You'll see the rest, but let's explore a little more deeply. Why don't we go from top to bottom?
Our first contestant is Hot Topics: Abortion.
The term “abortion” refers to any premature expulsion of a human fetus, whether naturally spontaneous, as in a miscarriage, or artificially induced, as in a surgical or chemical abortion. Today, the most common usage of the term “abortion” applies to artificially induced abortion which, sadly, has become the most common form of abortion. In other words, abortion is primarily the result of a mother (and father) deciding to terminate a pregnancy by killing their unborn baby.
Actually, people do also refer to animal miscarriages as abortions. Not everyone, but some people. So don't be all "human" with me.
So everything was great when most abortions were miscarriages?
The word "baby" is not a scientific term, it is either a noun or adjective. We say "fetus" because that's what it is, a fetus. A baby is born, while a fetus is sitting around in a uterus. Stop using emotionally blackmailing words to convince people to become pro-life. I'm serious.
A cause for sadness and shame.
The killing of unborn babies is a crime against humanity and a great shame for our world. In the United States, more than 1.3 million unborn babies are killed in abortions each year. Approximately 50 million babies have been killed since abortion was legalized in 1973.
I'm going to rephrase this in two different ways.
"A Cause for Sadness and Shame" by Katherine The Liberal Blogger Person
The killing of infants is a crime against humanity and a great shame for our world. In the United States, many infants are murdered due to infanticide. It also happens globally, leaving many infants without life.
Draft 2 of "A Cause For Sadness and Shame" by Katherine The Liberal Blogger Person
Denying women the right to choose what they do with their bodies is a crime against humanity and a great shame for our world. For years, anti-choice groups have tried to deny women as people and make them walking ovaries. They value a fetus more than a thinking, breathing, living woman. They wish to control the sex lives of people and send us all back to 1950's America, not only in the basic family unit, but to our closets where he keep our clothes hangers.
Infanticide is a crime. Denying women as people is anti-feminist and a crime. Abortion? No.
How many so called "babies" were killed due to illegal abortion? Are you finally caring about these "babies" when women can walk out of a clinic and got on with their life rather than being "whores" who die because they stuck a coat hanger up their vagina? Because people now realize women are people you're suddenly pissed? Why weren't you busy trying to kill Tiller's dad, who gave over 200 abortions to women before Roe and Wade had a fight on the playground? I know, because back when Tiller's dad was doing his job, you didn't give a flying fuck.
Likewise Roe v. Wade bestowed upon the unborn the status of being the property of their mothers to do with as they choose, including abortion up to the ninth month of pregnancy.
Yeah, women deciding what to do with their bodies is awful. Now that women aren't walking ovaries you're pissed. Women aren't property anymore, but they sure as hell want that to change.
Abortion affects more than the unborn child.
Abortion impacts the baby’s mother and, in many cases, the baby’s father, grandparents, other family members, and friends. That’s why long-term solutions to abortion must include both full protection for the rights of unborn children to live and full provision of positive alternatives and help for women in unplanned pregnancies.
You know going through unplanned pregnancies can be extremely mentally damaging to women? You didn't? I'm surprised. Oh yeah, you were busy sticking your fingers in your ears and singing "La, la, la, I can't hear you! I'm right, you are wrong! La, la, la!"
How abortions are done
Abortions are done by a wide variety of methods ranging from high-suction aspiration to methods involving razor-sharp surgical instruments. In the unthinkable partial-birth abortion method, a fully-alive baby is almost completely delivered before surgical scissors are placed in the back of the baby’s skull. As hard as is to believe, unborn children do not even receive an anesthetic before they are a literally dismembered in the womb.
Talking about the ways abortions are done isn’t pleasant. But there’s no getting around the need to know these things to understand the act of abortion in its full context.
This is the kind of brainwashing crap they use to try to get people to become pro-life. It's a load of lies. If you see a bloody fetus, here's what that fetus really is: Photoshopped. That bloody fetus does not exist and is only a scare story.
Partial birth abortion does not exist! How ignorant are you people?
The way you guys talk about abortion is fucking hilarious. Did you miss the Rainbow Dash GIF or what?
You think you understand all about abortion? Well you don't! You only know the "fetuses are pweshus babiez" side, so no, you don't know abortion in its full context. Stop spreading lies, you're breaking one of the things your religion says not to do.
Are abortions really performed as late as the last three months of pregnancy?
The unfortunate answer is yes. In fact, late-term abortion is one of the specialties at abortion clinics such as the Women’s Health Care Services abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas. The Wichita clinic is reportedly the leading provider of late-term abortions in the United States and boasts on its web site that it offers both second and third trimester abortions.
In the latest effort to keep abortion unrestricted up to the moment of birth, abortion supporters have filed suits in federal courts around the country to block the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act signed into law by President Bush in late 2003.
People who say that women have a right to an abortion use different arguments. These arguments take five basic forms, as you will see below. Familiarize yourself with these and you will be prepared to speak the truth on behalf of those who are unable to speak for themselves.
Have you guys ever listened to your own arguments? The speak for themselves stuff is bullshit. What about people who don't have a voice? Why not fight for them? And it takes years for actual born babies to be able to speak their mind. Are you fighting for the six month old who can't speak their mind?
Claim: “It’s not a baby or a person — it’s just a blob of tissue.”
Response: When a woman is pregnant, science tells us that the new life she carries is a complete and fully new human being from the moment of fertilization. By the time most abortions can be performed, the baby already has a beating heart and identifiable brain waves. The baby living in her mother is as distinct and unique a new person/human being as you are from me, and as deserving of protection under the law as we are. The baby every mother carries has a beating heart at 18 days after fertilization and brain waves as early as six weeks after fertilization. Most abortions are not performed until nine weeks of the pregnancy. Even RU 486 chemical abortions can’t be done until after six weeks.
My factual response: A complete and full human being from fertilization?
A heart beat is a reflex, it does not signify life in any way. Why don't you worry about if a fetus has working lungs so when the fetus is born it will be able to breathe? Oh yeah, lungs are useless. You just need a beating heart to live. Brain waves? You'll need those, too. But lungs? Oh hell no.
Claim: “It’s my body” or “It’s a women’s choice.”
Response: Every mother is faced with profound decisions to make for herself and her child, but these decisions can never include the right to kill her baby. Mothers facing difficult pregnancies require accurate and compassionate information about the facts of fetal development, as well as the practical help that is available to them through the more than 3,000 mother-helping centers around the USA. Mothers have a right to be fully informed about the facts at least 24 hours before making this life-or-death decision for themselves and their children.
Like I said, going through unplanned pregnancies can be extremely mentally damaging to a woman. Don't forget I also mentioned they don't care about the health of women. They don't care about the woman. What do they mean by "can never include the right to kill her 'baby'"? Look at this photo:
Those so called pregnancy clinics meant to "help" women are a load of shit. Those are pregnancy crisis clinics. What do these clinics do? They are known for trying to convert women, coercing them into staying with their abusive husbands, spreading lies, and stalking and harassing women.
I would definitely recommend those places!
Sidebar: Is an unborn child part of a woman’s body?
“My body, my choice.” That’s been the popular slogan of abortion supporters for decades, but is it accurate? Behind the statement is a very calculated attempt to frame the abortion issue as one that concerns only on person: the mother. But what about the baby – is he or she part of the woman’s body? Absolutely not! Think about it – an unborn child’s genetic code is completely unique and different that the mother’s genetic code. The bone structure is different. Even the baby’s gender is different from the mom if the baby is a boy! The baby and the mom are two distinct persons. Sure, the baby depends upon the nurturing environment of his mother’s body while waiting to be born, but that doesn’t mean the baby is a body part like a liver or kidney. Next time you hear someone say “my body, my choice” – remind them they are forgetting someone.
The fetus, not baby, is a parasite. That parasite may only use the mother's body if the mother wants the fetus to. Also, a woman has the right to believe whether she can or cannot abort the fetus. But you know, women are airheads who can't choose; rich, fat old white men have to do it for them. You know who these guys are concerning: the fetus.
The Woman Has:
-The Right To Think For Herself
The Fetus Has:
-The Anti-Choice Movement
I read something along these lines before:
"On one side I had my husband and kids, my whole life. On the other side I had a fetus. I knew who mattered more."
That was one of the best things I've ever heard.
Claim: “What will we do with all the unwanted kids?” (Poor babies, overpopulation, abuse, etc.)
Response: We will never end poverty in our world simply by killing poor children. The poor mother who is encouraged to have an abortion today is just as poor tomorrow. Problems such as lack of job security, education, or abuse are not cured by ignoring their existence in a woman’s life and turning to abortion as a way to make it all “go away.” The problem is lack of development — not population. What women of the world desire are good basic health care for themselves and their families. In those countries where abortion is not legal, it is often because of strong cultural and religious beliefs that respect each new life. That respect needs to be backed up with wiser development plans — not more dangerous and deadly abortion activity. In countries where there is not even the guarantee of clean running water, abortion will only become a death sentence for Third World women and their babies.
No, the poor mother is even more poor because she has to feed someone. Reality check, in places where people so called respect life there are (illegal) abortions. Why? Because if a woman is going to get an abortion she WILL get one! You people can never change that! Stop forcing women to carry their pregnancy full term! Get your fucking fingers out of your ears! Another thing I read on the internet before (I also don't have the exact quote):
"If I accidentally had an unplanned pregnancy I'd get an abortion so I could be the best mother I could be. I can't afford a kid and it would be unfair to the kid."
Words to live by.
Is this True?
Supporters of abortion claim that abortion helps reduce child abuse since the babies being aborted are “unwanted” by their mothers.
According to a new study published in the medical journal Acta Paediatrica, women with a history of at least one induced abortion are 2.4 times more likely to abuse their children than a women who have not had an abortion. The author, Priscilla Coleman of Bowling Green State University, suggested that “emotional difficulties and unresolved grief responses” could be leading factors leading to unhealthy parental responses. Previous studies have also linked induced abortion to anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, all of which may also adversely affect parent-child relationships.
For more information on this study and many others, visit the Elliot Institute online at www.afterabortion.info.
It's not true. That's the so called "Post-Abortion Syndrome" bullshit. Why do women feel this grief? Anti-choicers are busy harassing her because she "killed a baby". Now let's worry about actual neglected and abused children.
Claim: “If abortion is made illegal, women will die in back alleys.”
Response: The numbers pro-abortionists often use to back their claims are vast fabrications mostly made up by the pro-abortion lobby as admitted by Dr. Bernard Nathanson, founder of NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League). The real numbers of deaths before 1973, when abortion was illegal, are shockingly different. Thirty-nine women died of illegal abortions in 1972, the year before Roe v. Wade. Those are thirty-nine tragedies along with their thirty-nine children who also died because of abortion’s violence. The true reason the deaths have decreased from abortion isn’t legalization, it was the widespread introduction of antibiotics into medicine that saved the lives of women who would have otherwise died of botched abortions. In fact, the main forms of abortions have changed very little since the middle of this century! The only thing that legalizing abortion did was to give abortionists the right to hang their shingle on the front door and stop using the back alley!
"Pro-Abortionists"? Wow. Illegal abortion has been going on for years. Watch this:
Claim: “What about a woman who is carrying a disabled or sick child? Or a woman who has been raped or is the victim of incest?”
Response: We don’t cure illness by killing the patient. Aborting a child with a disability or illness is the height of prejudice. When a family learns that the child they are expecting may have a special need, that family needs support and good solid medical information — not the death of their most fragile member. Society must abandon this attitude that uses arbitrary yardsticks to measure a person’s worth. When a woman has been raped or a victim of incest, she has been the victim of a terrifying act of violence of which she is a true victim. Tragically, we are some times faced with a second victim of this great crime committed by the rapist, a baby. While pregnancy is extremely rare from rape, it can happen. The cruelest thing that can happen to the women in question is to now be pitted against her child, who is the second victim. In several studies done across America, women who were encouraged to use abortion in such circumstances felt that they had been put through a second act of violence, the violence and pain of the mechanical rape of abortion. Worse than that, they stated feelings of being made into the victimizer of their own child. They felt that their baby had paid with his or her life for the crime of the rapist. Meanwhile, mothers who found support to carry their children to term, whether they opted for adoption or kept their babies, felt that they’d turned something horrible into something life-giving. The key here is support for both victims, mother and child.
That man and his wife knew their child wouldn't have a good life, definitely not a long one. They didn't want an abortion, but they did what they believe was right. What the hell is your problem anti-choicers?
You anti-choicers understand every raped woman who got pregnant everywhere? You know every single one of them don't want an abortion! Tell me, how do you do that?
Sidebar: Prenatal Testing: A Loaded Gun?
Earlier this year, USA Today reported that new prenatal tests are making it easier to identify Down syndrome and other genetic problems in unborn babies. But what exactly do these tests mean for the children? According to the USA Today article, “Though genetic testing doesn’t necessarily mean aborting abnormal fetuses, and estimated 90% of women choose abortion in that circumstance.”
This figure parallels earlier prenatal testing reports dating as far back as 1975. That was the year the OB-GYN News reported that in a survey of 2,187 pregnant women who underwent amniocentesis prenatal testing, 62 tested positive for carrying children with Down syndrome. Sadly, 60 of these babies identified with Down syndrome were aborted and 2 died as a result of miscarriage. Liz Townsend summed it up best in an article in the National Right to Life News when she wrote, “It’s clear that this research will result in more unborn children with Down Syndrome killed in the womb, rather than helping find a cure or assisting those with the syndrome to live more healthy and happy lives.
Having Down Syndrome is very hard. I want a cure, but I believe a mother has the choice whether to carry the child. The mother knows their kid's life will be hell. They have the right to care for their child, whether by carrying their pregnancy full term or having an abortion. They may think for themselves. Remember the picture I made you guys look at.
Did You Know…
• A baby’s heart begins to beat around 22 days after conception
• There have been over 50 million abortions since 1973.
You said earlier it was around 18 days! Why do you contradict yourself?
You've already stated the 50 million lie and I don't believe it. Stop with the lies!
