Partial Birth Abortions a Slippery Slope!?
Please all women ( no matter race, sexuality, or religious beliefs)
Don't be fooled into thinking that partial birth abortions were something a selfish woman did because she didn't want her child. They were only given to women who lives were in severe danger, or the child were severely deformed or sickly. The law that passed yesterday still left it so these mothers could have a partial abortion....So ask yourself, if only certain people were getting partial abortions in the first place, why making a law stating that ONLY these mothers can get one? I'll tell you why it is a step to overturn a women's right to have and make a choice over her own body. And that ladies is the slippery slope to take away everything the WOMENS movement stood for....We only make .77 cent on the dollar versus men.....We make up over half of a population, why can't we decide what is right for our bodies. Nobody is saying abortion is right, but IT ISN'T ANYONES BUSINESS BUT THE WOMANS!!
quit whining. women can still get abortions. they just limit how, thats all. and since when is this a woman vs men controversy? men cant even get abortions! leave the men out of it. believe it or not, women can vote too!!!
It's killing babies
also don't be fooled into thinking that this procedure was even done 10 times a year.
once again, the family values, small govt crowd have illustrated that the life of an individual woman is not as important as a political agenda.
and the small govt crowd have once again shown us that it's ok for the govt to meddle in the personal affairs of a woman's health care and body.
but gun control should not even be discussed.
say goodbye to the cons in 2008 - as they straw further and further from the herd...
The murder of innocent children should not be a right, you have been fooled into thinking its about choice AFTER the fact when we have all the choices we need BEFORE the fact.
Cheers and have a nice day
I'm 100% pro choice. I'm all for a woman's right to choose whether she's going to continue a pregnancy or not..but...
I honestly cannot think one instance in the entire 12 years I've been in the medical field where the preservation of the mother's life could have been accomplished ONLY by means of a partial-birth abortion. Not one instance.
Emergency cesarean sections are often perfomed for that reason. (The 'youngest' pregnancy I personally recall being delivered by C-section was 27 weeks, if memory serves.)
Once a fetus is able to sustain life OUTSIDE the mother's womb, it has the same basic human rights as the rest of us.
A 12-week-old fetus cannot sustain it's own life; a 19-week fetus cannot, so far, sustain it's own life -- and therefore it cannot have rights that are equal to or supercede that of the woman carrying that pregnancy.
But a 27-week, 30-week...32-week...at that point, the fetus becomes viable and able to sustain it's own life (or able be sustained by medical means) outside the mother's womb. At that point, it becomes an individual person and entitled to some human rights.
In the case of a pregnancy far enough along to be covered under 'partial-birth abortion,' -- those are separate, viable human beings and it DOES absolutely become somebody else's business.
At the point of expected viability of the fetus....the method of partial-birth abortion ---it actually does become a pretty sick murder.
p.s. At five-months' gestation, a fetus is not viable outside the mother's womb.
A termination of a pregnancy at five months (20 weeks) still falls under regular abortion.
Most states ban abortion past 24 weeks because anything beyond 24 weeks is considered viable.
A 5-month fetus will not be able to live outside the mother's womb -- no matter what heroic medical measures are undertaken. Your friend may have had to deliver the fetus, but that's the way later-term abortions are done.
Partial-birth abortions are performed on much, much later pregancies on fetuses that ARE able to live outside the womb.
That's why even so many pro-choicers are against it.
Yes, I think you will see many states enact laws that restrict a women's access to health care now that one has been upheld.
'We only make .77 cent on the dollar versus men'
Actually, when you control for factors such as hours, experience, profession, and career length, the numbers are very close. Women, in general, spend fewer years in the workforce, work fewer full-time jobs, etc.
When you are pregnant, it isn't just your body. You have created another.
I have had the opportunity to witness what they do in a partial birth abortion and it is SICK! It is wrong on so many levels. When a woman gets pregnant it is not about her and only her anymore there is a life other than hers to consider. I cannot and will not ever stand up for this and say it is EVER right. I would put my life on the line if it were me and the baby.
The 'Slippery Slope' is known as a fallacy for a reason.
I will be one of the first to stand up and say that abortion is a problem and that abortion rates are by far to high.
That being said, it is a slippery slope. Although I may not like abortion, that is my choice. I have no right to impose that choice on another woman. The problem with the pro-life movement is that support stops at birth. The pro-life movement is only concern with the well being of the baby up until the day it is born. That is a problem and will only lead to social ramifications we can not even imagine.
The right to choose is imperative. We would be naive to think that there is an adequate system in place to deal with these unwanted children and their mother after the point of birth. That is just not a reality.
It is a slippery slope. It is shown that abortion does not stop even if it is outlawed. The lesser of the evils is to provide a safe place for women to have an abortion if they feel as though it is their only option. The last thing we need is women being forced into unlicensed clinics, being mutilate and even dieing as a result. Some are viewing this decision as a victory, I view it as a gigantic step back. it is only a matter of time before states start to take the necessary steps to all out ban abortion.
'it is a step to overturn a women's right to have and make a choice over her own body'
that's one way of putting it i guess... of course another way would be to say that it's, 'murdering a baby.'
Girlfriend, the Partial Birth Abortion Act does not conflict with the life of the mother. The mother's life is guaranteed in the act. However, most partial birth abortions aren't done to save the life of the mother.
As far as the euthanasia argument goes, why don't we just abort all mentally retard children to save them from a life of misery? If the child is destined to die soon after birth, let it be done naturally.
I love how we think God doesn't create life.
it is killing babies that would live short horrible lives of suffering. Sounds like humanitarianism to me.
,Get over it, I cannot wait for them to outlaw this crime in the first place. Who among us made it right for us to commit murder, and call it abortion...women's rights my ***. Roe vs. wade, yeah we needed to rethink that along time ago. What about a father's rights... Where do those start. The moment you think about sleeping with someone, you should think about the worst possible outcome...unwanted child etc., and if you are pro-choice, go get a hysterectomy before you even start, or get your tubes tide... If you are going to kill one child, you do not deserve the chance to have another.
***There are too many people out there who want kids, for someone to just kill theirs.
***and IT ISN'T ANYONE'S CHOICE BUT THE WOMAN'S, SHE DID HAVE HELP CONCIVEING THAT CHILD. SO YES IT IS SOMEONE ELSE'S BUSINESS.!!!
What happened ---did you watch The View this morning or something??
Sadly, you are only fooling yourself it you don't think partial birth abortion are not murder, as they are; a fetus can be viable and live as early as 22.5 weeks.
Your reasoning as to only making 77 cent on the dollar...SO WHAT! That is your child and even if you hate the father the baby is 1/2 YOU.
I disagree, although Roe V. Wade lead the way for abortions.
I guess I will be in the minority then to say that a partial birth abortions are MURDER!
I can speak from experience as I was older when I had my child and was told my child COULD be retarded and I should be checked by pulling amniotic fluid out of my body, which in reseaching I found could cause me to spontaneously abort my child and I chose not to, and now, my child, a son, which I am raising on my own is a happy, healthy 13 year old boy.
My roommate in college, who was 43 when she conceived, warned her child was fine, but gave birth the a deformed baby after a full term, was glad she had the baby, even though he died after 2 weeks in intensive care, because she knew she had given him the best chance possible.
How can I explain it to you in simple terms...ok..woman goes to the ocean with her son, he sees turtles stranded in the sand and his Mom tells him, sorry, but these turtles are going to die because they did not make it to hight tide. The son puts the turtles in the ocean and send them on their journey. The Mom asks 'Why did you do that when you know it will not make a difference?'. Her young son replies, it may not make a difference to the turtles overall, but I think it made a difference to the turtle I set free in the water.'.
Think about the wisdom from the words of a child...it may not mean a difference to you, but could make a world of difference to the child that want to be born.
It takes two to make a baby, generally speaking.
IMHO, a man should have a say in the abortion debate.
I don't think it is a matter for the federal government to decide, however.
I'm against abortion in all cases except where the life of the mother is at stake. I'm also against the fact that the government can tell me what medical procedure should be allowed or disallowed.
Yet, another 'slippery slope'.
I believe the fetus Should have constitutional rights also and 'Mothers' should have their health taken into account,however it was a fine ruling yesterday that will force the irresponsible to be accountable. Thank you Supreme Court!
OK, I'm a WOMAN !!!
These are BABIES and has NOTHING to do with a 'Woman's Right' !!!!!!!
Let's get it right - the Constitution; 'LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS' I see NO WHERE else either that would support - ABORTION!!!!!
Everyone has a GOD - GIVEN right to LIVE!
As far as who's business - A MAN just over 2000 years ago -died and gave up His life for YOU!!!! Three days later he Rose from the DEAD and SITS on the Right Hand of GOD!
ABORTION - MURDER
PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION - WORSE THAN A HORROR MOVIE!!!!!
Think Again about it - See the TRUTH!
Take Care and God Bless!
