Besides it seems abortion is a perfectly reasonable method of birth control.
In fact some people are outraged at the idea we would even question the ethics of abortion, after-all the child has no rights while in a mothers womb.
Madness and indefensible if you ask me, it's a sad world we live in

Yes... you're right Mister Moral, pro-choice are all cold heartless people... geez... very constructive.
Of course there is compassion... no-one on any side is saying "Yay! abortions for everyone!... let's go get the Sunday 2-4-1 deal!", it's just that there is also compassion for the mother's situation, and the merits and effects on both lives must be considered. It is always a difficult decision, and not taken as lightly as anti-abortionists would make it seem.
Unfortunately, for many less educated people (and there are a LOT of uneducated people)... it is an option for birth control... but you know, that's because of, well... lack of education!
So you want to make the uneducated into criminals by making something that they don't fully understand the factors and implications of, yet seems like a convenient solution, illegal? Seems smart... not.
Do you honestly believe women see abortion as a perfectly reasonable method of birth control? Like going to the dentist to ge their teeth cleaned?
For thousands of years abortion was(still is around the world) very dangerous for the woman. She could end up dead during the medical procedure, she could get her body maimed, and even if things turned out well, physically, many women would develop serious mental issues over what they went through.
Legally speaking, fetuses can only be aborted within a certain span of time.
What's madness and sadness is that men - the sex that can ejaculate inside a woman after 5-30 minutes of pumping away - the sex that has none of the obligations and responsabilities, meaning that dude can say bye bye to the woman he got pregnant and never see her again, like it happened to millions of women worldwide, do not have any RIGHT to take the high moral ground...
I actually agree that under certain circumstances abortion is justified.
However, the majority of abortions, based on the evidence are simply inconvenient to the mother.
A large contingent within the pro choice crowd actually argue that abortion should be on the table right up till 9 months. I simply can't understand that point of view. At 9 months to kill a child sickens me to the core hence my strong language.
I understand no all women who make the choice to have an abortion do it lightly without thinking it over deeply. I also sympathise with these women, but to make abortion a readily available option to young women is counter productive imho.
I didn't know we were legislating for historical purposes.
Incidentally, when is that point of sentience? Do you know for certain?
Well, that right there is why you are about to lose your precious Roe vs. Wade decision. Like it or not, men have rights too, and you can take that "go sit in the corner and shut up" attitude and shove it.
When you're in here crying about the reversal of your precious "reproductive rights," remember that it was THAT ATTITUDE that cost you what you claimed to cherish so much.
This country ain't your personal playground. Others get to speak up as well as Your HIghness.
We're legislating to make sure women can...
The problem is that conservative men, the segment of men who make these rules and laws with the aim to control women are deep-down, if not public about it, white Muslim men. Red pillers, incels, obese middle-aged men who like to call themselves average, wanting to call the shots and decide what women in North America are allowed to do. Probably lashing out because those same women don't want to have anything to do with them, sexually. ''Can't fook them? At least we can fook up their lives, tehehehee.''
About the time it becomes illegal to abort?
And what rights are those...
You know what I truly cherish and get so depressed about? That the men and women my parents showed me in their pictures and in their videos are gone. Men and women who were naturally slim, whereas now almost everyone in America is obese or overweight, which is a lesser form of obesity, and the rest are either balding already in their early 20s or into their early 30s, with many being ugly as hell.
I was forced to move away from my beloved United States of America to these European lands because there's almost no attractive women in the US, there's no peace of mind because almost every owns a friking gun, and because if you ain't Anglo-Saxon the cops might just shoot you because your ancestry makes your skin colour the same skin colour Antonio Banderas got.
Hence why I moved to here. Most women(and men) are naturally slim, the women are pretty and friendly and easy to talk to, the men aren't incel retards going on mass shootings because they can't get laid, and the President isn't an obese, ugly, bald, racist weirdo who bought every woman he's slept with, and doesn't know what he's doing.
Alabama's ban on abortion only applies to doctors, not to the mothers.
So how is self-administered abortion handled in these proposed laws? That's just overlooked? Sounds like a dangerous precedent, and incomplete legislation.
