Abortion is a hot bottom issue in American culture today and it is going to become even hotter (along with the issue of same-sex marriage) during the next decade.

The problem I have with these two issues is that they have a polarizing effect...they divide the American people. Each American has a very strong opinion about these issues, as we should, I am no exception....
