Dude seriously please take some courses in logic and critical thinking.
Like you said in your first line, advertisers try to CONVINCE consumers. They are not forcing you or any consumer to buy their product.
in the end the consumer is free to decide whether to purchase the product or not.
Now tell me how that compares with the government forcing women to make a personal medical decision according to fundamental evangelical christian dogma if they make abortion illegal?
By keeping abortion legal, you religious wack jobs are still free to espouse your rhetoric, we just don't have to buy it.
Its important to point out that trying to persuade women not to have abortions is not 'forcing women not to have abortions'. Do you understand that?

Also, when has our government ever 'forced' women to get pregnant? Women getting pregnant and then not wanting a baby is a problem that was forced upon on government. I doubt our government ever wanted to have to deal with this issue.

The US Supreme Court finally had to deal with this issue and in 1973 they decided to give women the right to murder the fetus/baby growing in their womb. Before this fateful decision, abortion was considered murder and was a crime. That abortion/murder is a crime is not an exclusive Christian dogma. Every religion and culture has it in their dogma that murder is a crime and most of them at one time considered abortion to be crime.

I feel sorry for all the girls and women who grow up in a nation that tells them that abortion is not murder/crime. You women have a self-assured confidence that you're doing nothing wrong when you have an abortion. I hope that one day you will step out of your Pro-Choice box and look at abortion with a different perspective, starting with the question 'could abortion actually be murder?'

Not so.
"But over the past 30 years, these prejudices have largely disappeared. By 1996, intelligence and education had moved up to No. 5 on men’s ranking of desirable qualities in a mate. The desire for a good cook and housekeeper had dropped to 14th place, near the bottom of the 18-point scale. The sociologist Christine B. Whelan reports that by 2008, men’s interest in a woman’s education and intelligence had risen to No. 4, just after mutual attraction, dependable character and emotional stability."

Wakey wakey. Educated women may postpone marriage, but for whatever reason their marriages seem to be of long duration.
A lot of men have always wanted a 'sugar mama'. Most sugar mamas today are the ones with a college-education and good-paying job, but some come from rich families.

Marrying a sugar mama will likely lead to a long duration because the husband and wife won't be agruing about money, which is the number one cause for divorce.

See that's yours and your ilk's ignorance and purblindedness. As for me, while abortion is, hands down killing, and as such, tragic, I'd rather a woman kill her unborn and America remaining a free country, than have fascism and religious intolerance rule the country I help defend, and have woman, and men, be deprived of their constitutionally protected rights, by fanatic extremists who think their view of any issue, specifically aborrion, is the only view.
We know what happen to Nazi Germany; we know what happen to the Soviet Union; we know what happens to women, and the men who defend them in Muslim countries to name a few.
I don't know about you, but if having 3,000 women a day terminating their pregnancy is a grain of sand of an influence in keeping our country free, being it on. Xtians believe the clean soul will not go to hell. We Jews believe the soul enters at birth. So, from a religious stance, abortion has no downside with regard to the unborn's afterlife.
Now watch the religious talibangelists like sassy, no relevance, dum dumb to also name a few, have a field day twisting my post.
I truly have considered this.
I do believe the babies go to heaven, and I aslo realize going through the process can be horrific for the woman.
I also don't want the USA to be like Germany, my father fought in WWII, and I'm sure He seen alot. He never would talk about it.

I respect you, and am greatfull people like you fought, but are you not concerned about "the way " abortion was made legal?

I also agree that No religion, should run this country, but again, if the desision was overturned, in the same manner, it was made legal, would that be ok with you?

I realize that this issue stirs the emotions for many, if not all, in one way or another.

Was it ok, that a few judges decided for all on this matter?
What will they deside next?
Other countries are already looking into (after birth abortions), and if a child is born with issues, then you can opt to abort it.

I know people say, that will never happen here, but many things are happening, that would make some roll over in their grave.

Even if abortion was legal for rape, incest, it would be a hard deal, but many would understand, but as it is now, the majority of abortions are done, becouse of oops.

Like, you said -I will now say,
Many will twist my words, or just tell me I post under other names.
Some names I've never heard of.

Bottom line, was it ok with you, how abortion was made legal?
Is it ok, that since it is considered a medical procedure, that many are being fotced to pay through their insurance?

Last -would it be ok with you, if it was overturned using the same process?

No it was nor seen as a "criminal act forever"--even in this coutry, abortion laws didn't even exist until antebellum tmes, and thn not in every state. When RvW went into effect, I think only about 20 states forade it altogether, another ten had exceptions and the other twenty had NO such laws.
The judges were pro-constitution; there is no basis for abortion laws in that document.

Did it ever accure to you, that the reason there were no basis for abortion, in the constitution, is becouse they just could not imagine why a woman would want to kill her child, before it was even here?

Look up the history of abortion. Then you'll understand why criminalizing it is considered unconstitutional. You can answer your own questions here, if you're not afraid of the information.

Abortion was legal and advertised when the Constitution was being drawn up. Do some research already.

So I have no opinion? Got it

You want me to read about how abortion was always a legal procedure?

Hoping I will see the light.

The child I fostered :His mother told his case worker :I am held to feed, and cloth my son, but I do not have to love him.

I realize that you and many think abortion is ok, and you also want everyone to (pitch in) on the cost, for the abortion.

Do I have an opinion or not?

Look I realize humans make mistakes, and I am in no position to correct you, even though if I were to do this, then the kill all crowd would be all over it. Lol

Abortion is killing, even CD, says so.
It is the killing of innocence (which is murder)

Yet thankfull Jesus died for All Sin.

For many I wish I were wrong, but after going from who I was, to who I am now, I have No doubt whatsoever, that God is real.

Many religions, in which people go through dead works and rituals, but I serve the only living God.
Let God be true and every man a liar.

I do not agree with your assessment.

Communication (or lack thereof) seems to be the leading reason based on what I just googled. It might be about money or how best to raise any children, but regardless of issue, it does seem to come down to agreeable negotiation and compromise.

That's right, NoRelevance, and women are free to use contraception to AVOID pregnancy too. Motherhood is OPTIONAL, not required, no matter what your toxic religious institution says.

Was it really that wrong for men in the 18th and 19th century to want to ensure that there would be enough young women available for the young men of that time to marry?
Uh, YEAH, "genius," it WAS wrong, since the expectation of young men that young women "should" be available for them to marry is one little step above SLAVERY.

It seems to me that you and other right-wing regressive guys long for those days, when women were deliberately excluded from higher education, and the opportunity to enter trades or professions. Thankfully for all women, those days are long GONE.
