the point is that it costs more to care for children then it does to fund abortion. no one is extorting your state monies, ok?

do you even have a job?

abortion is deffinitely the cessation of developing life. no one is arguing this.

the woman in question is the best one to make this decision; not the state nor your useless opinion.

when a woman says, "i can't do this" she not only speaks for herself, she speaks for society. this is why countries where abortion is illegal are over crowded, with high crime and poverty while countries with liberal abortion laws don't experience these maladies to the same extent.

bottom line: body autonomy. no one has the ultimate right to live inside another against their will...

The fetus dies. It isn't murdered (unless the word no longer has meaning.) On the other hand, there is no right to be gestated.

Abortion is premeditated murder; the fetus is intentionally killed.

Those that support abortion don't understand what they do.

Cue the organ music, the melodrama continues.

I certainly know what I'M doing; I'm upholding women's rights--including their medical and privacy rights.

Here's something we can agree on; the evil of abortion and the good of privacy rights.

There's a difference between asking your neighbors to pay for your abortion and medical privacy rights. Once something is publicly funded, there is expectation of privacy, because in nation of laws the taxpayer see's what he pays for.

So, while abortion is inheriently murder, the left just makes it worse, by destroying privacy, perverting medicine, expanding government by spending taxpayer funds killing future citizens while simultaneously destroying the privacy of those who abort. Hat trick!

Oh Bullshit. Women know perfectly well what they are doing. They are not required to be a life support system. They have every right to determine their best interests medically and physically and if they do not want to carry a pregnancy out it goes. Done...adios. What does a woman/girl benefit from carrying an unwanted pregnancy?

A very small percentage of abortions are paid by government funding, and many of those are therapeutic, not elective. You aren't paying for anyone's privacy rights; that's inane.

The taxpayer can expect anything he wants, and he can suck eggs while doing so. You don't have any legal standing to know anyone's medical history or decision.

Abortion is not "perverting medicine"; it's just another standard procedure. That YOU have a problem with it is in fact your problem. BTW--it's YOU who is trying to destroy the privacy of women. Project much?

Ditto, and that includes upholding the right of a woman to choose abortion for any reason, including the most basic one; she DOESN'T want to be pregnant.

The ones who are trying to destroy a woman's privacy when it comes to medical decisions are those in the ANTI-CHOICE crowd. That includes YOU, of course. Just because YOU have a problem with abortion doesn't mean everyone else has to.

Where is the benefit to "unwanted"? Where is the benefit to the woman/girls labor and effort?

Lets apply a little capitalism.

Poor Brian. He simply does not believe that a woman/girl owns her body. He and the religious believe that a zygote from the moment of conception owns it and she is its slave. I found this on a prolife physicians website:

"Biologically, from the moment of conception this new human being is not a part of the mother's body. Since when does a mother's body have male genitals, two brains, four kidneys? The preborn human being may be dependent upon the mother for nutrition, however, this does not diminish his or her humanity, but proves it."

http://www.prolifephysicians.org/lifebegins.h...

I had to laugh and respond "Since when does a male have a uterus and vagina"? Bet they never thought of the reverse!

They also show a surgical procedure on a fetus in utero. Funny thing is, they had to cut through the non-existent woman to enable them to perform the surgery. Gee, another contradiction.

If it is a part of her body, she can do as she pleases with it. If it is not, it has no right to be in her uterus without her permission. Neither argument really works.
