    Iím going to extrapolate on the root of this poll. The root of the poll is who has the right to decide if a fertilized egg will be allowed to have a chance at becoming a new person. My root is what if a person took a womanís egg, took out the womanís genetic material, then substituted his own complete genetic material and implanted that fertilized egg back in the woman. (I donít think this can be done yet.) So now we have a woman that is in the same status as is as this poll states, only who the fertilized egg will become is different. Yup, now what is your answer? Who is the baby?
    Maybe this should be a new poll.

    Any women should have the option of taking Plan B, and getting an abortion if that fails.

    She should also feel free to do one and not the other, or neither.

    She should be able to do whatever is right for her, regardless of her circumstances.

    You miss something here Parrish.... I'm not a proponent of casual sex; so no sexual encounter I ever have is going to start with a woman I just met in a bar. Sex is properly reserved for a committed, long-term relationship only.

    You're a proponent of traditional values, like only having sex with someone you're married to. Right?

    No. I don't believe one has to wait until marriage. I do believe that they should be waiting until they are in a committed, long-term relationship. That doesn't necessarily mean a marriage. It's also why at age 37 I can still count the number of women I've been with on a single hand's worth of fingers.

    Then you should stop claiming that you are for traditional values and morality and all that.

    Amazing to me that "most" who are adamantly against morning after pill and abortion abandon the welfare and well being of children after they are born and instead focus on what scum bags the irresponsible women (in most cases women are blamed - some will say "parents") and suggest social policies that are aimed at punishing these parents, but wind up punishing the children.

    If unwanted children are forced to be born...then all of society MUST STEP UP and accept financial responsibility for these kids if their parents fail to do so...PERIOD.

    The last time I debated this topic we all were snipey and the thread was promptly flushed.

    I'll just sum up my views: my eggs are not for anyone to do with as they please and neither is my body. Just because someone figures out how to make something happen via coercion or tactic with me or my eggs doesn't mean I have to accept the results and struggle to reconcile it.

    If this was centuries ago - and I was the Virgin Mary - I'm afraid religion would have ended there.

    Then I am going to assume you are unfamiliar with the ancient Northern European tradition of Handfasting, right?

    What on earth would that have to do with this issue you two are debating?
