You didn't read how PP crunches the numbers in its entirety. The bottom line was one in three visited Planned Parenthood for a pregnancy test, and of those, a little under one in three had a Planned Parenthood abortion.
So what. I went to Planned Parenthood quite often when I was 18+ and had just moved to a big city. I knew that if I chose to have sex at some point, I DIDN'T want to get pregnant, so I needed reliable contraception to PREVENT that unwanted outcome. They charged very LITTLE money for that contraception, and I was very grateful to get it. I would have had to pay MORE anywhere else.

The Planned Parenthood facility I went to was terrific. The medical staff were very knowledgable and helpful, they answered all my questions on preventing unwanted pregnancy and STD's, and finally set me up with the contraception that I felt would work best for me. Thanks to Planned Parenthood and its wonderful staff, I never got pregnant before the time when I WANTED to become a mother, which wasn't until my 30's. I never got a sexually transmitted disease either. I went OFF birth control when I decided I was ready for the responsibility.

I strongly suggest that teens be sexFREE (free FROM sex) while in middle or high school. Even with the use of birth control and condoms, unwanted pregnancy is still possible. Must protection always be used if for any reason a teen girl or guy decides to have sex? ABSOLUTELY, and EVERY time too. Is that protection a GUARANTEE a girl will never get pregnant? Absolutely NOT. All birth control methods can and do fail occasionally. When BC fails and a pregnancy results, it is still the girl's/woman's decision whether to continue it or not.

Spreading the gospel goes back as far as 33 A.D.
Believers are in every part of the world - some still face persecution and/or have to worship in secret.
We just take our freedoms for granted.
Since the earliest gospel was written between 65 and 75 A.D., no, spreading it does not go "back as far as 33 A.D.".

Spreading the beliefs of the religion made sense when the religion was new, and the only form of real communication was word of mouth taken from place to place. Do you REALLY think anyone here, utilizing the internet, hasn't heard of Christianity, and doesn't know what it's about?

What point telling people something they already know, or have access to the knowledge if they want to learn it?

That's on the parents. And given the general level of ignorance in society regarding sex education, that's NOT shocking. When we have generations of ignorant young parents passing on their LACK of knowledge to their kids, its a recipe for disaster.
Exactly. Bristol Palin is only ONE famous example of these teen pregnancy disasters. I seriously doubt that Mommy Sarah taught Bristol anything other than "just say no." We all know how well THAT approach "works."

You mean like you used the federal gov't as a scapegoat for PP's accounting because their numbers aren't showing what you want these to show? And that's PP using more federal dollars on abortion when they aren't. Not too subtle on your part there, SB.

The verses were about a jealous husband, and the results of a wife who was cheating and lying, and the results of a wife who was not cheating nor lying.
You say the "NEGATIVE " side effects of the abortion happened to the woman who was lying and cheating.
Yet the innocent woman was cleared to become pregnant after her good name was cleared, so what you are trying to say the verses say makes absolutely no sense.
Even if those verses said, OR EVEN HINTED, that an abortion took place, then women today would have to be jewish, and go through all that was gone through in those verses to obtain an abortion. Even after their baby was aborted, their thigh would also rot, and they are to be shunned by all people, plus they must only be aborting a baby from an affair they had outside of their marriage.
And the entire point in bringing it up was to show the LAW, a LAW given by YHVH. The LAW of Jealousies. Because it was a LAW implemented by GOD, Himself, means HE gave one set of circumstances in which abortion was justified.

But speaking of accounting, sure would be nice if our government could do that with a budget.

Clearly, you're SO stuck on attack mode, you didn't notice the discussion had continuted, and here's a concept - it became CIVIL. You even copied the discussion here, and ignored the context.
I was responding to Doc's comments "But something like an artificial womb would change everything...and not just the concept of viability. Abortion would likely not even be an issue anymore.~
That had nothing to do with STO's hypothetical, except it came FROM that part of the discussion.
Doc and STO BOTH were speaking thoughtfully about what MIGHT happen, what COULD happen - and I contributed my view to his comment quoted above. What a concept huh? CIVIL dialogue.
THAT is what debate is about Lynne, not this bullshit you do.
Hey, Foo -- did you catch where lilLynne proclaimed she was not interested in having this discussion? That it was a hypothetical I brought up with Doc, blah, blah, blah.

These are your statements, lilLynne:
You wrote:
"Viability of an already born infant is also about POTENTIAL, and when doctors see a potential for that born infant to survive with medical help..."
In a prior post, you said, and I quoted you ver batim:
"That's not the same as viability of a newborn infant, because the newborn infant is already ~outside of the womb~, so it would be about potential of the newborn infant to survive without medical help."
^^^These two statements are contradictory.^^^
You can run from it and ignore the fact I exposed your confusion or stupidity from now on, but it won't change the fact that you contracidted yourself.
Now you're ignoring what you wrote, below:
lil Lily wrote:
<quoted text>
"If a [fetus] is viable, then once removed from it's NLS (the womb), and helped with ALS, it will be able to survive and continue to survive on ALS."
If a [born infant] is viable then, even if it's on ALS for a time, it will eventually be able to survive without it."
Look at your statement number 1. If a fetus is removed from the womb and helped with ALS it IS AN INFANT, BORN INFANT,
If a BORN INFANT is on ALS it is still a BORN INFANT.
There is NO DIFFERENCE
**********
You won't acknowledge your own statements. Ignore them and they will go away. Go on, now. No one expects honesty from you.

"It's PCers who made the claim about a fetus needing to "reach viability" once born, who backed themselves into a corner with their own ignorance."

STO? Wouldn't the phrase "reach viability" be defined as it is below in Big L's own words? That's how I've openly used it in this discussion. Because, as we know, if the newborn dies in spite of using ALS, then it had not reached viability.

How many teens would not have been strong enough to go this route? Many would have been so scared, their parents would have succeeded in coercing them to abort, because abortion is legal. It may be illegal toforce someone to abort, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. oit happens more often than PCers are willing to admit.

"A pregnant teen who sued her parents, claiming they were coercing her to have an abortion, will be able to give birth to her baby.

Attorneys representing the 16-year-old girl were granted a long-term injunction against the girl's parents in Texas family court on Monday, according to court documents.

The teen is 10 weeks pregnant and the injunction will last for the duration of her pregnancy.

As part of the order, the girl will be able to use her car to go to school, work and medical appointments. Her parents had taken away the use of the car as part of their effort to force an abortion, court papers stated.

The teen's parents will be liable for half of the hospital bill when she gives birth, unless she is married to the baby's 16-year-old father.

"We are extremely happy with the judge's decision today and we are very proud of our teenage client for being strong enough to stand against her parents to save her unborn child's life," Greg Terra, president of the Texas Center for Defense of Life, said in a blog post on the group's website.

Attorneys filed a lawsuit on the teen's behalf earlier this month arguing that her parents "are violating her federal constitutional rights to carry her child to term by coercing her to have an abortion with both verbal and physical threats and harassment."

The teen, identified in the lawsuit only as R.E.K. since she is a minor, was "beside herself" when she called the center for help, her lawyer Stephen Casey told ABCNews.com last week. The group claims it has previously represented teens in similar situations and won their cases.

"These girls are in a bind, particularly in a situation where their parents are forcing them to do something they don't want to do," Casey said. "Regardless of the [situation], that's her parents and she should expect support from them in this situation, not resentment and anger."

When the pregnancy was confirmed, the teenager's father allegedly "became extremely angry, was insistent that R.E.K. was not having the baby, and that the decision was not up to her, according to the lawsuit. He stated he was going to take her to have an abortion and that the decision was his, end of story."

The teen claimed in the lawsuit that her parents had taken away her phone, pulled her out of school, forced her to get two jobs and took away her car in an effort to "make her miserable so that she would give in to the coercion and have the abortion."' "

You're comparing a monthly-stipend system ith a claim-payment and/or grant system. So no, you know nothing about accounting. PP's books are regularly audited to ensure tax funding does not go to abortions.

There's not a strong enough message being sent to young women to take precautions and the consequences of not doing so.

The option of abortion has become the alternative to prevention.

I have no problem with weapons; they are tools. Our incursion into iraq had nothing to do with anything BUT oil. All the pilots of 9/11 were from saudi arabia--the country whose royal family had a business relationship with the bush family. Al qaeda had nothing to do with iraq or saddam. Saddam may have hated us, but he wasn't a threat.

BTW--halliburton, the recipient of a no-bid contract from former CEO cheney, went from near-bankruptcy to record profits, thanks to iraqi oil.

Be honest.
You don't think terrorism is a real threat? It's all a ploy to get more oil?
If the UK had not refined Iran's oil, it would have been useless.
Most of our oil comes from other parts of the world - mostly Canada, Latin America and Africa.

If there were more women using PP to prevent pregnancy instead of aborting the consequences after the fact, I would be all for taxpayer funding of PP.

There are no no guarantees in life. We have to live with every choice we make. Sometimes it means owing up to those choices and doing the right thing.

Young women have the option of adoption. That would be the right thing.
