"The baby should stay alive unless there are outstanding medical risks for both the mother and the child. Lose one life instead of two. Only to be used in special cases where both mother and child will die if they go through with the birth"
"I honestly dislike abortion because I view it as legalized murder.I would never do it unless there were health reasons behind it,but I also believe that the right to make that choice should not be taken away.If a woman wants to abort a baby badly…"
""Since when is anyone qualified to say when a life is bad enough that no life at all would be better?"It seems we keep pointing this out, but to my recollection, no one has attempted to deny it, just ignore it, in this thread it seems"
"If you don't like abortion, you don't have to have one.
That's a stupid argument. How about we make it with lots of other laws. If you don't like murder, don't kill anyone. If you don't like theft, don't steal…"
"I am pro choice. I think that not everyone is qualified to be parents and children end up in foster homes or orphanages and they get a bad life. I think that if you aren't able to take care of a child, you shouldn't…"
"this is a semi-rational argument, but it suffers from the age old logical fallacy that suffering, especially potential, overrides the value of life itself. it should be a tough decision, but that is the point: you should feel very…"
"I do see what you mean, and apologize for being preemptively defensive. That was harsh of me. And yet hating me and everything I stand for is a trifle over-dramatic. However, I mean what I said. I could have worded it in a kinder way, but I think…"
"On the other hand, do you have a right to make that decision? IE do you have a right to look at someone's future life, and conclude it's so bad they should die, rather than experience it. And if you have that right, why is it okay to act…"
"Definitely pro choice. Imagine having a child and being to young/poor/sick/whatever to raise a child properly. What kind of life would a child lead if his/her mother doesn't have the money to feed her child properly. I realise that an abortion…"
"I pretty much think the same thing simply because of how obnoxious the line I have a uterus AND an opinion is. I'm all for feminism but it is enough that you have an opinion, you don't have to assume everyone will attack you for…"
"I was wondering if anyone had any reliable links/books/whatever that gave information on if, in fact, abortions are being readily used as birth control or not and in what areas this may or may not be happening. The only time I've ever…"
"i hope most dearly that you are making a jest at the last statement of the lady, not acting in seriousness. in the second case, i would ask you why it is wrong for her to be a woman who does not follow the stereotype we as a nation falsely…"
"I am female and pro-life. (I have a uterus AND an opinion.) I believe that it is not our place as human beings to snuff out the life of another. Pre-born children are in a different stage of development, but not any less human. Womens' rights…"
Erica's my name, and grammar is definitely not my forte. So for all the "grammar lovers" if you have a desire to pinpoint an error, or two please do! =)

If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Hmm. I think I'd have to go for a toss up between Ed, Roy and Al. Al is, as you put it, absolutely adorable and I just want to squish him! ^_^ I love Ed and Roy because they're both badass and frankly, if they asked me out for dinner I would have a hard time saying no ;)
