What ever happened to seperation of church and state here in America?

Question by Anonymous: What ever happened to seperation of church and state here in America?
Remember the old foundation that America was built on using a seperation between the church and state? With abortion laws, death sentences, war, marijuana legalization, etc, most of these controversies seem to have the church at one side and peoples’ own choices at another. Why can’t we base these decisions on state and the choice’s of the citizen rather than a religion?
In case anyone is seeing this differently than what i’m actually asking, I’m wondering why, for example, the government would completely illegalize abortion because the Catholic Church etc says its immoral. Shouldn’t it be legal, but be in the citizen’s choice as to do it or not?
