Nope- wrong. Your opinion is totally more valid- over YOUR health and body. But never over mine.

Sure I do. Due to the inherent short and long term risks associated wit either continued gestation and childbirth or abortion I have EVERY right in the world to choose the set of risks I am willing to assume.

And I am opposed to the indenturement of every women's womb, so I am in full support of FOCA. Funny thing is- my stance respects your options- yours does not.

Well, I have no problem with you sending red envelopes everyday if you want.

Actually, the unborn child IS my body. It is intimately connected to my body, feeding off of my body and needs MY body to survive. That makes it MY body. Therefore, it is MY decision as to how to treat it medically.

Once science has found a way to safely remove a weeks old fetus from the pregnant mother and either place it in the womb of another woman or gestate it by other means, then we can talk about making abortion illegal. Until then, it has to remain a choice of the pregnant woman because she has to have choice over things that affect her own body.

I have to ask too, because I'm always curious as to how PL people look at this... how exactly do you expect a woman who is forced to gestate an unwanted pregnancy to always do what's in the best interest of the fetus for the nine months it takes to gestate? Meaning, if a woman is feeling hostage to her own body, what motivation does she have to eat right? What motivation does she have to avoid alcohol and drugs? What motivation does she have to quit smoking? How are you going to ensure the health and well-being of all these unwanted, unborn fetuses?
