    As would I. It appears that the only connection at this point, sans verification, is giving this article a headline to lure us into a story that doesn't live up.

    Show me the connection of a log I tripped on 5 years ago and myself now. Show me a connection of that log I was going to trip on 5 years prior. Any part of the landscape when something happens is a factor.

    Why is this still even an issue? Abortion should be a decision between a woman and her doctor. It isn't any of my business, your business or anyone else's business.

    While I'm in radical disagreement with you on this, I could accept this line of thinking on one condition: If abortion is to be a decision between a woman and her doctor, I nor any other taxpayer should ever be required to pay for one. Let her pay for her own decisions.

    @Neo_NtheMatrix Good post. We are in disagreement but yours is a rational argument. I think if we were both legislators I might take you up on your proposal in the spirit of compromise.

    It is not just the woman who makes the decision. It is the woman, her family, her doctor and her friends, if she chooses -- the people who care about her life and well-being. The people who should not be involved in the decision are strangers who do not know her circumstances or have her best interests at heart.
    And, on a practical level, we have history to observe. Banning abortion does not stop abortions. It does force women in already bad circumstances to underground doctors who may or may not be qualified to leave them alive and undamaged after the procedure. You may not like that reality but reality, it is.

    HMMM......I have always wondered if we would (still) be debating this decision if MEN had the babies instead of women? I know I would want the right to choose if it was my body! Oh well.....I guess I will never know!

    Why would that make a difference? There would still be those who believe that it's a living human being and those who believe it's just a blob of tissue (albeit one that kicks and moves with music).

    Personally I really don't care. You try to get the religous freaks and the liberals to find some common ground with the morning after pill and both sides act like you just suggested that we Nuke 20 states. I'm done with it. I don't care who wins. Both sides are pig headed, ignorant and immature. They don't care about abortion. They just want to bitch and fight.

    @jessejaymes I've never met anyone who is pro-choice who is against the morning after pill. It just doesn't answer all medical needs.

    @Zazziness then why won't you liberals "go to war for it" like you did with conventional abortion? Wake up in the morning, take a pill, be done with it in 99% of cases. This is not 40 years ago when we were buying 8 track tapes. there is no excuse for the profit in surgical abortion, for the money spent by women (partners) for surgical abortion and the removal of fetus when if the pro abortion crowd was as adamant about the morning after pill women could have a 5.00 pill and remove a speck of tissue invisible to the human eye. A fetus is not a human. An egg is not a fetus.

    The Federal Government's role in deciding a woman's productive and families ability to have or don't have a child is- or should be kept to a minimum. Anyone can have kids, having the courage to raise and bring up that child may or may not be a genuinely keen idea in the first place. Forcing a person to raise unwanted kid's will, well, be unwanted.....

    I hope & pray that abortion will be eradicated. Liberals keep pushing for gun control to protect people yet they want the killing of innocent babies legal. Adam Lanza and abortion are the same! Life begins at conception!

    My wife is a beautiful woman. She did not deny the world two beautiful productive children. Thank you honey for not being like some others. You helped to create a happy family. I love you for that!

    Except for the fact that it is in the womb unable to live on its own makes it a future potential baby not a baby.

    @Cheenoguy people have been convicted of double murder when the mother and unborn child has been killed, so what you're saying is it doesn't matter if the baby has a heartbeat, if the baby can't live outside of the womb then it's ok to abort it? My opinion is,it's legalized murder, and I'm so glad I don't have that on my conscience! That's just me !30-50 million babies have been aborted in 40 years!

    I just marked no. None of the three fit how I think about abortion. Yes, at that time the Supreme Court was overwhelmed by Watergate. This just shows that they weren't quite sure either. No one wanted a woman to die due to having illegal abortions in horrific settings. But legalizing all abortions was not the way to go. The law needed specific regulations attached so the option could not be abused as it is now. There are many women who have multiple abortions. That's using it as a method of birth control. There needed to be a limit on how many abortions a woman could get. Beyond that limit, there would have to be extenuating circumstances that would allow a woman to go past that limit. I believe a new law, doing away with the old one, should be enacted with strict regulations. In this day and age, a rape victem can be given the morning after pill at the ER after the rape. There are many forms of birth control, some that can be used together to further increase the odds of not getting pregnant. If a condom breaks, the morning after pill is easily obtained at the most 10 times cheaper than an abortion. I personally used birth control pills, condoms and c-film(a tiny square of film made of spermacide placed directly over the cervix). I know many woman that use these three together and it has never failed. Pro-choice women keep saying its their body and they have control of it. Using these three, the first two available for free at the health department and the third very inexpensive and can be bought at Walmart, Walgreens.... With these options you are taking control of your own body without having to make the decision of abortion.
    As for incestual rape, an abortion should be legal.
    If the health of the mother has been compromised, an abortion should be legal.
    A gray area exists for genetic diseases that would make the child suffer, but then again, those three forms of birthcontrol used together would eliminate this unless you were trying to get pregnant and then found out about the disease.
    If you are raped, go to the ER. They will give you the morning after pill. Plus that is the only way to get evidence that is needed to convict the rapist before he does this to another woman. They will also get you the councelling you need.
    If the condom breaks even if you used birthcontrol pills, get the morning after pill.
    Women, become the women of this century! There should be no reason for an unwanted pregnancy. We know how to avoid it!
