There are plenty of living abandoned children in this world who are subject to much worse than most animals in this country. If all those people who claim to be pro-life would lend a voice to that cause then maybe they wouldn't seem like such hypocrites.

Not to derail this thread but:

Is capital punishment murder? Keep that in mind, please.

I was going to respond to all the bullshit about dead babies, but then I realized I don't give enough of a shit about the people who believe it, so I'm going to go eat my lunch.

I agree about the abandoned children, I would have a house overrun with them if my husband felt the same way as I do. I don't see how there being abandoned/neglected children makes pro-life people hypocrites?

Capital punishment is murder. I used to believe in it, but now I don't, but probably for a different reason than you'd think. I think killing a murderer is too easy - Ted Bundy lead a pretty cushy life in prison until he was executed. I think they should actually be punished for the rest of their natural lives - do hard manual labor, etc.

Do you have any medical training ?

I'm not a doctor if that's what you're asking. I have worked in the medical field most of my life. I've garnered a heck of a lot of knowledge on the subject just by reading - and being pregnant five times.

Because most people are willing to argue about an unborn child being an innocent life before looking to the South, East or West. We should be far more concerned with life that's already living on this planet than those who haven't even been born yet.

Example: If you asked the average McCain supporter about whether or not we should send troops to Darfur they would likely say no or at the very least have no idea what is going on there. That is what makes them pro-life hypocrites.

You honestly believe that Obama supports abortion under those conditions?

I'm sure the same could be said about many pro-choice people as well. I think in general people tend to be pretty ignorant about a lot that is going on in the world; they get so caught up in their lives they don't pay attention to what else is going on.

All life is precious, born and unborn, and we should be taking care of all of them.

So why is there no overwhelming support for Darfur intervention from the Republican campaign? So far I believe that Obama is the one who has supported immediate aid to that country.

OK, so you're not a Doctor, thanks but when I go to get info about "advanced medical techniques" that's where I'd go.

The medical side of things was already posted by an actual Physician in this thread.

The "health of the mother" argument is so much more compelling when it comes from someone qualified.

Just because someone is an "actual physician" doesn't make them an expert in everything, that's his opinion. If you want to make a truely informed decision you'll research it yourself instead of listening to one "actual physician."

It's not my right to decide if a person lives or dies. That right belongs to no man (or woman).
