At least I have an opinion unlike you. I know women who have had more than one abortion for no reason other than a baby wouldn't fit into their self centered life. If I know several you probably do too. Please don't pretend that all women having abortions are doing for the sake of the dead child.
I seriously doubt you personally know these women well enough that they would tell you in those specific words why they chose to have an abortion.

He obviously didn't have a problem with these supposed self-admittedly selfish abortions his wife had, or they wouldn't have remained married, huh? Wouldn't that make HIM selfish too? I have to wonder about someone who thinks someone so "self-centered" would make a good father.
Ain't no way in hell I would let a man, friend or not "borrow" my kid to take to Mc D's. Maybe the 6 year old was being a pain in the butt and momma Ink just needed a little "alone" time. How self centered is that?

Typical nonsense response from the braindead. You don't care about anything except that which feeds your delusions.
You're just too closed minded to accept the fact that the word Hel/hell didn't exist when the bible was written.
It just so happens that I'm not a huge fan of hell, since I've already said many times how I deserve to go there, if anyone does.

Yet "get back to us :)" when you can produce this mysterious Bible you keep speaking of.

You and inkys judgement about abortions being done as a matter of convenience means nothing. Your judgement of what is convenient or not convenient in anyones life had no relevance. Those people are free to make their own decisions without interference from people like you who don't know or care about them or their lives.
Not a judgement on my part, but only a fact. You know the facts on abortion. You also know how I feel about those who have had one. I am no better than they, and I do believe people have free will, but just don't really care for eveything out there being legal, or even worse partly paid for by others.
Many people have died here lately.
Many becouse of a natural disaster.
Many becouse of a man made one.

Ok.
People have built their own god since the beginning of time.
I truly don't see a difference today, other then using wood, gold, or other tangible items, they simply build a god in their mind.atleast they build what "they" "think" god "should" be.

Are you a hebrew scholar?

Satan has attacked God's Word/Words since the very start.

Imo - He didn't start attacking it, after it was translated into english, but rather at the very beginning. How many different "greek" languages are there? How many words today mean something totally different then just 50 years ago?

Those people lived in poor conditions, and don't have to suffer anymore.

No, I'm sorry, I confused those ten thousand, with the ten thousand that were aborted this week.

Lets just say ALL those who died didn't have a say in the matter.

"The reason doesn't matter, it is a dead baby."
Regardless of how inaccurate your sentence is, there it is. You will never empathize with pregnant girls/women considering abortion or have had one without regret.
So long as women don't walk in lockstep with you and see a dead embryo/fetus as a dead newborn, you will criticize and judge their reasons, project your negativity onto them, and sentence them to deserving whatever they get throughout their lives. The worse outcomes, the better, you'd smugly tell yourself.
I agree with your assessment. AC has to believe any woman who chooses abortion is in denial or simply evil. Their ideologies won't let them see anything else.

I imagine none of the choices are easy. Seems to me, putting up for adoption might be the toughest choice of all.

How ya doin', Katie :)

I can't imagine any woman having an abortion does so without a lot of stress. I knew a lady who laughed about hers, and said she wish she could have another one, for the meds, but people say one thing, and hide their true feelings inside.

There is no easy answer to this, but I still don't believe the kill at will program is a good message to be sending.

The more backup plans / the more risk people will take.

It isn't inaccurate. Ask any one who has miscarried a wanted child. I wish no harm on any woman who has had an abortion. It is their legal right and to listen to you and others, they go on with their life with relief and satisfaction that they did the right thing. Why do they need empathy? It's all good. My sympathy is for the women who aren't sure that killing their child was the right thing to do and may be suffering some remorse.
It is inaccurate, I have miscarried. While the emotions are under the umbrella of what we call grief, the difference between losing an embryo/fetus and losing a child is this: One was but a dream, the other a reality. Ask any parent who's lost a born and known child.

Empathy and sympathy are not the same. If you need to ask why anyone needs it, you might be incapable of giving it.

Hi STO :)

I'd imagine putting up for adoption is pretty tough. But we don't aim for criminalizing it because some women have regrets. What gets me about AC is how they accuse us of dehumanizing the embryo/fetus - I don't - all while they dehumanize/demonize women who make the decision to terminate unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy. All the while they post as if they're justified to do such a thing while referring to PC as eeeevvviiilllllll for supporting women's civil rights to choice.

Ink, every one of my pregnancies was wanted. Even the one I 'killed'. And having miscarried several times, and having lost my elder son to an aneurism, I know the difference between losing a wanted fetus, and losing a child. It's huge. I mourned my aborted embryo for a few hours, my miscarriages for a few more.

I'll mourn my son for the rest of my life.

I'm sure this has been said to you before, but you assume much when you refer to 97% of abortions as 'inconvenience abortions'. The fact that you carried your pregnancy to term doesn't make you a better person than the woman who aborts because the condom broke, and her husband just lost his job, and she knows that her job would be gone if she took maternity leave.

And while I've got you on the phone here, I'm just going to throw in that all the pissing and moaning you've done over 'hand-outs' is in direct opposition to the position you claim to take: You don't want women to abort for financial reasons, but you'll be damned if you'll willingly give them help in that department once they deliver. There are only certain ways your 'pro-life' stance will permit it, namely adoption.

You claim to have all kinds of mad sympathy for women who abort and regret it. What about the women who give their babies away, and regret it MORE?? Of all the women I know who've either aborted or relinquished, the women who opted for adoption were the shattered ones...the ones who cried every day for years...the ones who AGONIZED over where, how, and with whom their children grew up, their safety, their happiness....

Personally, I think you're a sadist...but that's jmo.

You're NOT the only woman in the world. Every one of us is different. I'm pro-choice, because regardless of how *I* feel about abortion, I can only make those choices for myself, under my own circumstances. I would never presume to tell a woman her choice was 'convenient','casually made', or 'unloving'; and I wouldn't DARE to suggest that she's obligated to feel regret...or obligated not to.

Reading your posts often makes me feel physically ill.

I think that many times we would euthanize the animal in it's best interest. There is no reason for animals to suffer as there is no end game. Religious people as you call them believe that people and even forming people in the womb have a soul and God has a purpose for their lives therefore every chance for survival should be given and we as parents are charged with that responsibility.
And if we believe that ending a potential child would be in its best interests? Are we not doing the responsible thing, when we prevent utterly, an unloved child from being born?

I know you don't see it that way, but there again, your personal religious views do not constitute a valid reason on which someone ELSE must base their life choices.
