  •  And many "pro-lifers" are fine with the death (14+ / 0-)

    penalty, declaring bullshit wars and "stand your ground".  They're fine with denying people healthcare, fine with gutting food safety regulations, fine with eliminating OSHA, fine with killing the whole fucking planet to get a few more barrels of oil.

    But choosing not to carry a five-week-old fetus to term?  You're a murderer.

    Fuck them.

    •  Because they all fit your stereotype (0+ / 0-)

      not that youd talk to "them".. because they are "other" and of course Evil. But you feel how they know so .... just dumb.

      •  Actually, I know and regularly talk to a lot of (0+ / 0-)

        them.  My tone is respectful, because I do see them a (mostly) good people at heart.  I just fundamentally disagree with them on a number of issues, and some of the internal inconsistencies drive me nuts - hence some ranting here when I'm among friends.  I don't see them as dumb or evil, but I do see that they're getting a lot of misinformation.

        And though I think we probably won't ever see eye-to-eye on abortion, they probably can be brought around to agree about healthcare for all, safety regulations and a few other issues.

        •  Youre tone is incredibly condescending (0+ / 0-)

          I doubt seriously you talk to any of these people in a serious way.

          Im in neither camp on abortion. We have been forced into an idiotic, destructive false dichotomy by extremist Nutjobs on both sides.

          I have friends and family who are very prolife and for very moral reasons. I have friend and family who are prochoice for very moral reasons. None of the above are evil or want "men to control womens bodies" or "to make abortion the new birth control " as the absolute batshit crazy extremes paint the other side.

          But there will continue to be pain and suffering because these nuts have their reactionary, emotion boners for this issue. They get off on it.

          If adults were in charge some abortion would be legal, some would be entirely illegal and defined as murder. All children would be cared for financially and otherwise and a woman wouldnt have to see a pregnancy as something to celebrate and dread at the same time. But we cant have that because the emotional masterbation and hate would have to end.

          •  You don't know me, and you don't know my family. (0+ / 0-)

            You're choosing the wrong person to lecture.  I'll let it go at that.

            •  I didnt intend it to sound (0+ / 0-)

              like i was lecturing the actual intent was to reflect how your post sounded. I do apologise if i came across wrong. I do that more than a bit.

              It sounds like youre saying "we must correct our lessers in the correct way of thinking". We need more humans talking and fewer issue-extremists and politicians trying to manipulate people. Right now in america there are single parents living in hell, homeless children and families, people being pushed to abortions they dont want and pushed away from abortions they are desparate for so a tiny percentage of whackjobs whos only real concern  are their emotional needs can get their rocks off.

              Wouldnt you rather live in a world where every kid had a healthy happy childhood, pregnancy wasnt something to be terrified of, where all legitimate abortion was legal , safe, inexpensive and all illegitimate abortion was outlawed?
