Oh, what melodramatic twaddle. You are a simpleminded thing.
I think you are one of the people that I said wouldn't notice until it was too late. If people can't be convinced that the baby in their womb isn't a baby then they can be convinced of anything.

You don't think. That's your problem. Rhetoric doesn't count. Your post was melodramatic twaddle.

Too late for what? Abortion's been around as long as pregnancy has, and for much of history it was not considered anyone else's business. It was legal in THIS country at it's founding, with no one tossing infants off cliffs because of deformities. Don't tell me, you're one of the witless ones who think abortion wasn't a factor until RvW, right? Stop spouting twaddle.

"Baby" is a slang term for infants, and infants are already born. It's also a term of endearment for just about everything under the sun. I call my youngest daughter "Baby", but she's nearly 20, and not really an infant. Neither is a puppy or a kitten that one might call a "baby". Neither was my husband's Harley when he jokingly called it "Baby". Neither is a fetus.

Call it what you like, just don't expect the rest of us to debate as though your chosen term of endearment is binding to anyone else.

Abortion was never condone and advocated for, like today along with the lack of respect for human life.

The rest of your post is an old rewrite that can't be taken seriously.

All they talk about is tolerance. Where is the tolerance when someone because of religious feeling or just their own uncomfortableness doesn't want to be involved in a gay wedding. Why don't the gays just say okay I understand and get a photographer more willing? Why do they have to sue and ruin someone's life? To answer my own question, they have no tolerance for anyone else.
I know, right!?!! Why couldn't those pesky black people in the '60s just eat somewhere other than the white lunch counters. I mean, really! Where was their tolerance for others and their beliefs??? Why did they have to make all those white people uncomfortable!?!! What nerve!

Right before she was cut off on the youtube video, she stated along the lines that unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies were a different experience than wanted/healthy pregnancies. Then she led to the age old question when life begins.

Then she stated what your PL side is giving her crap about, that life begins when the parents say it begins.

But right before the video clip was cut, she was in the middle of saying, "...[she] believes these emotions are what legislators are basing their laws on rather than science."

Would like to know what she said next. Wouldn't you?

You're wrong about abortion throughout history, actually. Even in this country, herbal methods were advertised in newspapers.

The rest I keep writing because it's true, but you people keep ignoring it.

You're discounting the term "baby" after making an abject ass out of yourself for saying "human" (noun) and "human being" are not synonyms?
Sit.
Down.
You've lost credibility long ago.

I don't think any one has to attend any ritual or rite at which they feel uncomfortable.
I wouldn't want to be taking pictures at a Wiccan May Dance with naked people running around. But I guess in this country I would have to.
Like I previously said, a person can honor may day without taking part in the traditional may pole dance. Please feel free to continue to ignore thst and not take any iniative to understand what may day is.

If you really have to ask why, then I doubt you really know what type of discrimination, intolerance and persecution they've had to deal with.

Sounds like you'd be happier moving to a country that doesn't have First Amendment Rights in its constitution.
Bye. Send a post card.
TIA.
Sounds like you'd be well advised to read the Constitution of the United States. The First Amendment provides for freedom of worship - not freedom to persecute others in the name of your deity. Worship whatever you want, and practice your religion on yourself. Leave the rest of us out of it.

I know that's not what you want to think the Constitution says, but that's what it says.

Eat it.

<quoted text>Bitler, you are wrong! There are two types of abortion, one is through miscarriage , not the woman's fault,something was not right with the mother or baby. in fact most of the time when this happens the mother is full of sadness. The other is direct, and kills the child intentionally. Ectopic pregnancy always ends with the death of both mother and child. The baby cannot survive in the fallopian tube for nine months and when the baby grows, the baby bursts the tube and both mother and baby dies. There are ways that are being done to transplant the baby but its a ways off. Its not an intentional killing of a child like regular abortion. I am ashamed of you when you say that a miscarriage is just like an intentional abortion, that both are the same. Many women suffer great sadness when they lose a baby through miscarriage. For shame on you esp since you say you work with pregnant women.
She is absolutely pathetic to lump miscarriages in with a deliberate act that kills a developing child in the womb because they aren't wanted.

You see civil rights and gay rights as the same thing. I don't but I understand your comment from your point of view.

Now THAT'S funny^^^

YOU, a woman who comes on an abortion forum 24/7 to advocate killing humans in the womb as choice, now claims that yoh have respect for life?
