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.
You don't get to decide what is "right" for anyone but yourself. EACH young woman will make the decision that is best for HER. Whether YOU approve of that decision or not is irrelevant.

Motherhood is still OPTIONAL, not required, even if a pregnancy happens. Don't like it? Tough.

It was Margaret Sanger who first introduced eugenics and abortion as an option in the U.S. primarily because of her observations of unwanted children in the black community and to "assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit."
Just a fact.
I thought you should read some of what Sanger HERSELF wrote. Here are a few quotes from her book WOMAN AND THE NEW RACE.

**********

Woman and the New Race, by Margaret Sanger, 1920

http://www.questia.com/library/1461039/woman-...


1. "Most women who belong to the workers' families have no accurate or reliable knowledge of contraceptives, and are, therefore, bringing children into the world so rapidly that they, their families and their class are overwhelmed with numbers."

2. "The deadly chain of misery is all too plain to anyone who takes the trouble to observe it. A woman of the working class marries and with her husband lives in a degree of comfort upon his earnings. Her household duties are not beyond her strength. Then the children begin to come -- one, two, three, four, possibly five or more. The earnings of the husband do not increase as the family rapidly does. Food, clothing and general comfort in the home grow less as the numbers of the family increase. The woman's work grows heavier, and her strength is less with each child. Possibly -- probably -- she has to go into a factory to add to her husband's earnings. There she toils, doing her housework at night. Her health goes, and the crowded conditions and lack of necessities in the home help to bring about disease -- especially tuberculosis. Under the circumstances, the woman's chances of recovering from each succeeding childbirth grow less. Less too are the chances of the child's surviving."

3. "As far back as 1900, I began to inquire of my associates what one could tell these worried women who asked constantly:'What can I do?' It is the voice of the elemental urge of woman -- it has always been there; and whether we have heeded it or neglected it, we have always heard it. Out of this cry came the birth control movement. Economic conditions have naturally made this elemental need more plain; sometimes they have lent a more desperate to woman's cry for freedom.... But the birth control movement as a movement for woman's basic freedom was born of that unceasing cry of the socially repressed, spiritually stifled woman who is constantly demanding:'what can I do to avoid more children?'

After a year's study in foreign countries for the purpose of supplementing the knowledge gained in my fourteen years as a nurse, I came back to the United States determined to open a clinic. I had decided that there could be no better way of demonstrating to the public the necessity of birth control and the welcome it would receive than by taking the knowledge of contraceptive methods directly to those who most needed it."

After I was saved, the size of my home bothered me, knowing how many used to raise many kids in a one or two room home.
Theu didn't have anything fancy, or a secound vac. Home, but they did have a large family, which can be a blessing at times.

As kids get older, they were taught to help out with chores and younger kids.

They may have had hard times, but they did have love, and many God that held them together.

We now have way more prosperity,then ever, yet it seems most families that are even still together are cold and distant.

Everyone does "their " own thing now.
Most will not even consider helping another, unless something is in it for them.

Our society is not getting better, but worse.
Abortions help contribute to this kind of society.

There is not much value on human life, but the same people who will fight tooth and nail to keep abortion alive and well on human babies, will throw you in jail, if you dare do a dog that way.

Whether folks believe in God or not, doesn't matter, if we don't wake up to what we are doing. He Will wake us up.

No more, then a mother cat who kills her young, and then eats it.
If looking into the lives of any wild animal as an example of who humans are, is crazy, or humans killing their young and eating them would be natural.
Well, we've got the killing part down pat.
And now you're trying to back away from your own stupidity.

Sorry, but it being found in nature does make it natural. You wanting to deny that means nothing.

**********
Woman and the New Race, by Margaret Sanger, 1920
http://www.questia.com/library/1461039/woman-...
1. "Most women who belong to the workers' families have no accurate or reliable knowledge of contraceptives, and are, therefore, bringing children into the world so rapidly that they, their families and their class are overwhelmed with numbers."
2. "The deadly chain of misery is all too plain to anyone who takes the trouble to observe it. A woman of the working class marries and with her husband lives in a degree of comfort upon his earnings. Her household duties are not beyond her strength. Then the children begin to come -- one, two, three, four, possibly five or more. The earnings of the husband do not increase as the family rapidly does. Food, clothing and general comfort in the home grow less as the numbers of the family increase. The woman's work grows heavier, and her strength is less with each child. Possibly -- probably -- she has to go into a factory to add to her husband's earnings. There she toils, doing her housework at night. Her health goes, and the crowded conditions and lack of necessities in the home help to bring about disease -- especially tuberculosis. Under the circumstances, the woman's chances of recovering from each succeeding childbirth grow less. Less too are the chances of the child's surviving."
3. "As far back as 1900, I began to inquire of my associates what one could tell these worried women who asked constantly:'What can I do?' It is the voice of the elemental urge of woman -- it has always been there; and whether we have heeded it or neglected it, we have always heard it. Out of this cry came the birth control movement. Economic conditions have naturally made this elemental need more plain; sometimes they have lent a more desperate to woman's cry for freedom.... But the birth control movement as a movement for woman's basic freedom was born of that unceasing cry of the socially repressed, spiritually stifled woman who is constantly demanding:'what can I do to avoid more children?'
After a year's study in foreign countries for the purpose of supplementing the knowledge gained in my fourteen years as a nurse, I came back to the United States determined to open a clinic. I had decided that there could be no better way of demonstrating to the public the necessity of birth control and the welcome it would receive than by taking the knowledge of contraceptive methods directly to those who most needed it."
Again, the irony is Sanger started Planned Parenthood in an effort to prevent unwanted children primarily among minorities through prevention and contraception so that abortion could be avoided altogether.

Yet, presently, 70% of black women are single mothers, many having multiple children with multiple absent fathers and a significant number on welfare.

And Planned Parenthood has become little more than abortion factories.

Apparently, Sanger's good intentions have backfired.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/viable

viable fetus: "b.(of a fetus) having reached such a stage of development as to be capable of living, under normal conditions, outside the uterus."

The word "reached" is in th definition of "iable fetus", meaning if a fetus is viable, it has already "reached" viability in utero.
It doesn't REACH viability once born.

PCers who claim that viability of a fetus is something that needs to be "reached" once born are BONEHEADS.

STO's insistence of continuing his stupidit about my supposedly contradicting myself, when I had misspoken, and corrected what I had misspoken at the time I misspoke in a certain post, just displays his childishness.

STO and Katie's insistence that viability of a fetus and viablility of a newborn infant are the same thing, just displays their senselessness, and lack of intelligence. Neither is as intelligent as they think they are, and neither has common sense. They've been proving it by not being able to understand a very simple and obvious difference between fetus and infant and not beinable to understand definitions established by the medical community and RvW.

They'll keep arguing and insisting that what I was saying confirmed what they had been saying about viability of a fetus, when what I confirmed is that they've been talking about viability of an INFANT. Not viability of a FETUS.

In displaying they don't get the distinction, and in trying to argue that viability of a fetus and viability of an infant are the same thing; they've been proving they're "boneheads". Bonehead is a "stupid person", and that's what the've proven they each are. "Stupid" means "lack of intelligence and common sense", which STO and Katie have both displayed on the topic of viability.

Both are too childish to admit they're wrong, even in light of every piece of factual information proving they're wrong. Of course, people need to have intelligence and sense to understand the information provided, which they don't.

It's not just about the woman when she creates another life. Prevention is too easily assessible.

Why does the law convict someone of double murder if they kill a pregnant woman but the same woman has carte blanche in killing the same life?

Have present-day women really become that self-centered?

Why isn't Planned Parenthood's mission and focus prevention? They certainly have the funds to get this message out.

Maybe this will force Texas into this century. In my state, a pregnant teen has sole decision-making powers over her own body regardless of what her parents want. That should be how it is in more states. But the rights and responsibilities come with teens being able to make their own medical decisions at an early age -- which includes mental health such as counseling. So it's not all rainbows and sunshine when the same teen can refuse treatment and/or refuse pregnancy against the parents' wishes. It does go both ways when these become law.
Not one word from you about how that story proved you wrong in claiming that "no one is forced to have an abortion in this country".

Even if it's illegal to force someone to have an abortion, teens are still being forced or coerced to have abortions. Some parents are using coercion, as that story gave an example of, to make it so the teen feels they have no other choice. Abortion being legal allows for that to happen more easily.
