I'm not surprised at all at the controversy surrounding the Focus on Family ad that will air on the Super Bowl. Nor am I surprised that ABC News, a liberal cesspool, would air the outraged comments of N.O.W. and Dan Harris shaking his head and saying something to the effect that it's a shame that such a "divisive" ad would air during the Super Bowl. In that same episode of ABC News, we see the hidden camera video of cows being abused by farmers. Here, you can tell that the producers and newscasters are uniformly condemning the farmers. There's no opposing views from the farmers. It's so typical of ABC News and the liberals to uniformly condemn cruelty to animals (which I do too) yet completely ignore the pain, suffering, and murder of children in the womb.

Everyone seems to be forgetting about the torture and murder of millions of children in abortions. There's a heartbeat at 6 weeks gestation and abortions are routinely performed at 14 weeks, 16 weeks, 20 weeks, when it is clear that a fetus can feel pain and will fight for his or her life during an abortion. There is no one abortion method that does not cause a fetus incredible pain and suffering -- saline injections burn the skin off a living fetus, suction curette rip the limbs off a baby one by one, all without any anesthesia.

We are living through the genocide of millions of innocent children. I truly believe abortion will come to an end in this society as more and more people become aware of what happens during an abortion and technology allows us to understand more about babies in the womb. Is there really any rationale to allowing a woman to have an abortion at 19 weeks when we know that a baby born at 19 weeks has survived outside of the womb? Should a person be allowed to choose to murder a child simply because they WANT to?

It's obvious to us in the 21st century how wrong the Germans and Austrians were to just stand there and let the Holocaust happen right before their eyes. What we are doing right now with respect to abortion is absolutely the same thing. We are just as guilty as those who stood by and did nothing to help the victims of the Holocaust. When abortion is gone and your children and grandchildren learn about our generation, what will you say to them when they ask you where you were during all of this. What did YOU do to stop it?

Really? When? Got some proof? TIA.

Is this a rhetorical question?

<<>>

Wow. Just wow...

I refrained from engaging in sexual intercourse until I was 21 years old and in a committed relationship. I married my only sexual partner. I used birth control meticulously and responsibly until the very day I decided it was okay for me to become pregnant. I only had as many babies as I could afford to raise properly, and decided to stop when my pregnancies exacted a toll on my own health. I firmly intend to teach my children that they don't need to have sex to be accepted, popular or cool, but that if they do, they MUST protect themselves from disease and pregnancy. I belong to a church that has as one of its cornerstones a belief in comprehensive sexual eduction, beginning in kindergarten. My children, and I and my spouse are/will be active participants in this program. I have volunteered and contributed financially to Planned Parenthood in three different states in the US, in order to make family-planning measures more accessible to young people. I have been a teacher of unwed and teen moms and their babies, and have worked hard to help them have equal opportunities.

How about you?

Your refusal to even so much as reveal your stance on hormonal birth control (which also ends life) ... despite having been asked to do so repeatedly... makes me marvel at this attempt to finger point.

I believe in supporting the living breathing woman and if she walking & talking children that depend on her they come first. Have you EVER lost anyone in your family to a illegal abortion? Well I have, and I miss her every day. She was a cousin who was a born with a birth defect that was passed from father to daughter, mother to son. When she became pregnant the state told her and my aunt that wasn't a good enough reason to have a abortion and somehow there was illegal one happen. All I remember was she bleed to death. She would now be in her 60's and she was more like a sister to us then just a cousin.

Your post is full of misinformation and missing some facts.

Do you plan on returning to respond to questions from the rest of us, or do you plan to play stealth bomber again?

Since you never follow up your diatribes with actual debate, I'm going to bestow the following on all future threads you start:

Those are misnomers, all of them. There are no "children" murdered in abrotion. Embryos or fetuses are killed.

<>

Actually, that's NOT clear. The best data out there suggests that pain is not felt until after the third trimester begins. Have links, will pst upon request.

<>

Not murder a child- but we've already established abortion does not kill children. So going with the FACT that abortion kills embryos and fetuses, sure. A woman retains the right to choose the short and long term risks with which she prepared to accept, and IMHO, at any point during that pregnancy. To deny her those is to o9nfringe on her rights to autonomously administer her won health care, the privacy in which to do so and encroached on her liberty and personhood- all of which are not granted to zygotes/embryos and fetuses.

"There is no one abortion method that does not cause a fetus incredible pain and suffering -- saline injections burn the skin off a living fetus, suction curette rip the limbs off a baby one by one, all without any anesthesia. "

Incorrect. RU486 induces a miscarriage and causes no pain. Plus, it is done LONG before a z/e/f even has pain receptors, thus, it cannot feel pain.

Yeah.

Are you aware you do more to undermine your cause than actually help it?

It helps in debate to deal in fact. Most abortions are painless to the fetus because they simply do not have the body parts necesarry to process pain. Why harp on something that science had repeatedly shown to be untrue? It only weakens your own stance.

If the only reason you are so against it is because of fetal pain then you should really rethink your stance.

If there are other reasons why not go into them instead of spouting incorrect information? It really is helpful to debate

( I'm not surprised at all at the controversy surrounding the Focus on Family ad that will air on the Super Bowl. )

Neither am I, given that it's a complete reversal of their policy that banned the UCC's commercial in 2004.

( It's so typical of ABC News and the liberals to uniformly condemn cruelty to animals (which I do too) yet completely ignore the pain, suffering, and murder of children in the womb. )

It's typical of a PL to push forced childbirth and ignore mainstream medical recommendations for public health.

( Everyone seems to be forgetting about the torture and murder of millions of children in abortions. )

PLs seem to forget that there is a difference between not having a baby and torturing and killing an infant. They also ignore the fact that fetuses do not have the nervous structure until 20 weeks gestation at the earliest- Long, long after 98% of abortions are performed. Your hyperbole does not make you any less inaccurate. Ignoring facts is central to the PL yelling, so I should not be surprised and your fact-impaired post.

( We are living through the genocide of millions of innocent children. )

To compare women not having babies to genuine genocide is not only innacurate, but insulting to the people of Rwanda, and Jews in Europe. I have ancestors that died in the Holocaust. Take that PL talking point and flush it down the toilet with the rest of your baggage.

I work to keep the toll of dead and injured women from reaching the Pre-Roe days. I am an activist - who listens to physicians, not screaming people that would rather spend their time calling women names than actually doing something to help children that are here, and help create a society that supports women who want to be mothers.

All the PL orgs that I see decry working mothers, single mothers - they just want them to turn their healthy white babies over to white Christian couples, and forget about them if they don't.

What are YOU doing to stop neglect and abuse of children? What are YOU doing to stop the obstacles for mothers who choose to have a baby? All I can see is shaming, blaming and name calling.
