I think the most important thing to remember here, is that it is NONE OF OUR BUSINESS who has an abortion or not. It doesn't affect us in any way if Susie and Joe Lunchbucket want to get rid of an unwanted pregnancy.
Right MOAN, I agree that we can discuss different opinions,
I disagree when the individual belief becomes a political
issue discriminating against a woman's choices.
You know Finn d'Abuzz, it would be nice if you could
have a source for your statistics. Otherwise it is your opinion
only and you should state that.
To her it is not life.
I respect your belief, I just don't share it!

It would be nice to have a legitimate source to support your opinion.
Considering that the rate for first births is 26.4 per 1,000 women aged 15-44 (data from 2000), there seems to be something wrong with the sexual education.
I wonder why Louisiana is not on the Number of previous induced legal abortions statistics? If Louisiana is there, I didn't see it.
Even if the statistics showed that only 1% of all abortions were in the multiple-abortion category, I still think something needs to be done about this.
I do understand that many do not feel that a fetus is a child or it's not a child until it's born, etc. But, please try to understand that to those that believe it is a child (from conception or whenafter) it is a human being whose life is being taken away from them.
Anon and others may believe that this is none of my business or anyone else's but, if we do not make it our business then who saves the children? I see abortion as the killing of a child. I make it my business to make sure there are laws in this country against killing others. To me, there is no difference.
Would you please read what I actually do post. I HAVE SAID OVER AND OVER AGAIN, I HAVE FELT ABORTION WAS WRONG WAY BEFORE I BECAME A CHRISTIAN! I have always felt that abortion is killing a child. If I were not Christian and still had this belief what then?
3) You have no clue as to what I do for the born, unborn, or anything else for that matter.
We're back to legislating faith and religion as law
You have a short memory, we have been through this before, and you have told exactly what you have done ... nothing!! (but whine)
I want you to go back and show me anywhere that I have said your vote is any more or less than mine. I, in no form have said you shouldn't be able to vote, or what you want to vote for, at any time the vote comes up.
My problem with you is that your being is guided by a Christian religion which you say you believe in but don't follow. You let yourself be manipulated by so-called "Christians" that Christ himself would have absolutely nothing to do with! You don't pay attention to what is happening around you and you let yourself be carried away with spin that is designed for people just like you. I've been holding off on this for a while, but you keep giving me this ignorance about how I think you shouldn't be allowed to vote the way you want. Wake up, get a clue!!
