I know this is like beating a dead horse, but I am still curious as to how you came to your conclusion about when life begins. When the sperm enters the egg, cell growth starts immediately. If the process is successful and uninterupted you get a baby.
From the merging of one egg and one sperm you get one cell, that then turns into two cells and then four and and so on and so on and if allowed to grow, grows into a baby. If the cells are alive and growing properly how can they not be considered life? I do not understand your logic....

umm no take your forced sterilization back to teh 1920s where they belong not in modern times screw this forced morality crap and trying to force people to have medical procedures thats just pure lunacy i hope you never get into any form of power or political clout or we are screwed
The way I see it is if ladies want to fulfill their dreams without having to deal with the burden of raising a child, then don't get laid without making sure you're either on birth control or the guy is wearing a condom.
How about if we insist that every young man get a reverseable vasectomy at puberty?

I applaud Obama for coming out, especially during an election cycle, to preserve the "right to choose" of women! OP, I couldn't disagree with you more. No one is trying to take away your right to give birth.
OP, you are looking at the world through rosey colored glasses. Not all women will make good moms, or will become better people for having given birth.

All those saying use birth control seem to forget that it is not always effective.
When it fails for your 16 year old daughter you might sing a different tune.

The government has no business legislating this. It is and always has been between a woman and her doctor.
Kudos for having the courage to do the right thing Mr. President.

You are right, it is about individual rights. The argument is always the same and always will be the same because people can't agree if a baby in the womb is considered an individual. I see them as an individual, so when I hear the phrase "pro choice", I have to wince because the baby NEVER gets a choice.
That said though, you never know how you are going to feel and think until you are in a situation. I'm against abortion, but I'm also against the government making laws of a personal nature. Especially since the majority of them on either side are stodgy old men who will never come close to knowing what it is like to be pregnant, scared, alone.
