Try to remember that a baby feels PAIN after 20 weeks. If a female -(can not use the term mother since a mother is someone who loves a child) gets an abortion after 20 weeks then they also should feel the pain by having a pain inflicted such as a finger cut off so they know how the baby felt when they murdered it. It seems NO ONE CARES ABOUT THE CHILD. All schools teach sex education and they start at an early grade. So that comment is pure BS.
You can say my "comment is pure BS" all you want. I can say exactly the same thing about ANTI-CHOICE comments like yours. Beliefs AREN'T facts, no matter how much you may want them to be.

You think I've never seen an ultrasound before? I've been pregnant three times, CHOSE to carry all three to term, including the one that was unplanned.

It's not even a fetus at 6 weeks, but an embryo.

"Baby" is a term of endearment for just about everything under the sun. I call my youngest daughter "Baby", but she's 19, and not really an infant.

Call it what you want, but no one is obligated to debate according to your opinion. The only precise terms are embryo and fetus. Those are the ones I use, and will continue to use.

Those precise terms are indeed stages of human development.

I hope you don't find "human" too subjective a term.

Your point?. Sanger is not the topic. Not only that, she advaocated contraception, she was already dead before Roe vs Wade.

Sanger's family planning advocacy always focused on contraception, rather than abortion. It was not until the mid-1960s, after Sanger's death, that the reproductive rights movement expanded its scope to include abortion rights as well as contraception.

Again, your BELIEFS aren't convincing, not to me anyway. It is still the WOMAN's decision whether to continue a pregnancy or not. Your issues with a woman's choice NOT to continue a pregnancy are irrelevant.

Not YOUR pregnancy? Not your decision.

Murder is a legal term for an illegal act of killing. Killing that is legal is not murder. Abortion is legal. Since you cannot have legal illegal killing, abortion is not murder. No matter how much you want to pretend it is.

Again, it's your OPINION, not fact, and I don't buy the anti-choice OPINION that "abortion is murder." You're free to believe whatever you want.

What is REALLY pitiful is all these ANTI-CHOICE male politicians trying to force their backward beliefs on women by denying us access to certain forms of contraception as well as abortion. I guess many of these backward bozos still believe the archaic, 19th-century "woman's place is in the home" idiocy. Maybe they figure (incorrectly, of course) is if more women are denied access to both contraception and abortion, more women will be FORCED to accept pregnancy, whether they WANT it or not.

Women will definitely remember the Republican WAR ON WOMEN next year, when Republican governors need votes to keep their jobs. I know I'll be voting them OUT of office in MY state.
