Why would a woman think that she has a right to kill her child when she or he is growing? Child still grows outside the womb. Why stop there? If the child is unwanted,then mom might decide after birth,..does she then have a right to kill the child? adoption works and if a pregnant mom is too selfish to give that growing child up,then why should a mom who decides after birth. Why is she discriminated against (in your fairy tale land of I can justify killing another humans life because I don't want them)?

Respect all human life,especially your own flesh and blood lineage. I have fostered children and adopted three and I would protect them with my life and we are not even blood related. My love makes them as 'bonded' as if they are. A woman discussing killing as choice or doing it,is the lowest a person can go. It's unnatural. Something is not right in their heads. Women have sought help when they come to terms with the atrocity that they committed. It's a long healing process. I wish them recovery. I've seen the agony some have suffered. Please stop this from happening and let's respect women enough to be honest with the truth of abortion and the silent pain they truly suffer. Men as well who sleep around and have no control over their child bring pit to death. Oh God what a tragedy!

Of course not, because it challenges your line of 'thinking'...if that's what you want to call it.

It's obvious that we are the only species with the ability AND the inclination to befoul our planet beyond supporting life...which is why we decided to invest trillions in exploring space. Pretty soon, this planet won't be fit to live on.

Name any other species that willfully destroys its own environment.

Abortion is as old, and as natural, as pregnancy.

Don't like it? Don't have one.

Jesus frigging christ, bernice, take a valium.

Women think they have the right to abort because they DO have that right. You don`t have a say in THEIR decisions.

Your line of thinking is stupid. Only man has the intelligence and choice on how to use the resources God gave us. We probably will destroy ourselves eventually by making bad choices.
Because we can doesn't always mean we should. Being given dominion over everything brings with it a responsibility to be good stewards.

Deliberately killing a humans life because YOU don't want your developing son or daughter,is not normal. You are correct tho that killing is old. Murder,rape,abuse,etc...is not new. Irrelevant to the discussion tho.

But friggin aye,..don't want to rape,murder,abuse,etc,...don't ,right? How immature ,unsophisticated and disrespectful of you to make excuses for bad behavior that harms or kills another in order to ease your little arrogant mind

Supreme Court gave her the right.

She is not killing a baby if the abortion is done in the first five weeks. Whether you like it or not, she is merely having a very small mass of cells removed.

They're a perfect metaphor for religion...a central authority that no one questions, populated by mindless slaves, and only the leaders have sex. Why wouldn`t they support it?

I never said they were superior; pretending one species is better than another is ridiculous. You're the one saying man is the most advanced species.

BTW--many species CAN deliberately abort.

What they and Solomon found remarkable was that there was no leader or central authority. I would think that only the queen having sex would appeal to you.

As I said you can believe that if it makes you happy. Animals do not deliberately abort. That would be next to impossible to document since you can't read the mind or ask the animal.

Utter hog twaddle. Every single other species, has the intelligence to use the resources available, without destroying the environment. And I suppose you don't think a sheep exercises choice between mullein and clover, if both are in the same field. Animals have likes, and dislikes, same as you.

Of course they do.

The trend of aborting babies in the face of strange males is known as the Bruce effect. That’s not a slight against men of that name; the effect is named after the scientist who discovered it – Hilda Margaret Bruce. In 1959, she noticed that pregnant mice will abort if they’re exposed to unfamiliar males. Since then, scientists have found the same effect among other laboratory rodents, and domestic horses. But the Bruce effect has always remained a quirk of captivity. No one really knew if wild animals do the same thing.

A new study found that geladas, a relative of the baboon, do have abortions in the wild:

Normally, the failure rate for gelada pregnancies is around 2 per cent. If a new male arrives, it shoots up to 80 per cent.… But why would a pregnant female abort her own foetus? Roberts thinks that it’s an adaptive tactic in the face of a new male’s murderous tendencies. Since the male would probably kill the newborn baby anyway, it’s less costly for the female to abort than to waste time and energy on bringing a doomed infant to term. Her future offspring, conceived more quickly and fathered by the incumbent king of the hill, will stand a better chance of survival.

Is Abortion Natural?

All signs point to yes; aborting a pregnancy is a natural response in female mammals.

Ludek Bartos from the Institute of Animal Science in the Czech Republic recently led a study that suggests that female horses have adopted abortion strategies and that they can choose to terminate a pregnancy if they are put in a position where the foals paternity may be uncertain. Published in the journal Behavioural Ecology and Sociobiology, this study has caused many anti-choicers to exclaim that the creators of this study are simply assuming the horses intentions. They argue that the phenomena should be referred to as “miscarriage” instead of “abortion.” Some have even proclaimed that it’s impossible for animals to choose to terminate pregnancies, because they don’t have the medical technology to perform surgical abortions.

What these critics fail to acknowledge is that abortion does not have to be performed surgically. In animals, hippos, armadillos and rabbits have all been known to suddenly miscarry when their environmental conditions are unfavorable, or because they are such that giving birth would potentially kill them. The reason that scientists choose to call this a self-induced abortion instead of a miscarriage is because the pregnancies are typically lost before the mother animal begins to feel negative effects from the strain of carrying a pregnancy in a hostile environment.

BAM.
