No, he was not. You are also lying. No surprise.

No it does not. It means one supports her right to make her OWN choice, independant of other's agendas.

What her choice IS , is irrelivant.

Makes you wonder what happened in Tiller's office when they slipped out alive.

truth be told, you ignored it twice.
and you should have ignored it a third time because this answer is hilariously ignorant.
legislation is not based on existing law. legislation
"is" law.
And somehow you are trying to equate this to mean it's based on "someone's" emotions. Their ideals. As if there were no basis in law included.

Will you, just once, post without deception of one sort or another?

Everyone knows political correctness has made us all a little crazy.
We all walk on eggshells afraid of saying anything that might be interpreted wrongly.
A sports announcer was nearly crucified for saying a woman in the stands was exceptionally beautiful even though her career took off because of the publicity.
Too many children call the shots in public schools because administrators don't want to make anyone mad.
Professional people have been fired from their jobs because they were smokers and wanted to smoke in their car on their own time during a break.
There's plenty more. It's all the same craziness.
There are extremes on both sides.

"We all walk on eggshells afraid of saying anything that might be interpreted wrongly."

But when you do interpret wrongly and are corrected (such as your confusion in equating the terms "proabortion" and "prochoice) you won't accept your mistake.

That's crazy.

Was Tiller not aborted?:)
Sad, but to me it is the same deal, just a difference in time.
No, he was not, because he was not a pregnancy.

Gosnell was paid lots of money to perform late term abortions as did Tiller. Right?
From what I know, Gosnell performed illegal abortions, murdered infants, and murdered at least one woman.

Tiller did none of the above.

Do the unformed, unaware, unknown and unknowing get a choice? In what? Conception? Normal/abnormal gestation? Induced/spontaneous abortion? Delivery?
Where you grant a choice? And to whom?
You just described yourself and many others on here, and we let y'all live. L, but not outloud. Lol

I've read the statistics from Guttmacher and even they list health of the baby as extremely low reasons for abortion. They list various reasons of convenience very high.
Real women's real stories with Dr. Tiller, with the D&X and D&E procedures, with real issues have provided their stories. These have been linked here more than a few times over the years.

But you've never bothered to read 'em. Yet you smugly claim you "know" these were for convenience. You post like you know, but you don't. Like I said.

All you do is judge.

Anti-choice means that you don't want her having a choice to do one of those thing(killing).
Which are you? Pro choice or anti choice?
Wrong. Pro-choice means we support her RIGHT to make her OWN choice.

And adoption is not a reproductive choice, it's a parenting choice. It has nothing to do with a pregnancy.

The former illegally, the latter legally. We were talking about the legality of certain abortion procedures, lest you forgot.

When the society you live in puts NO value on the unborn LIFE, then there will always be guys like Gosnell.

Just given the child-like grammar mistakes, the inablitliy to distinguish one simple concept from another, as well as the inappropriate emotional outbursts, I think Gtown has a special needs issue. I asked him once if he was ever diagnosed with a disability. No answer.

I have to believe what Planned Parenthood and Guttmacher say. They are the experts on abortion.

You think 1% of over 800,000 is rare?

Not that it matters, the only number that matters is ONE: ONE woman, ONE pregnancy, ONE choice (hers.)

Rape is a violent crime. It's not the victim's fault if she becomes pregnant.
According to the NYT, only 1% of abortions are due to rape, so it's a very rare occurrence. Even 1% is unfortunate but, for most pro-lifers, still one of the only three exceptions.
