56 Million murders (abortions for more orgasms) for convenience and counting... It's getting so you can't walk down the street and know which lying, self-centered, lascivious female has innocent blood on her hands. No wonder the dumbed down female dominated juries are letting post partem child murderers walk free in the streets.

I was speaking of legal rights. Those stats sound more like women aren't accessing the rights they do have, especially in terms of voting.

^^typical pro-abort males response^^

You like to ignore the fact that abortion not only kills the humans life in the womb,but also, causes MUCH physical,emotional,and mental damage to the woman/girl.

Are you aware that the HUGE abortion business is a deceptive one?

Can you say $$$$$ CHAA CHING $$$$$$

Go do your homework buddy ole pal,and THEN get back to us.

Women are not "just fine" after their abortions.

Despite PLM propaganda to the contrary, the majority of women do NOT have problems after an abortion. Nor do you acknowledge that giving birth can ALSO cause women problems. We do not take peoples' choices away because they might regret them later on.

The REAL money, btw, is in delivering kids, not abortion.

I've done the homework; I just didn't restrict myself to PLM sites. You clearly don't give a damn about women; you worship the fetuses and the women who gestate them are just conveniences.

Sure it does. There are actually men and women who think they know better than a pregnant woman what her decisions should be. And that is inexcusably vile.

""""" the majority of women do NOT have problems after an abortion""" """"

false claim. You are so clueless,it's not even funny. Not only that,but I find you VERY insulting towards women/girls who SUFFER because of the quick choices that they've made.

Most women/girls going into abortion clinics,coming into CPC's or sharing their past abortion experiences, CLAIM that they felt pressured or forced to abort (examples of some: bf left them,abandoned by family/friends,risk of being thrown out of their home if parents found out that they were pregnant, no money to care for baby,forced with the threat of violence if they didn't abort,etc..)

MANY have physical issues with future pregnancies BECAUSE of their previous abortion(s).

MANY suffer the emotional consequences of their actions for YEARS after their abortions...dsyfunctional behavior,eating disorders,anger issues,depression,suicide thoughts, failed relationships, disconnect/bonding issues with their future children,etc...

""""" """"You clearly don't give a damn about women"""" """"" """"

My family and I have been VERY active in crisis pregnancy centers for years in many different locations. Funny thing is,I've never seen you OR any other proabort there helping women have ANOTHER choice when they are alone and mostly feel FORCED to abort because they didn't know that other options were available during their vulnerable time.

Again, many girls and women FEEL forced or pressured to abort. It GOES against their better judgement. They NEED love and help,not your free advice to the nearest abortion clinic.

They won't because they want her to abort. They have no solutions, just rhetoric.

Never midn letting a woman make a free choice between herself and her medical doctor.

If we want to outlaw abortions - then lets also outlaw open heart bypass surgury for fat white christian republicans.

Leading(with lies) a young girl,who is alone,scared and vulnerable to an abortion clinic to kill her baby is free choice?

There are no 'pro-aborts', so there can be no answer from them.

I and other PCers have told you many times how we help.

I volunteer with an organization that offers goods and services to pregnant and mothering teens.

Half of my practice involves pregnant and laboring women.

I give time and money to charities that help women and their children.

I've taken in a scared pregnant teen whose own crackhead mother had abandoned her, and whose father didn't care. She's now married with two children, and is pregnant again.

Other PCers have also answered your question. Why do you keep asking it?

"Many"? How many are "many"?

There are around million abortions each year, but we don't have a million depressed women afterward. We don't even have a half-million depressed women afterward. In fact you can't prove how many women have problems afterwards. You also can't correlate abortion with eating disorders and other problems, mostly because these things tend to be present BEFORE they even get pregnant. Some women get abortions BECAUSE they are afraid pregnancy will make them fat.

I am all for therapeutic intervention when women--or men--have depression or other concerns. But pretending that removing abortion from a woman's rights will lower the incidents of mental disorders is ridiculous. CPC's don't encourage therapy; they prefer the women wallow in their depression as punishment.

Woen FEEL forced to have sex, to have kids, to do a helluva lot of things. So do men. That is when you have to "just say no." But if you don't say no (and aren't physically forced), you don't get to complain about it afterwards. Part of being an adult is making choices and living with them.

They need the facts, not your CPC pie-in-the-sky lies and welfare applications.
