If everyone only posted what they were obligated to this forum would be 12000 blank pages.....except maybe for your nursing yarns.

There's a reason abortion would not be the "right" choice for Michelle. Her refusal to explain why speaks volumes.

Nothing is new in this debate. If you don't want an abortion, don't. How simple is that to understand?
You're right.....nothing IS new. And that " if you don't want an abortion don't have one" logic heads the list of things that are so old they have mold.
That logic is simple to understand only to those who can't or don't want to grasp the concept of caring for something or someone other than yourself. If you believe that abortion is the taking of an innocent human life then it is simply NOT possible to sit back and say it is OK if i simply don't have one myself.
How simple is THAT to understand ?

ISupporting the fact that we all have more choices other than giving birth if we're going to have unprotected sex is "OK". How do you propose birth be forced? Whatever you suggest isn't going to be "OK".

Life is not a philosophical question. It is a scientific one. There is no dispute of the existence of a distinct and developing human life. The man-established point(s) at which that life is considered to be a "person" or a "human being"...or when it is considered to have value or be worthy of protection is what is philosophical.
You are wrong again coward. You're on real fuckin roll here.
Not in the context Cpeter is referring to. How we live life is philosophical. The commandments were written because of the way they were living life and to (re)establish a convenant. They had nothing to do with abortion.

Even if you believe they're not guilt ridden they could also be nitwitted pro choicer plants who never had an abortion at all. Not beyond the realm of possibility. When it comes to retaining that precious right to kill, they've shown they're not above anything.
Either way the site proves nothing.
Actually, it proves that some of you will say and invent anything, no matter how foolish, in misguided and fairly lame attempts to discredit anyone that feels differently than you do.

You DO understand that the same thing can be said for every freak that claims they still feel debilitating guilt after dozens of years after having an abortion, right?

The REALITY is that while many likely DO still feel guilt, an equal amount, or more, DONT. We can collectively try to belittle the other all we want, but that doesn't change the FACT that many of these women on both sides not only feel or DONT feel guilt or regret, that they will often want to share their stories.

It's simple as... what decision you'd have someone else make for you concerning your body and health? Men get to have children through consentual sex, women don't always get a choice. Only women can be raped and end up carrying an unwanted pregnancy.

The thing is many people don't believe aborting a pregnancy is the same as taking a life, no matter how many times you tell them they should.

Some people equate a fertilized egg to a neonate, others don't, and it doesn't give one person the right to tell someone else they must. It's really a personal belief a person has to form based on their view of science and/or religion as to when life actually begins. Not all people believe that conception is the be all and end all of the definition of life. That's a religiously based definition that not all people agree on. 25% of pregnancies wouldn't end in miscarriage if it were only that simple.

Nope, I didn't write that at all, although I knew you or one of the other anti-choice imbeciles here would make that false accusation.
I posted that link and the exact words of the post to show that contrary to the anti-choice MYTH that "mothers never regret having their children," there are many women who DO regret becoming mothers at all. Sorry to disappoint you, goofy (not really), I'm not one of them.

Take a look here too Ocean. YOU will appreciate it, even if others will pretend it doesn't happen.

Googlicious: i had an abortion 20 years ago and i *dont* regret it
Googlicious : i asked for forgiveness
Googlicious: i regret the sin
Yaaaaaaaaaaawn, give it a rest already, you look like the loons that spout hell and damn nation while playing with snakes and speaking in tongues. The hypocrites leading the blind. What an utter bastardization of Christianity.
Are you one of the horrible people that silences their children when they are molested and raped by men of the cloth? Such is the case at a local "nondenominational" school, two girls are raped by staff and more were to come forward, but their parents have decided it is better to make their children suffer and feel ashamed than bring these swines to justice.
I needn't try to offend you honey, you are an abomination, my input is not necessary to make you look bad.

Sorry, but when that was written, life was considered to begin at the first breath. No one considered fetuses to be alive in the same sense as a born human.
<quoted text>
Yes, and as is still practiced in some cultures around the world, if the FIRST born was a girl,the mid wives snuffed the child. It was most important to have the first born to be a male to inherit his father's holdings and be head of the family. If the woman kept bearing female babies, it was permissable to give the wife a divorce and send her on her way.

LC, I'm thinking he will respond that both are equally important. Which won't fly. If a fetus is given equal consideration, the woman with the uterus - the one taking all the health risks - becomes a slave. What she wants won't matter at all. Her newly defined role is to be a vessel, whether she likes it or not.
