How do you change you mind so completely?

I lost some family members to heart problems so I try to take good care of my heart. I don't see that changing much ever. It's a shame he seems to have forgotten his past.

I have no problem with someone being prolife, but how about pro life for both mother and baby?

"Pro-Life" means believing that two deaths are preferable to one, so long as one of the deaths is the woman involved.

"Pro-life" means believing that people will stop having sex that doesn't lead to babies, if try to inflict as many horrific consequences on a woman that has sex as possible. Including but not limited to: increased risk of STDs, increased risk of unplanned pregnancy, and forced childbearing.

"Pro-Life" means believing that a woman who listens to them and has a baby is then on her own, and will be judged harshly if she doesn't give the baby up for adoption or marry as soon as possible.

That's like saying that someone isn't volunteering their kidney because it's "inconvenient."

I happen to think that chilbearing is so incredibly sacred, important and life altering, that it should never be perverted by forcing it on someone. I would never force

I do not drop by this board that often, so I don't know if you are a newbie, a regular or somewhere in the middle, but it has been a while since someone has expressed MY views on abortion as eloquently as you do.

Thanks,
