In her original post, she mentioned the use of birth control...
So it is looking as though everyone is agreeing with me that there are choices.

Thanks Liam...

So the answer to that question was "no".
Thanks.
What a very stupid person you are. Must be depressing to be you - never mind, the only place you are a legend is in your own mind, which is probably just as well.

Yup. Birth control, abstinence, abortion, all are choices.

A very compelling argument.

Your mom help you with it?

Don't judge all others by the necessary actions you have to take. Pity that between the two of you, you have yet to find a sustainable argument with supporting evidence.

First, your pregnancy IS our business. This was decided by the courts long ago.
Actually, goofy, NO woman's pregnancy is your business, unless it is your own. Since men can't get pregnant, women's pregnancies are none of your business. EACH woman will decide for HERSELF whether or not to continue a pregnancy, and whatever choice she makes, it is HERS alone.

Furthermore, you can make all the false claims to "compassion" you want, but I'm not buying any of them. As far as I'M concerned, the ONLY agenda the anti-choice side has is CONTROLLING WOMEN, which of course means controlling our sexual and reproductive decisions.

I laugh at people who think marriage is some kind of marker for achievement. I never was a "traditional" girl and always knew I would never marry...even in high school. I just don't need it. For others who want to marry, I celebrate right along with them, but for me, it's just not important. I've dated 2 guys in the last 12 years and both of them were divorced. After watching what they went through, I ESPECIALLY didn't want to get married...lol. Divorce is a nasty thing and it's so much easier to just "move on" when and if you decide you no longer want to be in the relationship. For me, it was no fuss, no muss and it was GREAT! No lawyers, no courts, no arguing. It also helped that he was in the Middle East and had no idea of my plans...lol.
Totally agree. Not all women want marriage OR children, and not marrying or having kids is a perfectly valid decision. A growing number of women are choosing to be both single AND childfree, which of course pisses off the anti-choice guys who want free housecleaning and cooking services.:-)

Well we know that your opinion is irrelevant, but regardless of that fact, that's what I was asking for. What are you trying to hide?
I spent some time last night pondering your question.

Should a survivor of an abortion not only be allowed to live, but extraordinary means taken to help it live. Right?

Okay, so let's think about this. You stated "even if the mother doesn't want the infant to live." So...who will take care of this child? Chances are of it is a survivor of an abortion, it's around 20 weeks which the last time I read about it, gives it a less than 10% chance of surviving, and if it does, it's highly likely to have some profound health problems. Who's responsibility will it be? The chances aren't good it will be adopted. This little survivor has some major battles ahead of it and may need constant care. It's not only a major investment of money, but of time, energy, devotion, and possibly a full time job for two or more caregivers.

Again, it's much more than just "keep it alive." It's afterwards. It's not just the moment of conception or the moment it's born. It's a lifetime.

There are many variables here so there IS no cut and dried answer. I honestly cannot just say "yes" or "no" to this.

I agree with the poster who said "no abortions past the point of probably viability." My personal limit for an abortion FOR ME would be 12 weeks. I cannot speak for anyone else.

What you may not realize is that PRO-CHOICE means CHOICES:

The choice to have a child and raise it.
The choice to have a child and give it up for adoption.
The choice to terminate a pregnancy.

It covers ALL choices. Complete reproductive freedom. The ability to delay parenthood until one is completely ready to be a parent.

Imagine a society where every single child born is loved and wanted.

Isn't that far more appealing than a society where every child is born and many just exist...without love, nurturing, shelter, warmth, and the other things that make life worth living?

Pity that between the two of you, you can't present a plausible rebuttal to the supported argument I put forth.

If ou could, you'd be addressing it, not focusing on me.

Repeating that falsehood doesn't make it true. As I pointed out in post 228832, all life is my business, including the life you create.

Why do you set your personal limit at 12 weeks?

No choices?
If you're referring to my post, perhaps you should re-read it. And while someone does have the choice to have sex, I would think any relationship would suffer if it did not occur. Sex is an integral part of any loving relationship.

Apparently all you've got is not answering hard questions that you know you can't answer.

Agreed. I respect anyone's decision to do what's right for themselves, but sometimes I think people get married and have kids because they think they have to - that it will mean something if they don't - and then when they're miserable with their decisions (like Grunt) they get angry because other people did what they really wanted with their lives.

Then why do you spend all your time on here calling people names and focusing on their private lives? You don't argue, you just act like a childish ignoramus. You've yet to put forth any valid argument other than "you'll see!"

You can't even answer simple questions.
