She supports CHOICE, which IS what the woman who's pregnant wants to do. If a woman is pregnant and decides to keep the pregnancy, and that is her choice to do so, Foofoo would support her CHOICE. If a woman is pregnant and decides not to keep the pregnancy, and she terminates the pregnancy, foofoo would support her CHOICE to do so. She supports women having the choice in either event.
My God, it's like you're accusing her of standing outside a Lamaze class holding up signs that read - Abort before it's too late!
Did you support Casey Anthony's decision to kill her daughter Kaylee when 12 trimesters old?

When's the last time you read a post from a prochoicer who initiated a positive dicussion regarding "keeping it" or "adopting it"?

That's what I thought.....

1) CDC reports 39 women died from illegal abortion the year PRIOR TO Roe v. Wade.
2) "90% of illegal abortions are being done by physicians. Call them what you will, abortionists or anything else, they are still physicians, trained as such; ... They must do a pretty good job if the death rate is as low as it is ... Abortion, whether therapeutic or illegal, is in the main no longer dangerous, because it is being done well by physicians."
- From article by Dr. Mary Calderone, medical director of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in The American Journal of Public Health, July 1960 (i.e. BEFORE RvW)
3) Estimated # of illegal abortions/yr prior to RvW: 200,000. After RvW: 1,200,000. ONE MILLION MORE DEAD BABIES PER YEAR AFTER LEGALIZATION.
You'd like us to think it's the numbers which really bother you, but it's not the number of 'dead babies' that bothers you: it's the number of women who made a choice of which you don't approve.

All the numbers show, is that that many women got pregnant, and didn't want to be. If you really cared about 'babies', you'd be more interested in PREVENTING unwanted pregnancy, than in obligating every woman who will then be a mother, to take on a responsibility for which she is unprepared.

It seems you just can't handle the fact that women get to decide for ourselves whether we want to become parents or not - you want to decide that for us, and the 'numbers' of women who make the choice to abort frustrate the bejeezus out of your controlling little soul.

You couldn't care any less, about 'dead babies'. If you did, you'd be protesting the number of dead ACTUAL babies resulting from war, starvation, disease, poverty, and ignorance, rather than the termination of POTENTIAL babies resulting from abortion.

You clearly indicated that "a human" is in the womb.

You also said "of course supporting a woman's right to make her own choice means support of her right to abort,..."

Hmmm. This one stands out. Bad grammar? Bad info? Combination of both?

Doesn't matter.

Imo, you're as ugly inside as K&P is. And that's based on your treatment of others. Not very Christ-like. Does fit the Xtian mold, though.

Kinda like that twisted version of the Golden Rule of doing unto others as it's perceived they've done unto you.

Two country's are in disagreement over an oil field.

Your freind tells you she supports Country A's choice to address the issue. The country's choices are:

1) Negotiations
2) Imposing sactions
3) Acts of terrorism
4) Embargo

In your opinion, does your friend support terrorism?

You say you're prochoice, but consistently speak out against adoption...and choosing life. You are a full fledged proabort.
Pointing out that adoption has its pitfalls, in addition to its joys, is NOT 'speaking out against adoption'.

You folks would have us believe that giving one's born child away is easy as sneezing, and that every adoption goes well. What hogwash. For every woman who regrets her abortion, there are three who regret giving their babies away.

You don't want that aspect of adoption mentioned. It doesn't fit the script.

You think I take my opinions from the organization of 'national leadership'!

Unlike you, I don't need a 'national organization' to tell me what to think, feel, or say.

Go try manipulating someone else's feelings - I'll pass on boo-hooing over other women's reproductive choices.

Sorry I disagree.. as horrible as it can be giving your child for adoption .

Fir myself I knew he had a life ..which when I felt him move I was glad I could give him as he was mire real to me.

Nowadays with Korney adoption the birthmom can meet the adoptive mom.
This manes a huge difference Imo..

Sad as it is ..especially tot s young girl.

She can know that the sacrifice she made..which id what mothers do..is for her child ..to provide them with a life that she cannot or is not ready to provide.

Its the greatest sacrifice a mom can make ..and it is NOT a fatal choice.

Does it always work to perfection ..maybe nit ..but open adoption is much better Imo in giving mom the peace she did not have with closed.
And again it gives the child she carries a chance at life.

Unlike in my time she can go to school and not have to hide ..

Imo if you create life it is your responsibilty to protect it. Its what a mother does

And sad as ut is ..I did not have to regret ending his life in favor of my own circumstances.

Since you don't support her choice to do it in the first trimester, it's actually YOU who supports her choice to wait that long. For Casey, those 36 months were just another "waiting period"....and you're ALL about those.

How do you like THEM apples?

I celebrate the outcome of your decision, Rose, and frankly, I agree that adoption can be the best decision in a case of unwanted pregnancy. I'm simply saying that not everyone is blessed with the same outcome, having given away their baby for adoption, and that the choice to do so has left many women with the same feelings of guilt and shame that you ascribe to women who abort. Not to mention the addition of fear, about what their child is going to feel, about having been given away.

You think we 'poo-poo' those feelings in women who abort, but you seem to deny that women have them when they relinquish their babies - or beatify those women as having 'sacrificed', as if that somehow makes their feelings less valid, in service to the 'greater good'.

The reason proabort leaders speak out against being insensitive to those whose 4-D ultrasound pictures are hanging on Grandma's refrigerator, is because empathy for them increases. For those who want to kill babies in the womb (like you, for example), empathy for preborn babies harms your cause.

So, please, continue being cold & insensitive to the little ones. You're helping prolife cause.
