How DARE a woman choose to be something other than a brood mare?
You're saying she can't be a woman because she didn't have kids? Buy a dictionary and a fistful of clues. Did your god die and appoint YOU gender arbiter?
You'd think if alveda king was really suffering, she wouldn't have had MORE than one abortion?
My mom miscarried twice AND lost a child a month after birth; she said the two were NOTHING alike.

<quoted text> Wow, you are full of your own filth. Funny thing, I know women who have type one diabetes and have children, and are very sad when they miscarry,
I didn't say she wasn't sad about it Kuntbar - I said later on in her life she was THANKFUL it happened because of the level of illness on both her side AND my father's side of the family. At the time she was sad. But as the years went on and she learned more about how illnesses like MS and diabetes and genetic heart disease, she was thankful that stopped with HER.
my mom miscarried and felt the sadness way into her later years.
Goodie for her.
I would say you cannot speak for women because you refused to be a wife and mother by your choice.
Yet I am BOTH a wife AND a mother by my choice.

Oh, you mean because I ADOPTED one of the unwanted kids your kind rejected for years that means I cant speak for women?? ROFLMAO!! Oh fk you and the horse you rode in on Knutter.

Yeah, God gave you free will, you chose wrong,
Says who? YOU DONT MAKE THAT CALL y'dumb thing.

You will be accounted for your choice when you meet Christ face to face. AND YOU WILL.
Uh no. I wont. If G-d has an issue with my life and my choices, it will be between myself and Him.

If your jesus has an issue with it, he can fk himself too (and your horse as well), since he's not MY G-d. I certainly do NOT have to account to anyone that means LESS than nothing to me, not now and not ever.

If anything I would spit in his face for allowing idiots like you to DARE to think your kind speak for g-d.
Many women do suffer from an abortion, many have regretted it and spent years in therapy,
If they've spent years in therapy, they've got a LOT more issues that having an abortion.
Martin Luther King Jrs neice and others have gone through years of pain.
Oh horseshit. Alveda had her abortions and when she was beyond her slutty stage, and couldn't make any legitimate money, she decided to pimp herself out to the extremist right. I'm sure she's hurting a whole lot on her way to the bank.@@
You cannot speak for God when your views are so demonic.
I NEVER try to speak for G-d.

YOU do however, and that makes YOU demonic, since last I checked, nobody died and no gray smoke made YOU pope.

Actually, I do not use NFP. I cannot use NFP due to occasional antihistamine use for sinus headaches. I use the Rhythm Method and I was only able to do so in the last 7 years or so when my cycle became somewhat regular. Prior to that, my cycle was very irregular, I would've never been able to successfully use RM and my SO and I used condoms and spermicide. With that said, RM is not a method that I highly recommend unless one is truly open to the possibility of having another child simply because the failure rate is high. If one is truly adamant about preventing pregnancy, there are better and more effective methods to use. As with all methods of birth control, I always suggest that women research all methods, whether they be artificial or natural, and use the one that is best for them.
Thank you so much for clarifying that. Yes, anyone practicing NFP or RM must be aware that she is at high risk for pregnancy.

Never said it did, you ignorant buffoon. None of you fools gets that I only posted that for the purpose of proving Kathwynn wrong in his claim that Connor died "after popping out" of his mother. He died BEFORE, while still in utero, was the point.
You all post off of each other's stupidity in what you think someone posted or why they posted it.
you are a lying sack of trash. You posted that law in response to me and not anything Kathwynn said. You said it legally defined a fetus as a human being. I said it defines a fetus as a victim and the punishment for harming or causing the death of is the same. LOL.

Uh no Lynne, that may have been YOUR "point", but as usual, you're a moron with NO idea what she's talking about.

The Unborn Victims of Violence Act was first introduced in Congress in 1999 by then-Congressman (later Senator) Lindsey Graham.

1999. Years BEFORE their deaths.

It had NOTHING to do with the Petersons.

At one time, the year it was finally passed (years AFTER their deaths) it was nicknamed Laci and Conner's Law.

It had NOTHING TO DO with whether or not the kid died in or out of his mothers womb you dumbass, it was that they were VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE.

California HAD a fetal homicide law intact at the time.

And the FACT is that it is NOT KNOWN if he died before or after, despite your bullshit claims.

The Unborn Victims of Violence act had nothing to do with the Petersons EXCEPT the family lent their name to the cause to get federal legislation going because of the publicity of the murders.

You seem to think the law was drafted BECAUSE of the kid, when NOTHING could be further from the truth and that your claims are legitimized BY the law.

You're an idiot. But its HYSTERICAL to watch!! THANK You for the laugh!

Most of those little actions are so narrow and localized that they are fairly ineffective. A fetus will never have the status of "person," or citizen. You, of course, just dismissed that fact with your little, "True, but..." Again, it's a huge point. Huge, and it is what will always protect a woman's right to choose.

No it's not, liar. It's clear on what it means by the law, and nowhere does it state "potential" unborn child, or "potential".
You're making shit up and posting it like it's fact and it's nothing but more of your lies.
You provide where, in that law it states the word "potential". If you won't, it's because you know you can't because it's not there.
I never SAID It was there IN the law you FLIPPING DUMBASS!! LOL!!! Stop trying to put words in my mouth that I never said OR inferred.

I'm talking about why the laws were created to begin with.

THese laws were written because tragedies were compounded when a woman with a wanted pregnancy was murdered, PARTICULARLY when it was a late term pregnancy with a viable fetus, and NO laws existed that would punish the perpetuator of the crimes for the dead fetus.

There were cases where the woman lived and the fetus died, and all the perpetuator got was a slap on the wrist.

These laws were written and created because the law RECOGNIZED THE POTENTAL CHILD, and they HAD to come up with laws to effectively punish those that until the early 2000's, were walking away effectively unpunished and unscathed.

In FACT the law was SPECIFICALLY crafted from cases like Tracy Marciniak back in 1992, who's husband tried to kill her, instead killed the fetus 5 days before her due date.

He went to jail for less than a year.

THAT is why these laws were written, to cover the cases where the woman DIDN'T die, but her WANTED fetus was, and to be able to prosecute EFFECIVELY the perpetuators of the crimes.

Why do you reply to my posts saying the exact same thing I said? Why not just post that you agree?
That's not what Ayakaneo was saying.
She's combining 2 different discussions, and the reason I posted that law had nothing to do with the reason that thouight I did. She thought it had something to do with a discussion she was having with NR. Can you people at least TRY to pay attention so you can stop looking like stupid fools who can't follow along?
I am paying attention. Here, for those "stupid fools who can't follow along."

There's only one truth for me concerning abortion:
A fetus is alive before an abortion and it is dead after an abortion.
Abortion destroys life, and this is what makes it wrong and worth fighting against.
But you picture a newborn baby being killed when in reality the embryo is about the size of a Tic Tac. Ninety-eight percent of abortions take place between seven to eight gestational weeks.

You want to restrict/remove women's civil rights for something the size of a Tic Tac. Something unwanted or unhealthy. And you think it's your call to make.

Lynne, first off MOST of us would take the word of a cockroach over your word.

Second, first you're bitching because people "have to look it up" as you've pissed and moaned about so often here, and NOW you're criticizing because they're NOT.@@

ANd frankly, coming from the stupid bitch that DOESNT bother to look things up BEFORE she mouths off (like the lie you told when you claimed to know someone who was born in a pvs, or that the Victims of Violence act PROVED when Connor died)- you're criticism is laughable at BEST!

NORMAL people have discussions like this with their spouses when their spouse is in the appropriate industry or business to know what they're speaking about. J's a micro-biologist and biology teacher, so when there's things like this that come up, I personally DO ask her, as it usually spurs discussion with her and can sometimes give a different perspective.

YOU are clearly one of those people that doesn't know how to have discussions let alone anything resembling civil conversation.

<quoted text>Your personal religious beliefs may be that a man has a right "to what the two created," but unless the woman allows it, you have no say about it. Pregnancy is not something men can control, except through prevention. Boys, wear a condom.
Well if the woman don't grant the man she married, His wishes on "their " child, then chances are, there will be one more marriage bite the dust.

Not that marriage is anything prodeath folks hold as sacred.
If they don't value human life inside the womb, they will not hold value to anything, but their own "happiness "and desires.

No problem. I actually like using the method because it's free and easy to use, lol. The biggest cons is that you have to have a regular cycle in order for it to be effective, you have to keep track of your cycle and you have to understand that when you're feeling like a mongoloid in heat, lol, it's also at the point in your cycle when pregnancy is most likely to occur. Like I said before, you really have to be open to pregnancy and I'm at the point in life where if it happens, it happens and if it doesn't, it doesn't. However, I am getting older and because of the higher risks associated with getting pregnant at an older age, I am considering getting sterilized via Essure.
