Ink, no one of course and many times this thread goes in different directions. However, let's face it - religion while instrumental or even fundamental in the way many view abortion - is not really relevant.

It might be for you and others - but it's a dead end street. The Bible is filled with "killing" - brimming with death and destruction. Using God as an argument to oppose abortion doesn't strike me as particularly effective. He (God) doesn't seem to have issue with miscarriages. Seems He might even be on-board with those losses.

If you argue against abortion based on what you've read in the Bible - you might want to take another look.

The question was about consent to sex meaning consent to pregnancy. Why do you think you can change what I was replying to?
Yes it does, mean consent to pregnancy, Ladilulu. Everyone with even a modicum of intelligence knows that the risk to having sex is a pregnancy. You choose to have sex, you're choosing that risk as well.
"The question was about consent to sex meaning consent to pregnancy."

Was there a question? There is no question about it. If you agree to have sex, it is not an agreement to carry and have a child. You can blab about the risk all you want.

Try to keep up with us, you childish troll.

Tell that to a pretend pregnant man. Tell him his civil rights mean nothing because he got himself in this predicament and must be punished and take responsibility for his bad, bad behavior. Go on and tell him, after he's carefully considered all his options, that he must remain pregnant because the life growing within (even though it's the size of pomegranate seed when the majority of abortions take place) has more value, worth, and importance. That man would laugh and laugh and then offer you the door.
He has no civil rights if a pregnancy occurs. He is stuck with a kid he doesn't want from a mother he has no interest in for the next twenty years even though it seemed like fun at the time.

IOW, in this scenario, the MAN is pregnant and subject to outsiders' opinions. Please, try to keep up.

Bullshit. He has the same right to make a private decision about his pregnancy as a woman does. Your arrogant opinion that a pregnant person has no civil rights is ridiculous, unworkable, and unAmerican. You don't belong in this country if you really want to make laws based upon that premise.

Chicky's "babe" (somebody else's child Chicky loves and cares for) is one of these babies. Born without a functioning brain, the PL OB refused to tell mom the dire straits of her pregnancy. Her birth has wreaked havoc on the family, drained them of their finances, and all while insurance companies refuse certain treatments because "babe" is not seen as one who'd benefit from treatment. It's cruel to do this to parents and children, imo. Chicky has posted about it in this very thread, but I have no idea where it would be found. It does give insight to her stance on abortion. That and other anecdotes she's shared. I, personally, think Chicky's got a good grasp on this issue and has much to offer people if they would listen. jmo
Another thing those fools don't think about is quality of life. Is an infant born without a functioning brain going to have quality of life? No, not at all. We, society, wouldn't even force that on a dog.

I understood but I was pointing out the problems for men being irresponsible. They are no party either. At least one of the people involved should have enough smarts to use BC.

Reminds me of quote from the series "Torchwood":

Captain Jack Harkness: There you go. I can taste it. Oestrogen. Definitely oestrogen. You take the pill, flush it away, it enters the water cycle, feminises the fish. Goes all the way up into the sky, then falls all the way back down onto me. Contraceptives in the rain. Love this planet. Still, at least I won't get pregnant. Never doing that again.

Yep. Their OB conveniently neglected to tell the parents that this child would be what amounts to a living vegetable.

Be realistic, for once. You can't force people to use BC and you can't force a woman to stay pregnant. People have sex and some of them are irresponsible, some of the time. We cannot do a thing about that. If we could, it would have been done years and years ago. Sex happens. Period. You have no right to force a woman to carry a preganancy to term. Period.

Abortion is legal, so you shouldn't have a problem. For almost forty years now.

Are you saying that you nobody has an intention to try to impinge upon abortion rights, at all? If you can't answer that question with an honest "yes" than we most definitely do have a problem.

It didn't report that they weren't either Lynne, you idiot.
