Don't late term abortions require a medical reason?

Lets show pictures of murdered people, kids torn apart in auto accidents, open chests of smokers with lung cancer, genitals with some gross STD, etc etc etc.

The proponents of killing a child in the womb don't like those pictures for a reason.

They show the humanity of the child in the womb.

Everyone knows the unborn child is life. Oh they use medical terms like "fetus" but it's a baby.

And when the mother has the baby killed, it doesn't make her not a mother anymore, it makes her the mother of a dead baby.

Those awful signs are absolutely necessary.
Otherwise the baby becomes "an unviable tissue mass" or "a blob of cells" or "the product of conception".

When in reality, it is a human life that God created and man has murdered.

We see pictures like this in the news everyday. Most people don't even notice because we have been de-sensitized by the media. And that is OK? But showing people the truth about Abortion is not acceptable?

Why is showing people the truth about war unacceptable? Why was there rightwing outrage when journalists published pictures of the dead from Iraq? Why was there rightwing outrage when pictures of dead Lebanese children, killed by Israeli military, surfaced? Surely there isn't a double-standard from the right on this issue.

No Elijah I don't and I'll thank you to keep your offensive images out of public. And frankly your opinion on the matter is worth about as much as the normal PO story since you can't get pregnant..

Yes, the truth can be uncomfortable or even hurt at times. And the truth of the matter is, even though society or some judges say it's legal, it's simply legalized murder. So go ahead, pretty yourself up, make sure your hair is on straight and your clothes clean and pressed, then walk outside to face the world, and proclaim yourself a MURDERER, murderer.

Yeah this will work. We have proof because there have been many graphic images of dead soldiers and other victims of war and we don't fight wars anymore...oh wait

Do something useful and adopt a child you bloviating hypocrites. The children's aid society of franklin county has lots of opportunities for you to walk the walk.

You think it should be illegal for a mother to abort a fetus that is has a fatal illness, that when it is born it may live a few hours but most likely die in the womb or during birth ? You think she should be made to carry it full term and risk her life in the process?

Now, now, now. Don't be bringing your elitist moral ambiguity in here. This is a black and white issue only. There is one good position and everything else is evil.

This same group tells lies such as "Abortion Causes Cancer."

You are despicable people. Nobody LIKES abortion, but it is every woman's right to choose.

No, I sincerely DO NOT agree. You don't defend the position that showing videos of rapes would stop a rapist, do you? Utter nonsense. It's a woman's decision to complete a pregnancy or not. It is HER womb! It is HER entire life that she will have to commit to another living being. SHE should decide what to do.

Actually after looking at the numbers of innocent people killed in Iraq and Afghanistan I'd argue that if you support the wars there you're a murderer. So do you support the wars there? Murderer. What, think you're not?

The truth of the matter is that the legal definition of murder is just that, a legal term. It has no bearing on what you believe is right or wrong. It's a black or white issue devoid of morality.

So you think abortion is murder. Go cry me a river. It's legal, so it's not murder, no matter that you want to shove your worldview down everyone's throat. You can choose, FOR YOU, not to have an abortion. But keep your beliefs to yourself.

"A nation that kills it's own children is a nation without hope" The Pope

Hmm, and that quote comes from someone that has knowingly hidden the fact that bishops, and priests and other Catholic hierarchy have been molesting and raping little boys for decades. The Pope didn't deem that sin punishable.
So let me get this straight, it's wrong to abort a fetus under all circumstances but it's ok to have sex with children. g/ay sex. sodomy.
What an awesome religion. If I was Catholic I would be so proud.

"Open your eyes! Murder is murder."

According to the law, you are incorrect. It is not murder and individuals have the right to choose :)

I do not agree with anything you just had to say. Who are you to tell someone what they can and cannot do with their OWN body? You have no right just like I don't have a right to tell you what to do with yours. You freaking people need to get a life and stop medeling in others!!
