You stupid moron! Iraq is not the same as the Taliban..Yes now after we attacked them without cause. Your beloved bush flew out all the Bin-Ladens on 9-11. Only planes in the sky. Rumsfield let the Taliban go. The military had them cornered. Where have you been? Living under a moldy rock with all the other stupid woodchucks, with your brain tuned into Rush Skumball and "Faux" news"!
Did I mention iraq ?
Stick to your one line sewer comments at least then you won't be embarassed at the same time you reveal you sewer mentality!

You insinuated such in yor reply and you know it supersonic sonic sewer sauce! The poster you replied to made reference to the war. Did you think he was speaking of the Crusades? Only someone with cattle cookies for brains couldn't figure it out.
Lastly, I'm not embarrassed but you should be, and you should not use words you cannot spell! go blow mud out your **** you human espresso machine.

As a pro life advocate I think the photos are too graphic to be shown on a public street corner. If you want to make a point and have someone take you seriously I think there is a better way than to force things down someones throat. Those are really hard pictures to hold up in front of someone who may be very young or a pro life person who would rather not have that image burned in their memory forever. I do think that those photos should be shown during preabortion counseling if it is offered so women have all the facts about what is happening.

I support the new law that Requires Women To Name Baby, Paint Nursery Before Getting Abortion

Thanks for your response, we are definitely on the same page.
enough excuses isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, is she?
You are not too sharp yourself. I see a lot of valid points in the things "enough excuses" is saying. She never said abortion has not been around for ages. We are talking about now. Just because it has been practiced for centuries does not make it okay. Let's not talk about protecting peoples rights but doing the right thing. And taking a tiny human and cutting it's limbs off so it can be easily pulled out or saline being injected into the amniotic fluid so the tiny human burns and shrivels up does not seem right to me, no matter the circumstances. There are women who have been down that path who regret very deeply what they have done. You will believe what you want no matter what, but people are not stupid just because they do not believe the same things you do.

I just got done watching some abortion videos on youtube. If I ever had a shadow of a doubt if there were any cases in which it should be okay, then I am clear now. It is wrong. Plain and simple, it is WRONG! Genocide of the human race is what it is.

And I suppose you think there are NO women who deeply regret having their child, then takle it out on the child? Go listen to this 911 tape and tell me these children would not have been better off never born, just click the video to start it: http://www.usposttoday.com/saiqa-akhter-tx-mo...

Doctors are willing to perform late term abortions and will make up medical excuses if need be. Yes there are cases where a child is ill or profoundly retarded or whatever, but a women can use mental illness as an excuse. I have read stories of women who changed their minds after aborting viable living babies and the doctors just throw them in a bag with other dead babies and let them die. Once they are aborted, the abortion doc will not revive them or keep them alive until the ambulance gets there if the woman changes her mind. If a woman stays pregnant that long, why cant she have the child in a hospital and give it up for adoption? There are so many people out there that want babies. Those images are not pleasant.Why do people think that we have to be shielded from everything in life? WE need a dose of reality. If I was ever considering an abortion, I would rather be educated before doing it than seeing these images afterwards and feeling guilty for the rest of my life.

you take a look at the abortion videos and photos and tell me that is okay. None of it is okay. The fact is people suck. You do not condone child abuse and neither do I . Abortion is child abuse just before they are born. You are sick if you think it is okay.

Most women don't take abortion lightly; if they choose to have one, those pictures won't stop them from having one.

I know a good many people who have considered abortion and did not after seeing these types of pictures. These pictures depict the truth. I was myself an unwed mother 20 years ago. I could never do that to my child especially after seeing what they do to them. I would never be able to live with myself if I had done that and saw pictures later. I have a beautiful son who is the light of my life and I had relatives try to talk me into an abortion because the father did not want to be involved. Women have the right to choose but they should know the truth about it before walking into it blindly. Those pictures are grotesque no doubt about it, but this isnt a movie its real life. There is no reason to not educate the public on this.
