    You said,

    "That's why abortion is severely restricted after that point, and even the vast majority of the left would only support abortion with the life of the mother in danger (I know about the "health" issue). "

    Again, your own words get you. "Severely restricted" is inconsistent with the principles you espoused. You tell us when life begins, then use this phrase to admit that abortion after the point it is "severely restricted" is taking a viable life from the infant. How many lives have been denied the right to live?

    I stand with those who try to protect those who have no voice - they have life, but no voice, yet. And of course, the life of the mother (if threatened) must be given first consideration.

    "Speaking for the left, the answer is No. We do believe that a fetus does become a living human entity after the point of viability."

    You have not been keeping up. When Roe vs Wade was passed, the abortion advocates were declaring that abortion would not be advocated, but rather would be rare-the exception rather than the rule. The world was told that the only purpose of abortion rights was to give options to a mother with an unwanted pregnancy - birth would still be the preference.

    Fast forward to today's left agenda - pushing abortion to later and later. Each time, it is said that viability is later and later. Now in some states, they are talking about late term abortions and even after birth, giving the mother the right to decide to "terminate the life" of the infant on the table nearby. The life of the mother is no longer going a question to be settled by ending the life of the child. Abortion is a business. Some doctors are in the abortion business. Some institutions are in the abortion business. Follow the money.

    "I have never seen or heard of anyone murdering a fetus born alive."

    I refer you to Gosnell, the abortion doctor, who is serving time for the murder of children born alive.

    "Fetus born alive." Good attempt to de-humanize the child.

    Anti-abortion people base their opposition is religious terms.

    In the U.S. you can practice whatever religion you want and as long as you practice that religion you can abide by whatever rules it indicates.

    But that doesn’t mean you get to take your religious beliefs and dictate the lives of other people. Your religion tells YOU what you can and cannot do.

    Utahute 69 "Seriously, do you really believe that a child is not a living entity prior to being born? "

    Speaking for the left, the answer is No. We do believe that a fetus does become a living human entity after the point of viability. At that point separate working parts come together and work as a system..a human system. That's why abortion is severely restricted after that point, and even the vast majority of the left would only support abortion with the life of the mother in danger (I know about the "health" issue).

    I'm amazed that every day the same question comes from the right, when do you think a baby is alive. We know when it is and have for decades.

    Death threats are NEVER o.k.
    Abortions are FAR worse.

    Lilly Munster Could we get just one real fact or truth. Planned Parenthood doesn't do abortions? Their president said that is the business of planned parenthood.

    These comments of irrational lunacy are what drive the progressives. It would be like me saying progressives kill babies. Oh wait that is what they do. 60 million since row vs wade. Ever see the movie about Gosnell? If not it is because the abortionists don't want it shown.

    lol I get it you weren't serious, you were just trying to troll pro-life people.

    The doctor was performing legal operations, and she claims that harrassment cost her job. I believe her - and I believe that she would not have been harrassed, were it not for religion. We decided a long time ago that abortion is legal, and yet, we have fringe, religious-based elements defending harrassment.

    That’s not OK.

    @EDM, so you say "Religion has everything to do with it. It twist our behavior such that we care more for the unborn than the living." In your case the only twisted behavior comes from those that somehow believe that the unborn are not living. Seriously, do you really believe that a child is not a living entity prior to being born? Speaking of being twisted, perhaps you can tell us all when a baby is finally considered to be alive.

    Ultimately, if you harass someone you are breaking the law. So harassing this doctor is illegal.
    Abortions are not illegal anymore. So the law sees this differently than most of you commentating.
    I am bound to uphold the law, as my husband Joseph told me to do.

    I don't condone abortions but let's be real. Do we accuse all those fathers who want to "cut the cord" of their newborns as murder... please be intelligent enough to see this in context.
    After working in baby delivery for more than 40 years (in places we could opt out of working with abortions), I have never seen or heard of anyone murdering a fetus born alive.

    While I cannot condone threats of violence against her or her family, I am glad we have one less abortionist in Utah.

    As to her claim she did not cut babies’ throats, that is exactly when some abortion procedures do.

    What does religion have to do with this?

    Whazzzzzzupppp
    If your name IS Donald trump, PLEASE get off twitter!

    This has to be said. Women's clinics that have never had anything to do with abortions have been bombed or set on fire. Doctors have been assassinated in the streets, their medical practices, and even in their own churches. Pregnant women in waiting rooms at medical clinics have been assaulted and beaten. Planned Parenthood, which does not perform abortions, in spite of the angry, irrational lies perpetuated against them, is regularly demonized and suffers ongoing violence against them and their clients, are proof of which side perpetuates violence and hatred.

    So let me get this straight. According to the article, it was just yesterday that she clarified that she DIDN'T mean cutting vocal cords as she's aborting babies?

    Maybe there's a good reason that's what people thought -- Twitter isn't the most effective medium for nuanced conversations. It sounds like this Doctor put her foot in her mouth, lost her job, and is now lashing out and suing whomever she can.

    A word to the wise: if your name isn't Donald Trump, get off Twitter.

    To "EDM" so, killing babies is more noble than reporting on the news?? Really??

    So the people starving in Atheist countries like North Korea and China is not as bad as an ABORTION doctor's name dragged through the mud.

    All of this pales in comparison to what she did to those unborn children.

    We have religion to thank for countless, daily suffering around the globe - and this is just one example.
