Thank you BluRmGrl for expressing what I've always pondered about the pro-lifers.

If they only expended as much energy in looking after the unwanted children who have already been born, those in foster care, in orphanages, working soup kitchens to help the homeless, the addicted, the mentally ill, the dispossessed, as they ever did getting worked up over abortion.

This seems to be a running theme in FYM lately. Why is that? Are we getting lazy, or ignorant?

Four + years here in FYM....and I am shaking my head.

Why do the regulars sit by when stereotypes would not be tolorated of liberals.......and watch when people stereotype pro-lifers?

ANY pro-lifer that I know is committed to other causes including soup kitchen, sleeping with the homeless in shelters, have adopted children......They may not be supportive of governement programs that the liberal community supports.....but they are active. Just because it is not YOUR cause does not mean they are not actively helping in their own way.

And there are PROLIFERS in this forum who have engaged in ministries that help the poorest of the poor here in America and abraod..

Dread, I've never seen any progress made on the abortion issue in a forum such as this. Actions speak louder than words, I think you touched on that in your post.

As for your last sentence, I have no idea what your talking about what that has to do with anything

I'm leaving this topic for good now,catch you guys around in other threads,i've pretty much exhausted my reasons/my take on being Pro-Choice!

Thought i would leave some ACTUAL facts, as the general consensus among Pro-life advocates, is the horrible thought of killing an unborn child around full-term pregnancy.

- 52% of all abortions occur before the 9th week of pregnancy, 25% happen between the 9th & 10th week, 12% happen between the 11th and 12th week, 6% happen between the 13th & 15th week, 4% happen between the 16th & 20th week, and 1% of all abortions happen after the 20th week of pregnancy.

- The following birth control methods are in fact Abortificient,so if you happen to be Pro-Life,you might want to cease the following birth control methods as they do result in the termination of a pregnancy.

The Pill - prevents ovulation,thickens the cervix so the sperm cannot reach the uterus or fallopian tubes,also alters the wall lining of the uterus,making it not such a habitual place for the embryo to "live"

Implanon/Norplant - this is an implant that is placed under the skin of the arm for a period of 3-5 years. The hormone released prevents the implantation of the embryo.

Depo-Provera - is an injection administerd every 3 months.Also to prevent the woman from ovulating and preventing implantation of the embryo.

The morning after pill (plan B) - is ahigh concentrated form of the birth control pill, it is usally taken within 72 hours from intercourse to prevent the implantation of the embryo.

RU-486(mifepristone) - 2 days after having RU-486,a drug is given to induce labour.This process is usually done before 7 weeks.

As for the "silent scream" film,that is a very dated production,well over 15 years ago,and practices such as "hacking" at fetuses is not performed.

- Abortions are either performed surgically(procedure) or medically(drugs) under very strict,hygienic, controlled enviroments with lots of focus on the mother,with counselling services available,to make sure the decision is not a hurried one.

- More than 40% of women will end a pregnancy by abortion at some time in their reproductive life.

It was a joke, hense the wink. If you have no interest in women's bodies you wouldn't sleep with them therefore wouldn't have to worry about getting them pregnant...

Yup, I think I did.

As for the rest of your post, I am assuming this is a joke also?

I have zero idea what the hell your talking about. You make zero sense to me either, so lets just leave it at that.
