By law, federal funding cannot be allocated for abortions. However, opponents argue that allocating money to Planned Parenthood for the provision of other medical services "frees up" funds to be re-allocated for abortion.

This is the problem.

Also, phone cameras have recorded numerous incidences where employees of Planned Parenthood simply ignore the law.

A bigger problem.

You're much more ignorant than you think you are. Do I care to rebut your posts kissing Doc's ass? No. I like Doc by the way so this is nothing against him. As for your other posts? You mean the long string of verbose missives that go on about the "mind boggling" ignorance and stupidity of anyone who dares to disagree with your most superior and learned opinions? The endless manifestos about the people you deem too stupid and too lacking in "comprehension skills" to be even worthy to walk in your most eminent shadow? The pages and pages of posts where you pat yourself on the back and exert your grandiose perceptions of self-importance? You want rebuttals to those posts? The very posts where you obsess endlessly over the lowly status of those ignorant members of the PC camp who in your mind clearly are not even worthy of wiping your royal ass? And then there's the petulant posts where you stomp your feet like a middle schooler and rage because people have the nerve to be friends with Foo. That is the content of your posts in a nutshell. The posts you think make you seem to superior in intelligence to everyone else, but only in your own little detestable mind, when they merely are screams for attention.
Enjoy your massive delusions of grandeur, Lynne. And yes, by now most everyone here "with any intelligence" seems to know you're the pathetic creature know as Lynn. Your pendulum has swung from one extreme to the other.
It's absolutely "mind boggling" that you still cling to this deception that you're not Lynne.
Lynne is a useful idiot for a few people here, which is the only time those on her "side" bother to respond to her - which is to use her for THEIR purpose. She's not intelligent enough to understand that.

Lynn's been a joke here for many years now. Its sad really.

Foo jumps in disagreeing that abortion would be a non-issue, and give a reason that has nothing to do with the artificial womb discussion.
Actually it had EVERYTHING to do with the artifical womb discussion.

Doc opined that an artifical womb would create an atmosphere where abortion would be a non-issue.

I pointed out FACTUALLY, that unless women CHOSE to make use of that technology, abortion would still very much still be on the table.

ALL an ALS womb would be in that scenerio, is a new option for women who were considering abortion. It wouldn't make abortion a 'non-issue'.

Doc acknowledged the point.

This really wasn't a hard discussion to follow, yet you managed to screw it up. As usual.

AGAIN, you try to twist the discussion to suit your agenda.

You falied AGAIN as well Lynne. You always do.

Now wait, Foo. Seems to me you aren't considering women with high-risk pregnancies. If I were to get pregnant again, it may kill me. Therefore, I'd opt out of it. Unless there was an artificial womb available to gestate for me.
When I first read your links on artificial wombs, this is where my thinking was because of my own experiences. How cool it would be for women to actually have their natural children without the fatal risks some pregnancies bring (ie, high blood pressure, cardiac, stroke, etc).
Artificial wombs? I feel like we're talking about a sci-fi movie and everyone instinctively knows it won't have a good ending.

The farther away we go from nature and the natural order of things, the closer we get to screwing things up.

How do you feel about "custom-ordered" babies? Eye color, gender, hair color, etc.

Or sperm banks where someone could end up marrying a half-sister or half-brother from the same sperm donor?

Are we really becoming this shallow and self-serving?

I have seen spontaneous abortion in a drawn-out process and I've seen an ectopic pregnancy burst even as the medical professional were insisting a blood clot was the embryo. Do you count those? I do.

That's a choice each individual has to make.

However, the overwhelming majority of abortions are healthy developing fetuses who happen to be an inconvenience when the inconvenience should have been taking the necessary precautions to avoid creating that life in the first place.

Am I wrong?

You seem to think so.

I don't think we should be making designer babies like dolls.

I was talking about real high-risk pregnancy. The kind that actually kills women when they're wanting to be pregnant. Artificial wombs and artificial surfactant ARE currently being tweaked in science labs. Foo recently posted a couple links regarding it.

There are also real fetal brain scans online for viewing -- to show the brain development in progress.

Who needs fiction when reality is available?

Nah, that would imply she gives a shit about anyone BUT herself. Of course, I could see her screaming to those women that didn't like the colors she KNOWS they want!

Yes, it does. And it's against the law.

However, Obama, as we are all learning, is above the law. Power-craving politicians who support him don't seem to care either.

It's why I say we'd all better wise up before it's too late.

Governments who give also take away.

Spontaneous abortions and ectopic pregnancies are nature taking its natural course for whatever reason.

Voluntary abortions and knowing exactly what that looks like is different.

That's K&P's (knit and prays) job. She's been knitting baby booties for preemies for years now. Well, when she's not posting demon porn, anyway.

Prove it or stop lying about it.
They do provide some counseling and contraceptive pills and condoms but, for the most part, they are in the business of abortions..
Since only 3% of their business is abortion, you'd be wrong.

Nope. And neither have you.

It wouldn't change my mind about educating women and allowing them to make their OWN choice anyway.

I haven't seen an actual mastectomy or aortic dissection either, and that wouldn't change my mind on those issues either.

So what's your take on the founder of Lila Rose also having ties with Maximus and Gerard Health Foundation?

Wouldn't that be more alarming than the Affordable Health Care Act?

That of course would be one of the options that opens up to people. But as was my point, it wouldn't ELIMINATE the need for abortion, nor would it make abortion a non-issue, y'know?

What I said to Doc, was said ONLY about the concept that artifical wombs would make abortion a non-issue.

Can you imagine how much this technology would COST? It boggles the mind...

ROFLMAO! No the bigger problem are stupid extremists that try to use cropped togehter footage to suit their agenda. The LEGITIMATE cases are being prosecuted. Does it happen? Sometimes I'm sure, but its not the big problem you and your kind claim it is.

Actually the more your kind try to interfere in others personal medical decisions the more YOU screw things up. Usually for yourselves.
How do you feel about "custom-ordered" babies? Eye color, gender, hair color, etc.
I'm all for genetic manipulation for the elimination of disorders and diseases. On a genetic level, I have no problem with it. Just as I have no issue with abortion because of genetic disorders and diseases. People aren't custom ordering babies. Now THAT is science fiction. Funny how you dont have a problem with that garbage huh?
Or sperm banks where someone could end up marrying a half-sister or half-brother from the same sperm donor?
ROFLMAOOOOOOOOOO!!! Sperm banks have been around for decades, and its never been an issue yet with literally hundreds of thousands of babies born with the help of them.

Grow up.
