If you heteros could get past vaginal/penile penetration as the only "real" sex, you could have great times with no pregnancy.

It is a mantra on here that women should have 'healthy sex lives' and shouldn't be forced to give birth to the resulting child.
How are you ladies going to have a 'healthy sex life' if all the guys keep it in their pants?

Out of everything I wrote, what makes you think to ask that type of question? It's completely out of context.
Sorry if I offended you. I didn't see anything to respond to except your last paragraph that seemed kind of hopeless. I can see that you don't want to answer. That's fine.

This country has been fundamentally changed--or said to be--many times in history. You people sound like the people who railed against social security when it was implemented.

That we CAN change is what makes us the greatest country on earth. We can allow individual rights and try to care for our poor and disadvantaged.

Is there a requirement that the abortionist be an OB/GYN?

You don't know your own state's requirements for abortion, or that Gosnell WAS licensed? Why bother to debate when you don't know what you're talking about?

LOL You think the last paragraph was anything more than general comments? Maybe sorta aimed at my ex's early demise and the mess he left me to clean up, but still more general in tone than the previous paragraphs specifically about my daughter.

Why would I be offended? Your question was out of context to what I wrote. That's not a reflection on me or my writing.

I know you won't understand this, but women quite often ENJOY having sex. Being used implies some form of coercion. Try thinking of it like playing a friendly game instead of predation.

Over-sexed? Not all women are frigid, ice empress.

I find it pitiful that you have this need to act like women just have to kill their child instead of not sleeping with a man who will leave her with "no support system or raising a child on her own". What is wrong with you people that you can't prevent this NEED to kill your child?
Abortion is the anwer? Shouldn't a woman respect herself enough to not allow herself to be used as a sex toy? Shouldn't she learn self-control? Shouldn't she use her brain and abstain during her fertile time if she is an over-sexed woman who can't go a day without sex for the sake of not becoming pregnant?
FAR FETCHED hu?

Don't let sassy get under your skin. She can't help having been born with an ice pack where her clitoris should have been.

We all know you're a warm, caring person; she just has no frame of reference in dealing effectively with born people.

I miss my daughter who would be 21 a week after Christmas. I missed seeing her graduate high school. I missed teaching her how to drive. She was going to have her first lesson the next day. We were going to have lasagna for dinner the night she died. She was going to clean her room. It was a 4-day weekend. Semester break. She was a sophomore in high school.
She almost died before being delivered. I almost died, too. Had we died, we never would have known each other. I never would have held her to my breast and nursed her. I never would have comforted her cries when she was too cold or too warm. I never would have heard her first word (it was not Mama), seen her take her first steps, or hear her giggle.
I did not have anything with my lost pregnancy other than lost dreams. He didn't survive, he didn't live. He wasn't as real to me as my youngest daughter is. She lived. She breathed. In and out. Over and over and over until the morning she stopped.
Don't you ever talk to me about dehumanizing anything you evil thing draped in a fake Christ. You think you're "honoring" a 30 plus year old fetus who never saw the light of day or felt the sun on his cheeks? You are disrespecting all lost pregnancies with your fakey fake concern for dead fetuses you'll never know about if you're not told about it. You wouldn't know humanity if it hit you right between the eyes. Especially when you continue trying to steal women's civil rights out from under them. Right out from your own daughters' feet!!
Your smugness won't save you if/when you have real issues to deal with in your life time.

She gets her jollies by asking bereaved women questions like that one - probably because she anticipates they will cause us renewed grief.
Maybe so. What I do know is that when you or I see a fetus, we see a fetus. She (and others like her) sees a newborn. You and I know these are different organisms completely. To her (and others like her) they're exactly the same, just at "different stages" of life. NR's ridiculous claim of 12th trimester comes to mind here.

I don't think there's any way talking sense into her or others like her. Or getting around it. She understood why my daughter's death was more meaningful to me, but thought that equated to making the lost fetus unimportant. She probably makes similar deductions with your insightful posts, NAP.

But that's her problem. Not yours. Not mine.

So how do you explain miscarriage?

Where's the miscarried 'baby's' right to life? They were conceived, after all, so by your reasoning, they must have been 'meant to be'... but meant to be what?

What is their purpose?

<quoted text> Ah,my ears were ringing. I knew somebody was talking about me.
This "strange sort of phenomena" that your witnessing lately, is your imagination my sweet John-K. I have a question for you Mr "I am Pro-choice" regarding your above statement "MORE AND MORE PEOPLE WHO IDENTIFY THEMSELVES AS PRO-CHOICE,ARE AGREEING THAT THERE OUGHT TO BE REASONABLE RESTRICTIONS A TO WHEN,WHERE,HOW AND EVEN"WHY" ABORTIONS SHOULD BEPERFORMED"........
You claim to be PRO-CHOICE,but you want to give YOUR opinion as to when,why,how,etc...to anothers pregnancy where it is said that it is NONE of your business. So,it shouldn't be HER choice,HER BODY,HER PREGNANCY? Why do you people contradict yourself? Here's what you are,...you are PRO-YOUR CHOICE-ABORTION when YOU think she should and when YOU don't think she should,you become ANTI-HER CHOICE-ABORTION.
Allow me to sum this up for you. You talk out of both side of your mouth. ANYONE who thinks like you(your rules,not hers)is just as hypocritical.
See,John-K my dear frie&#326;d,you and I are pretty much on the same páge. We are both ANTI-CHOICE. The difference between us is that you support her choice(what a good guy you are)when YOU think it is okay(in the first trimester).
Have a great day!!!
Dearest, you really ought to get that short-circuit between your ears looked at...your reasoning doesn't make the slightest bit of sense.

My day was well, thank you.

Ending an unwanted, medically meddlesome, rape generated, life threatening pregnancy does fix a problem no matter how much you kick and scream. Deal with it as opposed to blaming women or accusing them of being used or being a sex toy or being out of control. Not every woman is a frigid uppity bitch like you. You have NO idea the reasons or circumstances women deal with, you just like to pretend you do in your fetus worshipping fog.

Well in reality I give God the credit, since I was for abortion, just prior to this, and who else had a better senerio to not have a child?

I talked her out of an abortion, but it was still Gods deal.

Of course not. She's just too ridiculous. They were both so irritated that they can't pin the labels they want to on people, that they have to nitpick and lie.
