Pro-choice?

April 16, 2013

Pro-choice advocates maintain that a woman should have a choice when it comes to her reproduction and it’s her “right” to have someone else pay for it....

"I read your comment about this letter at the web site who moderate. You are a coward and I am done with this letter." - CMReeder

Let He Who Is Without Sin Cast The First Stone. That is all I need to say about that.

Of course it's about the money when someone is expected to pay for another persons lack of responsibility.

The complaint about the Federal and State/Local governments is about those UNFUNDED mandates.

I would like to point out something about 'the money' from the federal government that I have seen argued by those make that argument. They argue that the government has no right to tell a state how to use the money or a school or anyone they give money to. Unless of course it is something they want restricted then the government can have a say.

Since Texas successfully defunded Planned Parenthood in their state the cost to the state of Texas to care for patients covered under planned parenthood and other programs has grown rapidly and will continue to do so. So Texas will be paying more out of pocket than before.

See it is not about the money it is about abortion.

They have effectively closed clinic that preformed abortins by bombing them, killing providers, shaming and laws limitied access. The last stronghold for abortion is a program that still provides abortion along with other medical procedures aimed specifically to poor women and children. Because they get federal funds they accuse that they are using it for abortions only. It isn't the money, it is the abortions they object to.

The reason Planned Parenthood does more abortions is because states have closed most all the other clinics in their states. It isn't about the money it is about abortions the money is a strawman.

It is against the law to directly fund abortion, but money in a general fund cannot be segregated, making abortion indirectly funded with tax dollars. Accounting 101.

You know I would like to point out to the pro-lifers and the not my money crowd that Congress is prevented by law to fund abortions. However this does not stop the accussations that they do. It is not about money it is about abortion.

Good post spike! Of course the argument it isn't about their age it is about their money.

Just out of curiosity, how many here are at a viable reproductive age or for the men, with a spouse who is? If 90% are not, no one cares what you think.

We did, years ago, "mandated by the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 and launched by the FBI on November 30, 1998" --Wiki.

JerryfromRI Apr-17-13 8:53 PM****"@gavinf56 - You believe that the majority of Americans oppose a background check for gun purchases?"

No, I just believe the majority of Americans are smart enough to KNOW our country already utilizes a background check system and essentially all law abiding citizens already undergo a background check.

"And I do [believe abortion is murder]. But in the case of rape and incest I am willing to compromise."

The most popular president in history can't persuade his own party to vote for commonsense legislation supported by 90% of voters.

Kelaine-"Mike, I never really understood this viewpoint, and I know a lot of people have it. If you really believe that abortion is murder, then what does it matter how that baby got conceived or who the baby's father is? Why does the baby of a rapist rate lower than the baby of a consensual encounter? If I believed abortion was murder (from conception on), I would have to believe it was murder in all cases."

And I do. But in the case of rape and incest I am willing to compromise. As to the medical part of abortion, if the mothers life is in danger and she dies, the baby dies with her unless they're well along in their pregnancy. In THIS case, it is truly a medical decision, not a case where it is used as last resort birth control.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Those words don't mention imaginary lines or political boundaries.

Are not ALL men created equal? Are not ALL men endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights?

Every American regardless of ethnicity should be able to bear arms.

If you are talking about Israel and Palestine, I don't really care, it has nothing to do with OUR Constitutional right here.

Yea, I know who a large percentage were. My daughter got in a few debates with them that almost always ended with her telling them "well if you had gotten a degree that meant something in the real world."
