Thousands Protest Roe V. Wade Decision

"A 13-year-old and his 12-year-old girlfriend have reportedly become Britain's youngest parents. The Sun reports that the baby, who was born last weekend, was conceived last summer when the girl was still in primary school." http://www.huffing tonpost.com/2014/0 4/19/britains-youn gest-parents_n_517 3498.html Compare and contrast with this American 12 year old. "Devoe knows a thing or two about childhood and focus, for she is only 12 years old and just recently became a certified yoga instructor after completing 200 hours of teacher training. She is believed to be the youngest certified female yoga instructor in the United States." http://www.reuters .com/article/2014/ 04/04/us-youth-yog a-idUSBREA330P9201 40404 Choice is a wonderful thing. Regardless of what one chooses to do. Nobody's forced.  (May 1, 2014 | post #324448)

There are some weirdoes right here on this thread who were dancing with the news of Dr. Tiller's Death. Some, apparently, still are. Nut jobs indeed.  (Apr 30, 2014 | post #324330)

And Dr. Tiller is still dead :( Nobody will ever convince me Phil Kline's blatant actions didn't set off the first domino lined up between the PLM and the weirdo who shot Dr. Tiller in his own church.  (Apr 29, 2014 | post #324309)

Neither do pregnant women. That's why Roe v Wade set things up that individual pregnant women determine individual pregnancies without input from the gov't, the clergy, or nosy parkers like you.  (Apr 26, 2014 | post #324174)

This is most definitely about me and other women who have been or will become pregnant. Not sure about your gender, so not sure if it's about you at all. If you're female, it's most definitely about you, too. As for not being selfish, I've raised female children and have female grandchildren whose futures are worth considering so they're not denied their civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy. The PLM and its followers are clearly the selfish ones from my perspective. These are people who use blatant manipulation to pull heartstrings in order to affect emotion over strangers' pregnancies and what becomes of same. As if it was anybody's business. As for proof, please provide proof of your very own claim that 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[.]" Your plagiarized copy and paste leaves a lot to be desired. How about this proof? "Read enough of the "testimonies " on websites devoted to this mission, and you start to see a pattern: that no matter what other, very real stress may have been occurring in a woman's life -- an abusive partner, economic hardship, substance abuse -- any regret or pain she carries from that time can be explained by one single act, apart from and untouched by anything else. These narratives hold that abortion is the beginning, middle, and end of a woman's problem, and it's not hard to see why such a stunningly simplistic and intellectually lazy explanation has won support from anti-choice politicians and activists. After all, according to this line of thinking, all a woman must do to feel better is apologize and atone -- or, better yet, assume that the very specific circumstances of one individual's life can be extrapolated and writ large onto someone else's life, and try to keep other women from having their full range of reproductive choices." <snip> "As the UCSF study indicates, the majority of women that chose abortion did not regret their choice. Of course, that means that some did. Likewise, some women surveyed that were unable to access abortion care regretted not being able to have the procedure, and others that continued their pregnancies were relieved that they did. These findings remind me of the perspective of a pro-choice activist that I spoke with several years ago, who mused, "The emotionally honest approach is to acknowledge the ambivalence, to acknowledge all of the complex bouquet of feelings and emotions that comes out of this decision. That's the emotionally honest approach." But in this summer of 20-week abortion bans and TRAP laws, emotional honesty seems to be in short supply. As the Republican Party makes no secret of its desire to demonize a legal medical service in an effort to appeal to its increasingly disillusioned base, any reminders that abortion is a wanted service belie their claim to care about pregnant women. Indeed, studies like the one from UCSF would seem to be the GOP's worst nightmare: a reputable reminder that all the fear-mongering of the anti-choice movement isn't actually true." http://www.huffing tonpost.com/sarah- erdreich/post-abor tionsyndrome-the_b _3742606.html  (Apr 25, 2014 | post #324133)

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.  (Apr 25, 2014 | post #324122)

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." http://rhrealitych eck.org/article/20 12/01/25/what-is-s tate-abortion-righ ts-in-latin-americ a-and-caribbean/ You can choose to continue being brainwashed or you can choose to learn reality. Pick one.  (Apr 25, 2014 | post #324109)

You can lie to yourself and think "nobody cares!". Or you can learn some facts. There's nothing proving women are physically and emotionally scarred from terminating unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies. What is proven are the circumstances surrounding the decision to terminate unhealthy/unwanted pregnancy. And/or an unresolved psychological condition in that same time frame. As NAP has recently said, deal with those issues -- poverty, free birth control, free daycare, etc., and this country might actually see the annual number of induced abortion continue to go down. You do know the annual number of abortions has been steadily dropping several years now, right? Even before all those ridiculous unreasonable restrictions were put into place. Thank goodness some courts are finding those restriction unconstitutional.  (Apr 24, 2014 | post #324090)

And that's why you don't know that words have actual meanings. I see 7yr olds reading the dictionary. Guess they're smarter than you, huhn. At the end, forcing pregnant women to deny their civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy -- to accept/reject a medical condition or procedure -- is what's gross. Selfish. Disrespectful. Ludicrous. But you go on your ignorant merry way. Just don't get in mine.  (Apr 24, 2014 | post #324089)

Other people's children are not commodities for sale to the infertile. Forced adoption is no different than forced abortion. Civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy mean one person at a time makes a decision to accept or reject a medical condition or medical procedure. None of your fluffy words changes this. Until the newborn is outside the womb, he/she has no civil rights established. Just like the rest of us living in this country. Would you prefer to live in another country without civil rights? Where the gov't chooses for you? Forces you to abort or adopt out against your will? Didn't think so. So stop wanting it for other American women.  (Apr 24, 2014 | post #324088)
