    The government is supposed to be US. As in, We the People.

    Meaning that if We the People decide we want to make sure that healthcare is accessible and affordable to all then that is our perogative (as the people in every other first world democratic nation on the planet have decided that healthcare is a basic right that all are entitled to). If we don't want the government sticking its nose in what we eat then that too is the people's collective decision, and politicians who don't respect that risk losing elections. (I for one think that high fructose corn syrup and trans fats need to be banned as ingredients in food. It wouldn't even affect what you got to eat - you would still be able to eat all the same foods you do now - only the manufacturers would be forced to use less toxic ingredients.)

    And as for me, I will likely never be having any soda in restaurants ever again; unless a specific place has something sweetened with something other than high fructose corn syrup or aspartame, both of which are completely off my menu. (Though it seems I can't avoid HFCS completely, but I refuse to drink anything that contains it).

    We allow such toxic substances as high fructose corn syrup and aspartame to be used in foods and drinks, but in most places in this country being caught with pot will land you in jail. Meanwhile if I want soda sweetened with stevia I have to make the trek down to Whole Foods, and pay a lot more for it.

    Talk to me about health and then advocate for abortion. Im sure I will believe you have health matters in mind.

    I do. I for one believe that abortions should be done in modern medical facilities with sterilized equipment by trained physicians who know what they are doing, rather than in back alleys with coat hangers or other crude tools that should have no business ever being used as surgical instruments. I would also rather see those abortions not happen in the first place, by not having women get pregnant when they don't want to. Which means educated our youth about safe sex practices so as to not result in unwanted pregnancies, not to mention prevent the spread of STD's.

    I would also guess that a pregnant woman ingesting foods laden with trans fats and high fructose corn syrup (not to mention other toxic crap like aspartame) would not be so good for the developing fetus.

    I most certainly do not advocate FOR abortion. I just advocate for a woman's right to choose.

    Easy way to handle that, do not have sex until you are ready to be a mother, or have your tubes tied if you cannot practice self control.

    Or use birth control, or have an IUD implanted (which unlike having one's tubes tied, can be easily reversed once one is actually ready to have children). Or use condoms which have the added benefit of protecting against the spread of STD's as well.

    No good reason to try to inject Biblical morality into this.

    Sure there is, but an atheist refuses it. Im not a bit against birth control btw between a man and his wife. Abortion isnt a valid form of birth control though.
