I didn't make that argument, apparently you thought I did. My argument was that pregnancy following rape was vanishingly rare, far less than 1%, and that the case of rape shouldn't control the entire discussion. It's not the tail wagging the dog, it's a flea on the tail wagging the dog.
Ah yes, the age old argument of "rape doesn't happen that often so we should just ignore it in the abortion debate".
A very strange position indeed. If you believe there is no human life in the mother, then there is no reason(except for the possibilities of psychological and physical harm) for her to avoid an abortion.
. . . you are truly twisted in the head if you think it's justified to force a woman to go through with pregnancy after she had been raped . . .
I agree to the extent that demonizing any person is a mistake, and for me, a sin. May people disagree with her decision? Of course, people disagree with other people's decisions all the time.
It's also disgusting that people will think to demonize the women in these situations who end up choosing abortions, calling them irresponsible.
Do I, personally? I don't know. That possibility seems unlikely enough that I haven't explored it thoroughly. "What do our lawmakers want?" may be a better question.
Do you want to force and imprison raped and molested woman, children, for choosing abortion?
I didn't make that argument
But what if you believe that there is a human life in the mother as a result of rape? Surely, if anyone in the world is innocent of anything, it is the child in the womb. Your grounds for killing that child then?
Do I, personally? I don't know.

Who exactly gave women the right to kill babies? They say it is their right, who gave them that right? At least a million couples a year try to adopt a baby in America, At least a million babies a year are murdered by abortion. The excuse is always "well i'm afraid i might get attached to the baby once it's born". Really? That is no excuse for murder. How many Einsteins have been aborted? They have devices now that they can put under your skin to keep you from getting pregnant. Planned Parenthood should just give those away to every teen. Problem solved. But no, we must murder babies while in the same breath say "we must take away all guns to protect the children" GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

So they can have a choice as to commit murder
Oh of course not, I don't think women should be allowed to kill and murder people. I am terribly sorry if I confused you and made it sound as if I supported murder because I certainly I don't! I do support the woman's right and choice to have an abortion, which is not murder. So sorry for confusing you there
Gotta love that "choice"
Oh I love it alright. I love it because it just kills people like you to know that women have choices. You personally believe that the minute a women is pregnant, her rights ceases and she should then be controlled like some doll, but fortunately we've long moved on from that era. Thanks as well to technology it's getting easier for women to make those choices
I am not of the opinion that a human begins at conception for me that comes later after it has developed of course I know some believe otherwise
