Quote# 15352

[The Hyde Amendment excludes abortion from the comprehensive health care services provided to low-income people by the federal government through Medicaid.]

To be honest I actually support the Hyde Amendment because women need to take responsibility for their own bodies and shouldn't ask the government for assistance in that regard. Plus it proves that many pro-choicers are blatantly hypocritical

Well, if we taught our children about contraception instead of 'sex is bad, horrible, and will mess up your life until you're married and then its wonderful' we might not need so many abortions. Ever think about that?

Ever think?

I didn't think so.

I... but... it's medical care!!!! Under that logic, no one should ever get comprehensive health care service, ever!

I read more of this thread. She never adequately explains how pro-choicers are \"hypocritical,\" but proudly declares that she has several times.

So Jessica is for back-alley abortions?

Blatantly hypocritical for refusing to discriminate between rich and poor! Wow, how's that work exactly?

I hope you take responsibility for your own body and don't ask for any assistance next time you need your wisdom teeth out or any other surgeries. Nothing like a bit of DIY at home to make America great once again.

And we all know that nobody would get an illegal abortion if they were denied it at the hospital, right?

Dipshit, The War On Abortion is just as fruitless as the War On Drugs; just because it's legal or limited to those who can afford it is not going to stop it from happening. But I'm sure you'd be glad to see thousands of women dying from infections and complications right? After all, they're just wanton sluts, right? You sick bitch.

The death penalty proves most pro-lifers are hypocrites as well.

Listen, make up your mind, is their bodies(mothers) or theirs(children)?. Besides, following your logic, let´s take off hospitals and social assistanship. Everybody should take responsibility of their own bodies.

Pulling yourself up by the bootstraps can be hard when you're pregnant...

Tell me, how does one have responsibility when one has no options and thus no ability to make choices?

So we can stop giving taxpayer money to all those faith based programs now?
Because people need to take responsibility for their own lives?

We can't stop? That is blatantly hypocritical.

I understand the first part of the comment, but that second part is a total mystery. How does the Hyde Amendment prove pro-choicers are hypocrites? Am I missing something? Hyde himself is pro-life...and inserted that rider as a means of denying abortion to the poor and minorities.

And if you deny the poor the ability to control their reproduction, history pretty clearly shows that what you get is a whole lot more poor people in the next generation.

Sandman:

What he means is pro choicers say women not the government should control their own body, but when they get pregnent (apparently unable to control their own body) they want the government to come in and fix things.

So Jessica actually is pro-choice, but only for those people who can afford abortions without state assistance. She must really love the poor, wanting them to multiply so much more than everyone else.

Maybe it's just me, but I think there's a difference between:
___(1) having the power to make a choice;
___(2) wanting support to carry out that choice.

I'm thinking not just compatible, but orthogonal concepts.

So are you going to adopt all the children produced by this amendment? Are you going to pay for physical and mental therapy for those unfortunate enough to be born with defects? Are you going to help pay for the funerals of mothers who die in childbirth when an abortion could have prevented them? Are you going to help 11-year-old girls (those who survive the pregnancy) learn to be mothers before they learn to be adults? You are the one not taking responsibility for your position.

Don't poor people pay taxes too? Why shouldn't they get assistance when such assistance would help prevent them from needing government assistence with children? Birth control is cheaper than diapers.
