I'm not comparing or confusing slavery with abortion at all. Merely the idiotic and selfish mindset that says even if you think something is wrong and it is legally occurring all around you, you should not attempt to do anything about it, but simply be satisfied and content in the knowledge that you are not doing it yourself.
Even if you're not "comparing or confusing slavery with abortion at all," your attempts to "right the wrongs of abortion" would effectively enslave women to their reproductive systems for a good 30-40yrs of their lives month after month after month. My moral compass says that's the worst (most selfish) option because I would not ever know what drove a girl/woman to terminate her unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy.

Your perspective is not the only one, but when it is being legislated as such, everyone is affected. The effects (if you go by other countries who've recently criminalized abortion) would be disastrous on families first, society second. Mothers in those countries have died or been imprisoned for illegally terminating pregnancy or died for lack of legal, monitored terminations.

Go get'em Katie! GF, you rock.

I want to revisit the question that is always on JM's alleged mind. Do PC'ers limit choice by advocating a cut-off time frame (viability).

This has been asked, answered by a few, and yet continues to come up.

When viability has been reached and there is no danger to the gestating woman or some horrible fetal abnormality - the momma ship has sailed.

I fail to see how anyone with a lick of common sense can not understand the difference between viable and a cluster of forming cells that may or may not come to term.

Face it, hon,'force' is not a factor in whether or not men pay their adjudicated child support, OR whether or not a woman gets a legal abortion.
You cannot force morality on people, regardless of the furgin law..........I wish you so-called 'pro-life' folks would FINALLY figure that out.
Next...
You arguing semantics. Technically your right the government can't "force" someone to not blow up a building, kill someone, or jay walk. So yes your right they can't "force" you. Your definition of forcing someone to do something is very limited, next to impossible. I guess you only think people are forced to do things when they are physically moved by another person against their will. If someone tells me the government forces you to pay taxes I understand what they mean. I'm not going to sit there and argue with them over how they define force. Many words are subjective and you are going to slow down every conversation you ever have if you don't try and understand what is really meant by someone your talking to. Deadbeat dad's are encouraged to pay child support otherwise they can face jail time. Now not every state has the same laws but you can be severely punished for not taking care of your kids.

It's certainly okay for a woman to terminate a pregnancy or any other unwanted medical condition; there is no obligation to gestate an unwanted fetus.
The DOI doesn't have a face. Recognizing it for what it is, a political screed meant to inform England of our intentions as well as gain support from other European countries, is not defaming it. It was never meant to be a ruling document. BTW--At the time the DOI was approved, "equality" extended to white men--not slaves, women, native americans, etc. Or fetuses, since abortion was legal.

In other words you don't believe in equality, fairness, social justice, and non-discrimination. You think it's ok to kill homo sapiens based on the fact that they are seen as inconvenient. Your small government pro-discrimnation assault on equality is quite evil.

Incarceration for failure to pay child support would violate the 6th Amendment, if paying child support would be an encouragement.

Incarceration is a sanction for contempt of a court order. A court order is NOT an encouragement. Otherwise it would be called a "Court Encouragement."

Look who's talking about arguing semantics!!

Abortion is not an assault on equality, Mike. Abortion is merely a tool by which equality is achieved. Women have choices regarding their ability to reproduce, in all aspects. They can use birth control, of any kind, as much as they can carry a pregnancy to term. Or they cannot.

The equality is not in whether a woman uses birth control, or aborts. The equality is in that women can choose what best suits them. That's not only fair, just, and convenient, but it is also the law.

There's no discrimination involved either.

Hi AJ :)

For some reason, my first response isn't showing. PCers don't limit choice by advocating restrictions at viability, imo.

Miss you! xoxo

Katie! I guess I'm not a bona-fide PC'er. What does that make me? Anti-choice? Oh my god, I'm morphing into JM. I thought we were friends!{runs away crying with the horror of it all.}

LOL!

That's what JM wants you to believe. Imo, you're not AC either. JM seems to think agreeing with the restrictions at viability in Roe v Wade makes PC as AC as she is. That's hogwash far as I'm concerned. She thinks we're inconsistent, I think she lacks ability to think things through. My other post said basically the same, but better. Have nfi why it didn't show, though.

Ice cream would be good, Katie! May I have vanilla with a little caramel sauce, no nuts? Or just plain vanilla. Actually a hot fudge sundae would be nice. Who is paying? Am I paying? If you are paying I want a banana split with all the toppings.

Later can we go to a movie? Are you paying? If that is the case, I want popcorn (you bet, buttered and assaulted) and a super duper sized soda. Action films are nice, but I like romantic comedies the best - just sayin...

Whatever you posted earlier is caught in the "twilight zone". I dislike when that happens, but I've learned it was not meant to be.

Dr. Spin (JM) when she shows up (which she will eventually), will pick ferociously at our (or at least my) posts. Sometimes I just speed read past her "blather". I'm the self-proclaimed something or an other - I forget - it was JM's post and not noteworthy.

Okay buddy? I have no idea what side you're even on, IF you're even on one. Now I don't usually 'correct' people when they make mistakes, as it is usually pretty easy to decipher the intent, heck, even I do if I'm not paying too much attention, but dude/dudette, you really need to go away. Your posts are really frustrating, and they don't make any sense.

Go 'text' talk with people that can understand you.

Whatever side you're on, you're not doing 'that' side any justice. If anything, you're giving the other side ammo.

You're freakin awesome, why have I not thought of this? A totally new way to frustrate people, and tick them off. I can't believe this new Troll Technology hasn't reached me yet. I mean sure, I've missed a few meetings, but that's only because I thought I knew everything, but wow, you just added a whole new layer of undiscovered trolling tactics... talk about un-tapping a gold mine in being able to get under people's skin. I salute you!

I'm showing up at next week's meeting for sure, and I'll bring my lap top, recording device. etc. I hope you'll be there, I really, really hope you'll be there. You're so awesome!

The state has the right to protect the lives of unborn citizens. Encouraging mothers to murder their unborn children isn't liberal. Killing human beings isn't progressive.
