"Good I hope they can get the numbers down below 3000 a day. I am starting to understand the world "you guys " live in, but believe it or not there are many people in the world that view the aborting of a human for just any reason as a horrible thing."
Everyone is entitled to their opinions. Including those who disagree with yours. They are not, however, obligated to live according to yours.
"There are people in other parts of the world who also would view it as a horrible thing. It is not just a medical desicion, it is the ending of a life."
However, whether or not to remain pregnant IS a medical decision. One that each and every pregnant woman has the right to make for themselves.
"Others in other parts of the world have never heard of evolution, and yet they even know that there is a big difference in a man (person) and a monkey."
Evolution doesn't say we're monkeys. This is what we mean when we speak of your ignorance on the subject.
"Abortion is even against evolution."
Of course it's not.
"If you haven't noticed the ones that are sold out for abortion, are those who have either had one, or someone they love has had on."
No one here is "sold out for abortion". And guess what? I've neither had an abortion, nor has anyone I love. Enough with the baseless broad brush statements.
"If you didn't notice, there was a lady "who had had an abortion, who came on here, and was shreded by foo and her pals "."
I doubt any attack was unprovoked. Likely, they thought she was someone lying, at the very least.
"You think I'm a troll? Sometimes I read many post, and wonder if it is not the same person under difderent names."
Really, me too. On your side.
"I still don't know for the life of me how a woman could be ok with abortion? Even enough to send money to a place like planned parenthood."
We are "okay" with a woman making her own choice. I've never seen anyone on here say they are "okay" with abortion. We know that our personal opinions on it aren't relevant.
"I really thought women loved and protected babies."
I'd say most do. Of course, Caylee Anthony could have told you different, huh? Still, we're not talking about babies.
"When I cheated on my wife over 12 years ago, it caused much harm and left scars that are, and always will be, but I don't send money to the co. On tv, that has advertisements for adultery."
There is no such company, you Moron. When you have to make shit up to make your point, you've already lost the argument.
"I'm thankful for Gods forgiveness and the forgiveness of my wife.
Foo called my wife an idiot, sto, with his filthy mouth calls me a liar, and you said I was foul for defending myself. Granted I really shouldn't let these people bother me, but I'm still looking for just one pro choice who can be real about why they think abortion as is today is ok. It can't just be becouse its legal, since we all know many things have been legal that was no where near right."
We have explained many times why we are pro-choice. You just ignore it.
I think the company is called Ashley Madison,becouse I know I've seen commercials on tv about them, and they advocate extramarital affairs, so if you want you can check them out, and if I'm right about them and you're wrong "which I think you are ",then you may question whether or not, that you may just be wrong about other things?

If you don't want to be called a liar, stop lying. It is that simple.
There are over 4 million live births annually in the USA.
There are just under 800K annual abortions in the USA.
These numbers are not bad as numbers go. If you want to attach a teeny tiny little baby to each and every one, go for it. It's emotional manipulation on your part, but this is a free country.
Over 98% of annual abortions are done during the 7th and 8th gestational week. On an embryo. An embryo does not equal a baby.
Women all across the world have had or performed abortions. Since as long as there has been pregnancy, there has been abortion.
The real question is this: Do you want abortion hidden in back alleys without sterile equipment used by someone who may or may not have the proper training? If so, then that shows how much you disrespect women.
Nobody can prove God hates abortion or that God hasn't willed for that abortion to happen for reasons only He knows. Abortion and miscarriage are the same. One is by the body, one by the mind. Body and mind belong to one pregnant woman at a time.
No one knows what the punishment is for killing a baby.

And I'd like to add that I'm sick of these arrogant anti-choice men who forget that it is in fact the males (who got some young girl/woman pregnant) who can, and do, walk away and continue to enjoy their freedom and can go on to college and fulfill what they want to do with their life while their former girlfriend is the one stuck trying to raise a child and will often end up in poverty. The women are the ones stuck trying to figure out how they'll even hold some job when they need someone to watch their child.
So ignoramuses like Doc, Tom Tom, Gtown and all the other ant-choice males on here can continue to pontificate on the legality or morality of abortion while they remain blissfully clueless about the reality of the hardships of single motherhood.
These male buffoons will never face the physical difficulties of a pregnancy/delivery and they will never know what it's like to be an uneducated single mother trying to raise a kid on either welfare or some kind of part time minimum wage job.
And yes, there are success stories of single mothers becoming educated and successful, but many of them were lucky enough to have family support while so many other single mothers are truly on their own...especially after being abandoned by some cowardly male who was just using his penis as some kind of sexual divining rod.
Bravo! I couldn't agree more. These anti-choice guys are all for forcing girls to stay pregnant and give birth against their will. Helping teen moms get money to feed their children AFTER they're born? Not so much.

True story Ocean. Last year Cody, my 15 year old nephew had his first girlfriend. Good christian girl, she was 12 at the time. He posted it on Facebook that he was now in a relationship. His step mom who lives in NY with his bio dad told Cody she would supply the condoms if he needed them!
YIKES. That situation sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. I think teen sex is still a BAD IDEA, whether the teen guy has condoms or not.

I hope the girl had the sense to tell your nephew to FORGET about having sex for the next few years.

"Women say they want equal rights, but they really want special rights."
In what way? Men working outside the home can do whatever work they want. They can be professionals like doctors or accountants, or tradesmen..anything. The woman in the home gets few choices, if any. Cleaning and cooking. Women who want more than that out of life are looking for "special rights"? It might be the other way around.
Exactly. This is the same kind of 19th century "woman's sphere" ideology that men used to keep women CONFINED (I would say IMPRISONED) to their homes. Just as I suspected, Gtown's "thinking" is STUCK IN THE PAST, by at least two centuries.

Any guy who thinks women should be nothing more than a man's unpaid housekeeper and more is a guy women should RUN from.

One that will be worth its weight on paper does.
Who's in charge? The husband, the wife? Both? The kids?
What if factories had no one in charge?
Same as a home, someone must have the final say, and that choice should be made for the betterment of the family.
It is the only way it will work well, becouse men and women are different -other then physical.
When a husband and wife disagrees on a decision that must be made, then what does one do?
Ah, just as I thought, you favor DICTATORSHIP in marriage rather than a husband-and-wife equal partnership. Got it.@@

That's just the kind of toxic marital arrangement that I made it a priority to AVOID. Why any woman would WANT that kind of marriage is beyond me, but luckily, that's not MY lot to endure.

Now tell me that Sharia Law is good for woman. It teaches that woman are less than the animals you own.
Very true, Sharia Law is NOT good for women in the least. But conservative religions don't treat women well either, a fact that conservative Christians like to ignore. For the "christian" extremists who think that girls and women were well treated in past American history, I think it's time for a little reminder of some facts you probably don't want to see mentioned on a public forum. Too bad. The fact is, we had an American version of Sharia Law in the 19th century. At the beginning of the 19th century in America --

-- Girls got much less education than boys did.

-- Girls' activities, especially for middle- and upper-class girls, were limited to "ladylike" pursuits.

-- Girls and women were considered naturally weaker and inferior to boys and men.

-- It was thought shocking, outrageous, and even scandalous for a woman to give a speech in public, especially to audiences of both men and women.

-- Middle- and upper-class women were expected to confine their activities to a "separate sphere" or their homes. Women were also expected to show the "virtues" of religious piety, wifely submission, and motherly domesticity. And they always had to be escorted outside their homes by a man.

-- Married women had NO legal rights, including to own property, keep their inherited money, enter into contracts, sign legal documents, or control what happened to their wages or their children.

-- Women who were single or had to earn money had very few job opportunities and were always paid less than men who did the same job.

-- Middle- and upper-class women were expected to wear layers of restrictive and heavy clothing, and corsets that were so tight that many women suffered serious health problems as a result.

-- Almost a million African women were chattel slaves.

-- Women were not allowed to vote.

-- Married women had no choices over their reproductive process. Any woman who got married was expected to produce children, whether she WANTED to be a mother or not.

In addition to the above, as if that weren't oppressive enough, conservative men of the 19th and early 20th century opposed every measure that improved women's lives, especially a woman's right to vote. THAT'S what the 19th century feminists fought so hard to change, and eventually succeeded in doing so, even though it took 72 years, from 1848 to 1920, to achieve that goal. The shame was that it took that long for women to GET that right to vote in the first place.

Housekeeping isn't of any ECONOMIC value because the women doing it aren't getting PAID for doing so. The exceptions to that are the women who belong to a professional housecleaning service and get PAID to do housework for the women (or men) who hire them.

See the difference?

Apparently not, since you're NOT the one that remained faithful to your spouse.

You were the one "playing house" dear.

I find it funny as hell that YOU are the one that couldn't honor your vows made before G-d, yet you will try to excuse that by insulting everyone else who did.

I realize you think my way of thinking is a pic of a big bearded man dressed like a viking who rules his family with an iron fist, but you would be wrong.
My wife and I are one. We believe in a God who says the man is to rule His house with Godly wisdom.
The man is to give himself up for his wife, as Christ gave Himself up for His bride the church.
We to work together on any and all issues, and if we reach a point where we just don't know, then my wife chooses to let me choose what we should do.
Just like this last presidential election.
We were torn on who to vote for.
Obama was a no brainer for us, becouse of his stance on gay marriage and abortion, and just about all other issues.
Romney was a morman, and we did not want morman to be in the American spotlight, even though we knew it would be between obama or Romney.
Yes there were more running, but history shows that "most " people are cookie cutters and either vote D or R.
We vote according to the person running and their values.

Well that is how God says women were created. Atleast eve came from adams rib.
Of course to us that may sound weird, but just knowing how babies form and are in the womb, for so long, then they take their first breath,is kinda weird.
Plus lets take a look at evolution? It teaches us that women "men, and every thing came from...... A rock! Slim covered rock.
I geuss that makes God's version not seem so crazy after all.
Both take faith.
Evolution takes even more faith.
Evolution does not teach us that we came from slime off a rock.
