What a load of shit. I love these excuses "love the sinner but hate the sin". Since you are a sinner why not focus on self hatred of your own sins? Bottom line, you hate and love to hate and especially hate others and "their" sins..

First off, abortion is a medical decision made by ONE person about HER body. Abortion is not now and NEVER HAS BEEN murder. You didn't "twist" about that, you just LIED about it flat out.
Again, you didn't "twist" that, you LIED about it.
Nobody "forced murder" on anyone, NOBODY forced abortion on anyone. You dont get to vote on MY right to make my OWN medical decision. Sorry dear, but that's just going to remain forever your tough shit moment. All your religous bullshit wont change that.

See that's yours and your ilk's ignorance and purblindedness. As for me, while abortion is, hands down killing, and as such, tragic, I'd rather a woman kill her unborn and America remaining a free country, than have fascism and religious intolerance rule the country I help defend, and have woman, and men, be deprived of their constitutionally protected rights, by fanatic extremists who think their view of any issue, specifically aborrion, is the only view.
We know what happen to Nazi Germany; we know what happen to the Soviet Union; we know what happens to women, and the men who defend them in Muslim countries to name a few.
I don't know about you, but if having 3,000 women a day terminating their pregnancy is a grain of sand of an influence in keeping our country free, being it on. Xtians believe the clean soul will not go to hell. We Jews believe the soul enters at birth. So, from a religious stance, abortion has no downside with regard to the unborn's afterlife.
Now watch the religious talibangelists like sassy, no relevance, dum dumb to also name a few, have a field day twisting my post.
CD: "fascism and religious intolerance"

Intentionally killing innocent preborn babies is intolerance & fascism on steroids.

Dumbass.

Consent to sex, is, was, and always will be the number 1 reason women get pregnant. This don't mean women (have) to carry a child, it just means they are with child.(SHE IS WITH CHILD) is the phrase used by most, and still used by some.
you can call me a religious nut, if you will.
the truth is, I may kinda be alittle fanatical, but had you lived my life, and then have your life completely changed in the blink of an eye, by a God, that just a few momments before, wanted nothing to do with any god, then you to may be alittle fanatic. Plus knowing you have eternal life, even though you deserve hell, is another reason why, you may get alittle fanatical.
I was born in 1971
I was born again in 2000
Not by man, or church membership, but by God Himself.
You and all others can be born again as well.
All one must do, is be Sick of the Sin in your life, and turn to God, for Him to come dwell inside of you forever. If you call upon the lord, from a pure sincere heart, He will come in and change you, into a born again believer, bound for heaven.
You would at that point be a (REAL) christian.
yet it is hard to be sick of Sin, if there is no such thing in the world You live in.
abortion in Sin, legal or not.
It may be legal to man, but all will answer to God, becouse His laws are written on the heart of everyone.
More baseless claims. Do you have anything besides your worthless opinion and boasting? You are no better than those you condemn. Go eff yourself.

I think Mill's assessment was 100% accurate. I think that the male policy and law makers of the 18th and 19th centuries, in both church and state, DID believe that it was "necessary" (for THEM, of course) to compel women into being wives, mothers and NOTHING more. To that end, girls received far less education than boys did, and they couldn't attend college. Women were barred from almost all the trades and professions that would allow them to live as financially independent single women. The few occupations that women COULD enter paid far less to women than to men doing the same job. And of course, women weren't allowed to VOTE.
This is exactly the type of oppression, injustice and open discrimination against women that the 19th and 20th century feminists fought so hard to eliminate, and, no doubt, what many conservative right-wing guys would like to see women returned to. You guys can't get past the fact that both marriage and motherhood are now CHOICES, which women can REJECT if they don't want to be wives or mothers. Sorry (not really), but the 19th century is PAST. Get over it.
Was it really that wrong for men in the 18th and 19th century to want to ensure that there would be enough young women available for the young men of that time to marry?

If they at that time had condoned the wishes of career-minded women that they be allowed to enter college and/or take up whatever career they wanted to, and in doing so they would be putting off marriage and raising a family until years later, say into their mid-30s, then a lot of young men would be put into a situation in which there would be a fierce struggle with men to win the hearts of the young women that did want marriage and a family at a young age. There would have been a lot more bar fights if you ask me.

Fast forward to today, I believe if you were to poll all the young men between the ages of 16-24 with the question "Should women put off their career until after they get married and raise a family?" the overwhelming response would be 'yes'.

Men don't want to wait years and years for marriage and a family. You women should take this into account before you blame the men of the 18th and 19th centuries as nothing more than a bunch of cruel jerks.

If women could deal with pregnancies, then they wouldn't be having abortions and the Pro-Life movement would have never started. Its a Catch-22.
You're upset. That doesn't mean there's a problem with abortion rights. There really is nothing you can do to stop women from making autonomous and confidential medical decisions regarding their pregnancies. You have no right to try to involve yourself in private medical matters. It's called HIPAA and it protects you, me and all other citizens.

Why are all of you linking abortion to religion? Abortion isn't a religious issue. My religion has nothing to do with my pro-life stance. I just can't believe the fact that we as a country allow someone to just walk into a Planned Parenthood clinic and have an abortion, no questions asked. I'm not saying that all people do that, I'm saying that our country allows that and it's hard to imagine anyone to justify that.
You don't have to imagine it. Read all about it. You obviously know how to use a computer.

For the "christian" extremists who think that girls and women were well treated in past American history, I think it's time for a little reminder of some facts you probably don't want to see mentioned on a public forum. Too bad. The fact is, we had an American version of Sharia Law in the 19th century. At the beginning of the 19th century in America --
-- Girls got much less education than boys did.
-- Girls' activities, especially for middle- and upper-class girls, were limited to "ladylike" pursuits.
-- Girls and women were considered naturally weaker and inferior to boys and men.
-- It was thought shocking, outrageous, and even scandalous for a woman to give a speech in public, especially to audiences of both men and women.
-- Middle- and upper-class women were expected to confine their activities to a "separate sphere" or their homes. Women were also expected to show the "virtues" of religious piety, wifely submission, and motherly domesticity. And they always had to be escorted outside their homes by a man.
-- Married women had NO legal rights, including to own property, keep their inherited money, enter into contracts, sign legal documents, or control what happened to their wages or their children.
-- Women who were single or had to earn money had very few job opportunities and were always paid less than men who did the same job.
-- Middle- and upper-class women were expected to wear layers of restrictive and heavy clothing, and corsets that were so tight that many women suffered health problems as a result.
-- Almost a million African women were chattel slaves.
-- Women were not allowed to vote.
-- Married women had no choices over their reproductive process. Any woman who got married was expected to produce children, whether she WANTED to be a mother or not.
In addition to the above, as if that weren't oppressive enough, conservative men of the 19th and early 20th century opposed every measure that improved women's lives, especially a woman's right to vote. THAT'S what the 19th century feminists fought so hard to change, and eventually succeeded in doing so, even though it took 72 years, from 1848 to 1920, to achieve that goal. The shame was that it took that long for women to GET that right to vote in the first place.
Do women really have it better now than two hundreds ago?

A lot of college-educated women are currently unemployed.

Women got the right to vote but have they helped to elect the best candidates? Even though most women are college-educated, they tend to vote with their emotions/hearts.

Single mothers have to spend a lot of money on day-care and wish they had more time to spend with their children.

Women have to spend a good deal of money on contraceptives and paying for abortions, unless they can get the government to pay for it.

Women who put career first and are now in their 30s and early 40s are struggling to find a man to start a family with and/or they are having trouble conceiving due to their advanced age.

I don't know, I believe if you took 100 young women from the 18th or 19th centuries are put them in the present day, after living in the present day for a few years, 75 of them would want to go back to their time period.
