Why do conservatives say they want small government but want to outlaw abortion? ?

And same sex marriage? That seems like huge government.

    Oh, silly. Conservatives want smaller government *for them*.

    When it comes to regulating how *other* people live, well...they're fine with spending whatever it takes.

    On abortion: Pro-life means you believe the fetus is a human life and therefore a felony to abort as it's murder. Now since you wondering about a conservative mindset, then the pro-life stance must be taken as true. So, what you are saying is that you think it's hypocritical to wish for smaller government and have laws outlawing murder.

    Because they can see the agenda of the New World Order being pushed through Abortion. It's connected to the "Depopulation" conspiracy at foot.

    Abortion was never legal...until the government got involved.

    I don't care about 2 consenting adults getting a paper that says they're legally together, if that's what they want...But, it seems that Christians have claimed the word 'marriage'...So...Since gay people are proud that they are 'different', I don't understand why they wouldn't want a different word for their union, instead of using the Christian's thing...What's wrong with calling it a civil union?...Wiccans/Pagans call it a 'handfasting'...Why fight if you don't have to?

    Anyway...The government should not be involved in ANY marriage/civil union/bonding/relationship/sexual partnership/whatever...and if you don't want a baby, don't make one

    Conservatives and Liberals are two sides of the same coin. Neither side wants less government.

    The Constitution mentions nothing about abortion or marriage. Therefore it should be left for the states to decide for themselves.

    The Feds should butt out.

    Outlaw Abortion

    Regulate and outlaw gay Marriage

    Continue to give billions a year to big Corporations that are making record profits anyways.

    and the list goes on.

    They are no different from Democrats on the size of Government, they just want their own version of it.

    Abortions should be done in a back alley with a coat hangar. This way the mother can get the shame she deserves.

    Same sex marriage has always been outlawed. Abortion is murder and used to be illegal as well.

    Liberals are the ones dragging the government into things trying to change things.

    Conservatives want big government in your sexual organs, Democrats want big government in your bank account. Which ever one hurts you the least, vote for them.

    Your a damn idiot since when does illegal homos and abortions mean we need more governors? God your liberal brain must've been deprived of oxygen as a child or something. Momma probably tried to abort you with a pillow and a con saved you just not in time to keep you from going retarded.
