You know, that's fine Mojom. I mean it's a lot less arbitrary than the trimesters the Supreme Court invented, but at some point it comes down to a

If we did say "at the appearance of brain activity" and then assigned a universally agreed upon guideline like 6 weeks...it's still just a
If you believe then stopping brain activity is murder you are guaranteed to murder 50% of all abortions even at 5.9 weeks. Know what I'm
Yah, I totally see what you're saying. So don't set the line so close. In fact, if you're gonna have it at all, IMO it should be within the first
week or two at most. Simply because I believe we should always be in the Support of Life. I don't agree with Capital Punishment either.
Although, at the same time, something needs to be done about the method people are allowing themselves to become Baby Factories who throw their kids
in the trash, or starve them to death, or just don't use birth control in the first place. I mean, can you actually go to some bloated Skeleton
Child in a 3rd World Hell who is deceased, sick, starving, just a mess all around and who has 10 other siblings just like himself and tell them with a
straight face, 'Well, at least you were allowed to have a bit of the Gift of Life'?? I've also heard Crack Babies Detoxing at Birth are a pleasant
thing too. Or how about the recent 'fad' of mothers wigging out and beating their year or less old babies to death with rocks or whatever. Tell
them what a great Gift Life is and see if they'd agree with you.
But I realize practically all (not all) people are okay with the morning after pill within 72 hours and some people drop off then at varying
places up until 9 months.
But you know, the Pope ain't happy about RU486. In fact, condoms are wrong. Masturbation, sodomy...it's all a sin. Those are LIFE, as per the Pope.
So why even bother trying to please some of the people.
Yes, I know what you mean. People are f*ckin' nuts and have all kinds of theories. For the most part, as long as they leave me alone I don't care
what they do either. Some people like to shove steel rods through the Genitalia. Hey, great, knock yourselves out for all I care. It's the old
rule of 'You can Pick your Friends and You can Pick your Nose, but You can't Pick Your Friends Nose Unless they also want you to do so.'
Again, I'll have you remember that this was simply from a Legal, Political standpoint though. I fully support the Right for a Woman to do what she
wants with her own body and all, but I also support the Life of a Child if they're capable of having a healthy birth and a chance to live too. Our
Constitution feels the same way too, and if we base our Laws on the Constitution then that is what we should try and base Law Making Policy off of.
Here are some other reasons why I feel that Life does begin in the Womb for example.
Scans uncover secrets of the womb
A new type of ultrasound scan has produced vivid pictures of a 12 week-old fetus "walking" in the womb.
The images have shown:
From 12 weeks, unborn babies can stretch, kick and leap around the womb - well before the mother can feel movement
From 18 weeks, they can open their eyes although most doctors thought eyelids were fused until 26 weeks
From 26 weeks, they appear to exhibit a whole range of typical baby behavior and moods, including scratching, smiling, crying, hiccuping, and sucking.
Until recently it was thought that smiling did not start until six weeks after birth.
At 22 weeks gestation babies are capable of fine hand and finger movements. In a short space of time this baby scratches, rubs and pats his cheek
before doing the same to his nose.
Foetuses as young as 11 weeks have been seen with their thumbs in their mouths. This baby started out sucking his smallest toes and gradually moves on
to suck a bigger and better toe.
To be logically consistent we either need to be 100% sperm worshipers and outlaw EVERYTHING that interferes with life or just make it a
woman's choice (period)... no arbitrary rules, no stipulations...no BS.
That's my opinion anyway.
So if Brain activity starts at 6 weeks. 11 weeks we are sucking toes and at 12 stretch and move and so forth. Well, now abortions are done up till
the 12th week. Well, IMO, that's living, thinking, cognitive creature who's brain has been processing info about life for 6 weeks already and has
the Right to it's Own Life as We've established by the Laws of this Country. As long as it's capable of being a healthy child and all, so what
exactly makes it OK for the Woman at that point to choose to Kill off her own unborn child for reasons like just not wanting it???
Sure it's life still depends on the mothers, but I don't know if such a title of Mother is appropriate for someone that irresponsible in the first
place. She made the choice to conceive it and then let it grow to that point without taking responsibility, so now on top of that she is somehow
found as mentally capable of choosing the Mentally, Physically Aware Child that grows within her???
But, just like you, that is just my opinion and even that is still not at a solid conclusion in the matter. Personally, I along with my g/f (who may
as well be my wife for those who need such formalities) have chosen not to have kids. So, we take measures not to even allow the first stages to
I try not to bother too much with the morality of Killing with most people cause People see life different anyway. Just like the Pope. Sure he
won't let you masturbate but I doubt he has too much trouble killing all other forms of animal life. Even other primates who share 99%(??) the same
DNA as us. Obviously to him Sperm are even more important. Well, I think that's insane but hey, you people do what you want IMO. Just leave me and
mine alone and we'll all get along just fine.
