<quoted text>These hypocrites are trying to say that it's sooo "disrespectful" to show that picture as a graphic and stark testament to the pre-RvW years. Of course, marching around with posters of a dead fetus that they say is "a someone's precious baby" isn't disrespectful. Jeez, double standard, much?
Aint that the truth!

<quoted text>Yesthey are, Whoopie Goldberg made me sick yesterday when she said abortion was necessary. THAT ITS NOT A CHOICE IN MOST CASES.
For someone that claims to hate her so much, you sure go out of your way to watch and quote her as often as you can.

Hypocrite.

Hey Gtown, here's ANOTHER story from a woman who seriously regrets becoming a mother. This is one more contradiction to the anti-choice "mothers never regret having their children" MYTH.

I love my son, but I hate being a mother. For me, motherhood has been a thankless, monotonous, exhausting, irritating, and oppressive job. I never wanted children, but I buckled into my husbandís desire to have a child and became pregnant at age 39. My husband has a romantic view of children and parenthood. He strongly believes that a life without children isnít fulfilling. I agreed to get pregnant after much debate and regarded the decision as a compromise to keep contentment in the marriage. I should have listened to my gut instincts because I am not well suited to parenthood. I never enjoyed spending time around kids or playing with kids. Children, especially the out of control varieties, irritate me. The well behaved children bore me to tears. Motherhood hasnít changed these feelings. Pregnancy was miserable and depressing. Motherhood feels like a prison sentence. I canít wait until I am paroled when my son turns 18 and hopefully goes far away to college. I am blessed with a supportive, loving husband. But despite his best intentions, most of the parenting and household responsibilities fall on my shoulders. I am currently searching for full time work and cannot wait to put my son in daycare or with a nanny. My husband wants me to be a stay at home mom until our son starts school, but I cannot tolerate another 2 years of a childcentric existence without becoming nuttier than a fruitcake. Motherhood seems to be causing my IQ to drop with rapid speed. I expect to become a drooling, blathering idiot if I donít return to the real world soon and get some of elements of my former life back. To make matters worse, my smothering in-laws, who pre-baby demanded tons of time and attention, have intensified the guilt trips to ďspend time togetherĒ ever sense the baby enter the picture. Weekly visits with the in laws have evolved into visits 4 or more times a week. MIL has tons of parenting expertise that I donít need or want to hear. She is spoiling my son with buying him crap on a daily basis that he doesnít need and uses it as an excuse to ďstop by and see the babyĒ. I recently returned a cartload of unnecessary crap to Toys R Us and Baby Gap and used the cash to buy two pairs of sexy boots and a bottle of perfume. This experience was the highlight of my year.
**********
IMO women who are either undecided about having children or have made the decision to be childfree (no kids by choice) would benefit from reading stories like this one. Given the choices between childfree and unhappy motherhood, I think it's far better for a woman to be childfree rather than an unhappy mother.
I like the story, and find it again true.

I know these women are not making these stories up.

See ocean I try to say what I believe is true, even when it goes against all I stand with.

Sounds like she needs to walk away and sign over her rights to her MIL,who keeps buying the kid junk! Lol

I'm very thankful at times, that my family is dead, and my wifes are far away.

I've already stated raising kids are hard, some moms don't connect witg their kids, but I still believe it is a normal part of life.

They can make their own choices.
She didn't have to BUCKLE into her husbands wishes.

<quoted text>Public money does not pay for abortion. You have been informed of that fact many times. Stop lying. As for your problem with the man not having a say in pregnancy, I don't know what you to do be done about that. She cannot be forced to stay pregnant because the man wants her to. It's simply impossible for him to carry the burden and the risk of pregnancy. Therefore, it's not for him to have the
final say.
Sure it don't.

Ok so public money "our money taken and given to whom the gov see's fit ",and the gov sees fit to give planned parenthood alot of money, right?

Ok and they have money to helo pay for abortions, and label the pm for something else.

If they "pp " had to pay for that somethung else out of tbeir money, then they wouldnt have enough to help pay for abortions.

No matter how you say it, the money the gov forces from us, and gives to them does help go toward abortions.

One way or another.

Oh geez, THAT nonsense again. Sorry, dude (not really), but any man who has a problem with a woman aborting the product of his sperm needs to ask the question "what would you do if you got pregnant?" BEFORE he sleeps with a woman, not afterward.
If he can't be bothered to take this simple precautionary step BEFORE having sex with or beginning a relationship with a woman, then he has only HIMSELF to blame when this situation arises. You don't get to force a woman to gestate an unwanted pregnancy any more than you can force her to abort one. Whether YOU like it or not, it is still the WOMAN's decision, and her RIGHT to make it.
You didn't have to write sorry,dude (not really)

You could have just left out the comma between sorry and dude.
That would've made many happy. Lol

Does anyone need a car that goes over 85 mph?

When the right to bear arms was written in (not just made legal, by a handfull of judges, like abortion), using the guns for hunting was the last thing on their minds.

It was so that in case the gov decided to run shotgun over those in which they govern.

You can outlaw all the clips you want, there is sooo many out there now, it would be crazy to think they will get them all, and a clip, is so easy to make I'm surprised it is not on pintrest. Lol

That's true but in many states it is paid for by medicaid for very loose reasons. Ones which any woman could easily attest to.

Just to show that there is no such thing as a "safe " abortion. That's all.

With regaurds to the lady "they used " to get all of this started, it is becouse many feel that prolife people are just uneducated and ignorant to the facts.

I was just pointing out the fact, that their poster child that was ROE only had a ninth grade education.

Very few abortions are paid for with public funds, and most of those are therapeutic, not elective. On th other hand, we are paying a helluva lot more for kids born to those who can't afford them.
BTW--the woman doesn't have to tell anyone she is pregnant, aside from the medical staff she deals with.
<quoted text>
It doesn't matter is public money on pays one tenth of only one abortion, it still means that the public is forced to pay for what clearly many believe to be the killing of innocence.
Plus abortion is a big word that means different things.

When most think about abortion, they are talking about the killing and removing of an otherwise healthy life.

Yet pro choicers show extreme cases instead of the norm.

Do they really believe that the Constitutional Right to bear arms was for hunting? You wouldn't need a right for that since it was the only way to feed your family. Liberals aren't very clear thinking nor do they have much foresight.

Ofcourse abortions are paid for with public money.

It is a shell game.

A person could do the dave ramsey plan -putting money in envelopes for different things, but when more money is needed in one area and less in another area, they just pull money from one and put it in another.

Even if they wait untill the next time they adjust tbeir budgets.

This is why they want it legal, so that not only do they "feel " better, but they can let others pay for it.

Like gay people want others to think it is normal, but if you look at how 40 years have passed and the FACT that several states are down to only 1 abortion clinic 'that the state wants shut down ",then we can see the truth.

With all that is going on in the world, today our prez is still only talking about abortion rights and gay rights. It is crazy.

Plus the same ones fighting sooo hard for one "right " will fight just as hard against another right.

Double standard is all they have.

Not all pro life folks tote around those pics either, but when you see pics of partial birth or late term abortions, what do you see?

Do you see tissue?

Do you see a wad (notice spelling)?

Do you see a dead baby?

Some show how their life was ended.

Some have their arms cut off, legs, head, all of the above.

To me, it looks like a crime scene where a baby was cut to pieces.

Do you think the baby suffered?
Do you think it hurt the baby?

Do you think the baby was in pain, before they died?

FooManCrew: "Now I'll stand at the front lines of women's right to CHOOSE."

You are like Nancy Keenan: a wilting flower.

She is resigning as president of NARAL b/c she admits she's no longer effective. At the same time, she is concerned at the weak backup from younger generations.

"Postmenopausal Militia" has blathered itself into meaninglessness. So much so that you haven't inspired millenials to get active......like prolife millennials are.

Chip.....chip.....chip.....

(Pssssst........read your tweets, dear........what millennial in her right mind would ever want to be like you? You miserable ol' deathscort. Just sayin'.....)

Agreed!

They clearly believe in "their " rights "which was patched in, by a handfull of judges ",yet will fight against those who have an original right and a right this country was founded upon.

The craziest thing is how they feel they can do away with one, and still feel the other will be protected.

They show where other countries have done this and that, but fail to realize that WE ARE NOT LIKE OTHER COUNTRIES.

People are dying to GET INTO our country, since their country is soo great. Lol
