Self centered YOU are not every woman/girl. It can be a death sentence to some and a trip to the poor house for many. YOU tend to base everything on your self. Get over it. The issue is LARGER than you.

And I think you're reading more into it than is actually there.

BTW, for some women, it is.

They can feel however they want.

The rubber meets the road when they try to pursue law based on mythology.

Your insistence on picking a fight is laughable. Nothing better to do?

Why don't you go fluff your hair and apply some lipstick have a cup of coffee and relax.

Again, for some women, it is. You not liking her pointing out that possibility in the face of those who wish to deny it ever happens, is really irrelevant.

And you not making the same complaint when someone on the other side implies that a woman can always get the help she needs, if she's not selfish and lazy, is hypocrisy.

"Death sentence for some, and a trip to the poor house for many".(((shiver)))

You're not every woman/girl either.

Keep speaking on my behalf though, I can't stop you.

You get over it. The issue isn't as LARGE as you like to portray it.

What are you talking about? A woman not getting what she needs is because I said she's selfish, and lazy? What? When did I say that?

And it isn't about you. It really isn't about any of us here, except in the broadest of senses. The issue is large enough that it proves that each and every one of us (yes, even you) should have the choice of whether or not to take/continue that possible risk.

And that possibility is all that is being mentioned. Again, in the face of those who wish to deny it EVER happens. If you are not one of those people, then you have no need to get so upset over the way someone else expresses it. Scroll on past if it upsets you so.

It's you who is overreacting, actually. And you are trying to justify it by pretending that something has happened that has not.....that the poster is claiming pregnancy damages every women's health, or finances. That is not the case.

I never claimed to be every woman/girl.

I am for allowing ALL women/girls to deal with their own pregnancies. Apparently you are not.

YOU are implying that your personal set of experiences and your ability to deal with them is every woman/girls same experience. Like I said....get over yourself.

Risks in everything! So don't do anything?
What I WILL do is choose for myself what risks I'll take. You don't speak for others either.

I was scared throughout my pregnancies. I don't dwell on it though. If you weren't scared good for you. You get to tell everyone how great and easy it was for you. Other women get to tell their stories too. You have the right to not listen.

We women go through a lot from start to finish in a pregnancy and labor, and for awhile after labor too. I think we earned some bitching rights. Maybe you felt great throughout your pregnancies. Maybe you had no pain and discomfort or health issues. Fabulous!

Maybe your hips are as wide as a canyon and your birth canal is as spacious as the Holland Tunnel and your babes slipped right out while you were watching TV. Again that's fabulous. To you that means you get to tell other women to shut their mouths about what they went through because they're feelings don't matter.

Pregnancy and labor are scary. Most of the time things go right but there's many things that have the POTENTIAL to go wrong.

Your flippant attitude not withstanding.

It IS a death sentence for some and it IS a a trip to the poor house for many. Who also ends up in the poor house with Mom? The children. It's a reality. Maybe you're living nice and comfy somewhere in an affluent community but millions of women and children aren't and ARE living in poverty. That IS both a LARGE issue and a WIDESPREAD issue. It's a HUGE issue.

That same sky daddy must be the one taking pregnancies away by causing miscarriages. What did all those poor couples do the be punished in such a cruel manner? I guess we'll never know.

<quoted text>Morals are subjective, I understand that, a "moral society" bases its laws on what is considered right, or just by the majority of it's people. In order to make a determination of what is right/just all aspects of the question, and realistic value of those aspects, must be considered. In abortion, some may consider killing the fetus immoral, others may consider forcing a woman to carry to term immoral, to address that question as a society we must consider both arguments and their realistic value. Since I've been posting back here in the last couple weeks all I have tried to address are those that are being unrealistic about the value of a living human fetus, or perhaps the exaggeration of the woman's rights by comparing her to a slave. We cannot base our laws, as a moral society, on anything less than reasonable arguments.
Personally, I believe that aborting a fetus without extreme circumstance is immoral, as I believe imposing my beliefs on a woman and forcing her to carry the pregnancy to term, without myself being responsible or suffering the consequences of that pregnancy, immoral. Abortion is a complicated issue and no law, or ruling, will satisfy both sides, so it has to be addressed realistically. It seems to me that most people here see their side as good and the other side as bad, while neither side even considers the other's arguments. I have not tried to argue what is moral, only that the question has to be addressed as a moral society, seeking what is right/just, intelligently, considering all aspects, and their realistic value.
Roe v Wade addresses abortion realistically, intelligently, and with consideration for the 'interests of the State.'

How do you propose to 'address' the complicated issue of abortion?(Since 'personhood' amendments are being rejected right and left, and so far all the 'pro-life' side has accomplished with regard to 'intelligently' addressing it, is to increase the number of hoops women must jump through, and make us wait longer, to get one?)

Yeah, these so called prolifers are merely procontrol, these personhood bills speak volumes! The push is to grant personhood from "the moment of conception" is an attempt to eliminate the actual "personhood" of the woman/girl and reduce her to second class status. Granting personhood is religious based and nothing more.
