The difference is that those kids died for no other reason than to cover up your god's kid. It's not like he never intervened/interfered with things before.

In the first trimester, the "heart" is just a tube; you really think it has a four-chambered, true heart? I guess "abortion stops a throbbing tube" isn't melodramatic enough.

Most people are fine with removing unwanted organisms from the body; tapeworms are more fully-developed than 1st-trimester fetuses.

You do understand free will right?
For God to step in and force a person to do other then they intend on doing, would no longer be free will.
As far as my other post. I'm not talking about citizens. I'm talking about how people don't seem to mind taking a human heart and stopping it.
Yet some of the same people love groups like PETA that fight over doing the same thing to panda bears and other animals.
Yet I geuss they value humans less than a animal.
Some on here even less then that.

<quoted text>That's just histrionic malarkey. What we want is forced women to keep the right that they rightfully have to make autonomous decisions regarding their pregnancies. That's why it's called the Right to Choose. That's as far from sharia law as we can get.
:
For who? Again if the timing is bad, if the woman "just decides " then the little human who may grow up to be who knows what in life is put to death.

Men can take the woman and cut their head off in some places for very little reasons.

Here women can take their babies in and have their head cut off, for very little reason.

When is anyone "normal people " fully prepared to handle all that comes with a child?

Some women live with regret, becouse they had kids,although someone like me just can't understand that. I love my daughter sooo much!

Perhaps if I would have had her, when I was younger, I would have thought differently? Idk

Some women regret having an abortion, even if other women do not, or can't understand how.

The goal should be educating young women about the pros and cons of having kids.
Yet they need even more education on pregnancy.
When is anyone held accountable anymore?
We try and "fix " bad behavior, but history tells us, the behavior simply goes on.
A baby does restrict young women, but I personaly know some young girls who are thankfull they have had a baby.
the baby saved their life.

The numbers should be going down, if pp are doing anything at all worth while.

If any business doesn't start seeing better results, then they are shut down.

Pp don't have to show better results -they get their money anyway.

Pp cares only for the position they hold, and the money to keep flowing in.

Even if women feel they should have abortions, then they should atleast be held accountable to pay for "their " own abortion.

There are illegal abortions happening now, and are just as safe as the legal ones.

When laws validate our behaviors, it makes us feel better about what we do.
The more people that say it is ok, the better we feel.

You DO realize that not all states do, right? And that in those that do, the choice is STILL the woman's under various conditions, right?
And WHAT has that to do with the point anyway, Witless? RvW can hardly be considered "Sharia Law".
My question to her was, why do you think there are restrictions put on a woman's 'right to choose'. If you want to answer, then you tell me why it was neccessary?

BS. People in biblical times believed life began at birth--the first breath. Your god had no problem killing babies, you liar. He told the isrealites to kill every living thing in cities they conquered, in one case specifically telling them to rip open the bellies of pregnant women. It says to dash your baby's head against the rocks. There were children in sodom and gomorrah, as well as pregnant women--just as there were during the great flood. He killed the first-born of egypt, including children. Your god is absolutely thrilled when babies die, evidently.

<quoted text> The Fifth Commandment states,“You shall not kill.” The literal translation of this commandment forbids murder. This is not about a prohibition on killing cattle for food or on killing bugs for our safety. Nor is it an absolute prohibition on repelling an aggressor. The commandment means that we do not have authority to murder the innocent. Babies are always in that category. The commandment against directly, deliberately killing a baby or any other innocent person is absolute. When one has an abortion, and support abortion, they are spitting in God's Eye. May God have mercy on their souls.

Of course they do.
Pregnant girls want to know their options and are sold an abortion.
They are told they blob can be removed.
The blob is a human.
When others have seen what the baby does during an abortion and walks away no longer believing it is a blob, that should tell you.
These are doctors who have a valid opinion.
They have seen the baby "not a blob " -kicking and trying to get away from the death tool.
They see the babies heart rate increase greatly as the babies is fighting for its life.
Perhaps it truly is as bad as some say. I say it is.
That means bad news for folks if God is real. I say He is.
The "good news " is how He made a way to escape what is to come.
Gtown, when women miscarry, they (the pregnant woman) often refer to it as a blood clot, tissue, a ball of tissue. "Went to the ER around 9 after passing a ball of tissue". What is your point? So what IF in fact doctors call it a blob, hell the mothers don't always refer to it as having lost a baby.

Because it was the middle ground between the state's, and the individual's rights based upon the Constitution.

Why would I mind? Do you mean to tell me you've never gotten clue one my concerns aren't where less than 2% percent of all annual abortions lie but in the first trimester, for the 98% of annual abortions, where Constitutionally women do not have to give any reason for terminating to anyone? Not the gov't. Not the clergy. And not the nosy parkers like you. You know, the section where you think women are playing god and should just remain pregnant because they willingly had sex and possibly an orgasm?

So what. The fact remains that there are women who DO have deep regrets about becoming mothers and wish they had their old life back. The one they had BEFORE they got pregnant. Here is one such story, and I've read many others like it.

I hate motherhood

Jan. 11, 2008 at 1:10am

by Beba2m

"Why is it that we are conned into thinking that motherhood is a blissful, satisfying, and rewarding blessing? I attend a mothers group for young mothers and the other day one of the social workers asked..."Who hates being a mom?" Everyone looked at each other as if they were afraid of the question and that admitting to it is a mortal sin. My hand shot up. After a year of being a mother I can't hate it more. It just prevents me being truly happy. I know some women out there have invested time and money into having a child and think its the most glorious and officious thing in the world. But I think that from little girls we are brain washed into thinking that being a mother is what our duty is. Its evident by the toys marketed towards girls: baby dolls that poop and pee with their carriages, little tiny kitchens, even vacuum and broom sets. JESUS!

Needless to say my pregnancy was unplanned and unwanted. I was 21, unmarried, and still in college with hopes of attending medical school. I dreaded being pregnant and the permanent scars it would leave on my already flawed body. I thought that once I had the baby I would love being a mother and a wife. The truth is I hate it. I couldn't love my child anymore, his smile touches a part of my heart that no one else can, but I don't like being his mother.

It is just a burden I don't want to deal with at this point of my life. The feeding, the changing, the constant neediness, which I know will perpetuate until the day I die. I decided to breastfeed him and still do and regret every day I decided to do this. It has been 14mo since he was born and I still have no ownership of my body. I have tried to ween him, but he become unbearable.

Before having him I was a straight A student, active in school, and I held up to two jobs. Now its seems I can't get my shit straight. My grades would be more that satisfactory for other students, but they just don't cut it for me. I feel like I have to choose between my dreams, and being a good mother, which isn't fair.

I have all the love and support from my husband, but its not enough because I feel like a failure, like I've failed myself. All these emotions have just turned into anger, and its just boiling inside of me because its turned into hate. I can't control my anger anymore. I can't stand being alone all day with my son. He wants to be all over me and all I want is my space. I try to play with him, but I'd rather be elsewhere. I feel like I have to give and give and give, but in return nothing.

To make things worse, I'm totally isolated. My mother lives in an other state. All my friends graduated 2 years ago and moved on with their lives. I have no friends I can relate to, even when I'm at school. I just feel thrusted into a position where I had no say, and I was pushed into it "because it was the right thing to do".

Now I'm filled with regrets, mourn the loss of the life and the person that I was (which I really liked) and feel all alone in life. I hate being a mother. I hate my life. Most of all I hate what I've become. "

Yes women sometimes miscarry ,and yes they tell the doctor I think I passed "it " or I passed a wade of???.

My point is, it is still a baby no matter what it is called.

Left alone chances are the human baby will grow and grow.

My main point is planned parenthood -don't plan ANYTHING but the death of the wade, fetus, baby,????.
