    First off, a fetus is attached to it's mother. It's something called a ****ing umbilical cord. Until very late into the prgnancy can a fetus survive on it's own.

    Until then, it is entirely dependant on the mother. It is a part of her. It is a piece of her body. She has every right in the world to do what she wants with her body. You, nor anyone else in the world has any right what so ever, to command her. This is blatant stupid attempts at convincing her to make an already difficult desicion. This is borderline mental harrassment.

    You are a ****ing idiot and are the epitome of ignorance and superstition that should have died in the dark ages.

    Good day to you, sir.
    what an idiotic reply. children are incapable of surviing on their own for years after the umbilical cord has been cut. They are totally dependent on others to survive. That doesn't mean we can kill them.

    Okay. I don't think we're talking about the same thing. Doesn't matter. Cultural differences, I guess.

    That's a totally false comparison. A child dependent on society is a bit different from a fetus depending on the woman's oxygen, food, and blood to sustain itself, in the process causing varying degrees of harm to her body.

    Re: Texas law requires women to hear description of fetus before abortion

    Similar to the Virginia law, I oppose this not on some notion that its the woman's inherently right to kill whatever is growing insider her but rather the government shouldn't have the role of mandating that private citizens purchase a private good/service in order to partake in another private legal good/service.

    That said, not similar to the Virginia Law, I am not a citizen of Texas and thus my outrage at it or significant issue and disagreement is significantly lessened. I have an issue with the one in Virginia because its done by people who are my representitives. While I may disagree with the Texas law, its that states citizens decision on what they want their state government to do or not. I disagree with it, strongly, but my anger and desire to fight it is significantly less.

    I agree.
    Until a fetus becomes viable it is totaly depending on the pregnant woman's body to sustain itself.

    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    it is a bit different, but it isn't substantially different. In both situations, a person is being forced to provide for a person that can't survive on their own.

    the only difference is some people are ok forcing this on a faceless "society", but not on a named individual.

    Re: Texas law requires women to hear description of fetus before abortion

    Apparently some people think it's ok to murder a person as long as you don't actually meet them. It's their right to think that. However, what about the father's rights? Two people having consented with creating a life and some selfish murderous b**** can decide that some poor guys children are worthless and can just abort them because she wants to and there is nothing he can say or do about it. That's pretty messed up.
