Millions of children killed funded by the taxpayers.

I believe a fetus is a child like millions of others people also believe. Tax money enables PP to use those other monies for abortion. Take away the tax money PP would have to adjust their budget and just maybe stop supporting abortion.

core is really getting dramatic. core, maybe the money they are using for to murder children they should be using for the other stuff. Wasn't there some hidden camera footage of PP people breaking the law? PP needs to be completely funded by donations and not our tax money, if they can't make it, so be it.

How ironic those opposed to a woman's right to choose always rely on either infant's health or religion as a basis for their argument. Separation of church and state renders the religious defense irrelevant. Ask any doctor, abortion is the best decision in some cases. Who is going to care for a baby with severe problems whose mother died during childbirth? What is to become of unwanted children? There haven't been enough instances of babies being thrown in the garbage already? There haven't been enough instances of children being abused? The system is already on the brink of collapse due to the quantity of children being taken care of by the state. Why not help the children ALREADY born?

Abortion is a personal health choice for the pregnant woman - she has the right by our constitution to decide. Quit trying to make the decision for them or force them into doing something they don't want to do. I guess you prefer they go into a back alley with a coat hanger again.

Planned Parenthood offers a variety of services to women who otherwise wouldn't have access to a doctor's care. Shutting down Planned Parenthood because abortion is one of the services offered is the equivalent to shutting down Walmart because of any one of the many services they offer. There are so many children already in this world who need/want help but those people find it necessary to tell a rape victim they have to carry their attackers child. Roe vs wade already made this decision so why continue to waste your time when so many children are needing help now? Your arguments are all about children needing help, is it not? So help them.

Core is not being dramatic, 9 times out 10 when I read an article and go to comment I notice he's already posted what I was thinking. Dramatic? No Common Sense? Yes

“How ironic those opposed to a woman's right to choose always rely on either infant's health or religion as a basis for their argument.”

Relying on an infant’s health? Shameful. Simply shameful.

How ironic that those opposed to allowing the innocent unborn to live choose always to rely on a woman’s choice of convenience over the life of the unborn child.

“There haven't been enough instances of babies being thrown in the garbage already?

“Why not help the children ALREADY born?”

Great idea. Are you volunteering? Or, are you saying it is someone else’s responsibility, other than the birth mother and you?

"I guess you prefer they go into a back alley with a coat hanger again."

No. I prefer to go back to the time when men and women were smart enough to use protection, and if that failed, take responsibility for their actions and not kill an unborn child. Liberals always speak of the right of convenience to the mother, but never, the right to the unborn to LIFE.

If the two brothers in the kidnapping case will not be prosecuted for their part in the crime, what chance does the BCI or AG have nailing anyone else in Steubenville.

I am sure the brothers knew about the crime, and they failed to report a crime???????????

No chance here.

Rsimpson, you seem to think that abortion is the best choice in some circumstances because there is nobody there to care for the child. I disagree. There are many parents just waiting to adopt a child. So many in fact that a lot of people go to other countries to adopt.

It is relevant because liberals see abortion much like how some Catholics view confession. It is a chance to wipe the slate clean.

My step-DAUGHTER adopted a little boy. He is 3 years old now. He is beautiful, smart, happy, and a gift from God.

"RPG, how is that question relevent to the issue of whether the right to choose should or should not be an option for others under the Constitution? "

You do mean, except the unborn child, right?

The bottom line is Roe vs Wade. If you don't like elect someone who will repeal it. Oh, that's right you voted for Reagan and both BUshes and a slew of Congressmen. I guess they were liars because nothing has changed or maybe they just realized without abortion and birth control our population would rival that of Chinas'. If in fact abortion were nade illegal. These anti-abortion people would next line Sunet Blvd with signs reading "Stop Wic" "No More Food Stamps".

ABORTIONIST GOSNELL GUILTY OF MURDER.

Is abortion legal? Minds are being changed.

Put PP's abortion clinics out of business don't fund PP with tax money. If you lefties feel so strong about abortion you will fund PP. Core dig into your pocket and give.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell was just found guilty of MURDER for ripping zygotes or blastocysts (or BABIES, as defined in the legal documents) from women's bodies and shoving knives through their spinal cords.

You may not be aware of this, as the liberal media was more concerned with what Justin Bieber was doing to give any time to this disgusting mass murderer story.

Dr Goznel deserves the electric chair but Roe vs Wade still stands but not to protect the likes of him.

Thanks goes out to HSConnect for removing all the insulting and profane notes. I also agree with Moteman. We have kicked this horse enough. I believe abortion is wring and do not want my tax money being spent to preform them. I know that Mrcore with his insults will never change my mind. Debates should be civil the flies and honey thing.

core, your posts speak for themselves.

I challange you to show where I said an unborn child is the same as a senior. I did say they are both human.

You and I are both human, but we are definately not the same.

Hope that helps.

"You challenge me to show you where you said a blastocyst is the same as a senior?"

Yes.

"Did you not say this? "A tadpole is a frog, as a catapillar is a butterfly.""

Yes.

"Did you not say this: "The metamorphosis process is stored in the DNA...""

Yes.

I did not, however, say, as you claimed (and failed to support), that a blastocyst is the same as a senior.

"You argued that a blastocyst is a baby based on potentiality."

Nope. Wrong AGAIN. I have always stated that a human blastocyst is human based on its human DNA formed at conception.

Some folks continue to make mistakes because they absolutely refuse to admit their mistakes, to temselves, as well as others.

"Just as one drop of water is not a flood, a blastocyst is not a baby because there are not enough of the qualifiers necessary for the designation at that stage of development. My position is consistent and well defined. Yours is not. "

Then all you have to do is show us the differences in the DNA of a blastocyst vs. the adult.

DNA science is consistent and well defined. Your random-baby-creation-instant-during-pregnancy, however, is not.

"You're drawing distinctions where there is no difference."

Your opinion. I will rely on what I actually say and post, rather than your imagination.

Say, have you found what you claimed I said yet?

""I did not, however, say, as you claimed (and failed to support), that a blastocyst is the same as a senior."

But that is the necessary conclusion of your argument."

Only in your mind. Not my fault.

"So you DID say that a blastocyst is a baby."

Yep. Both human. But I did not say they were the same. All humans are not the same. An individual human is not the same at two years old as they are at twenty. But they are still human.

"You also said this: "Dr. Kermit Gosnell was just found guilty of MURDER for ripping zygotes or blastocysts (or BABIES, as defined in the legal documents)"

So you DID say that a blastocyst is a baby."

Yep. I used the term blastocyst that you love so much to help you realize how you shamefully misrepresented and minimized the reality about Gosnell, and what he did, in your posts. We understand how hard it is for you to see the unborn as a human child. Does a blastocyst have a spinal cord to stab with scissors, core? That is part of what Gosnell did when the BABY he extracted from the mother's womb refused to die on its own.

Gosnell was found guilty of murdering babies, not your blastocyst. You hide behind that term so you don't have to recognize what it truly is that you support killing. Your problem, not mine.

You should post your disgust for what Gosnell did, rather than take your time to give him a pass.
