Late term abortions are against the LAW! With the exception of the mothers life, health and fetal deformity. SO WHO exactly is arguing in favor of late term abortions just because?????? You right wingers are fricking nuts and create drama that does not exist.
I suggest you read RvW and take a chill pill.
Read the Gosnell trail and see how that guy f*cked up your cause!

WRONG, moron, I get it just fine. It's YOU and other anti-choice imbeciles who don't get it. By "it" I mean that even though it does take two people to create a pregnancy, it is still the WOMAN'S decision whether or not to continue it.
What you're pissed about is that I (and other prochoicers) continue to disagree with your idiotic implication that since you are the sperm donor, you somehow get to make the choice FOR the woman. Too bad. Yes, the guy contributes the sperm, and NO, he doesn't get to make the choice between gestation and abortion. Again, it's the WOMAN'S decision, not yours.
Motherhood: OPTIONAL, not required.
Look back at my postings, I tell you exactly what I think about abortion.

FOR THE LAST TIME LEARN TO REPRODUCE ON YOUR OWN THEN MEN WILL SHUT UP!

Now we have states that are passing more strict abortion laws because of Gosnell. But what is the narrative on the news, states passing the most restrictive abortion laws BUT THEY DON'T TELL YOU WHY! GOSNELL is the reason why? Where was the news coverage during that trial? It didn't fit the liberal medias abortion agenda, so it was left out!

A) I am not a woman.
B) Should she decide to terminate a pregnancy, that decision is between her and her doctor.
C) Only a fool would think a third party who will not be carrying the child has a right to input.

Sorry idiot, the law will not be changing to allow a man to force a woman to carry to term. If you believe it will, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.

I've read your idiotic posts concerning abortion, moron. They don't change anything.

For the last time, sperm donors DON'T make the decision whether or not to continue a pregnancy. That is the WOMAN'S decision, not yours. Don't like it? Too bad. It ISN'T up to you.

I understand how you "feel".
That doesn't make your opinion any more relevant as a matter of law.

Abortions should be limited, regulated and rare, You can thank Dr. Gosnell for the latest round of state laws concerning abortion.!

Only an idiot would need to stoop to Gosnel to make their point. First, look at your initial quote of former president Clinton. No one thinks, or is implying, that Gosnel was even safe.

The only reason you bring up his criminal actions is to inflame and polarize.

I'm sorry that you have no valid argument to bring to the table, and that you must instead stoop to such cheap tactics.

You have the f*cking nerve to say that! LOOK how the left responded to the last 4 high profile shootings and the last terrorist attack in Boston. NO ONE had a problem blaming the right for the events WITHOUT one shred of evidence, let alone truth before the dust had even settled! You call foul when I use the Gosnell trial for the reason why states are passing new abortion laws. WHEN IT IS THE TRUTH! Liberal left making MORE excuses for Gosnell's actions, abortions and terrorist!! With citizens like YOU ,who needs enemies!

Gay marriage maybe a stigma, but abortion is a sin. I am not a gay, but I have many friends who are, and I can see that they are happy in their own world in spite of being prevented to get married to another gay. Don't they have any rights to live life their own ways? Really sad...

Both were looking for sexual pleasure, and share in that sense too, but women remain an incubator for those fun temporary deemed after zest intercourse and insatiable penetration it's a problem and must be treated by abortion even preparing again for fun and passion for sex, while gay is not affected by pregnancy or abortion problems , because he is willing alone to had sex without the consequences of it has all the potential absolute comfort and increased getting the real fun, I find women are different from the psychological concept of sex among homosexual.

You think going further off topic will help your argument?
Please come back to the topic at hand. The reality remains that the more you rely upon off topic sensationalism, the more you admit that you have no valid argument.

Hot topics always boils down to one simple thing - Argument. Let's keep the discussion going without hurting anyone's sentiments.

A question just came to my mind: What if there were no options for abortion like in the primitive days? What would the girls do if they unwillingly get pregnant? Some girls get pregnant after being raped. In such a situation they may have to suffer the blame/scar of pre-marital pregnancy throughout their lives.

Women have been aborting unwanted pregnancies since the dawn of time.

Used to be done with plants, most of which are still present on Earth, and still just as effective. Trouble is, they often killed mom too, because she took too much, or waited too late. It's a relatively easy thing to drink a cup of mandrake root tea three times a day, and the stuff grows wild all over the world. The one good thing bringing abortion into the legal code accomplished, is that doing so made it safer for women to decline pregnancy - not easier, or more available.
