|Oh No.. Here she goes again....|
I guess I need to back up and explain where this is coming from... There is a big controversy going on, Thanks to the sisters with the blog "Speak Now: Girl Scouts" about Girl Scouts being liberal and supporting Planned Parenthood... They are, that's a given. You can disagree with me all you want... but I'm a 23 year Girl Scout. So .. I know, been there, seen it, experienced it. So lets skip over that part, K?
That discussion has brought about MEW of "The Salon" commenters saying that you MUST be pro-Choice or else you are anti-woman. That women MUST be allowed to use birth control/have abortions or because other wise they can't enjoy sex. So are you saying that Prolifers want women to be little baby factories... Umm.. Wha? Seriously people how did we go from Girl Scouts and PP to women are only good for popping out babies?? I don't use chemical Birth control and have never had an abortion.. My hubby sure isn't the only one having fun. That's just one of those things that irks me...
If your Pro-life you must hate women... It's like the whole if your a republican you must be racist. If that's the only thing you got.. I'm no longer listening. You might as well be cussing at me, and it really lowers my view of your intellect.
Ok.. got off subject...

How is it ok to snuff out a life just because you don't care? How is it any different from after they take their first breath? How is it any different from my that mother on trial from killing her little girl because she was "inconvenient"?
Of the women I know (and not all of them are conservative pro-lifers) who have had abortions, all of them regret it on some level. All of them wish they hadn't. Abortion kinna falls into the same idea as choosing not to breastfeed to me. It is interrupting a natural process, which causes problems, but that is a whole other topic.
The other thing I don't get is at what point do they "become a human being"? Going from a scientific level.. The difference between and adult and an embryo is age. They have all the genetic make up of an adult. They are human, what else would they be?
Some, like my son, is an issue of "viabilty" which makes it an issue of medical skill... but how is that any different from someone on insulin or with a pace maker? How about you? Do you grow all your own food? Do you never shop? Then don't you require others to help you survive?
Or maybe it is environment... So if you took me and moved me to Alaska I would have a hard time surviving.. Seriously I NEED 90 degree weather! Would that make me less human? You have to admit that an embryo is perfectly suited to their environment.
And then have the whole sick baby thing.. we already know how I feel about sick babies...
What makes a baby who-happens-to-have-a-genetic-disorder-of-some-sort's life less valuable than a child who doesn't? Remember I spent time in a NICU... There is a term in our NICU called a "Hospital Baby".. that is a baby who's mother (usually a druggie of some sort) comes, delivers the baby and leaves. Leaving her child, never to return. Many of those children are perfectly healthy. So which baby should be allowed to live? Mine who is LOVED and happens to have a MAJOR heart condition and had a 0% survival rate (HA!) or the healthy child? BTW the healthy babies get adopted pretty quickly, from what I understand. So you surely can't call either child "unwanted."
I really honestly just don't get it. Can you explain it to me?
In this discussion that may ensue... please remember my rules. Disagreement is welcome, atacking one another is not :) k thx!
