True Story, I was not referring to you. I actually agree with you, being a mother of three I also believe that life begins at conception. I had my first child when I was barely 17. I chose not to end pregnancy. However, if I were viciously raped I could not say that was an act of God, and honestly don't know if I would end the pregnancy or not. It is a CHOICE that I am thankful I was never faced with. I took birth control during my childbearing years so I could control when I had my children. My husband then had a vasectomy. Hmm, I wonder if some of these people will look down on him because he chose to prevent pregnancy.
This is my first time responding on this type of forum but I am finding some of these comments so ridiculous that I felt I needed to comment. It seems that the concensus on this site is that abortion is bad, no matter what the circumstances of impregnation were. The decision to terminate a pregnancy is a woman's choice, no matter how you look at it. If a woman truly wants to end a pregnancy it will be ended, whether a doctor performs a sterile procedure, or the woman finds a way to end it herself. That is a choice that is between the woman and her God. I am a Liberal, but I am also a Christian, my God says Judge not lest ye be judged. Seems to me like all the religion touting people on here are Judgemental Christians, not the kind that would ask themselves What Would Jesus Do? I also think these same Christians need to be aware that for several years now, the Missouri General Assembly and the United States House of Representatives have both been Republican controlled, but they still have not banned abortion. Why do you think that is?
Gus, I'm new to this forum but after reading these comments, I must ask why is it that you feel that you must stop people from making bad choices? As stated in an earlier post whatever choice a woman makes is between her and her God. No one else should be involved. Especially men who have no idea not only how a woman's body works, but even how her emotions and mental well being work. Plus, they type of abortion you are describing in earlier posts is partial birth abortion, which is already illegal in the State of Missouri. Your wonderful conservative republican party has been in power in both the Missouri General Assembly and in Congress for several years now and they still have not banned abortion entirely. So your precious conservative party may not be as totally conservative as you think they are.
