And no I do not want them to do what I want,all I want is for them to be educated on the long term effects of killing their baby in the womb.It's a trickle down affect that involves their whole family and friends. I will NEVER mind my own business when it comes to the life of an unborn baby.
Since you're apparently so omniscient about the effects of all abortions, please tell me about the long-term effects of having an abortion. Please also tell me how a woman having an abortion, perhaps an abortion she tells no one else about, has an effect on the entire family.

<quoted text>Sorry but you are wrong This leads me to believe you have killed a life in the womb. That's what you prodeathers do best. In order to ease your guilt you call it a "wad of goo". You disgust me.Talk about ignorance. You take he cake on that one sweetie.
It seems to me that you are more outraged by a woman's choice to end her pregnancy than you are about child abuse, child rape, child pornography, child neglect, etc. How much effort and faux passion do you put into these tragedies?

I would imagine if the boy (real men don't treat their significant others like that) is that violent then the woman in question should be seeking government assistance such as domestic violence shelters and probably seek a emergency protective restraining order. The pregnancy isn't the issue there it's the boy that needs to grow up or get out.

Some choose to attempt to bring the pregnancy to term. Of those, some succeed, some do not.
Of those that do, some choose to relinquish the child, as my mother did.
Some choose to keep and raise the child, as I did.
Some choose to terminate the pregnancy, as many do. When they do, it's THEIR choice, and THEIR decision, and nobody's business if they do.
Then there are those who find themselves pregnant, or plan a pregnancy, only to be told by their doctor that to continue the pregnancy could kill them, or that it WILL kill them, or that they will deliver a dead body or one that cannot survive or live any sort of normal life off of mechanical support.
They don't really have a choice.
Or those who tell the man they're pregnant, and the man takes the choice away by either beating them until they're not pregnant, or they're dead. Murder is a leading cause of death for pregnant women.

I got curious on the statement you made about murder being the leading cause of death for pregnant women. After looking at statistics from the CDC it appears they came to a different conclusion:

http://www.cdc.gov/reproductivehealth/materna...

http://www.cdc.gov/reproductivehealth/violenc...

I'll admit they use some older statistics however I haven't been able to find anything to the level you alluded to. CDC is giving a rate of 1.7 per 100,000 or 0.00017%

Of course real men don't do that.
Real men don't interfere in a woman's choice at all.
Not your body, not your pregnancy, not your business.
How would you feel if there were laws regulating YOUR reproductive rights? Hmm? Forced sterilization after you've turned 15 and make a deposit in the sperm bank? Not allowed to make use of it unless you qualify? Terms of qualification to be determined by a group of women only.
Sound good to you? No? Then butt out of OUR rights.

Reading comprehension fail on your part. I did not say 'the', I said a.
I got it from experience and the training I had when working in a domestic abuse shelter.
A woman is more likely to be murdered when she is pregnant than any other time.
Perhaps the stats have changed since then, but I doubt it could be by much.
Oh, and restraining orders? Too often not worth the paper they're printed on. Respect for the law is often even less than they have for women.

Maybe it's a guy thing (as in I'm not a woman so I'll never understand it) or maybe it's a legal issue I'm not aware of but why would she not be able to place the child for adoption. Forgive my ignorance here but I really don't understand the scenario you're presenting.
<quoted text>
When you carry a child in your body for 9 months, you bond with it, more deeply than you can possibly understand. It's a part of you. Giving that child away for adoption is like severing a limb, only worse. That limb doesn't isn't living and you don't worry if it's hungry, cold, being loved, or being appropriately taken care of.

Hormones play a BIG part in this. Every instinct in your body is screaming to hold on to that baby, to nurse it, love it, and keep it safe.

That said, these hormones generally don't kick in 'til maybe 5-6 months.

For many women, it's far easier to have an abortion and end the pregnancy BEFORE those hormones begin and before you fall irretrievably in love with that child.

I have two words for you:

Scott Peterson

Domestic Violence Shelters only protect for a limited period of time and never have enough funding to last long enough or for enough women.

Restraining orders are only as good as the paper they're written on. THOUSANDS of women are killed each year by the men they have a restraining order against.

Now let's add a helpless infant into the equation. She's not only protecting herself, she's got an infant to take care of and to worry about, and he has another tool with which to torture her.

Have you seen the stories of children stolen by their biological fathers?

I agree that the men need to grow up; but do you really want someone who would physically hurt a woman raising an innocent child?

You see, that's what's lost in this entire argument - the continued well-being of the child. It's not just a 9 month gig. A woman is a mother for life. They can be in their 30s and 40s and mom still worries about them, and still mothers them, but in a different way.

When you have a child, you don't get a day off. You can be deathly sick with a cold, and now you have to weight going to work to get paid or staying home to get well, but going without the pay. Same scenario with the child. Let's add in a minimum wage job with no benefits. And having to take public transportation everywhere you go. Ever had to take a puking baby on a bus? I have.

It's so incredibly complex, that there's not enough room to discuss even a tenth of the scenarios.

Bottom line. If you cannot be the mother that child deserves (financially, physically, emotionally, mentally) and know you cannot give the child up for adoption, an abortion is a responsible, loving choice.

As I said before, I'm passive pro life. Meaning if I was a woman I'd never have an abortion and I will never advocate it. If people ask me about my views I'm more than happy to discuss them but that's the extent of it.

As I said, your views, your opinions are irrelevant. It isn't your problem, and since you have no uterus, it never will be.

Thanks, it's been an interesting life, and at my age I'm getting really tired of the whole anti-woman attitude of the powers that be. Laws restricting our reproductive rights, to stop or make it more difficult for us to vote, to empower rapists to make our lives even more miserable than the rape did.
When I was first married there was no such thing as spousal rape. It simply was not a crime, even if it was forced on a woman only a few days after she'd given birth and ripped open her episiotomy, as was my case. Nothing to be done but cry and deal with the pain.
I was pressured to have an abortion, and that was just as wrong as those who pressure women to attempt to carry to term.
Thanks for your support!

I don't believe it's foolish or wrong sir. The 4th amendment is a shall not clause governing the states interaction with the citizen in that it protects them from unreasonable searches and seizures. Now if some state or the federal government tried to pass a law mandating an abortion then it very well become a 4th amendment issue (as well as other civil liberties) however this does not appear to be one if those cases.
<quoted text>
No, it is indeed wrong. You focused on just one part of the amendment, while ignoring the first clause "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects..."
That right to be secure in their persons includes the right of women to seek such medical treatment as they deem necessary, even elective procedures.

If anything, forcing women to gestate against their will would be a violation of the very clause you cite, the clause prohibiting unreasonable seizures.

Maybe the solution here is to keep abortion at it's current status and enact legislation and programs to make the alternatives more practical and reliable to actually give women more options. For instance revamp the foster care and adoption system to provide better care to children and help them lead better lives while they are under state care and expidite adoption to place them with wanting and loving families. Better funding for domestic violence protection programs to protect women and childre with harsher consequences for offenders. And finally if the woman still really doesn't believe she can go through with it then abortion is still an option.

Just a thought.
