I look at all these Republicans that swept into power 3 years ago promising economic improvement. Nothing passed, just attack after attack on women. Now they are seeing the first wave of opposition, and... they've seen nothing yet. If they keep trying for these laws, whether in NC or TX or wherever, good luck to them.

We... are watching.

this woman is a complete tool.  In her pro-abortion statement she said...

"This is how we make our state better. This is how we give our children a chance for a better life. This is only right.”"

By "a chance for a better life," I I guess she's referring to the children she didn't support killing because they were inconvenient.

I swear the divide is getting uglier and uglier!  I saw a fb clip that really sent chills up my spine - "If abortion is murder then a bl$w job is cannabalism", comparing the stop of life to a sex act is a new low for human rights.  What a shame, God bless the unborn!

Having been a PP volunteer for over a year and a half, I heard first hand the politics of those who oppose choice, and they are decidedly anti-child. Don't even go there.

To JB3: Conception is the direct result of "a sex act". Fellatio is also a sex act involving a component of conception. Without seeing the Facebook clip itself, it's hard for me to be sure but that may be the point. One could make the case that criminalizing the one is reason to criminalize the other. Out of idle curiosity, is sperm less "God blessed" than the unborn? And if so, why? I truly am perplexed that "pro-life" advocates seem more than willing to designate themselves as arbiters of what is moral and what is immoral, not just for themselves but also for others of whom they know little or nothing. If they believe so strongly that abortion is wrong, then they should never have one. Otherwise, they ought to butt out of what is a very intimate decision by a woman who has her own reasons for making a choice to terminate a pregnancy. It's also interesting that many "pro-lifers" are among the ones protesting most vociferously about intrusive "big" government. Go figure.

Pro-choice is all about the woman's right, You're absolutely right there. Pro-life is about the life inside her - Big, fat difference.

To JB3: So are you saying that "pro-lifers" are concerned about the life inside a woman's body and don't care about her particuarly? If so, I would certainly agree that the message being expressed is this: A fully sentient, fully formed human has less rights than a collection of undifferentiated cells (many do not discriminate between a blastocyst, an embryo, and a fetus). Just trying to figure out whether that's what you are saying. I know that many in the so-called "pro-life" movement do think that a woman is little more than a uterus if she becomes pregnant. Some of the more misogynistic also imply that by having any kind of sexual activity, a woman who becomes pregnant is "asking for it". I find that attitude appalling since no form of birth control save abstinence is 100% effective. Also, as Nelle points out, many of the "pro-lifers" are nowhere to be seen after a woman gives birth and must cope with sleep deprivation, physical exhaustion, and pure mess. To term that sort of mayhem "inconvenience" as some do, is unbelievably idiotic. Nobody who has ever been a new parent would so cavalierly dismiss the impact.

If it's a-okay to force a woman to use her body to provide life to a fetus before viability, then these "pro-life" people should be just fine with the government mandating that they provide blood, bone marrow, skin, a kidney, a lobe of the liver or lung to sustain the life of another.

Your blood, skin, kidney, liver etc belong to YOU iluvkrat. A pregnancy means another life is growing inside you hence a second set of all those organs, Just sayin'.
