When over 3000 women a day find themselves pregnant, and not wanting to be doesn't bother you, since you have a legal "fix" for their "problem",then perhaps you should question just how much about the women you care, verses just wanting a power trip you accuse so many of wanting.
My beliefs only effect me.
I have always said people can do, and will do whatever they wish.
People can and do smoke meth, crack, etc. Just becouse many do it, doesn't mean it should be legal.
I believe you and others truly want power over women.
You think these 3000 women you claim who do not wish to be pregnant will suddenly wish to be because you limit their choice?
You want to limit choice and consider it caring?
You want women to bear unwanted pregnancies and consider that caring about women?
How does allowing choice equate to a power trip?
How does disallowing choice by law do to an archaic misogynistic belief system equate to a non-power trip?
If your beliefs only effect you why do you pound so many ears with your beliefs? What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

Sorry, you are not making any sense.

Did your village let you out? Drugs aren't illegal because many ppl do drugs. Drugs are illegal because of the harmful impact they have on society. Abortion has no harmful impact on society.

"I believe you and others truly want power over women."

Kindly explain to me how, exactly, wanting women to be able to make their own choice regarding their own uterus and pregnancy, based upon their own circumstances and moral code, and without interference from others, wanting "power over them"?

Drugs are illegal because it's extremely profitable to keep them that way...particularly marijuana, for possession of which many, many non-violent people are made criminals, and keep increasingly privatized prisons in business. Our government subsidizes Cartels in this manner as well. The pharmaceutical industry also reaps huge benefits from the criminalization of a common weed - which has numerous medicinal uses, and can be grown in any climate, in nearly any soil, and with minimal effort, by nearly anyone.

Legalization would put a huge dent in the bottom lines of several industries.

And don't even get me started on hemp, which could replace fossil fuels, many textiles, and lumber out the wazoo. It remains illegal to cultivate in the US for this reason...NOT because it's a relative of cannabis.

What bothers me, are the REASONS so many women don't want to be pregnant. Poverty, illness, poor relationships with the 'daddies', risk of death the 3rd highest of any industrialized nation during gestation and birth.

Perhaps we should focus on those, instead of removing women's civil right to self defense, in an effort to reduce the number of abortions.

'''Abortion has no harmful impact on society""" "

Your opinion.

Abortion kills the woman child/flesh and blood while developing in the womb. That in itself is a tragedy when a mom could have her child killed as choice because he doesnt want him/her. It' evil. It therefore has a GREAT effect and harm on society. There are many side effect to the woman state of mental and emotional health aswell as her physical health,that don't seem to concern you.

BTW....marijuana has become legal,so I suppose they aren't a harmful as you think they are? Of course it is -legal or not. Alcohol is legal as well,and I suppoe that doesn't have a harmful impact on society,in your mind?

I bet that the numbers wouldn't be at 3,000 if abortion wasn't legal. I bet these women would think twice about jumping in the sack without considering the consequences of their actions. I bet they wouldn't be so irresponsible. I bet they would have to use their brains and abstain when they are fertile or think twice about wanting instant gratifications without consequences.

ALL RvW did was allow selfish women to not care about anyone but themselves. Their priorities are ME ME ME and kill their baby if they are unwanted.

Women need to empower themselves with some self control. Stop allowing themselves to be used for sex as single women. Seem like MOST abortions are done on single women after being used. Take a look at the single mothers raising their children with no man present. It's really sad that women don't respect themselves e&#326;ough to be used.

But,you don't seem to care about that as long as they can kill their unwanted child. Does it make you feel powerful to be able to end your childs life?

If a woman conceives her child,then that means that her child exists and has right to her/his life. That woman has an obligation to put her child first from that moment on.

Yes, Morgana,it is what we Mothers do-put their child first and protect that child. We owe it to our children. If we for some reason can't "mother" that child,then we adopt that child out,not kill them like proaborts do or people like Susan Smith or Casey Anthony.

Please stop pretending you give a shit about women with unwanted pregnancies.

All you care about is whether or not they subject themselves to your screwed up morality - if they're not properly guilted and shamed, you'd just as soon they have botched abortions.

I know it, you know it, and your misogynist god knows it too.

As you so eloquently stated my darling "Sassafrass..." "Your Opinion."

Yes, we're all aware that your system of beliefs considers this to be an act of "supreme evil" but, as per the structure of our society, our legal system and constitutional rights, you are, unfortunately--for you--unable to force those of us who don't happen to subscribe to your system of beliefs to live by them--yet.
BTW, the "legalization" of marijuana is a state-by-state affair to date, as is the "legalization" of SSM. Yeah the Federal Government can step in at any time and decide that this is "illegal" as per Federal Law.
As a poster who's perceived as a "Conservative Christian," who presumably wants fewer governmental intrusions in her life, which would you prefer;
1. A Federal ban on abortion?
2. A Federal ban on marijuana?
*3. A Federal/Constitutional ban on Same Sex Marriage?
4. A Federal ban on "Religious Impositions--including Sharia Law?"
5. No Federal authority granted to any of the above?

*The only reason I deemed it necessary to include "Constitutional" to choice #3 was because of the "DOMA," which sought to define--by way of the U.S. constitution--marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

It seems to me, that we all tell our beliefs everyday here, so what makes yours more important?

Aka says abortion has no neg side effects, but one only need to look at the name of this thread to know better.

My point is you and others say you stand for choice, but have no problem when no one really had a choice in the very important matter of legalized abortion.

Many reasons a pregnancy can make life tough, so they shouldn't get pregnant.
