Does anyone know how an abortion is performed? What leads up to the death of the baby?

Anyone?

Like I've said many time, you can't understand simple things like logic and evidence. Facts and common sense are your enemy, oh arrogant one.
Well I'll give credit where it is.

I can say, that I truly believe, that you believe what you say to be true!

Atleast you stand for what you believe, and I've not seen you attack soneone for one sin and claim that you don't.

The men that hijacked those airplanes on 911, also truly believed in their beliefs.

You say sin is a man made concept, which means there is no such thing in truth.
Which also means each person can live as they please, or as they see fit correct?
Without any ramifications from a god, correct?
People only have the laws of the land to answer for, if what they see as ok, crosses those laws, correct?

As I said -I like the fact that you don't look upon one person as a sinner "bad person ",at the same time you look at another sinner "bad person " and are ok with them, since they sin differently.

After losing my entire family "except a sister ",by the age of 22 -I had no moral compass on earth, and I had no compass the other way, since I to believed as you do now.
I believed if people thought something wrong with two people living together, then they were just out dated, and old fashion religious people,who were only doing what they were taught to do, or believe.

But as I've said time and time again -God changed my core values and thoughts about MY sin,and sin all together.

I never knew, that by just living my life as I seen fit, I was on my way to a "devils " Hell, since Hell was never made for man.

I will go to my grave believing in God as my savior now.
I truly believe I will meet God as my father, instead of my judge.

Lynne, get real. You're not fooling anyone, and you never have - no matter HOW often you delude yourself. We had your number from 2006 when you posted as Lynne D, we had it from day 2 when you posted as Perverse, and we nailed your stupid ass from day ONE here as Lily.
I'm sure there's a WHOLE LOTTA folks that dont care for how I comport myself often here, but EVEN among them, I guarantee I have more credibility than you will EVER have.
I must admit, you being mentally ill is the ONLY reason I can fathom why you'd continue this charade.
What's not relevant here is who you think is who, or why. What is relevant here is people POSTING the truth, which you don't do. What is relevant here is posting proof of your claims, and not trying to deflect like an ignorant buffoon using childish topics like who you think is who here, whenever you can't prove your claims. What is relevant and what you proved is that you have NO PROOF of your claim of mutual abuse, and no justification for attacks on a PLer's life and having been a victim of domestic violence. That's ALL you proved with your bullshit recently..

I'm just fine with a bunch of liars who are on the pro-choice side of the abortion issue thinking I have no credibility. Are you kidding? lol. PC LIARS thinking PL people who post the truth are not credible. In the words of Larry The Cable Guy, "I don't care who you are, that's funny, right there."

In other words, you're basically saying that if a woman has sex, she must be PUNISHED with pregnancy and birth, even if she may have used a reliable contraceptive to PREVENT unwanted pregnancy and doesn't want to stay pregnant. Got it.@@
Again, NO woman has to be punished with unwanted pregnancy simply because she consented to having sex. Obviously, using birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancy is much better than abortion, but there ARE times when BC methods fail. When BC fails and an unwanted pregnancy happens, EACH woman has the right to decide for HERSELF whether to continue it or not.
Motherhood is OPTIONAL, not required, and a woman can reject it for any reason. Your approval isn't needed or required for her to reject motherhood.
When People choose to have sex, They assume all wrist that come along with it. You know as well as I do that most people who get pregnant don't even use contraceptives. Most abortions come from a 1 night stand or a very short term relationship.
People want pleasure without any negative ramifications,but that is not how life works. If there was no God, it would work that way, but people would not like that very much either. It would mean someone could rape,murder, or both and be just fine.

People want to condemn others, and at the same time get away with whatever they choose.

Contraceptives was introduced to try to fix a problem.

- They did not fix anything.
All they did was send a message to most the sex could be safe, but as you and I both know there's no such thing as safe sex.

I'm not trying to impose laws,that says everyone must live according to the Bible, since I know full well that most people never live according to the Bible.

This is the whole reason why Jesus Christ came.
We needed a savior,and still do.

I also do not believe we should make laws that condone that behavior,and even "add to " the bad behaviors.

No sex, is worth the killing of life.
Motherhood is optional, but abortion only makes a woman the mother of a dead child.

Incorrect. Less than half of all abortions are performed on women who are not married, or living with someone, at the time. And there are no statistics on "one night stands".

Only if the pregnant woman already has children, having given birth to them, or adopting them, is she a mother. Otherwise, she is a mother-to-be, and if she has an abortion, the "to be" will not be.

You have no stats on whether or not women are "living with someone", and you're wrong about ["less than half"] "...of all abortions are performed on women who are not married."

A site from your own PC camp says "83% unmarried". Do you need to be told that's more than half? These stats pretty much say SINGLE women.(unmarried, never married, divorced and widowed) all means single women. You have no stats on how many are "living with" a man, and guessing isn't proof. You can only go by what it states.

http://www.prochoice.org/about_abortion/facts...
"Marital Status

Most women getting abortions (83%) are unmarried; 67% have never married, and 16% are separated, divorced, or widowed.4 Married women are significantly less likely than unmarried women to resolve unintended pregnancies through abortion.6"

Bitner: "Only if the pregnant woman already has children, having given birth to them, or adopting them, is she a mother. Otherwise, she is a mother-to-be, and if she has an abortion, the "to be" will not be."

That's opinion, Toots, and not a fact. Biologically, she is a mother when pregnant, her child is in utero.

The PCers couldn't post the facts if they were on fire and posting the facts, with proof of facts, would be what's needed to put it out.

I've been asking ole ak, why they so easily condemn me of adultery over 12 years ago "That was part of my salvation story ",and yet has no problem with gay people having kids, nor fornicators having sex.
They still have failed to answer me.
People enjoy condeming others, but don't like their sins exposed.k
I've already agreed with the worse anyone would say about me, and then some.
Things that will send one to Hell.
Adultery-having sex with others, while married
Fornication -having sex with anyone, while not married to them
Stealing -taking anything that is not yours
Lying -self -explained
Many other things.
This is why all have sinned, and fallen short of the Glory of God.
JESUS CHRIST came -that ye may have life, and that eternal.
I have eternal life, AFTER I met Jesus over 12 years ago
Why else would I want to be on here telling all of my garbage?
I can easily be anyone I wish, but tell my true story, and others can believe it or not.
You can't prove that abortion is wrong. That's why you haven't done it. Either do it, or admit you can't. Be honest.

It's your opinion that there are babies in the womb. Science says otherwise. Any moral consequences involved are also your opinion.

Atheists can't be god--WE exist.

BTW--life and death decisions are made every day in hospitals all over the world.

Since when have you been here to discuss abortion, Toots? You've spent the majority of your time posting snipes at PLers. Now you want us to believe you want "an equal exchange of ideas"? Fat chance that would come from you, especially since you would need equal intelligence, knowledge of facts and sense to the PLers. You're at a disadvantage, and no ideas coming from you would be equal in those areas. All of you has the disadvantage, and the exchange of ideas with any of you would never be equal. Everything coming from you PC is ignorant, senseless and uninformed.

Interesting that you don't see your contradiction here. You've claimed that the bible doesn't mention abortion AND that your god condemns it. So, WHERE does he condemn it?
Yes, if you are going to claim that the bible condemns abortion, then it DOES matter if you prove it.
Sin is a man made concept. The fact that our cells eventually die and are not replaced, and our organ systems fail, is what brings death upon us all.
You now also need to prove that "fornication" is the number one reason for abortion, especially considering the number of married women, pregnant by their husbands, who also have abortions.
AND you now need to prove that ensoulment occurs at all, and if it does, when it occurs. You DO realize that there are religions out there that teach it doesn't occur until after birth, right?
Again, your religious beliefs only apply to you and those who share your religion anyway. Not everyone is Christian. Using your religion as an argument for those who are not part of it is useless. Others will go by their own religions, or if they are not religious, by their own ethics. No one is under any obligation to pay the least amount of attention to yours.
The bible doesn't have the word bible in it either, but it is real.

Even without religion, abortion stops a living process that would more then likely lead to and infant -toddler -kid -teen -adult.

They say it is legal for ALL women for Any reason.

Are you not very thankful, that ALL women don't take advantage of their rights?
Even if someone believes in the far ferched evolution theory, then they could easily see how some things are against the very nature of human existence.

Abortion is one of those things.

God even condems a man from having sex with his wife, if he leads her to believe she will have a child, and then he does something to protect himself from getting her pregnant.

We continue to make things legal that bring destruction upon us.

Someone can look at the history of many Great countries and groups of people who were destroyed from within.

People should be free to do whatever they will, but they must also take responsibility for their actions.

There are many verses about what God thinks about reproducing.

Now ak, seems to think I should be punished for my affair 12 years ago, in which a child was born. What do you think?
I've paid for my mistakes, and sone I have gotten away with, or atleast the punishment, this is why I needed a savior, and thankful I found Him.
Kids will have sex, and their raising has alot to do with it.o
If a kid doesn't have very much respect for themselves, then they will act that way.
Plus even those who do, at times make choices to have sex, but we must all live with our choices.
If a woman has had an abortion, then they can be saved and then forgiven.
They should not spend their life dwelling on it, but they should not pretend its ok to do, just to help themselves feel better about doing it.
If you feel abortion is wrong, you may have to work out your feelings about having had one. Most women who have abortions know what they are doing. They don't have anything to feel badly about.

The bible says nothing about abortion. We know that, in biblical times, life was considered to begin at the first breath, which is also when the soul entered the body. So we know getting rid of a pregnancy wasn't a sin.
