that is why we as Americans must stop this insanity now.. But I think it is going to take more than a few horror stories and arresting women for wanting to exercise a right to make a choice concerning her pregnancy and reproduction.

Women do not have the right to commit murder.
Beautiful pre-born babies are being killed everyday because they are considered an inconvenience.
Where are their rights???

Murder is a legal term not applicable to an medical procedure known as an abortion.

A z/e/f has no rights as it is not a person. Personal opinions aside. That is a fact under the law.

An abortion is no one business. Certainly not a bunch of religious fanatics with nothing better to do than believing that any of them should have the right to be telling a woman what to do with either her body or pregnancy.

Roe V Wade came about because of such stupidities.

Murders tend to take place in dark places. Just because babies are being murdered in alleys, should we therefore make sure people maintain the 'right' to kill them under sanitary conditions? Evil has been blinding people with this stupid argument for too long.

There it is again, the same tired line. Makes it all seem so neat and tidy, but no matter how it's done, it's murder. You choicers need to get over yourselves. I think I can read some fear here because finally abortion is being seen for the evil that it is, and people are beginning to wake up and do something about it. You can leave religion out of it too, because all you choicers ever say is that it's the religious extremists who believe it's murder. That, is what's total bull. Stop using religion as an excuse to call it what it is.

No one has the right to commit murder. Every citizen has the right to commit self-defense.
[QUOTE who="Abortionkillshumans] "Beautiful pre-born babies are being killed everyday[/QUOTE]So are ugly ones. What are you, a 'looks-ist' or something?
[QUOTE who="Abortionkillshumans] because they are considered an inconvenience.[/QUOTE]This is your opinion. A threat to you may not constitute the same thing according to a pregnant woman,(Or, indeed, to anyone but you.) Self-defense is justified.
[QUOTE who="Abortionkillshumans] "Where are their rights???[/QUOTE]In this country, their rights are waiting for them to 'break on through to the other side'.
Born people have rights. Unborn fetii do not.

Murders take place when one person kills another illegally. Just because two lives are lost in a botched abortion, should we therefore claim to be pro-life when we encourage this? Misogyny has been blinding people with your stupid argument for too long.

Right and I do. It is called extremism that is what you little fools promote. And too often religion especially christianity is mixed in to the extremist point of view and postion.

And once your tired argument becomes law, get ready to fight for YOUR OWN life, as anyone who needs a healthy kidney will be entitled to yours.
Be careful what you wish for - you might get it.

No, I've been around long enough to know that you fools have this argument down pat, and love to call anti choicers extremists. That approach doesn't work with me. You are still wrong, and your position is due to your very own extremist point of view and position.

Another ignorant argument. You people will say anything to make abortion look right. It isn't, it's dead wrong. And I do mean dead.

Re-stating your opinion doesn't make it any more pro-life.
Face it- even god kills the unborn. In fact, god kills more of the unborn than women do. Ever heard of menstruation? How about miscarriage?(Actually, it's biology, but I figured you'd understand it better if I brought it down to a level with which you were more comfortable.)
No one, not one of us, was guaranteed live birth;
some less so than others.

All bullcrap. Choicer propaganda, and still ignorant. The insults, the indignation, all of it, crap. Wake up and smell the coffee. You are being willfully ignorant.

Aww, can't actually tackle her argument so you poo-poo it. You seem to be able to type. Counter the argument or step off. You can't without your argument being deconstructed into a perverse focus on the insides of a woman while disregarding the woman herself.
It's the height of objectification. You break a human being down to their parts, then only focus on those parts as having value, you then dehumanize original said person. We see it in advertising all the time. It's been used as the justification for the marginalization of populations for centuries.
You can't see the women for the fetuses. That's understandable, however, until ectogenesis is perfected, there is still a woman involved. Here, in this article, there is obvious persecution of women based solely on a feeling, regardless of the woman herself. I believe you have better arguments in you. Peace!

"The Return of Back-Alley Abortions"

No, they have been here all along, protected by pro"choicer's" and the government who refuse to believe that just because abortion is legal it is safe. Look at Gosnell's "clinic". It is a perfect example.
