Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Today's politics are a Pro-choice vs Pro-Life debate. We introduce the 3rd option: Pro-Mom. We hope to end 'no-choice abortions' with a series of alternative 'choices' that overcome the social economic penalties of motherhood. We believe there is no such thing as a 'Pro-choice' abortion until there is a true Pro-Mom choice free of the inter-generational crime and poverty faced by most young mothers today. That's not choice, but blackmail. This goes to clarify why I did not choose any slots offered in your questions above. They are based upon the Conservative vs Liberal paradigm which too often is based upon a contrived dichotomy ever more removed from the day to day of your average American. In contrast, we look for '3rd Options' overlooked by two party debates. Below is my response to each question in order you asked:

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

My response to each question in order you asked: 1) Lifestyle is the simple solution to today's healthcare crisis irrespective to how effective Obamacare or any other such programs. 2) Abortion has now crossed over into a financial model from one of lifestyle (Pro-choice) vs moral (Pro-life). Resolve those social economic issues is the best approach to addressing the abortion issue. (As for this question: Divinity is the bases equality of our Constitution - no more room to write more r

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

3)Debit Cards with $100 per refugee is the far faster (weeks vs decades) immediate, affordable (billions vs hundreds of billions) and effective at tracking, helping and coordinating immigrants. 4) Start with the recognition that Isis is Iran's terrorist for their persecution of Sunnis during the Democratic process offered by America. Stop fighting Iran's war for them. 5) Much decide how if we will have dozens of countries with nukes in the next 20 years or none. I have strategy for this. 6) Marriage itself is a religious ceremony that no American should be required to participate in - much like any religious function. 7) Is there one basic measure that we can agree to as a country for math, English, etc? 8) More then vetting, create 5 year objectives of learning of US ways for re-settling 'New Syria.' 9) Start with covering full cost of damages of oil to measure if too much or too little. 10) Workers are GI Joe of market based global economy. How strong do you

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

No Answer

Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

11) Lifestyle Insurance would reduce gov't healthcare by upto 50% ($1.5 trillion a year for feds, about the same from states & county). Social Security would be worth $40 trillion if it was its own company and reduce feds and states by about 3rd of their entire budget. Just two examples of how to 'reduce size of gov't.' 12) A well regulated militia is the 'regulation' required by the Constitution. 13) Direct Action Democracy - allows for us to vote on issues directly. 14) Public Private partnerships provide this phase of USA with the greatest number of opportunities at this point. 17) Once marriage is recognized as a religious institution with civil marriage its gov't counter-part as prove to it, then gov't re-phrasing marriage is the end of separation between state and religion. 18) Need to up-date voting process. 19) US need reset terms of foreign policy which would achieve much the same purpose by placing the onus on Israels enemies. 20) Taxes should be desig
