This is why the abortion debate is so dishonest on the left

Leftards/Democrats: "But what if the woman is raped??! What if her life is in danger?!!!!! Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!"



I'm not even a big proponent of anti-abortion laws (I just don't want taxpayers being forced to fund them).

But the facts are that none of the left's made up talking points are real.

Less than 1% of legal gun owners (let alone AR15 owners) are involved in mass shootings or murder - but that doesn't stop Liberals from wanting to change gun laws.

What's the point of a law for full term abortions ?

Hispanic votes for the Right, although I may be wrong about this. I mingle with Hispanics more and more lately, and although they (2/3) vote D, they are extremely religious and family-oriented.

Hispanics are ultra conservative, but more illegal immigration comes before everything else for first and second generation Hispanics that have illegal family members which at this point is never ending.

Republican Pete Flores, backed by endorsements from Abbott, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, Cruz and U.S. Senator John Cornyn, won a stunning upset victory over well-known Democrat Pete Gallego in a San Antonio special election to capture a state Senate seat. The election was to fill the remaining term of disgraced former state Senator Carlos Uresti, who resigned his seat after being convicted in federal court of eleven felony charges. This marks the first time a Hispanic Republican has been elected to the Texas Senate and the first time the Senate has had twenty-one Republican senators....

In other words, Texas Hispanics have a streak of conservatism that earlier this year prompted one national pollster in Washington to call Texas the Bible belt of Hispanics. Part of the Flores message in the San Antonio race was his pro-life position, a stance that Mackowiak believes resonates with Hispanic voters more than people realize.

The shift in the black and hispanic vote helped put Ron DeSantis into office. So it's not a minor point. Blacks are extremely anti-gay, and hispanics are extremely anti-abortion.

We're talking about a procedure that a doctor believes appropriate. IF you handcuff doctors from doing that, you put them in a rough position where in a one in 10,000 situation, they have to decide between committing a crime that they could go to prison for life for, versus killing the mother, or perhaps causing highly likely brain damage to the baby versus aborting, or other specific obscure situations that the doctor and mother should be allowed to decide on without the government sticking their nose in to say some opitions are not on the table, even if they are the best decision.

As Goran noted in above, the vast majority of abortions are elective surgeries, for financial or personal reasons, not medical ones.

Medical science is pretty advanced, and there's almost no reason a baby has to be aborted for medical reasons. Far less than a fraction of 1%.

First versus second and third trimester abortions are starkly different. Up to the second trimester, you're talking about (sometimes undifferentiated) cells in a lump no bigger than a grape. Second trimester and beyond, things start to take a dramatically more human shape.

Maybe the real debate here is one of timing. When do cells become a person?

I'd wager somewhere around second trimester (month 3ish). Also, you'd probably realize that you were pregnant before month 3, right? I mean, unless you already had some condition that was suppressing menses? or were oblivious somehow to missed cycles? or on hard drugs?

When 99% of abortions are elective wtf does the doctor have to do with the decision? You are arguing for literally miniscule edge cases and pretending that is the reason abortions exists. Be truthful.

Nearly all abortions are done out of social or economic convenience. True or false?

If you answer that honestly then you can admit Quigley is not the one wrong on this topic.

And statistics show that in the grand majority of abortions, there is no medical reason for them to be done. That’s millions of kids that will never be born because ... meh!
And medical necessity is pretty rare, pretty much confined to ectopic pregnancy or cancer that necessitates immediate treatment that would kill the baby anyway. So leave that window open for medical necessity, and let the heartless have them done up to say 10 weeks. After that, the woman has made a choice to carry the baby this far, might as well finish it up.

I know I’m in the right about this. I believe abortion to be nearly always morally wrong, and think the law should step in once the fetus is a viable baby to protect the baby’s body since they can’t make a choice.

Yes, on all these. I was referring to 3rd trimester abortions and didn't clarify that.

16-20 weeks is the cutoff for me.

Of course, then we'll get from Death Cult Feminazis into more extreme miniscule examples like the ones you stated... "Oh what if somebody is very obese and has this rare condition and didn't notice their pregnancy..." that applies is .003% of cases nonsense.

The pro-abortion crowd can't even have that discussion..........because then they lose the whole plot of it just being about the "Women's body" and admit that there is a second life to consider.

This is why the abortion debate is so dishonest and stupid in America. This grizzly practice is hidden behind euphemisms of "choice" and "reproductive rights".

Some argue that you can abort until viability. But newborn babies are not "viable" without constant food and protection from adults. In most states you would be arrested if you abandoned a new born baby. Yet you can legally rip it limb from limb if the baby is hidden from view and still in the womb a few hours before birth.

As expected, the Illinois Senate voted 34-20 on Friday to pass a bill that is even more extreme than New York's infanticide law. The "Reproductive Health Act" repeals the state's ban on partial-birth abortion, allowing abortions through nine months, and requires insurance companies to provide coverage.

Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker who has campaigned to make Illinois the most progressive state in the country for abortion hugged and congratulated supporters of the bill on the Senate floor after the vote. Pritzker has vowed to sign it into law.

As CBN News reported, the bill known as the "Reproductive Health Act" is more extreme than the bill passed in New York earlier this year and would make Illinois "an abortion destination" for the entire country. Abortions would be allowed for any reason and at any time during pregnancy.

Among other provisions, the amended bill requires private health insurance companies that cover pregnancy-related benefits to cover abortions – even late-term abortions.

There are no abortion coverage exemptions for churches, religious nonprofits, or pro-life individuals and small business owners.

The bill even strikes current law that protects parents from having to pay for a child's abortion when performed without parental consent.


Democrat state Rep. Kelly Cassidy, the bill's sponsor, said, "This is treating abortion care like any other health care."

The real solution to this particular problem is to not have the problem in the first place: People should buy their own health care or health maintenance as they see fit; employers should be merely concerned with paying salaries for work performed. It's not like only workers need insurance or that if you quit your job you suddenly have no need for insurance.

We were talking about outlawing full term abortions which yes are also a fraction of 1%. By your reasoning, something that very rarely needs to be done, will none the less be illegal when it does need to be done.

You're getting on your high horse about something nobody is advocating. I don't think anyone is outright pro-abortion, let alone pro late term abortion. EVeryone knows there is an moral issue there.

If you outlaw late term abortions without exceptions you are likely causing more problems than you are preventing.

Is it essentially murder for a healthy, wealthy and attractive male to decide not to have children ?

Certainly there are plenty of woman that would gladly have children with such a guy. And plenty of souls lined up.

IT must be murder for such a guy to not have children, becasue clearly he could have many per year. And why limit it to one woman ? THat's a silly convention. Those souls are lined up wanting to become human. He's a selfish murderer if he's not spreading his seed in the most productive way possible.

IF a mans behavior and choices mean that humans that would have otherwise come in to existence, do not come in to existence, it's obviously murder.

It's more than 1% - even if you use 1%, we are talking about nearly 10,000 babies being ripped apart limb from limb every fucking year in the US. Babies that are more viable and more developed than my oldest child who was born premature and is completely happy and healthy today.

Not the same. But it seems to me that a fetus in it's early stages is a potential human more than it is a human.

How is the fact that it will be a human any different than the fact that if I have a lot of sex with a lot of women, new humans will come in to existence ? To knowingly and intentionally not follow my sexual instincts as much as I possibly can is preventing potential humans from coming in to existence.

One of the unique things about humans is that they plan, even such things as whether to have children or not.

Now don't get me wrong. I'm not pro-abortion. I would like to see abortions minimized. But I don't believe that making them illegal is the way to do that. And I don't believe that we know when a human becomes a human.

THat was my point. Who's to say that in the eyes of god, a mouse with it's mature mouse consciousness isn't more precious than a 7 week fetus ?

You can argue, "but the fetus is going to be a human. That's what makes it so much more special. IT's going to become a human." So ? When you "rub one out" and throw the sperm away, that was something that could have become a human too. That's why Catholics also say masturbation is a sin (but possibly also becasue they want more Catholics).

In any case food for thought for those of you with the bandwidth and processing power.

How about we just match our abortion laws to be more like Western Europe where they have alot of restrictions after the 1st trimester? Instead, radical Democrats in New York, Illinois, North Carolina, California.... are passing laws trying to push abortions well into the 3rd trimester for virtually any reason.

The Left are the extremists on this issue.

My kids weren't much more "human" the first weeks out of the womb as they were inside. They still needed constant care, protection and feeding and couldn't be "viable" without support from the parents.

Maybe the anti-abortion warriors are part of our overlords plan to see the US become essentially a third world country.

Every time that someone with deep emotional challenges, who has been knocked up by an even more dysfunctional asshole, and has just enough sense to know that they don't have the ability to raise a child well, and also just enough sense to know that maybe, just maybe some of her and her lovers emotional problems are not just environmental.

If a pregnant woman intuitively questions whether the baby would be healthy even if raised well by someone else, based on emotional or other potentially congenital problems that she and or the sperm donor have, who am I to stand in the way of her making an informed decision ? IF it's illegal, that's possibly just causing more crime and prison problems down the line.

With a choice between having new citizens that are due to wanted abortions that were prevented by law versus illegal immigrants ? I know which one I would rather see populating the future.

But the other thing is who actually thinks that exponential population growth is sustainable ? At some point we will adopt strategies for population stability or even shrinkage. The tough thin is that means economies not growing or shrinking too.

We can't have that. Therefore exponential population growth until it brreaks !!

Yeah, IL is fucked up.

No pension crisis here. Let's just give people free money and keep kicking the can down the road.
