Comments on: Abortion issue hard to avoid in healthcare debate Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: eatsyourface Wed, 20 Jan 2010 04:15:29 +0000 @TC:

USA is definitely NOT the greatest country in the world by any standard except perhaps the one with the most unchecked greedy capitalism running everything, including the economy.

Human beings? Really?

I think it’s a matter of opinion. Personally I see a POTENTIAL human being, not something that absolutely WILL become a human being.

While I do not support inhumane or cruel practices to end life, think for millisecond WHY people get abortions.

Because: a) they don’t want a child or
b)they cannot afford to feed and clothe one or

These children are UNWANTED, they are likely to grow up with little love if their mother/father tried to get rid of them somehow.

Not having abortions makes people’s lives miserable, both the parent’s and the child’s.

And who are the people who most want abortions? Statistically, teenage mothers. You think they can afford one? Most do not even tell their parents! If we want to reduce the number of unwanted children, you need to give these girls an affordable option.

And if you STILL think abortion is a monstrosity, then do your best to get the government to promote sexual education and high schools to have free condoms available.

The Stupak amendment is very similar to the Hyde Amendment which stated after Roe v Wade that federal funds could not be used for abortions under Medicaid. I wish it was a win for life but it is just not a loss if that makes sense. A minimum requirement in my opinion.

By: TC Fri, 13 Nov 2009 13:51:01 +0000 Thank you for reminding us of the horrors of abortion. It is sickening we are allowed to do this to human beings.

People think someone can just make an appointment for a simple procedure to end the life of another. Well, there is nothing simple about abortion.

What a shameful tragedy the greatest country in the world allows this to happen.

By: brian lee Thu, 12 Nov 2009 01:16:03 +0000 M G Carbone thank you for your posting ,but politics prevails and liberals just don,t want to know,the less they know the less they will have to deal with it.But behind the scenes you have companies that abortions are their product and they offer bonuses for productivity.This is a billion dollar industry,and they have many connections in DC.One fight that abortionists will have in the future which will bring them crashing down is to try and impose on the present choice of doctors and nurses to refuse to perform abortions.These liberals have a mindset that if they can coerce people to behave like them it gives them justification!but there will be a revolt in the medical profession.

By: :M G Carbone Wed, 11 Nov 2009 20:22:06 +0000 After looking into present abortion procedures I realized that to be prochoice
means being pro-torture-the-baby-to-death.
These operations are one horrible atrocity after another. Difficult to believe they are done by the millions in a so-called civilized society and a supposedly compassionate medical profession.
According to most experts, the developing baby can feel pain early in
gestation This can be seen in the video “The Silent Scream” produced by
Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a former abortionist. (Google Videos). At 12 weeks, it shows the baby struggling and trying to scream
as he/she is torn to pieces by the powerful suction tube. The abortionist who
performed it, quit after seeing what he had done.
In surgical abortions, the mother usually gets mild sedation and either local anesthesia into the cervix or regional anesthesia in the spinal nerves. The baby gets none. Nor does the baby mercifully get presugical euthanasia in mostcases
In D&E and D&X, performed in later term, there is usually no
pain prevention for the baby. In D&E, the baby is cut or torn to pieces and the skull crushed to ease extraction. In D&X, the legs and body are delivered and scissors thrust into the skull to destroy the brain, the skull is suctioned
out and collapsed to pass easily.
Less used today in the US, saline abortion is the most excruciating of all.
The amnionic fluid that surrounds the baby is sucked out and replaced by
concentrated salt solution which corrodes away the skin and intestinal lining,
causing a slow and painful death, one hour to many hours; sometimes delivered alive. Called ” Candy Apple Babies” by the nurses due to the abscence of skin.
We need laws to stop these inhuman practices. We have laws controlling
humane slaughter of animals. We need humane slaughter laws for our smallest humans.

By: TC Wed, 11 Nov 2009 00:45:29 +0000 Eric. The problem with you diatribe against the right/conservatives is that even Obama believes in a marriage between a man and woman. That’s one thing I actually agree with him on.

Actually Eric, you have no idea how much I actually protect your right to say what you want. Don’t even presume to know anything about me and being protected from me. That made me chuckle because you have no idea who you are talking to…no idea…I will just leave it at that. Just say thank you…

Blame the power of the voters on what you want to. The same can be said about the Obama being elected president. He based his whole campaign on fear….And now the American people realize they were duped by this unqualified individual. He can talk a good talk, but he is only a community organizer (I am not disparaging those who choose to community organize). My point is that he is not qualified and the Americans who put him there now know the disaster they elected.

You certainly are a blamer. The vast majority of Americans believe in marriage between a man and a woman. The vast minority are lost, like you.

By: Eric H Tue, 10 Nov 2009 21:58:21 +0000 Numerous mistakes in that last post, long day and tiered of arguing with TC.

By: Eric H Tue, 10 Nov 2009 21:56:14 +0000 Fear and lies TC, fear and lies is what repealed the gay marriage law in Maine. A familiar tactic from the right wing. All the gay community was looking for were the rights afforded straight married couples, which a gay couple do not currently have.
I thought you conservatriods were all about personal rights and responsibility, when will you stand up for EVERYBODY’S rights and not discriminate?
No I’m not saying leave the government out of TC, sometimes we need them to protect us from the likes of you. What I’m saying is it’s up to you, me or anyone else to decide who is right or wrong in the eyes of God. That is the central argument of the religious right, they want to interrupt and enforce the “word of God” as they see it. I happen to disagree with them.

By: getplaning Tue, 10 Nov 2009 21:44:34 +0000 If the Catholic Church–or any other church–wants to lobby Congress and influence abortion legislation, let them pay taxes for that privilege.
