Murder of the unborn is everyone's business. My arguments are for morality, not changing the law.

Adoption is life, abortion is death.

<quoted text>In answer to your first question,'botched abortions' are what you people are clamoring for,
No it isn't. We're clamoring for the protection of human life. Liar.

since you advocate criminalizing the procedure, and turning qualified personnel who perform them into criminals, leaving the field wide open for back-alley and kitchen table-practitioners.
Field ? What field ? Supply and demand. If there is no demand then back-alley and kitchen table practitioners do not exist. Or are you suggesting that women lack the ability to make the intelligent and rational decision to not put their very lives at risk by allowing some unqualified back alley butcher to perform a medical procedure on them ?
You don't give women much credit at all, do you ? Misogynist.

Wrong. If "how" conception took place was the only consideration then he wouldn't support the right to abortion in cases of maternal life threat, which he said he does.
Try again ?
I have news for you. It would not matter what you or Brian "consider" when the mothers life is at risk, SHE still has the right to self defense and HER life comes first and foremost and it would be HER choice.

I understand Brian is willing to grant a woman/girl who willingly participated in the sex act her life. I think he is very kind...don't you?

Do endeavor to ask a question with some meaning.
There should be a comma after "second".

Do endeavor to learn proper punctuation before you even think about lecturing others.

<quoted text>You wish we'd just 'throw in the towel', David, but it's not going to happen.
In the face of increasing restrictions on abortions, laws criminalizing miscarriage, State-mandated instrumental rape, comparisons of ladies to livestock, bans on health insurance coverage for contraception, and a dozen other things the right wields against women, we are getting more and more active. We are voting in our own best interests. And we are winning at the judicial level, on dozens of challenges to your so-called 'pro-life' legislation.
If the right-wing religious nuts get their way, women will go back to being a commodity. The 'right' would dearly love to return us to the days when the only currency women had was our virginity and fertility. Get a clue: women are not walking wombs. We are not baby factories. We are not subjects, second-class citizens, or property. We are half the population, and we don't need "daddies" to tell us whether or not to reproduce.
Get over yourself, and crawl back to your cave, Dave.
Don't get me wrong, I harbor no illusion that you crones would ever give up your fight to defend the right to kill. No, in this case I was referring to throwing in the towel in trying to defend an ignorant and inaccurate statement like "absent the death of the pregnant woman herself, no homicide has occurred in the death of the fetus."

Cave got too stuffy, and the smell of your own feces piling up in the corners got too strong for ya, huh?

Oh, and please don't get us wrong, we harbor no illusions that you misogynists would ever give up your fight to hold on to the last thread of control over women that you can grasp onto. We understand how devastating loss of control can be, reminiscing about the days when you could slap her around if she talked back and not be subject to arrest. How devastating for you.

Are you suggesting that women lack the ability to make the intelligent and rational decision relating to their own pregnancies while being allowed a choice? Misogynist. Women will and have dealt with unwanted pregnancy in desperate ways. YOU who have never been (nor ever will be) in that position are incapable of understanding anything. You are like a clueless clown dancing around in floppy shoes. Don't embarrass yourself further.

Well, if they're not being used for anything else....like medical research, or ingredients in lipstick and Pepsi....I might have to check that out.

(The ones in biohazard bags behind the IVF clinics, are too small to be used efficiently)

Thanks for the tip!

Oh bullshit - you're clamoring for the protection of FETAL life. You couldn't give less of a damn about the lives of the women whose bodies surround a fetus. You prove this routinely.
DAVID27 wrote:

Obstetrics. The practice of which, often includes safe, sterile abortion. You might have heard of it - obstetrics is really a thing. Ask Harvard Medical School.
DAVID27 wrote:

There has been a demand for abortifacients since the dawn of pregnancy. If there is no supply of qualified practitioners, the demand will be supplied by the unqualified, for the desperate. Twas ever thus. Read some history.

See above.

And realize that YOU are the ones who hope to eradicate abortions performed in sterile environments, by qualified personnel. It's your whole freakin' agenda.

I give women credit for knowing what we need, and for having the brains to make the choices which will benefit us - you give us credit for being walking wombs, and very little else.

And it's every woman's right to decide what to do about her own pregnancies, without giving a rat's behind what Brian_G thinks about it. All is well.

It's never been about "saving babies" ... it's always been about self-righteousness, control, and wthe convenience of those who can't gestate their own kids.
