?
