    We all have a right to life, even if you don't believe that rights come from the government the right to life is written into the constitution.

    If the purpose of government is to protect the rights of those who cannot defend themselves because no one is less capable of defending their rights than an unborn child. Rape is a horrific crime, we all know that, but it does not justify anyone taking away the rights of an innocent person.

    Nothing does. It's the mother's choice. The rapist doesn't get a say.

    Our priority should be to get the victim the proper contraception ASAP to prevent abortion and birth.
    Contraception is to stop her from getting pregnant, not to terminate the pregnancy.

    I don't really understand how one evil justifies another.

    Roe v. Wade.


    A woman does not need to justify anything to obtain an abortion. It is her body and she has absolute rights over her body.

    An embryo or a fetus is not a person.

    If you support life at this level you must then follow the Catholic church and make sure that the ovum each month is given the opportunity for life. Each month of fertility the potential for life exists just as it does when the egg is finally fertilized (see link quote below). Since life is important you must also provide medical care so life has the opportunity to thrive. After birth your responsibility does not end as life then requires other supports and life is the critical piece. All healthcare should be provided free if necessary and must be supplied regardless of age or sickness. Life must be taken care of for as long as the person lives. When you agree to all this, and support all life, we will take you seriously. If life matters so much to you put your money where your mouth is.

    An adult woman's rights trumps those of an embryo ESPECIALLY when its been implanted against her will.

    So a women should be forced to remember the worst thing that happen to her for the rest of her life? That is so barbaric and ridiculous and it tells women that only men know what they should do with their own body.
