There is only one true god... but that is a different thread. I was actually being sarcastic, which isn't good but it feels good. America (myself included) better get their # together morally real soon because when the # hits the fan manners and decorum go out the window.

75% of abortions are for women at or below the poverty line. If the numbers show that more women of color have abortions then this shows that lack of medical care and birth control when you are poor influences higher pregnancy rates. More pregnancies equals more abortions when people are having trouble taking care of their families on minimum wage. Abortion does not mean you don't love your children it means you can't support and take care of more than what you have.
I wonder how many people who are upset about abortion also have no access to birth control or medical care. How many colored children have you adopted? What are you doing about free school lunches and breakfasts? How are you helping economically disadvantaged families?

Why do planned parenthood think they have any stake in this discussion whatsoever? They need to mind their business and stick to pointing to bowls of condoms.
It's almost as though they're becoming a political organization.
The difference between the animal and the plant involves sentience. That is, nonhumans—or at least the ones we routinely exploit—are clearly conscious of sense perceptions. Sentient beings have minds; they have preferences, desires, or wants. This is not to say that animal minds are like human minds.
