"It's true it's a hot button..one side wants restrictions at the very least..Nit to be confused with SAVING a life in an emergency."
We already had restrictions. That's part of what RvW did. Restrictions are also not to be confused with making it nearly impossible for a woman to have access with laws that have no other purpose.
"But at least a boundary at possible viability and pain"
We already had a boundary for viability, with RvW. All the science says that pain perception is not possible until very late in the pregnancy. It is sound science, based upon the facts known regarding human anatomy and physiology. It is a fact that sensation is not possible until the nerves are properly connected to the proper area of the upper brain, and it is developed enough to interpret that stimulus. That does not happen until much later than 20 weeks.
"The other side ..some are arguing about live babies who survive..do we kill them if the mom wishes??"
I have not seen anyone but one or two extremists argue this. And NO ONE has proposed such a law.
"Cannot believe it has come so far."
It hasn't.
"It is bad enough taking a really early term life But insisting on elective abortions..meaning healthy mom and baby...past 20 weeks I'd just plain cruel imo"
Rose 98.7% of all abortions occur AT 21 weeks and BEFORE.
"You either prevent pregnancy and many don't even try.."
And that is simply something you cannot legislate. Making abortions illegal (or even attempting to legislate the clinics out of business) for those who do try, just because many don't, is not the solution.
"Or if you are getting an abortion..which I detest at any stage..But if you get it do it early..don't rip that child apart or whatever they do now for late terms ."
Again, 98.7% of all abortions occur at 21 weeks or BEFORE.
"I mean we are saying. We are proud intelligent women making a choice..then make it already ..don't torture a child whose legs you felt kicking inside you...
Imo"
98.7%. Even though the choice remains open to women up to whatever week gestation their state allows (anywhere between 20 and 24), MOST still choose to have the abortion early. In fact, 61.8% are done before 9 weeks, 17.1% at 9-10 weeks, an 9.1% at 11-12 weeks. That's a total of 88% done in the first trimester.
As an aside, did you know that in Canada, where there are no restrictions on abortion at all, their rates are far lower than ours here in the US? During the latest record year, 2010, there were under 65,000 abortions reported performed in Canada. For the latest record year in the US, 2009, there were over 784,000 reported. What do you think they do differently there?
bHitler; "Rose 98.7% of all abortions occur AT 21 weeks and BEFORE."

98% of babies aborted occur because of convenience.

1 million more dead babies per year after Roe v. Wade. Yes, making abortion illegal is the answer.

I asked you to respond to horrific comments made by your proabort buds Foo & Katie (I even included the quotes w/ links several times). You refused to respond, and continued blathering on about Foo's kidney stone.

Therefore, I don't feel the need to respond to your requests.

See how that works?

That's where you're wrong. Too many restrictions, and the state being too lazy to make sure the laws there are are being followed bring out the Gosnell's
"I knew I had seen thus on the TV NEWS
http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/video-pla... ;
Did you watch it, or did you just read the headline? Because that is not what was said.
"AGSIN why wait."
Again, 98.7% don't. Of those who do, it's hard to say how many of those develop a problem, and how many are elective, because no one is keeping track.
"Science ??
They honestly KNOW SO T H 209 percent certainty that babies in the womb feel no pain ..feel NITHING as they are violently killed .."
I'm sorry, but you're wrong.
"They move and react to moms movements..on some level they are at least aware."
No, they are not. What you are talking about are reflexive movements.
"do you are saying some 30 thousand are done late term here ..."
Who says this? Because that is incorrect. Since only 1.3% are done late term in the US, that equals 15,600.
"Are we that callous ..and twice that entirely in Canada .
What is wrong with US that we have so many."
Again, only 1.3% are done late term in the US.
"Sorry Bitner I cannot get past the numbers we do ..eith all our technology ..."
Your numbers are incorrect.
"I will never get it at all.
And waiting ...?????"
Only 1.3% are done late term. And we don't know how many of those are elective, and how many are therapeutic.
"Think of the baby moving in the mother ..She can feel it..how can she kill it .
Will never understand"
I understand that. But you are acting as though they ALL wait to have a late term abortion. Out of 1.2 million, there are only 15,600 done late term. Again, we don't know how many are simply "waiting", and how many are for medical need.
Ok sorry on the numbers..Still that's,a lot .

In a case where moms life is at stake for repurposed of law that does not apply ..as the woman is not going fir an abortion But to save h e r life..They might LOSE the baby in the process..But it's nit the same as purposely killing it

On that woman. dear heavens ..She could nit even say t Oscar the baby ..I have never seen such dancing around.

ONCE THAT BABY IS BORN it is NOT the mom who can say kill it ..not the doc ..And PP obviously objects to legislation to save it .

She's nit a health care provider but they sent her to argue the point ..

Sorry but I wanted to pull an answer out of her mouth ..

A politician pushing an anti-choice agenda is not a scientist. These are some of the same people, after all, who think that a woman's body "shuts down" fertilization if she is "legitimately" raped, and that the rape kit from an ER is the same thing as an abortion. They're clueless.

The worries you have over the abortion procedure is already covered by Roe v Wade. So why shouldn't it have become law?
Why would you want to overturn something that covers the concerns you have over the abortion procedure? A major focus would be prevention, of course. That, too, is facing opposition, though.
No Katie they are not as I was expressing m y worries on late term abortions .

I would see none on any healthy mom and baby ..had it been my vote .

No Roe. Just family planning

And I have said this often

But I acknowledge TH a t we are NOW a society of abortion as choice

Too late to turn back the clock .

So since that is the case ...Imo ..if a woman is going to abort ..She should do it as soon as she can..

One it's an easier procedure for her

And sadly if the baby must die...And even that breaks my heart to say...then at least it shoukd be as non violent as such a thing can be.

And until a,twenty week baby can tell us if he has pain...

Maybe Madam opposes abortion because she has empathy for the little human beings being slaughtered by the millions.
We understand, Katie, that people like you have an abnormal condition in which you aren't able to possess empathy for the weakest of the weak. You lack a working conscience and life is all about you, you, you.....even to the point of executing baby humans.
I have empathy for those embryos/fetuses who don't survive pregnancy. More of my focus is on the pregnant woman than on the embryo/fetus growing inside her. She is known. Her embryo/fetus is unknowing and unknown. I don't expect you to agree with this, but any grown person should have a basic understanding of it, imo

For some strange reason you are incapable of understanding this and ascribe all manner of strangeness which you try to project.

All that woman said is that what happens next would be up to the woman and her doctor. She didn't say anything about "killing" it.

My point with the numbers is that you don't KNOW how many of them are for which reason.

A woman's health should be a legal reason for an abortion as well, don't you think? Not just her life, but her health.

I woukd agree that health is important but what health ..excuses have been used about mental heath..No reason to abort .
If a w Oman WANTS a baby she will do anything short of killing herself to give baby a chance ..along with herself of course.
She shoukd get the best care possible ..purposely killing her child ..nope don t see it as for her health ...
Pre eclampsia ..eclampsia,..lot of things can go wrong ..She should be treated if course .
Ectopic pregnancy ..remove the tube or fetus.
Dead baby remove it ....
All things CAN be done to take care of a mom ..th e y are not done at an abortion clinic.
And that w Oman was so evasive ..up t o mom if the baby s Gould be saved once it's breathing???????no

She even gave an excuse for not. transportung the

Child which might make sense if she had said their

Doctors woukd definitely save the baby .

They won't transport because someone at an ER might see the poor thing .

She was a horrid witness...And yes left it up to mom and doc as to whether to even try to save it .

Duh ..a doc is supposed to save lives...

Roe v Wade covers the worries you have. Bitner pointed it out earlier. Grumpy alluded to it. I mentioned something.

Seriously, Roe v Wade covers the concerns you have expressed. Roe v Wade protects all pregnant women, not just women who want to terminate unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies.

Have you ever read Roe v Wade and all it covers?

There isn't a baby you wouldn't dismember & brutally kill on your perverse imaginary quest to become more like a man.
I'm quite aware that you're far too cowardly to consider undergoing your own pregnancy. If you ever were to become pregnant, you'd run screaming to the nearest 'abortuary' to have it removed from you as quickly as humanly possible.
