My Mother was a nurse from 1960 until 1986. During that time she described how woman came into the emergency rooms with coat hangers or knitting needles stuck in them, septic, bleeding and worse. She was a Christian woman who believed in life. But after what she saw and friends being raped she applauded when women were given a right to choose. She also saw that orderlies & interns were helping to kill & sterilize women Why does this battle rage on?

I can believe it. In one of the college courses I taught to a group 21 & under they told me they didn't believe the slavery Pandemic or the Holocaust had ever happened. Dee
That is taking it a bit too far. I'm surprised a parent allowed that. There are permanent mental & psycological repercussions after the procedure. It is never a scott free procedure emotionally. Dee

Sherry I believe the reference is to the fact that Medicaid will pay for an abortion. Which implies it was free. Ib You obviously have never been raped or closely involved with someone who has. It can take months for an individual to function. Dee
I don't understand why Politicians try to use it instead of truly working on real problems like debt, foreclosures, bank fraud, veteren's issues homelessness and hunger in this land of the free..... Dee
1st I can attest to using birth control in my marriage and getting pregnant. It isn't perfect. Yes over a 100,000 children of color available for adoption but women choose to go to China to get babies. Making a hard decsion is responsible. Dee
Perhaps, then one should make the choice to refrain from being sexually active.....holding out for the right one.....showing respect to self and the one who is to come into one's life. Being responsible for choice and actions.
We both know that you're correct. I've worked with young people for the last 20 years and they don't look at things the same way we were raised to. Thank you for your input. Dee
