I didn't ask for one reason. Just an opinion of why abortion which is so available hasn't prevented the unwanted children from being born.
It has prevented unwanted pregnancies from continuing. Some wanted pregnancies as well, that were dangerous to the woman involved.

Since no one is trying to claim that it will prevent ALL unwanted children, as NAP explained to you, again, very carefully, what is your point?

Contraceptive failure.
Laziness.
Poverty....of spirit and wallet both.

And of course, as a result of all those mealy-mouthed religious nuts at CPC's, convincing the weak-willed to gestate, against what they had previously decided was in their best interests.

Kudos - she had the baby you insisted she bear, and then she put it in the microwave.
That's okay though - at least she didn't abort it BEFORE it was born....

That's a stupid remark. Who would approve of irresponsible parents having children but they do even with easy access to abortion. So abortion isn't lowering the number of children neglected and abused. You are touting a solution that doesn't work.
What is stupid is your interpretation of comments.

Abortion is NOT a solution to child abuse, ya boob. It is a solution to not becoming a parent when you do not want to. Parents neglect and abuse their children the DO want, like you just pointed out. They neglect and abuse the ones they DON'T want, too.

So you DO approve of irresponsible people having children they do not want because YOU would force them all to birth wanted child or not.

Who tf do you think you are kidding??

LOL. That is a really nice fairy tale. Your entire position on this topic is a fairy tale as is your religious belief. Just like your claim that it was always a single woman's boyfriend committing child abuse.
SO it looks to me that YOU are the one who is afraid to face truth of ANY kind and simply lies and imagines in order to be able to deny facts, reality and real life. Yeah, its scary and you are weak, but you don't get to live a lie and cast that disability on to others. Sorry.
Oh and the people in Jesus time said the same thing about "god" as "Jesus" was asking them to cast the first stone and “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites in Scripture:
‘These people honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
7 Their worship of me is pointless,
because their teachings are rules made by humans.’
Good luck with that.
There are a lot of disjointed thoughts here. Your choice of scripture is interesting.

"because their teachings are rules made by humans" Exactly what secularists live by.

When will the solution start working? According to you, women are still having children that they don't want and then they abuse them.

You can say that there are no children in the womb if that makes it more comfortable for you. I can see why it would be difficult for you to admit that expectant mom's are awaiting the birth of their child who already exists and is real.
No I don't remember saying that the single woman's boyfriend ALWAYS abuses the children because I didn't say that. If you want me to provide the statistics on abused children again, I will.
Yeah, you do that. Lets see those statistics again. LOL.

You can claim there is a child in the womb if it makes it more comfortable for you. I can see why it would be difficult for you to admit that you want to force women to do what YOU want, against their own will, over a wad of cells, rather than a "child who already exists and is real". I mean if your are going to be a forceful bully and remove a woman's own will and rights and force her to comply with YOUR self righteous will, you have to pretend it is for a "real" reason and not just some fake fairy tale based myth not supported by medical science. Right, Bully??

The stats in that article didn't even prove your claims.
As I said, the country is still split. If people are changing their views, it's going both ways, whether you want to admit it or not.
I agree, Bit. The article Ink cited was authored by a person who works for the Family Resarch Council - a Christian organization.

What I found interesting that finally answered my long-held question about what happened at the state level was the fact four people resigned from the Department of Health and 17 were fired. I'd always thought the major flaw belonged with the Department of Health's lack of follow through on those many complaints provided throughout the years.

And I tend to agree with NAP. The more restrictive some states make early termination, the more Gosnell-type clinics will open up underground.

Ink and those like her are basically just shooting themselves in the foot.

Oh, and by the way, since you're not in church, why are you celebrating Jesus' resurrection on the abortion forums?

Aren't there snake pits full of vipers waiting for you to handle them, or some tongues that need speaking in, on this blessed Easter Sunday? Maybe a polygamous wedding, or a posthumous christening to attend?

Nice try, hypocrite, but this is about YOU the "christian" because your "teachings are rules made up by humans" which your jesus warns about.

I am not obligated to follow the fairy tale. YOU are. And you don't. YOU are not a person of faith. YOU are also a secularist. Welcome to the club!!

Your bible does NOT condemn abortion. The bible says life begins with breath. YOur bible says it is OK to rip open pregnant women and bash infants heads on stones. Your bible says not to judge. Your bible says you are no better than ANYONE else and only those of you without sin can you throw stones. Your bible says NO ONE IS WITHOUT SIN.

So stfu with your self righteous bullsh!t.

Aborted fetuses don't become abused kids.

Compelling women to gestate, regardless of her circumstances, won't answer the problems of contraceptive failure, laziness, or poverty.

When you have a workable solution to unwanted pregnancy, let me know - I've already outlined my suggestions, involving sterilization of everyone at birth, and the creation of artificial uteri.

(sorry needed to make room)

Wonder if I'm pushing my luck here, but it's an interesting article combining Elizabeth Warren's recent feat and Margaret Sanger's early work (her real work, not the nonsense touted about by the PLM). It's a new book out on M. Sanger comic-book style and I must get my hands on it.

"It was also culturally timely: the conditions and struggles faced by women and health providers a century ago and referenced in Warren’s speech can be found throughout renowned comic artist Peter Bagge’s slim but entertaining new book, Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story (Drawn & Quarterly), a 72-page illustrated biography of the formidable and colorful iconoclast who made women’s reproductive rights her life’s work.

Sanger, for those unfamiliar with her biography, was the fiercely proud, independent, opinionated, and unapologetically determined Irish-American activist who helped make birth control not only legal but also widely available in the United States.(In 1921, Sanger helped found the organization that later became known as Planned Parenthood.) In 1913, the year that Senator Warren cited, Sanger, who had grown up in upstate New York, was a 34-year-old mother of three, ambivalent wife (she married her architect husband, Bill, at the age of 23), former nurse, and upper-middle-class proponent of the idea that women’s lives — and those of their offspring and other family members — could be free when and only if they could decide how and when they bore children.(At the time, information about birth control and pregnancy prevention was deemed illegal in the United States, based on anti-obscenity laws.) Sanger understood and appreciated, perhaps more than many women of her era and station, that biology was destiny — that a life without control over the means of reproduction was often a life that could not be lived to the fullest. As Bagge’s book outlines, Sanger’s own mother, Anne, had been pregnant 18 times and suffered through multiple miscarriages. Sanger’s work as a nurse in tenements of lower Manhattan in the second decade of the 20th century confirmed for her that women’s economic, physical, and spiritual potential were directly related to their ability to plan and care for their families. In a graphic and disturbing set piece that appears early on in Bagge’s book, the author depicts a 33-year-old Sanger at the bedside of a profusely bleeding young mother on the Lower East Side who is so despondent at the idea of having another child that she has performed an abortion on herself."

==========

"Who would have thought that Margaret Sanger, the mother of American birth control, would one day have her story told in a drawing style that simultaneously recalls that of Cathy Guisewite (Cathy), R. Crumb (Mr. Natural), and Jack Cole (Plastic Man). Sounds ungodly, doesn’t it? But such is the hysterical, intense, rubbery look of Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story, by Peter Bagge, best known for his Hate comics. In Woman Rebel, Sanger, though her story is definitely of the superhero variety, comes across visually as Mary Poppins on a bad day — red-haired, booted, angry, her shoulders stooped, her mouth a weird worm crawling across her face."

That isn't what it said.
Gallup’s most recent polling on the issue, taken this spring, indicates that more Americans actually regard themselves as “pro-life” than “pro-choice.” According to the poll, 48 percent of Americans say they are “pro-life,” while 45 percent say they are “pro-choice.” What’s more, opposition to abortion is rather plainly on the rise, as those numbers were effectively flipped ten years ago — and as, in the mid-1990s, the number of people who considered themselves “pro-choice” outpaced the number who considered themselves “pro-life” by about 20 percentage points
Your claim was actually that the situation with Gosnell is precipitating a big change. Nothing you have given so far proves this.

Still, my point stands, the numbers are evenly split, and have been for decades. 3 percentage points of difference in a poll where the error margin IS a three percent differential, doesn't prove otherwise.

Opposition to abortion is NOT "on the rise", as proven by the consistnecy of the OTHER poll where the numbers remain steady, the question of RvW. Consistently, approximately two-thirds of the country (and even YOU must be bright enough to understand that INCLUDES some of the half of the country that calls itself "pro-life") think RvW should be upheld.

You're trying to crow about something that is not happening, and providing links to polls that don't prove YOUR statement, but my own that the numbers have not changed significantly in decades.

FYI from healthkids.org

Most of the time, kids know their abusers and the abuse occurs in the home. This makes it difficult for kids to speak up. They may feel trapped by the affection they feel for their abusers or fearful of the power the abusers have over them — so they stay silent. That's why it's especially important to be able to recognize the signs of child abuse.

Science is on the side of life.

Our approval or disapproval is completely irrelevant to the choice another woman makes concerning her pregnancy. And that's the way it needs to stay, in the legal sense, as well.
