What do you expect since this country has voted in a conservative republican president and a conservative majority in congress and now have a conservative majority sitting on the supreme court? Conservatives rule and the people have put them there!!! That's what democracy is all about.

True. I personally wouldn't get an abortion but I think that it's a personal choice and Bush is way too conservitive and wants everybody to be like that with "christian" values.

Right! Remember the stem cell research? Same thing...imposing his PERSONAL beliefs onto us as Americans.

When it comes to personal beliefs we all have them.
The bottom line about the moral issue, here, what does
God say about the sanctity of life in the Bible. He is
the one who will have the last word.

Let’s examine why, exactly, abortions are legal. Is it because of rape, incest or life of the mother? No(though the SD law allows for rape victims to take the abortion pill before a pregnancy test is taken), since less than 1% of abortions are because these reasons. This means that 99% of abortions are pregnancies that result from consensual sex. The truth is that abortion takes away accountability, consequence and responsibility. Abortion is legal because it’s easier, it’s more convenient. 99% of abortions are convenience abortions.
Most unwanted pregnancies could have been avoided if there was a little responsibility, and I don’t mean birth control.
Consensual means that both people consented to have sex.
If you can’t afford a baby, then don’t have sex during the times that you could become pregnant. If it still happens, look to the nearest church, charity group, women’s shelter or women’s resource center for help. Lest we forget that putting a child up for adoption is free while abortions tend to be expensive.
If you’re too young to have a baby, you shouldn’t be having sex in the first place but if you are, then don’t have sex during the times that you could become pregnant.
If you just don’t want a baby, if it would be more convenient not to be pregnant, then don’t have sex during the times that you could become pregnant.
It comes down to simple common sense. You can control your animal instincts. Women, if you’re more responsible it forces men to be as well.
Your right to choose does not exist after the fact, but rather, at the point where you choose whether or not to engage in consensual sex is where this right exists.
Where do babies come from? Having sex during the times that you could become pregnant. How should you avoid an unwanted pregnancy? Don’t have sex during the times that you could become pregnant. Take some accountability for your actions. It’s just that easy.

I cannot pretend to know what it is like to be raped or to give birth, but neither you nor I can assume to know what it is like to be killed by being cut into pieces or by having saline injected into the top of our heads, or by being pulled down the birth canal then having scissors stuck into the back of our heads and then having our brain suctioned out. After you've had that experience, please come back and enlighten the rest of us, but it doesn't sound all that pleasant to me. Let's not let one person’s rights supercede another’s.

Good for you Paul! The last part especially...you admit that you don't know what it's like to suffer rape or give birth and then you appropriately state what the unborn child endures because of the parent choosing to abort them. Very well put and entirely appropriate to have the discussion centered around what the issue really is: killing what God created.

None of us would think of removing the child from the vagina and then suctioning out it's brain...why then after the baby is past the cervix and virtually delivered is "partial birth abortion" legal? I'll tell you why...because our thinking has become so depraved as to believe that our "rights" can not be governed by anyone else. What about seat belt laws, what about prohibitions on smoking below a certain age, or drinking alcohol for that matter? It's my body. Can't I do to it what I want?

If God is the creator and designer of all life, then I fear for our nation as we've murdered over 50 million of His divinely formed children. If God doesn't exist (and I believe He does) then we've said that human life at it's most vulnerable and innocent state is nothing more than a decision to be made based on the degree of inconvenience it represents in the life of the mother!

Shame on us and I won't even ask for God's mercy and Grace...He'll offer it even though we're not deserving.

I read somewhere, when abortion was first being argued, pro choice (abortionists) wanted a thirty day period after birth, in which to "decide" whether a baby could be aborted. There seems to be no greater depravity, than to casually murder an unborn child, in such a heinous and horribly painful manner. If you do this, may you experience the same pain, you inflicted on an unborn child, to the same degree.

We don't have to take our clothes off to have a good time, oh no. We could dance and party all night and drink some cherry wine, uh huh. Na-na-na-na-nana-na-na.
