No reasonable person is prepared to declare all abortion illegal....or even immoral. But several million UN-reasonable people are prepared to decide for pregnant women what is 'acceptable self-defense' and what is 'murder' as a function of their personal morality.

Understand - I was given the CHOICE to continue attempting gestation, and had to sign a consent form, before I was able to obtain the abortion that saved my life, and allowed me subsequent motherhood. I cherish that choice, because I love my sons.

Why is it that some of us want the right to pick and choose which kid to adopt, but are revolted by the choice of whether to gestate or not? Could it be that the potential adoptors just want more unwanted kids to choose from?

Yes. Yes it could. I think it is.

Thanks for being honest about your complete and utter disdain for the 'vessel' a woman becomes, during pregnancy. You don't even give her credit for having a body - she's merely an incubator to you.

You can lie to yourself and think "nobody cares!". Or you can learn some facts. There's nothing proving women are physically and emotionally scarred from terminating unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies.
What is proven are the circumstances surrounding the decision to terminate unhealthy/unwanted pregnancy. And/or an unresolved psychological condition in that same time frame.
As NAP has recently said, deal with those issues -- poverty, free birth control, free daycare, etc., and this country might actually see the annual number of induced abortion continue to go down. You do know the annual number of abortions has been steadily dropping several years now, right? Even before all those ridiculous unreasonable restrictions were put into place. Thank goodness some courts are finding those restriction unconstitutional.
BAM! Just like that, you accidentally admitted this has nothing to do with your desire to protect women. Who thinks safer clinics is ridiculous and unreasonable? I know plenty of facts, but I don't need 4 million "words" to say that killing unborn children is barbaric. Call it whatever you want (interesting how some call it CIVIL rights--nothing civil about murder) it does not change the FACT that killing is WRONG.
I don't know whether to be shocked, horrified, or both by the "fact" (there's ya another one, right over there--that fact you wanted) that you don't know of all the atrocious stories out there of devastated women who never got over their abortion.

Sweetheart, those 'devastated women' are the product of a society that tells us we are killers if we act in self-defense against unhealthy pregnancies.

Yes....the part of society which fosters and encourages such self-revulsion, is the part of society to which you lay claim to memebership..........own it.

Thanks for the term of endearment. I really am a sweetheart.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'unhealthy pregnancy' though. Less than 1% of women would have died from the pregnancy, or at least, that's what they were told. 55 million babies have been aborted. Do the Math. Seems a lot of those babies weren't sacrificed for their mothers life. 95% of women who were denied abortion went on to have happy lives. Turns out, they didn't need PP to be their knight and Shiny Instruments.
Or do you mean the baby isn't healthy, or "perfect," as determined by our twisted society? I've never looked at a disabled child and thought they were not as worthy to have their life as I mine.
What about the Kindergarten teacher who chose to kill her baby at 32 weeks, because it might have a seizure disorder? Had she not been brainwashed into thinking that's the only way, I could almost guarantee that she, her husband, and their little girl would be living the life right now. They probably would have fallen in love with their little girl, and they'd be goo'ing at her every move.
Why didn't that happen? Why did it instead end up a bloody, senseless, horrific death for them both? A lot of women are coming out, and they're educating on their true experience. Things are changing.

Elise, ummmm actually, a lot of people clai it's not living, the ones who do not, admit that it is living, but they just don't care to kill it.
Btw---I understand you prefer the term "fetus," instead of baby, & that's fine with me. Fetus is Latin for "offspring," and offspring is (drum rolllllll, please) baby.
I use proper biological terms when discussing (drum rollllll, please) biology, science, medicine because that's what pregnancy and abortion are. But, go ahead and insert your term wherever you see fit. Enjoy. And, as much as you wish to deny it, any educated person knows that a fetus is a living organism (unless it's not alive, that is) What you would love is if a fetus would be given the status of person and that's very unlikely to happen. Please, prove to me 5, only 5, educated people that claim that a living fetus isn't living. A living organism is alive. Period. It's simple, simple biology. If you seriously believe that you can sway people who have been involved in abortion and reproductive rights for decades with your current argument...well, come on, really? You're funny. You believe what you believe, please. I'll believe what I believe. Just keep your nose out of other women's private medical matters.

You call them private medical matters, I call them human beings. Tomatoes/To-mau-toes, huh? Usually, when I'm offering someone help, I don't follow up with, "Will that be cash, or credit," then proceed to take every last cent they have. Money, no, that couldn't be an ulterior motive at all, eh? I will agree with you on one thing, my words have little to absolutely no effect on some people. If they know, truly know, what abortion is (this is where I say--enough with the words, and terms, just look at a picture,) & they're still ok with that, then nothing I say will change that. Reproductive rights (we Americans love the word "rights") sounds a lot better than what abortion looks like. If only one person decides to do their research, see's what an "into pieces" child looks like, & opens their eyes, then it was well worth it. It's worse than anything Hollywood could come up with in a high-budget horror film.

All your self-righteous pontificating won't take away a woman's right to make autonomous and private medical decisions, including whether to abort a pregnancy or to continue it. Doesn't matter what you personally believe about abortion. The only pregnancies you get to make decisions about are your own. Your abortion porn may turn you on, but it has no effect on reasonable people. Got to get some sleep before my shift. Have a nice day, sassy.

You've mistaken these unreasonable restrictions as "reasonable". Show me a dental or physician's office that must comply exactly the same way. Show me an outpatient ambulatory office (same day surgery) that must comply exactly the same way family planning clinics are being forced to comply. Then we can debate what is reasonable or not.

In the meantime, you can rest assured I agree with the restrictions as outlined in Roe v Wade using viability as an indication for restricting legal induced termination. But don't you forget the exception that pregnant woman's life is tantamount, even following viability. Fetus can be birthed, but may still only have a 50/50 chance at surviving. Nothing is guaranteed, especially healthy full term childbirth. The PLM and its followers seems to use wishful thinking into making it guaranteed. And it's not ever gonna happen.

As for your erroneous claim I used millions of words, you're lying. I wrote a couple paragraphs. Other than that, all the words belonged to the Merriam Dictionary and were C&Ped for your benefit. But you've already admitted to ignoring it. Says so much, you probably don't realize.

Now, here's what happens in countries where monitored, legal induced abortion becomes criminalized. Is this what you want for America?

"In places where abortion is illegal, women often turn to inadequately trained practitioners who employ unsafe techniques or attempt to self-induce abortion using dangerous methods. In Latin America and the Caribbean, nearly one million women are hospitalized each year because of complications from unsafe abortion, and the World Health Organization estimates that one in eight maternal deaths in the region result from unsafe abortion. Poor and rural women are disproportionately affected.

Fear of legal consequences, social stigma, high cost, and lack of access to trained health professionals are major barriers to obtaining safe abortions. Banning abortion does not reduce the numbers of women who attempt it; in fact, the abortion rate is much higher where it is illegal."

You may have never looked at children who are poor, have deadbeat parents, have disabilities that make them feel different and thought they don't deserve to be here.
But, I'd bet my left testicle that if you were to see these people in real life:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =Sls_TUe2NlIXX
You'd look at them and thought they don't deserve the fate they are enduring.
Bottom line, all you can offer these kids or people is your pity, because I'm sure you've not done one g-ddamned thing to help any one of them.
So, for all practical purposes, all you're doing is talking the talk. And there is an old saying that goes like "actions speak louder than words."
What you people need to do is mind your own business when it comes to a woman's decisions related to her pregnancy choices and if anything, spend a lot of time praying for abortion to end.
40 years dummies like you have been doing that and it has availed to nothing, and I tell you why; G-d does not go against the most important gift he have man/women; free will.
Pro-choice, or whatever other name you wish to call it, is nothing more than the advocacy of allowing a woman to exercise her G-d given, and constitutionally protected, free will to kill her unborn "baby" if she deems it necessary, or if she wants it. The consequences of her actions are for her to face alone.
We are on Topix, how can you possibly know what I have or have not done for anyone? Lol Whoopsie.
Words. Words. Words. Nope, still didn't change what it is. And more words.
I could go on and on about the sun, too. I could call it other names, say it's a different color, and blahhhhhh, but if someone goes out and looks at it (wear shades,) then they're going to see that my words meant nothing, because you can't change what the sun is, or what it's purpose is.
One more surprising fact---words, words, another word, a fancy word. And a word that means this. Beat around the bush 8 more times, and end this all with a word. Sheesh, that must be exhausting. It is what it is. The End.

Abortion porn? That's what you got out of people needing to SEE what it really is before deciding where they stand on the matter? Terrific way to dodge the statement/question on the topic of "have you seen what you're supporting". That would be like me concluding that you're "turned on" by women getting abortions, simply because you believe they should be allowed. Why would someone's brain go straight for something x-rated, especially on this topic? Ick! Tell ya what, I have read many stories of people viewing what IT really is, becoming mortified, & switching their views over to Pro-Life.
I have never read even ONE story of a Pro-Lifer seeing what IT really is, then switching over to Pro-Choice. That, in and of itself, speaks volumes.
Seeing is believing.
Do you also turn your head to other injustices you come across in life, because it's "none of your business"? That's such a problem in this country. Everyone only looking out for themselves, & not even realizing that's probably the biggest reason they turn out miserable, lonely, and mad at the world. Give God a try.

This is not a legal issue it is a moral issue.
Most women suffer emotionally and physically for the rest of their lives when they are forced by society into abortions in a moment of weakness
First, explain how to legislate morality. Who's morality is legislated? When and for how long? Does Christian morality take turns with Judaism's? Every third year Muslim morals are legislated? When do those Satanic morals get legislated? And for how long? Do you have any concept of how many different religions, different morals are practiced by a secular nation? Who gets to choose the best one followed? The Dictator?

Second, show scientific medical proof that "Most women suffer emotionally and physically for the rest of their lives when they are forced by society into abortions in a moment of weakness[.]"

Otherwise, I'm left believing that you, personally, believe legally induced pregnancy terminations are wrong and would not choose one for yourself. Lucky for you, in the USA, nobody can legally force you to choose one against your will, thanks to Roe v Wade.
