Do you consider abating an abortion, just to bring a child into a life of misery, hurt, and pain responsible behavior?
Now that's a good question. Personally, I understand , and even agree with that sentiment, however, there is the arguement that any life is better than no life at all. I believe that in the early stages of pregnancy, when the chance of natural miscarriage is relatively high, there are many considerations that be left solely to the woman/parents of the potentail child. But as the pregnancy progresses, and there is a very probably chance that the fetus would survive the pregnancy, then those considerations become fewer, and only the most legitimate reason to end a potential life should be considered.
Conservative Democrat wrote:
The argument about abortion will always spin on the fulcrum of the lesser of two evils. And, until men can gestate, we will not have a say so in that argument. An opinion, yes. A say so, no.
Not true, when you consider it's a life, potentail life, worthy of saving, that is not gender exclusive. "Forcing" a woman to gestate is not the same as "forcing" a woman to get pregnant. Decisions were made which lead to her pregnancy, and now her decision to abort involves another life. It's no longer about her, just as abusing her born children would not be all about her. Tell me, would "forcing" a woman to carry a viable fetus to term, without risk of her health or life, be any different than forcing a young man into battle to defend the continuation of our society?

You have confused an argument regarding the physiological differences between fetus and baby with my stance on abortion. Again, abortion isn't even legal after 32wks (excepting the life/health of mother). This crappy claim has been perpetuated (but not recently) by the likes of NR, Triple L, Doc, JM, and a couple others. They have been repeatedly corrected and I've repeatedly clarified my stance. Even in a post to you last week. Am guessing you didn't see it.
It was more about your consistent contention that abortion should be strictly about the woman's bodily autonomy. To even suggest that a baby wasnt born until the cord was cut speaks volumes about your complete inconsideration that there are two lives involved when it comes to aborting a viable fetus. It's not that I didn't see your attempted justification of what you said, it's that, because it's consistent with your overall arguments, why do you make excuses for it and refuse to own it?
Katie wrote:
Yes, I do hold the perspective abortion is a private matter. That it is one part of the whole package regarding women's reproductive civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy.
OK, so where did I misrepresent your stance on the issue?
Katie wrote:
Might I suggest you join forces with JM? She is of the belief I "argued" the banning of the D&X procedure. This was clarified for you last week; guess you didn't see that one, either. I did not argue the banning of or the act of the D&X procedure. What I did while others argued it was to provide facts that included more than the description of the gruesome procedure. Seemed most couldn't see the forest through the trees. One thing being now only the D&E procedure is an option. Or what Triple L and a few others keep promoting; C-Section.
You argued that the D&X procedure was a necessary option and misrepresented in the congress, you also argued that because the rate was so low that is was not a significant concern. As I said, I can link the forum we argued it in to clarify the discussion. BTW, dont compare me to JM just because I am calling you on your own arguments, and you dont want to be seen as the extremist that your arguments make you. JM lies, I dont.
Katie wrote:
I've counted a few people stating you're incorrect in your assessment of "mental health" covered by RvW. Like has been said by others and I said last week, BA, DvB WORKS WITH RvW by expounding on "mental health" and finally factoring in "emotional health" with it. Emotional health had been mostly ignored prior to DvB.
Really? I've yet to see anyone challange the fact that Roe V Wade didn't include mental health, nor have I seen anyone argue against the fact that Doe V Bolton went beyond R v W in it's definition of Mental health. D v B does not work with R v W it contradicts it's recognition of the State's important and compelling interest to protect potentail life.
Katie wrote:
BA? I am owning my arguments. I am not, however, owning your misinterpretation of same. Said arguments have been clarified for you, you should no longer be unclear. Feel free to let me know if you are, though
Wow, I am just restating your arguments and you are denying them. You either need to forget your need for appearance here and own up to your extremist, liberal stance, or rethink your opinion here Katie, it's just that simple.

I don't need the government deciding what is irresponsible behavior and what is not.
There is nothing responsible about having as kid you don't want.
So did you defend Susan Smith and Yates in their decision to get rid of the kids they "dont want"? The question is, when should the government step in to protect life, most Americans believe it is at viability.

<quoted text>Grandma,you can't be serious!You would have the police and courts involved in requesting such a personal situation as an abortion? You really want women to be controlled by city hall and be stuck in a court system that is backed up for years? Get real. Let's see: A woman is in delivery and needs a c-section. Sorry,we'll have to get a judge's order first. Tubal ligations,hysterectomies, and D&Cs? Nope,not without a city permit....... Do you really feel that women are so ....ing dumb that they need mandatory personal body management?
Look Thomas, just because you consider terminating a viable fetus as petty doesnt mean the rest of thinking America should agree. Is credit card fraud or cheating on your taxes a more compelling interest than protecting life,(mandated to the States by the constitution)? Where the F' are you coming from on this? Protecting life, even potentail, is, and should be, one of the utmost considerations of our laws.

Grumpy! How do you know that? Have you asked OL? If she thinks that condoms are a good (or at least not bad) idea; why would she oppose affordable/available birth control? Seems to me, and I've *known* her for quite a long time - she's opposed to abortion and in favor of means to prevent same.
OL - is my above comment correct?

The problem comes from this being a women's rights issue. Not a nebraskan issue or a californian issue, but all women. Why does a woman in NY get to have an easy access to a medical procedure but the very same woman have to go through endless hoops in MS or KS? RvW already declared the right to belong to all women; states are interfering with that decision.
<quoted text>
Yes they are.,and probably will continue doing so. To my understanding in Roe, during the first three months,states can't interfere at all. The second three moths states could regulate abortion,and the last three,states can bar abortion except to save the life of the Mom. If I'm mistaken let me know.,Pete.

Actually, junior, NO religion is exempt from verbal criticism, including catholicism and christianity. That means anyone can verbally criticize one or both faiths, just as women and men can cheerfully decide NEVER to have children. Deal with it.

No, Lu,it shouldn't. To be clear,in the case of the Philly doctor, he terminated viable fetuses. Women went to him because no one else would do it. In my opinion,healthy viable humans should not be aborted, ever,only in cases where the mothers life is at risk.

Sorry pagan, you still live in darkness. THe Bible tells us of eternal damnation, being witout God. Then there is the "firey Pit." Of course as a pagan you want to make this all about you, so the word Hell, is claimed by pagans. So what?
Hell, or whatever you want to call it opagan, is not about language or semantics, it is about being without God for all eternity, as you are.
Pagans lived and live in darkness. God is the Light that bannished the darkness. Of course that angers all you pagans. You are the mouthpiece of Satan and you don't even know it.
Go back to your tree worshipping and Druid rituals. The world of Light needed to simnplify things to help the early pagans understand the word of God. Since most of your ancestors sat around bonfires naked, occasionaly throwing a virgin in the fire to please the flame goddess, flame was used to explain Hell. You aren't a bright bunch, you know.
Do you have a better understanding of Chritianity now pagan. M guess is, no you don't.
"Sorry pagan, you still live in darkness. THe Bible tells us of eternal damnation, being witout God. Then there is the "firey Pit.""

Now prove your bible is not just a work of mythology.
