Opposition to the Mexican-American War was mostly among abolitionists, who felt that the war was being fought to expand the area under which slavery could be legal and that the war had no legitimate cause. Notable among those who opposed the war were Abraham Lincoln, who in his only senate term sponsored resolutions asking whether the Mexicans fired on US soldiers on their soil or on US soil (or in the region disputed between Mexico and the US at the time), and Stephen Douglas who called the war the "rape of Mexico."
