    If the system worked.
    Republicans could trade a moratorium on the death penalty for restrictions on abortion.

    The system doesn't work, so if you are a democrat you are supposed to fight ANY limits on abortion and if you are a republican you better support the death penalty.

    Does anyone else see how messed up this two party system is?

    "Disputed claim": typical MSM distraction tactic
    What should be in dispute is any "evidence" that pain receptors are not active at 20 weeks, or even earlier.

    What should be even more in dispute is any assertion that innocent human lives should not enjoy Constitutional protection from the moment of conception.
