Abortion should be as rare as the individual pregnant woman wants it to be--she is the only one to make that decision.

You said, "Who cares what happens to the carcass"
As you said, abuse of a corpse is illegal in most places, so I guess some people do care. Some people choose to bury their miscarried baby.
Don't you think abortion should at least be more rare? Is sex selective abortion ok? China faces a huge gender imbalance due to sex selective abortions.
Abortion because the baby is supected defective? Down syndrome? Red hair? Mixed race? Inconvenient? Might ruin your chances on a reality tv show? http://dailycaller.com/2014/04/21/uk-woman-sa... How callous and sick are we?

A woman/girl able to obtain an abortion for her own reasons, even the ones in which you approve will always be a convenience. Back alley or coat hanger abortions would be inconvenient...don't you think?

Forcing women/girls to carry unwanted pregnancies against their best interests would not be liberal, nor progressive.

Seriously? Emotion is all the anti choice people have. Concern about the "unborn" from the moment of conception is not emotional, while not concerning yourself with the statistics on miscarriage?

"""Miscarriage is the most common type of pregnancy loss, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Studies reveal that anywhere from 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage. Chemical pregnancies may account for 50-75% of all miscarriages""

""The reason for miscarriage is varied, and most often the cause cannot be identified. During the first trimester, the most common cause of miscarriage is chromosomal abnormality – meaning that something is not correct with the baby’s chromosomes. Most chromosomal abnormalities are the cause of a damaged egg or sperm cell, or are due to a problem at the time that the zygote went through the division process. Other causes for miscarriage include (but are not limited to):

Hormonal problems, infections or maternal health problems
Lifestyle (i.e. smoking, drug use, malnutrition, excessive caffeine and exposure to radiation or toxic substances)
Implantation of the egg into the uterine lining does not occur properly
Maternal age
Maternal trauma"""

How about fear Brian? Fear is an emotion and that is exactly what religion is based on, there goes most if not all of the anti choice movement.

The issue pertains to law and rights. Women have both. The anti choicers would deny women/girls both and reduce them to incubator status.

I don't hate my opponents either, like you I seek to inform and assist them in correcting their ways. Especially if they are a member of a male hierarchy religion, it is my sworn duty to inform them that WOMEN will not be reduced to submissive subservient incubators as in the past under their direction.

Some reasons for murdering your baby are worse than others. Not all reasons are the same, not all are moral.

I don't advocate changing the law, I advocate morality. "Back alley or coat hanger abortions would be" just as moral as those done in a clinic by abortionists wearing white coats.

Interesting choice, all the force comes from the woman's own decisions, except in the cases of rape, incest or threat to the mother's life.

Abortion is intentional, miscarriages aren't. I thought women were empowered to take responsibility, but M.9.R. writes they are "submissive subservient incubators", without moral choice.

Adoption means sharing life, it satisfies the mother's unwanted pregnancy, the child's need for parents and the needs of the adopting parents. Abortion satisfies only death.

I advocate life, if that means not murdering your unborn baby, so be it. Plenty of women are pro-life; morality isn't defined by gender.

I'd never call another posters a "drooling hypocrite", least of all N.A.P. because I haven't seen any evidence of his belief in objective standards. I know I can't be hypocritical on this issue because I've never had or performed an abortion; I practice what I preach. Cherish life, the murder of a very young human being isn't my definition of freedom.

You are a liberal fck. Brian always takes the high road, but I don't. "Hate" is a strong word, so I I will say "loathe" instead. I loathe your flawed thought process. It is thinking like yours that allows things like holocausts and genocide, eugenics and abortion on demand. Abortion, the very word is negative. You work is an abortion,(that is not a compliment). Have you ever witnessed an abortion or a birth? The way you treat miscarriage is awful, it is a devastating experience for a mother.
Carrying a baby is hard work, a miracle that only women can perform. Sometimes it is difficult and even a sacrifice to do the right thing, it does not make it any less right, such as preserving the life of a baby in the womb. Perhaps in other ethical quandries, you would choose the easy way out instead of what is right. You witness a murder, but it is not anyone you know, you don't want to get involved, it might get messy or inconvenient, so you pretend you saw nothing. Same thing.

Unless you are in favor of these women being relegated to illegal abortion, why else would you seek to criminalize it?
You've been suggesting that a corpse has more right to bodily autonomy than a pregnant woman.
You've been suggesting that a woman consents to pregnancy when she consents to sex.
You've been suggesting that women's reproduction should be more subject to the opinions of others, than to our own opinions.
I suggest you get your very own womb implant, that you can control to your little heart's content.
Next....
So you're saying that just because some women in the past may have made a choice to literally put their very lives in the hands of an unqualified hack of a butcher, that women are thus forever condemned and predetermined to make such misguided, life jeopardizing choices in perpetuity ? I happen to have a higher opinion of women.

I didn't say it didn't matter. I just clarified what my motivation was and is. I'm glad we agree.
Your problem is that you have no right or legal standing to "protect" fetuses.
I don't but the government does. And they already do protect post-viability fetuses.
No one has complete autonomy, witless.
No they don't dumbbell. So stop citing personal autonomy rights as something that cannot be restricted.
The motivation was to allow states a modicum of involvement following viability,
That's not motivation, dumbbell. That's an action. What motivated them to take such action ?
and to protect women since a late-term abortion is just as risky as childbirth.
The state is only allowed to REGULATE not proscribe abortion after the first trimester in the interest of the woman's health, dumbbell. That is, they can dictate the "requirements as to the qualifications of the person who is to perform the abortion; as to the licensure of that person; as to the facility in which the procedure is to be performed, that is, whether it must be a hospital or may be a clinic or some other place of less-than-hospital status; as to the licensing of the facility; and the like."
On the other hand, dumbbell, the right to PROSCRIBE abortion post-viability stems from the state's interest in protecting fetal life.
"If the State is interested in PROTECTING FETAL LIFE after viability, it may go so far as to proscribe abortion during that period, except when it is necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother"

It's right there in RvW. Look it up.

So it seems that the government is already controlling their choices, and thus as you said, controlling them.

I wonder what kind of life's experiences leaves a person so callous and unmoved by the intentional killing of an unborn baby. He sure doesn't see the beauty and innocence of a child.

It's also a medical fact that at the time the greatest amount of abortions take place, it will not live outside the mother. Whether it's alive it's irrelevant. Mommy gets to decide whether it stays in her womb.

Why do you think so little of women ?
Your deliberate obtuseness aside, even when abortion WAS illegal, there were many women who sought it - for the same reasons we seek it when it IS legal.

Unless those reasons disappear, neither will abortion, regardless of its legality - you can dismiss this fact all you care to - but it remains a fact.

I'm not the one who wants to relegate desperate women to desperate measures - why do YOU hate women so much?
