    Just curious, do you consider yourself pro life or pro choice? I have always considered myself pro choice (not pro abortion), but I don't think it should drag on past the first trimester either. There are a lot of seemingly pro life people who agree to that 12 week cutoff. I just don't understand why this is such a heated debate when 12 weeks has sort of always been the compromise and most people are good with that.

    I am in the pro life camp. But considering there are others that are not I feel under these circumstances 12 weeks would be a liveable compromise.

    If given your druthers, would you prohibit oral contraception?

    A compromise that most reasonable people on either side would agree to. It’s only the people on the fringe who can’t accept it.

    There you go talking out your ass. Stick to things you know like soccer and ball sacks. You sound like my know it all 23 year old son. Dont worry, life will teach you, and you will learn or suffer and stay a democrat.

    Nope, not worth the trouble to deal with a primal donna intelectual that has just come into her powers.

    Small tits, her torso looks like she had a lung transplant, and a garden hose belly button. I imagine I would like her "fat" friend better.

    It is amazing, isn’t it?

    “I know what you and your family and friends were thinking and talking about during one of the most tumultuous times in US history; the civil rights movement was in full swing, the Vietnam War protests, war on tv, and a landmark SC decision allowing abortion all there right in front of you but I know better about all that than you, because I read about it. I know you were actually there and someone would have to be in a coma not to see and hear all the things going on around him, even at the dinner table, but I read it and you only lived it, so I know better than you what happened then”

    The hubris has no end. This will come full circle when someone is born ten years from now and 30 years from now tells him with absolute conviction what he was thinking about today, because he read about it somewhere.

    It reminds me of when I lived in Europe and had Yurps who had at most, spent a week’s vacation in San Francisco or Disney World think they could tell me about America.

    Yes! This actually happened! More than once or twice.

    Yet the same astonishingly arrogant jackasses would try to talk about America and within 30 seconds some bit of ignorance would flow out of their mouths that any American would immediately know was wrong.

    Or kind of like the couple of Georgia fans who think they can tell Gators about the UF program.....even while constantly spewing stuff that every Gator immediately knows is wrong.

    The arrogance of some people is simply breathtaking.

    Its not like one has to live in a time period to be informed about it, but I'm suspect of anyone on here doing any scholarly research into the political climate of the 1970's.

    It's not merely that, someone was telling me that I was mistaken about my own observations based on something he read years after the fact. That's pretty arrogant.

    Except he's right. Abortion rights was always a tool to agitate the the right - a get out the vote issue for the republicans. After the election nothing was ever contemplated regarding abortion rights - except at the state level.

    That may be true but that doesn't mean people were not vehemently opposed to the SC ruling on RvW when it was handed down. What was your family's reaction to it? It was a tumultuous time - Vietnam, protests, civil rights movement, abortion, going off the gold standard... Plenty of things to talk about or even overhear people who didn't think you were listening.

    What did your family have to say about RvW? I take it you were there and old enough to have some understanding of what was being discussed, correct?

    Yes - my family was generally against abortion but against backstreet abortions much much more. The reality of dealing with unwanted pregnancy should be left up to the woman and her doctors.

    Different strokes I guess. I think she is fine as hell.

    Also it is pre-madonna not primal donna.

    Abortions may indeed be a get out the vote matter for republicans/the right but it an incendiary issue for democrats/the Left as evidenced by their reaction to any curtailment of abortion rights, even if a majority of Americans don't support second & third trimester abortions.

    There are plenty of loons on the Left regarding the abortion issue.

    As a member of neither party I have always aligned more with Republicans on issues like this and the very fact that when the Dems stir up the vote they are all but saying to their followers, "Hey we realize you are too stupid to understand the issues and cannot openly discuss an issue but here are some boobs and please vote the way we tell you.

    He’s not right. It wasn’t a plot to court Evangelicals in the 1980s. Roe became the law of the land in 73 and there was push back as Reagan is coming into the forefront in the late 70s early 80s. Evangelicals weren’t even a closely watched voting block until the Clinton era. You and he are regurgitating revisionist group think. The Dems have become a Godless party. The natural outcome is what we have today with people of faith no longer identifying with them.

    Moral Majority was founded in 1979 by Jerry Falwell. It was a political organization not religious.

    My problem with this is it is operating under the assumption the unborn child is not a human being with human rights. Why is it the woman's decision whether her baby lives or dies? Should not the state have a say in that?

    Oh there is room for compromise. I see no issue with the rape incest loss of life thing. But abortion in place of contraception needs to stop imo. Inconvenience being the driving issue; giving the green light to suck the brains out of an unborn baby? Come on.

    I say this knowing its pretty much exclusively democrats having abortions. But I don't know how one can live with themself sanctioning the extinguishment of so many human lives

    Plenty of people on the right who consider themselves "moral" or have some religious scruples of one description or another never wanted Jerry Falwell to represent their views on anything, including Jesus.

    No, I believe in liberty and freedom from governmental interference in my life. Are there exceptions? Of course, but I'm not willing to accept your definition as to when life begins.

    I contend one does not have to be religous to be moral. Abortion is a moral issue, people should leave religion out of it. If its got a head, nose, feet, eyes etc. By gog that is a human being and no one should be sucking its brains out then tossing it in the trash

    If that's the mental gymnastics you need to convince yourself.

    But what i mean was, you said the state has no business. Who speaks for the dead if not the state? Do you live in a wild land with no police?

    That’s why I made the distinction between moral and religious scruples. Plenty of agnostics or atheists have a moral compass and plenty object to abortion for purely religious reasons.

    I can't believe people don't know who she is.............oh, and you guys should watch this version of the video


    The difference is that those countries don't teach abstinence only with respect to sexual education.

    Alabama Code Title 16. Education § 16-40A-2

    (a) Any program or curriculum in the public schools in Alabama that includes sex education or the human reproductive process shall, as a minimum, include and emphasize the following:

    (1) Abstinence from sexual intercourse is the only completely effective protection against unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) when transmitted sexually.

    (2) Abstinence from sexual intercourse outside of lawful marriage is the expected social standard for unmarried school-age persons.

    Yes, if people have too many abortions it will limit the amount of children the Catholic church can molest.

    Logic is sound.
