It's clear about how much you care, when you have no problem calling the stopping of a heartbeat, as simply a medical choice.
I care that women whose actual lives are endangered by our pregnancies, should not be penalized for having toxic pregnancies by being forced to gestate them. I realize you don't.

Otherwise you wouldn't be valiantly trying to take this personal risk assessment away from all women....and if fundamentalist evangelical Christians can legally do this, how are they any different from the Taliban?

I'll tell you: They are not. Given enough rope, the Religious 'Right' will not only outlaw abortion across the board, but will institute miscarriage investigatory bodies, charging women with all sorts of lovely things, such as 'working outside the home', and 'not following the pregnancy approved diet and sexual positions'; hide and watch.

As far as I'm concerned, those who would remove the right of a woman to accept OR decline gestation, with all the risks it entails, FOR HERSELF, are terrorists, regardless of their 'religious affiliation', and I don't negotiate with those.

Draw your own conclusions, and be careful what you wish for.

Insects have children too...how do you suppose they feel about it when we destroy their kids?

We don't give it much thought, that's for certain.

How very 'pro-life' of us humans, eh?

You don't value a woman's life over the potential she carries...and that's fine. But I do, and that's just going to have to ALSO be fine.

Oh PLEASE, Knutter, this nonsense got old a long time ago. You can preach this idiocy all you want, just don't expect me -- or any other prochoice poster for that matter -- to acccept it as "fact."
As far as I'M concerned, the Catholic Church is a highly toxic religious institution that treats women as second-class citizens, and has done so ever since it opened its doors. That's one of the many reasons I got rid of the toxic baggage of Catholicism over 25 years ago. You seem royally pissed that anyone CAN kick the toxic baggage of Catholicism to the curb, but happily, that's YOUR problem, not mine.
I have seven good reasons to love being what I call Catholicism-Free (CF for short):
1. No constant and tedious preaching about "sin"
2. No long and boring church services and sermons to ruin my Sundays
3. No hassles about the weekly drag known as "confession."
4. Not having to pop out more kids than I wanted because of Catholicism's anti-contraception doctrines
5. Not having to give any of my money to the church's blood-sucking hierarchy by the church-based extortion known as "tithing."
6. No worries about my child being a victim of one of the Catholic Church's vile pedophile priests
7. Freedom to decide for MYSELF on all important personal matters like sex, marriage, and reproduction
Personally, I find it a gross obscenity that a group of male clerics in dresses has the arrogance to believe it has the "right" to rule over millions of women's lives. Luckily for me, I can and DID -- reject this toxic church before it ruined the quality of MY life. I celebrate that decision every day. For me, being Catholicism-Free (CF) ROCKS. It's wonderful how much freedom a woman has when she ISN'T mentally chained to a regressive and oppressive religious institution.
You need to find God in what church is.
There is mass all week, not only on Sundays.
A vigil on Saturdays.
Why would your child be with a Priest?
The lies about the church are blasphemy.
Nasi. The church always needs volunteers
if you have time to give instead of money.
The Priest helps people who ask him for help.

Sorry, I don't take orders from religious fanatics, whether they're Catholic or anything else.

That's another great benefit of being CF (Catholicism-FREE); I decide for MYSELF how to spend all my days, including Sundays. No one else gets to make those decisions FOR me.

That's your false premise, not a clarification at all.
I'll clarify again. Any termination of unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy needs to be available to all women worldwide in a legal, safe, sterile environment.
Women don't need the PLM's false premises stealing their rights to their own bodies. Women don't need the clergy, the gov't, or nosy parkers determining their pregnancies outcomes.
There isn't a female baby you wouldn't kill. All on the false premise of "female rights."

Your memory loss problems continue.

DNA analysis results are DEFINITIVE: The baby in her womb is NOT part of mom's body. He/she is a unique, distinct human being. Mom's right to convenience ends where another's body begins. Stick that in a special place in your baby-killing brain. Thanks.

You're also deciding your eternity by how you spend your days. Your diehard support and promotion of abortion won't fare well when you make an account for your pathetic, life-taking earthly existence.

Playa is comparing insects to human babies. Her "argument" speaks for itself: she's admitting there is no sound argument for killing human beings in the womb.

Here you go again, making the similar claim that an acorn is an oak tree, a bowl of batter is actually a cake, or an engine still in the box is really a fully loaded vehicle ready to roll off the showroom floor.
Well this morning I stepped on a whole lot of acorns. Did all those oak trees get aborted? According to your logic, they sure did.
DNA analsysis is unequivocal: A unique, distinct human being exists in the womb. Homicide laws exist for killing preborn babies.

Here you proaborts go again....comparing human life to acorns, inanimate turcks and cake. You're a mess......

She was born without a penis, and killing babies is her way of "getting even" with the world.

Pssst....where does it say "potential girl" or "potential boy"?

That's what I thought.

It doesn't say potential. It says "IS."

The comparison is heartbeats, not "insects to children".
The heartbeats of insects and animals are snuffed out more often than in embryos and fetuses. But what FFJ didn't elaborate on is that those hearts in insects and animals are fully developed and working properly, unlike in embryos and fetuses.
Well said. Thank you.

And you've lied again.

DNA analysis says nothing about a "human being".

Fetal homicide laws EXCLUDE voluntary induced abortion, so that is a moot point.

There are no "pro-aborts". That's just a lie people like you tell to attempt to demonize the opposition.

Lies are apparently all you've got to offer. I'm not surprised.

It tells me that people are more careless because abortion is easily available. It also tells me that kids are surrounded by sex and indulging way before they are mentally mature.
I totally agree with you about kids being surrounded by sex and indulgence.

I dont really agree with the "carelessness" point. Most Kids have access to more sexual education than they had 40 years ago and sex is more of an open topic. I doubt any young girl (or adult) thinks "we don't need to use protection; I can just get an abortion anyway.". As if women want to have an abortion.
