Would lab assistants be prosecuted?
I have heard Senator McCain state that life begins when an egg is fertilized. If he believes this, then I assume he will charge lab assistants with murder when they flush unused blastomeres down the drain at fertility clinics and charge women with manslaughter when they have a miscarriage.

Watch out for 'spreading around'
Just envision Sen. Obama's next steps on his Socialist agenda to "spread the wealth around." After he takes your hard-earned cash to reward those to whom he made his political promises to buy their votes, then what? Well, how about personal property? Do you have more than one car or truck? He can then take them and spread them around to those who don't have one.
How about real estate? Do you own more than a half acre or more than one home? He can take the rest to spread around to those he chooses. Hold onto your hats, folks, and any other apparel with more than one in your closet or chest of drawers.
Marvin Rogers is a natural leader
What does it take to be a good representative for the people of a state House district? It takes knowledge, compassion, a servant's heart and the will to serve. Marvin Rogers is that man for S.C. House District 49.
His opponent, John King, started his political career in Chester, serving on both city and county councils. He made many promises that were never fulfilled, abandoning multiple offices midterm to only fulfill his own dream of climbing a political ladder. What does this mean for the people he was supposed to be serving? They were let down.
If you look at Mr. King's political career, you will see a man who could never complete a full term in either Chester County office. He has challenged two incumbents for S.C. House, only to lose both races. Now he is back making a third attempt.
King should know that people in his district are tired of unfulfilled promises. It is time for a natural-born leader to come in and put the people first, building relationships and revitalizing a broken district.
Family emergencies happen at the most unexpected times. Our heart goes out to King and his family for the emergency that pulled him away from the debate with Rogers on Oct. 16. While missing this debate is understood, why did he miss Tuesday's debate? How can we put our trust in a so-called "leader" and representative who misses yet another debate? Again, e need a natural-born leader who gives his own time to be in the community, who listens to the community and will do what it takes to best represent it.
