Yes women may reject marriage or "their " kids at any stage in life.
Women can reject Gods love toward them at any or all time.
Women can allow what they know about God to come from misguided men or women, and blame God for what they were taught.
Most women grow up looking forward to being married and being a mother.
Are you an educated, independent woman ocean?
YES, I AM an educated, independent woman, who makes her OWN sexual and reproductive choices rather than allowing a bunch of male clerics making my choices FOR me.

A growing number of women enjoy being single and childFREE rather than being a wife and/or mother. There are women who are cheerfully done with the whole procreation thing after having ONE child by choice. There are also women who are happily FREE from the toxic baggage of gods, religions, and churches, myself included.

Bottom line; marriage and motherhood are OPTIONAL, not required. Which means a woman can reject either or both for any number of reasons. It's wonderful how much freedom a woman has when she ISN'T spiritually chained with a bunch of superstitious, faith-based BULL.

Within the law ? How convenient. Would you have said the same thing prior to 1973...and accepted the fact that women did not have the right to obtain a legal abortion ? Or would you have continued to fight for a right you thought they SHOULD have but did not currently...within the law ?
And if you really want to discuss meaningful topics and not just gloat over the fact you were right about who I called a homophobe.....then try this....
Why is it that the RvW court said in their decision that they "need not determine the difficult question of when life begins"....but then turned around and rendered a decision that did JUST that.....or at least determined the equally difficult question of when life did NOT exist during a pregnancy.
You're up.
New York, Washington, California, and a few others had legal abortion prior to Roe. How could you forget this? Gonna take lotsa work to set yourself straight there, Doc.

All people must pay for public school, even those who don't have or don't wish to have kids. My wife and I paid for years and years with no kids. If you want fairness for all women, then people should be able to opt out from paying anything to public schools. Plus I was high school supervisor,at a christian school for two years, and we ran the school on waaaay less money then public schools. Home school students would come and get all of their supplies and material, and could blow public school kids out of the water on test scores. The program we used was ACE, and many people are now going this route, instead of dropping their kids off at the zoo you call school.
Did any of this NONSENSE have a point? MY point was that YOU and the rest of the Christian extremist crowd DON'T get to force your toxic religious beliefs on public school students, not anymore anyway.

The LAST place I would go to for an education is a so-called "christian" school.

Oh PLEASE. You're just another militant religionist who is mad that you can't FORCE your toxic beliefs on public school students and on the American population in general. Too bad.

If you're so unhappy with the FREEDOM women now have in America, then move to an extremist religious country. You know, like Afghanistan or Iran, a country where women have NO freedom whatsoever. You'd probably fit right in over there.

Nice steal from wiki. Not that you understood it, of course. But you claimed to have learned a lot about AIDS from the media--and you cnnot know anything about it without knowing what t-cells are.

Elise would be a fantastic caregiver; she knows what she's doing and cares about her patients in a professional manner.

Why in the world would I know what a T cell is?
T cell/any of several lymphoytes (as a helper T cell) that differentiate in the thymus, possess highly specific cell-surface antigen receptors, and include some that control some that control the initiation or suppress of cell-mediatead and humoral immunity (as by the regulation of T and B cell maturation and proliferation) and others that lyse antigen-bearing cells - called also lymphocyte - compare B CELL (thymus-derived cell)
Maybe YOU should learn how to spell it correctly, buddy.
If Elise were a nurse, can you imagine someone like THAT taking care of you. Shudders. She's probably an orderly or something of that nature. She very insecure and is looking for credibility. Sad woman.
Was there anything else you would like to know? If you think of anything let me know. I'll be happy to look it up.

Many worship budda, which could mean they to worship a cow :)
I've heard, that Buddas first attempt at enlightnment was to not eat. I geuss we see that, that didn't work out. Lol
Your ignorance of other religions is sad.

You are wrong. I don't need to "believe" that. I know you are.

By the way, Hindus and Buddhists are not the same, Ignorant One.

Hindus do not worship cows, nor do Buddhists worship Buddha. In fact, there is no Deity in Buddhism.

Drug companies were hampered by the FDA at every turn. We worked with them to help progress along.

The bulk of the protests were based on the egregious political crap going on, from reagan on down. Do you realize reagan wouldn't even mention AIDS for nearly a year after it became an epidemic, and did not follow government protocols concerning such maladies? When he finally authorized funding for research, it was such a pittance that congressmen on both sides of the aisle volu tarily increased it. On the other hand, congress also outlawed the use of amyl nitrate, which had nothing to do with the virus, and there was talk of establishing quarantine camps for gays.

And in the meantime, thousands of us were dying.

Drug companies bent over backwards to help you people out. They did an excellent job, in a short period of time. YOU should be thankful, instead of down in the mouth.
I remember all the picketing and marching you all did. Talk about demanding!
Raygun? That was a different time. People thought differently then. That's human nature. You seem to think if you snap your fingers, you should get your own way. It doesn't work like that. Relax.

Very often when I take the time to write posts for the purpose of discussion or answering questions those posts get ignored. Most recently I wrote a detailed response to a question Gtown asked and there was no response.

As you recall, you once accused me of not answering a question you asked, I told you that I had taken the time to write an in depth answer and you didn't believe it, so I hunted down the post to show you. This happens a lot. I can only conclude that the questioner can't refute my responses so they just skip them.

No, but you're ok with FORCING christians and others to flip the bill on what public schools wish to teach.

Just becouse kids go to a christian school, does not make them a christian.
The one I worked in, had very few christian kids, many of the kids that went there were public school trouble makers.
Most of them were the way they were, becouse they had no guidance at home.

This is why our society is in the shape it is now. People buy into your freedom spill, while leaving many kids in bondage.

If women don't want kids, then they should not have sex.

Thank God, that many women doesn't share your view.

I have a friend that is 37 yo. She is very beautiful, and owns 3 finance companies. Her kids are almost grown "which she raised all by herself, and she wants to start looking for a husband before long. She's been single for years, and doesn't want to grow old and be all alone.

If all women thought like you, then the entire human race would be gone very soon. Same with gay people.

I fully understand why going to church, and things of that nature doesn't apeal to you, becouse for years I to thought it was a waste of time.

I'm just saying, if a person gets saved, then they will have a desire to go to some church, atleast some of the time.

Church is for us, to learn and grow in our faith. It is not one of many things on a to do list, that people must do, in order to obtain Heaven.

You say you want women to be free, and not forced to have kids and be married. When has any woman ever been forced to do either?

The ones that have were raped.

Just becouse you clearly have had a bad experience in life, doesn't mean others do. Marriage and motherhood can be a beautiful thing. Or women can choose to grow old and bitter, and post on topix about why others should be like them.

All I do, as an atheist, is claim there is no God? All all you fundies do is claim there is a God, while offering no proof.

I believe in freedom. That means for you too.

I don't know how to post links. I have a phone, and never have had a computer, but if you want to teach me how, then I will. If you goggle it, then you will find SOME websights, that tell how SOME hindus worship cows. Not that it matters, since the worship of anything, except God is worthless.
