Very few abortions are paid for with public funds, and most of those are therapeutic, not elective. On th other hand, we are paying a helluva lot more for kids born to those who can't afford them.

BTW--the woman doesn't have to tell anyone she is pregnant, aside from the medical staff she deals with.

That sounds easy enough, but when a woman is pregnant sooner or later someone must realize that their are more involved the just the womans body. Not to mention that there is a man involved, who must wait and see what the woman chooses to do with "his " baby inside of her body. Then you have many people who are being forced to chip in their money to support such things, so when all is taken into consideration, it involves much more then I'm a woman and it is my body.

What happened to Gerri Santoro is tragic and sad. No one would dispute that. Was it because legal abortion wasn't available to her. Absolutely not. It was because she feared for her life if her husband found out she was pregnant by another man. That woman needed protection from her husband for herself and her children, NOT an abortion.
Had she been protected, she likely would not have made the choice to abort.
Using a photo of her NAKED, DEAD body with ass in the air for all to see, to try to support any argument about abortion needing to remain legal is just an example of exploitation of a woman who obviosuly did not give her permission to be displayed that way.
Right, now where is your disdain for the youtube videos of bloody, dismembered fetus's that are miscarried and removed from the uterus via a D&C.

Bull-f**king-shit. The RCC doesn't allow the use of the word "catholic" without their approval and involvement.

<quoted text> The Colorado Diocese has nothing to do with it. "Colorado Catholic Church" leaders have nothing whatever to do with this case. Catholic Health Initiatives is a company claiming the Catholic moral high ground here and then fighting for the fetus to remain a non-person. The Colorado Springs Diocese is not involved.

My point exactly. According to the PLs, those fetuses are somebody's daughters or sons. It's blatant double standards.

States passed a record 92 abortion restrictions in 2011, more than any other year since Roe.

NARAL president, Nancy Keenan, says the prochoice "postmenopausal militia" isn't cutting it.(Foo, Katie, Bhitler, Chicky, Ocean, cPeter, et. al.)

Keenan admitted in a Newsweek interview that "There is a growing ‘Intensity Gap’ Among Pro-Life and Pro-Abortion Youth." She is concerned that pro-life youth make abortion a much higher priority than do pro-abortion youth.

Poor poor Nancy Keenan....she's so concerned at the changing tide that she has resigned.

(boo-hoo)

Next..........

Oh geez, THAT nonsense again. Sorry, dude (not really), but any man who has a problem with a woman aborting the product of his sperm needs to ask the question "what would you do if you got pregnant?" BEFORE he sleeps with a woman, not afterward.
If he can't be bothered to take this simple precautionary step BEFORE having sex with or beginning a relationship with a woman, then he has only HIMSELF to blame when this situation arises. You don't get to force a woman to gestate an unwanted pregnancy any more than you can force her to abort one. Whether YOU like it or not, it is still the WOMAN's decision, and her RIGHT to make it.
Is there a level of fairness that you are missing? If you expect him to be unconcerned for 'the product of his sperm', why should he be concerned if she keeps 'the product of his sperm'?

I think this whole sex thing will become more and more like a social contract as marriage is. Like a pre nup, we are going to need a pre hookup vaiver.

Look at that poor guy who tried to help out a lesbian couple wanting a child and now he is on the hook for child support because one of the lesbians split.

Why did I need to read the story, which didn't help her case at all.
She directed me to a websight, where clearly the lady died from a botched abortion,before abortions were made legal.
Which I said and believe is very sad.
I also don't need to look at chopped up late term babies, to understand what happenes to them either.
The deal is -if the man who was performing the abortion was caught, He would've been convicted of 2 murders not 1.
Plus I only commented on what I seen.
After seeing the story,it seems they painted a bad picture of the man she was married to, but again no one forced her to start dating another man, or start having sex with the other man, or seek an illegal abortion after the other man gets her pregnant.
So who is to blame for this ladies death?
Who is to blame for any suicides that took place before abortion was made legal?
Abortions "as you guys point out all the time ",were very risky, before they were made legal.
This lady knew that as well, since she lived during this time.
Her family stated that she felt her life threatened becouse she was pregnant with another mans baby.
She gambled, with the intent that she could rid herself of her problem.
She lost.
It is a very sad story, but I agree thet pro choice folks are still using her to push their agenda.
She clearly didn't want others to know she was pregnant, so it is a safe bet she wouldn't want the entire world to see her naked dead body.
Didn't you mention Norma McCorvey earlier, and wasn't it you that brought up another women who was allegedly rushed to a hospital in St. Louis because of a "botched" abortion at PP? What was your purpose in that? Pushing your agenda?

LOL, "Best Post of the Month"? It was as stupid and inept a response as yours is. Now instead of trying to dodge your own stupidity, try answering for it.
I don't see any posts made by anyone named LynneD, so you're not only stupid, your delusional.
Chicky: "If a birth is not successful its dead."
Do you think you're ready to become a Mensa member? You posted this as though you think no one else would know it without your help.
Chicky: "A dead body is NOT a person."
Well, that would depend when they died, now wouldn't it? A person who dies IS a dead PERSON.
Chicky: "If a born baby never breaths on its own after birth, it is DEAD."
LOL, again you think you're posting something profound, or what?
Key words in that statement, "BORN BABY", that "never breathes on its own AFTER BIRTH". That would be a born baby person that died.
There wouldn't be a birth certificate, but there would be a death certificate for that person who died.
Your compulsions are funny but it must be really hard for you not to be able to control them.

Please seek help. You do not have to suffer untreated mental illness anymore.

BTW find me a death certificate that list a "stillborn" as a "stillborn person." You really are dumb as dirt. The dead are NOT PERSONS. That is a fact and the point, you freaking mindless twit.

"Person" is just a legal term, nit wit. In the womb it's still a human life.
Born alive and not breathing; person.
Born alive and never breathed then died; dead person.
Katie's view: Even if born alive, cord attached and not breathing = fetus.
Stupid logic that's based on: stillborns. Because a stillborn is considered a dead fetus.
Goes along with Chicky's stupid logic of "person".
PCers are such dopes.
So I see you figured out your error and then went on to try to justify your bullshit, anyway. Poor compulsive moron. Better luck next time, dummy. The dead are not persons, JUST like I said, ya gibbering buffoon.

The reason I posted the story of a woman who REGRETS being a mother was to challenge the FALSE assertion by anti-choicers that "mothers never regret having their children."
As the story by this woman clearly illustrates, that assertion is simply NOT TRUE. Women who are undecided about having children would probably find it very helpful to read this and other stories BEFORE they ever get married or get pregnant. NOT all girls/women are suited to motherhood, and if they read these stories and decide it is NOT for them, they have made the right decision. They don't need YOUR approval to make it either.
Yes Ocean, you're right, they don't need my approval.

I agreed with you about women regreting being a mother.

I do think "most " women, still have something built in them, that gives them a strong desire to be a mother.

I truly don't care if women becomes mothers, stay single, shack up with a friend, and buys a double wide trailer and fills it with rabbits and cats.

All women can do all they wish, it is their life.

They are the ones that must pay for their bad choices, and they are the ones that get to reap from their good choices.

When you want me to be ok with it being legal in my country, and you want me to be ok with the gov. Taking money out of my wallet and investing it in pp, then no.I'm not.

Women who don't wish to be a mother, need not get pregnant.
After they are pregnant, it is to late.

I agree with your use of the word BEFORE.

Women need to deside BEFORE they get pregnant, if they want to be a mother.

After is to late.

Plus they need to impliment all the things you say men should.

Double standard.

She directed you there to show you that illegal abortion does not equal a safe abortion. Which is what you claimed earlier today. That even if an illegal abortion, it'd be as safe as a legal one.
She showed you're incorrect. And you couldn't be bothered to read why. But you sure can and do jump to conclusions. How do you know if you're correctly discerning if you don't know what you're talking about?
Of course he couldn't be bothered to read. His kind will NEVER acknowledge the truth.

I also directed him there to prove he'd do exactly what he did.

Ignore the facts.

You seem to have read my post, and yet didn't interpet it correct.
I stated that if abortions were made illegal TODAY -NOW -AFTER 40 YEARS OF THEM MAKING TOOLS AND LEARNING THE EASIEST MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS OF ABORTION -that they would not have to go back to coathangers in a shady motel.
Really? And by what "logic" do you come to THAT moronic conclusion?
Illegal abortions are taken place today, the number we have only reflects those that are recorded.
Again, says who?
