is anyone else totally delighted with the term "womb babies"? I dunno - it just sort of rolls off the tongue like a delightfully crunchy sweet treat.

so somehow it makes sense for a woman (who most likely has other children) to die in childbirth and leave her children motherless and with a father who very possibly has no idea what hes doing. yeah, yeah that makes ALOT of sense. you can always have another child, but you can never replace a woman who already has impacted hundreds of lives, including her already born children.

these people suck.

I have a friend whose mother works for a car insurance agency, and it looks like those anti-abortion bumper stickers come with some costs: those people are always reporting claims on their keyed-up or otherwise vandalized cars.
Ah, I don't get people. Even the Bible says something about how life doesn't begin until blood starts to flow, and that's not until a couple weeks into pregnancy. Where'd this "life begins at conceptions" bullshit come from?

OK, that's 103 posts by the new tr*ll since in roughly 2 weeks - at $.50 per post that's $51.50 to my local abortion access fund. At this rate I'll be subsidizing an abortion every month! Thanks, efilorp4, for motivating me to give more to my favorite cause!

That's insane - so the mother could die giving birth, but who cares? The kid's still alive!

Even in traditional, Orthodox Judaism (and they sure as hell aren't pro-choice) if the mother's life is threatened, abortion is not only permitted, but required.

Just poking my head in as a nonYank to say keep up the good work, depressing though the whole dman situation might be. I spotted this in the Onion, and thought it might give you girls a wry chuckle, at least:

Not to go off on too much of a tangent, but I just saw this article in the NYTimes about Romanian orphanages. There's a quick mention in there that everything got started when birth control was banned. That thought just gives me chills.

Fuck. Ahh yes, I knew someone, who knoew someone who worked with an abstinence programme in the states, and among this group of pledge takers, there was an outbreak on anal gonorrhea. Hmmm.

That cartoon made me very sad. I can't believe that these people think this. Does no one recall that as soon as you say something is bad, that someone is going to go out and try it.

As for Purity balls, no comment, this who anti-life thing scares me. tremendously. I am close friends with someone, who now is his 30's and is financially sound, told me that he has been in three pregnany situations, when he was younger, two miscarriages and one abortion. He said that even now, he, as well as the partner at the time were prepared to raise a child. what about those young women who don't have anything? What are they supposed to do?

I also work for social assistance, I see first hand what happens when you have young women having many many children. It is sad that these woman do not have as many options as there non-social assitance counterparts. I also see what happens when women with addiction have 7,8 even 12 and 13 children, and every last one of them being taken away then being lost in the foster system. Then the anti-choicers don't give a shit about what happens to these children, they often times slip through the cracks, become used, abused and all those horrible things. Where are the anti-choicers then? Fucking assholes, only care in utero.

I have seen some people in this city with a bumper sticker that says "abortion, the worst form of child abuse" excuse me? I suppose that the children who were locked up in dog kennels and regularly beaten and made to eat their own feces and drink their own urine are in a much better situation. And those children who are adopted by pedophiles and put on line for dispicable and deplorable child pornography purposes, I suppose that they are also much better off. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

That Times article that they mention in the article made my skin crawl. So did the mention of "purity balls" where you attend with your father and he gives you a purity ring to give your future husband on your wedding night. That concept is too fucked up for me to wrap my head around. *shudders*

(sorry don't know how to make it purty :-)

If it's possiable I'm even more afraid than I already was. When is this going to end? And why do these people have so much power? It's scary.
