    Um, yeah...Alabama

    Wow. Another reminder of why that state is to be avoided....

    what a selfish act by a bunch of people who really have no direct connection to the issue other than a belief formulated by an ancient text...

    There are a lot of states currently pursuing harsher restrictions. The Handmaid's Tale coming to real life...

    I saw a press conference with the representative in AL who wrote the bill- she said it is specifically written to be challenged up to the Supreme Court to force a challenge on Roe v. Wade.

    I think we all knew that was coming given the remake of the SCOTUS.

    I hope they stick with the "settled law" doctrine and strike down all these rogue attempts.

    There does need to be an exception for criminal acts as a causal factor.

    And the same people who push these laws are the same people who want to provide zero help to the resulting people needing assistance.

    Actually science is really what is driving the reversal of opinion on the subject. A fetus is now viable at earlier stages, heart beat and brain function are detectable and imaging has vastly improved to show, "Hey, that's a baby" at much earlier stages.

    So, you do not think the moderators would recognize this as political, religious or both?

    I get that, but that's not the issue.

    The issue is, its HER choice, period. Regardless of religion/political views. Who is anyone to judge someone's decision?

    Are these polliticians helping said woman in ANY way raising said kid, putting him through school, feeding him etc etc etc.

    I thought so.

    Back to my previous post - I didn't know this happened spontaneously and randomly.
    Last I checked, a pretty significant event needs to occur. This event doesn't accidentally happen. The entire POINT of the event, is to have happen, what apparently happened. So, what's the issue?

    I intentionally ride my bike over a cliff, then get mad that I got hurt from riding over said cliff? Who's fault is it that I intentionally rode over the cliff?

    But once it has happened, it has to be dealt with. "Your parents shouldn't have done that" isn't going to help the kid. I'm all for adoption, btw.

    In the vast majority of cases the woman made a prior choice did she not? In life there are choices and consequences to those choices. As far as raising the child, where the heck is the father? What are options for adoptions? Current waiting lists are somewhere between 2-7 years and have 1-2 million people on them. Inconvenient to carry a child to term to then give it up for adoption? Sure.

    Roe v Wade drew a line between a woman's rights and that of an unborn child. Science is suggesting that that line be moved. Remove that line? Both sides seem to want to do that, be it Virginia or Alabama. Both positions seem extreme to me.

    Give it the hook.

    Now, any of you guys against it, you have no business dictating what a woman can do with her uterus. Same with legislators. No business whatsoever.

    Exit this thread now. Science is just science, it's not suggesting anything because it's just data. The whole argument about when "life" start is what you're really talking about, and that's when people start showing their asses by talking about something they know nothing about.

    You mean assuming that you won't get fired from your job for being pregnant?
    and assuming you have any health insurance to cover prenatal care and delivery?
    and assuming that you can afford any kind of childcare?
    and asumming that the mother doesn't just flat out die during or just after childbirth since the US has appaling maternal mortality rates?

    Actually, if any tax dollars, or other forms of public financing are used to support, augment, subsidize, condone, or perform that operation, then yes, yes the public DOES have a say.

    You cannot confiscate portions of my life, in the form of money, and then use that any way you see fit while I have zero say in it.
