You believe the answers I've given are not forthcoming or honest? I supplied a link from Huffington Post showing how Planned Parenthood responded to the "investigation" by liveaction. I showed where they fired the employee who'd been "investigated" or as I see it, set up, because she did not respond appropriately. And I showed another link explaining the sex-selection that does take place in the states is done by those from OTHER countries/cultures. Meaning American women aren't out there using sex-selection to abort female ZEFs.
What more do you need to know other than I don't believe sex-selection is an issue in this country? That the representative crying wolf about it is using circular logic -- as I pointed out the other day?

This claim is made by a pro choice femminist

As “pro-choice” feminist author Mara Hvistendahl details in her critically acclaimed book,“Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys Over Girls, and the Consequences of a World Full of Men”:

Sex selection remains mostly invisible, however, a more pervasive and yet quieter epidemic, observed only by demographers scrutinizing birth registration records years after the fact—and, of course, by the hundreds of millions of people who live or will live in communities where women are scarce.
Hvistendahl concluded that sex-selection worldwide, through a “combination of ultrasound and abortion ... has claimed over 160 million potential women and girls—in Asia alone.” She noted by comparison,“AIDS has claimed an estimated 25 million people worldwide—a mere fraction of the number of missing females.” Yet, sex-selection “remains mostly invisible

Did you even bother to read either of our posts? Saline? What decade are we in? Arms and sucked off? When are the vast majority of abortions performed? I know you can't argue with anything but histrionics, but you need to know that no one with an education takes you seriously, darlin'

I guess in your fantasy-owned world, every single pregnancy would result in a the birth of a child.

Unfortunately, God doesn't appear to let that happen.

Why keep the reasons for wanting an abortion a big secret? There's nothing to be ashamed of afterall and everyone around you should be proud that you're a person who always makes good decisions. You're incapable of making a bad decision.
Feel free to give up your personal privacy.

You do understand what privacy is regarding medical issues, right? How your business is yours, not the gov't's, not the clergy's, and not the nosy parkers of the world (like you).

For the same reasons that any medical information is kept confidential. There are a number... do some reading, dear. The most common reason and one that even the most ignorant person should understand is that it's nobody's business. Any normal person wouldn't expect a reason or be interested in prying into another person's personal business. Why do you think you have a right to know a person's private medical matters? Que mitotiendo.

Imagine what? You're MORONIC hypothetical that has NO basis in reality? No mother is having their child ripped apart while in a coma you dunce.
And YES Lynnie, I know you're now making the claim that this is what's happening during an abortion. But since zygotes, embryo's and fetus's dont have the capacity to trust, it makes your post just moronic.
For example - and this is using YOUR "logic":
Its a shame that your "children" couldn't trust YOU enough while they were in that condition, to have you protect them, and at least two of them ended up as fetal floaters in a toilet.
You didn't rip them apart, but you certainly sent them for a dip in some cold water, and the poor things couldn't even swim.....

Well we KNOW You couldn't be trusted.

And you're a living example of that at LEAST three times over.

And YOUR insentient Tic Tac's were fished out of a toilet, because they couldn't trust mommy to care for them properly. Funny how that works huh?
FooManSpew: "And Lily, YOUR insentient Tic Tac's were fished out of a toilet, because they couldn't trust mommy to care for them properly. Funny how that works huh?"

Gays & lesbians wonder why they have a hard time getting others to "tolerate" them, when they have the tolerance level of filthy swine. Over 90% of homosexuals don't even tolerate the most helpless & innocent amongh us. As your fellow homosexual friend cPeter put it, ya'll wanna "flush 'em down the toilet".

Good luck getting support for your life of debauchery.

Oh, and, let up on your demand for tolerance. You don't give tolerance, so..........

..........Funny how that works huh?

What a hypocritical moron. His priorities & emotions are like dreadlocks....tangled & dirty.

You must first show that pregnancy is discrimination before saying laws addressing pregnancy (i.e. protecting the baby in the womb) is discrimination.
Pregnancy is how mankind was created to procreate. It's natural and normal.
Proving that pregnancy is an existential discriminatory state won't happen. Our Creator would have to be the one charged with discrimination.(Good luck with that)
Pregancy "is"....it's just as mankind was created for it to be.
"You must first show that pregnancy is discrimination before saying laws addressing pregnancy (i.e. protecting the baby in the womb) is discrimination."

That's like saying "you must first show that race is discrimination before saying laws addressing race (i.e. segregating blacks from whites) is discrimination."

Cause the third alternative is that two random people showing up with the same exact story makes it quite improbable.

Over 90% of homosexuals are staunch proaborts.
In other words, they "expect" tolerance but beleive they are exempt from giving tolerance......even tolerance to the most vulnerable human beings among us - those in the womb.

I bet it's pretty much fu**ing impossible for a fetus to use language or comparative concepts like "sharp." Especially since they don't have conscious thought capacity.

"Common knowledge" means "crap I just made up." Creation is an opinion not supported by facts. The fact is that most women CAN get pregnant, not that they have any obligation to become so or staying so.

<quoted text>
It is common knowledge that by the nature of mankind's creation, women were created to carry offspring within their womb (i.e. pregnancy).
Unless mankind is "re-created," the fact will remain regardless if you like it or not.
Pregnancy is not discrimination. Pregnancy is a normal part of what it is to be human.
The wheels for your line of reasoning have slipped off the tracks. You haven't yet grasped common knowledge.
Tighten it up.
You're embarrassing.
