It has everything to do with the discussion, after all we are talking about life. Why I posted those pics is because when people talk about discussions as these usually they don't think about people has human beings, if I was to draw stick people and then post real pics most people would identify when the real picture then the stick people, how can you have emotion towards a stick person? Take both away and how can you think about life without seeing it... Anyway, it does make it more interesting when you add pictures...
And someone said that babies are parasites on the mother, which is bs...
Where would you be if your mother terminated you??
So, it has everything to do with the topic, I don't know what thread you think your in, but maybe you should read the headline again... Also, why do you like stirring # up? You always seem to want to get a rise out of people...

I dont understand the so called "pro-choice" movement never have never will. Aside from the fact that I think its misnamed, (afterall the child being killed doesnt get a choice) I just cant accept that the murder of an unborn infant is not morally reprehensble. But this thread isn't about me or my views its about you and yours (yes I'm talking to YOU) so tell me How do you justify the so called "pro-choice" stance?

THE CHILD DOSN'T HAVE A CHOICE?!? OH AND WAS THE CHILD ASKED IF IT WANTED TO BE BORN! I THINK NOT.
This is the problem we can't kill 'coz we intrude upons someones autonomy, so by the same reasoning we can't create life as this ALSO INTRUDES UPON SOMEONES AUTONOMY. Forget the woman whos body it is and YOU are taking desisions for!
This is all about autonomy, and any other opinion other that the right to choose is INTRUDING ON SOMEONE ELSES AUTONOMY!
I know its hard for people who subscribe to religion to know what autonomy is as they were relieved of it some time ago.

earthtone, I respect your opinion myself and largely agree with your stance. I hate to see any law get enacted because people inveribaly lose everytime a politician does anything. Still, someone has to seek some middle ground on this. I think we can all agree that some measure of protection for the innocent, unborn or not is in order. Granted, we as a society, at this point, should be cognitive of the worth of life, especially of the children. If we would all realize that with the gift of life come responsibilities as well, I think we'd see this as a non-issue.
