Sometimes proaborts say one thing, only to say another which belies their sentiment:

"No, I don't think calling fetuses in general 'a useless wad of cells' is belittling to anyone." - Katie V.

Katie V.: "I called mine Aaron. And still do." http://www.topix.com/forum/news/abortion/T833...

Katie V.: "NR weirdly personifies that potential into the equivalence of a newborn. You'd think NR had a romantic vision of newborns playing inside their mothers' wombs." http://www.topix.com/forum/news/abortion/T833...

The fatal flaw is that, if you need guidance from the likes of zef, NR, or sassy, pregnancy actually is not your biggest problem...

There are moms that kill their born children INSTEAD of offering them to someone to raise. They actually think that the child is better off dead. A man threw his 3 yr old off a 52 story(?)building and then jumped after his visitation. They obviously felt that their decision was sane and moral.

You and I shouldn't judge them because we disagree,correct? I mean,who are WE to tell them that what they decided to do,was wrong.

Erm, same-sex marriage has not been legal for the majority of this country's history, including the founders' time.

Sex doesn't have to "bond" people at all. It's a tremendously satisfying biological activity. In fact, it would be much safer if people would learn to separate having sex from lovemaking.
<quoted text>
Sex in fact bonds people-emotionally,physically. It is designed to. Of course it is "tremendously satisying". God isn't stupid. He made it that way for a reason...to make married couples want to do it because it bonds them,and serves MANY purpose including procreation of the human race.

You want to cheapen that act and experience. That's sad and abnormal.

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.

To proaborts, preborn grandson's have names and plans to play Major League Baseball.....

.....until they're called out.....

.....then he becomes a "useless wad of cells"....

Again.

Brilliant Chicky: "Another woman just aborted another useless wad of cells."

Badaxe: "Now see, here is another example of your contradictions. I got you talking about your daughters pregnancy, and you admitted you had a name for the fetus, and you said he was going to play for the Red Socks, short stop, as I recall. Then when I asked how a "useless clump of cells" could play baseball, you blew up and have been ranting at me every since. It's funny how you think that everyone else's fetus is just a "useless clump of cells", yet your daughter's had a name, and a real future in the MLB? Do you see any hypocrisy there?" - Badaxe

I didn't say he would play for the Yankees BEFORE birth, when he was in fact a useless wad of cells.

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.

"Mass of tissue"

Again, YOU are a mass of tissue & water.

As early as 5-7 weeks gestation, mom can find out from home "It's A Girl!" www.TellMePinkOrBlue

If you look closely, the sex-determination test does not say "It's A Girl Mass Of Tissue!"

Thanks for the insight, Cptr. Have to agree with the fatal flaw. To me, the OP's post seemed like circular logic even as it verified if one didn't think abortion equaled murder, one was free to choose it without qualms. What I didn't get, and still don't, is the "moral duty". Who demanded this duty anyway? Not the gov't.

It wouldn't make sense to a foolish person like you whose "truth" actually equals the first little pig's house made out of straw when Roe v Wade equals the big bad wolf. You're the one who's a mess here, NR. And don't you forget it.

<quoted text> You look in the mirror everyday and what you see is a woman who is filled with guilt AND unworthiness. You seem to think that someone else owned your life. You think that your mom might have aborted you and that because she didn't have the choice to in her day,you were meant to be here. That is sad. You were created and existed before your mom knew about you. OBVIOUSLY you were meant to be *here* on earth because God willed you to *be*. How long you spent your days here on earth,was up to God,not your mom.
Us women have been created to procreate and carry while providing *life* for our offsprings. We don't have a right to kill the ones that we don't want to mother(either in the womb or out of the womb). You say that you respect women enough to allow choice. Do you understand or care about the circumstances that many,MANY women abort under? Many are done against their best personal interest or out of pure desperation. That is not choice in my book and even if you claim that it is,it is clearly not a good choice for them. Do you offer help for women who think they have NO choice but to abort? Do you have "respect"for them enough to help? I personally don't see ANY proaborts in sight when girls need help keeping their baby alive.
You must be referring to yourself "look in the mirror everyday and what you see is a woman who is filled with guilt AND unworthiness"

I look in the mirror everyday and I see a smart, free, non-brainwashed, happy gal full of worthiness. Not one who felt other women needed to sacrifice Her well being or better interests forcing Her to have no other options. My mother did "own" my life. If Her body rejected me....out I went. If She had the option to abort and did, I would have made it here if meant to be. Simple as that. Your "god" had nothing to do with it. My mother had everything to do with it, unless you can prove otherwise aside from mythology.

Nice of you to admit that you consider women nothing but brood mares. What do you consider men since you have such a limited role for women? OH...and we do have a "right" regardless of you insisting otherwise, legal or not, a woman who does not want to be pregnant will deal with it one way or the other, even suicide. Pick your poison.

I am all for supporting women who "want" to have a child, and yes I have helped family members when needed, I also support welfare, food stamps etc and never bitch about my tax money going to such, how about you? I also support those who do not want to carry a pregnancy. Can you say the same?

If your mom "owned" you,why would her body without her consent-reject you? Does that sound like control to you? Seems to me like someone/thing else is in charge. Was she capable of ending your life? Sure. That doesn't show ownship to me. It's more like controlling.

I don't consider myself or any woman for that matter to be "broodmares". Don't know how you got that impression.

No,I do not support anyone killing anyone. Are you surprised to hear that from me? What kind of person do you think that I am to support a woman killling her child because it is unwanted? I was horrified that the father of that 3 yr old didn't have respect for his son as he threw him(and himself) off a tall building either. Should I respect his choices too even if I don't agree?

Not at all. Abortion is still legal. Why do you feel the have the right to impose your views on others. If you don't want to have an abortion then don't. Let others make their own choices.
Do you support elective abortion up until the 9th month of pregnancy?

So,if a 3 yr old can't make life decisions,can the parents choose death for them "if" they think that it is in their best interest? MILLIONS of parents have killed their children after birth instead of giving their child away,so I am guessing that they felt it was best and done out of love?

Sounds like you had a controlling mother who made you feel like you were her prisoner until your were old enough to make your own life decisions. I am truly sorry.
