    Im in a really ticked off mood today. First, i was hanging out at one my boards and there was some guy trying to justify an affair. He was whining that he hadnt had any attention for 8 years because his wife is seriously ill. and honestly that kinda pissed me off. Cause i mean his wife is seriously ill and he is too busy with his sex drive? holy crap stop being selfish. What ever happened to a mans word of honor to fulfill the covenants he made with his wife.

    Anyway that got my thinking how ungrateful people like that are. they dont know what they have. They have someone to love. I havent found my someone to love yet. Then it had me thinking of how there are girls aborting their children and dads abandoning their children and it just irritates me how ungrateful they are. Id give anything to have someone and have children.

    so that had me naturally alittle frustrated with ungrateful people and then i was reading another thread were some 19 year old was complaining how she hated condoms and just wanted to use BC without condoms. You know thats fine. I understand people are going to have sex. i may encourage people not to but you know what they do is what they do. but then she goes on about how 1% chance of pregnancy doesnt bother her because she is "pro choice" And that just set me off. You know. i can handle people being pro choice. but we arent talking pro choice here. We are talking about Pro abortion. Why cant they just admit it. Why do they have to hide behind the "pro choice" mantra when they are anything but pro choice when it comes to any other issue. it freakin ticks me off! If they are so freaking pro choice then lets overturn Roe v Wade and let the people actually decide their own laws on abortion state by state! Stop trying to prevent the people from choosing! Stop trying to pretend as if you had no choice. If you sleeping with a steady boyfriend of several years you have to face the consequences. you dont want kids, dont have sex. Grow up people. AGHH Ungrateful and lazy. Annoys me. But you guys get that now.

    I know you're having a bad day and all, but I gotta ask. Why can't it be overturn Roe vs Wade and let people actually decide on their own, period? If you want to choose to have an abortion you can, if you want to choose not to, you can. Why isn't that the essence of choice?

    He's saying make it an individual state decision, I'm saying make it an individual personal decision. With some restrictions of course.

    Which is what each state would decide. It has to be decided by the state if it would be legalized by that state or not. I'd imagine California and Mass types would say yes but Utah might say no.

    I wonder how liberal pro choicers must feel to know that if they hadnt killed off so many of their offspring that George Bush might not be President.

    It should be noted that in a study conducted by the Fuller Theological Seminary in 2004, the rate of abortions, which reached its lowest point under the Clinton Administration, has begun to increase. This despite the policies of the Bush aministrion in this arena.

    According to Jim Wallis of <a href=http://www.religioustolerance.org/abo_fact1.htm><i>Sojourner's Magazine</i></a>,

    <blockquote>We have seen once again in this campaign the issue of abortion used as a partisan wedge rather than having a serious discussion on how to act to reduce the number of abortions. If we are to be truly pro-life, we must focus on real people and the conditions that lead women to seek abortions. Jobs, healthcare, and a living income must be part of a pro-life agenda.</blockquote>

    Of the several reasons for elective abortions, lack of adequate finances was the leading reason for terminating a pregnancy. Others include being unready to accept the responsibility of having a child; an unplanned pregnancy would adversely affect a woman's career and life choices and, a woman has already had all of the children she wishes to have. All valid and rational choices for terminating an unplanned pregnancy.

    And there are also issues facing women and families who are on welfare. Since many states have "family caps", women who are faced with an unplanned pregnancy is faced with the choice of carrying the pregnancy to term and having her standard of living compromised even further than it already is, or having an elective abortion. Such are the unintended consequences of goverment policy.

    Among the reasons for unplanned pregnancy are the inproper use or, failure to use contraception. (<b>1.</b>) This could be much alleviated by adequate sex-education programs in our schools which present valid, up to date and medically sound information.

    While I do not oppose abortion, I would rather there be fewer of them. But until we stop using abortion as a political wedge issue and start addressing the real issues leading to abortion, as outlined by Jim Wallis, the problem will not be addressed in any meaningful way. And overturning 'Roe v. Wade' would result in a slew of unintended consequences which would affect the choices of every American regarding marital privacy, contraception use, medical privacy, unwanted medical treatment, the right to marry and much, much more.(<b>2.</b>) Abortions should be safe, legal and rare. But until they become the exception, they must remain safe and legal.

    You know, I can't imagine why there would be more abortions in a growing population. Can anyone else?

    Nor can I imagine why after 8 years of Clinton as an example to the youth of American why there would be more abortions. Seriously, can anyone else understand why the generation who grew up with Clinton would possibly be having abortions now that they are all grown up? I mean didn't Clinton offer the best example possible?

    Avatar, heaven forbid that anyone should voice an opinion that you disagree with. Reading some of your posts, I occasionally wonder if your mother didn't change her mind in the middle.
