Shoot Americans freaked over a tit for Goddess sweet sake..

Amazing we watch on tv a person blown it interchangeable parts.. Watch a dozen people gunned down.. But horrors of horrors if we see a medical procedure or even a parts the human anatomy. Or even have a a mature discussion on what happens during a medical procedure be that an abortion or appendectomy..

Yes surgery is gruesome./ Yes a person is lying there and allowing another to preform a surgical procedure..

Watching surgery of any type is only horrifying if we make it so.

A doctor practicing the compassionate art and science of medicine should be viewed in my opinion not as gruesome. So much as it should viewed with a sense awe at how one person can effectively change another life in a positive life affirming way.

Even if TV is too gutless to show abortions as it does with every other kind of violence, the public has Internet access to every grisly detail of these sacred sacrifices performed in the temples of the Church of Latter Day Pro-Aborts.

And the grisly abortions and the beautiful pictures of life in the womb are contributing to an ever-increasing pro-life majority.

There are no pro aborts you fool.. I am Prochoice asshole and I say let the cameras roll of every one there is in agreement..

It is a medical procedure.

That is all it is all.. All you fetus worshipping fool melodramatics bull shit.. Over the top emotional crapola is meaningless.. Roe v Wade has made sure that fools like you stay out of a woman right to make a choice.. And if that choice is for an abortion. That is her decision to make. Not some damn fool control freak with a religious/political agenda.

I love hearing profane, apoplectic bellowing of pro-abort gored oxen in the morning. It sounds like ... pro-life victory.

According to Big Abortion's leaders, it's definitely Apocalypse Now for the Church of Latter Day Pro-Aborts. http://www.youtube.com/watch...

The story is about an episode of Family Guy.
It has nothing to do with surgery. It's about
whether or not abortion should be a part of
a cartoon sitcom.

It is really about how this country is about abortion.. and how even today the networks and even cable are hesitant about the subject. Will family guy franchise make some money off of this.. You betcha..

However the real issue not whether family guy or any show makes money.

It is about how people will avoid talking viewing or knowing about a medical procedure called abortion..

What to you may seem a just a quirky show that you may or may not like making a little money from an episode that the networks were never going to show. Is in all honesty beside the point.

how we Americans can sit and watch some one torn in to piece in High Def and not blink.. yet when any one mentions any type of medical procedure suddenly it becomes taboo to show it??

Personally I like "Doctor G" but there are time when she is blurred out when excising something from a corpse.. i am saying show a face, But Gods above.. So she pulls a piece of an organ out.. Why even show her bent over a table when you do ot even see how she is working..

The cameras are there it was evidently ok to show that much.. Why not the rest.

Squeamish?? Please watch something else.. Some one with a chainsaw going through a body perhaps..

Until we as a people grow up ad realize that a medical procedure is just that.. Fools like the antichoicer are going to have a field day with innuendo and spreading their stupidity..

Abortion is an unpleasant reality. It's not funny.

Would you be willing to show animals being slaughtered or skinned
alive? They're just procedures, after all. How about the animals being
tortured in labs, unnecessarily? Should that be on Family Guy too?

Associate Assistant Pastorette Kathy of the Existential Church of Latter Day Pro-Aborts tells her dwindling congregation, "Everything is just peachy keen, little flock. Pay no attention to those flames consuming our church."

NARAL President Nancy Keenan tells the Democrat Platform Committee, ""Roe v. Wade is a shell of its former self. Since 1995, American politicians have passed more than 550 laws [ http://www.guttmacher.org/statecenter/spibs/s... ] limiting women’s reproductive freedom. In nearly 90 percent of counties across America, there is no access to abortion because there is no abortion provider."

Lemme see. Do we believe the Associate Assistant Pastorette or the High Priestess of Pro-Abortism?

A stupid troll that doesn't link copy right words and only provides a link that means nothing... Hmm I guess I am going to have say.. You are an idiot that wont accept the reality that you and fools like you do not get to interfere with a woman making one of the three legal choices available to her.. You Fail as usual.

Honey, "tom and jerry" already showed animals being tortured and skinned alive. And we laughed our asses off. It's a freaking cartoon, just like "family guy".

The human condition is funny, it's absurd. Pregnancy and abortion are parts of that condition.

What keenan notes is the insidious ways in which the self-righteous anti-choicers are eroding the rights of american women. It's not a surrender; it's a rallying cry to stand up and repeal these unamerican attacks on personal freedom.

Clearly, the resistance to anti-choice groups will need to be stepped up. I wonder how many of them could stand up to audits and city inspections? I wonder how well the PCC's would do with constant protesters hanging around their property like the clinic protesters? For that matter, how would RCC and other churches deal with it?

Honey, I'm very open when it comes to comedy. Standup comedy
is one thing, but seeing an image (even in cartoon form) on
a animated sitcom is something else. Maybe if Family Guy
were on very late at night, fine. Not in prime time.
Hell, they don't even allow swearing during prime time.

Oh, things are fine; we've just been spinning in different topix orbits, I guess.

Actually, I'm surprised south park hasn't done more with abortions already.

Medical procedures aren't obscene; they don't have a moral aspect unless you choose to put one on them.

Of course medical procedures aren't obscene.

However, morals and ethics come into play in this case.
