I have my own feelings about this, and I cannot condone someone else killing their baby, sorry. I'm alive today because my Dad pulled my mom out of an abortion clinic when I was minutes away from becoming a 'choice.' He told her he loved her and wanted to take care of her and the baby. This means a lot to me, so don't push it. You are anti-choice because you refuse to accept my right to choose not to discuss this any further

Nobody has a gun to your head forcing you to talk, likewise nobody is forcing women to have abortions.

It's as if freedom stops when it offends you.

Personal stories are the key to this whole issue. Thier are other personal stories out there. They may not make you happy.

Your refusal to justify imposing your beliefs on other women, and then hiding behind a word, doesn't make you credible. You do have a "right" not to discuss it, but I also have an actual right make reproductive decisions without your interference.

I'll drop it, but understand that your simplistic beliefs about this may end up getting an adult woman you love killed. Your willingness to impose your beliefs on someone else's body may result in someone bleeding to death.

Basically, there is no reason to ban abortion, other then a religious reason or a 'i don't like it'. So therefore, there is no reason to ban it. There are lots of things we don't like but have to put up with. And as ive said before, we live in a society where sex is for pleasure, not just for procreation and therefore, we HAVE to have actions in place for things that happen. Abortion is one of them.

And your point?


This is why Planned Parenthood exists--to make sure the demand for abortions is low. Prevention is the key, yet where in all the anti-choice shouting and placard-carrying do we see support for contraception?

Except we don't want to teach kids about that in schools because that'll turn them into promiscuous little sluts. And we don't want to provide free condoms because that promotes sex. And we don't want to fund third world sexual education programs where people have NO chance of affording contraception, because that offends the religious right and their perceived morality.

^ exactly!

We can't talk about sex because heaven forbid, everyone will go sexing around everywhere, because you know, right now we live in such a clean non sexless before we're married already.

The reason so many people are having sex, is because it is treated as taboo. 'Oooooooh you're being naughty having sex' so lets do it and rock the system type thinking.
Its like alcohol, we place such high value on it (not a drop till your 21!!) and then shrug our shoulders when you pass by 15,16,17 year olds plastered every weekend. If we stopped placing such high taboos and scaredy tactics on everything perhaps they wouldn't be seen as something to rebel against during teenage years so much.

Do you mean to say nobody old enough for sex knows where babies come from?

Well that's the thing. The folks who are most "up-in-arms" about abortion are incredibly hypocritical in that they're so focused on banning it legally that they can't see how improved sex education and an emphasis on promoting safe sex would decrease the amount of abortions. Sometimes I honestly think the fundie types who are most outspoken against abortion don't so much care about saving the lives of unborn children as they do about excercising control over others' bodies/lifestyles. It's a shame really. My thought on it is, if you want to decrease the number of abortions you're better off doing your best to prevent unwanted pregnancies rather than forcing women underground; if they're desperate, they'll find a way to abort, and that way is likely to be very dangerous.

I'm curious what people think should be done to "encourage" fathers to take responsibility for their children?

Thank you for sharing that bscotch.
Your dad did the right thing.

I, as I'm sure others understand your perspective better, regardless of the post counts in support of your views.

We try to teach it, but your pals in the anti-choice movement are scared shitless of proper sex ed. They don't adequately teach their own kids, and they don't want anyone else's kids taught the proper things either. You and the rest of you can't have it both ways; you either need to support full access to contraception or you need to shut up about making abortion illegal.

But that's not something you want to discuss is it? Are you going to invoke your "choice" to not talk about it, yet still post in this thread?
