But Roe v. Wade was about a man's right to perform medicine, not a woman's right to abort. You have to read the fine print.
There are challenges but they are unique to the kid's needs. I'm doing very worthwhile work, stuff that few have ever considered doing, I'm happy. I think my life is worth living. My brother feels the same way about his. The kids I know feel the same way.
It's life. It always felt awkward trying to explain to someone else that my life or my brother's life wasn't so tragic so as to merit not ever have been experienced. That's mostly the non-disabled's twisted view of things.
If the person needs additional care, you plan for different situations. If my parents died young, we were to go with our Aunt. When I o became old enough, my sister and I entered the phase we are in now. When my folks pass on, we get him. We are certainly nervous about making the right calls for him, but we think of him as a centerpiece in our lives. He doesn't add a burden to us. He's our brother. He's a good guy, he does his job well, he makes everyone laugh. He just wants to live how he wants to. It's not a crime....some abhorrent thought.
A kid with Down Syndrome in our community is hopefully going to be a local business owner. Another is very active in the community.

"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
The pro-abortion position is informed by ludicrous and delusional hatred, and often bizarre and extreme religious notions, as evidenced by the pro-aborts on this site who express the notion that killing is essential religious freedom, that killing is okay because reincarnation fixes everything, and that rape babies are spawn sent by the devil.
Again, **** society; individual rights are what matters.
But yes, individual human rights are well served by imprisoning those who kill innocent human beings in aggression so they can't hurt anyone else.
But it is absolutely a good thing for such a human piece of **** to get such a greivous injury that she's sterilized or dead.
It is not an abomination to not support killing someone because of something their parents did. The abomination is yours for supporting such a thing.2) if however, you are consistent, you are forced to support abominations like opposing abortion in cases of rape, incest
Individual human rights are well served by aggressive and violent killers being locked up so they can't kill again. That's why we have governments in the first place.3) and you have to tell us how society is better off jailing mothers who have abortions
I can see why women get so militant when they hear men telling them that abortion ought to be banned. Its a moronic position that only hurts society
there's no sensible reason to imprison women who get abortions or drive them into "back alley abortions"... though there are sensible/reasonable restrictions on abortion.
I'm certainly no fan of abortion...but after reading this thread, i'm becoming more of a fan....I'm even becoming a fan of legally aborting people after they reach adulthood.
