So according to your logic, murder is ok? Human beings only have the right to live (maybe) when they are outside the womb, if they are perfect and not a burden?

You do know that planned parenthood does offer services that don't include abortion. In fact, the main function of planned parenthood is to provide reproductive healthcare to women at a low cost and also education on contraceptives to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

The contraceptives that are offered do abort. They are not made to prevent conception, but to prevent the egg from implanting in the womb once fertized which of course kills the baby.
While there may be a few things that they offer that are good, the majority of their services revolves around the promotion of sexual freedom and taking care of the results of that freedom by handing out abortive medications.
There are plenty of other organizations that offer the good services without needing Planned Parenthood.

Babies should not have to pay the price of murder just because politicians give money away so they can get elected. The answer is to elect statesmen who work to help people, and not give them welfare, which of course promotes the things you are speaking of.

i am sure you are right. but in reality you are the minority. the world wants everything handed to them without them earning it, and there are plenty of polititians willing to give it to them because in todays 'wimpy' society anything else would be against the 'supposed' rights of 'everyone'.

I agree.

It is sad that our country has gone from a generation who demonstrated pride in all that they did to the point of NOT wanting or desiring handouts, to a generation that is always looking for ways to get something for nothing. But the fact is that it is never something for nothing, because someone has to pay for it, whether it is us or future generations.

Sad too that we can't find a decent individual to reprensent us in State or Federal legislatures, who are not looking to make millions by becoming career politicians. But in many ways it is our own fault because when we vote we just push the button that has a familiar name, not caring what the person has or has not done for us - the people who hired them.

I am a 17 year old girl that goes to school in Dubuque, I am very confused on the way that people in my community are acting. I have people that are my age that are pregnant and wouldn't be pregnant if someone would have had the common sense to teach her about what it means to have "safe sex". And then on the other hand I have this organization that is opening up in Dubuque, which is a primarily Catholic community, but now this organization is trying to educate couples, even single parents on the options that they have in parenting. Whether they want to get birth control or help in raising their child(ren). I am not saying that i agree with abortion or think that I would ever choose that choice for me, but I do think that the people in this community dont have the right to tell others if they cant get an aborting because they dont believe in it.

Teenagers need reliable education from our community about having sex, and eventually babies, if we cant talk to any body about having sex, then we are going to be embarrassed and ashamed when it happens to us. In my opinion, I think the chances are higher of getting an abortion if we have to deal with our parents not knowing the correct way to talk to us about things.

I am so glad that my father is open and talks about things like sex and other information that teenagers need, because if he didn't, and I had no one to talk to, then I probably would be the teenager that got the abortion.

The Community needs to step up and think, if they do not want a organization in the city who is going to refer, not even do abortions, teach the youth about safer sex, and the responsibilities that come along with it, then they need to be the ones that are working together to make the teen birth rate go down. Help and encourage teenagers to have safer sex. And they need to be more considerate of teenagers that have babies, because if they are not helping them get through this hard time then they dont deserve to judge.

thank you...

Jessica,
Thank you so much for your openness concerning a very important subject. You are correct, that there needs to be some venue in which individuals can get the truth about sex and its consequences. I don't know about other preachers in town, but I certainly am open to talking to anyone about 'safe sex.'
To my knowledge, there are several organizations in Dubuque that have assisted women over the years with parenting, adoption, etc.
The problem with Planned Parenthood, is that they are a wolf in disguise. They do not care one whit about assisting parents, or women with their babies, their goal is to get rid of the baby anyway they can. When a couple comes to their office, they divide them into two separate rooms,(divide and conquer), and then they go to work convincing the separated couple that the best thing for their family is to abort. More times than not, they succeed.
As for training for safe sex - their two web sites, which I'm sure you are aware of - are geared toward training anyone about multiple partners, homosexuality, group sex, porn, etc. etc.
Planned Parenthood is NOT the innocent organization they would like us to think they are.
I don't know if you believe in God or not, or whether you have a religious background, but the Word of God tells us that sex is to be reserved for marriage. That is only God approved place for sex. Between one man and one woman for life. It is sad that our society does not honor God's wishes, divorcing many times for any reason, swinging, committing adultery, but that does not negate the fact that they are sinning by doing so and will lose their souls.
God does not allow sex outside of marriage, it is referred to as fornication, and we are told that all fornicators will not go to heaven (1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
Abortion is wrong, because is the murder of an innocent life. No individual has the right to take the life of another human being - whether that life is hours old or years old - it is still a life that came from God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7).
What we have that is creating all the division, is two totally different ideologies. One (Planned Parenthood) according to the wisdom of men, and the other according to the wisdom of God. Since this is God's world, and we are His creation, then we must go by God's will.
thanks again, and please search the Scriptures to find your answers for life's decisions.

WOW.
I do NOT believe there are Many if ANY girls 14 and up that do not know where babies come from. Or how to have "safe sex"

Planned Parenthood is an ABORTION FACTORY plain and simple. To try to say otherwise is double speak. They do the other to make it OK to be in a community and to get MILLIONS of Federal Dollars.

But they make MANY, MANY Millions on abortion.
Do a little GOOGLE Search and see the things they have been caught doing.

Coaching 13 year old girls NOT to admit that their 25 year old boyfriend got them Pregnant - because then they woudl have to report it.

Accepting & Encouraging Donations from people, earmarked to give Black Girls abortions, because there are too many of them.

What happens to a BABY that is BORN - I means survives an Abortion in a Planned Parenthood clinic?
It is thrown on the waste pile and allowed to slowly die.(of course, this action is defended by Barack Obama, so it must be ok)

You people really need to mind your own business. I don't condone abortion, but it isn't my place (or anybody elses place) to tell somebody what they can and can't do.

Just because your religion forbids abortion doesn't mean that nobody else can get one! If you and you don't approve, don't fucking do it. Period. Stop your wining.

No need to be crude!

Isn't it interesting that those who like to condemn others for judging, judge the ones they think should not judge???? How hypocritical!
If you don't like it, don't read the posts.

You DO condone Abortion!

I don't condone robbing banks or killing your wife but it isn't my place (or anybody elses) place to tell somebody what they can and can't do.
How is this any different??? You are killing babies - Millions of them - for convenience more than anything.

I am very proud to be a Christian. BUT... I was against abortion LONG before I was a Christian. I am from Dubuque and hate to see them go this direction!

Yes, Andy is like millions of other people who like to pretend that they are tolerant, but when others air their opinions and even facts against a subject, then their true nature comes out.

Abortion period is a sin. It is the murder of innocent human lives. Planned Parenthood here in Dubuque is trying to convince everyone that they don't do abortions here - yet they hand out contraceptives like they are candy - which are abortifactants. In other words, they are designed to abort babies, not prevent babies!

Hey kids, eat, sleep, and be merry for tomorrow we may die!

Abortions should be legal and available if completely unsupported by taxpayer dollars.

This is nothing but an emotional issue.

I welcome the American values of personal liberty Planned Parenthood brings to the community.

Planned parenthood provides other services besides abortions uncluding adoption services as well as STD screeing and cancer screeings overall abortions are only about 3% to 5% of the overall amount of service provided. while abortion is not something i would do i do not believe I have the right ro tell anyone else what they can and cannot do with thier own bodies. Those ofyou that are saying that it is simply and "abortion factory: need to get off your high horse and actually do a little research instead of just being blind and seeing what you want to see.
