Drew, raspekt. beyond that, a lot of you need to get your shit straight.
imo, guys who are against abortion should do their part in preventing women from ever being put in a position where abortion would even be considered. if you're so against abortion, don't have sex. honestly, in most cases if a girl found out you were against abortion, she wouldn't sleep with you anyway, so if you want to give your dick a chance of ever getting wet, keep your stupid opinion to yourself. personally, i'm 100% pro-choice. i'm never going to tell anyone what they can or cannot do to their body and, frankly, i'll never be pregnant, so it's a topic i, as a guy, will never fully understand or appreciate. we humans have never had a real issue with killing other humans (let's be honest about it...), so the whole argument about whether or not the fetus is alive is moot. thousands of people are killed everyday around the world for far less legitimate reasons than saving some 16-year-old rape survivor from becoming a mother (ei- oil). i don't want to hear any bullshit about "if she didn't want a baby, she shouldn't have had sex" or "well, she needs to live with her mistakes". THAT'S BULLSHIT. if you are a guy, you will never understand what pregnancy is like, the toll it takes on a woman's body, and how the stigma that accompanies an unwanted pregnancy can ruin a person's reputation and sometimes their life, so shut the fuck up. abortion isn't about the baby- that ought to be fucking obvious. the baby dies- shit clearly isn't about that baby. it's about the mother and almost any doctor will tell you that even with a healthy pregnancy and delivery, their first priority is the mother's well-being. so, as much as the right-wing catholic retardards (if they knew anything, they wouldn't be catholic, so fuck 'em) want to turn this into a debate about the baby, IT ISN'T ABOUT THE FUCKING BABY. it doesn't matter if its little heart is beating or if it has fingernails or whatever- if the mother is at some kind of risk, if she's not suited to be a mother, of if the baby is a result of a rape or incest, abortion should absolutely be an option the mother should be able to consider.
anybody who says otherwise should just go play with used needles at an AIDS clinic.
"I have been an abortion provider since 1972. Why do I do abortions, and why do I continue to do abortions, despite two murder attempts?
The first time I started to think about abortion was in 1960, when I was in secondyear medical school. I was assigned the case of a young woman who had died of a septic abortion. She had aborted herself using slippery elm bark.
I had never heard of slippery elm. A buddy and I went down to skid row, and without too much difficulty, purchased some slippery elm bark to use as a visual aid in our presentation. Slippery elm is not sterile, and frequently contains spores of the bacteria that cause gas gangrene. It is called slippery elm because, when it gets wet, it feels slippery. This makes it easier to slide slender pieces through the cervix where they absorb water, expand, dilate the cervix, produce infection and induce abortion. The young woman in our case developed an overwhelming infection. At autopsy she had multiple abscesses throughout her body, in her brain, lungs, liver and abdomen.
I have never forgotten that case."
