Yes;
Well it is not going to happen. people will make up their own minds.

Neither he nor I had any rights in that situation,
It is your life that is being stopped. What if someone were to kill you and claim it was a late abortion ? As for your father, he will be paying maintenance for a long time to come...why doesnt he have any rights ? If he is left out of the decision then he shouldnt be held responsible for its outcome.

The argument 'd be the same as a party guest (or gate-crasher),
who was ordered to depart, by his hostess

Wrong. The argument would be the same as throwing a baby out of a moving car because you dont want it.

Your inablity to use words is making a farce of this debate. look up the definition of parasite. Look up the definition of trespasser. Now look up the definition of killing.

You compare human beings to insects ? I hope you are never lowered to that position by another. They might think your life is worthless.
Why not apply abortion to the end of life ? What if nobody wants you ? You are a nuisance and people can see no reason in stopping your life from continuing. You are an insect. What do you do ?

Ionus... When you are a woman and and "fallen in love" then fell pregnant, then made a decision whether to keep the fetus or not, then, what you have to say on the matter would be interesting, but still have no bearing on anyone 's decisions in that regard, especially so if you are a male and more so if it is possible to go to somewhere else for a abortion, without being locked up for murder or man-woman slaughter.

@tenderfoot,
Abortion should never be a crime. It should be avoided where ever possible. The truth is it is easy to make a decision under stress to abort and regret it for the rest of your life. It is a lot harder to have a child and then regret it for the rest of your life.

Arguments like it is a womans body so it is her decision alone appeal to instincts towards rape. What if the man wants an abortion and the woman doesnt ? Isnt he entitled to his sperm back ? Its his body, its his decision. What about the man's body who will be paying for the baby ? Other arguments that say it is just a kidney, not a baby are plain stupid. It is alive and is developing independence as fast as possible. Why dont we abort the senile ? They wont know, they are just a kidney. It is not like they have sentience. The senile dont even know where they are and are not capable of independent life.

Some women are hunting for a rich dad to support the baby they want, all they have to do is get pregnant. How is the man to know where she is with her cycle or if she is taking precautions ?

The bottom line is when ever a couple have sex a baby should be considered as the outcome. Dont have sex with anyone you dont want to breed with, then if it results in pregnancy at least you have that covered.

Too many abortions are done for the sake of removing annoyance. Some have used it as a form of birth control. I think the record is in the tens of abortions.

More support is needed for women with babies, not funding for easy fixes for the irresponsible.

@Ionus,
The thing about abortion is that however much everyone keeps arguing about it and whatever laws are enacted, it will never go away. It just moves from a clinic to a backstreet kitchen table or another state. Sure it should be avoided wherever possible but life is messy in the real world.

Calm down, Ionus; no need for emotion. I suspect that I knew those words long b4 u did.
This is a debate that I 've enjoyed for many decades,
long b4 Roe v. Wade; tons of fun.
My Catholic friends used to advocate your position,
whereas I champion freedom of self-defense, individualism, n hedonism.




Ionus wrote:

I know that some Catholic influenced dictionaries foolishly n ARBITRARILY except
the same species from the concept of parasitism.
Of course, I reject such nonsense.
Parasitism is taking value by force or stealth
in exchange for nothing; we all know that.

For what reason, Ionus?
If u have a point, then tell us what it IS,
and we 'll discuss its merits.

Nonsense; again, I set forth my analogy of an insect sneaking in

Lots of data supports this. The number of abortions in countries where it is legal is only slightly higher than those where it is not. The only difference is criminalizing the woman. It's good that we have such vacant prisons and so much money lying around. I guess we should be filling these places up with women.

U r a GOOD SPORT, Ionus to show the definition both
with and without the ideological exception (which I high lighted, for e z reference). U have risen in my esteem, for your fairness.

I have already seen both of the renderings of lexicography.
I already KNOW that there exist Catholic lexicographers,
who add the emotion-driven, ideology-driven, pseudo-exception about "another species",
that has no support in logic. As I 've said b4, I 've argued this long b4 Roe v. Wade.

I certainly ACCEPT the other definitions that u provided hereinabove (the ones without that exception).

I don 't understand the question.
Religious people will decide what concerns them....


Religious people need to be given other problems to worry about... If they attack rights no one can live without, they should be forced to defend the right of religion by which they do so... It they petition to end abortion, people should petition to amend the constitution to disallow freedom of religion and assembly... You could end party politics at the same time...
