So I was having a discussion on  Lisa Murkowski's facebook wall and I've been pretty nonplussed lately about how people jsut call each other names without letting any discourse on actual issues take place.

Technically speaking, any sort of policy change, for better or worse, is "reform" so I think it prudent to define what we actually mean by reform instead of just asking for it.

In so doing, I brought up Abortion.  Why not, right?  Good controversial issue that stirs up emotions, no matter which side you're on.  I'm a middle-roader; I think it should not be allowed purely as a method of birth control but should be allowed for uneducated people who don't know better and worse, for rape victims.

I was actually told, I shit you not, that we have to rape our daughters and force them to carry the child in order to defeat Hitler.

......  lolwut?  I........

Good friends, I am shocked.  I do not know what to think of this.  I know that the effect of this announcement is that we're not talking about the issue anymore, but how can we when this sort of nuclear bomb has been used to end the discussion?

What?
