Really? Specifically which posters have said they wanted late-term abortions made illegal?

But in your scenario, the distress is caused by what is NOT happening, so treatment would be psychiatric only (presuming fertility options were impossible or ineffective.) I know you have nothing but contempt for women who aren't submissive breeders, but many women have other things to do than play incubator.

Thanks for your opinion. See,there are women who want a child of their own so desperately,that they might become emotional wrecks over not being able to conceive,thus compromising their immune systems and leading to many health risks.
Kinda like when those women who abort late term "theraputic abortion" due to emotional issues.

Preventing suffering through abortion is different from killing a born human; for one thing, born humans have rights. But you and your ilk don't give a damn if a child suffers, or fights off death for a few years. The PLM motto is, "Once it's born, f**k it."

You WOULDN'T want to "condemn" them,would you?

Interesting! They are anti-choice like me.
But not like me: I assert women should have the right to bodily autonomy, personal risk assessment, and self-defense, even when pregnant - and even if they've gone into labor.

Of course, since an abortion is defined as 'ending a pregnancy before term', a Caesarian Section, and a premature birth are both abortions.........as is miscarriage at any stage of pregnancy..........

My mother taught me to mind my own business. She disliked abortion, but never thought it should be illegal.

Premise 1: No homo sapiens may force another party to support them without that party's permission

Premise 2: Biologically speaking, one does not become a member of one's species until one is born alive. Legally speaking, fetuses are not people and have no rights.

Conclusion: Gestation is a personal decision, not an obligation.

I don't agree with the court's decision. Contraception is a necessity for most women at some point in their lives. All forms of it should be covered so each individual woman can figure out which works best for her. It's flat out wrong that an employer can now intrude on these decisions by limiting her choices based on religious beliefs. Religious beliefs that are false, I might add. Science/biology proves those beliefs to be false. There is no pregnancy if there is no implantation. Simple as that.
The employee IS paying for her health coverage. She works and is paid in money and benefits. Next thing you know, the employer will decide where a person can and can't go on vacation. Church retreat -- check it okay. New Orleans during Mardi Gras -- no way!
Without fertilization there is no implantation. Fertilization in man only occurs when male and female gametes fuse, making it the first process resulting into birth. It is already alive before it is implanted. This has nothing to do with religion,nor pregnancy. It has to do with the beginning of a human life,as we know it. An ectopic pregnancy grows outside the uterus,it doesn't implant,is that a pregnancy?
Before the 70's conception was always considered when life begins. Now,"conception" no longer mean"fertilization.” It was redefined to mean implantation of a blastocyst on the uterine wall, typically occurring 1-2 weeks after fertilization. Now you tell me why was it changed,was it a scientific break through? There was no scientific evidence to validate the change,that I know of. Me thinks it was political.

Many gays defend marriage as one man and one woman. There's nothing wrong with homosexuals or homosexuality. Gay rights are human rights, to live with respect and dignity, not to rewrite marriage law for sex segregation.

<quoted text> What does the exact moment of conception mean to what you are talking about? Nobody can tell the exact moment. Perhaps in the future,we can. There are women who find out right away that they are pregnant thanks to technology today depicting signs of early pregnancy where as years ago,we didn't have that luxury. Didn't change ANY facts about the conception and existence of that child. In fact,many women give birth without even knowing that they were pregnant OR in many cases until late in pregnancy due to irregular periods. So?
""""" """"" """"" """"IOW, if life begins at conception; can anyone tell the z/e/f's birth date??"""" """"" "
Oh my goodness. Are you freakin serious? Another proabort who doesn't understand what a BIRTHDAY is. It is the day that you are birthed. Conception is irrelevent.
*sigh* speaking of mind-boggling.
Are you changing your tune again, dweebiekins? Aren't you one of the many anti-choicers whose favorite argument against abortion and birth control is that "life begins at conception?"

Keep this flippy flopping up, and we'll have to call you Sarah Palin.

It's not easy at all. In fact it would be the ultimate in selfish, self absorbed arrogance to believe that it would be acceptable to simply not have an abortion yourself while human lives around you are still subject to legal termination.
During the period of slavery it would have been selfish louts like you who would have said " Slavery is wrong? Well then don't own one. See how easy that is ?"

Are you also a moron by choice ?

An ectopic pregnancy is specific term; it is not related to a uterine pregnancy. The latter begins with implantation.

For most of our species's history, life was considered to begin at the first breath; many people still believe that. The medical definition changed because the facts became clearly documented; that's how science works. BTW--science doesn't even address the idea of when life begins, because that's a philosophical question, akin to "when do we truly become human"?) For many people, we start becoming human when the brain develops, and that doesn't proceed until well into the 6th month.

What's arrogant is deciding that pregnant women lose all rights to their own bodies because they happen to get pregnant.
