 And multi, why is it always a woman?  Takes two to tango. I figure it is a 50/50 split. 

Again I'm lacking evidence here, just a hunch, but I suspect the majority of abortions don't take place with a responsible male holding the female's hand helping her through the decision they made together.  Ill take a guess that the parents of the soon to be mother's have a lot more to do with these types of decisions than the father of the unborn.

 The unborn baby with a heartbeat should have the right to live!!

havingfun Said:
If you believe that the unborn baby is not real and living, then I can understand the thinking of "our own bodies". The fact of the matter is that the baby is real and living. Please think about that.

I like to look at this in a whole other direction. A lot of us on here think or say that we are all about our freedoms. Especially when it comes to our guns. No one wants their "freedom" or right to bear arms to go away.

Where is the line? You want freedom or not? Your either free or your not! Think about it...

 Multi. I am 34 years-old. I didn't go to church. I will let it slide on birth control and religion. 

I have no kids. Was I lucky?  I guess people will say so but the stats are overwhelming that it takes some pretty bad luck to get it by properly practiced goalies. 

Let what slide, I didn't make it up, I'm married catholic, I sat through the classes, my wife and I are going to hell for using birth control.

As far as stats go, a roll in the hay once a day for a year or two starts to widdle away at that 99% effective, and i don't know about you, but condoms break...often.  am I saying abortion is the answer, no, just that its not as simple as telling people these 2 or 3 "solutions" will prevent unplanned pregnancy.

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said: "Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even one year old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together."

The doctor said: "Ok, and what do you want me to do?"

She said: "I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this."

The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady:

"I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you, too." She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: "You see, in order for you not to have to take care of two babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the second one is born. If we're going to kill one of them anyway, it really doesn't matter which one it is, does it? There would be no risk for your body if you chose to kill the one in your arms."

The woman was horrified and said: "No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!"

"I agree", the doctor replied. "But you seemed to be ok with it, so I thought maybe that might be the best solution."

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb. The crime is the same!

What's that saying?  "It's interesting that everyone in favor of abortion has already been born"!

Life begins at conception.  The taking of a human life is murder.  Murder is illegal.   

If you think life begins at some point after this, you need to get educated. 

If you think that abortion is fine because it prevents overpopulation then consider this:  In 2012 the death rate in the US hit 2,500,000 people.  The highest annual number of abortions recorded since 1973 was almost 1,600,000, and in the last several years has been around 1.2 million, roughly only half of the deaths recorded in the US.

Morning after pills prevent ovulation so that you do not get pregnant. they do not kill fertilized eggs. Therefore they prevent conception of sperm and egg. Many people get that wrong by thinking the pill is the same as abortion.

If a woman is that desparate to get an abortion I wouldnt give a rats if they did it unsafe. Most have so many more options and abortion should be the last one and not an equal option. If they are so deparate to be an illegal abortion then they get what they deserve for being a murderer.

I agree with this 100%. Just didn't take the time to write it.

 I'm a realist when it comes to abortion. Women will have them whether it is legal or not.  I'd rather have a safe option be available then for them to go to then some back alley clinic.

I suggest you take that back! I have had a few encounters with Planned Parenthood supporters so I have heard every argument and I have my facts.

The catholic church is already doing a good job of that on their missions to tell these people condoms are a sin and god will protect them from aids and famine if they refuse the doctors condoms and accept Christ instead of the local traditional god of the indigenous people.  Sometimes a local genocide happens to the converted after the good Christian folks have gone.

From what I can tell, it is uncertain if the morning after pill has a negative affect on a fertilized egg. If it does, it is just another form of abortion and is murder. If it simply prevents fertilization than it is a contraceptive and is OK in my book.

Ok,  all you abortions "pro choice" folks.   Due to advances in technology we can or soon will be able to tell certain things about the "baby" or "fetus" very soon.   Things like sex,  birth defects, and maybe even sexual orientation or political preference.   Would you be ok with a liberal baby being aborted by conservative parents or anything else?

 Imagine the numbers on federal assistance programs had it not been for abortion.

1990-2007 ABORTIONS:

Black women per 1000 avg: 58.6/year

White women per 1000 avg: 15.4/year

That's racist?

2:  It always cracks me up.  So what you are telling me is the man has no right to this child?  The woman gets to make the decision to kill his child all on her own?

You won't go to hell.  You can confess your sins.  God forgives.  I think the argument of birth control as a religious item doesn't hold.  When you practice no sex you end up recycling eggs and sperm.  So technically, by practicing no sex you are indeed doing the same as birth control.

Where my religioius beliefs kick in fully is I believe life begins at conception.  And that should be cherished by the individuals and blessed by God.

As for the 99%.  Oh boy oh boy, if it wasn't near that we'd have all sorts of babies being popped and the abortion numbers posted would be twice this many.

I'll set aside the political joke even though I chuckled.

But this is another one of those things I have a tough time with.  While I believe in God I also have to inject realism into my life.  In today's world, it is very difficult to have more than two kids and have the "normal" upper middle class life.  Sure, you can do it, but you will be a 100% devoted person financially with little room for things to go wrong in your life.  All while probably not enjoying it how we would like.

That said, I have taken steps to prepare myself for one or two kids.  Plus, I'm getting to that age we need to decide and we need to decide soon.  Anyway, point is, lets say the time is now for us to know defects, etc.  What would I do if I knew the baby we concieved was going to have a very difficult life and it would be severe life changing to us?  That isn't as easy of a thing to answer.  Technically, I should be saying no abortion.  But a little bit of me things it might be okay.

In the end, things like this probably come down to are you willing to take what God gives you and make the best of it.  If not, you probably should just not have children as anything can happen.

But see what I mean, it is one of those thinkers.  I'm just being open and honest on this.

What would I do?  Thankfully, we don't have that ability yet.  I would be scared of making that decision.  I may just end up not having kids.

It is the number one thing I am scared of.  I think about it a lot lately because I'm getting that age I need to start making decisions.

This is another one of those that beats in the back of my head.

I just think, what if it happened to someone I knew?  Lets say my wife.  It would be a difficult 9 months and then you'd find out this baby could kill my wife during birth or before.  I'd have a long mean talk with God about that.

But point is, I know what you are saying murdock but dangit, it is not as cut and dry as someone that gets hammered and decides to take a roll in the hay.  Or some other severely unplanned pregnancy.  Those people made decisions they could stop.

Fine and dandy.   Even if you support abortion in cases of rape and serious health concerns for the mother you have to admit the vast majority of abortions are different circumstances.

Some day long long from now most people will shake there heads that humans were so religious for so long.

Or wish they had been more religious!   Or shake their heads we were such a nonbeliving society.

I wonder how many people on their death bed regret being TOO "religious" versus more "religious".
