If the abortions are free there are no incentives to avoid pregnancy. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...


LOL.....Right, because abortions are so delightful and as addictive as crack!

One thing to mention is this,



Published in January, the study found that the death rate for children 18 and younger is higher in Detroit than in any U.S. city its size or larger. From The Detroit News: www.detroitnews.com...


You all should know that Detroit is in the Neighbourhood of 600 square miles in size.
But the majority of the people are stuffed into a much much smaller area.

I am standing firm in support of the people of Detroit, but I thought this fact was important.

What a load of crap. My mother in 1946 aborted her first baby at 8.5 months by my dad beating the stomach. Then #2 was drinking lye, but he lived and he is in an institution. Then #3 was by drinking drano, he lived to but has gran mal seizures, #4 was by starving but he lived. She was living with my grandparents when pregnant with me so she had to behave. You think your something special and righteous? Abortions have been happening since the beginning free or not, women will find a way. Wear a condom.

Twentyfive comments and no one has yet mentioned that the OP contradicts the title of the thread.

23000 abortions is less than half of the "1/3 of all pregnancies end in abortion" claims.

Either way, I think it is safe to call Detroit either a third world country or a battle zone by now.

Sounds like abortion should be made harder to come by. I understand abortion for victims of rape and other extreme circumstances, but 1/3 of the people are not under extreme circumstances. Poverty, maybe, but the answer to that isn't abortion, its education.

In any case, the negative aspects of Obamacare outweigh the positive and it needs to be repealed. Obamacare isn't needed for affordable contraception, either. My girl friend and I have been getting free contraception for years. Obamacare makes the government much more money than the previous health system. So that's what its all about. All at the expense of yet another freedom the liberals have taken away from the American people. At this rate, I see a future where breath is taxed.

Wouldn't it be a 'Sixth World Country'?

No. Pretty sure they protect against murder before and after a child is in a womb.


They don't want to help with healthcare headstart or food you but once you reach military age it's off to the armed services.


We want to help with education. We want to give everyone an equal opportunity to make their own way in life. If you fail to take advantage of that, and you fail to make something of yourself, well, you fail at life. I shouldn't have to work for those who won't work for themselves. They should get what they put in. If you're disabled, that's a different story. I'm talking about those who won't help themselves. There are way too many people on welfare right now who can work, but won't because they'd rather get paid by the government for doing nothing. So they need to be cut off from welfare. Welfare is too easy to obtain.

I think they are both pretty expensive in the long run.


Not in poor town.

Thank god for tha ACA!

It is such a hassle to to have buy condoms which are available at almost every grocery store, convenience store, gas station, drugstore and bar for a cheap reasonable price.

Try reading the article.

"Of an estimated 18,360 pregnancies among Detroit residents in 2012, the most recent year for which data are available, 5,693 ended in abortion, or 31 percent."

I honestly don't care if you take a coat hanger to your privates.
Fact still remains that WOMEN get pregnant and need to protect themselves. Again I'm not arguing the morality of the situation. I never got anyone but my wife pregnate, So please explain how that makes me all high and mighty.

Oh brother. Michigan is a blue state and has been for a long time.
Yet its the rights fault. By the way the draft died a long time ago.

A man should always wear protection unless you are trying to have children.
We should take it upon ourselves to stop it from happening.

AMEN!

If men AND women took 100% responsibility for making sure a pregnancy doesn't result, we'd be in a lot better place. Fewer pregnancies, fewer abortions and fewer unwanted children.

It's neither the man's nor the woman's responsibility, it's BOTH.

And you're right. If a man doesn't want to get involved in child support or a custody nightmare, he should take responsibility.
If a woman doesn't want to have to raise a child on her own, she should take responsibility.

But you don't want to teach sexually active young people about contraception, or make it easy for them to obtain. In fact, you want to make them illegal in many cases... (If you're going to speak for all conservatives, then I'm going to blame YOU for the insane things conservatives do.)

When a woman self aborts, the baby suffers too. Selfish. I HATE abortions, but if it is a last resort, make it merciful.

Sorry, but unless you were a virgin when you married, you don't know how many kids you made.

Bringing an unwanted kid makes all of us pay. Now, if we ever get to the place "where it takes a village" mentality like it was before civilization and capatilism, then maybe there won't be so many terminations.
