For the cruel jerk who just said that a baby isn't involved in an abortion,F-off. I just lost my "baby" at 3 months of pregnancy. That WAS my child,you insensitive,ugly,uncompassiona te monster. That baby was growing inside of me and I was preparing for his or her arrival. You have no respect for women like me or our deceased. I hope you believe in karma to come bite your pitiful self.

Silly me...I forgot that women cease existing after conception.

owning a uterus doesn't deprive a woman of making her own decisions. She has no obligation to the fetus.

Of course there is. That is how we all got here. If you don't want your body used don't get pregnant. Once you have conceived a child, it is another life. Not your's.

Number one, I am not new here. I christened this place.
Number two, I agree that there are both pro choice and anti-choice who oppose RvW, for different reasons. That's not what we're talking about here at all.
We're talking about those who support/agree with RvW.
You cannot agree with RvW and then turn around and say that "anti-choice" most closely expresses your beliefs as opposed to pro choice.
Or do you disagree ?
You cannot grasp the fact of "different reasons" in a poll. If you were ever polled, you would know there are never only 2 choices. So your cited poll has only 2 choices and you can't see why there is a lack of reason in your results. YOUR MIND CAN HANDLE ONLY ONE DIMENTION WITH NUMBERS, ZERO AND ONE!

That is the beginning of a human being and death is the end of a human being. We are alive the whole time in between. From the very beginning to the very end. Ethically and morally, there is no right to end that life prematurely.
Says you. I say ethics and morals side with the pregnant woman as she is already established as a human being, part of our species, and aware of herself, others, and surroundings (something the fetus is not). Therefore, there is no right to enforce gestation upon her.

And that is exactly what Roe v Wade protects. Your perspective. My perspective.

Do you still want to see abortion criminalized and Roe v Wade overturned? Then neither of our perspectives would be legally upheld.

Has nothing to do with me. If you don't recognize the 'coincidences' or unexplained gut feelings that come out of nowhere then you might be missing something working in your life to help you.
If I remember right, she was making the point that God wanted women to have abortions or there wouldn't be abortions. That's the same as saying that God wants people to kill others because if he didn't they wouldn't be able to or God want spouses to cheat on each other because if he didn't he would make it so they couldn't.
It's just her way of blaming all the evils of the world on God rather than the people committing them.
That is what Christians say. All things through God. When unexpected death happens, people comfort others by claiming "Even if we don't understand why, God has a plan and that person's death was not in vain." Don't you dare tell me you've never uttered words to that point yourself or have never heard others utter it to yet others still.

It is what most of this country was saying to each other following the 9/11 attacks.

Because this discussion is all about YOU, right?

My mother had 2 miscarriages and 8 live births, including a daughter who lived for one month after birth. She said there was no comparison between her reactions to the miscarriages and to losing a born child. Everyone has their own emotional reaction. But we are discussing the medical and legal aspects of abortion, which has nothing to do with your situation.

"Zygote. This cell, formed by the union of an ovum and a sperm (Gr. zyg tos, yoked together), represents the beginning of a human being. The common expression 'fertilized ovum' refers to the zygote."
[Moore, Keith L. and Persaud, T.V.N. Before We Are Born: Essentials of Embryology and Birth Defects. 4th edition. Philadelphia: W.B. Saunders Company, 1993, p. 1]
" represents the beginning of a human being"
The book also talks about birth defects. What does it say about that?

Silly you, they don't cease to exist but now there are two lives instead of one and that other life is just as valuable as her's.

Mom may be born but that doesn't mean her life is worth more than anyone else's, even though she may think so. The child she kills could have turned out to be an immensely better individual with a huge heart and giving disposition. Unlike mom

Not contradictory phrases, that's for sure.

How can you claim that NAP is blaming bad things on God while giving God credit for all things?

How can you not give God credit for bad things when all things are through God?

Consistency is key to integrity.

Or it could have turned out like Gary Ridgeway, Ted Bundy, Adolph Hitler... That argument does not work. It is contradictory.

No, it`s not. It simply is not. If the fetus buys the farm, the woman's life continues. If the woman dies, the fetus is toast. In either case, only one of them has sentience and purlose.
