Thank you very much for your long and helpful answer. I was looking for some quotes for a hub, and you are by far the best respondent. (isn't it funny how the others have no proof?)
Thanks, the topic is often a religious thing. Strange thing is the church is against contraception and against abortion too. This means you've got to be a virgin till you marry! This does not add up in 2014. Good sexual education is the key I think.
Thanks for this Peter. Unfortunately, those most against it (Churches etc..not people) are usually against sex education, unless its abstinence, as well. Which just increases the problem as kids will try what they are told not to!.
So if a 15 year old girl is gang banged and raped and because of that she got pregnant, that's ok with you ? She should not have the right to say; no, I do not want the child ?
I guess you're against anti conception as well? No condom, no pill?
Absolutely not! I am all for birth control if the person can be "responsible" enough to use it. Why kill a child for an "oops" mistake?
As I Said JThomp , there are many reasons woman become pregnant , not all are oops mistake. Aime gave a very sensible answer. I think women should have a choice. They are the ones who often have to change there life radically.
That's a good point, too - life is nothing like it was before. I struggle with it immensely sometimes. For someone who never "came around" I could see the change being downright depressing for all involved.
Then they should keep their legs shut if they are not ready to raise a child!!
Not terribly realistic. What about people who never want a child? They should just never have sex?
Murder for pleasure. Sounds like a great idea to me. There are several methods to keep from getting pregnant. Oh but excuse me. We are in the times now when marriage is not thought of in the same category. Marry, have baby. The right way!
Are you a vegetarian JThomp ? You should be. A cow has more brain cells then an embryo. That's what I call murder.
There are. But many women get pregnant while using BC.
And if a girl is raped, since she couldn't fight off the attacker, she should keep the embryo, even if it threatens her life (health issues, ovarian cancer, maybe she was stabbed by the rapist)?
That is what it sounds like you are saying.
I find it disturbing that this day and age that people scream and yell about the terrible actions by people like isis, alqaeda and drone bombing of civilians by the US gov; yet they have no problem murdering babies. This is downright despicable.
And I find it disturbing that people still want to dictate a woman's right to make decisions about her own body.
It is not your baby unless you want to be its mother!
Excuse me, but who is talking about murdering babies?!! A baby is a human being born. Abortus is not killing a baby when it is born and takes its first breath of air....
I must disagree.
I think you should look up the definition of the word "baby" in the dictionary.
I think you need to look up murder in the dictionary.
the killing of human being. And an embryo is not a full grown human being.
So, you are saying it is okay to murder a child at 20-26 weeks?
You are using deliberately the wrong vocabulary. A child of 20-26 weeks doesn't exist.
Apparently you are ignorant to the facts if you believe what I said is false. A newborn baby is between 37 to 41 weeks. A child can be murdered at 24 weeks.
To me a baby is a human being born, a baby is not called a baby when it's still in the womb. Then you're a toddler and then a child. But maybe my English is not that top notch..
An embryo is a child at conception.
Jthomp I stop arguing with you, you just keep hold on your blind faith and be happy.
