Alright then, I'm going to call you on something then. What makes a 'product' of rape any less deserving for a chance of life 'outside' than one coming into existence the ole fashioned way? What the mother believes is best for her?

You get to pick and choose what's okay, and what's not? I wonder what a child/later adult that is the product of rape, and knows it, would say to that? My guess is "You wouldn't blame her, huh? Thank you Buddy, like my chances weren't already low enough."

If you're going to say it's okay because of this, but not okay because of that, kinda makes you a hypocrite towards all life.

My apologies for being so blunt, but when on earth are you folks going to recognize that choosing to engage in sexual intercourse does not necessarily translate into choosing to have a child?
I realize many of you want to view this through a black-and-white viewfinder, but reality not only has a full spectrum of colors, but infinite shades of gray.
There are many reasons men and women choose to engage in sexual relations, and a lot of them have nothing to do with creating offspring.

Sorry, but to your last line -- folks gotta live with the consequences of their choices. In this case, a choice that is unforced and legal. Kinda like taking out a mortgage you can't afford. When the foreclosure and eviction come, you shouldn't be surprised.
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'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.

There are plenty of women who never get over their miscarriages, either. That's what therapy is for. But the vast majority of women who abort have no such problem.

<quoted text>BAM! Just like that, you accidentally admitted this has nothing to do with your desire to protect women. Who thinks safer clinics is ridiculous and unreasonable? I know plenty of facts, but I don't need 4 million "words" to say that killing unborn children is barbaric. Call it whatever you want (interesting how some call it CIVIL rights--nothing civil about murder) it does not change the FACT that killing is WRONG.
I don't know whether to be shocked, horrified, or both by the "fact" (there's ya another one, right over there--that fact you wanted) that you don't know of all the atrocious stories out there of devastated women who never got over their abortion.

For many women/couples, the idea of bearing a child that will suffer all its life, and/or die slowly (which is what usually happen to kids born with seizure disorders) is unbearably cruel. For many people, quality of life is just as important as the existence of it. And they have the right to that opinion.

There is no such thing as a healthy pregnancy; there are only pregnancies that do minimal damage. Nor are therapeutic abortions performed only when the woman is going to die; a pregnancy can threaten a woman's health on any level and be condoned on medical grounds. On the other hand, neither her pregnancy nor her decision concerning it are any of your business.
4life wrote:
<quoted text>Thanks for the term of endearment. I really am a sweetheart.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'unhealthy pregnancy' though. Less than 1% of women would have died from the pregnancy, or at least, that's what they were told. 55 million babies have been aborted. Do the Math. Seems a lot of those babies weren't sacrificed for their mothers life. 95% of women who were denied abortion went on to have happy lives. Turns out, they didn't need PP to be their knight and Shiny Instruments.
Or do you mean the baby isn't healthy, or "perfect," as determined by our twisted society? I've never looked at a disabled child and thought they were not as worthy to have their life as I mine.
What about the Kindergarten teacher who chose to kill her baby at 32 weeks, because it might have a seizure disorder? Had she not been brainwashed into thinking that's the only way, I could almost guarantee that she, her husband, and their little girl would be living the life right now. They probably would have fallen in love with their little girl, and they'd be goo'ing at her every move.
Why didn't that happen? Why did it instead end up a bloody, senseless, horrific death for them both? A lot of women are coming out, and they're educating on their true experience. Things are changing.

I call them none of your business.

Having children takes all your money; abortion's a one-time fee (and PP does them on a sliding scale and even pro rata.)

Ever see pictures of a battlefield? They make the (illegitimate) pictures of abortion look like Barbie's tea party. Why aren't you putting this kind of energy into an anti-war movement? Those soldiers feel every moment of their death/dismemberment; fetuses feel nothing.

<quoted text>You call them private medical matters, I call them human beings. Tomatoes/To-mau-toes, huh? Usually, when I'm offering someone help, I don't follow up with, "Will that be cash, or credit," then proceed to take every last cent they have. Money, no, that couldn't be an ulterior motive at all, eh? I will agree with you on one thing, my words have little to absolutely no effect on some people. If they know, truly know, what abortion is (this is where I say--enough with the words, and terms, just look at a picture,) & they're still ok with that, then nothing I say will change that. Reproductive rights (we Americans love the word "rights") sounds a lot better than what abortion looks like. If only one person decides to do their research, see's what an "into pieces" child looks like, & opens their eyes, then it was well worth it. It's worse than anything Hollywood could come up with in a high-budget horror film.

If there's a medical procedure that's attractive to watch let me know. BTW--most abortions comprise little more than inserting a tube and sucking the peanut-sized embryo/fetus out. It's quick, to the point, and no cutting involved.

<quoted text>Abortion porn? That's what you got out of people needing to SEE what it really is before deciding where they stand on the matter? Terrific way to dodge the statement/question on the topic of "have you seen what you're supporting". That would be like me concluding that you're "turned on" by women getting abortions, simply because you believe they should be allowed. Why would someone's brain go straight for something x-rated, especially on this topic? Ick! Tell ya what, I have read many stories of people viewing what IT really is, becoming mortified, & switching their views over to Pro-Life.
I have never read even ONE story of a Pro-Lifer seeing what IT really is, then switching over to Pro-Choice. That, in and of itself, speaks volumes.
Seeing is believing.
Do you also turn your head to other injustices you come across in life, because it's "none of your business"? That's such a problem in this country. Everyone only looking out for themselves, & not even realizing that's probably the biggest reason they turn out miserable, lonely, and mad at the world. Give God a try.

No, laws boil down to protection of rights.

I love how you view women as being too stupid to make their own choices and think YOU have the answers they so desperately need.

BTW--what about the women who regret having kids?

SevenTee wrote:
Despite the use of local anesthesia, a full 97% of women having abortions reported experiencing pain during the procedure,[81] which more than a third described as "intense," [82] "severe" or "very severe." [83] Compared to other pains, researchers have rated the pain from abortion as more painful than a bone fracture, about the same as cancer pain, though not as painful as an amputation.[84]
Studies also reveal that younger women tend to find abortion more painful than do older adults,[85] and that patients typically found abortion more painful than their doctors or counselors expected.[86] The use of more powerful general anesthetics can reduce the pain, but significantly increases the risk of cervical injury or uterine perforation.[87]
Complications such as these are common, as are bleeding, hemorrhage,[88] laceration of the cervix,[89] menstrual disturbance,[90] inflammation of the reproductive organs,[91] bladder or bowel perforation,[92] and serious infection.[93]
Even more harmful long term physical complications from abortion may surface later. For example, overzealous currettage can damage the lining of the uterus and lead to permanent infertility.[94] Overall, women who have abortions face an increased risk of ectopic (tubal) pregnancy [95] and a more than doubled risk of future sterility.[96] Perhaps most important of all, the risk of these sorts of complications, along with risks of future miscarriage, increase with each subsequent abortion.[97]
The particular type and severity of complications depend a great deal on the experience of the abortionist and the particular abortion method used. Given that most abortions are performed at abortion clinics rather than by a woman’s regular ob-gyn,[98] the doctor performing the abortion is likely to be a stranger of whose skill and experience a woman knows very little.[99] Such things as an inadequate gynecologic examination prior to the operation, the carelessness of the abortionist, or the retention of fetal and placental tissue can all bring on complications. These kinds of complications can usually be treated and generally subside (though not always),[100] but few women ever return to the clinics for crucial post-operative examinations.[101]
There is strong evidence that abortion increases the risk of breast cancer. A study of more than 1,800 women appearing in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in 1994 found that overall, women having abortions increased their risk of getting breast cancer before age 45 by 50%. For women under 18 with no previous pregnancies, having an abortion after the 8th week increased the risk of breast cancer 800%. Women with a family history of breast cancer fared even worse. All 12 women participating in the study who had abortions before 18 and had a family history of breast cancer themselves got cancer before age 45.[102]
Of course, death of the mother is the most serious of all complications. Over 200 women have died from legal abortions since 1973.[103] The risk of death increases according to the duration of pregnancy [104] and the complexity of the abortion technique employed.[105]

If you make a decision, it's up to you to live with it. Regretting it for your entire life is childish; accept it and move on.

If I ran donations for a clinic and some a-hole donates money that is to be used only for one race, I thank hem, cash the check, and use it to BENEFIT those people. The donor's motives are irrelevant to the goal of helping your clientele.

Which "abortion pill". BTW--every abortifacient, like every other prescribed pharmaceutical, has the potential for side-effects. Those are explained at the time you get them, and they are reiterated in the packaging. If you take them, you accept the risks. And this is from someone who is every doctor's nightmare; I'm far more likely than most people to experience those side-effects to a dangerous degree.
