You may have a Swiss-precision vulva, but it's not so clear to many women just when they are fertile, nor are they going to jab thermometers in every orifice or keep copious calendar notes. Many women's cycles are irregular and the usual tell-tale signs aren't so clear-cut. Some women demonstrate none of the signs of being fertile, and some do even if they've had full hysterectomies. We're a far more complex species than that.

<quoted text> How do suppose that I am "controlled by men" by my post? What does this ^^^mishmosh have to do with women being exploited by men? Is it okay with you that men use women to get their jollies out? Is it okay that men gawk at womens bodies? Even Longnightmoom pointed out porn as a lack of self respect issue for women(and the men using them).
You raised a daughter ALONE . THAT is okay that a man used you for sex and dumped you and the child that he created?
Women having natural sexual desires has nothing to do with my post. Sex is beautiful, desirable and enjoyable when the couple respects each other. Look at your consequences after enjoying it in the wrong context. You think that being loved and respected is old fashioned and out of style? Sad for YOU. Me??? Nope, I respect the body God gave me and I naturally expected a man to do the same :)
Oh, dear, did I strike a nerve, pumpkin? Well, considering I was married to her father he used me for lots and lots of sex and I used him for sex right back. I guess your husband(s) use you too. Shame on you, then.

Unlike you, when I left my husband I was independent enough and emotionally equipped to raise a child alone. I wasn't left desperately looking for another man to support us. I wasn't stuck in an unhappy marriage just because I could not take care of myself.

You? You are incapable of functioning like a normal person. You are your ability to bear children. You are your husbands wife. You are dependent on a myth for your thoughts and actions and values. Some man feeds you every aspect of your life. Take away those things and you are an empty shell. You are dependent on men to support you, to tell you how to behave, when to have sex, tell how to think and what to feel. Your entire existence is dependent on men. You are so afraid of real life you can not function without the myth to control your behavior. Or a man to make you feel valid, or children to make you feel useful.

And from that dependent, inferior, fearful, mindset, you think that any type of sex, or sexual involvement, or action, beyond lying still to let a man get off, must be something done TO a woman, demeaning TO the woman or foisted up on the woman as though every woman is a victim that has no mind of her own. No, dear. That's just you. You do not get to judge the actions or lives of other women based on your narrow, limited, dependent experiences. You can choose to be small minded with a mundane, limited, "old fashioned", old creating, life, but your do not get to define, or judge, other woman by that. Sorry.

So spare me your holier than thou, self righteous, judgement, about my life. It is really just pathetic. Your husband leaves you tomorrow and your life ends. You live a SSDD existence, speeding towards death to get your pretend reward. My life gets better every day and I fear nothing. I live NOW. You? Not so much.

Oh, and I must have been sick that day and missed out on the sex handbook that you claim God gave us. We figured it out ourselves *wink*
LMAO. It does not shock me that you think your god is a voyeur. A peeper. Whatever gets you off, I suppose. Makes no difference to me. Others judgy like you may judge you harshly though, so be prepared.

Sex handbook? Isn't that your bible? I knew you'd never read it.

Pregnancy occuring from a couple having sex is not an "accident" Chickie. NO mistake was made when the couple chose to have sex, sperm reached egg, fertilized it and produced THAT coupless offspring. Biology 101. A developing child is not a "problem". An inconvenience for that couple? Okay. Grow up and use common sense when choosing to have sex.
Abortion
Abortion kills that couples child. Abortion is not safe. Women do suffer or are you unaware of that? Maybe you don't care about those women. What about women who DON'T want to abort but are forced by people or circumstances? Do you care about them enough to help?
Oh JM, you live in such a fantasy world. Most times when pregnancy happens it is an accident. That makes it a mistake. Didn't you just say that pregnancy does not happen every time there is sex? So give it a rest already.

No children are killed in abortion. Abortion is safer than birth. Women do not suffer. No woman is ever forced to abort. That is just the fantasy you use to justify forcing YOUR will on her. Of course I care enough to help. I will help any woman seeking an abortion to find one. It is her right.

Good evening my darling "Sassafrass."

Sweetheart, I know I'm getting on in years and I admittedly do have a tendency to skim through posts written by those whom I feel have nothing worthwhile to say, but please forgive me for asking this...precisely what "facts" did you provide in the post you're alluding to...?

You said, "God wants," "God intended," "God meant..."
None of those are "facts" darling--they're your beliefs.

Major difference betwixt the two luv.

You "do" know if 'natural death' were the only permissible death, that we would be unable to prolong lives, save lives, or protect lives of any kind - we would only be able to watch as 'natural death' occurred.

Get over yourself, and accept the fact that if your god were the be all and end all, there would be no need for us to have this discussion - because the omnipotent god you worship would order things exactly as he wanted them.....and if he exists, and is omnipotent, as you claim

HE ALREADY HAS, AND THIS IS IT.

Frankly, I don't care what you believe, and I don't have to.

<quoted text> No, I am not "ok" with killing the womans child. What part didn't you understand? Rape is a violent act . The *choice*to have sex was obviously not consensual, in fact it was forced in a cruel, disgusting, violent manner. IF a conception takes place,which as we know is rare, it doesn't change the natural results of that sex act. It is still Biology 101. Sperm fertilizers egg=conception=no accident. A human conceived shouldn't be blamed as to how he/she came about(ask those conceived in rape and they will tell you that they matter despite their violent biological fathers actions).Many have bad biological parents.Do we justify harming or killing them too?
My heart goes out to anyone whonis victimized. Killing the innocent isn't a solution to rape though . That child is still that womans regardless of who or how she was impregnated. There are women who will keep that child and then some who will adopt that child out to a couple who cares and loves and wants that child regardless of who biologically produced that child.
Tell me Morgana,if your best friend confided in you suddenly that she was conceived in rape, would you look at her like she was a nothing, a nobody who deserved to die in utero because of it? Would her worth, value or dignity diminish in your eyes? I bet not. So WHY then would you think abortion is a solution to anothers wrongdoing?
So all the excuses you make such as:

None of these excuses to deny choice makes no difference to you at all. You are anti choice even when a pregnancy is forced on a woman/girl, you are anti choice in every circumstance so why make excuses? You consider women/girls brood mares and NO you heart does not go out to the victimized woman/girl as you would victimize her by not allowing her a choice AGAIN.

Why do you feel a woman/girl can be used by a man through rape in order for him to procreate? You are all for the man using the woman/girl and demanding that she follow through and bare the result of a CRIME committed against her with no recourse.

Again, why do you make excuses for being entirely anti choice when the fact IS you consider women nothing more than sperm receptacles that should reproduce regardless of the circumstances, it makes no difference to you if a woman "lets a man use her" (your words) or if she is brutalized and raped. If she becomes pregnant you demand the same outcome.

I prefer better written, more interesting fiction, but who could possibly be bothered by fiction? Like the bible. Its just nonsense words.

But the fugly little thing danced just as I said it would. Right on cue. Because I pulled its strings. Let's take a moment to pity its sad, sad, condition. I'm thinking the Canadian system is failing to identify and treat the mentally deranged. How sad.

Here I am, speaking for myself:

I get it: you're fine with a theocracy, as long as your religion is the prevailing one. Groovy. However, legislating from the Bible is a blatantly Unconstitutional paradigm. Any Congressperson who does so, is violating his/her Oath of Office.

I realize you don't give a crap about the Constitution, but I happen to believe that US Representatives and Senators are obliged to follow it, when making law which applies to Christians and non-Christians alike.

We don't have to believe in your god, hon, and it's not our responsibility to appease it.
It's yours.

Don't agree with abortion?
Don't
friggin
have one.

Next.

What does my supposed "swiss-precision vulva" have to do with a woman not educating themselves on their bodies? I know my body well enough to know the signs of ovulation. I also am well educated on the baby making process(sex when fertile=potential pregnancy).

As far as those who have irregular cycles, okay, that's another story but let's be honest here Peteyboy, over 50 million abortions since RvW? Doubt they are all done on women with irregular cycles. I happen to be against artificial forms of birth control but manage to know how my body works and IF I needed to abstain to avoid pregnancy, I did successfully. MANY women use BC and yet STILL lack control over their bodies. They simple refuse to use it properly or educate themselves on their body functions. Laziness and irresponsible behavior that they somehow use to justify killing their unwanted child that they produced. Adoption? Pffft.....too selfish for that even.

Irresponsible couples that support abortion makes for a proabortion movement. Can you say DYSFUNCTION?

Chicky, I meant no personal attact on your personal situation when I pointed out the biological father of your daughter bailing on her. He was wrong and so were YOU for allowing him to "use you for sex" as you "used him". I am married and yet my love making is not a form of using each other. It is our right to share this pleasurable bonding of our bodies and soul. I fear that you missed out on true love.
FTR, I was single for amlong time. Independent, happy and had my uos and down. Married, I share my life with my husband and remain "sassyjm" deep inside despite being titled wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, etc... I never lost my identity. Love grew my circle, not divided me

You have it backwards.

Religious conservative right wing men have issues with women. Religious conservative right wing men consider themselves superior to women and are in deep need of a mommy to care for them. They consider women subservient twits sent by their male god to wait on them hand and foot. They consider control of women an entitlement. AND yes PC women have SERIOUS ISSUES with that type of man/boy.

Abortion is a medical procedure to end an unwanted medical condition. What is insane is the fact that you will say or do anything to gain control over womens reproductive decisions. To bad for you Bucky, you have no say and remain an unknown and unimportant factor in the life and decision making process of pregnant women/girls. Suck it up.

There is no such thing as a soul and an abortion costs somewhere around $350.00. PC women have a problem with anyone who thinks women are inferior and subservient to men. Especially because of an imaginary friend that never existed and never said anything about women or abortion. Smarten up, Bozo.

Why do you continue to use excuses considering there is NO excuse in your book for abortion or the choice to have one even when a woman/girl is raped?

You do not allow for choice under any circumstance so the woman whom you consider lazy who becomes pregnant is no different than the raped impregnated woman/girl. They both are reduced to an incubator in your world and your opinion. Your argument boils down to "the circumstances surrounding your pregnancy do not matter, the only thing that matters is the fetus and the woman/girl is responsible regardless". Why continue to make excuses, why not just say that a woman/girl MUST produce regardless of ANY circumstance and that it is "gods will"? Why can't you be honest?

Who in their right mind would be attracted to a woman who would advocate killing their own baby as choice? The inly kind the attract are men looking for a quickie with no strings attached. She falls into his control trap and kills his kid so he is off the hook. Dopes.Woman with no respect for herself reaps what she sows.
