The article is a load of crap. IT makes less sense then global warming. The statistics are a complete fabrication.
It is untrue.

And don't conservative christians know aborted babies get a fast lane ticket straight to heaven? The unborn a free of sin.
What could be better than than that? No toil here on earth, straight to the kingdom of god.
For plenty kids that would not be a bad deal at all.

Since you are saying this article is untrue, can you explain how you know this? Also, can you please provide a link or something to read where it's untrue.

I know, right? Why is it that X-tians are so hypocritical? Even towards 'babies'?

And why am I not surprised?

Nope.. I got no other sources
How about you just read the article. It points to a total of 4 cases here in the US Where sex-selection abortion was possiblely requested, then claimed that is just the tip of the iceberg, But had no more facts.
In Asia and India the desire to have a son not daughter is a cultural thing and the society makes girls unprofitable to the family.
Not the same case here at all.
The story is BULLSHIT.
And person who can read an article about abortion without crying should be a le to see that.
It's just like when they say Obama is a communist. They cannot prove he is a communist, they only speculate he might be because they hate him
Same thing with global warming. Most people do not understand it, so it has to be false.
Conservative journalism. There ain't nothing else like it.

No I can't provide a link that says this particular article is untrue.
I did read the article and found the title does not even come close to the facts in the article. The undercover work found 4 cases where sex-selection abortion was possible. and then claimed that was the possible tip of the iceberg, but offered up no other facts other than, In Asia and India it happens, and here in the USA we have Indians and Asians. The Article is bullshit.
IT was designed to make people angry about abortion and nothing else. Just one more angle to the same old story. Nosey people don't want other people to take advantage of medical procedures that gross them out.
Personally I hate the idea of organ transplants, and believe wholheartedly that those procedures have no place in our society. The mutalation of the dead is against gods way too. NOt to mention the doctors who harvest the organs have to hover over a person who is going to die, so as soon as they are clinically dead they can rip into them and pull out their still warm and working organs. Then shove that organ into another person. That person will have to take drugs the rest of their life, and bsically becomes a slave to the medical industry.

He knows it, because he has more than one functioning brain cell; funny how that works..........

One can't prove a negative, but I submit that you can't prove the assertions in the 'article' either. Feel free to give it a shot, though - I can't wait to witness your mental contortions while you attempt this. You have all day.

Since we donated our son's organs and tissues to folks who had been on transplant lists for some time (one of his kidneys went to someone who'd been on the list for over a decade [!]) I'm fairly certain the recipients were willing slaves. I have to say, that being able to do this was one small way to keep my beloved child alive, and in the same circumstances I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Of all the decisions I had to make that day, donation of his viable parts was the easiest. He was 23, full of life, a happy person, and to have failed to offer others a second chance as a result of his passing was unthinkable. What was the point of his death otherwise?

It is wonderful that your son was able to save lives, shove. He had no further use for his organs/tissues, why not?

Re: the article, I love how they leap to conclusions based on nothing at all but mere speculation, then state definitively that it's "rampant" and an "epidemic". One has to be pretty dull and naive to just take their word for it without any proof. One also must have to have pretty low standards as to what constitutes "proof."

As you well know, the so-called "pro-life" stance is held (in the main) by those whose emotions are captivated by the thought of the 'dear little babies', and haven't room in their heads for anything else. Abstract notions such as 'proof','facts', and 'concrete evidence' don't figure in there, and for the so-called "pro-lifers" that stuff is entirely to be dismissed as 'spin'....not to mention the idea that women have more than one purpose.(That one utterly fails to gel, in what passes for the mind of a fetus sniffer.)

That is just fine. There is absolutely no reason why my oinion on
medical procedures should influence anybody's ability to take advantage of a medical procedure. The same is true for abortion. Wheather or not you or I approve or disapprove should have no influence on the procedure, or someone's ability to get it. IF the medical field finds medical resons to stop doing a certain procedure, or prescribe a medication, that is why it should be changed or abandoned. Not public outcry over the "grossness" of the procedure. Abortion is not a pleasent subject. Those who work to deny people access to it, are denying people their right to the full benefit of the so called greatest healthcare system in the world. And that is wrong, regardless of how anyone feels about the moral aspects of abortion.
I also feel the ban on stim-cell research is/was a mistake for the same reason.

My idiot son is 27 has 2 kids. MY wife and I made a commitment to those kids because he and their mother were just dumb kids, and needed help. After 10 years of taking the financial burden of my grandkids, and taking his visitation while he vacationed in the county jail for 18 months, and paying his support, then giving him a job, and still paying the support, and taking a huge involvement in their lives...when he told us his current girlfriend, a 40 year old not quite recovering crackhead was pregnant, and wanted an abortion, We were happy to hear that. However on the day she did not show up and deceided to have the kid. I am happy to have another grandchild, but would have gladly supported termination of the pregnancy. This time though, the kid is not the product of 2 stupid kids. It is the product of 2 dumb adults, and I must separate myself from their lives to avoid financial ruin from supporting a 3rd kid that is not mine.
I still believe abortion would have been a better solution to thier lives, and I am glad it was an option they were able to consider, I truly wish it would have went that way, but it is not my decision...or anyone else's.

At least your son had the benefit of your obviously sane and rational example. It's not your fault if he chose not to follow it. I'm truly glad it was there for him, and that it's still there for his children.(I suspect all of them will continue have access to their grandparents, whether they utilize it or not. You sound like a really decent person.)

Yesterday would have been my son's 25th birthday, and unfortunately, we celebrated it a bit hard last night. Please forgive my emotional outburst - it was never meant as a criticism of anyone, and I apologize if it was taken as such.

Atheists and others not respecting "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" commonly use their children (dead and alive) as battering rams in society to force their ungodly and inhumane views on society.

Religionists and others not respecting the born, commonly use the law as battering rams against us, to force their ungodly and anti-born views on society. This is why we had to legislate the existence of RIGHTS to "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
Religion is against all three, and it's actions speak much louder than your words.

Exactly.

Although, for many of the PL women I have seen post on here, there really is only one purpose: breeder. So many of them are uneducated, ignorant and devoid of anything that approximates usefulness in any other endeavours, hence their desire to force the rest of us to be the same.

Once they can no longer breed, I wonder how they would feel about being "excessed." Following their disturbing way of "thinking", it would make perfect sense.

See....
This is why I prefer to post to the abortion threads. Such passion. Such vitrol.
I hate that I have started some harshness here.
to: God is the only choice
Yes I did make assertions. I read the article entitled "SEX SELECTION ABORTIONS RAMPANT IN THE US" I did not find that claim to be proven.
In the article they stated some undercover work had found 4 cases where the person seeking an abortion was possibly doing it because they were unhappy with the sex of the baby. Then the article "asserted" that would be the tip of the iceberg.
The only other point made in the article was Indians, and Asians, particularly Koreans, live in the USA, and in their homeland abortions to female fetus's was widespread. Again making another "assertion" about Indians and Asians.
My assertion was the Article is BULLSHIT and I stand by that assertion. I found no other reference to this particular article on the web, and also no other stories making the same claims about abortion in the USA. There is plenty about China's policy. I feel this lack of information suports my previous "assertion".

Remember God has a plan for each and every one of us. We are all God's children. The unborn are free of sin, and their souls will forever be in the kindom of God. We are born into sin. We will all have to face God. So let the Almighty be the judge. You should simply enjoy what god gave you. The unborn do not require your assistance...what happens to them, is part of god's plan.
Amen

Just for the record, there are literally thousands of 'gods' and your reason for not worshiping any of the others is my reason for not 'choosing' yours.

If 'god' were the only choice, you couldn't really call it a choice at all, now couldja? There has to be something to choose FROM for there to be a choice.(In case you're too thick to understand this, which is probably why you think gestation is also the 'only choice'.)

Go pray to something.
(Just a suggestion.)
