The only laws in question here are regulating women's bodies. Last time I checked, Roe v Wade wasn't a law, it was legal ruling from the Supreme Court defining a part of the Constitution as it applied to the argument in question. But you're probably to dumb to understand that.

I'm pro-choice and I certainly support the rights for women to have abortions.
5/2/2007 1:33:08 AM
In what bizzaro alternate universe do pro choice folks claim not to be for abortions?
5/2/2007 2:04:29 AM
I think that some idiot needs to look up the word \"choice\"! It means the \"right to choose\". Pro-choice means that one gets to choooose whether to have an abortion or not. Your way no one gets to choose.

What about the right of innocent exclamation points to not be abused by morons like you?
Won't someone think of the punctuation?
5/2/2007 2:13:35 AM
\"Keep your laws off the unborn children!!!\"
Wait, what? You're pro-choice too?
Laws are by definition restrictive. You can't just have a law that says \"sure, go ahead and have abortions\". Law does not work that way >.<

Saying that pro-choicers want women to have abortions is like saying pro-gun advocates want people to shoot each other. Both positions simply want the legal option to be available if the need arises.

Giving an embryo rights is akin to giving a severed finger rights. Both are unmistakably \"human,\" but as you can see, being \"human\" isn't enough to have rights--one must BE (that's the operative word) a human BEING.

They're unborn. A fetus has no rights. In order to have rights in this country, you have to be a natural born citizen or legally immigrate.
ETA: I just realized that there's a double meaning in that last bit. No pun intended. :)

Guess what the other choice is: not abortion!
5/2/2007 2:28:05 AM
I don't want people to have abortions, an abortion is the last resort when all other birth control measures have failed. I'd rather we had a perfect method for women to control their fertility so that they never got pregnant unless they wanted to, but as long as birth control methods are fallible there will be unwanted pregnancies, and abortion should be an option in those last resort situations.
A clump of cells with no nervous system is not a human and doesn't have human rights.

I'm pro-choice, and I'll say that I'm not pro-abortion. I don't like abortion, and I think in a perfect world it wouldn't exist, but this is definitely not a perfect world and sometimes it's the lesser of two evils. So yes, the choice should be available, and is something that should be left entirely up to the woman, her partner, and her doctors, without politicians sticking their meddling noses into her private business.

Unborn clumps of tissue don't have rights.
5/2/2007 5:13:08 AM
\"Unborn children\" is an oxymoron.

Besides being wrong on what constitutes a 'child', let me say this. I'm not gay, I don't have abortions, I don't gamble, I don't do a lot of shit that other folk do. That doesn't mean I don't want the option, or that I think others who find these topics coming up in their lives shouldn't. The great thing about the freedom to do something is that you also have the freedom not to.
Hope that helps.

It would be as such, were it not because a very high proportion of abortions happen in supposedly anti-abortion states. Which means that many people who are pro-life abort, maybe saying that, in this case, they had right to do it, and that many pro-choice people didn´t do it when faced with the problem. If people were pro-abortion, they would outlaw contraconceptives and make women pregnant all the time in order to abort, in the first place.

They are not members of society and therefore have none.

If you think that anybody besides a mass murderer honestly looks forward to abortion, then you are more fucked in the head than you could possibly realize. I don't know anybody who eagerly awaits abortion; for one thing, as I understand it, it is neither a pretty nor a pleasant prospect in the slightest. Some things must be done, however, no matter how vile we find them, especially when the life of an already established human being (the mother) is in danger or when the mother has become pregnant against her will.
5/2/2007 10:28:50 AM
But it's ok for Lifers like you to be Pro-Murder?
If you believe abortion is murder, why add to the problem?
5/2/2007 10:40:14 AM
If I had a dime for everytime a lifer completely twists the meaning of \"pro-choice\"....

When it can survive outside the womb without medical intervention, it can have rights.
5/2/2007 1:44:05 PM
Please do not project your own slobbering zealotry upon other people, Ratigan.
As a man, I have no right to interfere in any woman's choice to terminate or not, except if I were personally involved in the pregnancy.
Many factors are considered when a woman chooses whether or not to terminate. A fundie rant is not a legitimate factor for most people.
I'm expecting to read your name in the news in association with some sort of slaughter.

Jezebel's Evil Sister
Under the U.S. Constitution, rights apply only to actual people, i.e., those who were actually born - and that's much more expansive than the bible, which defines human life as beginning ONE MONTH AFTER BIRTH.

I'm certainly pro-abortion for any woman you somehow manage to knock up. Not that I think you'll ever figure out where you're supposed to put your dick.
