Where is the defense of the AL abortion vote?  Where are the expressions of "pride" in what AL has done?  Where are the Condemnations of girls who get pregnant by allowing themselves to be raped?  Where is the defense of incest that results in a pregnancy?  I know the likes of MM and Lifer and Wix are overjoyed, but what say Hound and Mr. H?

he would know just as with the GA bill that the intent is to get the supreme court to take a new look at Roe V Wade at which point it may be overturned and returned to a states right and the fed can quit sending planned parent hood tax dollars.

You claim to have me on ignore but respond to a post I made in your last ridiculous thread. I simply pointed out the purpose of the alabama bill not the contents or merit. I love you include me in the right wing label because it shows what an idiot you are, especially when you call me a Bible thumper. I have rarely ever discussed my views on abortion. Not with family, friends or most especially here. No amount of discussion or debate will change anyone's mind so to me it is equivalent to trying to teach a pig to sing. I will never engage in debate on the merits of either stand, I have better ways to waste my time,like making this post proving you are a liar. Of course you are also an idiot, ignorant and kool-aid drinker extraordinaire. Try thinking for yourself dumb@ss.

I am horrified by the new law.  Just taken a huge step backwards.  There is a march for Reproductive Rights coming up in Montgomery adn I am considering marching.  My feeling has always been that if you don't agree with abortion then don't have one.  I don't think government has any place in an individuals reproductive decisions.  And I think this "heartbeat" argument is a smoke screen to impose anti-abortionist beliefs onto all of us.  Banning abortion will not stop abortion - it will merely drive desperate women to another state or back into unsafe abortions.  I know a lot of people (men) will strongly disagree with me and that is okay.  I may be somewhat comservative, but I am a woman first.

I personaly don't believe in abortion but do not feel I have the right nor do I want it to make that decisipn for a women. The Federal government shouldn NEVER have sanctioned it. The decision is for the woman whether I agree or not. My problem is I feel using my tax dollars to support abortion is making me complicit which I am totally against. I applaud Alabama's attempt to bring us back to constitutioal law.

You are making excuses.  If anything, the anti abortion crowd is trying to use your tax dollars to advance their cause...not sure about the AL law, but the one in GA ''declares'' a fetus to be a ''person'' and even grants the same state tax exemption for a fetus as it does for a 6 year old.  When a 2 month old pregnant woman pays less you and I pay more.  I understand pro-choice pregnant women are getting written affirmations of pregnancy form their doctors which they will present to the officer who pulls them over for using the HOV lanes!

Some of us are old enough to remember the time of coat-hangers, Coke douches, and “Oh… she went off to live with her aunt in Charlotte.”  We remember when 16 year old children made life altering mistakes in the back seat of a ’56 Chevy at the drive-in movie. Those were the times which tested parenthood and faith.

Now… parenthood is glaringly absent… even adults make stupid mistakes… and paranoia can be handled over the counter on the day after.  Also, the average weight of an American woman is 168.5 lbs [CDC] and discovery is often realized AFTER the fetus’ heartbeat is established. BUT… the “government” now endorses and the taxpayer funds “corrective action” in the name of a “woman’s control over her own body.”  It’s the government sanctioned, backup plan for “friends with benefits.”

When my heart stops, I will be declared dead.  I reserve the right to make that assumption for every other living organism which uses a muscle pump to circulate fluids to afford metabolism... including babies in the womb.

I don’t believe for a second that my God has a problem with defining the difference between the quick and the dead.

If I say that you are a murderer because you have, facilitate, or perform an abortion… then you may certainly take issue with ME.  I will interpret your opposition to my opinion to be your own hedonistic view. It is up to God to judge you for your actions.

However, if you have, facilitate, or perform an abortion… then, I should not have to abet your deed(s) by contributing to the funding of it (them).  You violate my First Amendment rights in requiring me to do so.  Our forefathers could not have foreseen this dilemma.

God is watching us!

Looking at two sides of the abortion issue, I have two thoughts....

1.  Abortion is killing...call it what you will...do "WOMEN" have the right to kill at their choosing??

                                                          OR

2.  Look at abortion as trimming the dimokrap herd by a few million since the 70s.  Part of me says that may justify abortion, since most abort-ers are definitely dimokraps.  Rogers (GGGOOOODDDDD Dimokrap) said it best for his ilk....."Kill 'em now, or kill 'em later!!!

Because I think it is a private matter, I don't think tax dollars should be used to fund it, or promote it or not.  I think insurace companies have to decide for themselves and their stock holders, whether they will pay or not.  Same for companies.  I just want to make sure that it remains permissiable under law.  

But just to pay the devil's advocate - those of you who don't want your tax dollars used - Since you don't get a say in how your tax dollars are used for anything else (in reality), what makes this different.  And what about if you don't believe in abortion how can you support capital punishmet by the government  which is also murder?

"And what about if you don't believe in abortion how can you support capital punishmet by the government  which is also murder? "

 

I really hope you used just a poor example and that you do not believe what you typed - I have no problem with killing someone who is guilty of capital crimes.  In the case of consentual sex that causes conception, can you point out the capital crime of the parents or unborn? 

From your qustion above and your statements regarding abortion which you agree with  then you do not agree with exectutions regardless of crime or guilt, but are willing to execute the unborn?  

rape is not consentual - so whatever the mother decides.

incest can be bad genetically for the kid again up to the mother.

 

Abortion should not be the go to for birth control because of stupid decisions and lack of planning.    

 

I am going to write it slightly different and let me know what you think.

 

Someone goes and shoots 10 kids in a school - He should be punshed.

Somone from Planned ParentHood aborts 10 unborn kids in a day...  He should not be punished.

 

I do not have a problem with abortion,  I am concerned that it has become the go to birth control for some.

yes - - 

The Supreme Court should   

1 - Throw out Roe v Wade and

2 - declare that the Tenth Amendment throws the issue to the individual states or the people... e.g. get the federal government out of the abortion issue.  

Pleas read again:

Article the twelfth [Amendment X] - The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The Constitution does not delegate the power to regulate abortion to the United States. Therefore...

* * * * *

If the question is thrown to the people in the form of a referendum, either the "pro-choice" or the "right-to-life" citizens are going to be losers.  Civilized society will be the loser in all cases.

In my opinion, the best case is a permitting of abortion only in cases of rape, incest, or the physical health of the mother.  And, such NOT being at the expense of the taxpayer.  In NO CASE shall the federal goevernment be involved.

If we keep allowing this argument, we will soon be arguing over extremely late term abortion... the killing of old people... because they are a drag on society and the economy... and the mental health of their children.

If a woman doesn't want or can't afford a child how about not getting pregnant in the first place. Walmart sells birth control for about 4 bucks a month. If you can't afford that you shouldn't be streaming your legs. If you are to immature to take care of birth control you are to immature to be having sex. Black women are 7% of the population but account for 40% of abortions. That's a cultural issue that must be addressed. In any legitimate discussion on the issue of abortion.

Hound I agree with the others, you chose a poor analogy in this case. Exciting criminals convicted of capital crimes is not equivalent to killing innocent babies. But once again I say debating/discussing/fighting about it will never change a mind, but apperently seeing a sonogram of fetuses seems do it it in a lot of cases.

You have been quite clear in the past where you stand on abortion. I always respected your view and the reason behind it.

"I choose to not get into details, but where this is coming from is that there are instances where a caring God would say "it is ok to not submit this being to a life of pain and suffering, with no hope of it ever being better before death.  I strongly oppose abortion for convenience, but believe there are times that God might agree that it is an acceptable course of action."

Yes, you don't want to pay for birth control and you don't want insurance companies to pay for birth control.  Yet women get pregnant even with birth control.

It will be intersting to see how they rule now.  I could accept no abortions after 12 weeks, but the idea that a woman would be made to carry to term in cases of incest and rape or if there is a severe deveopmental issue with the fetus.

Have paid for birth control most of my life between condoms and pills,if not health clinics and schools pass them out like candy at halloween.  Insurance compaines can cover it or not - I prefer they do.  Never said it was not 100% and never said I was for adoption vs abortion.

 

I love that you put in "personal responsibility"  How about the responisibility to do what they can to keep from getting pregnant by using the condoms, foams, IUDs, pills, woops I screwed up pills, or even keep your legs closed vs woops lets break out the womb vac and vice grips.  While no form of birth control is 100% I would much rather someone abort the 1% because of product defects then the thousands annually across alabama due to the lack of personal responsibility.

 

As you say a life is a life - then I guess you are ok with abortion, executions and murder in general.
