I thought you all always recognized peer review studies as unbiased. Only in this case you don't.

The state, in supporting the law passed seven years ago, disagreed, submitting several studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals to demonstrate a "statistically significant correlation between abortion and suicide." Planned Parenthood relied on another study to argue its belief that certain underlying factors, such as mental health issues, predispose women to have both unwanted pregnancies and suicidal tendencies.

If you were honest, you would admit that your concern lies not with "women".

Your concern lies with women should and must produce according to your "personal" religious beliefs.

Agreed. However, I've never known religious fanatics to be honest about anything, so I don't expect honesty from any of them.

The catholic church, and all other churches that forbid all forms of contraception to be used, couldn't care less about women or children. As you said, they only care about forcing or guilting women into being mindless baby producers for that particular church. Gotta keep the religion going, after all. Fewer women producing children means less future members in 18 years and also LESS MONEY for the church to run its operations.

Horse fungi! You just can't accept that a federal appeals court made a decision not on abortion, but on what is their responsibility to their patients if there is a reason to believe an abortion could increase the risk of suicide for that patient as a result of the medical procedure.

I'll brt you don't have a problem with posting the life threatening possibilities with smoking on a cigarette package, or posting the health risk of eating junk food in a pizzaria, or posting the possible health rish associated with swimming in a contaminated river?

Your narrow vision is a result of narrow mindedness. Then again, you may just have your head screwed on, and up, too tight.

Snicker, snicker. Well put as apples to apples go. Or, sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Or, you just can't have it all your way ShameYaBotty.

Well done 246.
