The numerous comments that follow his post cover every angle of the debate. There's the timeless question, when does life begin, which some people say cannot be determined by science.

What's the point of Proposition 48 anyway? Here's the text:

Isn't it a thinly disguised attempt to outlaw abortion? What's wrong with giving women a choice of what to do with their own bodies? Where in the world do legislators, many of whom are men, get the idea that they should control this issue? From their religion, that's where. And that's the problem.
What's your opinion? Is the abortion issue an instance where church and state are intertwined? Is that a bad thing?
