Yes. Most pro-choice people do. Have you ever seen an intestinal resection? FAR grosser...and life-saving.

Most medicalprocedures are unpleasant to laymen. It doesn't mean they shouldn't be done.

Never will, Elise, so long as there's no conscience or sense of humanity about your own abortion that killed your own unborn child.

The word bible simply means book.

"Even without religion, abortion stops a living process that would more then likely lead to and infant -toddler -kid -teen -adult."

So?

"They say it is legal for ALL women for Any reason."

They are right.

"Are you not very thankful, that ALL women don't take advantage of their rights?"

Each and every woman who has ever been pregnant HAS taken advantage of her right to choose. I am thankful that this right exists for them.

"Even if someone believes in the far ferched evolution theory, then they could easily see how some things are against the very nature of human existence."

We circumvent nature every day. You ever taken an antibiotic?

"Abortion is one of those things."

No different from any other medical procedure that treats or eliminates any medical condition.

"God even condems a man from having sex with his wife, if he leads her to believe she will have a child, and then he does something to protect himself from getting her pregnant."

Which has nothing to do with anything we're discussing, even if true. The bible does not condemn abortion.

"We continue to make things legal that bring destruction upon us."

Abortion does no such thing.

"Someone can look at the history of many Great countries and groups of people who were destroyed from within."

You do have trouble staying on topic, don't you?

"People should be free to do whatever they will, but they must also take responsibility for their actions."

What constitutes responsible action regarding an unplanned pregnancy is a matter of opinion, not fact. And the fact is that the only opinion that matters, is that of the pregnant woman.

"There are many verses about what God thinks about reproducing."

And yet not one word against abortion.

Petey: "It's your opinion that there are babies in the womb. Science says otherwise."

"Babies" is subjective. There IS a "child" in the womb, and by definition, "child" includes "unborn fetus".

You have no point in claiming there's no baby in the womb, when anyone with sense knows exactly what the fetus is in relation to the woman. It's her child and whether or not you choose to deny that doesn't change that biological (scientific) fact, fool.

You don't have the knowledge to post facts, and that's proven each time you post.

Don't state that as a fact when it's only an opinion. An opinion of a person who has no humanity toward her own child in utero killed by abortion, and no conscience about it, and would have no problem with women aborting all the way until full term labor.

Wrong. Biologically, she is pregnant. Biology does not say she's a mother. You're full of shit, Troll.
"• Women who have never married and are not cohabiting account for 45% of all abortions [6]

• About 61% of abortions are obtained by women who have one or more children.[6]"

In previous post you said,
Bitner: "Incorrect. Less than half of all abortions are performed on women who are not married, or living with someone, at the time."

The stats on your link are about "never" married and not living with someone at time of abortion.

The other stats on your link about 1 or more children does NOT state whether or not those women have been married and were then (divorced or widowed)= SINGLE when they had an abortion. So, you're still not correct, and haven't proven that you are. You can't guess and say those women were married or living with someone when they went for an abortion, just because they had children.

Bitner: "Wrong. Biologically, she is pregnant. Biology does not say she's a mother. You're full of shit, Troll."

You're the one full of shit if you think you can deny that the relation of a pregnant woman to the human life in her womb (talking biologically here), is that human life's mother. You're an uneducated fool if you really believe that.

FYI -- An example of Catholic indoctrination. That phrase we keep hearing, "culture of death"? I looked into last night. It originated with Pope John Paul in '95. And the Catholics have run with it to this point:

"What does “Culture of Death” Mean?
The Culture of Death is a very broad term, which describes evil behavior. It goes beyond the mere evil acts, however. In the deepest sense, it describes the attraction our culture has with sin, lust, and death. Our culture not only permits, but promotes abortion, euthanasia, murder, revenge, suicide (assisted or otherwise), war, capital punishment, contraception, human cloning, human sterilization, embryonic stem cell and fetal research, In Vitro Fertilization, homosexuality, promiscuity, infidelity, and divorce.
These proclivities lead to the destruction of life and its natural origins. They devalue human life, leading to an explosion of all types of sins. When we do not value human life, we do not value people. This leads us to sin by harming ourselves and others since we do not see the face of God in others. Here is what the Didache says about the “Way of Death”
http://www.solemncharge.com/post/2012/10/19/W...

A book review by one who read the "Architects of the Culture of Death"

"The "Culture of Death" has become a popular phrase, and is much bandied about in academic circles. Yet, for most people, its meaning remains vague and remote. DeMarco and Wiker have given the Culture of Death high definition and frightening immediacy. They have exposed its roots by introducing its "architects." In a scholarly, yet reader-friendly delineation of the mindsets of twenty-three influential thinkers, such as Ayn Rand, Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Jean-Paul Sartre, Alfred Kinsey, Margaret Sanger, Jack Kevorkian, and Peter Singer, they make clear the aberrant thought and malevolent intentions that have shaped the Culture of Death."

Real people in the real world, like K&P and JM, NR and Doc, are being spoonfed this crap and they're eating up like candy. They believe in it, which is worse, imo. They *want* it to be true.

A lot of assumptions, but no real data. It really doesn't matter how a woman gets pregnant; she doesn't have to stay pregnant. It's quaint that you think pleasure need to be punished.

There most certainly is safe sex--I taught it for years. It's just that most heteros are too frigging lazy to learn or use it.

Laws are not there to enforce your morality; they are there to protect our rights.

When People choose to have sex, They assume all wrist that come along with it. You know as well as I do that most people who get pregnant don't even use contraceptives. Most abortions come from a 1 night stand or a very short term relationship.
People want pleasure without any negative ramifications,but that is not how life works. If there was no God, it would work that way, but people would not like that very much either. It would mean someone could rape,murder, or both and be just fine.
People want to condemn others, and at the same time get away with whatever they choose.
Contraceptives was introduced to try to fix a problem.
- They did not fix anything.
All they did was send a message to most the sex could be safe, but as you and I both know there's no such thing as safe sex.
I'm not trying to impose laws,that says everyone must live according to the Bible, since I know full well that most people never live according to the Bible.
This is the whole reason why Jesus Christ came.
We needed a savior,and still do.
I also do not believe we should make laws that condone that behavior,and even "add to " the bad behaviors.
No sex, is worth the killing of life.
Motherhood is optional, but abortion only makes a woman the mother of a dead child.

Since when have you been here to discuss abortion, Toots? You've spent the majority of your time posting snipes at PLers. Now you want us to believe you want "an equal exchange of ideas"? Fat chance that would come from you, especially since you would need equal intelligence, knowledge of facts and sense to the PLers. You're at a disadvantage, and no ideas coming from you would be equal in those areas. All of you has the disadvantage, and the exchange of ideas with any of you would never be equal. Everything coming from you PC is ignorant, senseless and uninformed.
You are welcome to speak your opinion as often as you like, dear. However, unless you are also the poster to whom I replied, I was responding to his comment, specifically. Why not let him speak for himself? He seems to have the ability to type. You know, it's not always about you, honey.

You have no stats on whether or not women are "living with someone", and you're wrong about ["less than half"] "...of all abortions are performed on women who are not married."
A site from your own PC camp says "83% unmarried". Do you need to be told that's more than half? These stats pretty much say SINGLE women.(unmarried, never married, divorced and widowed) all means single women. You have no stats on how many are "living with" a man, and guessing isn't proof. You can only go by what it states.
http://www.prochoice.org/about_abortion/facts...
"Marital Status
Most women getting abortions (83%) are unmarried; 67% have never married, and 16% are separated, divorced, or widowed.4 Married women are significantly less likely than unmarried women to resolve unintended pregnancies through abortion.6"
Bitner: "Only if the pregnant woman already has children, having given birth to them, or adopting them, is she a mother. Otherwise, she is a mother-to-be, and if she has an abortion, the "to be" will not be."
That's opinion, Toots, and not a fact. Biologically, she is a mother when pregnant, her child is in utero.
FROM YOUR LINK

"Education, Residence, and Income
----> Of the women obtaining abortions in 2000: <-----

57% had some college education;
88% were from metropolitan areas; and
57% percent were low-income.4
Marital Status
Most women getting abortions (83%) are unmarried; 67% have never married, and 16% are separated, divorced, or widowed.4 Married women are significantly less likely than unmarried women to resolve unintended pregnancies through abortion.6"

Wouldn't it have been pertinent of you to make sure you were in the current reporting period? You did not prove Bitner wrong, dolly.

She didn't even prove you wrong, Bitner. Bet she's crushed now. She showed numbers from the year 2000, not the current reporting year which is what? 2009 or 2010? I think 2009, but not positive.

You sure have a strange perspective, dolly. Of course the relation is important. It's what gives women the civil right to determine their own outcome. By determining their own outcome, they are determining the ZEF's outcome. That's a given. It doesn't deny anything.

It is your side's false premises trying to deny women their civil rights to determine their own pregnancies and the fates of their offspring. Women can morally, legally, and emotionally accept or reject pregnancy without any interference by clergy, the gov't, or nosy parkers like you.

Lynne, what's NOT RELEVANT is you trying to make the claim that any email's of yours that I'd post are lies BEFORE I EVEN POST THEM. ROFLMAO!"

Just to let the bumbling buffoon know:

It doesn't matter whose e-mails they would be. If it's a claim about ANYONE you dislike, there's no doubt you would alter any e-mail to serve your lying agenda here. That's the point you aren't intelligent enough to get. The point has nothing to do with it being specifically e-mails from Lynne. Lynne has nothing to do with my posts and all to do with yours and what you claim...and it just so happens it's your stupidity about Lynne. My posts are about YOU, not about Lynne. Your posts are all about your obsession with her.

I would say the very same things if you were obsessing about Sassy, Doc, NR etc. if you would claim proof of something they supposedly said was in e-mails with you. LOL, you're credibility with people who have integrity in discussion is non-existant. We would NOT believe you wouldn't alter ANY e-mail from ANY pro-lifer you once e-mailed with and hate now. You're a FOOL if you think otherwise.

The issue for me has never been WHO your posts, accusations, lies are about. The issue for me has always been your lies posted here on any topic, and the stupidity you use to try to prove something that's irrelevant to everything here, and which only displays your desperation to deflect from the lies you got caught in posting here. The deflections which don't prove you're telling the truth about anything.

E-mails, pics off the internet, pics of houses, people etc. ALL are POINTLESS here, no matter WHO the person is that you're trying to prove something about. Why?

Because you can't prove you didn't alter e-mails. You can't prove the pics you claim are of the people or places you claim. All you accomplish with that kind of insanity is proving you're a mental case.

You posted a pic of Stephen King's gate. What do you think you proved with that? lol I mean seriously, what do you think you proved? All you proved to everyone posting here is that you can take shit off the internet and use it as your avatar, as we all can. You're such a nutcase, you can't see reason about irrational your actions here.

Let's say you posted a pic of a house, and claim it's Lynne's house. So? What are proving by doing that? You take a pic of a house, claim it's Lynne's house and what proving you're telling the truth that it's really Lynne's house? NOTHING. What are you proving if it really would be Lynne's house? NOTHING. So what if you and she e-mailed. It still would never serve to prove that any e-mails you have from ANY pro-lifer you e-mailed with wouldn't be altered by you if you chose to post them here.

E-mails aren't proof of anything here. Rational people understand that and understand why, and none of us has to be Lynne to get that. We just need to have some sense and reason.

Hey, folks. Let's not get facts mixed up with personal morals. I understand that some of you feel that abortion is morally wrong. However, moral philosophies aren't factual evidence, either against or for abortion rights.
