Abortions end pregnancies. Non-implanted fertilized eggs do not constitute a pregnancy. Therefore, medications which prevent implantation are not abortions. These are basic definitions. You do not get to alter them for your convenience.

Furthermore, there is no positive evidence that drugs like emergency contraception alter the endometrial lining in order to prevent implantation. Regular hormonal birth control pills do cause a change, but it is not known if it is sufficient to prevent implantation.

I'm so strongly pro-vaccinate, that I think that anyone that disagrees with me in that area is a moron. Do you need me to repeat that? And ya, regarding vaccines, I have done a lot of research.... and I would go more in-depth if this were the place to do so, but it's not.
Nor the fact that I'm very pro-death penalty, and I sure wish Canada would bring that back, and I don't care if I have to pay a little bit more in taxes to axe a mother effer. I have no problem with that. And the people that don't agree with the Death penalty - Morons.
Are they all around morons? No. Just morons in that area.... are we clear sassy.... I ASKED IF WE WERE CLEAR! hahahahhahahhhah I'm pro-choice, pro-vaccine, and pro-death penalty.
I suppose you will get no smack-down for calling people morons and judging others who don't agree with you now that you admitted being pro-choice. Apparently,ONLY prolifers are not allowed to judge or call people morons. ALL the trolling proaborts hide in the shadows and patiently await ANY prolifer who will not show love and compassion to all even if they disagree with them.

I disagree with you about quite a few things and would love to debate things peacefully.. I don't think that people are morons who disagree with me. I wish people would educate themselves on the pros and cons of different issue to make a fair judgement on the issues instead of being forced fed something and taking it at face value.

I DO however,think that people are evil if they support killing their own child/fetus/offspring while developing in the womb as "choice". There is a difference. Not ONE proabort person would hesitate to call me out on calling someone evil but I betchaa a million dollars that they would not hesitate to call Susan Smith or a woman who killed her seconds old newborn evil.

See the hypocriscy that I despise so passionately?

At conception,a NEW,UNIQUE human life is created. The fertilized egg(which is your biological child/offspring)will travel towards the womb to receive nourishment. It will then travel towards the birth canal where it will exit. Once born,it will seek nourishment once again from your breasts.

In other words,location *OF* that human doesn't make them unhuman. That human might even implant on the fallopian tubes. The woman is pregnant. We find out early on(earlier than EVER before)that we are pregnant due to our hormonal change.

Abortion ends the life of the fertilized egg regardless of its location whether that abortion is spontanous or induced.

That is not the definition of an abortion. If you believe actions which prevent implantation of a fertilized egg are immoral, that's your opinion, but to call it abortion is simply false.

Can you do me a favor and answer to questions? Kthanks.
1. where did you get this info from? I am sure that you don't know the majority of PC so I am sure you looked it up. Cite your sources please.
2. personally,why is it that you want or better yet-care,that abortion decrease? what does it have to do with you? what is wrong with abortion that "the so called majority" want to see it decrease?
According to most here from your side,abortion is a moral choice,but it is safer than pregnancy. So,please explain.
Ah, my darling "Sassafrass," how did I "know" I'd not get through a couple of posts without a loving missive from you...?
Dearest, I can't even begin to tell you just how much I haven't missed you!
I'll spare you a moment of my time, and bandwidth--though, truly, you're not worth either--to say once again, you've asked these questions ad-nauseum, and they've been answered ad-nauseum--by myself and several others.
Yes, I'm well aware that no answer that anyone who disagrees with you philosophically, spiritually, or, even logically is in any way, shape, or form going to have any chance of swaying your opinion from where it currently is.
You'll dismiss actual citations from the CDC, the AMA, PP, or any other reputable source in favor of Catholic Life News, or Life-Site-News as being more credible for justifying your system of beliefs.
Truth be told, I'm finally at the point where I have to concede that the only one who looks more idiotic than the idiot is the one who keeps on arguing with them.
Therefore, I think I'm going to have to simply bypass your long-winded nonsensical posts for the foreseeable future.

Yes, I know, you're understandably "crushed," but, I daresay you'll get over it.

Best,
John.

Not abortions, Obamacare includes coverage of abortifacients; that's what the Hobby Lobby case was about.

Obamacare forces gays and lesbians in health insurance pools, to pay for abortifacient for straight couples.

False. None of the drugs at issue in the Hobby Lobby case were abortifacients. Hobby Lobby held the false belief that they were, but they were not.

The SCOTUS ruled that it doesn't even matter if the belief is false; it's still protected.

No, we had massive amounts of people uninsured, under-insured, or unable to be insured.

It's the compromise the SCOTUS came up with; it's not perfect (perfection would be the government having no say at all in the matter) but it acknowledges certain philosophical issues regarding viability.

A woman who doesn't discover they are pregnant until after viability obviously has other health issues or mental issues that need to be examined.

There are woman who find out that they are pregnant late in the pregnancy for the first time. There are woman who may find themselves in a desperate situation and feel that abortion is best for them.
There are women who abort their husband or bf's child after they find out that they've been unfaithful.
Yet,.......they can't electively abort and MOST of you who consider yourselves in favor of a woman choosing for her "body",her pregnancy,are in agreence. They suddenly want her fetus to have MORE rights then she does.
SOMEONE explain please. Insults not required.

Untrue.
Over half of recorded abortions done where done on woman who claimed to have used bc. The rest didn't which shows that access to birth control doesn't significantly reduce unwanted pregancies.
Outlaw abortion and you will see how QUICKLY birth control is used AND when used,used properly which CLEARLY shows the irresponsible,immature actions on behalf of those who want to risk pregnancy which will end up the killing their child for an orgasm.
Abstain when fertile to avoid pregnancy???? PFFFT...unHEARD of. Simply impossible. Noooo way!!! Preventive care just seems unrealistic these days. Why would it when abortion is available. We can justify our out of control actions today and play victim of our circumstances and womanhood.

It's probably best that I'm not a woman, because if I were going to a clinic and some jerk tried to talk me out of it, I'd give them one warning to get away. If they didn't, I'd mace them or kick them in whatever sensitive spot I had access to. You cretins need to mind your own business.

Maybe we should have groups interfering with people going to church, trying to show them there is a better way?

Typical spoon fed proabortion movements puppet. Her "doctors appointment" is to kill her child. No prolifer is trying to "coerce her into her camp",what they ARE doing is offering her HELP which no proabort will. Most young girls and women going into the clinics are abandoned or coerced into aborting their child. These girls are scared and alone. Vulnerabiility is lures them into the money-making,deceptive abortion mill.
I've talked to many. I have never,nor have I ever seen any prolifer yell or attack any woman or young girl. We offer help ...alternative that they were NEVER told of by the proabortion people who claim to care. Interesting huh?
I give food,clothing and money to the poor. I can't take ALL the poor in my home so I do what I can. YOU think that I am not legit because of that?
""""" """They pray and pray for the unborn and then when a child is born out of wedlock and the wrong color, then they reject them.
They get all ticked off with welfare mothers and yet, these are the mothers who did not abort"""" """""
Typical proabort puppet who got spoonfed lies and then repeats them.
What I would like to see is the males who used and dumped these pregnant women standing up and taking care of their children. I would like to see better yet,the women EMPOWERING themselves by learning to respect themselves therefore leading to men not having the opportunity to use them for sex and then dump them after they impregnant them.

Now,personally I am against artificial birth control,but I know how to abstain when I needed to for the purpose of avoiding pregnancy. That,my dear,is not being naive,that is being smart and realistic.
I doubt women are having sex 24/7/365 days a year so they CAN abstain when fertile and hump away like freakin rabbits the rest of the month. They won't die last time I checked.
Nah,they will risk it and then cry victim of their own stupidity meanwhile the abortion companies make a fortune off keeping women down. Come ON women,wake up,use your brains.

The litmus test on being pro- or anti-choice really isn't about personal philosophy; many PC'ers would never have an abortion. The real t est is whether you believe the law should keep women from aborting electively. I personally believe only the pregnant woman can decide if the risks outweigh the result, certainly not some bureaucrat who will never face the choice.

<quoted text>Sorry, you can think what you want about me. Your opinion of me doesn't really matter (but I will take out the time, and give you a response)
After 14 or so weeks - max 16, that ship has sailed to get an elective abortion (that's my opinion) and after that, unless there is a medical concern regarding the pregnancy/woman, my opinion is too bad, maybe next time you can make the cut off date. So to answer your question, I support elective abortions until 14 weeks. There, there ya go. Run with that. Is it gray? Yup. Sorry.
If my opinion has you thinking I'm a coward, then I'm a coward. okay.
But seriously, out of most the people here, my opinion means squat. I can't do anything about your laws, I can't vote for anyone regarding this issue. You can change my opinion, and lets say you do... so what? The PC are already in power here, and they're Canada's best chance at changing the laws regarding abortion, but you know what? That's never gonna happen. Not in the near future anyways.... The Canadian Health Care pays for ALL abortions, regardless how long the woman has been pregnant (including LTA)
Talking both sides of the mouth? Sure, if that's what my opinion is, then again, okay.
And yup, I think they're a loony if aborting a baby in the 8th month just because, and they're okay with that... total loony. Just the same as I think a person trying to stand in the way of a woman getting an abortion or abortion pill is a loony when it's done shorty after they find out the news that they are pregnant.... total loony. So what?

The list of drugs that could cause a miscarriage is quite long, but the ones HL dislike aren't among them. What they could do is prevent implantation, which means they prevent pregnancy, not terminate it. Millions of fertilized eggs get sloughed off every year just through normal menstruation.

About 75% of all fertilized eggs never implant. That makes your god the ultimate abortionist by your standards.

In reality, pregnancy begins only after successful implantation; an egg that fails to implant (regardless of cause) is not aborted or miscarried by definition.
