Per the CDC, 650:

And that's only that low because we have made prenatal care such a big part of the process. I can't even find a death rate from abortion, usually because abortion is extremely safe and deaths usually are the result of other problems--which is why women in later stages seek abortion to begin with.

<quoted text>Now, before I answer this, where is my dog, parrot, & Aunt June? I need this "never gonna happen" scenario to play out correctly in my head before I can answer such an intelligent question. Also, when did they pass a law that I can have a Petri dish full of embryo's beside the frozen corndogs?
Ok, so let me set the scene---Back Draft style. I burst into the burning apartment building & I get my child, niece, oh no, I see the neighbors cat has crawled out onto the fire escape, hold on, I'll be back, I must rescue it, too. Ok, I'm back in the burning building. I hear Aunt June, she tells me to get out while I can, she'll take care of the rest. But I don't. But. I. Don't. I fly to the freezer, grab those Petri dishes, then I burst out of the apartment building---slow mo, of course. I'm told that I'm a hero, but I just don't feel heroic, because I left my dog and parrot in there. Wait, oh wait, what is that coming out of the building. Why, it's my dog, with the parrot on his back.

<quoted text>Come again? No, it's actually nothing like purchasing a home that you cannot afford. Really? No, really>>really? I couldn't care less what home a person purchases, even if they cannot afford it. Check into some of the hidden camera's in clinics. You'll find a lot of answers there. They. Do. Not. Care.
Listen to them take donations to go towards the abortion of a specific race. Listen as they blatantly lie to the women as to what is going to happen. Read and find out that the "abortion pill" has huge and common side-effects that leave women lying in their bathroom floors really believing that they're dying. Listen to 911 recordings of them "beating around the bush" in an attempt to protect themselves, instead of the women lying in their clinic hemorrhaging. I don't know what else you people are searching for to convince yourselves this is ok, & that they really do care about women? Even clinic workers end up leaving, & "turning a new page" so to speak, because of the horrors they've encountered. Again, do any of you see Pro-Lifers experience the bloody mess, and decide, ya know what, I actually like this? NO, but you see all kinds who are in the industry having a change of heart.
You said PC is against restrictions that would make clinics safer, and I asked what restrictions are you talking about? Don't see an answer in your reply.

Because you are trying to make an argument based on morality, I'll ask whose morality? Are any circumstrances a woman would choose abortion okay with you? Any at all?

<quoted text>You're right, a lot of people engage in sex, not because they want a baby, but for other reasons. With that being said, if you don't know the risks involved with such pleasure, then you're probably too young to take that risk.
And too young to risk carrying to term, right?

And you seem like the type that believes there is not Right and Wrong. Whatever strikes you as OK is ok and there are no consequences. If you are so "inclusive" why can't you include people who believe in Judeo - Christian morality?
Your inability to recognize that there are others whom happen to believe other than you do, and your desire to impose your own sense of morality on the rest of us is what I personally find objectionable.
No, you don't get a pass just because you claim to follow a Judeo-Christian philosophy, that's precisely why I'm "inclusive."
I've never said that there were no consequences, I'd simply said that when men and women "bed," a lot of the time they're not doing so with the intention of creating a child.

Oh, and by the way, The Law of Jealousies gave a husband the right to force his wife into an abortion if he believed the would-be offspring was not his. Numbers 5.

You think that strongly enough, that you're willing to foot the bill with your tax dollars?

Do you advocate an abortion and sterilization registry?

Should women who have an abortion to save our lives, forfeit the further right to have biological children?

Who gets to decide 'who gestates' and 'who doesn't' under your regime?

Destroying your body with sex? Sex is healthy regardless of which genders are involved as long as it's done safely. I've never had a wreck during sex; maybe you shouldn't f**k while driving.

Women decide how they will "preserve their bodies", not you buttinskis.

BTW--alcohol and drugs have been legal for the majority of our history as a nation--just like abortion.

Goooooood grief, do you not know what Google is? If you really wanted an answer, you would have looked it up. I promise, I didn't "doctor" the whole entire www! You're wanting your answers from an anonymous person on this site, instead of looking it up yourself? Yes, sounds like you're really searching for the truth! Only when the "truth" is what you like?

Ok, you busted me, again. You guys are just too smart for me. I was dodging that very intellectual question, because it made so much sense.
Here goes>>>>If ever I am merrily skipping down a street, look up, see flames, discover that it's my apartment>>>here's what I would do (are you still not having an aw-ha moment as to how silly this scenario is?).
I would rush into the burning building, and I would save my child. The child whom I have mothered, and grew emotionally attached to for x amount of years. The child who also realizes they are in a burning building, and is filled with terror. The child who can feel pain, and knows that something is horribly wrong.
That is who I would save.
Now, once I'm out of the building, do I get arrested for illegally harboring a Petri fish full of frozen embryo's, or do I go straight to the psych ward?
You keep coming up with those ridick scenarios. They're really making people think >>winkwink<<<

There's no Sophie's Choice going on here. The answer would be fairly obvious.

However, here's one to consider.

You're walking down the street, you see a person trip, and fall. You notice that that person has a bag full of illegal drugs that just fell all over the side walk. Do you

A) Run to their aide, help them put their drugs back, and go on your merry way.
B) You run up to them with your arms covering your face, steal the drugs, and kick em when their down.
C) Follow them to see where they are going, and then call the cops.
D) Run home to make sure you left the stove burner off

I'd do B, but that's just me

Oh good grief, Pete, you've done it now....they can't abide being shown the facts of 'life'.......since they're so focused on fetuses....

Besides, I'm betting the poster to whom you replied here has NEVER had sex in a vehicle. I'm sure his bunk bed set isn't equipped with wheels.

Yeah, I get it....substitute 'Black" for 'fetus' in the post above, and you get 'racist bigot', in the place where the SCPL likes to put 'ageist bigot' these days.

Whatever works, right guys?

Anyhow, given that the primary focus on abortion comes from the political party which claims to be for

'smaller government',

I find it passing strange that the Republicans are interested in being the womb police for 51% of the population.........this does NOT sound like 'smaller government' to me.

I'm all for State's Rights - but I reserve the right to decide for myself whether I will gestate or not, EVEN WHEN PREGNANT,(since it's still MY body) and even if my State forbids me to access one of the choices.

My rights to bodily autonomy, personal risk assessment, and self-defense, ARE NOT UP FOR A VOTE.

Period.
