    And I would hope that woman thinks long and hard about her decision to get one because....
    She may regret her decision.

    I honestly think the insinuation that most women don't think about it ludicrous and insulting. Why do you think regret rates are reasonably low? Abortion requires you to do something, and spend a lot of money to do it. Simply staying pregnant doesn't.

    I really don't understand how people's heads are working when they think about a theoretical woman getting an abortion.

    So would you agree with me that an abortion at any stage is the killing of human life?

    For the record, I wouldn't call it "mercy killing" either because it's not like the child is in any danger or in pain or anything. It's just that the mother doesn't want to carry the child, the mother thinks she cannot be a good mother, the mother thinks that she doesn't have the finances to take care of a child... whatever the reason may be.

    To me, (and this will probably piss people off, but I don't care), most women who have abortions make that decision based on selfishness. "I don't want to be a mother." "I don't have the money to spend on a baby." "I want to have a career without having to take care of a child." "I don't want to be a single mother." And they know they're killing their baby, which is why they have to "think long and hard about it" and realize it's a "moral conundrum." They know exactly what they're doing - it tugs at their heart - it tugs at their moral compass - but they do it anyway. *sigh*
    As I said, I've spent a fair amount of time in the Abortion forum and I think I know most of the pro-choice women who used to or still post there and I haven't seen any cheerleading for abortion.

    You are welcome to your opinion. May I ask, do you actually know anyone who has had an abortion? More than one woman?

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Again, the cheerleading I saw was from people who aren't on the forum anymore. Just because you didn't see it, doesn't mean it never happened.

    No, none of my friends or family have had abortions (that I know of).

    Do you know that many on the pro-choice side get worked up because the pro-life side is against birth control. I don't know your feeling on the issue, but it's impossible to get an abortion if you're not pregnant.

    I do. Several, actually.

    And Gina, there is one "regular" in the Abortion forum who hasn't posted in the last several days who has referred to a fetus as "garbage" (as well as an invading parasite intent on draining the lifeforce from a woman, etc. Ugly stuff, no matter what your POV).

    Yes, some are. Pro-life Catholics are.
