The only problem is that the 3rd one really does look like a blob.

Also, from a graphic point of view, the third one is a pain in the arse to read. Especially the "I am not a blob" part.

I think calling them blobs makes it that much easier to not recognize them as children. ( I'm pro-choice, not that it matters, but still ).

Just my twp cents

(Link)
I support abortion. Why? Because for a plethora of reasons. One of the reasoning I have is some people should not have children. I am clearly one of them. Seccond reason is a case to save the life of the mother. Sure it's rare, but it does indeed happen. Third, The pro lifers deny this, but before abortion was legalized, It was done back-alley. Mary Davies, a young girl, was a victim of an illegal abortion and died shortly after. The abortion was done by a man named Dr. Spencer.The cousin of Dorothy Allison also recieved a back-alley abortion and bled to death. I spoke to a coroner who told me that he had seen a lot of back alley abortions and the results were gruesome. Once abortion was legalized, They stopped overnight. Back alley abortions weren't really done with coat hangers. They actually were used with dirty, unsterilized hoses or used catheters. Also, About the fetus. In the first trimester, It is an embryo unable to survive outside the body and therefore is connected to the mother and feeds off of her. Like a parasite (Which I'm not saying it is), It needs a host to live. Therefore, It is not formed. I also believe in abortion because the government won't usually sterilize people under the age of 24. I made up my mind quite a while ago that I did not want a kid. So if I want to get my tubes tied, I won't be able to since I'm only nineteen. These are my reasons for supporting abortion. They are circumstantial, of course, as you see. The maintainer of the website of Abortion Facts is a fundamentalist Christian and his "facts" are not true at all. Illegal abortions did happen. The story of Mary Davies is living proof. And by the way, All you pro-lifers should read a book called The Worst Of Times. This book contains the testament of children who have lost their mothers to illegal abortions and also women who are infected or harmed by the back-alley creeps themselves.

I am pro-life, and your argument both makes me very sad, but at the same time, it just makes clearer the huge problems with "pro-choice" ideaologies. . .
For one thing, the only semi-valid statement you made was that back-alley, illegal abortions cause a lot of damage to the girls who have them. I KNOW these things happened, and I know how terrible that is. I think it is incredibly sad that young girls would have their lives cut short because of a botched up, illegal, dirty, unsafe procedure. I don't wish that on anyone. However, that isn't a valid reason to legalize abortions. For one, even legal "safe" abortions can have terrible affects on the women. They are incredibly unhealthy, and can lead to future miscarriages, cancers, internal bleeding, infections, and death. Plus, it is more often than not emotionally scarring and damaging to the girls. I often make this analogy. . . Many heroin addicts die from using infected needles, unsafe heroin mixed with other drugs, and from improper use of the drug. Does that mean we should make heroin legal so that junkies can shoot up safely with clean needles and pure heroin?? I don't think so.
Your other reasoning is just ridiculous. . . Since you can't get your tubes tied you should be able to have an abortion?? Have you ever heard of birth control pills, or a condom? Or, if those would fail,adoption??? Or, since you really don't seem mature enough to take responsiblity for your actions, maybe you should not be having sex at all until you are able to be sterilized. I don't particularly want children either, and I am nineteen, the same as you, but I don't feel that if I am stupid enough to screw up and get myself pregnant, my innocent unborn child should have to die to make my life simpler.
And those books and examples you give ignore the fact that those women CHOSE to go see an abortionist. Noone forced them. They also,as sad as it is, have to take responsibility for their actions.

ur heroin argument is not good because we should legalize all drugs. i do not do drugs, but if legalize we can eliminate the national debt, some crime, and drugs will be safer ever if anyone who does them is stupid. legalizing drugs wont cause anymore people to do them. im not going to buy heroin if its legal. also, we need to stop arresting people who smoke pot because alcohol and cigarettes are worse for ur health.

The vast majority of abortions performed in America are first trimester and the average rate of complications is 3% according to the CDC. In fact, a first trimester abortion is 2 times more safe than a shot of penecilin. As for second and third trimester, in my homestate, Virginia, under state law termination of pregancies must be performed in a hospital because after the first trimester, the risk of complications increases significantly. If this minority of procedures is what you are referencing when you are saying "For one, even legal "safe" abortions can have terrible affects on the women. They are incredibly unhealthy, and can lead to future miscarriages, cancers, internal bleeding, infections, and death..." then you need to relize that you're either speaking of severly complicated and rare instances or you're referencing cases in foreign countires, such as India, where abortion is still a great stigma and medical facilities are not aquipped as they are in the states.
The truth is that in the United States, under safe and legal circumstances, abortion is many times safer and less prone to complications than child birth.

As a matter of fact, the government does have a program where heroin addicts can get clean needles from free clinics. All they have to do is come and ask for them.

I had an abortion a few months ago and I know that I did the right thing. I had taken drugs and pills that caused birth defects in the fetus. I had to ask myself if I was ready to care for a severely handicapped child, and whether it was a good life for that child to live. I am glad that the option of abortion was available to me. I think about my child everyday and I pray for that child, but if faced with situation again, I would do it again.


Also, your "facts" about abortion are wrong. You should check things out before you start giving out information. Abortions do not affect furure conception. It does not cause death. As a matter of fact, more women die from complications of giving birth than from complications from abortion. And as for mental and emotional strain, sure, it happens. But it's also an incredible sense of relief when you know that you have a choice. There are just situations that pregnant women can be in that are not ideal for children. Check your facts and stop misinforming people.

Just out of interest, why do you regard having a child you did not plan, do not want, and will probably not be able to support as "taking responsibility"?

"those women would not have died had they not been trying to kill their child - taking the easy way out."
So what, having a child is your punishment for your sins or something? Having a child is a punishment? I would never want to raise my baby thinking that she was a "mistake because mommy was a bad woman". I think children are gifts not punishments.
"If you don't want a child don't have sex."
Great advice! So we should all be celibate as nuns is what you are saying? Face the reality: people have sex, women get raped, condoms break, incest still occurs, fetuses can be mortally deformed, eptopic pregancies happen, diaphrams leak, etc. as long as there are these circumstances there will be a demand for abortions.

1. Are you your heart-beat?

2. You are lacking some serious education about fetal development. Some information for you:

There are several phases of the fetal heart's development. At first, the heart is just a tube. In the first few weeks, the fetal heart occupies most of the fetus' mid-section. Later on it moves down to occupy its position in the chest cavity, bending and twisting as it grows. During the next phase, the two atria are partly separate but there is just one big ventricle. The next phase begins when the two atria are completely separate and the ventricles are just beginning to separate. This is at 8 weeks, where the fetus' heart begins to separate into four chambers, and blood is circulating throughout the body; thus the heartbeat. A heartbeat indicates that the arteries are contracting and expanding. That's it. What else besides blood flow would sustain this living organism?

If you're telling me abortion is wrong because the fetus circulates blood, you better hit the books, my child.

3. Who are you to decide about other women´s sexual lives, about their bodies, about their lives? Is anyone telling you how to live your life? Nope - so stop telling other people. Nothing makes your beliefs more important than the beliefs or the pro-choicers.

4. As for the women who want children and can´t have them. Great! Then why aren't they flocking to the doors of the foster homes and orphanages currently housing 130,000 unwanted children? More pro-"life" hypocrisy, perhaps? They want to force all children to be born, regardless, but once a "less desirable" child is born, they COULDN'T CARE LESS what happens to it.

That there are women who want children and can't have them is totally irrelevant. The fact that woman A wants children and can't have them has no bearing on Woman B having an abortion because she's pregnant and don't want to be. If you think differently, please do back up your argument logically, because I've been wanting someone to explain to me how the desire of one woman has anything to do with the desires of another.

There are already millions of children in the world who don't have parents. People who cannot have children are far often too damned picky about the child they want to raise.

Perhaps some people should not have children, like unmarried ones for example. But when a baby gets “planted” should it not have life? The life of the mother is important. Yet people die all the time, mothers included. But I’ve never heard of a soldier throwing a child on a hand grenade to save his skin. The fact is the life of the child is as important as that of the Mom. Abortion for any old reason makes the “life of the mother” a convenient excuse. People died from “back alley” abortions, and they die and are maimed from legal abortions too. The abortion clinic standards and their equipment are often not sufficient to treat the “mistakes” that are made in the woman’s womb. As to the embryo, we were all embryos, and would not be alive today with out having BEEN them. There are laws protecting some animals and their embryos better than Human embryos. The fact is that believe in God or not human sperm added to an human egg will make a human being, and at what point it becomes human is not important, what is, is that it will be born human barring natural or unnatural death. Many people don’t want “kids”. But if you want sex, beware : children are made when man and woman “hook up”. As for websites and Fundamentalist Christians, the unborn know nothing of them, but would enjoy attacking or defending them as much as you or I given LIFE !!!!!

last comment- no, you are not correct. The reason I am choosing to stop arguing is because you aren't going to change my mind nor am I going to change yours. When I meet God? Don't force your religion on me.
