Oh gosh of course not. Two humans undergo the abortion, only one survives. Why would anyone take support for such a thing as support for such a thing?

We know those killed are not trees or puppies, because one of the common arguments for abortion is not having people around who will cost you money.

Everyone in this country can get medical care. I've seen homeless people pulled from the bushes against their will and forced to go to the hospital.
Anyone who goes to the ER will get medical treatment.

Often the only other choice is for both to die.

Do you mean to speak of a human embryo and a woman in whose body it is developing?

What else would I be discussing? We're discussing humans aborting their own children, after all.

I don't think we are discussing the same thing (conceptually).

We are discussing a woman and an embryo.

You are discussing murder.

That's fine, and I don't expect to come to broad agreement with you here. I just don't appreciate being told I'm intending for "someone to die."

I'm not concerned with what you appreciate, or the mental gymnastics you're happy to engage in in order to assauge your conscience.

We know some people do not exist today because of abortion. We're told this is a cost benefit, specifically noting the people not born 'save us money'. We know women who don't choose to kill their own kids can sue for wrongful death of their *child* even when it's an embryo in event of a crime or accident. There are many more instances legal and scientific which clearly establish we're talking about stopping unique, human individuals from being born by killing them before they can be born.

We all know what we're talking about, and as you note, you want a 'conceptual' difference in place so you can support what you support in spite of the objective reality of what is taking place, and that something is the fully intentional end of the life for a human being. So you don't have to 'look at it that way'.

How I avoid being accused of supporting murder, is by choosing not to support it, not by figuring out some way to claim killing innocents as the intended end result isn't murder.

My conscience is clear; no gymnastics needed. After all, I'm not the one falsely attributing intentions to others.

In my view, you are entitled to hold and follow your own conscience regarding abortion, and others should be allowed the same. As we are speaking about an issue which defies concrete analysis regarding the "personhood" of an embryo, and while it is an undeniable given that an embryo is a part of a woman's body, it seems immoral to violate a woman's sovereignty.

Actually the thread was about Planned Parenthood. Abortions are an incredibly small part of what PP is all about (3%) and even then only after the pregnant client has been informed of ALL her other choices and has insisted on an abortion.

Whether you, I or anyone else agrees with that choice, once a pregnant woman has made that choice an abortion is going to occur.

The bulk (as in 97%) of what PP does is provide healthcare to low income women who quite likely would not receive it otherwise.

That sounds just fine on "paper", but the reality is that low income women, pregnant or not, are not going to receive long term specialized women's healthcare in an ER.

If you truly believe that is the proper place to go then you are just revealing how little you understand about women's healthcare and what Planed Parenthood is all about.

You are not alone, as each time this subject comes up many of the same people reveal how little they know about the subjects.

The reality is that abortions are in fact legal, have been performed since virtually the beginning of time, and will continue to be done.

With the care PP provides many lives are saved, abortions averted and women's health is vastly improved.

Feel free to push your beliefs in thread after thread, year after year. The bottom line is they are in fact legal and they are not your choice to make. They will continue to occur.

Given that you've been ranting on this subject for many years, perhaps you should take your personal anti-abortion campaign somewhere where your "message" can be heard in a more effective arena, rather than on an off topic forum of a radio control forum primarily populated by middle aged men.

Then again, you'd have a far less "willing" audience.
