The choice is NOT always death, that's why it is a choice. Look at China, they're aborting left and right over there. Why don't the anti-choice people take their signs and their self-righteousness and go picket over there ???
China is also extremely socialist, but hey look where we are headed with Obama running this country maybe that's where you guys want to go... Free healthcare and all Americans paying for abortion even if they're not getting one are 2 easy examples off the top of my head; it's crazy to think how far we've gone from Bush to Obama regarding the issue of abortion. Bush brought abortion numbers down and nearly 80,000 babies were gifted the "right" to take their first breaths. Obama on the other hand has an unheard of exponential statistic for his total number of abortions during his presidency so far. What does that tell you?

Nobody thinks "women should have to abort and not give life." That's your false premise. The entire entity of the PLM -- funded by your clergy first and foremost -- is built on one false premise after another.
Simply put, the option to terminate an unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy should be available in a sterile, safe environment for every single woman worldwide. That's it. I know, I know... not quite the "death" drama you were hoping for was it.
Just a point clarification.

You are terminating a child in the womb usually healthy and perfect.

Pregnancy is only a condition while carrying a child.

It tells me that people are more careless because abortion is easily available. It also tells me that kids are surrounded by sex and indulging way before they are mentally mature.

You aren't really callous enough to compare insects to children, are you?
The comparison is heartbeats, not "insects to children".

The heartbeats of insects and animals are snuffed out more often than in embryos and fetuses. But what FFJ didn't elaborate on is that those hearts in insects and animals are fully developed and working properly, unlike in embryos and fetuses.

That's your false premise, not a clarification at all.

I'll clarify again. Any termination of unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy needs to be available to all women worldwide in a legal, safe, sterile environment.

Women don't need the PLM's false premises stealing their rights to their own bodies. Women don't need the clergy, the gov't, or nosy parkers determining their pregnancies outcomes.

Abortion wasn't legal and easily available when Bush was president, Moron?

Learn to read. The other poster, whose info is incorrect anyway (abortion rates have declined steadily since 1990, so there are fewer per year now than when Bush was president), was talking about the time period since 2000.

Pregnancy is a process every woman can decide to continue or terminate. She has no obligation to gestate if she doesn`t want to.

You don't value a child's heart or life over an insect's?

Who said otherwise? We do all know that it is a fetus being terminated even if we don't use the word.

Just because you call it a pregnancy everyone knows what is being terminated, a human life. A son or daughter.

No, an abortion is the termination of the PREGNANCY whether spontaneously or induced.

Only upon live birth. That's a medical, scientific, and legal fact.

Here you go again, making the similar claim that an acorn is an oak tree, a bowl of batter is actually a cake, or an engine still in the box is really a fully loaded vehicle ready to roll off the showroom floor.

Well this morning I stepped on a whole lot of acorns. Did all those oak trees get aborted? According to your logic, they sure did.

It's clear about how much you care, when you have no problem calling the stopping of a heartbeat, as simply a medical choice.
I care that women whose actual lives are endangered by our pregnancies, should not be penalized for having toxic pregnancies by being forced to gestate them. I realize you don't.

Otherwise you wouldn't be valiantly trying to take this personal risk assessment away from all women....and if fundamentalist evangelical Christians can legally do this, how are they any different from the Taliban?

I'll tell you: They are not. Given enough rope, the Religious 'Right' will not only outlaw abortion across the board, but will institute miscarriage investigatory bodies, charging women with all sorts of lovely things, such as 'working outside the home', and 'not following the pregnancy approved diet and sexual positions'; hide and watch.

As far as I'm concerned, those who would remove the right of a woman to accept OR decline gestation, with all the risks it entails, FOR HERSELF, are terrorists, regardless of their 'religious affiliation', and I don't negotiate with those.

Draw your own conclusions, and be careful what you wish for.

Insects have children too...how do you suppose they feel about it when we destroy their kids?

We don't give it much thought, that's for certain.

How very 'pro-life' of us humans, eh?

You don't value a woman's life over the potential she carries...and that's fine. But I do, and that's just going to have to ALSO be fine.

Oh PLEASE, Knutter, this nonsense got old a long time ago. You can preach this idiocy all you want, just don't expect me -- or any other prochoice poster for that matter -- to acccept it as "fact."
As far as I'M concerned, the Catholic Church is a highly toxic religious institution that treats women as second-class citizens, and has done so ever since it opened its doors. That's one of the many reasons I got rid of the toxic baggage of Catholicism over 25 years ago. You seem royally pissed that anyone CAN kick the toxic baggage of Catholicism to the curb, but happily, that's YOUR problem, not mine.
I have seven good reasons to love being what I call Catholicism-Free (CF for short):
1. No constant and tedious preaching about "sin"
2. No long and boring church services and sermons to ruin my Sundays
3. No hassles about the weekly drag known as "confession."
4. Not having to pop out more kids than I wanted because of Catholicism's anti-contraception doctrines
5. Not having to give any of my money to the church's blood-sucking hierarchy by the church-based extortion known as "tithing."
6. No worries about my child being a victim of one of the Catholic Church's vile pedophile priests
7. Freedom to decide for MYSELF on all important personal matters like sex, marriage, and reproduction
Personally, I find it a gross obscenity that a group of male clerics in dresses has the arrogance to believe it has the "right" to rule over millions of women's lives. Luckily for me, I can and DID -- reject this toxic church before it ruined the quality of MY life. I celebrate that decision every day. For me, being Catholicism-Free (CF) ROCKS. It's wonderful how much freedom a woman has when she ISN'T mentally chained to a regressive and oppressive religious institution.
You need to find God in what church is.
There is mass all week, not only on Sundays.
A vigil on Saturdays.
Why would your child be with a Priest?
The lies about the church are blasphemy.
Nasi. The church always needs volunteers
if you have time to give instead of money.
The Priest helps people who ask him for help.

Sorry, I don't take orders from religious fanatics, whether they're Catholic or anything else.

That's another great benefit of being CF (Catholicism-FREE); I decide for MYSELF how to spend all my days, including Sundays. No one else gets to make those decisions FOR me.
