Oh balls - you're a woman. You don't get to decide 'you're done'. Your only function is to gestate. Get that womb full, immediately, and fulfill your God-given purpose, What the heck are you waiting for???

Is your daughter gestating? If not, why not? That's her only function too.....what does a baby factory need a law degree for, anyway?

Take it to the Supreme Court. They can settle this once and for all. No, I don't get to decide, but neither do you. I would think women would choose to go to a real doctor, and have the procedure in a sterile area, rather then a rat hole worse then a back alley abortion.
you don't want it at the supreme court...they'd just restate Roe if they didn't toss it altogether. why whine about back alleys? that's what you want..

As with many cases of "law"; someone indeed has to decide what is considered responsible and irresponsible. Abortion is simply legalized murder, it stops a beating heart. How old are you that you don't recognize responsibility unless it concurs with your ideals? Very childlike.
abortion is legal and that's not changing..lying about 'murder' only make you a legalized turd

What I want is for women to stop letting deadbeat men use them like street wh*res, or pay for their own abortions.

MY TAX DOLLARS DO! Having a child is not a punishment, pregnancy is not a parasitic infestation, it's a human life. Only a psychotic would consider it a parasite draining the host. SICK!
AH!!! There is the rub...your tax dollars!!! LOL

Put your tax dollars aside and you are fine with abortion COW???

The woman/girl in the circumstances decides what the pregnancy is to HER...not you, not the right wing government or religion that you worship. A pregnancy CAN drain a host ya fricking moron. YOU are not every woman/girl, YOU do not get to decide, even though you are compelled to believe YOU are somehow important in every woman/girls circumstances. I am here to tell you that you are NOT. Deal with it!

Yup, until this child is born into a situation that the parents/parent are not prepared for, and then you pro-lifers can bitch about how they are sucking of the government tit.
You ignorant lamp post, they are not parents, they are sperm donor's and sperm banks. Parents let their children be born, low information voters hire people to kill the result of their 30 minutes of playing tongue sucking and slurping.

So true. He's a petty, small minded man who spends his entire day on topix. He has no power, no influence, no money and absolutely no control over women whom he seems to hate with a passion. I find guys like that tend to be barely educated, lower middle class, unattractive and sexually repressed. Just pity Le Dumbo and don't waste too many keystrokes on him. Like most ignorant people, he prefers the sound of his own voice far more than he prefers to listen and learn. 95,000 posts.......WOW! I mean really...who has that much time on their hands?

Hurray for all the women who have husbands to pay. Unfortunately 99%of women are not married, and most don't even know for sure who impregnated them. I don't want to pay for any.

No, I am personally not pro choice, but if women want an abortion, and have baby daddy's to pay, do your thing. Just don't ask normal people to pay.

Obviously you are pro choice if your only objection is your pocketbook. And you call yourself normal? The only principal you stand on is your pocketbook. What a sad case you are.

That's just the problem with these Republican goons, Morgana, they CAN'T deal with the fact that women can choose NOT to have a child, for their own personal reasons. They've been conditioned to believe for so long that women are "supposed to be" nothing more than mindless baby factories for church or state that they can't accept the idea of WOMEN, choosing for OURSELVES, whether to continue a pregnancy or not.

And let's never forget that these Republican creeps are flaming hypocrites as well. The same extremist right-wing politicians, who are so eager to control women's sexual and reproductive decisions, are the very same ones who vote to cut programs that help feed CHILDREN of poor and low-income families all across the nation. These goons are clones of Mitt Romney, who spoke his REAL feelings in his infamous "47 percent" remarks, when he thought only his wealthy backers were listening.

The Obamas have no say in Portugal-I hear it's nice this time of year.

You do realize that President Obama was DEMOCRATICALLY elected, Yes?

If you have a problem with the system we have in the USA, there are dozens of despotic countries to which you are exquisitely free to relocate.

It is not normal in a civilized world, where birth control is abundant for an expectant Mother to kill the unborn child. In a jungle somewhere it might seem acceptable, but nowhere else.
