Because freedom can't protect itself
Though shalt not kill.
where does it say except?
WTF??...who gives a man the F*cling right to tell women what we can and can not do?....Better take a long look in the mirrors as*holes, women are stronger then men, can a man bleed for 7 days and still live, can a man give birth human beings, Women are Superior to men in those two ways. Well here is my answer to you backwoods Asinine jerks thinking women are incapable of making our own decisions...GO TO HELL!!!!
we need to look at these laws in all states. abortion is murder. period. if a man and a woman have sex together and the woman becomes pregnant. there was a time where both the man and the woman were held responsible to raise that child together. as for contraception, sex is meant for a man and a woman who are married. so there is no need for contraception at all. if we go back to these standards maybe people will start thinking more about the implications of intercourse.
Sparrow, please explain how contraception magically becomes unnecessary when you get married. Please also explain how you expect that couple to raise a child that they can ill-afford or how you can conscionably expect a woman to be forced to carry to term a child who is the product of rape, or that is expected to die shortly after birth.
Bonus points if you can do it without referring to the Bible.
Person above must be a troll. "Have sex together"? Are you going to be having sex apart from each other?
Sparrow - this country ill needs a theocracy. That goes double for you, Anonymous #1 (Note that the proper translation is "murder", not "kill". There were plenty of "kill this person" passages in the Bible.)
As for "abortion is murder", hoo boy. Abortion is the artificial end of a biological process that is *naturally* ended in more cases than you are aware. It's thinking like yours that leads to laws that would start criminal investigations on any woman who dares to have a miscarriage. But then again, you said it perfectly - you don't care about the people; you only want to make sure the consequences aren't avoided. Pregnancy and childbirth should be a blessing, not a punishment for sex. You really don't give a damn about the children so produced - our adoption and foster systems are overcrowded, and children of accidental pregnancies are more likely to be abused or neglected than "wanted" children.
I sent in a donation as soon as I heard my state had allowed this rubbish to pass the Senate. It has passed the house in previous bills, but was voted down by the Senate. This time it will pass without intervention from the ACLU. I'm writting my representatives as well.
"I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born." Ronald Reagan
People are sooo selfish these days! Abortion is a convenience for the parents of the unwanted child. What about the child? It has no right to live? What happened to life being about caring about others, not just yourself?
