The problem with their comments is that they assume that if fetuses were persons this would mean the state could legitimately force women to be physically attached to them. But the state has no legitimate power to force women to be physically attached to any person. Indeed, a state with the power to physically attach one person to another person would be the very essence of tyranny.

He brings hope :]]

The point is, since the baby doesn’t have the ability to voice their opinion at that time(which if they did I’m pretty sure they would say to keep them alive) the mother is in charge of that. But instead, she just gives the doctors the go ahead to kill it. Who ever gave us women the right to murder? If some random person kills an innocent life, they’re gonna go to jail for their actions. What’s the difference with abortion? I don’t get how people are for abortion because it’s the murder of an innocent life. You could be killing the next president. The justice system clearly says that no one has the right to murder when they put away serial killers but when it comes to abortion, it’s completely okay to take away a life. No one wants to take responsibility for their own actions. They want to be able to bring pleasure to themselves but when it comes to the woman getting pregnant, they want nothing to do with it. People don’t want to take accountability for anything these days.

This is not an issue of right or wrong, winning or losing. This is an issue of compassion for all of our brothers and sisters and of helping one another. Morality can not be legislated, it must be empowered!

(It’s in the BIBLE, look it up!)

And, in the weeks prior to today I had completely written off BOTH of these men. Thinking to myself “Out of all the people in the United States…and THESE TWO were the best that we could come up with???” I mean, COME ON! I was and still may be ready to give up my precious right to vote out of protest. Protest is the only thing I can call it…But, one more thing has come to my attention, the fact the Obama is pro-choice. This cannot be tolerated by someone who wants to occupy the highest position in the U.S. To disregard human life at one of its most vulnerable times, is obscene. Can you think of another time in one’s life when you are the most vulnerable??? (When you grow older and cannot care for yourself?) May God help us all…….and our country.

As a result, I have met many families with surviving children who have Trisomy 13 (including those with the Full chromosome “triplicated”). Almost all of them were told they needed to seek an abortion. Many who insisted on carrying to term were advised (even pressured, sometimes relentlessly) to seek no care beyond comfort measures for their child after birth, even when all conditions present were considered to be highly treatable. My daughter is now a young adult who can walk, talk, read, write, and calculate. Her first few years were rough, but she has been such a blessing in the life of our family. I could never vote for someone who has so little respect for human life that he would allow a baby who has already endured the suffering of being prematurely enduced to lie comfortless until death. Obama’s socialist views regarding the medical field will lead to even more of this type of behavior. I have a Canadian friend whose live-born T-13 infant (who had few signs of T-13, none of them visible) was murdered at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children by being given a huge overdose of meds and was then left to die, because one of the doctors signed a DNR order for my friend’s baby. (My friend has proof!) My friend had left the hospital briefly to check on her other children at home and get more clothes, as she had not been home in days. The baby had actually been at home and had developed a respiratory problem which required rehospitalization.

i believe in capital punishment as well. so i am not a hypocrite unlike most prolifers and prochoicers. (capital punishment and abortion go hand in hand – think about it)
if someone is going to break into your house and ruin your life, you should have the right to defend yourself. that is the castle law in texas (look it up).
likewise, if you are a woman and someone rapes you and their resultant fetus is going to ruin the rest of your life in the future as some unwanted children do, why not abort???? (this is the basis of roe vs wade – look it up)
i am happy to be in this country where you have freedom of choice. freedom to defend yourself from burglars invading your home and also from rapists invading your womb.
just follow the laws of this country and if you dont like them, guess what? you also have the freedom to move to another country. (like mexico, which does not believe in capital punishment and limits abortion)
