Basically shouldn't be on the governments agenda to ask or to debate it. It is a moral question that differs in answer from one person to the next and influenced primarily by religion. If you think its the governments place to make abortion illegal then it is just as immoral for two men to rub their peters together. IMO

Killing babies is murder. Gov't has an evil agenda of depopulation and replacing the Americans (and westerners) with immigrants, as they do.

Stay safe Branson.

But it's not your body, nor that of another pregnant woman, that is being put to death during abortion. It's the body of an innocent, helpless baby resting peacefully in the supposed sanctity of its mother's womb.

It's shameful that our society will incarcerate anyone who fouls the nest of a bald eagle, yet we celebrate the slaughter of 1.5 million human babies every single year.

Why do we place more value on the egg of a scavenger bird than we do the life a precious human being?

When and where is this slaughter celebration every year?

Perhaps if humans were endangered rather than over populating they to would be protected. As it is we have more and more people having offspring they can not support and self righteous liberals encouraging it. If these same supporters would be forced to step up and adopt unwanted and addicted babies I think they would sing a different tune.

Now you tell me if you are willing to dedicate the rest of you life to caring for these unwanted and damaged children?

More of the same idiocy from the pro abortion crowd. It's really the same old argument of responsibility.

Why not hold the parents accountable for their actions? They chose to have sex and create a living human being. Along with their choice comes responsibility. Society should hold them accountable to be responsible for their choices, not push that responsibility onto someone else.

And murdering babies sure isn't the answer.

It's not an opinion, it's a matter of fact. An unborn baby is a separate, living human being. It is not part of the woman's body.

Whenever I hear the pro abortion argument that a woman should have the right to do with her body whatever she pleases, I know it's just b.s.

As I said, it's not the woman's body that is being put to death during an abortion. It's the body of an innocent, helpless little baby.

People who support abortion are sickos.

You see the problem with your ideal is that most that have unwanted or addicted babies are not and can not be responsible and the result is a child forced into misery and shunned by those who claim to support their right to life as well. Now that is the real sicko. Orally murders would step forward and take responsibility for their actions. This is not an ideal world.

I would prefer implanted contraception at puberty and parenting classes that must be passed in order to conceive over abortions ideally. However at this time that is not even a consideration. So we do the best we can with what we have to control the number of damaged lives. Not ideal but far better than an additional 1.5 million helpless lives born to starvation, abise and addiction.

Should read "abused" and "Orally" should read "ideally". Swype will be the death of u.

I'd prefer another solution than abortion. We do the best we can with the choices allowed as a people I'd like to think. I do not believe that any mother who has aborted did so with malicious intent.

You're spewing unfounded nonsense. "Most" that have unwanted babies are not and cannot be responsible? Bullshit. I'd say the vast majority of pregnancies in this country are unplanned, yet there are millions of parents who lovingly support and raise their children.

Your basically saying that murdering helpless, innocent little babies in the most gruesome manner imaginable is better than raising that child or putting him up for adoption?

And you wonder why I say you pro abortion people are sickos.

Really? No concern for a woman's choice to do with her body what she wants if it comes to forced implanted contraceptive devices, but we must not violate that sacred choice if she wants to murder her own baby. You're suffering from a severe case of cognitive dissonance.

The core argument of pro abortion is "reproductive rights", yet your plan would violate that by forcing a woman to undergo an invasive medical procedure and get a parental training certificate of completion from some governmental body in order to exercise her God-given right to bear children.

And what if a woman refuses your plan and becomes pregnant anyway? Will you force her to undergo an abortion? What about her choice to deliver her own child?
So we do the best we can with what we have to control the number of damaged lives.
You don't consider ripping the arms and legs off a helpless little baby and crushing its tiny skull to be damaging to its life? What, are you nuts?!?

And you wonder why I say you pro abortion people are sickos.

There is a huge difference between an unplanned pregnancy and an unwanted or addicted child. And I see nothing wrong with ensuring mothers are responsible and stable prior to conception. If a woman were to choose to have a child without the skills need to allow a future for her child she should forfeit her right to public assistance. You and I should not be forced to be financially responsible for another. As it is the system encourages irresponsible births for financial gain. Hell Texas has even sent letters to children coming of age letting them know the benefits they can receive. It's even documented that a 14yo has intentionally became pregnant for financial gain. What do you suppose she can offer her child if left to her own devices?

If we are forced to allow more and more unwanted and damaged children who is going to take them in and care for them? Who will be financially responsible? So long as others are not forced into responsibility for another I have no problem with your ideas. Maybe if we could get every single pro lifer to sign a contract accepting unwanted, abused and addicted as their responsibility we would have an acceptable solution. It's non invasive and allows those who support pro life to do just that without forcing that responsibility on pro choice people.

Of the over 20,000 rapes committed each year should each one that results in a pregnancy be forced to carry their assailants child? I think not. Just as I don't think another should be forced to accept anothers moral or religious beliefs.

So it’s ok with you to murder unwanted children, but not ok if they are merely unplanned? That’s irrational.
And I see nothing wrong with ensuring mothers are responsible and stable prior to conception.
What’s wrong with it is that it isn’t any of your damn business, nor that of the government. As I said before, the main thrust of the pro abortion argument is “reproductive rights”. You plan violates that in the most intrusive manner possible.
If a woman were to choose to have a child without the skills need to allow a future for her child she should forfeit her right to public assistance. You and I should not be forced to be financially responsible for another. As it is the system encourages irresponsible births for financial gain.
Let’s address the root cause of the problem – social welfare programs. If government didn’t force you and I to pay for freebies for other people, it wouldn’t matter to us what those people did. If they had to pay for their own children, they’d stop having them only for financial gain.
If we are forced to allow more and more unwanted and damaged children who is going to take them in and care for them? Who will be financially responsible? So long as others are not forced into responsibility for another I have no problem with your ideas.
So let’s get government out of the social welfare business, then those of us who have to pay for others will have more freedom, and those who receive government freebies will have more freedom too.
Maybe if we could get every single pro lifer to sign a contract accepting unwanted, abused and addicted as their responsibility we would have an acceptable solution.
Why is that acceptable? Why do you want to shift the burden of responsibility onto someone else? Again, that’s the root of the problem. Government shifts that burden onto people like you and me and look what a mess that has caused. It would be much better and more just to hold people accountable for their own choices, actions and behaviors.
Of the over 20,000 rapes committed each year should each one that results in a pregnancy be forced to carry their assailants child?
Of course. What sense is there in carrying out the death penalty on the innocent child instead of punishing the rapist?

No matter what this debate ends up saying, I will always be Pro-Choice. If tomorrow, I get mugged and raped, and pregnated by my attacker, you can bet your ass, this Mommy of two, will visit planned parenthood for an abortion. That's just how it is.

IMO an unplanned pregnancy is a child that is wanted and not aborted. Simply unplanned.
All I suggest is to ensure people are capable of raising their offspring prior to conception. If they choose to skirt the system they should not be allowed to rely on it to support them. And I do think people would have concern for others even if not forced into paying for others. It's human nature. However forcing someone to have a child they do not want should not be my responsibility but rather those who force it, namely pro lifers. The addicted, raped or unstable mother should not be forced. It's their choice that they must live with and not for me to choose for them. Execution of rapists is a fantastic idea with the only problem being many are never caught. Now here's another question; what should we do with the mentally handicapped that become pregnant while being completely unable to take care of themselves? Do you propose we force them to take responsibility for their mentally challeged offspring?

Why shouldn't we hold accountable the ones who chose to engage in sexual intercourse with the responsibity for the human life that is created as a result?
The addicted, raped or unstable mother should not be forced.
Pregnancies from rape are very rare, and no one has yet explained by the baby must suffer the death penalty while the rapist goes unpunished.

The other two examples you list come about as a result of choices. Those making the choice should be held responsible for the consequences.
Now here's another question; what should we do with the mentally handicapped that become pregnant while being completely unable to take care of themselves? Do you propose we force them to take responsibility for their mentally challeged offspring?
Why do you assume their offspring will be mentally challenged? And what rationale leads to the idea that murdering that offspring is a good idea?

Sheer idiocy.
