Scott Roeder was convicted today in Kansas of aborting the life of Dr. Tiller, an abortionist who would not stop. It appears that Scott became what he hated.
I happen to be Pro Choice and my choice happens to be Life. I will not stop you from choosing death but I will try & convince you otherwise.
Forget the religious discourse. Forget the this Dr. says this, this Dr. says that.
On the form for Life insurance & for Health insurance besides "do you smoke" is "have you had an abortion". They don't ask if you have had a miscarriage because that is the body taking an action. They put all your answers in a table & get an answer. They can void your insurance for giving false answers.
You pay extra for insurance if you smoke or have had an abortion because those actions cause harm to the body in a calculable way. They charge a higher premium and have never been stopped by anyone for charging this higher premium. They can prove it from their tables.

Wow...I suppose it should be no surprise reading the callousness of people who believe abortion is okay, considering the nature of the action. However, I would expect people to at least TRY to pretend we are not talking about killing BABIES here in order to placate their conscience. People always say pro-lifers have no problem with the death penalty. On the flip side pro-choicers want to let even the worst of criminals live out the rest of their lives in comfort yet have no problem butchering an innocent life while still in their mother's womb. Which of these two groups deserves our protection?
The pro-choice crowd in my view is no different than the crowd screaming Barabbas!! as Christ was led away for crucifixion....

Here is your pro choice, choose not to get bloody pregnant
There is only 2 instances where I think abortion should be allowed 1: risk to the parents life and 2: rape(and it still pains me that the child should suffer).
The whole "oh its not really a baby until blah blah blah" argument just doesn't cut it with me, we were all fetuses once and look at us now!!
These holier than thou attitudes crack me up. The "god" of the bible repeatedly took innocent lives. Women, children, babies,and those in the womb. It wasn't a big deal to him! He made to apologies for it either. Until you have walked in the shoes of a woman who has made a decision to abort, you have no right to judge.

My attitude is one of no abortion after six weeks, two months maximum. Anyone choosing abortion as late term as 6 months, for example, should be forced to spend five minutes studying the child they murdered
If all men used condoms or (for those unprepared to support their children) had a vasectomy, there would be far less abortions for them to protest about. Never mind men claiming contraception is the woman's responsibility --- just wear the condom or have a vasectomy and stop trying to pass the buck
Reminder for men: a few years ago a prostitute came before the court. She'd given birth to almost a dozen drug-addicted babies. Their fathers were her customers
Coinciding with that item of news was another, concerning babies and children with disabilities and other problems who were being kept in cages by the people paid to care for them
So out there are family men who go home at night and help their legitimate offspring with their homework, whilst in a cage or cowering in a filthy corner somewhere are their illegitimate children, products of three minutes in an alley with a drug-addict prostitute
Children born to prostitutes don't just conveniently die and blow away. Nor do they enjoy pleasant lives. Many drift into prostitution themselves. Almost certainly, legitimate sons unknowingly have sex with their half-sisters on occasion and very possibly more unwanted children result
Any man who's had unprotected sex with ANYone has no right to an opinion about abortion
