Your patronizing attempt to infantilize my assertions, due to your innate lack of ability to refute them, has failed utterly.

Wendy Davis is going to channel Ann Richards for the women of Texas....and that bible-humping batch of so-called 'Representatives', who are diligently trying to curb exercise of the right to a safe sterile abortion, and profit from monopolizing the market on abortion in their 'ambulatory surgical centers', are forgetting that women vote more often than men.

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.
Well I think it's hypocritical that you Bible Thumpers that preach no sex before marriage then want people to enter into a marriage that neither will be happy in to raise a child in a bad situation. But yet you are against gays getting married and having children that clearly would have to be planned because gays and lesbians can't have an oops moment.

What good (other than instant gratification) does sex outside of marriage bring other than the risk of pregnancy,std's,or being used by some man or woman who want your body but not *you*. Sex is a very intimate act that bonds the man and woman. Does it seem like a good thing to bond two people who are don't love the other enough to spend their life with them in Holy Matrimony? Look at the situation after a woman or young girl ends up pregnant. The guy suddenly doesn't want anything to do with her. SHE ends up alone,vulnerable and desperate. What does that tell you? He used her for sex. Then you get the girl who gets pregnant and feels that she doesn't want this guy fathering her child or having ties to her. What does THAT tell you? Sounds to me like they weren't really "loving" each other,but merely used each other. The girl ends up desperately aborting her child OR ending up alone with her "fatherless" or "half-assed father version" child. 1-4 teens end up with an STD.

Don't know why you have a problem with these so-called "bible thumpers preaching about no sex before marriage". Sounds sane to me.

The woman's rights rhetoric concerning abortion is so old, and so used up? If that isn't from the perspective of a male nothing is. What rights of a male do you feel the same about?
We understand you are for a babies (fetus?) rights to trump a woman/girls rights. We are very clear on that.
If a woman does not want to be pregnant for HER own personal reasons, She has the right to end the pregnancy whether she had protected sex or not.
Yep, everything one does has consequences even sex, abortion or pregnancy,birth miscarriage, still born, and medical complications are all consequences of the same. But don't worry your pretty little head, you will not be subject to any of those consequences.
I look in the mirror everyday and everyday I respect women enough to allow them choice. You might be happy knowing that my mother did not have "choice" in Her day. Had I been aborted I would never know. If I was meant to be here, I would be here and I am, I would have arrived one way...or another. You on the other hand believe that women/girls "owe". A serious lack of respect.
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.

So you believe that instant sexual gratification does not exist in marriage? Sex may bond two people and it may not. Ever hear of divorce? Ever hear of spousal abuse?

It sounds like they acknowledge that some people don't consider abortion to be murder and therefore should not be prevented from aborting on moral grounds. HOWEVER, these women are clearly stupid and require the radiant wisdom of a PLM zombie to show them how stupid they are, ensuring that the woman will know how immoral their choice is and choose being a brood mare instead .

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

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.

The Bile Thumpers don't practice what they preach. Try following the bible if you believe in it but don't tell others what to do. I think you straight people have destroyed marriage more than any gays could. Look at the divorce rate, rate of children born to unwed mothers, infidelity. Start in the mirror before you try to tell others what to do.

That's because there are no "proaborts".

Many who are pro-choice, however, do help women who CHOOSE to continue their pregnancies. You know this, you've been told many times. You just trot out this lie every once in a while, obviously hoping it won't be challenged. Too bad for you.

Do you believe in science at all? Or just some fiction book that can not be proven?? Humans have sex for pleasure it's a fact. Humans are still animals no matter how educated and advanced we become there is still that urge for sex. If you asked 100 people why they had sex the last time I would bet less than 10 say to reproduce.

You realize what you support is diabolical (Hence your need to delete "It's A Girl!" from my post). But, you don't care. Empathy is a foreign concept to you...unfortunately, a concept Mr. Rogers wasn't able to teach you. You're a 'man' who lacks any regard or sympathy for the 3,200 helpless preborn babies scheduled for execution today. Your daughter already realizes her father is an unfeeling freak.

What is "immovable" is your prideful stubborness and self-absorption. You lack a working conscience.

Abortion has been legal for the majority of this country's history, including the founders' time.

So people should have kids regardless of their ability to pay for their needs? That's insane.

Not a bad idea, if you're willing to trash the constitution. The constitution demands that citizens be secure in their own persons which, among other things, means they make their own decisions about its contents and who, if anyone, they share them with.

It's illegal to kill a homo sapiens without just cause. It's also irrelevant since fetuses are not considered members of a species; only born specimens are.

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.

Of course instand gratification exists in marriage. Sex was meant to be gratifing for a reason.Sex in fact "bonds" people.

Listen,many people enter into marriage for ALL the wrong reasons. Don't blame the beautiful,Holy institution of marriage on those personal choices. What you SAW before,is what you GET. That is why the Catholic church has pre-cana classes,which btw,are awesome and very essential to that preparation for marriage. It gives you an opportunity to see past the excitement and look into the core of the bond between the couple BEFORE they make vows before God.
