    Because their economy is so great.
    Many migrated to Oregon and Washington state and populated those states.

    As such, many simply see Abortion as the taking of a life (Which, is a correct assumption, according to the science of biology....) They just seem to feel strongly that the taking of an innocent life is wrong. I guess, the argument is whether it is a "human" life, or, just an Invasive Fetal Tissue Growth, akin to cervical cancer.

    I can't really explain why many do not want Sex taught in schools. Some of my friends who have teenage children seem to feel that in doing so, the schools are encouraging premarital sex (And, yes, some still have a problem with that....) I say, 'what the hell.' If a kid learns how to shag well in high school (or, middle school, even), that just means he or she will be very popular in college, and, have mastery over one of life's most important skills.)

    For my part, I take no issue with someone killing their fetus, baby, or toddler. (Although, killing a fetus, late-term, or a toddler does seem somewhat extreme in my opinion....) Still, though, that's their business, not mine. Would be nice if we had some consistency in the whole matter, though.

    If Liberals have taught me anything, it's that life really isn't all that precious or rare, or special.
    If conservatives thought life were precious, we'd have medical care based on need rather than on ability to pay. We'd see the homeless as precious, and worthy of help just because they exist, and not shun them. Every child would have an equal shot in life, a safe home, neighborhood to grow up in, and quality education.

    As it is, we value life based on the income each person generates, and divide the world into makers (which, oddly enough includes people who have money, but don't work) and takers, that can be defined as people who labor, but don't get paid much.

    As long a worth is defined by dollars, life is only as precious as the balance in one's bank account.
