While I agree that it's hypocritical to be for choice only up to a certain point, I also know that the majority of people in this country are opposed to late-term abortion on demand. Be careful what you wish for - if it's an 'either or none' proposition, you're probably looking at 'none' when it comes to a vote on abortion, if you insist a woman should be able to get a legal abortion for non-medical reasons, after viability - don't push your luck.

<quoted text> Elise you do nobody a favor by attempting to cover up what's happening in this world today. A majority of young girls and women are left abandoned by the boy or man who impregnated them. They are basically used for sex. Let's stop trying to ignore this fact. If that man really cared an iota about them,they would stand by her side at this vulnerable time for her. How many women are left to raise their child ALONE (mostly at poverty levels) and left with the responsibility of doing it all? How many girls come into abortion clinics or pregnancy alternative centers ALONE to face ALL the consequences?
This is a terrible sign of females allowing men to take advantage of them. THEY pay the price of their moment of enjoyment and the man is off onto his next conquest. Women need to empower themselves by realizing that they mean something more than a quick sex romp until the guy has had enough. I think that women today have lowered themselves to nothing more than sex objects and they deserve MORE.
Now,please don't go on a rampage about how women loveeeee sex as much as men because that is irrelevent to my point. Women have allowed themselves to become second class citizens all over again. Killing your child doesn't empower women either. Stand up and DEMAND true love and committment and stop selling yourselves short. It's pitiful.
Your argument makes victims of women and "criminals" of men and it simply isn't so.

It's true that by and large, women of today do not know enough to value themselves more. But, in order to change that, you have to change society and religion alone does not do that, especially when many religions border on cults, and operate by instilling fear in the minds of people. People tend to stay away from fear.

You complain that women are used for sex, or as sex objects, while turning a blind eye to how much $$$ many women make, willingly, by being sex objects. Look at the plethora of billboards on the side of the road; at TV commercials; at magazine covers. If you don't see a woman in a swim suit, or minimal clothing, and in a suggestive posture, then you're probably looking at the Amish newsletter.

Sex sells dweeb. Women want money, power, recognition, and yes, SEX, just as much as men do. Only difference is, more men are willing to fork off $$ to get a lap dance, or be a "sugar daddy," than women are willing to do the same. But, it doesn't mean women don't do it. Women are BY FAR, more aggressive than men with regard to sex. And why? Simple; women are less likely to be rejected by men. A single man has to be extremely careful when approaching a woman for the first time. There's the potential for rejection, disgust, and even accusations of sexual harassment. Women don't really have to worry about that to the same extent. And many, if not most, take advantage of this "superiority" to trap guys, just to get a "pay check."

Yes. Women deserve more. But, taking away their choices to either end an unwanted pregnancy, or use birth control, IS NOT going to give women more. It's only going to place an even greater burden in a social system that is already overburdened, and it's going to open up children to foster homes and abuse. In 2012 nearly 400,000 kids were in the United States' foster care system. In the same year, over 3 million cases of child abuse/endangerment were made to child protective agencies, and an estimated 1,640 children died as a consequence of child abuse.

If you really want to help women, place an emphasis on the unwanted children of this nation. Women have a far greater motherly instinct than men do. If women were made aware of these facts, you'd probably see less unwanted pregnancies and less kids suffering the tragedy of having one, or two, parents who do not want them.

You women who condone killing your own flesh and blood because YOU don't want them,is absolutely disgusting. IMO,you find it too painful to admit the truth about what you did,so you defend the act for others to do(safety in numbers I suppose). Go get help before more are harmed and lose their lives. God WILL forgive you Elise. You need to believe that. You NEED healing and forgiveness. Living in the darkness will only keep you down.

A man coming up to another man and shooting him in the head,killing him,is not natural or the way God intended. Free will gone wrong,makes man think that they are Godlike. Deliberate elective Abortion is in no way equivillant to spontaneous abortion(miscarriage) anymore than man dying of natural causes being equivillant to him being shot in the head with an AK.
*sigh* stupidity knows no boundaries.
So it's ok for G-d to be an abortionist, but it's not ok for a woman to cause the same end-result as G-d does.

Dweeb, you forget I'm a Jewish convert and that I rejected christianity to adopt Judaism. I know all about christianity dear, so do yourself a favor and stop preaching to the proverbial "choir."

Christianity teaches that a soul that has known no sin, is pure and will not go to hell. So, whether it is a zygote that fails to attach to the uterine walls, or a 9 week old fetus that's aborted, neither have known "sin" and you know where you xtian hypocrites believe either of them will go.

So what's your beef if the soul of the unborn goes to the same place whether the body is disposed off by nature, or a medical procedure?

I know. You just don't want women to have free will to end a pregnancy or use birth control. You want them to only have free will to abstain from sex and not become sex slaves, or sex objects.

Question for you; Do you think that they are hypocrites? Are they pro-choice? be honest now Elise,one can't say they are for choice when they really aren't,now can they?
Baloney.

Most pro-choicers are for elective abortions at any stage of the pregnancy, provided that the procedure complies with the law.

In my case, my religion states that if the mother's life is threatened by the pregnancy, an abortion is mandatory and if necessary, the fetus is chopped off like hamburger and pulled off limb-by-limb. No choice in the matter.

Guess what, I endorse that teaching. A woman can always elect to have children again. A woman cannot elect to live again if she dies.

So you know, I've ALWAYS believed this way, even before my conversion to Judaism.

Not everybody cares about your god, and not even his adherents agree on this issue.
Living in darkness? Janis Ian's got your number:
"Those people who surround you
only want to see you weak enough to crawl
They'll lie for you, decide for you
and buy up all your rights and all your wrongs
And they'll try to stop your singing
in the middle of your song
for they do not want you free
and they will not make you strong
but only drag you down in the hole they're coming from
"They say you are foolish for wanting the sun
They call you selfish for learning to run
They'll tell you that the darkness is a blessing in disguise
You never have to notice if you're sighted or you're blind
and they'll do their best to keep you from the light"

Women have always made that choice and some women will continue to kill their babies but more women and finally seeing abortion for what it truly is and will turn their backs on it as a choice. Right will always win in the end even if it takes a long time.

Being Jewish and one of God's chosen people, I am surprised that you believe that He would want His Jewish children killed for convenience.

How many times do I have to tell you, that what is seen, when looking at a five-month sonogram, is irrelevant to anyone but the pregnant woman?
Why should someone else, whose pregnancy is in her body, take any notice of what I think when I look at a sonogram of HER fetus?

It is relevant. It is a child and killing it is morally wrong. Do you have the same attitude about the child after it is born? It is the same human being. Do you care if a mother drowns her newborn in a toilet? What's it to you? It has nothing to do with you right? It's just a woman who wants to rid herself of an unwanted pregnancy that went legally to far.
