Questions about abortions

May 5, 2013

To the editor: Will you or some of you readers show me the kindness to explain to me killing and murder when it comes to abortions? First, what is it if a person aborts her baby willingly for reason......

I just reread your ramblings and I missed a couple of things. SCOTUS has ruled on many things that we did not get over, as you so simply suggest. They ruled a certain way in fugitive slave laws as well as segregation laws. It's a really good thing that as humans we simply did not accept their rulings and "get over it." You also suggest that we cannot barge in on a woman's life and tell her what to do with her body. That baby is not her body, it is his or her own little body. I'm so glad your mother chose life for you, and that you chose life for your children. Hearing my children's hearts beat at merely three weeks of life were life changing moments for me.

Perhaps you should research the Latin translation of fetus. This is not a religious issue. You are the only one who has insinuated that it is. It is however a legal issue which I have legally debased. As for those "unwanted" children, I have already addressed in a previous statement our extreme social problem with personal responsibility. In addition to that there are many parents who seek out of country adoptions because they can't have children of their own. Adoption is the humane option. Killing a child is as barbaric as Hitler who killed the mentally and physically disabled because of their imperfections. Also, the author never mentioned rape, incest, or risk of mother's life but since you also brought this issue up I will address it: These issues combined make up for less than one half of one percent of requested abortions. Finally, the slavery comparison is apt. If we can justify murder with a law, we can justify anything with a law; in fact, we have in our past.

What is going to become of these unwanted children? Are those arguing for and end to abortion going to adopt or foster these children? Of course not. There are already hundred of thousands of children in this country who need a family, who need rescued. Why not help those children already here instead of trying to re-victimize a rape victim by making them carry their attackers child? The supreme court has already ruled on this, get over it there are far more important issues to address like extreme poverty, homelessness, Joblessness, rape, hunger, disease, and a myriad of other issues plaguing this country. Comparing slavery to abortion makes no sense therefore I can't take you seriously. I am a mom I know what its like to be pregnant but I also know the science behind pregnancy.

Abortion is complex and can not easily be governed. A fetus is just that a fetus until further along in the pregnancy so let's not get confused about what is what. Any religious argument for or against has no place in this debate being we have a separation of church and state. I don't agree with women having multiple abortions, relying on abortion as a form of birth control but that's not for me to decide for them. No one has the right to barge into a woman's life and tell her she has to carry a child to term especially the government. I am a little shocked and taken aback by the author of this letter who is she to tell a rape or incest victim that she has to carry her attacker's child to term? There are times when medically speaking abortion is the best option. What is going to become of a baby that is born to a mother who died during childbirth?

Ah yes abortion: "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Murder's intent is to end a life. Abortion's intent is to end a life. How about we redefine slavery as swapping. Swapping is legal. We can now swap work for housing, food, and clothing. After all, the intent is still the same! I use my salary to pay my mortgage, purchase groceries, and buy food. I could just enslave myself to someone and do work for them, and they could take care of all of those other things! Also, there is no Constitutional right to abortion. That you would even bring that up is a perfect example of your grasping at straws here. In addition to the lack of Constitutionalality the Eighth Amendment expressly forbids cruel and unusual punishment, the Ninth Amendment guarantees rights not specifically stated in the Bill of Rights, and we all have equal protection under the law. Again, slavery used to be Constitutional but our ancestors corrected that horrible mistake. Thanks for playing! Go home.

I never claimed that babies aren't sacs of cells, I merely pointed out that we all are. You did not disprove that we are all cellular organisms. Murder is certainly a legal term and I never stated otherwise; however, an issue's legality does not make it right. Once upon a time in our great country slavery, segregation, and disenfranchisement were all legal. That makes it right? I've heard all of my babies' heart's beat at five weeks gestation, and since that week count starts at the first day of the menstrual cycle, my babies had been alive for a mere three weeks. Life is beautiful, abortion is murder. For the record McCore, I'm so happy that your mother chose life. I may disagree with what you say and choose to ignore your assumptions and personal attacks, but I'm happy that you were born.

I have not used a lot of assumptions, but I have used facts. It is now very obvious that you have no counterpoints as you're only retort is that I don't understand the issue. My knowledge of the issue has been made very clear. Would you feel more comfortable if I used a feminazi line on you? No uterus to opinion!

McCore: It's anschutz, as in the brand of target rifle Anschutz. Your "typo" is not that clever. I can tell what word you are trying to call me. Now on to the crux of my statement: Intelligence is knowing a tomato is a fruit, but wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad. Yes humans start out as cells. Yes we are still made up of cells. The letter to the editor is about abortion. Regardless of how old the baby is, the term still applies. Calling an abortion an elimination of cells does not change the meaning. I notice that when you have nothing valid to add to an argument, you simply attempt to discredit people by challenging their persuasive style. Your tactics are silly at best and ineffective at worst. Ironically, these attempts only discredit you because they display how juvenile you are instead of actually providing a counterpoint. Just take your ball and go home.

It's not a person? Then congratulations! You're not pregnant so abortion isn't even an issue! For those who are pregnant, those cells are arms and legs that are ripped off. Those cells are brains being vacuumed out of baby's skull. Those cells make up the spine that Planned Parenthood backed Dr. Gossnell snipped. The cries of the babies though, those are not cells. Those are sounds. So I guess you're correct about something. According to you the 22 week old baby kicking in my belly is just a life/death choice for me, but you would deny my choice to defend my life with a firearm. The culture of death sickens me. It's so frightening to think that the minds behind the cures for cancer, AIDS, or even the common cold were perhaps denied their choices to live.

Well Florence, it's murder regardless of how you justify it. My personal favorite is that "it's just a sack of cells." with that justification we can abort anybody at any age, because we are all sacks of cells regardless of whether or not we are in a mother's womb. Unfortunately we live in a society that does not understand personal responsibility. It is quite sad really. The are too many easy ways out of difficult situations instead of taking charge of our lives and making better decisions. It's quite frightening that people claim "woman's choice" yet don't take into account the baby's choice. I have found that the same people who cry "choice" when it comes to murder demand I have no choices when it comes to protecting myself, my family and my property.

Florence, Although I can understand your view, please look at the opposite side of the coin. Unwanted, unloved, cold, hungry, neglected, burned, beaten, abused, dirty, afraid. Thinking finger prints come from having your hands placed on hot stove burners so many times.A 15 month old sexually abuse in Texas. They tossed this child back and forth so much that her skull cracked from hitting the ceiling so many times. Those are just a few of the tortures unwanted children go through. Graphic I know.But,I wonder which is worse? For the rest of you. You can be pro choice without being pro abortion. Think about it.

Abortion - A Women's Right to Choose! The Supreme Court has so ruled that it is allowed by our constitution.
