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?

Just seeing if you want to "impose your views on others" and "let others make their own choices"

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.
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.

"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!"

Pay attention.
You pay attention it's the law get over it and move on.

I shouldn't have any choice either way what another person chooses to do with their body. I'm not out there with a sign saying yay get an abortion I'm saying worry about yourself and stop telling others what to do. It's none of your business. It's not your body, pregnancy or life so butt out.

Now you are taking this totally out of context like typical uneducated people without rational thoughts do. You probably think gay marriage will result in people marrying animals too. Stay on topic. If it's and buts were berries and nuts.

No, it's sad and abnormal to take a biological act and try to make it a religious experience. People have sex because it feels good, for the most part. Sexual activity is part of a healthy lifestyle.

Whether your god is stupid is up for debate, since he's clearly idiotic enough to make women pregnant even though he KNOWS they will abort (omniscience, remember?) His existence isn't proven either.

<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.

Some religious sects believe they have a god-given duty to inform the heathens that their cult has all the answers, and the only answers. It's just the arrogance of the ignorant, of course, but they can get absolutely militant about "educating" people about their god's will. Look at sassy, trying to define the goal and effect of sex for everyone.

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.

A "Godless society"? Perhaps, but just because you believe in God does not mean everyone in society must also have the same beliefs, or follow the rules of those beliefs.
Many people who don't believe in a god are good and decent people, just as many believers of a god are uncaring bastards.
I am a "Godless" atheist and I wouldn't get an abortion but I support other people's right to choose for themselves.
Not believing in a God does not automatically make someone a bad/evil person, just like believing in God does not automatically make someone a good person.
This may all be true but only a godless person would think it is okay for a child of God's to be killed.

<quoted text> 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.
It is sane and prevents a lot of heartache.

Nothing. I don't think there's anything "wrong" with jumping out of an airplane with a parachute, but I don't want to do that either.

Now, would you like to discuss the part of my post where I mentioned that other women should be able to make their own choices, or does that idea appall you so much?

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.

I think you would be afraid to jump out of a plane. There is always a reason that we do something or we don't.

I asked you a specific question (perhaps you missed it?).

Do you support elective abortions (NO restrictions) up until the 9th month.
