Yeah....the compassion of billionaires. You low paid employees should support each other....we billionaires are strapped for cash.
The only people who can stop this insanity is us. Boycott the holidays. Find creative ways of celebrating, I know I am, simply to stick it to them :)

Yes, when I have time I'll tell you all about it, since I know many here want to hear it again :)
The deal is having an abortion wouldn't fix my problems no more then it fixes the problem's with those who have them now.
To me, and this is a sad attempt at explaining, but abortion for many, is the same as a guy who has drug issues and causes many issues, but instead of telling him it's time to really look at his life, and what he's doing, we tell him no big deal, all is legally good, so keep on trucking.
I was the only one who said the child should be kept, instead of aborted, but I can only give credit to God for that, since I had just got saved, and before that I to was for abortion.
People can legally do many things, from abortion to divorce, only to find themselves needing another divorce, or abortion later on.
It's simple to me "now" -we are sinful, and although there may be things you may have never done or thought, there's still plenty you have done or thought, that others find very offensive.
It's not about being religious, it's about a personal knowledge, and relationship with our creator that makes a difference, not only here but for eternity)
Let me tell you something...abortion would not fix YOUR problem because you do not carry the pregnancy nor do you carry any medical risk. YOU have nothing to worry about...nothing. Abortion fixes many problems for those who have medical issues, for those who have been raped, for those who are incapable of raising a child on their own, for those who will struggle through life with no support systems or help. WHO are YOU to say? YOU will never be in those POSITIONS. AND you really don't care about those who are in those positions. YOU feel that YOUR religious beliefs should trump all.

Ask the mistress. She obviously didn't want to get pregnant.

It seems we are our worst enemies.
I remember when many /most stores were closed on Sunday, but no longer. I talked to the owner of a large groc. Store, and he started opening on sun about 15 years ago. He said he had to, since other stores did near his, but again if those stores were closed, people would buy more on mon. Plus people could spend more time with family, but honestly I'm not sure many people even care anymore, as long as they can buy what they want, when they want :(
The auto parts store thingy is truly sad to me. I'm sure the folks that work there hate that sign they see everday.
Autozone closed early one time for a holiday, but I can't remember which one. It was one hour early, and the guy inside said he would just like them to come slap his face instead. Funny /not funny (:(
It is sad...and now we can be taking care of business 24/7. We can be talking to Jake from State Farm at 3 in the morning instead of sleeping in bed.

And people wonder why they're stressed.

Regarding my reply to our mutual friend, "Sassafrass," I was simply attempting to highlight her penchant for stating her opinions as though they are irrefutable fact, and to present her with the sort of "absolutist" choices she feels she can present to make her case that, "Anyone who believes in any sort of restrictions with regards to the subject of abortion can't possibly be genuinely "Pro-Choice."
I expect if we all said "no restrictions...abortions should be available right up to seconds before birth" Sassy think that's even worse. She should be happy some people are fine with restrictions...but it's just another point to argue.

Because a-holes keep passing unnecessary laws intended to impede access to legal abortions. Are you being intentionally idiotic, or do you have no choice in the matter?

Proving once again that PLM zombies don't object to abortion as long as THEY get to decide which abortions take place.

Frigging hypocrite.

Remember when Reagan declared ketchup a vegetable?

Yes, it was. And I thought it was ridiculous at the time, until I realized it wouldn't stop even one person from drowning themselves in soda :)
Combine that with the gov't deciding that pizza constitutes a "vegetable" for the purposes of school lunch, and a person has to shake their head at the sheer stupidity.
Of course, the whole point was the other poster assuming a political position for every pro-choice person here based only UPON our pro-choice position. He made an ass out of himself, and when I pointed that out, by letting him know my TRUE position on some of those, instead of admitting he was wrong, he nitpicked at the soda issue.
Like I said earlier, thank the Divine he's on the other side of the debate, so I don't have to experience contact embarrassment :)

I can't help but agree wholeheartedly.
This is a strange sort of phenomena I've witnessed lately with some members of the PLM. They seem as though they're genuinely insulted by the fact that they're actually "winning" by fits-and-starts the whole argument regarding abortion. More and more people who identify themselves as Pro-Choice, are agreeing that there ought to be reasonable restrictions as to when, where, how, and even "why," abortions should be performed.
It would seem that public opinion--for the most part--is trending against "Late-Term-Abortions, " and yet we have our darling "Sassafrass," attempting to argue that if we dare to embrace such a notion, we're not "PC."

Talk about "sore-winners!"

Thanks for the note from the counter of the obvious :)
As far as my life being threatened, well lets see it could have came from disease as you pointed out, it could've came from a scorned wife, or scored husband, or scorned lover.
I know what you're trying to do, which is say women's life can be threatened by pregnancy, and yes it "can", but you know full well most of the 3000 abortions done daily, are done just becouse, and has nothing to do with life threatening.
Well atleast to the "mother", since we know what happens to life of the child, which is way more than threatening.
Every pregnancy conceived carries the risk of death for the woman carrying it. That most of them don't actually result in death is a miracle of medicine...and this country is still third in the maternal death rates from gestation and birth, in the industrialized world.

No children are killed in an abortion.
Children are born.

Thank goodness, however, that the 20 week ban on abortions (ANY and ALL abortions past 20 weeks) DID NOT PASS in Albuquerque last week. Seems when people actually HAVE the opportunity to vote on these things, that the anti's generally lose. "NO" in Colorado. "NO" in Mississippi. "NO" in New Mexico. "NO" in Oklahoma. "NO" in Florida. "NO" in South Dakota.

So far, the only 'yes' vote on personhood, and other anti-choice amendments, has come out of North Dakota...and it's being challenged on US Constitutional grounds.

The only reason it passed, is the large concentration of fundamentalist Christian voters in ND, and the fact that the majority of pro-choice voters there, stayed home in droves. Not sure why...it's not like there aren't any.

LOL!! The label one puts on one's self is not really important.

It was funny...I thought Sassy would be somewhat happy that I don't think LTAs are a good thing...yet that sent her into alternating fits of rage and imbecilic (you're not really PC ah gagagagaga!) laughter.

I think that whole attitude shows that it isn't about a cause, but rather control. A sort of...*if I can't control what you do/think/believe then I'll control what you call yourself* kind of thinking.

<sigh>
Monday again already...have a good one!

He huffed and he puffed and he spittled and spat and posted to the wrong person! Then he ran from the thread in a frenzy....probably down to the local Kwik Trip to get a 500 oz soda.

That is typical of militant anti-choice religionists like Gtown, SassyJM, Ink, and other posters who "think" along the same lines. They want their backward religious beliefs imposed on ALL women, regardless of individual rights.

And we always need to remember that some of these religionists would ban contraception too if they could. For these backward idiots, a compulsory pregnancy agenda is all that matters.
