Klueless Katie: "But I do have the PP report. It reported 333K abortions. And still only 3% of everything they provide."
That's the same number reported in the link I provided you (333K).
You were all concerned about including Planned Parenthood's financials, yet you ignore that about 40% of it's operating income comes from abortions.
You're a mess.
PP didn't say 333K was a record number of abortions, somebody else did. They grabbed that fundie ring in your nose and pulled you along.

You don't know or understand what you're reading and have nothing but audacity to convince you you're right. Takes more than that to survive and thrive in the real world.

No mam, you've stated many times how upset it makes you, when young girls are only told the joys of motherhood, and how they should be told ALL of the facts. You then turn around and spew out all and any negative thing you can come up with, about having and raising a baby. How many people would take prescription meds, if all they have been told is the negative side effects?
To answer your question, I don't know. But I do think it's a good idea that the negative side effects of those meds ARE mentioned in advertisements, so people can make an INFORMED choice whether to use them or not.

That is precisely why I mention the HARDSHIPS of motherhood, which are usually hidden from girls/women who haven't had children yet. The way I see it, many girls and young women are PRESSURED to have children, usually by regressive folks who believe that marriage and motherhood are the ONLY "suitable occupations" for women, and they aren't told all the facts. Sorry (not really), but I think keeping those negative facts hidden from girls/young women is something that needs to change. Don't like my mentioning them? Too bad...for you, that is.

It appears I've been the one correcting YOUR errors.
You need a "Google For Dummies" book, new calculator, and a personality.
Goodnight. Count sheep. It's good practice for math.
** pat, pat **
You didn't correct anything. I corrected you. You got info from Washington Examiner. When I looked, I found only fundie RR sites carrying the same headline. So I went to PP itself and found the info.

A car salesman may get 40% of his annual income from selling one specific car in that reporting year.

Your confidence in yourself is a bit misplaced, NR. But I don't expect any less.

Teens today? Prob not, but many older folks were born to teen moms. Most abortions don't come from teens anyway. Most come from older women, that use their right to go to bars and have one night stands, then want to get rid of the "problem ",but abortion is not their main problem -sin is, which is all our main problem.
S.I.N.= Self-Inflicted NONSENSE. That's MY take on the whole "sin" thing, anyway. As for "older folks were born to teen moms," so what. Teen pregnancy/motherhood is NOT a good thing, no matter how many folks falsely claim "teen motherhood isn't so bad."

Life of the mother, I believe should be allowed for abortion. Although I would personally perfer adoption for rape and incest, we'll let the Supreme Court and government decide that. I'm on the fence with exceptions for rape and incest. But every other reason should be illegal. If it is illegal, the PERSON PERFORMING IT should be charged, NOT THE WOMAN. In this country you can have an abortion for an adreniline rush. Would you let a woman have an abortion just for fun? Because you can do that here. Now for women who can't afford the child, just give up the child for adoption. It wouldn't hurt to give the child to someone who wants to care for it. Right? It's better to be in a foster home and live life instead of not being the chance to live at all. Some people will have a hard life. Just accept it. Abortion won't make anything better or solve the problem.
Thankfully, NO woman has to run her life by what YOU believe. And your callous indifference to those who are forced to live a hard life is duly noted.@@

The ONLY person who rightfully decides whether to continue a pregnancy or not is the WOMAN who is pregnant. If it isn't YOUR pregnancy, it isn't your decision, simple as that.

So my guess is that if a 30 year old married woman who is wealthy and has 2 kids just wants an abortion because she "feels like experiencing it", that would be okay with you? Because that's how the law currently stands. The government can also force a woman to pay taxes. Does the government regulate murder? Yes. Is it a moral reason? Yes. So yes, I believe that the government can regulate abortion IF they do it right. But the way the government is working now, I cannot give you a definite "everything will work out" speech, because it won't. If abortion is regulated, yes there will be illegal abortions performed and people will break the law. But murder is still performed even though it is illegal. It's ironic how you say "it's the pregnant woman's call" because most of the people who are members of Plannned Parenthood and NARAL have never experienced abortions. And yet there are many women who are coming out, saying that they were pressured to have one by someone, whether it be a boyfriend, family member, Planned Parenthood worker, etc. and they regreted it. There are alot of strong women out there who are smart enough not to buy your "Woman's Right" nonsense. Because, unlike you, they're smart enough to know that there is a BEATING HEART in that womb.
There are some women who do NOT regret having an abortion at all, they only regret GETTING pregnant in the first place.

You can't re-write the creation of mankind. Pregnancy was intentionally included in who we are. It is normal & not a disease. You want to make pregnancy a disease in order to dehumanize humans.
Pregnancy CAN be considered a disease, or certainly an unwanted condition to any woman who doesn't want to get or stay pregnant. Not every woman WANTS pregnancy or children, and NO woman has to get or stay pregnant just to make anti-choice imbeciles like you happy.

It just pisses you and other anti-choice extremists off that women CAN choose to abort a pregnancy for the most basic reason; she doesn't want to be pregnant. Too bad for you, NoRelevance; you DON'T get to force women to stay pregnant against their will. Suck it up, LOSER.

So what. I'll never consider teen pregnancy or teen motherhood to be a good thing.

TEEN MOTHERHOOD NEGATIVES:

- Missing school days
- Falling behind in school work
- Losing sleep at night...for many nights
- Worrying about how to pay for formula and diapers
- Staying home with a screaming, crying baby instead of going out and having fun
- Constantly changing wet and stinky diapers
- Giving up your favorite activities, sports, and hobbies
- Missing out on prom
- Losing friends who don't want to be around babies
- Losing out on the college or vocational school of choice
- Dropping out of high school
- Having to settle for low-income jobs, often without benefits
- Always being short of money
- Giving up all dreams of higher education and dream career for a long time, perhaps forever
- Being trapped in the dead-end "job" known as "occupation: housewife."
- Losing all freedom and independence to go and do whatever a girl wants

TEEN MOTHERHOOD POSITIVES:

None

The way I see it, there are NO positives of teen motherhood at all. The only people who insist it's a good thing fall into one of two categories; 1. those who never wanted girls to have higher education and career in the first place, and 2. girls who already teen mothers and have to make the best of it, no matter how truly unhappy they might be.

Girls cannot afford to let themselves believe that teen motherhood, which too often leads to real poverty, is better than higher education and career. The best key to escape the trap of poverty, or to avoid falling into it to begin with, is EDUCATION. Without that education, girls risk being trapped in the cycle of poverty, which they may never escape from.

You must be referring to pregnancy. You see, the baby is in mom's womb during pregnancy. Didn't your mom teach you the birds & the bees?
Moron Alert
No, she taught me about sex and reproduction, and I've expanded on what she taught me with a real education in human anatomy and physiology. Unlike your fake "medical school" education. I can even talk about them without resorting to childish language, unlike you. Apparently, YOUR education on the subjects remain at the level of a child.

There is no "baby" in a "womb". There is an embryo or fetus in a uterus.

Still, we weren't talking about anatomy, we were talking about rights. The woman has civil rights, and the embryo/fetus has none, no matter how much you want to pretend otherwise.

So? I've been a clean addict for well over 20 years now. See No Relvance, much like abortion, I make CHOICES, and my CHOICE is to never use again.

Women CHOOSE not to be pregnant. That's their privledge and their right.

Addiction is much LIKE pregnancy in a way - one can CHOOSE to be an active addict or not or CHOOSE to be actively pregnant or not. And if the CHOICE is "not", they can DO something about it.

You trying to use a pointless weapon against me (pun intended) is YOUR folly, but it has no bearing on the FACTS in this issue.
