It appalls some folks that a woman can legally terminate her pregnancy for reasons other than her health or her life...because they firmly believe the fetus' right to life should trump her circumstances. I get this, but nonetheless, I firmly believe abortion should be available to pregnant women, regardless of the aversion to the procedure some folks hold. If you're not the person facing the risks inherent in gestating, or the person who's going to be the one raising that child once born, stay the hell up out of the process. Again, and again, and again....don't like abortion, don't contemplate, seek, or obtain one.

Unless you are a pregnant woman, or an obstetric practitioner, abortion is none of your business. Period.

Dropping all my weight
Going down full throttle
The pale horse awaits
Like a genie in a bottle
Fire in my veins
Faster as I go
I forgot my name
I'm a dirt torpedo

Reproductive slavery is your goal, you flaming hypocrite. You won't be happy until human women are officially, and legally, regarded, not as people, but as nothing other than factories for the production of other little humans.

Get bent.

Personally, I think this poster, whatever gender it is, was bent a long time ago. He/she/it is STUCK IN THE PAST by at least two centuries if not even further.

Judging from the nonsense "Zeffy" has posted on a different thread (Teen Pregnancy Prevention), it believes girls and women are ONLY suited for marriage and motherhood, nothing more. Apparently, the 19th-century "cult of true womanhood" idiocy is still alive with some backward folks.

You are an idiot. Stuck in the past has something to do with killing babies HOW? LMAO.

Abortion is as old as pregnancy, dear. I get that you don't 'like' abortion - but don't act like it just started last century, or some such nonsense.

Killing babies is already illegal. If you know someone is killing babies, you must immediately call 911, and report them.

The murdering slime promoting abortion are responsible for the deaths of 57 Million unique human beings in forty years. Except where abortion is imposed by the State, that's a record accomplishment. It's accomplishments? Well, although the proponents said the opposite would happen, we now have an unsustainable debt and an inability to give social security to our children and grand children. Although the proponents said the opposite would happen, the intelligence of women has degraded, as shown in the increases of women carrying disease. Although the proponents said the opposite would happen, females committing suicide and involving themselves in drugs and other self-destruction have increased.

Every social involvement of females has become aimless and destructive because of the impact on women of killing their own progeny. We've always seen a few sociopaths capable of continuing to murder other humans and even defend it. Some sickos will try to compare the very few and illegal abortions of previous millennium to the current mindless slaughters. However, the destruction of self-worth on the females in America as a group are not defended by the negative impacts of their behaviors.

The 'destruction of self worth' in women who choose to discontinue a pregnancy, is wholly attributable to the incessant campaign by others, who insist that our self-worth be destroyed because we dare to forge our own destinies, and ignore your opprobrium.

The number of live births in this country is TRIPLE the number of abortions. Be grateful.

If men were the ones to get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.

"Wholly attributable." That exaggerated phrase betrays a self-validation, or rationalization and projection. Attributing a woman's self-destruction to others doesn't say much about the innate intelligence of females, so it is you, who betray women and the Millions of rotting humans your rationalizations have strewn across the nation.

Now, if you want to portray women as inherently weak and needing male direction, then you should accept that male perception concerning human life is more valid.

I accept the fact that women know the reasons behind our reproductive choices, far better and more intimately than anyone else. Why can't you?

Every time you stoop to using failed, choppy methods of response in some type of self-infatuated dance of death, you expose your weakness.

Anyone starting their arguments from the position of diminishing the sacred, protected nature of human life has lost not only the argument, but their humanity. Such position betrays slime, not a supportable position. Listening to it is like listening to someone defend mass murders. There are certain positions that are simply inhuman and stupid.

Call me whatever you want, goofy. The idiot "zef" is still STUCK IN THE PAST by at least two centuries, and obviously still believes that women are good for nothing other than marriage and motherhood.

Oh, and killing babies is illegal already, in case you didn't know. Terminating a pregnancy long before there's any baby involved is not. Deal with it.

Exactly. The regressive anti-choicers can't stand the fact that EACH woman gets to decide for HERSELF whether or not to continue a pregnancy. Too bad for them.

Humanitarians ARE "dealing" with it, or haven't you noticed public disapproval of your little horrors has completely turned against you?

You propagandists need to be brought up on crimes against humanity charges, like Julius Streicher (only a propagandist) was tried, convicted and hung for his crimes against humanity.

Awwwwwwww, still whining over the fact that guys can't control women by deciding for us what our "place" is any more. Tough luck...for YOU, that is.

You anti-choice fanatics need to accept the fact that women DO have choices now at least in the United States. Those choices include both using contraception to avoid unwanted pregnancy and using abortion to terminate unwanted pregnancy. If it isn't YOUR pregnancy, it isn't your decision. Simple as that.

It looks like YOU are obviously the regressive moron who thinks women are "inherently weak and need male direction." The second part of your idiotic statement above just made that clear.

But guess what; a woman DOESN'T need "male perception" in making her own sexual and reproductive decisions. What part of "not your pregnancy, not your decision" is too hard for you to get?
