But you said you were "pro-life" except in certain circumstances. That makes you the one making decisions.

If a woman was stupid enough to get pregnant even though she wasn't planning on to, thats too bad, she shouldn't be able to decide whether another human being gets to live or die.

Now in cases of rape, or when a woman has no control over her having sex, and she gets pregnant, then she should take the pill the next day. If not, then she should have the abortion within enough time that fetus does not feel the horrible pain. I'm not certain of how much time this is, but it's in less then 2 weeks.

Ack, this stuff is so confusing....*runs and hides*
Nope, that's not what I said.

I said that I would be pro death penalty if i knew innocent people would not be executed, and because:

1)Justice: It punishes the person who did the crime

2)Prevention: Ensures that the person will never murder again. This would be my main reason for supporting it.

Ah look, another one who is sitting in the chair of god.

Who should decide then ? the government ? ( who have the power to put their christian morality into law, and push it through the troath of non-christians. )

If people are so against ending a unborn life, provide a enviorment where the woman can keep a child and have a chance to live without poverty and missery.

Maybe some of you want to punish the woman for being a bad girl by forcing to keep the baby

It does seem that way by what a lot of people are saying.

"YOU IRRESPONSIBLE BITCH......YOUR PUNISHMENT IS YOU HAVE TO HAVE A BABY....YEEHAW...(shoots guns in the air like that guy in the Simpsons)"

No, I am only one person expressing a view. Laws are put in place by democratic governments, which presumably (or hopefully) reflect to a large extent the will of the majority.

Also there are many women who are "anti-choice" so let's not try and turn it into a "oh, those nasty men who want to oppress women" kind of argument.

Ok, this thread is turning into a debate about abortion. I'm just going to quietly shuffle out now.

No, i'm not saying the woman has to have the baby as a punishment. Hey if she can't raise it then give it for adoption. But don't kill it, it wasn't the baby's fault it was conceived.

I mean there are no winners in these cases. But what is worse, killing the baby or giving it up for adoption?

I did not say that I hate women. But hey the woman, not the man, gets to decide whether to abort the baby or not. So therefore i'm targeting the women. You can't have your cake and eat it. So anyway I am trying to say that it is not fair for the woman to decide whether the baby lives or dies just because she was irresponsible.

Ok. I'll try to tackle this one "point" by "point."

1. Stupidity does not cause pregnancy. Sex does. Birth control fails. That has nothing to do with stupidity. The thought that only stupid women have unintended pregnancies says so much about this poster.

2. She shouldn't be able to decide if another human being gets to live or die, but this poster somehow does? Pregnancy can be dangerous for women. This poster has decided that he's the one who decides if the pregnant, "stupid" woman must endanger her health.

3. This poster is generous enough to allow abortion in cases of rape, but only for the first two weeks. How many cases of rape do you know about that are solved in two weeks? How do you make the woman prove rape if the rapist isn't caught, tried, and convicted in those two weeks? What happens if the rapist is found innocent? The woman gas the child because she's stupid?

4. So you support the availablity of the pill, but only when you've decided that the woman should be allowed to have it?


Nice.

1. Yes.

2. You have no right to force a woman to carry a pregnancy to term for any reason.

Nice.
Okay, how about this, abortions should only be allowed up to 1 week after conception, or however long it is for the baby to start feeling pain, maybe its 2 weeks, I don't know the exact amount of time.
