And the examples I've found of girls that age giving birth are also from countries outside the US. Your point?
Amaz was presenting her case as if an abortion would be absolutely necessary in every case to save the life of a 9 year old who became pregnant and I'm pointing out that's not necessarily true. In fact, I could find no cases of 9 year olds who died in childbirth (although I did find record of 1 12 year old who did only because her delivery was horribly mishandled, not because of her age).
You don't think that an abortion would be traumatic for a child that age? Seems to me I'm not the one who needs to open my eyes here...yours appear to be blinded by irrational hatred.

You don't think birth could be traumatic for a girl of 9 or 12? How would you expect a 9 year old to take care of a baby? Things like this happen in the middle east all the time because marrying a 9 year old girl is customary. Girls die in childbirth all the time in countries like these because they have no choice in the matter. We say all the time customs like these are barbaric, but yet, what you are saying here is no different.

We will never agree on this subject and I don't see any use in even talking about it anymore.

Because not talking about it has worked so well for your side since Roe vs Wade....

I didn't say that, did I? There is trauma no matter which path you take and that is added onto the trauma that has already occurred. The pro-abortion camp seems to be implying that no further trauma than what has already occurred for the child to become pregnant would occur if that child is subjected to an abortion procedure (and you are assuming here that the child ALSO wants an abortion, not just her parents). I'm asking readers to consider that the trauma of a 9 year old knowing that she took the life of a developing human could very well be MORE traumatic to her than carrying, delivering and offering that child up for adoption. I take it also that you're of the opinion that if said 9-12 year old doesn't like the idea of an abortion, forcing one on her would not also be an additional trauma?
I also did not state that the 9 year old should be expected to care for the infant. Did you forget that adoption is an option?
My point here..AGAIN...is that while it's FAR FAR from ideal for a 9-12 year old to have a baby, it is NOT a death sentence and there ARE other options, some of which would less traumatic than others, that do not have to involve the taking of an innocent life.

A HUGE majority of babies murdered in the womb are merely the result of economic convenience. That is disgusting. Aren't YOU glad YOUR mother chose NOT to have an abortion.

ADOPT.

If Jesus isn't willing to save innocent children from being molested by catholic priests, what makes you think he's going to save you?

Faith Hope Charity. Back to that, wrong thread, but I'm sure there will be a new anti-christian thread showing up anytime....well,(a)theists are at least predictable.

Just my thought on adoption......I give a ton of credit to any woman who could put a child up for adoption. It must take more courage, selflessness, and heart than I could ever have. There is simply no way on the planet I could imagine carrying a child for 40 weeks, giving the miracle of birth, looking at my flesh and blood, and handing him/her over possibly never to see him/her again. To me, that would be so much more traumatic than to have an abortion, say, at 6-8 weeks along when I find out I am pregnant. I think the woman who are able to do that have so much courage, it is almost unfathomable to me.

On another note, I wish there was a way to deny woman the chance for an abortion in the cases where they are using it as birth control. I had heard years ago of a woman one of my friends knew that had had 8 abortions and was pregnant again and planning another abortion. That, quite frankly, is sick. It seems if you have to face that decision once in your life and choose to have an abortion, many women normally don't see themselves having to face that choice again. Once was enough and they learned they didn't want to go through that again. At least the women I know personally think that way.

Yes, I imagine it's easier to kill the baby you can't see than it is to give the one you can see a chance to go on living.
Some women do go through the process of pregnancy and delivery and then decide to keep their babies, some don't. The bottom line is that it's selfish to take a life to avoid the uncomfortable consequences of your choices.
Saying,'It would just be too hard for me to give the baby up' is a shitty justification for taking its life no matter how pretty anyone tries to make it sound and STILL a selfish one when you think about it. It's too hard for YOU...really? How hard is it for the baby to torn apart and sucked out piece by piece?
Sad that in this country we dispose of our unwanted pets more humanely than we dispose of our unwanted children.

But yet that 9 year old should give birth and keep the child, then you beotch about having to support it, because she is busy caring for the child so she can't get an education, and they cycle goes on. So which way do you want it say what? The perfect world does NOT exist! Each individual is different. LMS is correct with the birth control instance, you however, are not. LMS can see both sides , but you are blinded with your self rightous attitude of my way or the highway. When they need welfare you scream for the injustice of it, but yet you want children to give birth that could traumatize them.

You have no right to go into someone elses life and tell them how to live it. Why don't you just take care of your own and forget about what others do and keep out of their life.

Just because you are a total w/hore and a prostitute with zero respect for human life doesn't mean that everyone should be subjected to you shoving your ridiculous views down their throats. I think you are a self-righteous beyotch and a disgrace to society
