The abortions are simply referred to another PP clinic that does perform them. It's all in the family.
Of course. Abortion is very lucrative for PP. It is where they make their most money. Pushing the abortion alternative is in PP's best financial interest. Bitner knows that. She is just playing stupid. Which is not very difficult for her.

My point stands. Your descriptions of yourself as an "Atheist" bear no resemblance to the reality of Atheism. They are what an Evangelical Christian BELIEVES, without any real knowledge, that Atheists believe, feel, think and do. You were never one.
Glad YOU know what I was. Lol

You have no idea how the SCOTUS works, or what its duties are. RvW was based on an appeal based on the texas abortion law--which is how they got involved. The court found the law to be unconstitutional--which is their main function. And sinc every state that had abortion laws were based on the same terms and circumstances, they all were equally unconstitutitonal.

The mob does not get to vote on rights.

BTW--there are two SSM cases going to the court this year. We'll see.

I made no false claims.
If each state had been given the right to vote on something as significant as abortion, each state would then have the legal right to do so or not based on a democracy of majority rules.
If a pro-lifer lived in a state where it was made legal, they would have to live with that decision.
If a pro-choicer lived in a state where it was not made legal, then they would have to do the same.
However, 9 people in a population of over 300 million decided this major and moral controversial issue all by their lonesome.
Why are states given the right to vote for same sex marriage and not abortion? Of the 31 states where the issue of same sex marriage has been put directly to the electorate, it was voted down.

So because one state contested it, all states have to be subjected to "Their Highnesses'" ruling?

It's always one woman who decides what's best for all of us when no one was complaining.

No wonder Eve ate the fruit from the fobidden tree first.

Madeline Murray O'Hare complained when no one else did. Ironically, her son became a Christian and actively spoke out against his upbringing by his own mother.

Norma McCorvey, aka "Roe", complained when no one else did. Ironically, she became an anti-abortion activist.

Not only did they change the landscape but left a maze we've gotten lost in. Talk about going completely overboard losing all perspective.

Either they refer them to a clinic that does abortions or they don't help the woman get what she wants. Isn't PP there to 'help' women have a choice. Not referring them wouldn't be 'helpful'. Would it? I know it's hard but try to make sense.
Your failure to provide proof of your claims doesn't mean I'm not making sense.

Are you suggesting that the only place to get an abortion is a PP clinic?

Now that I had to dumb it down for you, please provide proof that they ONLY refer to other PP clinics.

Your misogyny is showing.

Yes, since it's the SCOTUS's function, they DO get to decide. And since all state's laws were based upon the same unconstitutional premise, they have to abide by that decision. That is how our gov't works.

If it hadn't been McCorvey, it would have been someone else. It was time.

Yes, complain about teachers not being able to preach at a captive audience of children. I have no doubt that if they were allowed today, and your child's Wiccan teacher wanted to lead the class in a ritual invocation to the Goddess, you'd be the one complaining. So, kindly can the hypocrisy.

You're the one losing all persepctive here. Your melodrama is duly noted.

I am not going to explain simple logistics to you. If you want to believe for some reason that PP does not refer women wanting an abortion to one of their clinics that does abortions, then so be it but don't bother the rest of us with your silly games.

What are you defending? It is their job to get the rid of the fetus.

Seems to me Ink's false premise is that every woman at PP holding a positive pregnancy test in hand is there for an abortion.

Are you kidding?
The people had spoke the same language. They were trying
to build a tower to heaven instead of trying to please
God to go to heaven. They changed their language on purpose.
So God spread them into different countries.

LOL, nonsense. What melodramatic crap.

I said nothing about what I believed, and I'm "defending" nothing. In fact, I asked YOU to defend YOUR position. I asked you for proof of your claims. Proof you have not, and can not, provide for a claim you cannot defend. If you were honest, you'd just say so. But you're not.

You cannot get around the fact that abortion is only a small fragment of what they do, and that they cannot be called "abortion mills" when only slightly over half of their clinics even perform abortions.

No, becouse God says that one must have faith to believe in Him.
plus you HAVE seen Him, and His work all around you, but like me for years, you chalk it up to chance, luck, coincidence, or just take credit yourself for many things when it was God all along.

Yea sto I would agree with you, if ANY OF THE VERSES said ANYTHING ABOUT A BABE IN THE WOMB, but the say. absolutely NOTHING ABOUT ABORTING A BABE.
Your whole argument was based on what happened to the guilty wife, which was her belly SWELLED "inflated " NOT "deflated ".
Her thigh would ROT.
and all would shun her. Which YOU said happens when a woman has an abortion.
Instead of trying to make verses condone a sinful act, and trying to see how much "world " you can have in you, and still have God, why not overshoot the other way.
I can promise you the bible clearly says abortion in wrong, compared to your sad attempt to make it right.
You have to go beyond the English translation. You have to break it back to the Hebrew. If you're not willing to do that, you have no rebuttal.
