          Does this mean men should have a legal right to opt. out of parenthood? Why should men pay child support for kids they don't want. And if women are intelligent enough to make their own decisions, how did they get pregnant? An intelligent person would understand the need to take birth control.

            I am sure the Governor will adopt 100 new born babies. The showing by example. She will personally adopt 100 unwanted babies. Others have promised to help with this issue.

              I'm so glad someone said something on this. I am so SICK of the shame they want women who have had abortions to feel. We made a choice that was best for us, our future children, and my society that won't have to pay for me and my child when I cant finish school and need to live on welfare for the rest of my life with the child I dont want.

                    No, the anti-abortion crowd cherrypicks published science.. confirmation bias...

                    and as the blastula/zygote/fetus have no special rights or privileges over the woman's body... and abortion is just an abortion.

                  Until you are flat broke, no job, no husband, and two kids in tow it's NONE OF YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS. Women have been having abortions for thousands of years and will continue having abortions whether we like it or not. Before Roe vs Wade thousands of women died every year from botched abortions performed by themselves or average lay people but after Roe vs Wade women gained the legal right to have SAFE abortions performed by highly trained medical professionals who know what they're doing. Banning abortions would end up killing thousands of women every year AGAIN. You idiots care more about the tiny embryo than you do about the woman carrying it against her will. If the roles were reversed and men had to bear children we'd have abortion clinics on every street corner and abortions would be FREE.

                            The law has a loophole for the "Until she knows she is pregnant." So if the pregnant woman is not informed she is pregnant she can get an abortion whenever she would want. So she just has a trusted friend check the test and make the appointment. All she has to do is show up for her "Check Up" and done.

                              "the woman is known to be pregnant" not when she knows, that is a dishonest quote from planned parenthood. How can we know she is pregnant? did she use her reproductive system with a male reproductive system recently? has sperm gone into her uterus? Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone produced by the placenta after implantation. The presence of hCG is detected in some pregnancy tests - has her menstrual cycle been delayed by several days?
                              these are easy questions with easy answers - is she reproducing another living human being - what is an ultra-sound, if there is not a fetus, you can't abort what is not there..

                                        Hi! Literally every politician responsible for the abortion thing can drop dead. Anyone who tries to control women that blatantly deserves to be shot by a firing squad.

                                        (If no firing squad is available, I'm free!)

                                          imagine controlling another female so much that the female in question does not even leave the womb alive.

                                          Placenta Party!
                                          How many of you have seen the off Broadway smash comedy hit: Placenta Party?
                                          It's a daring comedy about abortion!
                                          It's about a pregnant unwed teen age girl called Love Child... half of her
                                          friends-Pro- Choice want her to have an abortion and the other half want her to have a baby- Pro-Baby.

                                          Love Child's Pro-Choice friends plan an abortion party for her in which she will be smashing a Pinata shaped like a human baby. The Pinata will be filled with condoms of various kinds including French Ticklers... to make a contraceptive point or something.

                                          Now during the height of the party when the PC girls are drinking and
                                          drugging and carousing and debauching, and 'jest' generally turning
                                          responsibility into a parody, Love Child's Pro-Baby friends arrive and they have brought a famous Chef...

                                          Chef asks them if they would like to eat a meal that they grew themselves! That's gross and disgusting said LC's PC friends. It's cannibalism and against the law!

                                          "Only a bunch of Pro Choice Baby Killers would even think I was speaking of a baby in the womb", said Chef, "I'm talking about a different cut of meat. I'm talking about something that is legal to eat and is quite a treat. It's called After Birth... I call it Gourmet Placenta or GP which will be a meal worth gabbing about!"

                                          "And girls I jest happened to have brought a human after birth with me that I will teach you to prepare and then we'll cook it up and eat it up."

                                          The points is that if U do not carry your baby to term, you will
                                          never be able to celebrate with a Placenta Cook-Off meal and know the nutritious thrill of eating yourself... literally.

                                          If U do not carry your child to term. no placenta party for you. We even provide celebrity chefs!

                                            The fact that most of the placental cells have the fetus’ DNA is important medically. "eating yourself... literally." NO, you are wrong here.

I'm sure there's another reason that i just haven't heard yet.

Most of us true christians are against abortion...that doesn't mean we have fallen for Don the Con (who has probably paid for a few abortions in his time I'm sure). Abortion is wrong just as surely as trump is a crook. Reproductive rights in this day & age should mean you have the right to birth control....the right to not get pregnant if you're not ready to reproduce. There is a big difference between preventing pregnancy & murdering a baby. Life begins at the DNA test .We ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE WOMAN'S BODY...WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALS BODY. If we treated cancer the way some politicians want to talk about a pregnancy , it doesn't count until it's big enough to pop out of the womans belly & be seen from outside....we'd have a lot more cancer deaths. But NO we recognize that cancer is cancer even when it's small & we treat it as such. If you want to keep YOUR body from reproducing...either dont have sex or have safe sex. But if you're too irresponsible to do murdering a child should not be an option in a civilized society.

Having a heart for children would mean raising our children knowing the simple difference between good and bad. Protecting women's rights would not be an issue if women were safe because they were protected by men and woman who were raised with the knowledge and wisdom that comes from drawing a line in the sand between what is good (kind) and what is bad (hurtful). Apparently, it is going to take fathers and mothers, brothers and sister's experiencing the full consequences of their fellow mankind's actions before our society will stop wasting lives talking about apples and oranges and choose what is right for all of our children. Improve all life by drawing a line in the sand between what is good and what is bad. Only than can we begin to truly improve all mankind.
