It's not necessarily logical but it is definitely consistent. Consistent that is if the basis for your support of abortion rights is the fact that women should have FULL and COMPLETE personal autonomy.
<quoted text>
Of course it does. It removes one of the choices available to her after viability while the fetus is still in HER body. She no longer has the right to electively abort in the absence of any health or life risk, or severe fetal abnormality. In that respect of course it restricts her FULL personal autonomy.
<quoted text>
And more than 40 have chosen to do so.....in plain English.
<quoted text>
Nope, not COMPLETE bodily autonomy. If she did then she'd be able to electively abort after viability, in the absence of any health/life risk......for ANY reason.
<quoted text>
And if it isn't affected...?
<quoted text>
Fail to see it ? I'M the one that pointed it out !!! What's wrong with you ?
<quoted text>
I never said it was better, it was worse, or it was on a par with anything. I merely said if you support restrictions post viability, as RvW allows, then you DO NOT support a woman's right to FULL personal autonomy. And you DON'T.
Moreover, I support contraception use. Be careful who you lump together.
<quoted text>
Why should I study up on that ? What does that have to do with the fact that you don't support a woman's right to FULL personal autonomy ?
You haven't pointed out anything other than your inability to understand Roe v Wade gave individual states the right to restrict induced abortion following viability *if it chooses* to do so. I agree with this, letting states determine restrictions following viability rather than being federally mandated to restrict or not restrict at all.

Somehow you've stretched it to insist it means I can't possibly support a woman's civil right to personal privacy and bodily autonomy. None of us has civil rights to FULL personal privacy and bodily autonomy. All rights come with limits. For some reason you chide me for agreeing with having limits.

No, that is your misperception. Pregnancy is a natural state, I'll agree. Then, so is spontaneous abortion. You are trying to enslave women to unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies by trying to deny them safe, legal, and monitored induced abortion. Her offspring didn't ask to be conceived, has no clue its been conceived, and by the 9th gestational week (when most abortions are induced), has no idea its development has ended. No crime has been committed by the woman, either, by having sex, getting pregnant, and deciding to gestate and raise, gestate and relinquish, or induce abortion. Yet you certainly discriminate against same until their thoughts become lockstep with yours.
To answer your last question, woman finding out she's pregnant at 8mos along (36wks), terminating the pregnancy would equal delivery. Leave it to you to overlook the medical definition of abortion - pregnancy ending prior to term. Thirty-six weeks is considered term.
So you agree that pregnancy is a natural state,then why and how can the conception of your child/offspring that YOU co-operated in creating,enslave you?

Of course a spontaneous abortion is natural. Although many times it is not. What does that have to do with anything?

I didnt hold a gun to a womans head and make her have sex while fertile so don't dare accuse me of "trying to enslave" anyone. IF you feel enslaved by owning woman organs that help produce your own flesh and blood,then that's your deal. SEX LEADS TO PREGNANCY WHILE FERTILE. YOUR BODY IS DESIGNED TO PROCREATE. Rip your woman parts out and screw your brains out if you feel womanhood enslaves you.

An 8 month old woman might not want to have her child and so killing him/her would be her solution.Do you have a problem with that? Yes or no?

Do YOU know anything about following a fu**ing conversation? The discussion was about whether a fetus should be aborted if it was shown to have a serious health issue, whether it is okay to terminate it before it is sentient enough to suffer or if it should be born (regardless of the woman's opinion) and suffer. I think it's cruel to make a born child suffer just because Bri-bri worships fetuses.

I know the facts of life quite well, which is why i know a fetus is not a baby.

<quoted text> Wait a second here. You are talking about a human who is suffering while dying and not one who is just unwanted while in utero. Denying the womb and deliberately killing the one in utero has nothing to do with withholding extra-ordinarty means of life support for a terminal one(that is born).
The human in the womb or out of the womb,exists. Conception means that a new life has been made. Gestation of that new life doesn't equal a potential life.

Don't want to conceive your offspring/child,then don't have sex while fertile. If you have sex anyway,then a possible conception might take place which means you HAVE your existing,developing child located inside of you beginning at point a,that will travel to point b,and eventually to point c.......where that child will continue to use your body(breast feeding)for survival while they continue to develop and mature throughout their many stages of life.
Check it!

Pregnancy and spontaneous abortion are natural states, we agree. Neither is always a healthy state, though. In fact pregnancy and/or spontaneous abortion can be downright deadly. Denying women the option of induced abortion *is akin* to "holding a gun to woman's head" and is a definite attempt at trying to enslave her to her reproductive system. This isn't the Middle Ages, JM. Humanity has improved its science and understanding of how the female body works and performs.

As Bitner used to say, nobody is legally liable to allow another the use of their internal organs and body functions even if they were the cause of the ailment. Your argument that consent to sex equals consent to pregnancy still doesn't fly.

Go look up the definition of baby. Among other things,it is your young one. Your offspring. Your child.

My son and daughter were present in the womb. I saw them move,grow and even urinate. I couldn've found out their sex but chose not to until birth. They were then,and are now,my baby.

After viability a baby can be delivered safely via c-section, he or she doesn't have to be torn apart and mutualated in the process.

Your opinion only.

Her child is not her "system". Her biological,developing child is located inside her body. NOBODY forced that baby there. YES,pregnancy can be dangerous but you feel that killing the child is the only solution to save mom and that is not true.

""""" "As Bitner used to say"""" "

Nobody cares what she said or say regarding her warped opinion.. She is a prodeath extremist.

Yes,I know abortion is legal. We are not discussing legalized killing as law. We are discussing your silly assertion that women are slaves to their womanhood. Women are NOT victims Katie. They do have brains. We all know that sex leads to pregnancy. If you don't want a child,don't conceive one,but if you have,then your biological child resides inside of your body. After birth,they reside still in your care,even using your breast for food while you house them. STILL don't want them,give them up for adoption. Killing is a crime against humanity.

""""" "" Your argument that consent to sex equals consent to pregnancy still doesn't fly"""" """""

Tell that to Playa who is judging her ex-husband for deciding that he didn't want to father children after all. He just happened to decide after the birth of his offsprings. Can you imagine the nerve of a pro-choice person FORCING a man to pay and father his unwanted children?

39 WEEKS PREGNANT gets aborted because a slight risk of being disabled.

Take a look at this baby in utero on 4D.

Yep,he deserved to die because he might be disabled. What's next? Killing born disabled to because we wouldn't want them to live.@@

Let all your ugliness show, JM. C'mon, let it all out Momma! You've already shown you're completely lacking in any type of critical thinking. Listening to you, I'd be forced to believe the only benefit of sex was procreation and we all know that isn't accurate. Btw, it is not a "silly assertion" that you are desperately trying to enslave women to their reproductive systems by denying them the legal, safe option of induced abortion for those dealing with unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies. That is exactly what you're trying to do.

I used to think you'd eventually pull your head outta your a$$ and see the PLM exactly for what it is... but I was wrong. You stand atop that bandwagon begging for your civil rights, not to mention those of your daughters, granddaughters, nieces, cousins, and future female relatives to be taken away. Hell your willing to hand over yours, theirs, and mine with a big fat smile on your face. You think you're a do-gooder. I think you're nothing but a thief, stealing women's civil rights out from them.

Since a late-term fetus is only marginally able to perceive pain at all, it's far better than prolonged suffering after becoming fully sentient. Also, the fetus can be anesthetized, if it makes you feel better.

You saw them urinate but couldn't figure out their gender?

You can perceive YOUR fetuses as you choose; other women have the right to do the same.

I don't worship gays, but that doesn't stop me from getting on my knees at times for service.

"Slight risk" my ass. LOOK at the skull; it's malformed and shows a distinct lack of symmetry. The right eye is clearly undeveloped or missing; the cranium appears to be collapsed. It correlates sharply with anencephalic fetuses, none of which live more than a few weeks after birth. You know what the real tragedy of anencephalacy is? They cry, non-stop, because they can't be comforted. They only stop when they have exhausted themselves. And, of course, when they die.

Whether she keeps the child or not, she's not legally bound to her rapist. Perhaps the rapist will be financial bound for child support payments (I hope so) but there is no bond between a rapist and the victim even if she keeps the child. If she gives the child up for adoption, the rapist has no rights and if she keeps it,
