Apparently, conservatives have no problem with killing the unborn with mercury and dioxins and other chemicals in the atmosphere and drinking water. Not to mention causing birth defects. So they have no right to tell a woman what to do with her body and force a woman to be a parent. Women are a huge voting base for democrats/liberals and that is another reason for this blatant attempt at impeding women's freedom of choice. I haven't see the conservative parties promote invasive surgery on men who are rapists and pedophiles. Quiet the opposite, the conservatives just tried to change the definition of rape to force a woman/child to carry a rapists baby.

Early abortions are fine. Late, third-trimester abortions are illegal in most cases and rightly so.

The conservatives are solely responsible for mercury and chemicals in the atmosphere and drinking water? Well, thanks for clearing that up. HA! As for abortion, it should be the woman's choice. We cannot force morality and biblical principals on anyone. Not even God does that. It is each person's decision to believe or not believe. And government should never be able to force such things on its people. I have a real problem with "sin" tax as well. Really now. Sin? That is a strictly biblical word, to be used by a government who believes in separation of church and state. Who is deciding what is a sin in our oh so wholesome government?

If a woman has been raped, she should not have to carry the child.
If a woman had other children that depends on her and it is a medical necessity she should be able to chose what she wants.
I do not approve of women having them just because they made a mistake. Grow up and deal with your mistakes. Adoption goes on everyday. Too many loving people want to adopt because they are unable to conceive.

Just health related even if raped you should have baby and put it up for adoption to good home.

Telling a woman that she must carry the fetus of a man who raped her is about as draconian as you can get.

I agree with you. And what some of these people don't realize is when government is able to step in and take away these women's right to make a personal decision in their lives it could also lead to removal of other rights that may not be so agreeable to THEM. You can't give government that kind of power. And you can't force a religious ideal on others. Everyone has to decide for themselves how they will live. If someone wants to encourage someone considering an abortion to think about it,ok. But it is not for the government to decide.

I consider babies are a Blessing for God so if I was raped and got pregnant if I didn't want it I would put it up for adoption . Sorry I'm sure a lot don't think the same way I do but if you have Abortion for any reason but HEALTH reasons then I think abortions show nothing but selfishness.

Good for you, but not everyone believes in deities nor do they feel the way you do about rape or adoption, so don't try to force your decision on others.

I think you are a good person. And babies are a blessing from God. But a lot of people don't choose to believe in God. The government can't make them believe in God. Suppose they could and the only acceptable religion was one you didn't agree with, with a forced worship of a god you didn't believe existed? It is simply dangerous for the government to make personal decisions for its people because you never know what direction it could take. I do think you would be a great counselor in a life center. That could be your ministry.

Pro-choice. America is not a theocracy. Whatever your god wants is meaningless when making the laws.

I don't force anything on anyone I don't go to church I have my beliefs same as you, I said not everyone thinks the way I do. I know what joys my children, my families children, kids in general bring to my life me personally if I was raped I would still keep the baby I know that wouldn't be for everyone but I would give the child just as much love as I have given every other child that has been in my life.

A rape victim who decides to get an abortion is not "selfish" as you smugly put it.

No I consider it murder of a defenseless child. Here is my problem with abortion some us it as a form of birth control, rape is lil different but woman have had rape babies and kept them and some put them up for adoption and the birth of the baby did not affect them mentally, my big problem I have had a family member her and her husband has tried to have a child for over 8 years and can't and they are fantastic people with so much love to give then you got selfish women going and killing babies heck I would take a few more babies on myself I have anywhere from 3 to 8 kids here most the time anyways.m Just sad that woman don't value life of the innocent anymore. So those who belive in abortion can kiss my a$$.
