In relation to politics, there shouldn't even be *any* discussion of people's personal beliefs. Talk about abortion all you want, its morality or not, etc., but please do not continue to encourage nonseparation of church and state by tying it in with politics thus government, ie, the state.
All this talk goes against the Constitution. Separation of church and state means that it is irrelevant what your neighbor believes as long as he or she does you no harm, period. I would like people who feel differently about abortion rights (both sides) to keep their opinions out of any discussion of politics, ie, the state. I am appalled even at the coining of the phrases "pro-life Democrats" and "pro-choice Republicans" as it furthers the nonseparation of church and state.
"The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg."—Thomas Jefferson
