Your opinion.
Abortion kills the woman child/flesh and blood while developing in the womb. That in itself is a tragedy when a mom could have her child killed as choice because he doesnt want him/her. It' evil. It therefore has a GREAT effect and harm on society. There are many side effect to the woman state of mental and emotional health aswell as her physical health,that don't seem to concern you.
BTW....marijuana has become legal,so I suppose they aren't a harmful as you think they are? Of course it is -legal or not. Alcohol is legal as well,and I suppoe that doesn't have a harmful impact on society,in your mind?

As you so eloquently stated my darling "Sassafrass..." "Your Opinion."

Yes, we're all aware that your system of beliefs considers this to be an act of "supreme evil" but, as per the structure of our society, our legal system and constitutional rights, you are, unfortunately--for you--unable to force those of us who don't happen to subscribe to your system of beliefs to live by them--yet.
BTW, the "legalization" of marijuana is a state-by-state affair to date, as is the "legalization" of SSM. Yeah the Federal Government can step in at any time and decide that this is "illegal" as per Federal Law.
As a poster who's perceived as a "Conservative Christian," who presumably wants fewer governmental intrusions in her life, which would you prefer;
1. A Federal ban on abortion?
2. A Federal ban on marijuana?
*3. A Federal/Constitutional ban on Same Sex Marriage?
4. A Federal ban on "Religious Impositions--including Sharia Law?"
5. No Federal authority granted to any of the above?

*The only reason I deemed it necessary to include "Constitutional" to choice #3 was because of the "DOMA," which sought to define--by way of the U.S. constitution--marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

You think these 3000 women you claim who do not wish to be pregnant will suddenly wish to be because you limit their choice?
You want to limit choice and consider it caring?
You want women to bear unwanted pregnancies and consider that caring about women?
How does allowing choice equate to a power trip?
How does disallowing choice by law do to an archaic misogynistic belief system equate to a non-power trip?
If your beliefs only effect you why do you pound so many ears with your beliefs? What exactly are you trying to accomplish?
Sorry, you are not making any sense.
It seems to me, that we all tell our beliefs everyday here, so what makes yours more important?

Aka says abortion has no neg side effects, but one only need to look at the name of this thread to know better.

My point is you and others say you stand for choice, but have no problem when no one really had a choice in the very important matter of legalized abortion.

Perhaps we should focus on those, instead of removing women's civil right to self defense, in an effort to reduce the number of abortions.
<quoted text>I believe you're projecting your own desire to make women powerless to control our reproductive function, by law.
Many reasons a pregnancy can make life tough, so they shouldn't get pregnant.

ALL RvW did was allow selfish women to not care about anyone but themselves. Their priorities are ME ME ME and kill their baby if they are unwanted.
Women need to empower themselves with some self control. Stop allowing themselves to be used for sex as single women. Seem like MOST abortions are done on single women after being used. Take a look at the single mothers raising their children with no man present. It's really sad that women don't respect themselves e&#326;ough to be used.
But,you don't seem to care about that as long as they can kill their unwanted child. Does it make you feel powerful to be able to end your childs life?
You have the equal right. Do you feel powerful?

Every woman should have the equal right to make a choice for herself involving her medical/surgical needs and because she is a woman and the only one who can get pregnant, that includes terminating her pregnancy. I propose this Gtown. Since it takes two to tango the man that impregnates a woman that doesn't want to be pregnant but can't get a safe abortion, he should be castrated. Now how many males do you think would grab their nuts and say "uh uh, these are my family jewels..........government and society has no right to make this legal.

You bet? How much? I may take that bet and double it.

When abortion was illegal how many back alley abortion do you think were performed?

Consequences of their actions? Here we go again......Abortion IS dealing with the consequences of two peoples actions. The problem is you want physical punishment for ONE.

ALL PL does is wish to enforce their archaic misogynistic beliefs on women/girls and reduce the to brood mares. Their priorities are ME ME ME AND MY RELIGION AND MT MISOGYNISTIC MYTHOLOGICAL GOD. Their priorities would be dismissed by religious fanatics who consider themselves above ALL and above individual freedom and liberty. Who consider themselves in the "know" of each and every womans circumstances which they dismiss and instead inject their own RELIGIOUS beliefs to their OWN satisfaction. Want to discuss selfishness some more Assy?

""Seem like MOST abortions are done on single women after being used. ""

Many many married women have abortions for many reasons. Would you ignore them and just apply your punishment to single women?

"""Take a look at the single mothers raising their children with no man present. It's really sad that women don't respect themselves e&#326;ough to be used."""

Now you are criticizing women/girls WHO DO carry their pregnancy AND raise the kids!!!!!!!!!! What a COMPLETE FREAK YOU ARE!! YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM YOU PRETEND TO CARE SO FCKING MUCH ABOUT....IDIOT!!!

I have also taken a look at single mothers, MANY DIVORCED single mothers busting their ass.

I had an abortion and YES I was glad I was able to have one without the interference of an idiot like you. BY THE WAY...I was married and in my 40's. Power had nothing to do with it, medical had everything to do with it.

Do you feel empowered at the gynecologists office??

Yes, Morgana,it is what we Mothers do-put their child first and protect that child. We owe it to our children. If we for some reason can't "mother" that child,then we adopt that child out,not kill them like proaborts do or people like Susan Smith or Casey Anthony.
Says who? Who says that a pregnancy must be carried and has rights over a woman/girl? Who says this?

From what moment?

If for some reason we can't mother we have CHOICES from the moment...and through the first trimester. Susan Smith or Casey Anthony made their choice to give birth and became murderers. End of story.

and unsubstantiated.

"There are many side effect to the woman state of mental and emotional health aswell as her physical health,that don't seem to concern you."

Now, what impact does forced gestation and motherhood have on women?

Or maybe that doesn't seem to concern you?

In your opinion.

A woman has no obligation to put an embryo, or zygote before herself...and the Supreme Court seems to agree, so you stand corrected.

Hello G.

I hope all is well with Foo, too. And any of the others who have been absent for awhile.

G, I was at my local Walgreen's yesterday and they also had a sign stating the store would be open 24 hours on Thanksgiving day. 24 hours!!

Methinks eventually Thanksgiving will go the way of the dinosaurs.

If you are interested, Time.com has a plethora of stories and opinion articles on the whole subject. According to one article (heavy on stats) Black Friday is dying a slow death because of the stores being open on T-day and the Christmas sales starting earlier and earlier.

Ha! Retailers are killing their own "holiday"!!

While many others are wearing their credit cards thin I'm going to be on the trails running my dinner off.

Have a peaceful Sunday, G.

You failed to answer any of the questions.

I am referring to your religious beliefs which boiled down are misogynistic.

What are you talking about no one had a choice in the matter of legalized abortion? Explain yourself. You are not making sense.

Yeah? What "consequences" did you have? You're still married, correct? You now have a son you have a relationship with, correct? So, what "consequences" are you talking about?

And you didn't answer my other question from last night.

How, exactly, would wanting each and every woman to be free to make her own choice regarding her own uterus and pregnancy, based upon her own circumstances and moral code, be wanting "power over women"?

By the way, I have yet to see anyone here have a problem with the word "consequences", just with the narrow definition of what that entails insisted on by YOUR side.

Not according to us. According to history, abortion has been around as long as pregnancy has been around, spontaneous and induced. But what has THAT fact got to do with anything?
