I always wonder why someone mentions a woman's right to her own body when they discuss abortion. They act as though the unborn child is not a separate entity, as though he or she is simply another arm or leg of the parent. What about the child's rights? Does he or she not have the right over their own body? From the moment that a sperm and egg cell come together, the being that is created is totally and completely unique from any other that exists. His/her DNA is different from every one else's, including his/her biological parents. To destroy this new person is murder in the clearest fashion since, regardless of the actions of their biological parents, the child has commited no offense and is completely innocent. What does society think of a man who stands by and watches unconcerned while an innocent child is brutally murdered? I hope far less than one who risks ridicule by holding a sign to stop such a shameful act.

Do you think signs stop abortions? Nah, women going into the clinid already have their minds made up.

Why don't people protest outside of in vitro clinics? More embryos are dying in the freezers every day than inside an abortion clinic.

Incidentally, I agree with the title of your post. Abortion question SHOULD be a woman's.

whatever helps you sleep at night I suppose.Abortion is
murder its killing another person even if that person(baby)is temporarily housed in the body of his or her mom(host).I've heard just about every lie the abortionist can think of to offer and non hold any substance.It's killing of the most precious and defenseless of our population.May God have mercy on our souls that we as a
human race have not done more to stop this national horrendous tragedy!I hope and pray that this plight will be removed from our state,nation and world.I know we need some birth control measures,but killing infants should not be one of them!

We also need some access to healtcare for the poor and for all of use to give a crap about kids in foster care or who need homes.

We, as a society, have a lot of problems. Abortion is just one.

ICK..to all the murder talk...I do have control and say if something is growing in my body...especially if it could not survive without me on it's own as separate. My body my choice. I just love the propaganda using words like murder, and killing... I say go use your energy where it will matter...adopt older, special needs children, become a foster parent, go comfort children that are dying, or help a family reduced to living on the streets, or the mom's that can't afford health care for their babies.....

I love this topic because anyone who believes in abortion is an Idiot and ignorant. When Scott Peterson killed is wife and her unborn baby they wanted to/or did charge him for the murder of his wife and unborn baby but abortion is not concidered murder because it is a womans right. The government trys to say that a fetus is not considered a baby until a certain point during the pregnancy that is bullshit. If its murder in the 3rd trimester then its murder in the first and second one also. Dont be a hypocrite. There is always adoption. Plenty of people out there not able to have kids why not give them the gift of life.

Those "plenty of people" who can't have kids could adopt any of the plenty of kids in the foster care system. There is no shortage of homeless and parentless children.

I think what's propaganda is pro-choicers' extremely presumptuous propaganda, that keeps implying that people who are pro-life don't do any of these things, or other things to help others in need who are already born. Not to mention the propaganda that denies abortion, which is ending/stopping a life ISN'T "killing" that life. It's deceptive to try to fluff it by saying it's just "ending a pregnancy", when most people realize what a "pregnancy" really is.

Yep, but they don't count, because they're already born. The only important ones to the PLM (here) are the ones not yet born.

Or the ones nearing the end of their lives due to old age or unfortunate catastrophic injury<cough Terri Schiavo cough>.

If these biblethumpers are so darn convinced that the "end times" are upon us then why bother complaining about abortion or gay rights or the right to refuse medical treatment<ALS/ANH> when every living thing on the planet is gonna die anyhow?

No i care about all of them but just because you only care about the ones that are already born does not mean that abortion is not taking a life and if you can not see that abortion is taking a life then you are an idiot. What if it was your child and you had no say cause you were the dad and its the womans body. Well damnit if i men are responsible for child support just like women and taking care of the child then they should have a say other wise if its gonna be the womans child the womans choice then women who do choose to have a child and get divorced can choose to pay for that child themselves. You are such a hypocrite just like everyone else on this subject it is not your choice to take someone elses life and no i am not a bible thumper not that there is anything wrong with that.

I doubt it.

Once Pete sees the question he'll have to admit that he's wrong on the "end times" belief,or that he's right & then such issues as abortion shouldn't matter anyway & I just don't see him admitting to either one of those things.
