No one wins when an abortion happens. That having been said, it is no one's right to tell another what their decision must be about very personal matters.
The right wingers will march as they may and cry "murder, most foul!".....that doesn't make it so. Life begins long before conception, but we haven't outlawed certain wastage practices prior to conception. Sustainable life may begin closer to 20 weeks gestation in most cases. Those who believe that it begins at the moment of conception have had that notion handed to them by some (arbitrary) arbiter of these things...for there is no verse in the Good Book that says "life begins at x weeks."
Very few of us advocate the notion that abortion makes everyone involved happier. It doesn't. Abortion should be avoided whenever possible for fairly obvious reasons. It may in some circumstances be the lesser of two evils and I don't propose to tell anyone what decisions they ought to make. The consequences of personal decision should remain the consequences of personal choice. It may not be a Roman notion, but it is a quintessential American idea.
The only "quintessential American idea" pertaining to abortion is that we have the inherent, inalienable right to life. We always have that right, not because some pompous agist bigot decrees it, rather because it is a natural part of who we are. Human rights do not begain at some arbitrary point during our lifespan just because some bloodcrazed tyrant says so. All humans always have human rights at all ages.

On December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. On December 23, the Declaration and the Constitution were removed from the shrine and placed between two sheets of acid-free manilla paper. The documents were then carefully wrapped in a container of all-rag neutral millboard and placed in a specially designed bronze container. It was late at night when the container was finally secured with padlocks on each side. Preparations were resumed on the day after Christmas, when the Attorney General ruled that the Librarian needed no "further authority from the Congress or the President" to take such action as he deemed necessary for the "proper protection and preservation" of the documents in his charge.

Women have the closeness and intimate conduct with the children therefore, what they do has more influence on their children. A good dad will have a very positive effect on their kids but a bad dad's behavior can be buffeted by a loving mom.
Have of our children only have partime dads.
Women have freedom of choice and that means she has a choice not to have relationships and children with deadbeats.
So lesbian couples would be double good for kids, right? Two moms, no dads. What do you think?

<quoted text> Being "free and loose" regarding habits(i.e eating dinner at the table instead of in front of the tv..or having to say grace before meals together vs just digging in) is not comparable to morals.
Times have changed and must has been lost. Not one person can deny that there is a negative over all change regarding family life. My brother is separated for years from his wife,while raising a daughter. He KNOWS that this is all his daughter knows. It's not normal and/or desirable to say the least even if she doesn't know any better. They try to make it work but that in itself is a dysfunction and he knows it. She lives it. Going back and forth to each parents house takes its toll. She then has learned how to manipulate in order to get her way during those teenage years. THAT is not "normal" even though many are in divorced situation.
Parents are afraid of their kids. ESPECIALLY teenagers who start with the independent attitudes. Normally,teenagers go through their moments,but add dsyfunction and that kid rebels even more.
The parents are racked with typical "working mom guilt" so they tend to cower from potential confrontations,so they coddle. Not only that but MANY parents are bad examples and then they expect to teach their child morals. Kids are not stupid. Tell a kid that they are too young to have sex,while YOU are sleeping with your bf or gf,and they will laugh you out of town.
You have to live morals in order to teach them.

First off, that is not law, its a pretty speech tho.

Second, keywords: ALL MEN. Not all zygotes, embryo's or fetus's.

Nice try tho it seems to be all you got, and franky honey - it falls far short.

I'm just pointing out that Trashy is a hypocrite. She whines about PC having so-called dysfunctional families (when they're not), but gives YOU a pass because you're PL, even though, "technically", YOU grew up in a much more "dysfunctional" family than any of us.

Here's a prime example of what's been discussed. A biography about the guy who wrote and sang "This Land Is Your Land". Born in 1912, he is part of the Greatest Generation. Bet his life was pretty typical, too.
"Early life: 1912–30
Woody Guthrie's Okfuskee County, Oklahoma, childhood home as it appeared in 1979
Guthrie was born in Okemah, a small town in Okfuskee County, Oklahoma, the son of Nora Belle (née Sherman) and Charles Edward Guthrie.[4] His parents named him after Woodrow Wilson, then Governor of New Jersey and the Democratic candidate soon to be elected President of the United States.
Charles Guthrie was an industrious businessman, owning at one time up to 30 plots of land in Okfuskee County. He was actively involved in Oklahoma politics and was a Democratic candidate for office in the county. When Charles was making stump speeches, he would often be accompanied by his son.[5] Charles Guthrie was involved in the 1911 lynching of Laura and Lawrence Nelson. His son wrote three songs about the event and said that his father was later a member of the revived Ku Klux Klan.[6]
Guthrie's early family life was affected by several fires, including one that caused the loss of his family's home in Okemah. His sister Clara later died in a coal-oil (used for heating) fire when Guthrie was seven, and Guthrie's father was severely burned in a subsequent coal-oil fire.[7] The circumstances of these fires, especially that in which Charley was injured, remain unclear. It is unknown whether they were accidents or the result of actions by Guthrie's mother Nora, who was afflicted with Huntington's disease, although the family did not know this at the time. It leads to dementia as well as muscular effects.[8]
Nora Guthrie was eventually committed to the Oklahoma Hospital for the Insane, where she died in 1930 from Huntington's disease. Judging from the circumstances of her father's death by drowning, researchers suspect that George Sherman suffered from the same hereditary disease.[9]
When Nora Guthrie was institutionalized, Woody Guthrie was 14. His father Charley was living and working in Pampa, Texas, to repay his debts from unsuccessful real estate deals. Woody and his siblings were on their own in Oklahoma; they relied on their eldest brother Roy for support. The 14-year-old Woody Guthrie worked odd jobs around Okemah, begging meals and sometimes sleeping at the homes of family friends. According to one story, Guthrie made friends with an African-American blues harmonica player named "George", whom he would watch play at the man's shoe shine booth. Before long, Guthrie bought his own harmonica and began playing along with him. In another interview 14 years later, Guthrie claimed he learned how to play harmonica from a boyhood friend, John Woods, and that his earlier story about the shoe-shining player was false.[10]"

Aaaahhh, the good old days.

Wrong.

It depends on the parents.

Please STOP making unqualified generalizations.

In other words, do you think you can use the words "sometimes", "some", or "often", for example?

Lala you said quite a few times that while your mom was at work that YOU kids did all the work. That is what you resent. Your mom CLEARLY wanted what she wanted REGARDLESS of your Dads condition that led him to having to stay home. Had he been fully capable of working,she would have STILL worked because that is what SHE wanted. She was a rebel,remember?
Seriously? Where do you get this CRAP from? My dad worked until he was SEVENTY YEARS OLD, ya stupid thing. We kids did NOT do "all the work". EVERYONE chipped in. EVERYONE - including both of my parents - were busy busy busy with work and helping all around the house.

It is unfortunate that some mothers have to work while their children are small. It is also unfortunate that some mothers would rather work than care for the kids they gave birth to. It is unfortunate that kids grow up in daycare and not under mom's wing. It is unfortunate that women don't bother to marry the fathers of their children or if they do, decide to divorce them because they have differences, the basis of most divorces. It's unfortunate that dads can so easily be replaced either by another boyfriend or the government.
I really respect the parents who worked through the tough times together to be able to spend enough time with the kids to have some influence over them and show them a personal closeness and love.
You never answered me.

Who raised you? When did they work? Did they receive public assistance? Did you require child care?

You keep posting all these wonderfully inaccurate generalizations about people YET YOU YOURSELF grew up in a one-parent household.

People that would let their grown children die, writhing in agony???

Trashy sASSy would not ALLOW her daughter to get a life-saving abortion. She would ALLOW her to die.

Painfully, slowly.

She should be investigated for child abuse.

Absolutely.

Human rights are the basis of our laws. And protecting human rights is the purpose of our laws. But placing the importance of tyrannical laws over the human rights that laws are suppose to protect is what happens when the morals of a once great nation began to crumble and decay. You somehow managed to overlook the keyword word "created". Which is the beginninning of an individuals lifespan. And zygotes are are what people are called at the beginning of their lifespan. If ALL MEN aren't zygotes, embryos, fetus, infants, adolescents, or adults than who do you suppose all men are? Age has nothing to do with determining the species of an organism.

If my daughter was a teenager,she would fear me. She knows that NONE of us are above temptation. She'd know that I would love her no matter what. The only thing is that my kids know that if they were involved in immoral behavior of some sort,that I wouldn't okay it.I would offer help and guidence but NEVER buckle to pressure.
They understand God interestingly enough and his plan even if its not easy to live in a dsyfunctional world.
