Women had very limited civil rights prior to Roe v Wade. Women DID FEAR their husbands (even after separating from them). Women DID FEAR choosing an abortion would mean death because these weren't safe, regulated, medical procedures. But that the abortion was *still* determined to be the right decision for that individual pregnant woman meant it literally was life or death.
Thank goodness for legal abortion. Since it's performed earlier and earlier, American women won't have to be subjected to those archaic FEARS anymore.
Even if this Gerri didnt get pregnant, he'd most likely have found out. So, her life would have been in jeopardy. She made her choice to sleep with her lover anyway, knowing he'd find out.

At the time, she committed an ILLEGAL act. And she died, her baby died and her other kids ended up wliving in abuse with their father.

Sounds selfish to me.

It STILL goes on today.....abuse....forced or feared abortions....sleeping around.....going into abusive relationships.....women dying during abortions.....babies killed during abortions....women./men making bad choices.....

NOBODY wants to *see* this. Unfortunately the truth HAS to be shown and exposed in order to get help and change
Gerris picture is used for an agenda and that is abortion. Her family and friends failed her. Killing her child was not going to help this woman.
The main reason they show the pic is to try and get sympathy for "their cause ".

This is why prochoice people show pics of aborted "babies ".

Both are effective, but the pro choice people shouldn't have a problem with the baby pics, if they truly believe the unborn are no more then medical waste.

They know when the women going into the abortion clinic will see the pics are pics of babies, and not just alittle tissue removed.

Oh no you don't "stand at fhe front lines of a woamns right to choose" if you want her abortion choices restricted.

You are antichoice like the rest of us. You only want her to have choices when YOU think she should.

You're a fraud. Youre death as choi e when YOU want to allow her.

Yep. I have had girls and guys (going in for abortions)s come up to view both the before abortion( as the baby looks at different stages of life) and after the abortion. They are usually shocked at both.

I remember back when that man showed Clinton an aborted baby in a jar. The country went nuts at the horror. Then to cover up the horror of zeeing this tiny baby, the proaborts started the lies of all sortsn(one of them that the guy threw it in Clintons face).

Medical waste supposedly caused such an uproar. More like the TRUTH did.

You're antichoice like me. You don't want her having a choice. You want to FORCE her to gestate.
Own it.
It's only a lie in your head. Roe v Wade clearly states a woman has sole discretion of determining her pregnancy the first trimester.

It also states following the first trimester, the states may add their own restrictions. These restrictions are usually based on fetal development and viability.

All per Roe v Wade.

Where, exactly, is the lie here?

Hey y'all

I have another inane idea to pose to you PCers:

The next time you get in a heated agrument with your child/ren and you just want the agrument to end, you should say:

"I am sick and tired of agruing with you. You got a real bad attitude lately! You little brat, you're lucky to be here ya know...that's right...I could have aborted you if I had wanted too. Don't roll your eyes...we women have the right and the power to abort whoever we want and I could very easily have aborted you. Just remember that! Now go to your room!"

I could give you lessons in grammar, as I was an English major, but I'd never try to lesson in spelling. I've always been a "creative" speller as my mom used to say. Its one of the reasons I sell books and dont write 'em.
ON that subject however, I will comment that you write SO poorly, it feeds the stereotype that extremists like yourself are uneducated dolts. Its difficult to take someone seriously that can't be bothered to at write or speak properly.

Let's presume for argument's sake that the fetus has the same rights as born people. Wouldn't that mean it doesn't have the right to use someone's body against their will? After all, such a thing would be counted as slavery.

I find it interesting in a disturbing way, how quickly the "prolife" side willingly compromises the civil rights of females.

What has making abortion legal done to change that?
Women still die. Women are scarred emotionally and physically.
Her baby always dies.
The woman kills her conscience and is left to bear the guilt of her crime against humaniity.
Yeah...we've come a LONG way baaaaaby!.@@
Women can welcome or reject pregnancy, per Roe v Wade. If there's an issue with residual guilt or any other negative impact following the woman's decision to welcome or reject pregnancy needs to be dealt with in the best way possible for the woman and her family.

It is encompassing, JM, not myopic.

Did your mom not explain to you what pregnancy is? It is how mankind was created to procreate. It's not a disease.

Glad I could help.

It wasn't the fetus's choice to come into existance. The woman choose to have sex and in doing so she brought that fetus into existance.

The fetus then cannot be held responsible for forcing anything upon the woman, so it cannot be counted as 'slavery'.

Also, female fetuses are females waiting to be born. Why are you against these particular females in the womb not getting any rights?

Women can also reject pregnancy by not having sex.

"You see, even after a preborn baby goes through the stage of in utero to birth, you still consider him/her a fetus (for up to 48 hours)."
Even in regard to that hypothetical question asked and answered a year or so ago, I have not claimed baby was still a fetus for 48hrs. I have claimed it takes the newborn to awaken after delivery, after being in the equivalent of anesthesia during its development. You're a crooked little basement boy, BB.
Now you add lying to your evasion of the CO Catholics claiming those fetal twins were not persons.
Not looking good for NR today. No siree.
Katie: "I have not claimed baby was still a fetus for 48hrs."

Psst....here's what you claimed in YOUR OWN WORDS:

"There is no 'exact moment' as fetus changing to baby is a process begun during labor and continuing after delivery well into the first 24-48hrs after childbirth.The brain continues to adjust for life outside the womb, see." - Katie

Abortion, whether now or before 1973, has always been a choice for a woman. The women who died from illegal and unsafe abortions put themselves in those risky situations by choice.

No woman has ever had to have an abortion. Case in point, I have never heard of a situation in which a woman choose not to get an abortion and then immediately burst into flames or exploded.

The better and safer choice has always been to have the baby and then put it up for adoption.

When you want me to be ok with it being legal in my country, and you want me to be ok with the gov. Taking money out of my wallet and investing it in pp, then no.I'm not.
Women who don't wish to be a mother, need not get pregnant.
After they are pregnant, it is to late.
No, GT, I couldn't care LESS if you are okay with abortion being legal or not, or if you don't like Planned Parenthood. Once again, your being "okay" with something or not is IRRELEVANT, especially to any woman who doesn't want to stay pregnant.

Any woman who doesn't wish to be a mother doesn't HAVE to stay pregnant and give birth against her will. ALL birth control methods can and DO fail at times, so unwanted pregnancies still happen. When it does, the ONLY person who makes the decision to continue it or not is the WOMAN who is pregnant. Don't like it? Too bad, dude, it ISN'T your call to make.

Hmmmm...interesting you should say that. Tell that to honeyfoofoo next time she decides to link Gerris naked, bloody photo.

What's interesting also is ghe fact that you women don't seem to care about the same women after the abortion is over with the guilt or negative experiences. So pro woman.
