The kind of thinking that says a child is better off in heaven, then brought into this evil world to be used and abused. What kind of thinking is it to say an abused child will probably end up being a "great person"?
Well the child at least has a chance to grow up if not aborted. Don't believe in heaven so...I guess my kind of thinking is "common sense" . You might want to get you some, pickins are slim.

There's an article in today's paper about how the bank has partnered with the Aim Pregnancy Center, a Christian centric organization in Somerset, to bring abortion awareness to the community. Consequently, I got on their web site to see what they are all about. I was impressed with the resources they offer those who are expecting, yet was very disappointed there was no mention of birth control or pregnancy prevention. If we did a better job in this area, abortion would be far less frequent and in most cases unnecessary. Sadly, many of these faith based pro-life organizations also oppose any birth control other than abstinence. Personally I believe that abortion advocates would gain far more traction if they would only accept the fact that sex is a normal part of life and that we need to encourage and help those who are sexually active to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

That said, if I were a customer of the bank in question (which I'm not) I would close my account immediately. There is too much politicizing in this country already. I want my bank to take care of my banking needs, not lecture me on religion or any other personal issue.

Here's my thought : if you aren't ready for a baby, there's a place called a clinic, they sell pills called birth control. Also, they make rubber balloon like things for men called condoms. Ahem, both forms fail. However if this happens, or you are raped there's another pill called morning after (72 hour pill). Not an abortion pill, if conception has already happened it does nothing, if you take it in time it prevents pregnancy. If you can't manage any of this, well ur an idiot.

It is just a feel good thing.
Worse, I think it's a ploy by the bank to drum up business. They think that if customers think the bank is caring, then the customers might not read the terms on loans.

Wrong, it prevents implantation, not conception, and if implantation has already happened can cause birth defects. That's why in the early 80's the FDA made them stop using the term Oral Contraceptives and made them change the name to Birth Control Pills. The old high dose pills were actually contraceptives because they prevented ovulation but they were taken off the market due to the high risk of cancers and clots.

Oh, you must have looked at all the photos at the microscopic stage?

I've seen alot of photographs of abortions. Larry Flynt sent an abortion pamphlet to our house that I got a good look at before my mother snatched it away. What I do not understand about the debate is the arguement that it's not a baby. Take some time to look at actual photos and then decide. They stopped allowing photos to be used in congressional debates. The pictures tell the whole story and it's a story that abortion supporters do not want to be told.

Plan B is
A backup plan that helps prevent pregnancy from happening after unprotected sex or birth control failure .

Plan B is not

It's not RU-486 (the abortion pill)It won't work if you're already pregnantIt shouldn't affect or terminate an existing pregnancy.
Look it up

No, they weren't micoscopic. They looked pretty big in the pictures. I don't think I was even ten when those Flynt pamphlets came out. I didn't even know what abortion was. I remember almost being sick when my mom explained that some women have their babies killed before they are born. She was really mad that I had seen them.
But, everyone knows that they do not allow any abortion photos in congressional debates any more. They haven't for a long time now. I don't think it's because they are afraid of a picture that looks like a glob of tissue, it's because they look like dead babies. It's easier to face your atrocities if you don't have to see the results of your actions. It's the difference in a bomber pilot and an infantryman. Two very different combat experiences.

Kellerman- being gay does not kill innocent lives as far as I know. Abortion does. As I stated before, I'm not religious .. But I am human and have a conscience.
I'm well aware of this but if they are attempting to advertise their position on abortion than what next. A good business would never advertise their personal belief system. Abortion is a decision for women to make and regardless of what your personal opinion is. Abortions have been around since I was a child and that's been a long time. They usually were done in secret in back alleys and many women died from the procedure. Isn't it safer to have them legal than obtaining other means. I know this subject is a tough one due to so many religious persons.

"No, they weren't micoscopic. They looked pretty big in the pictures." The point is that the early stages of pregnancy ARE nearly microscopic and a lot of those propaganda photos are taken under magnification.

"I remember almost being sick when my mom explained that some women have their babies killed before they are born." Not all abortions involve "babies." I think that it's absurd to call an embryo a "baby" at it's early stages. That's why the law protects women. It's a decision that they must make for themselves.

I wonder how many on this thread are actually PRO-life or just anti-abortion?? true Christians and true PRO-Lifers would also fight Death Penalty because according to Jesus both are wrong! well actually I only know him to have fought Death Penalty but I'm sure he is against both. and I am a true Pro-Lifer I think life is precious from Womb to Tomb because I actually believe in Christ I don't just like to make a scene in town by marching and yelling telling people they are evil

I've never met anyone who can sufficiently define that. That's why it's a difficult issue. However, to make an extreme example, I don't think that two cells is a baby.

In response to John doe:
I only am concerned with truly innocent lives. Anti- theist is so worried about women being protected by law , to have abortions. Also Anti-theist ( along with a lot of other people) claims that a clump of cells isn't a baby. Close hanger , back alley abortions from before roe vs wade is another argument used. I really am not interested in changing the laws. Yes there are situations where abortion could be a choice...BUT I want to make people think again. Just because the media says it's ok doesn't mean that it is. The politically correct opinion is not always the more intelligent one. If more people thought for themselves and lived by their conscience , maybe more babies would make it past being "just a clump of cells" . Women need to really be aware of what abortion does. There needs to be another option that REALLY takes the woman's body, life AND conscience into consideration. An option that includes the child's right to live!

"Yes there are situations where abortion could be a choice..." No, abortion IS a choice. Abortion is legal. Didn't you just claim that you're not interested in changing the law?

"Women need to really be aware of what abortion does." It ends a pregnancy. They're already aware of that.
