miller, I'm not talking about any procedure, I am talking about the right of CHOICE. Having the right to choose does not mean a woman will have an abortion, it only means they have the right to control their own body.

And before you go into the not having sex if you don't want children, do you know of many--or any--married couples who choose not to have children and so never have sex?

It all comes down to, if you are so opposed to abortion, don't have one, but you don't have the right to make that choice for any other woman. And if you think you do have the right to control other women's bodies and lives, then I'll be coming by to tell you how to raise you children, spend your money, what food to put into your body, what medical procedures you may or may not have, etc etc

Link,

The change of language doesn't change the procedure, just makes the individual feel less guilty.

The issue is not "pro abortion" it is pro CHOICE, and should be every woman's right.

Yoxtheimer asked:

I'm sure the kids who are the product of rape or incest may be anti abortion too however should women be forced to carry out such a pregnancy?

Let's focus on the 99.9% of abortions rather than your infantile exception.

The choice is on the consequence not on having sex. -Reeder

That's totally absurd. That's DEFINITELY NOT the lesson I taught my kids!

"The choice is on the consequence not on having sex."

Chuck, So by your rationale, we literally throw the baby out with the bath water, because why???

Oh, that's right, the "choice" to have sex resulted in an unintended consequence and the former trumps the latter. Great logic there, Chuck. Cruel, but who cares, right?

" A Woman should have the right to get rid of a child....."

So, you admit it is a child?

Isn't there a law against killing a child?

Yeah...gotta love those one liners...

Don't twist the statement. Talk about a spin?

Wonder how many now regret that they did not do it? A Woman should have the right to get rid of a child no matter how old that child is! Lack of abortion made all of the excess Baby boomers!

Alsever,

Wonder what your mom was thinking?

Yeah maybe we should go out and abort all those people born from mid 40's to late 50's. Besides that they are getting old anyway so they are now just a burden on society. Shades of Soluent Green. (an old movie)

That attitude and statement is why many people ARE against abortion.

The choice is to have sex, not how to handle the consequences.

It is too simplistic, but let's talk about the real choices, which come much before the choice to take a life.

Hey...I'M convinced!!!!!!

Who'd have expected a "conservative" to fall-back on such a "well-thought-out"/science-based argument??!!!

While I would hope - read I did not say NEVER - consider asking my wife to have an abortion, I fully respect the rights of women to make that choice for themselves.

As it is stated it should be noted women who do believe in choice also have children. The letter is a false equivalency. -Reeder

Yea, I guess it's like saying I already have two dogs and I don't need another stray.

Women who support abortion don't neccesarily WANT an abortion. They support the CHOICE.Funny, the same people who support thier choice on abortion are ok with giving up thier choice to purchase or NOT purchase health insurance.

Shouldn't that read 'For those who are for abortions they had mothers who did not have one.'

As it is stated it should be noted women who do believe in choice also have children. The letter is a false equivalency.
