Not a shock...most of Hollyweird is pro choice. As for her comment about going back to clothes hangers, well why don't people learn to use birth control? Then there wouldn't be a need to kill a baby. Why is this concept so difficult to grasp?

Use protection when you are unwilling and/or unable to care for a child should you become pregnant. This is NOT rocket science people.

Good plan except for a few things:
1. No birth control is 100% effective
2. Complications can happen
3. Everyone still retains the rights to their own body (unless you would like all rights to your body taken away)
4. Peoples own personal medical decisions are none of your business.

You mean TWO people's medical decisions. No, birth control is not 100% effective, but double protection can be. Why doesn't obama's health care plan provide birth control for anyone who needs it? Good idea if you ask me.

A woman who is pregnant makes the decisions.. There is no other person that makes the final decision.

A doctor can advise. A SO/husband/lover can offer an opinion.

But the woman is the one pregnant and it her decision whether the pregnancy proceeds and in what manner.

Actually, it's not her decision, but man has made it possible for her to have a decision to make. I can't imagine how abortion doctors live with themselves after what they do all day.

It took me forever to find an ob/gyn who did NOT perform these atrocities. I absolutely adore her, she is pro life and proud of it. Posters hang all over her office. She's the best!

I agree that birth control should be provided to whomever needs it. And nope I mean it is only ONE persons medical decision, the fetus is inside of the woman it is only HER choice if it gets to stay there and use her body.

It doesn't matter what the circumstance of the pregnancy is.. it is her decision in what manner or if the pregnancy is to continue at all.

Here is Roe V Wade
http://www.tourolaw.edu/patch/Roe/

"3. State criminal abortion laws, like those involved here, that except from criminality only a life-saving procedure on the mother's behalf without regard to the stage of her pregnancy and other interests involved violate the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, which protects against state action the right to privacy, including a woman's qualified right to terminate her pregnancy. Though the State cannot override that right, it has legitimate interests in protecting both the pregnant woman's health and the potentiality of human life, each of which interests grows and reaches a "compelling" point at various stages of the woman's approach to term. Pp. 147-164.
(a) For the stage prior to approximately the end of the first trimester, the abortion decision and its effectuation must be left to the medical judgment of the pregnant woman's attending physician. Pp. 163, 164.
(b) For the stage subsequent to approximately the end of the first trimester, the State, in promoting its interest in the health of the mother, may, if it chooses, regulate the abortion procedure in ways that are reasonably related to maternal health. Pp. 163, 164.
(c) For the stage subsequent to viability the State, in promoting its interest in the potentiality of human life, may, if it chooses, regulate, and even proscribe, abortion except where necessary, in appropriate medical judgment, for the preservation of the life or health of the mother. Pp. 163-164; 164-165.
4. The State may define the term "physician" to mean only a physician currently licensed by the State, and may proscribe any abortion by a person who is not a physician as so defined. P. 165. "

Many stars are afraid to tell what they really believe because they will be blackballed and will not find work.
