CV (concerned voter) - November 1

I'm going to get lynched for this, but here goes: so many women on here talk about abortion, and so many more comment on how wrong it is. I just hope we can all remember how wrong abortion is when we go to the polls to choose our next president. And incase anyone is going to reply to me that I've never been there, oh yes I have. At an early age, I used my right to choose to kill my unborn child because I didn't think I was ready. What a stupid immature excuse to do the inexcusable. That haunts me to this day!! It is 15 years later, and I hate that our laws allowed me to do such a cruel and vicious thing. I picture all the time what my life would be like with that child in it, and I'll never know. The only choice I should have been given was to either keep it and raise it, or give it up for adoption. And even if you are pro-choice where early abortion is concerned, only the WORST kind of person would be for partial birth abortion. That isn't even killing a fetus, that is killing a baby who is far enough along to live outside the womb. Please ladies (and men), let's re-elect our president. He has made huge strides toward banning partial birth abortion, a SICK AND TWISTED procedure! And if given the chance, I feel certain he can put a law into place making this procedure illegal. If you have never seen a pba, look around on the internet. It won't take you long to get disgusted and sick to your stomach!!!!

I am happy that I had my abortion and not haunted in the least. I am ashamed that I got pregnant in the first place but pleased with my decision to end the pregnancy and relationship. Selfish? You bet. It was the right thing to do in my situation. It barely hurt more than a period and I recovered quickly. I did not see the blood or the embryo as the pro-lifers want you to believe. Abortion clinics make sure that your emotional health is accounted for. Good luck to those who choose to end their pregnancy. It is your choice and sometimes it is the right decision.

I myself would never ever have an abortion, because of my religeous beliefs, but I God did give us the right to make our own choices, so i think a person should be able to decide, anyways they are the ones who have to deal with it. Also, I think it would be a lot more dangerous to make it illegal because, if a person really wants to get rid of the baby they will find a way to get rid of it. like i said i would never have an abortion, but then again I dont know what it would be like to have been raped and forced to keep the baby. This is america and we are free, free to have our own beliefs, and not everyone shares the same ones so to each her own, right?

That didn't take long! I am a "pro-lifer" who happens to have been through the horror of an abortion. And consider it unusual to get a clinic who considered your emotional health. The clinic I went to saw it necessary to make me feel ashamed and feel guilty (rightfully so), and I DID see everything. It was disgusting. Also, I was sick for a week. I could barely walk for 3 days. That isn't the issue I am addressing though. It's mainly partial birth abortions. SICK SICK SICK!! And NEVER the right decision. It is an actual baby at that point! Surely even you "pro-choicers" can see that. You don't have to stop a beating heart to avoid raising a baby when you aren't ready. That's what adoption is for! My experience is mostly why I am now pro-life. Aside from that, my belief in God is enough to let me know it is wrong. No, I'm not a bible beater, I'm just a level-headed Christian. Please don't condemn me for that.

We're not talking about extenuating circ_mstances here. Rape is another story. I'm talking about girls who decide they don't want to have a baby just because it would ruin their social life, or women who don't want to "give up their body". etc. etc. The selfish reasons! And yes, it is a free country, so give those babies the freedom to live!! For a woman to take the life of their child takes away that child's freedom you speak of!

Partial birth abortions should be illegal unless the mothers life is in danger. I am very pro-choice and VERY against PBA's. I am against abortion after the first trimester. I think 12 weeks is plenty of time to decide if you want to keep the baby.

By the way, rape is addressed in the President's amendment. It is my understanding that rape victims would not be forced to keep it.

E, I am glad to hear you say that. Even though I am pro-life altogether, I am only pa__sionate and opinionated about pba's. thank you for saying that.

I do not vote in presidential elections based on abortion views. I think there are many other important issues that take precedence.

 

E - November 1

I think that abortion clinics themeselves are against PBA's and 2nd trimester abortions. Mine pushed me hard to end the pregnancy as soon as possible. They didn't want to touch me otherwise. They would have but clearly did not want to. I can understand now that I have an 18 week old baby in me.

I do not vote solely on that, either. However, that and other moral issues are a big part of how I vote. In addition to the fact that Kerry is so wishey washey that he is highly volatile and unreliable. But that's just an opinion. I am ent_tled to that, as all of you are ent_tled to your own. I just wanted to state my feelings, not spark a heated debate.

 

Dez - November 1

To not want to spark heat, you kinda brought up a pretty big controversal issue, lol. its ok everyone just wants to say how they feel.

I agree with you CV but on this earth this day and age there are so many wrongs it is hard to make a Right anymore I would never have a abortion myself i look at my children and could never consider it because i would be terrified that i would have the same regrets you have so long after....i hope that everyone thinks long and hard tommorow before voting and chooses what they think is best for themselves i know that i will and maybe even what is best for our children and our childrens children because believe it or not in the long run our decision on who is president come january when they say those words to be swore in they will effect our childrens lives forever even when we are gone Good luck to all and Great Guts CV i commend you for your courage
