    Actually my husband noticed at the 2008 GOP convention that the far right christians had take over the convention. I guess he was right it is their crazy political party now. I have never voted straight democrat until this year.

    We wonder why they are saying this abhorrent stuff in this day and age, but the ultra right-wing constituents they are dog whistling to, eat it up. This is good old fashioned slut-shaming, she-was-asking-for-it, old testament talk, and they love it.
    It makes me very afraid.
    You are what you dare.

    I understand that the ultra right-wing eats it up. I get that. What I don't get is all the millions of other people who still support the people with those views. Why should they change? They can be as primitive and hateful as they like, people are still going to watch Romney fawn all over Mourdock and sing his praises, yet they might even consider still voting for him.

    This thread is sickening. 55 million children destroyed from the 1970's till now is not about rape.

    All of these women screaming about women's rights, and all of the while not a peep about the rights of the child. Look at yourself in the mirror and say to yourself, "This is not about me. It is not all about me."

    There is too much proof that its not just a blob of tissue, but the rights of the mother are more important than the one pending a decision, huh?

    Women's rights, but none of these children are ever possibly women, right?

    Oh, I know, how dare I humanize a... human?

    Threads like this show that "women" are as selfish as it can get, and "rights" are only for those who can argue for them.

    Look at the thread title. The subject under discussion is the Mourdock and Republican beliefs about women and rape. Go start an abortion thread if you want, but don't hijack this thread. Read the title.

    Sickening because I object to being told by some old white man that God intended me to be raped & pregnant? "Screaming" about women's rights? No one here is "screaming." You're using that word to diminish legitimate discussion and try to tag it as emotional instead of factual. Won't work.

    Yeah, I'm "screaming" about women's rights. The subject here is not unborn children. It's Mourdock.

    Try to comprehend. The poster commented that Mourdock et al say things like this because their right-wing constituents LIKE it. That was extremely relevant to the topic. Please tell me where is the hate & selfishness? Are you upset that women hate being told to quietly accept rape & pregnancy because it's God's will? Is that what's bothering you? It is, isn't it? You think women are "selfish" because they don't want to keep a pregnancy from a rapist. I admit some women would. That's their right. It's their choice & I would support them. The point is, it's their CHOICE.

    I know far too many rape victims that dont associate themselves with the "poor me" type woman. I know so many "poor me" women who havnt had anything really even go wrong in their lives who advocate abortion and encourage people to use it in their own lives.

    That is terrible.

    There are a couple of postings about how being pregnant was expensive and cost their career to suffer.

    Those are the top reasons for abortion statistically.

    Like I said, selfish.

    The OP asked for THOUGHTS, not AGREEMENT necessarily.

    Ok. My THOUGHT is that being a victim is a choice mentally.

    You can be a victim a rape, but you don't have to live as a victim.

    First, I'd like to see your proof that a fetus in the first trimester is more than a blob of cells. Pretty please?

    Second, how do you justify forcing women who don't want/can't afford children to give birth? We all know how messed up the adoption/foster care system is. We all know that there are few things worse than growing up with parents that don't want you.

    Wouldn't it be better for all if women who want children have children and those that don't, don't? Where is the value in forcing a woman to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term? I mean, actual value, not the slut-shaming sex penalty that the Conservatives all adore.

    First. You an have an abortion up to 7 months. After kicking and hiccups and even after a point where if the baby was born it could survive without you.

    Second. My own child is my husband but she is also me. I see me, my mother, even my grandmother in her. To destroy a perpetrator in your own flesh and blood there is half of you that goes with it.

    Third. Adoption is not only an option but people are WAITING on big long lists.

    I'd like to hear your opinion on this;
    do you feel a rape victim should have to have the baby?

    What if it is due to incest?

    What if the rape "victim" (quoted since you feel it is choice to feel victimized) is 10 years old; should she still be required to give birth? What if she is 8 years old?

    What if carrying the child to term will have serious consequences to the mother's health, including possible death?

    Should the life of the baby override the feelings/mental or physical health of the mother?

    Then why are there still children waiting to be adopted in this country?

    Not legal in most states except under absolutely ridiculously extreme circumstances. This is where the anti-choice argument falls apart - women don't have abortions because they are funsies. It is a horrible, painful choice. It's pretty safe to say that if a pregnancy is carried beyond the first trimester, it is a wanted pregnancy and will only be terminated in extreme and dangerous circumstances.

    So, you don't have proof? Yeah, didn't think so.

    Second. My own child is my husband but she is also me. I see me, my mother, even my grandmother in her. To destroy a perpetrator in your own flesh and blood there is half of you that goes with it.
    I'm pretty confused by this statement, particularly your use of the word "perpetrator", but whatevs. It sounds like you love your child dearly and that is a great thing. Pretty irrelevant to the conversation at hand though.

    Third. Adoption is not only an option but people are WAITING on big long lists.
    And some people don't want to go through the process of pregnancy and giving birth. Their body, their right. From what I understand, being pregnant isn't exactly a walk in the park. It also isn't cheap. Nobody should be forced to carry a pregnancy to term.

    50 million plus? We obviously are way beyond discussing health issues being a main concern.

    The questions you are asking have long been the foothold of every abortion argument for this country.

    For that reason alone I wont even play a game of "What if?"

    What if we gave unborn children the same protection we give the lowest form of life here in our country?

    If you are willing to go out of state I have actually known women to abort over 6 months, yes.

    Even ONCE is a travesty.
