Voters Reject Abortion, Gay Marriage Ban

Looks like people got sick of the Republican's pushing the line of church and state thinner and thinner. See world, it may take us Americans a little while to come to our senses but we get there.

In a triple setback for conservatives, South Dakota rejected a law that would have banned virtually all abortions, Arizona became the first state to defeat an amendment to ban gay marriage and Missouri approved a measure backing stem cell research.

All these issues as I can see are more about common sense than moral choice. If a person is against gay marriage, well, then don't marry someone of your own sex. If you're against abortion than by all means, have your child. If you're against stem cell research then when you are diagnosed with a debilitating disease then don't tell anyone and slowly pass away without medication. This way you've actually stood up for what you believe without infringing on other peoples freedom. Cool isn't it?

Many voters said they viewed the measure - which lost by a 55-45 margin - as too intrusive, using language that failed to guarantee the rights of victims of rape and incest.

Could this mean that the people of America are coming to their senses? Could this be the beginning of the revolution that will finally give the power back to the masses, cause the government to be "by the people,for the people" again? Probably not. But at least you can marry that flaming homosexual at the office you pretend to hate but secretively are fascinated with and really actually "dig" those bright colors he wears to work.

Well, thank-you, Arizona. Glad to hear there's at least one state that isn't going to put discrimination into their constitution. Sadly, my state isn't as forward thinking.
