  • Because ppl are passionate about what they believe. It's really not that hard to understand. The problem is that ppl dont want to admit that what THEY believe DOES NOT belong in politics.

  • I don't know, but I think they are convinced that their opinion will prove someone wrong, but they haven't figured out yet that an opinion is a personal view, not a fact. You can argue facts, but you can't argue your belief and try to prove other people wrong.

    I think I'm on to something here....

    What kills me is how many abortion questions have been asked & flooded with answers on here and people still get heated over it. You know those people answering have already answered like 500 of them prior to that. lol

  • Because it's about the life of an unborn baby. People are so passionate about lives of the unborn. Passionate either if it's for or against abortion. I think it's atopic that can be fought over all day everyday with no end. No one is right. In some opinions Pro-lifers aren't right for telling a woman she cannot terminate a pregnancy no matter what the circumstances. In other opinions Pro-choicers aren't right for saying a woman should have the right to take that life. No matter what someone is wrong.

  • Because moms are the only group of people on earth who can debate the topic from the perspective of having grown and delivered a life. They are going to have the strongest opinions on it because pregnancy is something they've actually experienced rather than just read a book about or watched on Discovery Health.

  • It's not just abortion, it's almost every topic that comes up. People have their own opinions and most believe that what they think is right, and everyone else is worng. It's just the way things are. So for every topic out there, it will be debated, debated, debated and will never be resolved because everyone is always "right." =)
