You think that strongly enough, that you're willing to foot the bill with your tax dollars?

Do you advocate an abortion and sterilization registry?

Should women who have an abortion to save our lives, forfeit the further right to have biological children?

Who gets to decide 'who gestates' and 'who doesn't' under your regime?

Destroying your body with sex? Sex is healthy regardless of which genders are involved as long as it's done safely. I've never had a wreck during sex; maybe you shouldn't f**k while driving.

Women decide how they will "preserve their bodies", not you buttinskis.

BTW--alcohol and drugs have been legal for the majority of our history as a nation--just like abortion.

You said PC is against restrictions that would make clinics safer, and I asked what restrictions are you talking about? Don't see an answer in your reply.
Because you are trying to make an argument based on morality, I'll ask whose morality? Are any circumstrances a woman would choose abortion okay with you? Any at all?
Goooooood grief, do you not know what Google is? If you really wanted an answer, you would have looked it up. I promise, I didn't "doctor" the whole entire www! You're wanting your answers from an anonymous person on this site, instead of looking it up yourself? Yes, sounds like you're really searching for the truth! Only when the "truth" is what you like?

Ok, you busted me, again. You guys are just too smart for me. I was dodging that very intellectual question, because it made so much sense.
Here goes>>>>If ever I am merrily skipping down a street, look up, see flames, discover that it's my apartment>>>here's what I would do (are you still not having an aw-ha moment as to how silly this scenario is?).
I would rush into the burning building, and I would save my child. The child whom I have mothered, and grew emotionally attached to for x amount of years. The child who also realizes they are in a burning building, and is filled with terror. The child who can feel pain, and knows that something is horribly wrong.
That is who I would save.
Now, once I'm out of the building, do I get arrested for illegally harboring a Petri fish full of frozen embryo's, or do I go straight to the psych ward?
You keep coming up with those ridick scenarios. They're really making people think >>winkwink<<<

There's no Sophie's Choice going on here. The answer would be fairly obvious.

However, here's one to consider.

You're walking down the street, you see a person trip, and fall. You notice that that person has a bag full of illegal drugs that just fell all over the side walk. Do you

A) Run to their aide, help them put their drugs back, and go on your merry way.
B) You run up to them with your arms covering your face, steal the drugs, and kick em when their down.
C) Follow them to see where they are going, and then call the cops.
D) Run home to make sure you left the stove burner off

I'd do B, but that's just me

Yeah, I get it....substitute 'Black" for 'fetus' in the post above, and you get 'racist bigot', in the place where the SCPL likes to put 'ageist bigot' these days.

Whatever works, right guys?

Anyhow, given that the primary focus on abortion comes from the political party which claims to be for

'smaller government',

I find it passing strange that the Republicans are interested in being the womb police for 51% of the population.........this does NOT sound like 'smaller government' to me.

I'm all for State's Rights - but I reserve the right to decide for myself whether I will gestate or not, EVEN WHEN PREGNANT,(since it's still MY body) and even if my State forbids me to access one of the choices.

My rights to bodily autonomy, personal risk assessment, and self-defense, ARE NOT UP FOR A VOTE.

Period.

....or, of course, you COULD emigrate back to Fasciszistan, where you have a higher comfort level.

That would be wrong, and I'm ashamed of you. You know full well if someone is carrying a bag of drugs out in the open, they're street trash and their junk is probably cut with drain opener and/or rat poison.

The correct answer is always D, because that could make your meth kit explode.

You've mistaken these unreasonable restrictions as "reasonable". Show me a dental or physician's office that must comply exactly the same way. Show me an outpatient ambulatory office (same day surgery) that must comply exactly the same way family planning clinics are being forced to comply. Then we can debate what is reasonable or not.
In the meantime, you can rest assured I agree with the restrictions as outlined in Roe v Wade using viability as an indication for restricting legal induced termination. But don't you forget the exception that pregnant woman's life is tantamount, even following viability. Fetus can be birthed, but may still only have a 50/50 chance at surviving. Nothing is guaranteed, especially healthy full term childbirth. The PLM and its followers seems to use wishful thinking into making it guaranteed. And it's not ever gonna happen.
As for your erroneous claim I used millions of words, you're lying. I wrote a couple paragraphs. Other than that, all the words belonged to the Merriam Dictionary and were C&Ped for your benefit. But you've already admitted to ignoring it. Says so much, you probably don't realize.
Now, here's what happens in countries where monitored, legal induced abortion becomes criminalized. Is this what you want for America?
"In places where abortion is illegal, women often turn to inadequately trained practitioners who employ unsafe techniques or attempt to self-induce abortion using dangerous methods. In Latin America and the Caribbean, nearly one million women are hospitalized each year because of complications from unsafe abortion, and the World Health Organization estimates that one in eight maternal deaths in the region result from unsafe abortion. Poor and rural women are disproportionately affected.
Fear of legal consequences, social stigma, high cost, and lack of access to trained health professionals are major barriers to obtaining safe abortions. Banning abortion does not reduce the numbers of women who attempt it; in fact, the abortion rate is much higher where it is illegal
Absurd. There is no way of determining that. The fact that they are illegal means there is no way of accurately documenting just how many are sought and/or performed. Anyone who says they know what the abortion rate is in any place where it is illegal to perform one, is lying.
Do some independent critical thinking before posting links and cut & pastes of such nonsense.
You're hopelessly naive.
You can choose to continue being brainwashed or you can choose to learn reality. Pick one.
So go ahead. Pick one.

Too late. The lying fake got bounced again.
Too bad too because I'm sure he was just about to explain how the pain of childbirth and the rigors of working for a living, make sex for procreation a non pleasurable chore.

First, explain how to legislate morality. Who's morality is legislated? When and for how long? Does Christian morality take turns with Judaism's? Every third year Muslim morals are legislated? When do those Satanic morals get legislated? And for how long? Do you have any concept of how many different religions, different morals are practiced by a secular nation? Who gets to choose the best one followed? The Dictator?
Second, show scientific medical proof that "Most women suffer emotionally and physically for the rest of their lives when they are forced by society into abortions in a moment of weakness[.]"
Otherwise, I'm left believing that you, personally, believe legally induced pregnancy terminations are wrong and would not choose one for yourself. Lucky for you, in the USA, nobody can legally force you to choose one against your will, thanks to Roe v Wade.
Thanks to Roe v Wade ? What are you talking about ? No one could be legally forced to choose to abort against their will, before or after Roe v Wade.
