The From Catholic Online : "Adding to the argument that abortion threatens one sector of American society over others, Catherine Davis, president of The Restoration Project, pointed out to the great racial disparity of women currently getting abortions."

<quoted text> What was there to misunderstand..you clearly said in post #3170:Is that murder?(You pose the question to me for my opinion) I say it's the ultimate in PREMEDITATED killing

IVF embryos are created with the idea of killing some of them as part of the process. I'd say that was premeditated killing - wouldn't you?
(Notice, I didn't refer to it as 'murder'....I asked if YOU did. You still haven't answered this. Nice dodge.)

You do know..you're the one who brought up people with disabilites right?
With your statement here in post # 3170: "One example: a fetus with a severe brain anomaly, which will most likely result in a child with severe to profound developmental disabilities." What would be different for "this pregnancy" vs.. any other?
You'd have to ask a woman who has aborted a pregnancy because of that diagnosis.

Hint: it's the main reason for most later term abortions....in addition to saving the mother's life.

You've repeatedly indicated that abortion should be a crime, and consistently avoided stating what you think the punishment should be for obtaining one.

But yes, I brought up developmental disabilities first, in a different post, on a different topic - specifically how you would have a woman punished under those circumstances.

I wouldn't.
But then again, I don't believe abortion of a non-diagnosed fetus is, or should be, a crime, either. Pretty sure you do.

It's not wrong to enjoy sexual pleasure, and it's not wrong to decline gestation...even if sexual pleasure results in a pregnancy.
Well if you enjoy sexual pleasure (with men) and it's no crime to admit it..then I don't see how anyone can claim women exist for male pleasure and have a problem with it..do you?

There are two courses of action: gestate or abort. Personally, I don't care which the pregnant women decides on. Obviously, you feel the need to involve yourself in her decision.
A real lady knows when to mind her own business.

I get it. I have two kids, and loved them dearly...anticipated their arrivals with effervescent happiness...just like I did when I was pregnant with the five who didn't become 'babies'.
A woman who doesn't anticipate the arrival of her child, with joy and curiosity, looking forward to being a mom, is NOT benefiting in ANY WAY from being pregnant - not even psychologically.
But it was a nice try.....
You asked about pregnancy period..you didn't make a distinction in expectant mothers....

Again, what you 'thought' is your concern. What I said was, Abortion is a pregnancy issue. Only pregnant people have abortions.

As a political issue, however, there are many un-pregnant people who have an opinion on the subject. Mine is that my opinion of whether or not abortion is 'wrong', is moot, unless I'm the one pregnant.

Yours seems to be that your opinion should be codified for everyone pregnant..

I stand by this statement. But if you can show where she IS obtaining a psychological benefit, from being unwillingly pregnant, I'll be happy to give it some thought.

The fetus doesn't have a right to life. If it inherently had a right to life, there would be no such thing as miscarriages (which is a form of abortion). The fetus and all human life is **dependent** on the mom.

As with anything, there must be boundaries within allowances. There is a point where there is a visible heartbeat etc..and goes from fetus to the next stage of development. At some point, abortion should and is off the table.
IR BW wrote:
<quoted text> People are told legally all the time what they can or cannot do with their own bodies.... Most criminal charges have been overturned..not civil when a pregnant woman takes illegal drugs and harm the unborn...
Well as we've all kinda agreed with--no matter what side of this issue we fall on..that, just because something is legal sure doesn't mean it's right. Women should most certainly have autonomy to their own bodies.

If women are going to be blamed for social ills in regards to child rearing, women themselves should certainly be able to decide if they want to participate to begin with. If they aren't in a good place mentally, physically, emotionally, financially, they should have the choice to do what is good from them. Abortion is a much more humane act than having a baby who has addictions.
IR BW wrote:
<quoted text>
Nobody has ever denied that a fetus needs a host.... We're debating if the host has (or should have) the right to subjugate it's dependent..
Subjugation is not the appropriate word for this issue. Women didn't decide to carry life..therefore, they shouldn't be blamed for it.

Babies and children are persons. They are outside of the body and not dependent on a host for growth. That is a huge difference.

Let me make it simple, for the simple:
What are the 'woman's body benefits to gestation'?

The fetus itself doesn't benefit the woman's body in any way shape or form....and it doesn't ALWAYS benefit her emotional affect either.
