She gave her opinion and experience.
Yes, she did. And I countered that by replying there are women who DON'T regret having an abortion and gave the site address where some of their stories could be read.

If YOU have a problem with that, too bad.

I'm only a big christian, becouse of my size, but have yet to lie on this thread. I did however get all of my info off of the mike Huckabee show yesterday.
He is a govenor "not that "they " don't lie ", but he is also a national radio show host, which anything he says can be verified. I do normaly agree with looking into what people say, but chose not to on this. So far no one has stated anything contrary to what he has.
When abortion is left up to the doctor and the womans "health ", it leaves much wiggle room.
Loopholes, to condone late term abortion.
He spoke how if a woman was stressed or depressed that they could have an abortion up to, just before giving birth.
He then played a audio clip of a guy telling a news reporter how "he thanked god " for abortion. Stating how he was in a relationship when his girlfriend got pregnant, and how he just knew that she wasn't 'the one " for him.
He talked her into having an abortion, then left her. He now is married with kids, and said how he thanked god for legal abortion for when he needed help.
Huckabee, then stated how insane the comments were.
Basicaly the guy was using the woman for sex "and then killed the baby, becouse it was good for him.
He also stated "which I to believe ",how abortion is used to fix temporary problems.
Instant gradification, is what this country has become.
You may hear what all he said -I have no reason to believe he would lie on national radio about such bill.
It is nothing more, than a smokescreen to have at will abortion.
Mike Huckabee pardoned a lifer who eventually came to my state. Three years ago this lifer shot and killed 4 cops who were in a coffee house. Mike Huckabee is not anyone with any credibility.

Besides, I read the bill, too. It is updating and correcting bad law. It has moved abortion out of penal law so that women and their doctors remain protected. There was no mention of later term abortion other than to say when viability would be determined, who was legally allowed to determine it, etc. It did say, as all these always say. there is an exception for life and health of the pregnant woman. Some of you get so bogged down in the meaning of mental health for the woman. It's as if you believe women 8 1/2 months pregnant wake up some days and decide NOT to follow through with delivery. Never mind they've already preregistered at the hospital, already have most of what they need for bringing home newborn, etc.

You guys get spoon fed a bunch of crap from a guy with zero to little credibility and you eat it up because he's a former governor??

Now THAT's funny, G, since I put Mike Huckabee in the same category as that right-wing idiot Rush Limbaugh when it comes to credibility. Both of them have ZERO credibility as far as I'M concerned.

May I ask how she has helped you see abortion in a different light?
I'm not anywhere near the closed minded religous bigot they claim, and I to can see why someone would seek abortion.
I also know you can't judge someone unless you've walked in their shoes.
My thing is with the numbers of abortions being done, and the number that accounts for rape or incest being very few in comparison with the number of abortions being done daily.
I only know of one woman who has had an abortion, she was my bosses live in girlfriend, when I was 14 or 15 years old.
I worked at a sonic drive in "yes foo foo I was to young and even recieved a check from dept of labor ",but I remeber her and him comming back from new orleans, as they made a little vacation out of their abortion trip. She was telling me about having an abortion and laughing, saying how she wished she could have them more often, becouse of the gas they give you to breath in.
I wasn't against abortion then, but still thought she was just joking in a bad way about it.
Looking back though, who knows how she really felt, since I know very well how some use laughter to deal with pain.
I can't get foo foo to settle down enough to have a decent convo with me, and perhaps we got off on the wrong foot, but right now its nothing worth reading from either one of us.
A few thoughts come to mind-

1) Foo has not changed my mind about abortion. I am as anti-abortion now as I was when I started posting.

2) Argueing abortion based on religion will get you nowhere. There are many relious beliefs and they are each important to the people who hold them.

3) When you make a statement, back it up, or say that it is your opinion.

4) Probably the most important thing that Foo has taught me is that just because someone supports abortion rights, that doesn't make them a bad person.

5) Another, and equally important, thing is that posting your objection on a forum doesn't cut it if you don't put your words into action.

6) Prolifers, in many cases, are their own worst enemy.

Now, all this being said, "Twister" is a favorite word game that is played by both sides on here.

I’ve read every comment on this page. And I cried the whole time. I’m so thankful I’m not alone.

I wanted to get pregnant, we tried for six months and I cried every month when I wasn’t. I loved my pregnancy and was so excited. Then he was born. I spent the entire first night at the hospital crying, and seven months later I still cry nearly every day.

No one told me that the second he was born, I would become the least important person in the world. That I wouldn’t have an identity anymore. All I do is feed, change, play, rock. He won’t even let me leave the room without crying. My husband works non stop and hes never home and when he is all of our time is taken up by the baby. I miss him so much, I can’t remember the last time we got to have some alone time. Imiss my old life, the things I used to do. Now I can barely find time to eat or shower. I look horrible all the time, my hair is a mess ad my clothes are dirty and I just can’t do this.

I wish I had known what it would be like. I have severe stomach pain from stress and not eating or sleeping enough. I want to kill myself or run away. I love my son but I hate my life every day. I can’t do it anymore.

Sure you have, LIAR. You LIED about me being a bad mother simply because you didn't like my bringing up the HARDSHIPS of motherhood. You offered a lame "apology" for lying about it, but it doesn't change the fact that you DID lie when it suited your purpose. Nice try, but it doesn't fly.
Ok ocean, believe as you will. I said you were a bad mother in a sweeping statement, about what makes a bad mother. You may pull it up if you even know where it is, since I said I was sorry about making the statement a day or two after making it, and when you had not even noticed it, so if bringing up a comment that I felt was in bad taste, and apologizing for it makes me a liar, then so be it. Plus I have lied many times in my life before I wss saved.
Have you ever lied?

As far as mike H. I don't know him very well, but started listening to him a couple weeks ago. Sure my comments may be far right on what would take place, but are yours not far left?

I believe all comments made are valid, and should be made, even if it is not mainstream.

Plus you can't prove that any of what I stated (from Mike H) will not happen, if this bill is passed.

I realize abortion is not the norm 8 months into pregnancy, but it has happened.
I believe if these kind of bills are passed, it will only open the door for more in the future.

I hate to here that about him,and sorry for what the man did.
That seems to be the thing govenors do as they leave their post, and I'm not sure why or how they have such power.

Haily Barbor, who just left ms let a lifer go free, after only a few months in prison. It seems the inmate was a "worker " at mr. Barbers place.

He was in prison for killing his wife, in front of their daughter.

Some bills, laws, or acts do need passing.
I also realize it is not the norm for a 8 month pregnant woman to abort, but are you saying the mike H flat out lied about it, or could it happen if this bill is passed?

As far as us swallowing whatever gets pumped our way, that is true, but on both sides.

Ocean acts as if she wants young women to be informed of All their choices and info about abortion and pregnancy, but it is clear to see how she handles any who oppose her view.

I assume you have not argued abortion based on religion, and where has that got you?

There must be a reason you are anti -abortion.

I was for abortion, untill my life changing experience with God.

It seems many want good 'christians " to only speak about the love and forgiveness of God, and any negative comments make them a bad christian.

If the rich young ruler went to most any "church " in the US and asked (what must I do to have eternal life) they would tell him abc repeat after me, and you're saved. Then they would make him a deacon or preacher.

What did Jesus tell him?

I never expect anyone to read what I say and turn around and say "I see the light, thanks",but some ground is harder to sow on.

I mess up alot, and regret saying certain things, but not afraid to admit when I'm wrong.

I believe we are getting used to the dark, and things like abortion where millions of babies are being killed at will, just almost shuts down the mind.

Perhaps we will look back one day, and wonder "what were we thinking "

Especially when sooo many thank God for abortion.

Atleast that is my opinion.

Personally, I am very grateful for the availability of reliable contraception, which has kept me pregnancy-FREE the last 15+ years. I so love NOT being pregnant.

Yes, G, I responded to "Marianne's" post by saying that simply because SHE regretted having an abortion, it doesn't mean that all women "should" or "must" feel the same way. Obviously, you have a problem with that. Too bad.

The fact remains that there are women who DON'T regret having an abortion at all. They only regret GETTING pregnant in the first place.

I will admit tbat what I wish to say, and what I say can be two different things, but why would you not want to know the will of God?

I'm nothing special at all, just a man.
Jesus said "that ye may know ", so what is wrong with knowing?

I know that I am saved. I know just as sure as I know I am married.

My fault is letting someones attacking comment, cause me to attack them, for that I am sorry, and feel free to call me on it anytime.

There are some absolutes in this world.

Man can and does mess things up, but God can even use our mess.

I've seen many comments on FB about how God loves to take our mess and turn it into a message.

How he loves to take broken things and fix them.

I am just thankful, that God loves broken things.

True, I have no life experience and I am speculating like crazy.
Proof? It's called listening, reading and seeing. Kids want to stay with their original family. They want the same mother and father. Not some bimbo the father found at the local bar. I feel for these kids who end up with a stranger for a step parent. Doesn't work.
Did you have a bitter divorce? Is that it?
Disney movie? Don't get the connection.
Bitter?

Not at all. In fact, YOU are the one who sounds bitter here, about stepmothers.

No, no "bitter divorce". I was widowed, not that it's any of your business. My husband is a wonderful stepfather, and I am a stepmother. Our combined family is very happy.

You're ASSuming a "bimbo", huh? That says more about you than it does about stepmothers, you ass.

You never saw a Disney movie as a kid? That say much about you as well.

Yeah, G, I responded by telling such posters that NOT all women regret having an abortion. Why you have such an issue with that is beyond me.

I also think it's a good idea to challenge the anti-choice myth that "mothers never regret having their children." There are quite a few sad stories from women who REGRET becoming mothers as well. Stories like this one, for example.

I really never thought motherhood would be like this. I was always hesitant about having children because I know I can be on the selfish side. I dont think I would have regrets if I had a normal baby! I ended up having a child that had severe colic, and acid reflux, and is VERY high maintenance!

I decided to be a stay at home mom when the nanny I had lined up fell through and daycare wasn't something my husband and I wanted for our child. It has been 6 months and I’m beginning to regret becoming a mom. She doesn't sleep, she eats every 1.5-2 hours (breastfed). She’s not gaining weight like she should. Some days I just feel like a total failure at life and being a mother!

My sister had a baby a couple months ago and he sleeps, and is happy overall. He has caught up to my daughter in weight also!! I know i shouldn't compare but its hard not to! Why did she luck out with a mellow happy baby?!

My mother in law has become a MONSTER IN LAW! Her true colors are shining through and she is overbearing, manipulative, boundary stomping bitch! She absolutely lived only for her two boys and has empty nest syndrome and is trying to transfer her CRAZY to my daughter! She acts like my daughter is HER daughter, and keeps buying baby furniture for her house piece by piece, like my daughter is going to live with her!!! Ugh I really hate her and hate that I have to see her more now that I’ve had a baby. I didn't like her before and definitely dont like her now!!!

I think if I could just take a vacation from being a mom every couple weeks I would feel a lot better about myself and my daughter!! I know its not my daughters fault and I feel so guilty sometimes for feeling this way. Its just nice to know I’m not alone!!

I'm happy for you ocean, but notice what you just wrote about contraceptives when it suited your need? Sorry YOUR need. Lol
And you speak about how it fails often and the need for abortion is there?

Why would a woman who have had kids and not want any more not be "fixed "?

It seems that would be a better alternative to having an abortion.

And my writing about contraceptives would be a problem for you...WHY, exactly?

As to a woman having a tubal ligation or not, that is also a PERSONAL choice. There are doctors who refuse to perform a tubal ligation, especially on young women, even if they have already had children and don't want any more. So getting "fixed" isn't as easy as you would have everyone believe.

Gotta jet. Have a nice day.
