If you know some women that's had five or more abortions then maybe you need some better friends and you need to quit hanging out with so many sults.
Are you trying to force your moral beliefs on me now? Ha . What's a sult?

That's one of the few good things left in America, the freedom of choice. You wouldn't want anyone to force an abortion on you just like the other side of the coin doesn't want a child forced on them.
Its simple really, if you don't like abortions then don't have one. No one should force their opinions on someone else.
Well for one , a child isn't "forced" onto anyone
(except in some cases of rape). Freedom of choice doesn't mean free to kill. If an abortion was forced on me , it would be murder also but if unborn children get rights then noone dies. It all comes down to when you decide to give a human the right to live. And who are you to say that at the first signs of life , it's ok to end that life?

If a woman doesn't want to have a baby she doesn't have to. If she has one against her will then it is forced upon them. This isn't what is right or wrong, its about weather or not you should be able to force your opinion on others. To you its murder so don't have one. To some other young girl it can be a chance to finish school and not end up on welfare.

"(except in some cases of rape)" really? WTF?

A woman isn't "forced" to have a baby if she isn't allowed to get rid of it. If she wasn't "forced" to get pregnant( by rape) then it's all the woman's doing in the first place.
I realize the other side . I was pro- choice not so long ago . What gets me is how callous some of you pro choicers can be. What about the childs rights? Should their fate be decided on by some high school kid? Do you realize how many abortions there are? I still think that each would be abortion should have a trial of some kind. Someone to fight for the child's right to live.

Its not a child yet, its an embryo. A child does have rights. If a woman doesn't want to be pregnant then its not like she's going to take care of herself. I've seen girls eat a handful of birth control pills trying to have a miscarriage. I've seen druggies not even slow down on their drug intake hoping for a miscarriage. Then the state ends up with a kid no one wants.

If anything there needs to be a lot more abortions. I think everyone needs to be on birth control and you had to fill out an application to have kids.

Many abortions are necessary and life-saving procedures. I'm glad that the law protects women from fanatics.

"A baby is not owned by a woman." Not all abortions involve "babies." Most abortions are done early in the pregnancy. The earlier, the better, for sure.

"When I was pregnant with my children I ate healthier, took vitamins and just in general took better care of myself to do my part in having a healthy baby." That really has nothing to do with the conversation.

ITs not just a religious issue. Its a moral one. You don't have to be Christian to know that abortion is wrong. A baby is not owned by a woman. I know this first- hand, I am a mother. When I was pregnant with my children I ate healthier, took vitamins and just in general took better care of myself to do my part in having a healthy baby. I knew then that I was just a vessel and nurturer and teacher to these children. They will grow up with me or without me.

"The unborn child needs a lawyer! The child grows up to be a whole separate person, not a part of the mothers body."

But very early in the pregancy, there is no "child." It hasn't developed yet.

Yes I'm sure the crosses are religious. I'm speaking of the issue of abortion in general. Christians quote scripture and pro choicers scoff and talk of a woman's body is hers . EVERYONE has a conscience. If everyone checked with theirs before killing someone , there might be less death. It's called humanity and where is it ?
And how can it be just a woman's choice? The unborn child needs a lawyer! The child grows up to be a whole separate person, not a part of the mothers body.

I was trying to show that I was aware that the human that I was pregnant with wasn't just an extension of myself. That I consciously took better care of myself for the child.

That is your opinion. An embryo is a child. If you do nothing to that embryo it will grow up Independently of the mother if need be. That spark of life needs to be protected. Mainstream media has made abortion seem ok. It's not ok.

The woman that won the rights for abortion(roe bs wade) never received an abortion and fights against abortion. She deeply regrets being the reason abortion was legalized.

So? Very early in the pregancy, you were taking care of a potential child, which is fine if that's the decision you made for yourself. You cannot make that decision for others.

It amazes me the things that pro-choicers say to convince themselves infanticide is ok. It isn't a baby it is an embryo. Ok. Whatever you have to do to feel good about looking at yourself in the mirror. The hypocrisy kills me. If a single celled organism was found on Mars everyone would be celebrating how life was found. However a baby isn't a baby for weeks. Just another way that liberals like to prove they are so open minded and enlightened.

BTW, even without abortion no one is forces to raise an unwanted baby. There are tons of couple just dying to adopt, so don't even try to use that argument.

"That is your opinion" If it's not my opinion, whose is it? Are you now going to offer your opinion or someone else's?

"An embryo is a child." So you say. I don't regard an embryo, especially at its early, microscopic stage of development, as a person. People are not microscopic. I understand why a mother would call it her "child" from the beginning, if she wants a baby, but you cannot force that decision on others.

"That spark of life needs to be protected." What "spark" and why should it be protected?

"Mainstream media has made abortion seem ok. It's not ok" Sometimes abortion is okay, sometimes it's not, hence...that's why it's sometimes legal, or not.

What if the first person who ever spoke out against slavery later changed his mind and wanted to reinstitute slavery? Should our laws be based on his whims?

"If a single celled organism was found on Mars everyone would be celebrating how life was found." We would celebrate because that would be confirmation of ALIEN life. Very poor analogy.

"However a baby isn't a baby for weeks." That is a reasonable position. At the early stages, embryos are nearly microscopic. There is almost no resemblence to a human being whatsoever, no body, no brain, no consciousness.
