Fine. Let them have child support begin at sex.

We need a right to choose amendment so these people will shut up and go back to worrying about their own morals instead of shoving their religious backed abortion laws down out throats.

Good point. Post birth abortions are none of their damn business.

any pregnant woman smoking would be guilty of child abuse, then. and contributing to a minor...

no drinking at all, for them now. in fact, unhealthy eating and being overweight would be infringing on that child's rights...

Of course...and that is EXACTLY what they are after. The object is to control women and the only excuse left is love of the fetus.

Exactly; which the anti-choice extremists will DENY, of course. However, those verbal denials are meaningless when we see what anti-choice politicians are DOING rather than saying, and not just in Kansas.

Anti-choice extremists in Mississippi, North Dakota, Arkansas, and other battleground states are targeting not just abortion but contraception as well. The idea of women being in charge of their OWN reproductive process and -- GASP!-- possibly choosing NOT to have children is anathema to these kooks.

Women who are interested in knowing how bad things were for us in the 1950's and 1960's would probably love to get a copy of Gail Collins' book WHEN EVERYTHING CHANGED, which was published in 2009. I just got it on a trip to our local used book store for less than $10. It was REALLY hard to put down once I started reading it, and I highly recommend it to all women. It's vital for all women to know what we helped to change and what we WON'T go back to.

Since there is no such thing as a "post birth abortion", you are quite correct.
