You pay attention it's the law get over it and move on.
Of course the law permits it. It's a barbaric law and we need to fight it. Human lives are at stake here. Innocent little lives that are being killed in the name of choice because mom doesn't want to offer her child up to a mom who will proudly raise her child.

<quoted text> Don't ya just love how they circle around their position on abortion? THEY *wouldn't* have one but there is *nothing* wrong with it. They spend endless hours defending the act yet "they" wouldnt have one.
Cowardly response. Speaks volumes.
They have never and will never tell you why they wouldn't have an abortion. But we know the answer.

Also a vast majority of democrats voted for Missouri's late term abortion ban. It was also not vetoed by The democratic Governor Jay Nixon which allowed it to be come law (no pocket veto in Missouri). So arguing that these laws are only coming from teabaggers is just factually inaccurate.

Yep, the ol' "do as I say, not as I do philosophy" has worked oh-so well.
"13% of abortion patients describe themselves as born-again or Evangelical Christians; while 22% of U.S. women are Catholic,7 27% of abortion patients say they are Catholics"
I feel sorry for all of them who got themselves into this position. Another reason not to have sex with people you don't want to have children with.

You think everyone should be required to be organ donors? While alive or when dead? The example I gave you was from a father who was alive.
No, I do not think it is OK to kill an innocent person who has done nothing wrong. You flatter yourself believing I am in anyway afraid of you.
Do you believe in self defense? Do you believe in systematic rape used for military purposes? Do you believe that women girls subject to this should be forced to bear the result? Do you believe they should have a safe and legal choice? Do you believe that women/girls have the right to bodily autonomy? Do you believe that pregnancy does not in any way disturb the medical/physical well being of a woman/girl? Do you believe women/girls "owe"? Do you believe that woman/girls should be exempt from the rights you enjoy once pregnant?(or at anytime before or after? Do you believe that anyone should be a life support system for another against their will?(you never answered that one, you danced around it).
Your gender has everything to do with these questions being you are in a "safe" position and removed from the equation, and have been the primary gender to institute law, not to mention religion that was written and instituted strictly from a male perspective. Now, as the saying goes, walk a mile in Her moccasins and give me your answers. I will wait.
People should be able to opt out of organ and tissue donation. Everyone should automatically be enrolled at the age of 18. No living person should be forced to donate anything. But if everyone was automatically enrolled there would be no need to.

I didn't say do you think its ok to kill an innocent "person." I said do you think its ok to kill "Homo Sapiens" that have done nothing wrong?" I'm not using the subjective word person. Peter Singer thinks we should be able to kill one year old children because they aren't smart enough for him to consider them "persons." I'm keeping it entirely objective by using scientific language. So you "still" have not answered my question and I still have a feeling you will refuse to do so. I don't know whether it is out of fear or some other reason but I doubt you will answer.

If a woman "willing" has sex and becomes pregnant then she has become a life support system for another human being "willingly." If she then changes her mind and doesn't want to do it anymore then yes I believe she should remain in the position she "willingly" put herself into.

Don't use my gender to attack me it is sexist. Logic is logic doesn't matter if its coming from a man or a woman. Also leave the religious stuff out I'm not going to bring it up at all it just confuses the issue. We should only use logical ethical arguments in a mostly secular liberal democracy.

Also in California they have made it legal for midwives to perform surgical abortions. The really hard core pro-abortion rights supporters care more about access than safety.

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.
<quoted text>
The constitution can be amended. also all living organisms can be classified by a genus and species. So you are wrong. The term Homo Sapiens is a biological one. Feti are living Homo Sapiens based on objective scientific criteria. Don't remain willfully ignorant to basic 8th grade biology.

The supreme court is going to find Texas' new abortion law constitutional. You may still think its not just like I think Democratic Governor Bob Casey Sr versus Planned Parenthood's decision wasn't pro-life enough. That doesn't change the fact that abortion rights are shrinking. Also you don't seem to understand how people reproduce or exercise their reproductive rights. People reproduce through a biological process called sexual reproduction. Once the egg is fertilized by the sperm reproduction is over and the process of human development begins a process that doesn't end until maturation. Abortion has nothing to do with sexual reproduction or reproductive rights.
Whether or not to continue an unplanned pregnancy is part of a woman's reproductive rights, like it or not.

And no, those rights aren't "shrinking". Too bad for you.

Consent to sex does not equal consent to have and/or carry a child.

What did you expect to come from it? Changing minds? Is your position so weak that it could be changed by perfect strangers? Mine isn't.
You're exactly right Ma'am, and that's my point. It's the back and fourth on this thread and no one gives an inch. I can understand that, but how the thread survives is what I don't get.

How many ways can one debate/argue the same thing for hours at a time? There's a God-No there's not. Abortion is wrong-no it's a woman's right, over and over and over, really?

Anyway I mean no ill will towards anyone. I'm not a woman rights hater. I just differ on the abortion issue, that's all, I just think the baby has rights.

Peace.

And do you have the resources to raise all of these children? Typical to suggest something without thinking it through to the end.

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.
I am so sorry you have such strong hate in your heart. Atheists generally are people who have fallen away form God because of great pain or suffering in their life. I hope you are able to heal with time.

Abortion is the very sad result if poor decisions. Hopefully we will see an end to the barbarism of abortion some day. I continue to pray for not only the dead child but the mother as well. As women we would rather die ourselves than see any harm come to out children. When that is not the focus of a mother something is very wrong and she needs help and prayer.

My prayers are with you and I only wish the best for you.

Yeah. I would be afraid to jump out of a plane, that doesn't make jumping from a plane "wrong".

Sassy asked what I thought was "wrong" with abortion.

There was no hate in that post, which gives lie to your pretension of piousness.
