I am over a decade older. Gave birth to 2 children one as a teen..before Roe was law. So I have been around . I will try to cut down on the rhetoric. But I do feel all of this loss of life has caused a disconnect and divided this country horribly.
As for my kindle ..I love it for many things..buf postjng is Not one of them.for sure
Rose, abortion has not divided this country. There are only a few who think it should be stopped. The vast majority of people do NOT want legal abortion stopped. MOST people realize that women have ALWAYS had abortions. They also know they WILL always have abortions. You then have the option of safe abortions in clean clinics where no women die OR unskilled butchers that prey on desperate women where women die.

Which do YOU choose??

As I said earlier, abortion has been legal in this country for longer than it was ever illegal, and was legal when this country was founded. In other words, legal abortion is not just something that has occurred since Roe v Wade.
Nearly two-thirds of the country believes that Roe v Wade should be upheld, and that would include many who consider themselves pro-life. I know many pro-life people who don't think their own beliefs should govern others in this matter.
The actual numbers I find to be irrelevant, as to me it's a question of one woman making a decision for one pregnancy, her own. That pregnancy is none of my business.
Yeah at least the computers auto correct is better. Tried turning this one off..it got worse. I think the keys vary from too sensitive to not enough or something. It is an older one:(. But hey maybe I win the lotto and get an ipad.

Took a bad fall couple of years ago so no more sitting in front of the computer..for long periods..but as long as you all are patient with me I will keep trying to correct myself on this thing. It is a great device for reading :) and some other things for the money..
Was a great gift so cant complain too much

And forget the phone lolol. I need it for the little work I have. But using the input say for net addresses lolol. Plus who can read this stuff on the screen.
Hard to read on this . Oh there is another thing to add to the list that goes and I am well corected. Eyes

i dont know on the figures regarding those who want Roe but many more tgan previously want restrictions such as parental nogification and to stop LTA as an elective procedure. Iam not talking about emergencies in a hospital done to try and SAVE the lives involved.where one or both die but electives done at sbortion clinics
So maybe there is some hope.
Rose, LTA has never been classified as an "elective procedure," and since RvW, has not LEGALLY ben done for any reason other than saving the life of the mother, removal of a dead fetus, or terminating a fetus diagnosed with severe / profound anomalies or terminal illness.

I realize you don't agree that a fetus with such anomalies or conditions, should be terminated, and probably believe that women shouldn't have the choice to do so...but I for one am glad that women who know they would resent or otherwise fail these little ones, are able to abort, rather than abuse them. Because they are HIGHLY unlikely to be adopted by anyone else, and/or have any kind of meaningful lives.

And again - the fact that we DO have a choice, means that women who ARE strong enough to accept these babies and love them, aren't coerced into putting them into the 'care' of institutions, at the behest of their doctors, family, or government. That happened A LOT, back in the 'good ol' days'. Nowadays, most of those private institutions have been closed, due to the practices prevalent in their 'care', and the ones run by the States have been defunded.

The method of scientific analysis of DNA used in criminal law is the exactly the same method of scientific analysis of DNA used for proving that human and chimps share a common ancestor. You can't have it both ways. Either chimps and humans have a common ancestor or every criminal conviction based on DNA needs to be overturned. As I said before, you are fine with scientific conclusions when they appeal to you personally and you reject them if you don't like them. That is the height of hypocrisy and dishonesty.

Your reading comprehension is not much better than hers, either. Read my original post again. You've responded to it. TWICE now.

And again, I never once said "...abortion being good for the birth rate..." That was *your* misinterpretation of the imbalance I've been discussing long before you poked your SN back in this forum.

I believe you owe me an apology or two... but I'm not demanding it of you.

Until the same bacteria become peniciilin resistant. Faith is faith because it is taken by faith..through grace given by God..and of course it is supernatural.
It is spiritual.
Man has always been man. That we share some similar traits may be so but only man has a soul.

There is no missing link
i know you do not believe as I do. At one time I thought reincarnation was a possibility. Now I know better. God created me. His Son died a horrid death specifically became a perfect sacrifice for my sins. It is thru grace I accepted this wonderful gift of life.

You either believe or you do not maybe someday you will. It is free. Peace

Obviously I disagree that there is a disconnect. I think there is acknowledgement that this is a personal, private matter.

The fact that nearly two-thirds think RvW should be upheld means that there is no consensus regarding restrictions. People are not all of one mind, do not all want the same restrictions, or the same level of restrictions. There are people who call themsleves pro-life who want the very same level of restriction as some who call themselves pro-choice. The entire country runs the gamut on this issue, no matter how they label themselves. By the way, those figures are split right down the middle between PL and PC, as it's been for quite some time. It varies little from year to year. It is not as cut and dry as you made it sound in your post.

Agree with a lot of what you say. And dead babies should ALWAYS be delivered induced or whatever.. to perform emergency deliveries when the mother is at risk for her life would I think happen in a hospital..not a clinic..and yes of course the baby or mom may not survive..
as far as anomalies in the child..no I think many may die such as anencephalucs right after birth. I do not think heroic measures should bd used to prolong their lives.. but I also believe in care and comfort for then such as cpter described for his poor little sister. So we can agree on. some things

But some women just wait to long and go to clinics like Gosnels or like the case here in So fla where the doc was absent..the woman got sticks in her to abort and when the baby came out ALIVE an admjnistrator threw it in the garbage. Sadly by that point when the mom saw it come out..she wanted it..but the administrator knew better.

Anyway this is the kind of thing that can happen with LTA. Even in those cases where you think its ok because of abnotmalities and I dont..why wait so long?? And I even hate saying it. If the law estsblishes a time limit ..why not make it stick..barring anythjng life threatening. This would at least get rid of some of the more unsavory practices for late terms..AND preclude live births being a subject for CHOICE. That is a slippery slope of progression.. in the womb vs out.

And I know the PC side likes to pjnpojnt the moment a baby can feel pain kn the womb....I do not agree..but what if they are one day off or 5 or 10 .etc..why even take a chance on torturing a chikd fetus whatever in the womb..Why so late for any reason other than emergency.
Personslly I think all babies inside feel to kne extent or anothet but I am
trying to use your pc arguments ti make a point

Maybe I am wrong on this but wasnt Roe which is brought up as the standard supposdd to be first trimester.

1) Why do you think that the complaints against Gosnell would find their way to the governor"s dest?
2) Ridge stopped the inspections for political reasons:
"But at least the department had been doing something up to that point, however
ineffectual. After 1993, even that pro forma effort came to an end. Not because of
administrative ennui, although there had been plenty. Instead, the Pennsylvania
Department of Health abruptly decided, for political reasons, to stop inspecting abortion
clinics at all. The politics in question were not anti-abortion, but pro. With the change of
administration from Governor Casey to Governor Ridge, officials concluded that
inspections would be “putting a barrier up to women” seeking abortions. Better to leave
clinics to do as they pleased, even though, as Gosnell proved, that meant both women and babies would pay."
http://www.phila.gov/districtattorney/PDFs/Gr...
1. Because if the Governor had no role in then he could not stop inspections or do inspections in the first place?@@
2. And under Casey's term inspections were done and complaints ignored. They are both culpable.
The inspector from the NAF is morally culpable but the NAF is not run by the government, they don't get funds from the government, and they are not legally required to report to the government.

There is no evidence for a soul. Never has been. Nor could you know, if there was such a thing, that other animals didn't possess them.

There may be one in your brain...... But you are correct, there is no missing link in the fossil or DNA record; that claim that there is one is what the creationists usually claim.

No you don't. You can't "know" any of the things you claim. You simply believe without evidence.

If you're not SassyJM playing with SNs, then you're really good at misdirection. You've been misreading/misinterpreting my posts since earlier in the week when you first came back to see how the war in here was faring. You even posted to SassyJM (she's going by Sassylicious these days) your first day back.

Don't get me wrong, Rose, I remember you from before. Am just getting a little prickled that you've misunderstood what I've posted a few times already in the same amount of days. I understand keeping up with various conversations can be taxing for anyone, so I'm trying to cut you some slack. It is bothersome that you also seem to prickle when I'm trying to steer you straight regarding what I said.

Anyway, I hope clarifying helps you out some. Earlier in your posting, you used a phrased SassyJM uses often. She uses the word YES as emphasis when she's trying to make a point. You did the same. You made a point, then said YES, then remade the point. So when I said, "you guys, yes you guys seem to write similarly" that's what I was referring to.

You may or not be SassyJM under a different SN. It doesn't matter. That you don't have a problem with contraceptive use is polar opposite of JM anyway. However, that doesn't erase my opinion that the two of you seem to have the same issues regarding the same issues and gives you a lot in common. Maybe when she pops in again, the two of you get better acquainted.
