As Logical1 mentions in his forum post, outlawing abortion would lead people to resort to responsible sex. The agrument for abortion rights is not about being against responsible sex, it's about allowing a woman the RIGHT to do what she feels is best for her body and herself. We do not believe that there should be law that tells a woman that she is going to be forced to carry a life form in her body for nine months. That is not fair to anyone.

If abortion was outlawed (not a new idea), then "people" would resort to using illegal methods of getting abortions like they did back in the old days.

Either that or falling down stairs, swallowing poisonous substances, using coat hangers, etc.

Abortion was not invented by Roe v. Wade you know. :coffeepap:

Outlawing abortion does not deny woman the right to do what she feels is best for her........that is, before an innocent individual is created.


Once another life is created - especially someone who has had no say or given any choice in the matter - then, it's only fairness that we face up to the consequence(s) of our action/decision.

The priority will have to be for the welfare of the most vulnerable - in this case, the unborn.

Most recreational drug use is outlawed but people did not 'simply' resort to doing without them. Instead, a multi-billion dollar industry, run entirely by criminals and reaping huge tax free profits, emerged to fill the demand for supplying them.

The left is against all personal responsibility. They want to control people because they are freaks like that.

I completely understand your point of view regarding the creation of another life but abortion does in fact deny women the right to do what’s best for her. What’s wrong with a woman deciding she doesn’t want to choose to have a child? It’s not fair to dictate the bodies of all women of America. Everyone has different situations and everyone has different reasons for not wanting to keep a baby.

Wait, I'm confused. Do we want to avoid responsibility, or do we want to control people? Cuz controlling people sounds like a lot of responsibility....just sayin'. Are you getting your talking points crossed here? Careful, you'll short circuit the fragile brains of anyone dumb enough to be influenced by you.

:lol:

There we have the essence. Those that are for abortion like to justify it by ignoring that fact that, oh, they are killing an unborn child. Small detail there.

The unborn are as innocent as it gets, completely depended on the infinitely more responsible parent and others to keep it safe. So, the responsible party that willingly took action to create this human life in 99% of the cases, gets a pass and an okay to terminate a life because it's now a bit inconvenient for them. Something's wrong with this picture.

Personal responsibility means you care for yours and let others take care of theirs.

Where did you get that responsibility means you take care of everyones

Not me.

Life is not picture perfect.

The Constitution allows for the taking of human life with due process.

The 5th amendment allows for the taking of human life. I have no problem in stating the fact that an abortion is terminating a human pregnancy.

Because the left likes big government and wants their voters to be dependent on the government for all their needs. They don't want them to have jobs or money to buy their own food. They try to destroy the traditional family by providing and encouraging single mothers. Sorry if the truth is hurtful to you.

You need to start all your posts with "Once upon a time"... That way we'll know we're in for more fairy tales.

Name one time in the last 75 years the GOP worked for ...a smaller government?

I’d rather support single mothers than abusive fathers. Why did you pick the second one?

Let's see how your reality works. A ban on abortion is freedom. Pro choice is control. :roll:

Any woman who is pro-choice is not personally responsible. All women who are pregnant and pro-choice are by definition card carrying members of the monolithic "left".

And make someone else pay for the procedure whether they want to or not. Lets not forget that part.

The right to choose should happen BEFORE the woman indulges in sex.
We all know that sex can lead to the possibility of pregnancy - we have already come up with various
pregnancy-prevention methods - there is no longer any excuse for a woman to get pregnant, unless it's rape,
or if the woman is mentally challenged.

We all know the possible consequences of unprotected sex. Nowadays, it's sheer reckless negligence to
indulge in it, what with all the sexually transmitted disease all around us.


If women - yes, WOMEN - would wield their power to dictate how sex would be - then, women should make it imperative that the man wears a condom!
What? HIV or other new diseases doesn't scare you?

Unless it's rape, women hold the power, you know.
You can always say - either you do it my way, or take a hike buddy!

Unless the woman is a weakling, the sexual arena is one place women can dictate!
So, exercise that power! Women should put their money where their mouth is. Put it where it counts!

What percentage of your annual income are you willing to pay to raise unwanted children from birth to 21? Somebody is going to have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for each child that is not adopted. Where is that money going to come from? Would you restrict those children to basic needs or would you advocate that they have the same opportunities most children have?

Why are approximately 20% of American children living at the federal threshold level now? What are you doing about it?
