ok, i'll give it up.<quoted text>
It should be a little less convenient. Women used to find the money somehow to go to New York to get an abortion at one time.
Women used to have their babies and ended up making a good life for them and for themselves and never regretted it. I know several personally myself.
Woman also used to give their babies up for adoption. It was quite common. My best friend was adopted and I knew many families with adopted children.
But, first and foremost, abortion should be decided by and voted on by the people in each state. If it's inconvenient to drive across a few state lines, then so be it.
It might just keep the number of abortions and irresponsible behaviors down and increase the use of birth control since it's free now.
Many of us resist abortion being the law of the land decided on by 7 "old white men" - the ones you seemingly don't like - making life and death decisions - not for the unborn who are innocent but for women who act irresponsibly making it easier for them to abort life after the fact. It's why we have Gosnells and Tillers out there who haven't been caught yet.
That's what 7 "old white men" did. They made a life and death decision for all of us - including the unborn. It's not just about women who create life and have the legal right to kill it.
It's about ethics, morality and respecting life. And what it says about any society that lacks all three.
i would prefer adoption to abortion. i would prefer anything to abortion. but that's not realistic. and as much as you seem to have you head up your ass at times, i know you're not stupid, so you have to know that legal abortions protect women while making abortion illegal will only end up killing as many women as it does the unborn.
we have to find a middle ground. you're never going to completely get what you want. the unborn will still die no matter what laws the Red states try to pass.
and that 'abortion should be decided by and voted on by the people in each state' is all well and good...as long as women are the only ones who get to vote.
