Skanky, your question is both inane and stupid. You are suggesting that you and any one else should be involved in each and every medical decision a woman makes for her pregnancy.
You question also opens up the the idea that we all should be there and second guess each of the doctors medical advice and expertise.
But that is what you antichoice little fools really want is a foot in the door to dictate to doctors, and their patients, how and the way a pregnancy should proceed.
Thank The Goddesses and The Gods that we have HIPAA and Roe v Wade to keep fools, like you, away from interfering with a woman pregnancy and her medical provider.
These idiots seem to think of being "pro-choice" as pertaining ONLY to pregnancy.

Nobody who supports another persons freedom to make their own choices (within the law) is endorsing any of the actual choices. That is relevant to any aspect of out lives. I'm an atheist and do not believe in God or have any use for religion, but I support their *freedom* to choose for themselves what they believe or their desire to follow a religion. I support their freedom to speak their opinions but I don't agree with anything they actually say.

Why is that so hard for these people to understand?

I lived because skilled doctors gave my body a chance to heal. I'm damned hard to kill. No god had anything to do with it.

I'd point out the flaws in your logic, but you have no logic. A manufactured product has nothing to do with a doctor's duty to his patient.

Truth be told, it's womankind that procreates. It seems a man isn't even necessary for procreation.

No, it wasn't--it was considered a state's issue under the 10th amendment. If it were constitutional, it would have to be legal in all states, and it never was.

<quoted text> If a pregnant woman had a scheduled c-section for January 2, would you support her choice to electively abort on January 1?.
I think most would be just fine with letting the doc, that was planning to do the c- section on Jan 2, if he would, then he could just do the abortion himself.

Sad.

Oh PLEASE. It has EVERYTHING to do with wanting to control women; specifically, a woman's right to decide whether or not to continue a pregnancy, whether you admit that or not. You're obviously pissed that a woman can choose to get an abortion simply because she DOESN'T want to be pregnant. Too bad, pal.
Motherhood is still OPTIONAL, not required, even if a pregnancy happens. If it isn't YOUR pregnancy, it isn't your decision, simple as that.
You say motherhood is an option, so IF the laws were extended for a woman to take her child to the doc, and have them aborted, up to age 12 would you be ok, if a woman took her 11 year old, and legaly had them aborted?

Of course they did--it's done with virtually all pneumonia cases regardless of gender or orientation. And, like every other test I've had--every three to six months since they became available--it was negative.

BTW--they had no idea if I was gay or straight.

So the fetus's autonomy ends where the woman's body begins? Duly noted.

Both statements are a matter of OPINION, not fact. I'm a parent, and I have NO problem saying that it is VERY hard to raise kids, for the reasons I have already stated. If you have issues with my saying that, too bad.
No mam, you've stated many times how upset it makes you, when young girls are only told the joys of motherhood, and how they should be told ALL of the facts. You then turn around and spew out all and any negative thing you can come up with, about having and raising a baby. How many people would take prescription meds, if all they have been told is the negative side effects?
some women are more compassionate with their kids then others (usualy comes from how much love and commpassion they were shown as kids), you clearly don't seem to have much commpassion for kids, and more of a mechanical type of mother.
Like owning dogs, anyone can throw out some food and water, but the dog is much happier, if you pet him ever so often. You are a person that seems to have to be in control all times.

I'm sorry if you were fed, but not loved enough, but that doesn't happen in all homes.
I left my home at age 16, and have been gone ever since, but my daughter and wife are loved greatly, and never controled by me in anyway. If any one gets controled it is me, and happy to do it :)

"I think..." Obviously, you don't. If the fetus is ready to be removed in a caesarean, then it is past the point of being aborted electively.

It's really difficult for legs to be open-minded or any other form of mindedness.

Yes, but the Constitution PROTECTED the state's right to have slavery. They were considered property and therefore the right for an owner of that slave to do whatever he wanted with that slave as long as it wasn't torture or murder. Slave owner's right, woman's right? See any relation here? It sounds like you're against Roe V Wade because that goes AGAINST the 10th Amendment because states cannot interfere with the 1st trimester under any circumstances. It's a federal policy. BEFORE Roe V Wade STATES could decide the issue of abortion, not the federal government. So my guess is you disagree with the court's decision, Roe V Wade and it should be left to the states?

Preventative measures are not laws dumbass. They are suggestions and the main reason why many follow then, when they regard medical treatment, is surmised in two words; medical insurance.

Providing that other body has the same rights as mine. A fetus does no, and will never have, the same rights as the mother.
