I am not very religous, I guess you asumed that by powerful force I meant God. I can understand that. But actually I believe in science more than God.

"So I guess the question is how can someone who is alive be for denying someone else the same."

I believe that two things cannot occupy the same body without the consent to do so. A fetus/embryo/baby uses a women body for life for 9 months and because of that I believe the women should be allowed to choose if that life can use her body or not.

"I think that I enjoy living very much and I would not deny any living thing the same. "

Do you eat meat? By eating meat you do know you denied a living thing life. Human or animal, eating meat means you deny something a life.

"On the other hand I do not have the right to tell anyone they have to give the same opportunities to someone that I would."

Which is why I am PC. I believe the women knows herself, her body and her life better than anyone else does which is why I believe she should be allowed to continue or not continue a pregnancy.

"I guess if an individual whether it be a man or woman feel ok about that than more power to them."
Both my husband and I agree that if I were to get pregnant I would have an abortion and I feel 100% ok with that. It is a decision we made together.

So then you would support a legislation that the father of an unborn child can

Although, if that is your joint decision, then why not have him get a vasectomy or you a tubal?

Very good points well taken. I think we should all feel comfortable with the choices we make. And as long as you do then it is the right decision.

I'm not serith, but to answer your question: "then why not have him get a vasectomy or you a tubal? Wouldn't that be better than making the choice to end a life if you already know that you would abort? "

It is very hard to get permanent sterilization when you are 25 and have no children. I have been trying for a few years and I've given up for now. DH is going to try to get sterilized instead, once we find a doctor to agree.

"As for your blinkie...doing all you can to piss off the religious right. You will have to work harder. I am not pissed."

Lol, do you represent all of the religious right?

I am only 24 and cannot get a tubal from anyone in my area.My husband is 28 and has no health insurance. I am sure he could get a vasectomy easier than I could a tubal but can't afford for him to have health insurance. The only reason I have it right now is because my parents pay for it.

(yours)>>>and whats good and right for you might not be what is good or right or me - and visa versa. That is why I believe in freedom of choice. Only each individual knows with full certinty what is thier own right life path.>>>

(mine)>>>We make choices everyday, sometimes good and right, sometimes bad and wrong, and those choices are different for everyone too.>>>

That's what I meant. I think abortion is killing. Nothing anyone says or tries to rationalize with me will change that. I am a Christian and that's how I feel. The Bible says that we can kill animals for food. That is not murder. To me abortion is is killing of a human, therefore murder, however, I decide that for myself. You decide for yourself. I am glad that we can have different opinions but still have the same view points. I believe in choice and I believe we choose for ourselves what determines what is right and wrong for ourselves.
