Speaking of imposing wills, what about using forceps, sharp curettes & suction tubes to rip arms/legs off, squish beating hearts and crush skulls?

Start there.

TIA.
I'm not imposing my views. I'm not making anyone get an abortion. I believe they should have the choice of what they do to their body. You are confused on who is imposing their views. Look up the word imposing.

<quoted text>It's funny how you use human rights and abortion in the same paragraph.
How is that funny? Can a mass of tissue make life decisions? Not even a 3 year old child can. Just as parents make decisions for their children until they are adults they also make choices on what to do and not do to their bodies.

Once a woman gets pregnant one can assume a baby will be the result, if carried to term, right? At what point does the baby have human rights?

I believe that a woman's rights begin when the decision is made to put herself at risk of getting pregnant, not after. Where's the responceability of the woman or the man?

I read some on this thread, and rarely post. To be truthful I find it disturbing. I'm not looking for a argument at all. I just think a unborn child has rights too.

Good evening to you.
Peace.

Also parents can make life decisions for their children, but they can't kill them without consequences.

When mistakes happen the woman should not be forced to have a child she can not afford to raise.

So after a lifetime of witchcraft, sacrilege, heresy, idolotry and baby killing, your dead, stiff, cold fingers will be holding a Rosary in your coffin?
Why not hold Brother Cricket? Or Sister Cattail?
You're a mess.
LOL, no, the mess is you.

A person from another forum had this to say, "I don't understand the mentality of your friend in Point 1. If she really does believe an abortion to be murder, then she has a moral duty to stop other women committing murder unknowingly.

If she doesn't think it is a murder, per se, then she should feel free to have an abortion."

I don't understand the above quoted person's mentality. If one doesn't believe abortion is murder, then she should feel free to have one, but the PLer's moral duty is to inform said person that abortion *is* murder in order to prevent her from having one?

Does that make sense to anyone? If so, please explain.

A baby may or not be the result considering miscarriage and a number of medical issues.

A baby has rights once born. A fetus has no rights that trumps the mother/citizen.

You believe a woman/girl has rights prior to pregnancy but not while pregnant?

A man has no "responsibility" during a pregnancy, he does nothing.

How many pregnancies have you carried that you are comfortable trumping a womans rights for something that is not yet in existence?

You can "think" what you like and that is your only power over a pregnant woman/girl.

Enjoy your thinking.

Johnny? Have you informed your daughter yet that you support and promote killing baby girls in the womb?
From hero to POS in record time.
I have told her that some people believe in fairy tales, and that they think their stories should be obeyed in place of a truthful understanding of reality. To say I promote abortion is a fundamental misunderstanding of what I have always said. I know how you feel, and I have an understanding of what you think of me. You might know what I think of you. The fact that we are immovable is why I don't much come here anymore. You have taught me all I think you can. Be as peaceful as you can be.

The woman's rights rhetoric concerning abortion is so old, and so used up, it's pathetic. So please don't put your "spin" on my post.
I'm for a baby's rights that's all. If a woman don't want to get pregnant she doesn't have to lay with a man unprotected, right?

Everything one does has consequences even sex. I don't even think, in the least, you will agree with anything I've said, but that's cool.

I wonder how many with your type thinking have looked in the mirror, and thought, I'm sure glad mom didn't have an abortion!!

The Bible is even older than the abortion discussion, and yet it's dragged out continuously as the arbiter of whether or not it should be legal.(Even though abortion is never mentioned in it...but I digress....) The 'rhetoric' as you call it, consists of facts. Facts don't change - only ideas do. Activists in favor of a woman's legal right to a safe, sterile abortion, will never be 'used up'...in fact, we're going to elect one Governor of Texas in 2016. Neither will our adamant insistence that women have the rights to medical and bodily autonomy, personal risk assessment, and self defense, be 'used up.' Not gonna happen.

Sorry, but the fact remains that the only power you personally have to affect the disposition of a pregnancy, is to make decisions concerning your own pregnancy. Don't approve of abortion? Don't have one.

I cannot wait for so-called 'pro-life' men to get what they keep asking for: NO woman agreeing to sex, unless she wants to be pregnant with her sexual partner's offspring. You'll all develop an intimate relationship with your hands....just remember, that if we're not giving it up, YOU'RE NOT GETTING ANY.

To be honest I'm not trying to get around anything. I realize abortion is the law, and it's here to stay. I just believe a baby is a baby before you folks do, and the child has the right to life.

It seems that over 3000 "mistakes" are made and "fixed" in this country each and every day.:(

The tiniest of hearts are willingly stopped, by grown educated men and women all so that we make sure no woman's civil rights be hurt in any way .

the sheer numbers still blow my mind .

Ps-if everyone waited untill they could "afford" to have kids. Not many would be born.

We simply live in a time where pleasure and politics trump precious human lives.

We live in a time when we want more and more extreme porn, and to hell with the kids. If given the choice we want the porn starlet to be able to kill her unborn child as long as it doesn't interfer with her job.

Many rich have abortions as well. I think many are done for selfishness and nothing else.

Now let the ladies began to tell me how it is there body te evil little brats must feed off of as they try to live long enough to get out of the thing.

There must be some mistake. No one would advocate abortion. Abortion is not something even the most evil person would advocate. It is but a sad reflection of a Godless society.

Hopefully the day will come when such a barbaric practice ends.
At this time of the year when we all celebrate the birth of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ we are reminded of how the child in a manager of the most humble surroundings was Savior of mankind. All children are blessed creations of God.
