I agree on the state's rights. And I think the state's try with restriction such as parental notification barring incest. And on viability issues. But on something so nation changing it should have been something we all had a say in..IMO
I still think the numbers way too high for this day and age of contraception . And I feel it lets men off the hook and is just nit what most if us thought would come of the women's rights movement.
And yes I believe this child in the womb is a child of God as much as the mom given to her for safe keeping
I believe they a 're with God now
Personally for me it's such an irreversible act..I think it harms women in the long run. She is ending the life her own offspring. some women never recover from that. Some do.
We should have had a say in this with votes
"But on something so nation changing it should have been something we all had a say in..IMO"

Yet that is exactly what Roe v Wade does; one pregnant woman at a time determines (has her say in) the outcome of her own pregnancy. Since there are about 4M live births a year over 800K annual abortions, it's apparent the majority of pregnant women choose to remain pregnant.

Your above sentence can be taken another way, too. It can be read that you'd have wanted the public (the nosy parkers of the neighborhoods) to determine other women's pregnancies. You'd have wanted the states to determine other women's pregnancies. Which is what they were doing prior to Roe v Wade after criminalizing it in the 1800s.

Yes, BUT sperm is only sperm on its own. The egg same thing. Yet when the two combine, and is placed in the womb, it now is a New,unique life, is it not? It to will die, either in the womb or 90 years after leaving the womb, but having it destroyed while it is in the womb, is UnGodly, and or Un natural, is it not one or the other, or both? Imo
What? If a fertilized egg implants, it's a pregnancy. You know, the medical condition the woman endures throughout gestation? If the fetus makes it through delivery, he/she's a newborn. I'm too tired to try to decipher the rest of your words. Sorry.

Agree with you Katie it's a pregnancy. And that pregnancy is a brand new life. The woman is then a mother. Her body changes to nurture new life..her child's.
I don't agree we are mothers until the baby is born. I've known women who've experienced spontaneous abortions, but no live births. They do not consider themselves mothers. Even though SassyJM insists they're mothers of dead children, neither they nor I agree with that sentiment.

<quoted text>Thank you. I've been trying very hard to advance this same view here, for as long as I've been here.
I realize the SCPL is trying very hard to shape this debate around 'the little babies'....but in reality, it's all about curtailing and controlling the sex lives and reproductive choices of women. Always has been.
They don't care what those little babies' quality of life is, and what's more, the only fertilized eggs they give a rat's hind portion about are the ones in a uterus.
The hypocrisy and dishonesty is palpable when you talk about the disposal of extraneous embryos from IVF, and all you get is crickets.
But that does help to make it obvious what the real agenda is.
Petri dishes are just not as fun to control.
Agree, they obviously don't care about the babies born and the resulting children who need food, a roof over their heads, clothing, school supplies, etc. Will go a step further in their ability to us pregnancy as a punishment, a means to get a "wayward" girl to confess her sins, throw money in the collection plate, and bring another in for the headcount in the house of worship.

I was speaking in terms of the law. ROE was a huge nation splitting decision. Think it should have gone to the states.

I doubt they envisioned even in SCOTUS 50 million plus little lives lost. I know you see it as each woman...And I do also.

Women's movement was about equality for us. I am all for that and have been for decades. But with that comes responsibility. The numbers don't bear out that it's being used. Even if contraception fails sometimes..it's not possibly that unreliable.

SOrry but I see this as a poor outcome of the movement.IMHO

It was supposed to uplift us. IMO 50 million gone forever Does just the opposite. Contraception was the big equalizer..But it's killing our own offspring that has come to define us. I find that very sad for women.

Rose, the decision of Roe v Wade was not about the women's movement.

The long, drawn out history of it goes back to when it was criminalized in the 1800s. Mostly due to physicians wanting to learn about women's anatomy and reproductive systems/cycles. They really hadn't had much of a clue because the midwives and sisters, moms and aunts, and other females handled it all. Back in the 1800s, physicians didn't even realize a woman could orgasm like a man.

It was also physicians, a hundred years later, who began pushing for its legalization prior to Roe v Wade being decided. Even before Roe was decided there were a handful of states where abortion was already legal. Wealthy women could travel from one state to another and receive a safe, sterile abortion but the majority of women could not. They remained pregnant, like NM did, or they went to butchers like Gosnell.

Well yuk on the experimentation for sure alternatives criminal. And thanks for the history.
But I lived through most of the Changes. abortion was not a part of the vocabulary. Maybe a small percentage had them ..But they had almost NOTHING at all to keep us from conceiving in the first place. And we had our babies and survived. We did not sacrifice a human life to do it.

And there was still in the sixties Not Much knowledge to be had. Unless docs had done surgeries during pregnancy..even they had very little idea what was happening stage by stage on a woman.

I think someplace in my home I still have Life magazine showing the first pictures from the womb. That was around 72'

The pill WAS seen as the great equalizer and I thought PP was a great organization pioneering in this miracle.

But then the focus became the legalization of abortion and even today women use.it for birth control.
To me ..who does believe life sacred..this is just crazy when so much else is available.

But on the women's rights issuer. It seems to be the battle cry today for groups like Naral etc. So it is part of it. And the numbers Do reflect a lack of responsibility. Face it. We expect that from men in general..sorry guys. But it's the women who usually have to deal. And so many are not. IMO

And I still think the states and the people should have had a vote.because this has had such a dividing effect on the country.

You are wrong , of course because you don't and won't find those pro aborts wrong and if yuou really are rosesez, well, you are a lukewarm Christian because you can tell the culture of death permeates their posts. Abortion is a filthy sick horrendous evil and you can't be nicey nicey. You post, i'm gonna let God judge them, not I. There is a very bad sin for not getting involved and afraid to speak the truth. The Pope has spoken about this several times, even Blessed Pope John Paul II did. Yet you won't say anything to Foo for calling me the *c* word or any other nasty word or curse. This is why you are pegged. You go along with them and complain about us. Blaspheme? NO, but you have. You have posted anti-Catholic lies. You said falsehoods about the Church Christ founded.
The ravings of a self-righteous, delusional, hypocritical faux-Christian.

You're petulant and whiney, and your attempts to control Rose are sickening. How easily you forget some of the vile and monstrous posts you've written. Remember wishing demons would rape someone's grandkids? Yeah, you're pretty sick in the head, and this current breakdown of yours is just more proof you shouldn't be walking free in society. Is this what your church does to you? Turns you into a sick, demented, delusional control-freak stalker? You're simply a horrible and sick woman.

Get some help.

Oh, get the stick out of your ass, Control Freak. Many is the time YOU'VE been off topic. Mind your own business, you hatefilled hag, no one was talking to you.
