<quoted text> Bully for you. What 'business' is that? Are you an obstetrician?<quoted text>The outright LIE that contraceptives contribute to the increase in MATERNAL death, or that the rise in maternal death is caused by abortion, will not be accepted either. Who the hell do you think you are, anyway??
<quoted text>Abortion has been around as long as pregnancy, mister. It's never been a safer practice for women than it is in 2013, and for you to assert that it is an assault on women's bodies and emotional/mental health is laughable. The REAL assault has been perpetrated by nutjobs like you, who want to guilt and shame women into declining sex without 'benefit' of marriage, and punish us with pregnancy as the right arm of your god. Abortion saves lives- and you worship fetuses.
<quoted text>'Psychological issues that call for medicine'?? Almost ALL of this phenomena can be attributed to Big Pharma pushing said medicine for every minute condition which could theoretically be considered 'medicable'. We're not crazy ...we're lazy, brainwashed, and numb. The powers that be, prefer it that way.
<quoted text>What heart?
Women are victims of the Church's endeavors to convince us that we are 'less than', and the State has begun to insist that we remain so. The powers that be, prefer that too.
I decline.
What doctor would say "I'm in the business"? I don't know who they think they're fooling here.

But remember. You're making the law. Actually, that's what Roe v Wade does. The future human gains consideration as the pregnancy progresses.

My guess? It's a worker bee at a crisis pregnancy center. Probably a clinic protestor as well. I peg her as the frothy type.

It's actually States which accord fetuses that consideration, on a State by State basis...the RvW decision doesn't demarcate where or when a State may decide to declare its interest in the fetus. It precludes States from interfering in a woman's privacy, relative to her pregnancy, and her medical/reproductive choices, but affirms that States may still have an interest in the fetus. That's it.

Just saying....

For what it's worth,I do believe "Dated info". I'm married to a health care provider. Granted,it's not something that we're readily prone to believe but nevertheless,it's fact.

What's fact? Could you have been a bit more clear??

I'm married to a cabinet maker - doesn't preclude me from knowing the truth about my abortion. For the record, I've never regretted it, and in the same circumstances, I would do it again.

Claiming to be 'in the business' is almost as vague as saying 'I do believe Dated Info'... not to put too fine a point on it, but about what??

Try again?

That was meant as a put-down, and we both know it.
I also notice that you did not address my remarks about the shallow insults about her personal/physical appearance that she endures on here constantly...coming from those oh-so-loving-Christlike Christians. And you actually think being called an extremist compares with that kind of abuse?
I did comment on that and said it was wrong to do.

Maybe I am at fault but I usually scroll by the distasteful remarks and choose not to interact with that particular poster.

I always expect to defend myself when neccessary.

The 'church' is built on the idea that women are secondary, sexually suspect, and subservient to men. That's no secret. Why are you so intent on denying the truth?

I already know that, slugger. Catholicism has been mightily attempting to affirm that we (and children, other than fetal 'children') ARE second class for nearly 2000 years. Blatant and craven denial of that fact, is the last bastion of the perception of sanity, for Catholics.

Wrong gender, wrong casting, wrong series.

It's Gemma Teller, Sons Of Anarchy...not Nucky Thompson, Boardwalk Empire.

I suggest an eye exam, forthwith...

Sorry, but just noticed you left out the word "rarely" which should have went between church and follows, in your post.

Hope that helps :)
