sure well level the circumstances is it right Health care has to cover abortions and not infertility? How about lets charge 20k to kill a child and 20k to recieve infertility treatments. Maybe having to mortgage their homes to commit murder would make them think twice about their decision . They have God to answer to not me . I also feel if your going to have an abortion may as well have your uterous removed. This subject burns me up. Men should have a right in the matter as well if he is willing to take responsiblity why kill the child?

Your infertility problem is yours; no other woman has to suffer to give you a sense of equity. Pregnancy carries risks; not being pregnant isn't a risk. Doctors treat risks and insurance covers risks.

There are a half-million children out there able to be adopted; what's so frigging holy about your uterus that the child you want has to come from it? If you want to make abortion more difficult to get, then people like you will have to step up and adopt the unwanted offspring. We gays can't adopt them all.

Many women who abort later have wanted children. And how does a man take responsibility for a 9-month pregnancy and all that goes with it?

It's not about you, or men, or ANYONE ELSE but the pregnant woman and her decision.

Greetings Peter! I also noticed this snippet:

"now that were encouraged by a doctor to abort their baby due to the child having spinal issues they didnt even give their daughter a chance to live they terminated it because they didnt want the challanges of a special needs child..."

How many special needs children are adopted? For that matter, the OP didn't explore any option for adoption. Instead she lamented the amount of money it cost out of pocket to have her very own, biologically connected baby.

And yet, even after producing the next Einstein, she still seems unhappy. Go figure.

Don't take your frustrations out on me. BIRTH means you were birthed-think HAPPY BIRTHDAY. If you or your child dies while in utero-whether miscarried or abortion,then they will never be birthed UNLESS it is a partial birth abortion.
I am kinda surprised by this kind of ignorance coming from a woman of your age.
..........and you're STILL drunk.

Go home, already, drunkie.

Hey, lady!

I would have to think long and hard whether I could condemn a child to a life of hardship and health problems.

I am a woman , I feel abortion is murder in so many ways. There are other alternatives such as the morning after pill, birth control, condoms, keeping your legs shut. The potential father gets no say in the future of his child totally up to the mother.I know couples now that were encouraged by a doctor to abort their baby due to the child having spinal issues they didnt even give their daughter a chance to live they terminated it because they didnt want the challanges of a special needs child. I know there is rape and health issues but again there is adoption, the morning after pill.
Next time a woman has a spontaneous abortion, you go call her a murderer and see what type of reaction and feedback you get.

Probably about the same reaction you'd get if you accused the wife of a man who just died of heart failure as the result of a congenital defect, of murder.
Stupid question.

I wrote and you quoted me:
""""" """"" ""Pedophiles get off on terrorizing their victims. Somehow, I doubt women who go through with an abortion get off on it """"" """"" ""
Then you responded:
"The woman got *off* while she was having sex not caring about whether or not she got pregnant. IF she did care,she would have abstained while fertile. Her orgasm was more important to her than anything."
That's where you made the comparison.
My comment wasn't regarding two consenting adults having sex,it was regarding your statement that the pedophile gets off while terrorising his victim and that women who go through abortion don't get off. OBVIOUSLY the fate of her existing,developing child is in her hands if she has casual sex without caring if she gets pregnant or not. Which,btw would lead to her killing her child. Her orgasm is more important than anything to her. Sounds like a control freak.

If a woman doesn't want to create a child during sex,she would do EVERYTHING possible to avoid having sex while fertile. And like I pointed out,many today use birth control of all sorts so that leads to me the conclusion(after looking at our abortion stats)that she is selfish. There have been times that I had to abstain for the better good of not getting pregnant( like when I had upcoming surgery for instance). Todays proaborts don't care about self-control.

You made the comparison. You're the one who is saying a woman who is considering abortion is just as evil as a child rapist. You wrote it, you own it.
A man who rapes little boys is the worst of the worst. He gets off on terrorizing small children, for kriisake.
A woman who has an abortion is not getting off on terrorizing anyone.
You think there's no difference? Yeah, you think there's no difference.
Mind boggling to normal people. I tell ya.
<quoted text>
You think child rapists suffer? You think they are misled and scared and deceived and if they just had some help they'd stop?
Uh no. I said that abortion was evil. YOU said that a child rapist was worse. I responded that BOTH were evil after YOU added in a question to me regarding if a Pedophile was in that group. I said ABSOLUTELY as in they are just as evil. I own what I write but let's not take things out of context.

A woman saying that she supports killing as choice (abortion) is a premeditated killer. When she ends up with a crisis pregnancy or one where she just can't be bothered,she ends up aborting. MANY of them are moms and they teach their children that abortion is acceptable as a choice.

""""" ""You think child rapists suffer? You think they are misled and scared and deceived and if they just had some help they'd stop?"""" """

I have no clue if a child rapist suffers. Maybe sometime after the rape he might. I don't know. I am sure his or her conscience kills them with guilt. No,I don't think that they are misled and scared and deived and if they had help they'd stop. I NEVER said that. I don't know the mind of a rapist. Sorry.

I do however,know the mind of MANY women who have aborted(friends,strangers alike who have shared their stories with ME and others). There was guilt from the very beginning. In an attempt to cover up ,they killed their conscience-temporarily and it came back to bite them.

I didn't deliberately leave out "based on religious beliefs". I think that it works either way-with or without personal beliefs. Either way,the insurance companies cover what THEY want to. THAT was my point.

I don't know if I am not covered because of religious beliefs. What difference does it make as to the reason.

Pregnancy means "with child". It means that a woman has conceived her offspring whether in a dish or in her body. A woman going through IVF will wait for CONCEPTION and then,the process of carrying and nurturing her child once the new life enters her OR anothers body(surrogate).

Do me a favor and don't declare something a *fact* if it isn't. It's deceptive.

You want to force others to go against their religious beliefs and principles. You are discriminating and being intolerant.
