The reason she should be forced to stay pregnant is that the unborn child is a human being, and the last time I checked, murder was frowned upon.
Unless the woman was raped, then her having sex was a consenual act, and one of the possible consequences is pregnancy. I suppose if you believe that
we should live in a consequence free lifestyle, where there are no negative repercussions to any decisions(or responsibilities to deal with) you could
justify the taking of an innocent life for the sake of convenience.
umm...ya see here's the problem....
one of the consequences of being pregnant, can be that the mother's health is put at risk! brought this up once before on this thread and no one
so you make this unborn child a person with rights....now what, you have these two doctors over here telling you there's a 80% chance that the women
will face some dire consequences if she tries to carry this pregnancy much longer....so, you have this situation where the courts, having to uphold
the constitution and protect the rights of both the mother and the child. and they can't do it! they are gonna have to take someone's rights
away!! and I bet you ten to one, at least some of the time, they will side with the baby's rights, and you are gonna have women being
bedridden....(are you gonna be willing to help supervise the three kids she already has while daddy goes to work?), handicapped....(there's a lady in
poland who was refused an abortion, she's blind now!!), or maybe even dead!
thank god that I can't have children anymore!! but if I could, under those circumstances, wouldn't matter if I was married or not, wouldn't matter
how financially able I was, and might not even matter if I wanted kids or not....i WOULD NOT HAVE THE SEX!!
which seems to be what I often encourage the women to do now, before some of these laws actually make it through the supreme court. they are treated
the women's health as an afterthought with these laws, ahh...we'll take care of that when the situation arises, well, by the time the situation
arises, and they get around to it, well.....you will have denied some women a lifesaving medical procedure that would have saved her life! possibly
orphaned a few kids in the process!
I think it's better that the women stand in force, refuse the sex, and well, let the guys be ticked off for awhile...then we can see what they decide
to do, let the abortion issue alone, or well....start writing laws again that enforce the male rulership...
but as far as I can see, the people writing these laws don't seem to care about the health and wellbeing of the mother. this is why the supreme
court keeps shooting them down. And, society has no right to expect anyone to sacrifice their life for another person.....and sacrifice isn't a
sacrifice if it's forced onto someone....
