How do people expect women to carry a child of rape and incest? Please defend
that position with logic and compassion.
These extreme legislative (GOP) games only harm the pro-life movement, will not
save lives, and only harden pro-choice views. Society is moving more and more
pro-life all the time on it’s own. These bills are counterproductive..
@Frozen Fractals:"1. pregnancy test taken every time she has
intercourse."How many who reliably use birth control get
pregnant? I presume those who have sex and realize a condom has broken or IUD is
out of place, will test."2. ...at least a month into it."How many, how often? And why not? Where human life is involved, some
minimum level of responsibility must be required. That's why you demand
mandatory safe storage for guns. Why not mandatory safe sex?"3.
Plenty of obstacles are put in the way of it." Of abortion. But
not birth control.How many unintended pregnancies would we have if
sexually active women consistenty used birth control which is easy and cheap to
obtain?45% of all abortions are repeats. Time to stop using abortion
as birth control."4. Life of mother and a fetus ... near-certain
fatal condition ..."And exceptions exist for these cases. So not
an issue."2/3 are in first 8 weeks. 91% by wk 13....."8 weeks ban only affects 1/3rd, a 13 week ban only affects 9%. Will you
support limits at either mark? What happens when "viability" is 15
weeks? Rarity is not the question. Every life matters. "One is too
many" you say after every shooting.
@NoNamesAccepted"A low-cost, over-the-counter home pregnancy test will
accuractely detect pregnancy 14 days after conception. That leaves 6 weeks to
end an unwanted pregnancy before this ban kicks in.When dealing with
a developing human life, that seems more than reasonable.What am I
missing?"A few things:1. Nobody is getting a pregnancy
test taken every time she has intercourse. Generally that's just after a
missed period, morning sickness, or when trying to get pregnant (not a very
applicable situation to this of course).2. Oftentimes women don't
find out they are pregnant until at least a month into it.3. Plenty of
obstacles are put in the way of it. Some states only have one clinic that
provides abortion and it can be hours away so one might have to schedule time
off of work, possibly multiple days because some states have waiting period laws
too, and it can be a financial/transportation hassle to deal with.4. Life
of mother and a fetus developing with a near-certain fatal condition are often
later term issues.2/3 are in first 8 weeks. 91% by wk 13. Only 1.3%
are above 21 weeks/past viability.
Anyone else find it ironic that today's very aggressive anti-abortion GOP,
is headed by a guy that has probably funded more abortions than all the other US
Why is there ever a need for an elective abortion after 8 weeks?Birth control is highly effective, readily available, inexpensive, easy to
use, and carries no social stigma. There is really no reason to get pregnant,
even if one is sexually active. And yet, 45% of all abortions are repeat
abortions. Clearly, too many are using abortion as after-the-fact birth control.
That needs to change.A low-cost, over-the-counter home pregnancy
test will accuractely detect pregnancy 14 days after conception. That leaves 6
weeks to end an unwanted pregnancy before this ban kicks in.When
dealing with a developing human life, that seems more than reasonable.What am I missing?And if not 8 weeks, at what point with the
pro-abortion crowd accept limits on purely elective abortions?
"The legislation includes exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for
pregnancies caused by rape or incest. Doctors would face five to 15 years in
prison for violating the eight-week cutoff. "So the rapists are
favored over the docs. Wow. Explosive.
