Do you know anything about Jane Roe?
You are the most uninformed person that have ever addressed the subject of abortion.
Why don't you educate ya dumb ass on "choice" and "duress". You have been hawking expenses, expenses, expenses like a one eyed parrot and not once have you said "duress".
YA HAWKING CHOICE WHEN IN FACT, 80% OF ABORTIONS ARE NOT BY CHOICE, THEY ARE FROM DURESS.
---------
Upwards of 80% of women who choose abortion do in under duress,coerced by fear under heavy social pressure from friends, family, boyfriends, and work. In other words, most women chose abortion because they feel they have no other choice.
Norma McCorvey, known more famously by the pseudonym “Jane Roe,” told us the story of how one mother called in to schedule an abortion for her daughter. Norma asked the mother whether her daughter wanted the abortion, and the mother said succinctly,“it’s not her choice.”

Deciding whether to spend the next twenty or so years being a mother or having a carefree and childfree life during your teens and twenties. Its a clear choice with no pressure whatsoever

If you want to defend the murder of the innocent unborn, go for it.

I oppose abortion, I'd like more restrictions and more parental involvement. The state has failed to protect our children from STD's, unwanted pregnancy, teen motherhood and abortion

It's not the state's job to protect your children; it's yours. It's not everyone else's responsibility to give up rights because you can't do your job.

You're correct, of course. My humblest apologies.

Agreed. I find it amusing, not to mention hypocritical, that conservative parents who will only permit inadequate forms of "sex education," IF they permit sex ed programs at all, are the first to complain about the "lack of state protection" when their teen daughter gets pregnant or their teen son causes a pregnancy.

I guess it didn't occur to them they needed to do a lot more than give the standard "just say no" line with no explanation WHY teen sex is a BAD IDEA.

It's not the state's job to fund abortions using taxpayer money. Abortion murders the innocents and occasionally maims their mothers.

Then it's also not the state's job to support babies born to people who can't support them. Let them die of disease and poverty. It'll save you a whole dollar out of your taxes.

Why should they remain sex free if the guys wear a condom?

What exactly is the problem with abortion ? I've never understood this. Explain to me what the problem is. I want to know from a person who thinks its wrong. I have a few theories why its considered wrong.

Apparently, it's not the state's job to EDUCATE teens on the facts of how unwanted pregnancies happen either, judging from how many BACKWARD states allow that useless abstinence-ONLY form of "sex ed."

I guess it's not the job of many parents as well, considering how many teens from backward states like Mississippi get knocked up by the time they are 16.@@

Please do not pretend to care about mothers woman/girls. The only thing you care about is that HER womb is patrolled and regulated by the state to produce the results YOU want. Don't insult our intelligence by pretending to give a damn about women.

Half of all abortions murder unborn girls and every botched abortion harms the unborn's mother too.

I've never promoted criminalizing abortion, I'm here to make the moral argument; abortion is wrong.

Dragonpat doesn't get it. There's a difference between a state that uses taxpayer money to murder the unborn and a state that uses taxpayer money to feed, clothe, shelter and educate the needy.

Every medical procedure that goes wrong harms the patient; it doesn't make the procedure immoral or irresponsible. Every patient is apprised of the risks and either accepts them or refuses the procedure.

Abortion is wrong in your opinion, and you are free to act accordingly. No one else has to agree with you or act as you wish them to.

Some states do both. If you don't think we should pay for abortion, then I have the same right to demand that those who bear children pay for them without state funds.

Every abortion ends in death; that's how it differs from other medical procedures. Abortion murders the unborn.
