Comments on: Candidates spar over abortion rights Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: brian lee Fri, 17 Oct 2008 06:17:20 +0000 i understand a women should be able to self determine her own productive rights but because of entrenched politics we have decent people unfortunenatly have to support the action of a baby being dragged from the womb and murded on the way to stay partizan to a political agenda.we should get together and spend as much time as we do on renewable energy to try to develope tech to incubate the baby and give it a chance to live then every one will benifit including the mother.

By: kmle Fri, 17 Oct 2008 03:38:31 +0000 Here’s where your ‘choice’ begins and ends–whether to have sex or not— ok my fellow women, now CHOOSE– and then be willing to live with the consequences if you do choose to have sex. You need to decide BEFORE you have sex if you are ready to have a child–and if not, DON’T HAVE SEX. Simple as that. But problem is pro-choice women want to be just as sexually irresponsible and lust driven as so many men are because they think it makes them equal or “free” as men who spill their seed all over the place and don’t look back. But its not an ‘equality’ that is worth stooping down to claim.

To make such laws is to take a moral stand as well. If the law said abortion was murder, how many women do you think would be willing to go to jail for life or if not life carry that record? To be pregnant is a 9 month sojourn–its NOT a life sentence–its 9 mohths out of ones life. Can one not even put them self and their plans aside for 9 months??? I can tell you this, if money was put into providing all that any woman with a “crisis” pregnancy might need in order to go through the 9 months necessary to give birth and then adopt out the child–housing counseling of all types, medical care etc–with no judgments attached but simply caring support–then the women that you claim would be going somewhere else for abortions would also diminish. People need a great deal of support in that situation and if its there, the situation can be gotten through. If you HAVE to get through something, and have the support needed to do so, you get through it, no matter how much it disrupts your life. I can tell you that what you may suffer when your life is disrupted for 9 months, or the memory of a child out there that you bore being raised by someone else is far less painful than the memory that you took your own child’s life. I speak as one who has been there and only wished there had been a law to stop me.

I agree. Look at the thousand of lives that was lost before roe vs. wade. thousand of lives, women and the life in the womb was lost due to illegal abortions.

abortions still happen, legal or not. how inconsiderate of you to had no compassion for the thousand of lives, women and child that was lost before roe.

than of course, it is insignifant to you given that you would much rather one milliion women die from an illegal abortion along with the life in the womb than to have one woman had a safe abortion.

beside, thousand of lives are being lost right now. millions of 6 month year old iraqis brains were blow up for no reason at all than because bush had a “problem” with saddam not giving his oil to his best friends.

By: melanie Thu, 16 Oct 2008 20:47:33 +0000 also, about the Iraq thing, the Pope, several mainline prostentant churches, and religious church, temples, synagoue et al was vocally against it.

Here is what the Pope said:

John Paul II sent his personal representative, Cardinal Pio Laghi, a friend of the Bush family, to remonstrate with the U.S. President before the war began. Pio Laghi said such a war would be illegal and unjust. The message was clear: God is not on your side if you invade Iraq.

I find it sad that a person who said they are “pro-life” can support a pro death agenda.

the invasion of iraq take away innocent life too. what did a 6 month old iraqis who brains was blown up by a donald rumsfield bomb had anything to do with Saddam?

bush problem was with saddam, that do not means that he can murder and genocide a 6 month year old baby.

so in other words, it is okay to murder an innocent humen being like a 6 month old iraqi if that iraqi happen to live in a state that is rule by saddam.

why is that 6 month year old iraqi baby life less sacred then that of a life in the womb? or do the right to life stop at the moment of birth?

so in other words, you are saying that not everyone had the right to life. soldiers, 6 month year old iraqis babies, humen being on death row because they deserve to die.

beside, the inspector did went back in and bush kick out the inspector so that he can start the murders of 6 month year old iraqis. there was no wmd find in iraq.

do not give me the saddam hide the wmd or send it to syria. because if he did send it to syria, than bush should had invaded syria but he did not. if the wmd is still in syria, than why not invaded syria to get the wmd?

By: melanie Thu, 16 Oct 2008 20:32:30 +0000 So Matt,

I am to conclude that you are “pro-life”? If so, than do that means that if a woman do a self induce aboriton shall she get lethal injection? Should the rapist be given a medal if she abort it?

What about the iraqis. do soldiers be prosecuted or bush for murdering an innocent life.

By: Dave Thu, 16 Oct 2008 20:01:33 +0000 Pro-Choice can’t equal Pro-Death simply because many women make the choice to have the baby, which isn’t death. Pro-Choice is all about giving the woman the freedom to make her own choice to either have the baby and keep it, have the baby and give it up for adoption, or to abort the baby.

Quit trying to tie Pro-Choice to Pro-Abortion or Pro-Death. It’s the weakest link I’ve ever heard.

By: Matt Thu, 16 Oct 2008 19:54:59 +0000 @Matt – I’m assuming by your statements that you consider yourself “Pro-Life”? If so, I assume that means you’re adamantly against any and all wars regardless of who started them? Diplomacy should be tried even if we’ve been attacked? You’re against states’ self defense laws that allow you to shoot at intruders in your home? You’re against sanctioned executions, be they state or federal, regardless of the crimes committed? Those guns you want to have so many of are only ever used for shooting at targets, right? Because you’d never dream of taking the innocent life of a wild animal.

Boy, you’re stup*d. I’m anti-abortion because it takes the life of an innocent and defenseless victim. If you’re going to use the diplomacy argument, please read up on how well the 17 UN sanctions worked against Hussein before we invaded. Dictators don’t respond to “please.”

If someone ever enters my home, as any responsible gun owner will tell you, the first thing you do, if possible, is call 911, then barricade yourself in a secure room. You then announce the police are on the way, and that you have a gun. If the intruder continues to advance, and I’ve positively identified them as a threat, I empty 11 rounds into them. Your liberal mommy and daddy and all the TV you watch have certainly clouded your understanding of gun owners.

You’re right about the last point though. Although I’d be much more justified in getting my own meat than raising it in captivity for the purpose of being slaughtered, I don’t know that I could ever bring myself to do it while we still have companies that do it for us.

Allrighty then.

By: Rob Federle Thu, 16 Oct 2008 18:55:31 +0000 Like it or not, “Pro Choice” equals Pro Death. Millions of lives have been lost since 1973, in the name of choice. They weren’t guilty of anything, they weren’t attacking organisms, they were babies, human beings, and nothing will ever change that simple fact. Who have we killed? Maybe the person who should be President right now? Maybe the doctor who could find the cure for
Aids, or Altzheimers, or some other incurable disease? Look in to your heart as ask yourself, would you be here right now, if your own mother had been indoctrinated with her own “choice”?
