Considering the number of sex acts performed daily, it's perectly within the known stats that bc will fail that often--which is still a tiny number of ll sex acts using bc. On te other hand, since women don't have to provide reason to abort, and you don't list what bc methods--including NFP--are used, it's kind of meaningless.

FTR,you are being dishonest. There is much success with NFP. Are you aware that over half of abortions done,are done on women who used b/c?
Doesn't sound too effective to me.

Not even legally, is the fetus a person and Lynne D's continuous vain repetitions of what one law says, doesn't make it so, but for the sole purpose of that law. And that law has a clear an unambiguous exception for a woman's right to kill it and get it the hell out of her uterus, if that's what she wants to do.
That argument hols as much water as the Titanic did. And we know what happened to it.
There was only one point being made and that is that the court considers an unborn baby, a child. A human child.

<quoted text>Just wondering if you've done research on those who were former employees of PP? I bet that you're not interested in what they have to say about what REALLY goes on behind closed doors. After all, these are the abortionist,and staff who performed these thousands of abortions?
You don't care?
Okay. What about the abortionist and staff who STILL are practicing? Are you interested in their stories about the truths behind closed doors?(of course I am referring to those who have revealed much truth because they didn't care). Go google their stories. You just might be surprised. My former MIL worked at PP. She told us the truths. Just so you know,she is still a proabort(that I know of).
You think all these people just changed their minds and became PL? It hasn't occurred to you they were sell outs, being paid to saying something? That they had no qualms pandering for the bigger paycheck?

Why don't you start using real language in this "debate"? Until we can agree on the words and definitions, this will not progress. There is no "abortionist" because the physician is called an obstetrician.

There are no "proaborts" because those who think women should decide for themselves whether to keep or terminate their pregnancies are called prochoice.

There is no "abortuary". Abortion means an end to pregnancy prior to term. The pregnant woman will decide what happens to the fetal remains following induced or spontaneous abortion. Perhaps a mortuary is involved or the remains are donated to science or the remains become medical waste. It's up to the woman what to do with these.

I posted that law because Kathynn the Dummy claimed Connor was born when he died. Another PCer went along with him in that. I proved them wrong by showing that law. That law was proving Connor was NOT BORN when he was killed.
That law doesn't prove SHIT about whether Connor was born or not when they were killed.

In fact, the autopsy reports stated they could NOT say if he'd been born or not.

The law was in response to the crime and other crimes like it you moron, NOT to whether or not he was murdered before OR after he was born.

Believe it or not, I actually agree that teens, especially girls, since they have to cope with the burdens of teen pregnancy, would better off avoiding sex entirely until they have, at the very least, graduated from high school.
I wrote this a few months ago, as a kind of "public service" post:
**********
This might help girls see the difference between the two lifestyles of being a free teenager and being a teen mom BEFORE they make the mistake of having sex and possibly ending up pregnant.
If you or anyone can think of more benefits of lifestyle #1 or negatives of lifestyle #2, please go ahead and add them.
LIFESTYLE #1 - LIFE AS A FREE TEENAGER:
- Keeping up grades, studying, doing homework
- Participating in after-school activities
- Going to school dances and parties
- Relaxing during summer vacation
- Having fun at the junior or senior prom
- Graduating high school and attending after-graduation parties
- Attending college or vocational training after high school with no restrictions
LIFSTYLE #2 - LIFE AS A TEEN MOM:
- Missing school, falling behind in classes
- Getting up two or three times at night to feed a baby
- Endless diaper changes, including stinky ones
- Losing friends who don't want to be around crying babies
- Staying home with a crying baby while friends are out having fun
- Missing high school graduation, or even having to drop out of school
- Settling for part-time, low-income or minimum-wage employment instead of a dream job/career
As a teenager who is happily NOT pregnant, which lifestyle do YOU want? Wouldn't you rather have the first lifestyle instead of the second?
You can keep Lifestyle #1 very easily, just by staying sexfree (meaning free FROM sex) and saying NO to any guy who pressures you to have sex. If your boyfriend says he'll break up with you if you won't have sex with him, don't cave in. Break up with HIM instead.
Keeping your freedom to BE a teenager; there's no better reason to say NO.
FINALLY, someone who has some common sense. While I disagree with your veiws on abortion, I like your post and I hope that in the future, teens will respect each other, and that they won't fall into peer pressure to have sex too early.

It's an unknown regarding Conner, Ink. Prior to this, most ZEFs were unrecognized by the courts and so was the woman's and/or family's loss.

The Victims of Violence Act or Conner's Law can be seen as a legal compromise. I know the PLM thinks of it as a weapon, but it's not meant to be.

PC see it more as further protecting women's civil rights to determine the outcome of her pregnancy. And now a wanted pregnancy ruined by a 3rd party is recognized in those states who've passed this.

Bullshit. The Victims of Violence Act of 2004 does not trump Roe v. Wade. Roe v. Wade does not make such reference to life in uteri. BTW, it's in uteri, not in utero you dumb shit. Learn proper Latin medical terms. Did they not teach you that in "Honorary Medical School?"
Roe v. Wade protects a woman's right to abort. The Act protects a woman's right to carry to term by embellishing on a technicality, the purpose of which is mainly to give your kind a $.10 lolly pop, while Roe v. Wade gives our kind Key Lime Pie.
Go on and prove me wrong.
HA! So you're saying that just a "choice" can all of a sudden redefine a fetus as human or inhuman? In fact, Planned Paranthood was against this act when it was signed because they knew that this act would hurt the pro-choice argument and that the fetus shouldn't be counted as murder because the law clearly states that a pregnant woman killed with her unborn child would be considered a double-homicide. Do you suppoert this act? Because if you do, you're saying that a fetus should be counted as a human (double homicide means two PEOPLE getting killed). If the fetus WAS part of the woman before birth, it would be considered one casualty instead of two.

You're SO full of shit Skankdawg. The FACT is that many women that lose a pregnancy, whether its naturally or by abortion, simply move on with their lives, and do NOT regret it.
My mom and I had a discussion once about her miscarriage. She told me that knowing what they know now about HER illness,(that the medical community didn't know back then), she was actually THANKFUL that she miscarried - because between the MS and diabetes, and knowing what they also knew about my father's genetic heart conditions in the men in the family - she would NEVER have wished those kinds of health issues onto her child.
Conversely, I know women - some of whom have posted here - who have ALSO said they're not only not sorry they had an abortion, they are THANKFUL they did.
For whatever reason, you have this really sick NEED to inflict YOUR f'd up vision & desire for regret, spiritual misery, shame, depression and more on others.
FORTUNATELY, MOST women dont and wont suffer any such things from having an abortion.
Only a complete idiot like you will hear women tell you THEY DO NOT REGRET their decisions, and ignore that, only to be so insistant on trying to put YOUR words in THEIR mouths.
Ask them the same question in the future, when they are on their deathbed, and I bet you'll get a different answer from them.

REALLY, and which Planned Parenthood facility did that? I doubt that your little story is true.
Personally, I went to Planned Parenthood quite often when I was 18+ and had just moved to a big city after graduating high school and vocational school. I knew that if I chose to have sex at some point, I DIDN'T want to get pregnant, so I needed reliable contraception to PREVENT that unwanted outcome. They charged very LITTLE money for that contraception, and I was very grateful to get it. I would have had to pay MORE anywhere else.
The Planned Parenthood facility I went to was terrific. The medical staff were very knowledgable and helpful, they answered all my questions on preventing unwanted pregnancy and STD's, and finally set me up with the contraception that I felt would work best for me. Thanks to Planned Parenthood and its wonderful staff, I never got pregnant before the time when I WANTED to become a mother, which wasn't until my 30's. I never got a sexually transmitted disease either. I went OFF birth control when I decided I was ready for the responsibility.
I strongly suggest that teens avoid all types of sexual activity with partners while in middle or high school because even WITH the use of birth control and condoms, unwanted pregnancy is still a possibility. Must protection always be used if for any reason a teen girl or guy decides to have sex? ABSOLUTELY, and EVERY time too. Is that protection a GUARANTEE a girl will never get pregnant? Absolutely NOT. All birth control methods can and do fail occasionally. When BC fails and a pregnancy results, it is still the girl's/woman's decision whether to continue it or not.
With all your tricks dropping yo off, I am sure you were on a first name basis with the staff. "Yank out the condoms, she's back!!"

There's only one truth for me concerning abortion:

A fetus is alive before an abortion and it is dead after an abortion.

Abortion destroys life, and this is what makes it wrong and worth fighting against.

Oh PLEASE. Do you really expect me to believe such nonsense? If you do, get used to disappointment, junior.
There's an old joke that goes like this:
Q. What do you call a couple that relies ONLY on "natural family planning" as their primary form of birth control?
A. PARENTS.
That is why the Catholic Church approves of it while FORBIDDING all other forms of birth control that are far more reliable in preventing unwanted pregnancy. The church doesn't WANT married couples to prevent pregnancy indefinitely, or to take the step of voluntary sterilization. The church wants married couples to start the procreation process sooner or later, and preferably sooner.
Such backward beliefs concerning sex and reproduction is one of the many reasons I kicked the toxic baggage of Catholicism to the curb over 20 years ago. I haven't regretted that decision for a New York minute. I make my OWN decisions in those highly personal matters, rather than allowing a bunch of male clerics in dresses to make those choices for me.
OK, like I said I have nothing against contraception, abortion isn't contraception. I was just telling someone that there IS a way to have sex in marriage but not have kids and not use artificial birth control. If you want to do it your way, that's your buisness. BUT don't use what I just said as a privacy argument for abortion because contraception is different from abortion. Abortion is much different because you're dealing with something that has it's own DNA and heartbeat. While I personally wouldn't use artificial birth control myself, it's a medicine that I don't mind because it doesn't hurt the unborn.

Wow, you are full of your own filth. Funny thing, I know women who have type one diabetes and have children, and are very sad when they miscarry, my mom miscarried and felt the sadness way into her later years. I would say you cannot speak for women because you refused to be a wife and mother by your choice. Yeah, God gave you free will, you chose wrong, you chose evil. You will be accounted for your choice when you meet Christ face to face. AND YOU WILL. Many women do suffer from an abortion, many have regretted it and spent years in therapy, Martin Luther King Jrs neice and others have gone through years of pain. You can see it in tv stars when they are desperate to have children but admit they have had to
en or more abortions and because of that they can't. You cannot speak for God when your views are so demonic.
