Who are "they"? I defend people's freedom to make their own decisions...and that includes you, too. You have the right to make your choices and other people have the right to make their choices...and I have the right to make my choices.
Correct!:)

Before God woke me up, in every way -I was For Abortion, not just womens right to choose, but FOR abortion.

I thought just like many pro choice folks here now do.

I thought most kids were better off anyway, and where would they all live, we have to many people in the world now, and if they will have a hard life, they are better off dead.

Yet now "since " God woke me up, I realize It is Not my call to make.

Yet I always knew they were babies being killed, before and after Jesus saved my sorry butt.

Yeah they took too long because the fetus wasn't dead at the time even tho the miscarriage was imminent and they told her that. She requested an abortion at that point but since the fetus was still alive they refused the abortion. By the time the fetus died on a Wednesday, they still had not removed the remains and the woman died of sepsis 4 days later. An autopsy showed she died of sepsis.

Premarital sex is not anything new. People were having sex before the concept of marriage occurred. I would think the main reason it was discouraged is because women were considered property. A lot of worth was placed on a womans virginity. A lot of marriages were arranged, not out of a love match, and it was done to combine different families for different reasons(bloodlines, wealth, etc). While it was ok, and even encouraged, for men to be promiscuous even after marriage, it was highly discouraged for a woman to do so. While a man was free to be sexual with as many women as he wished, there's no way he'd be ok with it for his wife and that probably has to do with ensuring that the children she bore were his.
The difference between then and now is that, for the most part, people kept their sexual activities between themselves whereas now, it's more out in the open. Because of that, I really don't think you can say folks were more "moral" back then especially when you do research, you can find that even in antiquity, people were doing some downright freaky things just like they do today.
Most people lived a moral life in the past and present. We had names for girls and guys that messed around. No one wanted to have a reputation . In reality our lives are boring compared to the books you must read. Maybe you need to have your uncle, you know the Deacon, sit you down and tell you about right from wrong and make sure he teaches your son. Many clergy have revisited the thought of the devil coming back and causing problems right before Christ comes back, many clergy think that time is now. Go find a role model for your son, maybe find a detective and seek out the kids dad and start teaching morals to him. If you need any help, seek your uncle, the Deacon or go watch Duck Dynasty and read the book that is written about the Robertson family. We need more role models like them .

We went from discussing the selfishness of women who have abortions and who refuse to give their children up for adoption to discussing how teens will have sex regardless of how their parents feel about it to how premarital sex has been going on since antiquity and now you've went off on a tangent about reading material and brought up my family, which has absolutely nothing to do with the discussion at hand.

Speaking of which, where does the assumption that I don't know where my sons father is come from? I don't speak often of him but when I do, I've made it very clear that he, and his family, are very involved in my son's life.

And you keep speaking of morality but as I said before, morality is very subjective. Your version of morality may not be someone elses version of morality and vice versa. That doesn't mean either of you are right or wrong. If the Good Lord has a problem with your morals, my morals or someone elses morals, He'll judge each and every one of us accordingly come our judgement day.

Republicans co-wrote the abortion bill. So they are just as much to blame as anyone else.

It was a question from me to Ink. I couldn't get a straight answer from her and finally asked if she were pleased the majority of abortions happen in the first trimester. Ink answered with a resounding, "No." She is not pleased these abortions happen earlier and earlier (rather than later when fetus is more developed and closer to viability).
Evening "Katie!"

My apologies--I'd thought that question was one that had originated with "Sue." Given the context in which the post I'd responded to; "Sue's" focus on the "assault on the unborn," I'd naturally thought it was something she'd asked.
Clearly I "missed" something.
My bad...:(

As far as your experiences with "Ink" go, try not to be too hard on her--she's a traditionally "conservative" Catholic, and I doubt she'd find abortion "appropriate" except in the most dire of circumstances.
She can't help it.

Unless the Good Lord came down and personally told you what His views on immorality are, you cannot speak on His behalf. You do *not* know His will nor do you know what He has in store for each and every person come their judgement day.

Especially since pro-choice doesn't think the way he "supposedly" did when he was "for" abortion. Supposedly this other woman he got pregnant was 40 years old and her mommy was going to take her for an abortion but she (the other woman)called him the night before and suddenly changed her mind and everything worked out perfectly.....for his family anyway.

Cute pagan deflection. Ok, the coronor determines the cause of death. In this case, fetal himicide to you pagans. Then the DA brings charges against the individaul responsible for the crime.

Simple, when you aren't playing the bitter pagan word games.

Abstinence works when people decide to be abstinent. Not everyone does, and no one has to. History, btw, is full of people preaching abstinence. The problem? It's completely against most peoples' nature. We have a sex drive; it's one of the strongest drives we have. Not to mention that sexual activity is healthy.
Corgi lover wrote:
<quoted text>Abstinence has worked for thousands of years. What stopped them from having sex is we actually had respect for ourselves, we knew it was wrong, we had a father and mother who taught it was wrong. This was going on in society for thousands of years. Yep, thousands of years and now all of a sudden its wrong to teach your kids morals.

No, a coroner would at best determine that death was caused by blunt-force trauma or whatever. He cannot make any determination of charges. The DA brings charges if the facts meet the legal criteria AND if he has a reasonable case.

Most people circumcize their kids due to religious or traditional reasons.

This is a reason for abstinence. Parents need to teach that pre marital sex is wrong.
Actually, Knutter, I like to say that teen sex is a BAD IDEA, and that teens, especially girls, would be wise to choose the sexFREE (free FROM sex) lifestyle.

Many teens do not realize that being sexFREE is a winning advantage. This is why I think it’s important to give teens a list of the freedoms that being sexFREE provides. The top ten winning advantages of being SF (sexFREE) are:

1. Freedom from unwanted teen pregnancy and teen motherhood.

2. Freedom from incurable STDs like Herpes and fatal STDs like AIDS.

3. Freedom to concentrate on school work and participate in school activities.

4. Freedom to get all homework assignments and studying done and maintain or improve grades.

5. Freedom to participate in learning programs for future jobs and careers.

6. Freedom to graduate with classmates and receive a high school diploma.

7. Freedom to move on to college or vocational school with no restrictions.

8. Freedom to complete a college or vocational program with a degree or certificate.

9. Freedom to look for and accept good jobs with higher salaries.

10. Freedom to get valuable job experience in a chosen career and take courses to learn more job skills.

Getting pregnant and becoming a teen mother will, most likely, take away most of these freedoms, if not all of them. A teen mom has to put the care of her baby first, which means putting her education second. If she has to study for an important test and the baby is sick, the studying may not get done because she has to care for the baby. That may result in her doing poorly on the exam instead of doing well. If a teen mom wants to attend her junior or senior prom but has no one to watch the baby for her, she can’t go to the dance and has to stay home. If a teen mom is going to college, she may fail one or more classes because caring for her baby or child took priority over completing all her course requirements. A teen mom may even have to drop out of high school or college because she could not take care of her baby and do all her school work at the same time.

By contrast, a teen girl who realizes that being sexFREE (or SF for short) in high school and college is a clear winning advantage will avoid sex with partners during those years. She will keep her freedom to enjoy all the advantages that the SF choice offers. She is free to concentrate in school, get all her class and homework assignments done, attend any dances she wishes, and take part in school activities like working on the school newspaper or yearbook. Best of all, she will graduate with her class and go on to college or vocational school afterward. If she avoids sexual activity with partners during her college or vocational school years, she will continue to enjoy the advantages indefinitely. She may even decide at some point that she prefers the career world over marriage and children, which is a perfectly valid choice. Not all women wish to be wives and mothers.
