Since it's proven impossible, either legally or morally, to stop girls/women from having sex, what do those who oppose abortion think of this study?

You think that it is impossible for someone not to have sex before they are married?
Really?

You think abstinence programs are morally wrong?

Someone held a gun to your head and made you have an abortion? You had to have one, or did you choose to have one?

Media: It’s Only Murder if She Wanted the Baby

by Susan Michelle Tyrrell

A tragedy in Brooklyn Saturday reminds us again of what even the most pro-abortion rights advocates know is true: an unborn baby is a baby.

Vindalee Smith, 38, was eight months pregnant when she was found dead, the day before she was supposed to be married. This is tragic enough in itself but the reality of the tragedy was found in words in the MSNBC report:

It wasn’t clear how long she’d been dead before the body was discovered. Her baby boy did not survive.

Her baby boy. Not her fetus. Why? Because she was 8 months along? Of course not. It’s legal to abort at 8 months in most states. It takes certain criteria, but it can be done easier than most people think. So if the story was reporting on abortion, it’s pretty likely the report would be on the fetus. But it’s a baby because we have made killing a choice. When a woman decides she wants it, it is no longer a fetus but a baby. It’s the most obvious and blatant double-mindedness that exists in our society. It literally says “this thing in me becomes what I want it to be.” We become little gods to play big God. Ms. Smith was tragically killed so it was a baby. It was a double murder, and most likely how the assailant will be charged if he or she is caught.

What struck me most deeply was the statement that one of her friends made to the media:

“I can’t even begin to imagine who would want to do that. It would be the devil, to kill a woman with a child in her stomach. They killed two people.”

And that, my friends, is the bottom line right there. Killing a woman with a child in her stomach is the devil—and killing an innocent child in anyone’s stomach is the devil. That very act is one devised by the devil himself, which has been twisted into deceit of people who would never think they were serving the god of darkness and death, but every abortion is a praise to the devil, usually unbeknownst to the woman who has believed the lie of the culture. It’s a cause for rejoicing in hell because one more life has been taken, more innocent blood has been shed, and the desire of God has been thwarted for the life taken, and the ones who sadly believed it was okay to take it.

Sometimes the obvious truth is right before our eyes in secular media. This story struck me more powerfully than any classic pro-life prose. A woman killed, and her baby the other victim. The news calls it a baby. Her friend says only the devil could do such a thing. And all across the same city, the abortion rate is almost twice that of the national abortion rate, with over 40% of all pregnancies ending in abortion.

We call one murder and the other choice. What we really mean is “it’s only a baby when I want it to be.” The “right to choose” is moral relativism at its worst.

The tragedy people feel over the brutal murder of this precious woman and her unborn child is the tragedy we ought to feel over every unborn child sacrificed to murder each day in our nation. And many do. Family members of some of these aborted babies feel the loss of a child, grandchild, a niece or nephew, when a woman chooses to abort. People grieve an aborted baby because like Ms. Smith’s baby, it’s a dead baby.

In reality, it’s no different. In both, a baby brutally dies. It’s just that sometimes we arrest a person for the murder and other times we call it “women’s health.”

Is the entire Republican party bent out of shape over females?

"...Richard Mourdock may be the new Todd Akin.

Mourdock, the Republican Senate nominee in Indiana, said at a debate Tuesday that pregnancy that results from rape can be "something that God intended to happen," The Washington Post reports. Democrats have already pounced, comparing Mourdock to Todd Akin, the Missouri Republican Senate candidate who made famous the term "legitimate rape"...."

I was in my early teens when my mother told me that a predecessor fetus and a successor fetus had been surgically removed, thus making me an older brother rather than a forgotten whoosh….

And I’ve since become the father of several fetuses, three of which, or perhaps I had better say three of whom, became reasonably delightful children. There was a time, it seemed, when I couldn’t sneeze on a woman without becoming a potential father….

[A]t least once I found myself in a clinic while “products of conception” were efficiently vacuumed away. I can distinctly remember thinking, on the last such occasion, that under no persuasion of any kind would I ever allow myself to be present at such a moment again.
In the brisk paragraphs above, you will note that I have semiconsciously employed the terms “birthplace,”“grave,” and “conceivable.” This idiom of this argument is basic and elemental. It’s about the essentials. Thus, the justification proposed by the “right” for its intrusiveness is that the fetus is also an autonomous individual, and that society cannot decently permit one body (or soul) to be owned or disposed of by another….

There was a time when the feminist movement replied to this with militant indignation. What “individual”? What “person”? The most famous title of the period – Our Bodies, Ourselves – captures the tone to perfection. If we need to remove an appendix or a tumor from our own personal spaces, then it’s nobody else’s g**d*** business. I used to cringe when I heard this, not so much because in the moral sense fetuses aren’t to be compared to appendixes, let alone tumors, but because it is obvious nonsense from the biological and embryological points of view. Babies come from where they come from.

The diagram of a vacuum-suction abortion in Our Bodies, Ourselves gave the female anatomy in some detail but showed only a void inside the uterus. This perhaps unintended concession to queasiness has since become more noticeable as a consequence of advances in embryology, and by the simple experience of the enhanced sonogram. Women who have gazed at the early heartbeat inside themselves now have some difficulty, shall we say, in ranking the experience with the planned excision of a polyp….

That the most partially formed human embryo is both human and alive has now been confirmed, in an especially vivid sense, by the new debate over stem-cell research and the bioethics of cloning. If an ailing or elderly person can be granted a new lease on life by a transfusion of this cellular material, then it is obviously not random organic matter. The original embryonic “blastocyst” may be a clump of 64 to 200 cells that is only five days old. But all of us began our important careers in that form, and every needful encoding for life is already present in the apparently inchoate. We are the first generation to have to confront this as a certain knowledge.

Rather than deal with the reality that we are talking about human life, you would go to this length to promote a barbaric practice?
By the way, Christopher Hitchens was an avowed athiest.
