    Do you think a middle class 20 year old woman should be able to get an abortion because the rubber broke or do you want the law to say " sorry you have to have it"

    One aspect of liberal ideology that comes into play here is the long-held liberal belief in social justice and defending the person without power from abuses arising from those with power. In cases of pregnancy, the liberal response would be to protect a women's right to determine whether or not she wanted to have children, and so rape, incest and other abuses should not result in her being required to carry the child.

    By the same token, if a women chose her sex partner willingly and became pregnant, the very same consideration should be applied to the developing fetus, because in this case, the women has all the power in the relationship rather than the fetus. By taking away the baby's right to choose, it is the mother who is acting against social justice.

    In a Republicans mind the child shouldn't be punished for what the rapist/father did.

    If a man with children raped a woman would it be OK to find his kids and kill them.

    Never mind that she has to carry and birth them. It's either that or murder an innocent child.

    And even an innocent incest baby has the right to live. God made it happen.

    If it were just a woman's life we were talking about, I might agree. But, as it stands someone needs to think about the other life involved.

    It's funny how adoption is never an option for these people. Always some reason it won't work. Never their fault. Rape is horrible yes and a women carrying the reminder for months would hurt but I'm sure a women somewhere would want the child. I wonder with all the statistics people rattle off have they really researched how many women getting abortions checked into adoption first?

    Why do you think it's "never an option"?

    Pregnancy is the most life changing moment for a woman. It can mean dropping out of school, it can mean losing a job, it also carries significant health risks. I don't know why you would think women don't consider all possibilities - adoption, keeping the child, abortion. It is not a decision taken lightly.

    And to compound that with rape is horrific.

    I don't think in today's society school is a problem. And why would a women become unemployed? Of course rape is horrific. take it from someone who knows. I did become pregnant and had to make some really hard choices. I lost the child so the decision was made. I just don't hear people talk about adoption as an option much.

    I'm pro-freedom. If I want to inject heroin into my eyeball it's MY business. not some socialist Nazi with a badge. I'm pro life but until that baby is born and gets to breathe our shitty air and get bombarded with Nazi vacunas, its the womans choice to finalize the pregnancy or not. Thats HER choice. Freedom....yas fuckin morons.You have no clue as to what freedom is when living in that Satanic Hellhole waving your Bangladeshian made flags and following lines and paying for everyone elses American created enemies..AKA war. De FUNDING FreeDUMB.
    April 15. Make sure your taxes are done ! Better not lie on the form ! ( politicos call it mis-spoke----YOU can't say that). What about those used underwear you sold on ebay ? You could face serious fines and / or jail time !

    I"m all for abortions, but more for sterilization. There's already 10x too many people in the world. But I'll trade having abortions be illegal in order to stop the other leftist bs.
