    Why shouldn't they be required to have parental consent before engaging in a surgery that threatens not only their lives but is guaranteed to kill their baby?

    Because getting your tongue pierced doesn't involve nine months of pregnancy or a painful childbirth, doesn't require an 18-22 year commitment, and doesn't cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    I would say that is prudent.

    It's not for you to decide whether this is one of my "life's most important questions".
    To some, it could be as bereft of deeper meaning as a pap smear.

    Who are you to say they're wrong?

    Do they tell you what should and shouldn't matter to you?
    And if they did, would you listen?

    Oh, so it's okay to kill a baby and risk death because pregnancy is such an awful risky experience and there's absolutely nothing doctors can do to make it safe or comfy.

    And....who ever said the teenage momma had to KEEP the child? You people never heard of the word "adoption"?

    Abortion isn't terribly dangerous either, unless you're using a coathanger or something.

    And who is going to pay for the medical bills of the unwanted pregnancy? You?

    But minors are still, for the most part, property of their parents, like it or not. As such, I'd be perfectly happy to require parents who do not give consent to be required to raise the newborn from birth to 18 if their child chooses not to. They make the call, they suffer the consequences.

    I'm not worried about nine months of painful pregnancy, anyone who doesn't want that should have kept their legs together in the first place.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It's one of the most incredibly dangerous procedures on record.

    How many babies survive the procedure?

    Don't ever make the mistake of accusing me of having pity. They made the mistake, they can pay for it. Or they can find some nice charitable socialists suffering from white guilt or something. Whatever, ain't my prob.

    If not, why not?
    This just another far-right attempt to make people wait until it is too late to legally abort a pregnancy. This 24 waiting period needs to be stopped. It is a complete violation of a woman's reproductive rights.

    Can you please explain why you feel a fetus is entitled to a right to life. If your answer is "because it's human," please define human and explain why you believe humans are entitled to the right to life whereas no other animal is.

    No one has answered that question yet.

    Babies don't typically have abortions, as they can't get pregnant. Normally the patients are at least in their teens.

    Don't worry, I'll never make that mistake. But why does your heart bleed so much for those cute wittle baby fetuses then?

    Re: 24 hour waiting period for abortion

    Sooo... the women have to make an appt for 24 hrs past the day they are calling to make the appt? I really fail to see how that's a big deal.

    I don't understand the point of it, but I don't see it as some burden.
