It's not that they want to take power, and control, over the woman, that's just a side effect from (in their opinion) saving a life. They regard the power, and control a woman has, as not as important as saving the life she is carrying. Temporarily take over the power, and control, so that a life is saved. I think that's it really.
So ya, it comes down to power, and control, but not for the reasons one may think.
Whatever their rationale, they don't get to do it.

Whoa ! Wait a second playa. If we expect that of men then we should be prepared to deal with the consequences. Now that's OK for you to say since you haven't been fertile since Carter was in office. But me ? I'm not prepared to do without the ol' bracciole until I want to carry a pregnancy. I want it high, hard and often thank you. And with the option to legally dispose of the resulting life should something happen I'm not ready for.
Then let every man you sleep with know you don't care to carry a pregnancy, and that if one happens, you'll consider the option of an abortion.

If he zips up immediately, there are always toys to get you through the night.

Trapping a man with a pregnancy, or threatening him with an abortion if he doesn't marry you is despicable behavior - but if he knows up front what he's dealing with, he can make an informed choice.

That's all I'm saying. If you can't take that heat, stay out of the kitchen, honey.
And by the way? I'm still fertile as hell. But my ol' man's been shooting blanks since Nixon.

You are harassing women for making a choice you happen to dislike but have NO say in whatsoever. In many cases, you're harassing women who aren't even getting an abortion. Mind your own goddamn business.

Innocent life is everyone's business. Just because you don't have a problem with it doesn't mean no one has legitimate complaints about the institutionalizing of the process.

I would also like to know what the percentage of women have abortions then later regret it. You don't think that can destroy a woman's mind?.

I would also like to know if a woman loses her sense of innocence after an abortion?. Does she feel dirty and somehow evil afterwords?. Does this cause women to have mental problems?.

"If" he zips up.? You directed him to. There are no "if's" here.
I'm not lookin' to just get through the night here granny. I want to be ridden like Amtrak, long and often. Your advice to men isnt helping me.

Your directive was clear. Keep it in your pants if their woman said she was not willing to carry a pregnancy. There was no "choice" involved.
That's all I'm saying. If you can't take that heat, stay out of the kitchen, honey.

Of course innocent life is everyone's business. But, just like in any business and/or corporation, only a selected few are the ones who make the decisions for that "business."

You being the equivalent of the janitor, with regard to a woman's right to have an abortion, are a far cry from having any decision making authority in that "business."

The only ones with the power to decide in that "business," are the pregnant woman and her doctor.

I love it when people say shit like that - it encourages me to ask questions like:

1) What is your stance on the Octomom?

2) How do you feel about the daily destruction of thousands of IVF-created embryos, not implanted in a womb?

3) How many children have you adopted?

4) What are you doing about war, world hunger, and the destruction of the environment?

5) What are your thoughts on routine reversible sterilization at birth, for every person born?

And many others...but that's a good start.

Well, miss/mister?
Got any answers?

I suggest you go ahead and get pregnant, have an abortion, then you'll be in a position to find out.

If you can't get pregnant because of your gender, either have a sex change operation, or get your wife/girlfriend pregnant and have her have an abortion.

Then you can answer from her experience.

In the interim, if you care to read about women who are not sorry for having had abortions, please peruse this site:

How many more regret giving up a child for adoption, than regret not bringing one into the world in the first place? I know several for whom relinquishing their baby, destroyed their soul - but you assholes never ask that question, do you?

How many women have kids, and later regret it? You never ask that one either.

(The answer is " A lot." But since it doesn't fit the script, no one on the SCPL side gives a good goddamn.)

No.

I have never once regretted my abortion, and I was far from 'innocent' before I had it.
Did I feel "dirty?" Hell no - I felt alive. I felt saved. I felt thankful.

Evil? How about you ask the two kids I gave birth to, whether or not their mom is 'evil' for having the abortion which allowed me to live to gestate them?

What kind of a moron are you, anyway?

Generally, I agree with your stance on things, but this is really shitty advice - just sayin'.

Your complaints aren't legitimate to a woman who knows she has the right to make her own medical decisions. Your demands to have a say on her pregnancies has no effect. You're impotent. There's nothing you can do about it that has real impact. You can keep complaining, I guess :-\

Dude - there's always an 'if'. Like: "If you don't care that she has an abortion, fluck on, flucker. Just don't get all butt-hurt IF she does."

That's okay, I'd distance myself from stupidity like "absent the death of the pregnant woman herself, no homicide has occurred in the death of the fetus" too.

What happens within a person's body is NONE of your business. You don't even have a right to know if she's pregnant, even if you're the sperm donor.

What "institutionalizing" ? She makes a medical decision, goes to a doctor, and is treated.
