    As I previously stated, by here I meant my city. I do not live in any of the cities listed in that link and the closet one is 83 miles away. Yes, people from this city do get an abortion, but they travel to do so.

    This is what I'm responding to. Although the closest abortion clinic may be 83 miles away, it is NOT in a different state if you live in TN.

    The four places listed on your list are between 112 and 216 miles from here.

    ETA - I found the 83 miles from planned parenthood's website. I can assure you that I am correct.

    I am not debating whether or not it is 83 miles from your house, as I have no clue where in TN you reside. If you live in TN it doesn't matter how far, it is not in a different state. That's what I was referring to.

    You are incorrect. The closest abortion clinic to my house is in Marietta, GA according to the planned parenthood website.

    Aside from this whose on first nonsense, I'm really curious if you guys feel that the Muslims in our military should be protected from military leaders making anti muslim statement from a position of authority? I do. Further, were he a muslim inducing you to, say, pray to Allah or convert to Islam would you be 100% okay with that, in the same way that you seem okay with him doing so from a Christian perspective?
    Jessica80 and blather like this.

    Yes to the first question, and no to the second. All religions should be protected and respected, and so should those who choose to not follow any religion. No one should be preached at from anyone, Christian or Muslim or Hindu or anything else, unless they ask to be. Military or not.
    The number of U.S. states in which a person can marry the person they love regardless of gender: 30 and counting!

    In my opinion, it would not be ok for a Military leader or other boss to force someone to pray (Whether Christian or Muslim). It would be fine in my opinion, for either a Christian or Muslim to talk about their faith or teach others about it if the other person was interested and wanted to learn about it.

    So you agree with the military's position. Me too.

    That is not the position of the wording in the OP. It is very possible that the OP is wrong, but that is what we had to go on for much of the debate.
