    Denial of sexism is a form of sexism. Besides, truly pro-choice men are going to tend to agree with me, because it's not gonna bruise their egos to do so.
    Many women would say that you are pigeonholing them.

    My experience has been that most of the people who I see protesting pro-choice and most of the people who seem to be anti-choice are men. There may be a reason for that and one of the reasons may be is that they aren't talking about laws that effect their bodies. They are seeking to impose their beliefs on women.

    Just like Northerners tried to impose their views on slave-owning Southerners, right? How immoral of those Northerners.

    Yup, because claiming ownership of another sentient being is totally the same thing as claiming ownership of your own body.

    I just can't take an anti-choicer seriously when they go to the slavery thing, or the Hitler thing. I can't take anti-choice all that seriously anyway if I'm honest, but it makes it that much harder. It's like if Godwin's Law and creationism got together and had a retarded incest baby.

    Re: Should a rape victim be able to take the morning after pill?

    Okay, I'm not quoting everyone I am counter pointing here so everyone has to read lol.
    1) To say that my taxpayer dollars don't fund elective abortions because (with sarcastic tone) "The gov't says it won't happen" or "people at Planned Parenthood say it won't" is so naive it isn't even funny. This is the same gov't that is giving guns to narco-terrorists, so, excuse me if I am doubtful of their ability to hold people accountable.
    2) If indeed no tax payer dollars pay for an actual abortion. My taxpayer dollars are still paying for the doctor willing to do it and the equipment he/she uses to perform it. I am also paying their lease. I don't want one cent of my taxpayer dollars funding anything to do with a place performing abortions. Thats like funding the building of a mosque and saying my taxpayer dollars don't fund the sermon on killing Americans.
    3) I will make this point again. I don't care if it is abortion for incest, rape, whatever. I am still paying for it and I don't want to. I'm pretty sure there is a lawsuit that could be brought to make Federal funding of these places stop but I don't have the money to do it.

    What's that supposed to mean?

    Don't be sexist.

    Besides, truly pro-choice men are going to tend to agree with me, because it's not gonna bruise their egos to do so.
    What about true Scotsmen?

    I am not here to defend my ego, I am here to oppose sexism. You don't get a pass on that.

    Wow, really starting to get inappropriate, especially in a thread about reproduction. (And I'm pro-choice too).

    Incredibly lame response. You just deny it. Great.

    So what do you want? It's already illegal. Do you want it to be double-secret illegal?

    Through the law. I'm not sure how you are answering my point. If abortion is considered murder then it is obviously quite different to who one sleeps with in private or even marries. So talk about conservative big gov't is obviously misplaced.
