When it starting referring to people as "retarded" that was it for me. I have zero tolerance for slurs like that.
One of our former posters has a son who is developmentally delayed. She's raked several posters over the coals for using a derogatory term like that.
In my opinion, that's no different than a racial epithet.
I was thinking of her while reading those posts. That's just not a word that anyone should tolerate. Shows how lacking in empathy and morals he is.

Coming from someone who thinks its ok o kill her hold, I'd say that's a compliment.
Again, you berate a woman who had to abort to save her life but have yet to offer how you'd deal with the situation differently. Something tells me you're seriously sick in the head. Not in a defamatory way, but really incapable of understanding what she had to go through. I'm sorry you have children. Must be why you only have them part time.

Back again for more? How about you actually answer M's prompt? Or present some FACTS against the data from the Guttmacher Institute?
He's too afraid to answer my question. He knows he's wrong. He knows he's not even worthy of being called a human being when he tells a woman who was faced with a life or death situation that she's evil for having an abortion to save her life. He cares nothing about people. He seems to be a loser who just likes to call people names and argue without the benefit of a valid argument, reasoning or evidence. He's scum. And to some degree, he knows it.

Odd that he argues for "human rights" when apparently a fully grown woman doesn't deserve the same kind of opportunities (s)he'd like to give to a fetus...it's not as though abortion is the only solution, but by god, it's insane how people like that are willing to strip other's rights without even considering that having open choices is essential for a functioning society.

Glad we're able to rip that argument to shreds...amazing what logic can do!

I take it you are "pro-life"? That means, that you think every woman should give life. Correct?
Then THINK what "pro-abortion" is and consider if anyone believes that every single woman should have an abortion.
I’m asking for clarification on your position. Were my questions too difficult to warrant an answer?

This one doesn't understand logic...lol.

People are always under the assumption that a woman who opts for an abortion WANT to have an abortion. It's not something anyone WANTS to do, it's a decision that usually comes after a lot of soul-searching and determination to do the right thing.

I have spoken before on here about some of the children I have taken care of. Born addicted to cocaine, FAS, and left disfigured and basically brain dead for their entire lives. Living in an institution where there is not enough staff members to offer any real human contact or interaction. My friend is a psych ward nurse and at times has to go to the juvenile ward. She hates it. Most of the children there are a result of women who abused drugs and alcohol while pregnant. These kids are zombies. Some have colostomy bags because their organs did not fully form. Some are chronically ill and bed-ridden.

But hey, at least their mothers didn't have abortions, right? Cause that would be the real tragedy.

No one on this thread, MS included, advocates for late-term abortions. We realize there is a vast difference between a 9-mo-old fetus and a zygote.

Every abortion is elective. There are laws against forcing women to abort a pregnancy for a reason.

I believe that abortion is necessarily a last resort for ANY pregnant woman whose fetus
a)threatens her life,
b)is severely/profoundly compromised, or
c)has died in utero.

This includes women in their THIRD trimester of pregnancy... but hey - usually that entails DELIVERY , not abortion.

So-called 'pro-lifers' know this, and yet, they choose to focus on those pregnancies which delivery would not save, and for which attempted delivery would result in the woman's death.

So far, the proposed "Personhood Legislation" has steadfastly dismissed the 'last resort' view, in favor of the 'let women die' view.

After all, we're just women.
We'll make more.

It's what we do.

Whom do you feel can make the decision in cases to abort the fetus in the last resort items a-c that you referenced?

"Pro life" people are ironically among the worst suited to understand the concept of truly respecting a life. Then these are the same people who don't want to help the poor and at risk children for "being leeches" and "clogging up the system." It's pathetic how they bitch and whine about fetuses having more rights than their mothers and yet scream bloody murder about how they're under no obligation to help after those fetuses develop into babies and are then born.

And they never give any sort of concrete reply as to what they think of sex ed, but I bet it's much too complex for them to imagine that their's more to sex and babies than just having them!

Seriously? You don't know the difference between a zygote and a 9-month-old fetus? For starters, a nervous system. Fully developed organs. An ability to survive outside the womb.

You just described Grunt to a tee. I see women who keep having children they can't afford and wish they'd stop, but I'd rather my tax dollars go toward keeping those children healthy, fed and living in a warm place.

Did you see the college that recently banned students from passing out free contraception? It was a Catholic school. And while I believe they are free to make their own policies, you would think they'd prefer their students use contraception than get pregnant and have an abortion. These people are insane.

Death is a part of life, even the intentional death we call "murder".

We can argue till the end of our species, but the unfortunate reality is, due to the natural killing machines that we humans really are, things like abortion will continue to happen.

If anything is in a human's way - whether it's an already-born adult we want to shoot to death, or an unborn - we will get rid of it by any means necessary. It's all about resources and who has how much of what.

How many people can this planet hold, realistically, if there was no abortion?

Ironically, that would result in more deaths due to overpopulation and overcrowding.

The homosapien is a self-destructive species that will eventually make itself extinct anyway.

So why get into a big hallabalu about abortion? The whole human species is already in the grips of mass murder-suicide mode inspired by your religions, anyway, so what's the big deal?

I "feel" that the pregnant woman not only "can" but "should" be the one (and unless she's unconscious) the ONLY one, to make the decision of whether or not to attempt gestation.

Currently, the law agrees with me.

Who do YOU think it should be?

If your wife had an ectopic pregnancy, would you just let her die before allowing a therapeutic abortion performed?
(That is just supposing that the law would LET you deny her treatment she wanted, it would not)
Perhaps the reason grunty is so adamant that abortion is ALWAYS wrong, is that a pregnancy to which he was a party was aborted by the other party. He just can't get over the idea that she elected not to gestate, and that she isn't serving time for 'killing his baby'.

But that does assume he got close enough to a woman at some point to have impregnated her - which is unlikely.
