Thanks for the note from the counter of the obvious :)
As far as my life being threatened, well lets see it could have came from disease as you pointed out, it could've came from a scorned wife, or scored husband, or scorned lover.
I know what you're trying to do, which is say women's life can be threatened by pregnancy, and yes it "can", but you know full well most of the 3000 abortions done daily, are done just becouse, and has nothing to do with life threatening.
Well atleast to the "mother", since we know what happens to life of the child, which is way more than threatening.
Every pregnancy conceived carries the risk of death for the woman carrying it. That most of them don't actually result in death is a miracle of medicine...and this country is still third in the maternal death rates from gestation and birth, in the industrialized world.

No children are killed in an abortion.
Children are born.

I can't help but agree wholeheartedly.
This is a strange sort of phenomena I've witnessed lately with some members of the PLM. They seem as though they're genuinely insulted by the fact that they're actually "winning" by fits-and-starts the whole argument regarding abortion. More and more people who identify themselves as Pro-Choice, are agreeing that there ought to be reasonable restrictions as to when, where, how, and even "why," abortions should be performed.
It would seem that public opinion--for the most part--is trending against "Late-Term-Abortions, " and yet we have our darling "Sassafrass," attempting to argue that if we dare to embrace such a notion, we're not "PC."
Talk about "sore-winners!"
Thank goodness, however, that the 20 week ban on abortions (ANY and ALL abortions past 20 weeks) DID NOT PASS in Albuquerque last week. Seems when people actually HAVE the opportunity to vote on these things, that the anti's generally lose. "NO" in Colorado. "NO" in Mississippi. "NO" in New Mexico. "NO" in Oklahoma. "NO" in Florida. "NO" in South Dakota.

So far, the only 'yes' vote on personhood, and other anti-choice amendments, has come out of North Dakota...and it's being challenged on US Constitutional grounds.

The only reason it passed, is the large concentration of fundamentalist Christian voters in ND, and the fact that the majority of pro-choice voters there, stayed home in droves. Not sure why...it's not like there aren't any.

LOL!! The label one puts on one's self is not really important.

It was funny...I thought Sassy would be somewhat happy that I don't think LTAs are a good thing...yet that sent her into alternating fits of rage and imbecilic (you're not really PC ah gagagagaga!) laughter.

I think that whole attitude shows that it isn't about a cause, but rather control. A sort of...*if I can't control what you do/think/believe then I'll control what you call yourself* kind of thinking.

<sigh>
Monday again already...have a good one!

I think McLittleDick spun out of control.

He huffed and he puffed and he spittled and spat and posted to the wrong person! Then he ran from the thread in a frenzy....probably down to the local Kwik Trip to get a 500 oz soda.

Let me tell you something...abortion would not fix YOUR problem because you do not carry the pregnancy nor do you carry any medical risk. YOU have nothing to worry about...nothing. Abortion fixes many problems for those who have medical issues, for those who have been raped, for those who are incapable of raising a child on their own, for those who will struggle through life with no support systems or help. WHO are YOU to say? YOU will never be in those POSITIONS. AND you really don't care about those who are in those positions. YOU feel that YOUR religious beliefs should trump all.
That is typical of militant anti-choice religionists like Gtown, SassyJM, Ink, and other posters who "think" along the same lines. They want their backward religious beliefs imposed on ALL women, regardless of individual rights.

And we always need to remember that some of these religionists would ban contraception too if they could. For these backward idiots, a compulsory pregnancy agenda is all that matters.

Did you know Katie's preborn baby died in utero.

She named him "Aaron."

I know what you're thinking: One minute Katie Van der Sloot says calling preborn babies "useless wads of cells" is not disrepsectful to anyone...then she shares that she named her preborn baby son "Aaron."

She's a mess.

And so are you.

<quoted text>It's not free. When restrictive laws are passed such as requiring ultrasounds, counseling and other tests be done prior to, it drives up the cost which makes it more of a hardship on women already struggling financially to get an early and safer abortion. When this happens and she has to wait weeks before she can afford it and if she's still determined to terminate, the fetus is further along and the more risk there is to the mother. Then there is transportation because clinics close for whatever reason they do. So imo, we're going to see an increase in later term abortions being done than is presently reported.
Maybe it will all be covered under Obamacare.

It is a mantra on here that women should have 'healthy sex lives' and shouldn't be forced to give birth to the resulting child.

How are you ladies going to have a 'healthy sex life' if all the guys keep it in their pants?

Good evening "Ink!"
Always a pleasure to "see" you my friend!
I believe that what "Cpeter" and others are referring to, is not the fact that Roe-V-Wade has made abortion the irrefutable "Law-of-the-Land," but that there are a great many State legislators and judiciaries who are going out of their way to pass "State" laws that will make it as difficult as possible for woman to obtain an abortion should she choose to have one.
The latest "dust-up" has been in Texas, where the Supreme Court has refused to intervene in that state's decision to make abortions as unattainable as they can by surreptitiously inserting all sorts of nonsensical requirements under the guise of, "protecting the patients..."
http://www.yourhoustonnews.com/magnolia/news/...
They're not the slightest bit interested protecting the women seeking that procedure, they're using this as a tactic to block women from access to that procedure to "protect the unborn."
This is what folks on the PC side of the aisle worry about; not that Roe will be overturned any time in the foreseeable future, but that efforts such as this, state-by-state, that have a majority of voters who're PL, will do their best to make it illegal at the local level.
Hey there John,

I understand what fears they have about abortion being incrementally restricted.

This is a good example of states rights. I believe that different thinking people are in different states. I know that at one time I didn't like the high taxes and personal restrictions of the state I lived in and moved to the next state that suited my ideals better. I assume people still have that choice.

A few more restrictions and obligations would have kept Gosnell from doing business in PA.
