    Does he keep his little blue pill between his knees to prevent pregnancy from his “woody”??

    Let’s add to the population, poverty, and illiteracy stats. After all, God deems it so. Alleged.

    Straw man: Taxpayer funded abortion.

    Eryx….the Christian religion was always given exemption from certain taxes, while salary officials pay income and social security personal taxes.

    The rational has always been that while a local church does not receive particular government benefits, costing the taxpayers nothing, the teachings benefit society by encouraging lawabiding citizens who usually do not require police expenditures, or welfare spending, etc…

    Local and groups of churches do offer services to the poor and to the needy and also help in disasters…..in Katrina the Salvation Army and church groups did more to help people than the feds or state, in the early aftermath of the floods.

    if you tax churches, it will set off consequences of new activities such as political participation….more like the Pre-Revolutionary churches activity in bringing about the separation from the oppressive English government…

    @disgustedtaxpayer

    p.s. One reason tax revenue is not as much as it could have been is the loss of millions of abortions done in this nation since January 1973. Our missing never-allowed-to-be-born taxpayers.

    but our form of government doesn’t work the way you think, Eryx…..if others do not pay taxes it in no way means I “have to pay more”! The IRS rate is set and is supposed to be the same rate on income as everyone else and the government doesn’t “own” the money until taxes due are paid.

    Wow SKP TomV, that is some incendiary language. I might add that poor people who accidentally get pregnant are about equal in number to the wealthy ones. Only the wealthy ones pay for their own abortions. And no one is the wiser. But morality my donkey.

    The callous inhumanity of your statement just boggled my mind. Just…. wow. Please tell me you are not a Christian.

    Abortion is only a small part of the services performed by Planned Parenthood. If you would go to one and ask about their full range of services, you’d see that. In addition to providing birth control, they provide basic health care (screenings, vaccines, physicals, et cetera), reproductive health care, STD testing, education, and a wide range of counseling services. They are there for the people who need them.

    But then by the looks of your post, you’re not really interested in anyone who helps others.

    As usual, people aren’t arguing the main issue about abortion: Is a fetus a human life? Looked at through this lens, all the other arguments become secondary. Can a woman kill a human being because she does not want them? Can she kill them because they will cause her financial hardship? Can she kill another person because she has medical issues? Of course not. On the other hand, If a fetus is nothing more than a fleshy growth, then what right does anyone have to tell someone else to have a simple procedure to get rid of something she does not want, would be a financial burden, and cause a health risk? No sane person would take such a stand.

    Same with the terms “pro-choice” and “pro-life.” I wish people would stop hiding from what they are really talking about. All laws limit choice. Legal issues around assisted suicide, marijuana use, or unlawful medical procedures are all about whether a choice should be made that ultimately affects what you can do with your body. Pro-life people tend to differ if that life belongs to a criminal on death row or a soldier being sent off to war.
    So, should we assign the notions of human life and human rights to a fetus? I’m frankly I’m ambivalent. We kill all the time, so the fact that a fetus is biologically living is not enough. Do we call it human and give it those rights? That’s the debate I’d like to see taken up.

    As to Clark Kent’s argument that only women have the right to decide this issue – since as far as I know none of us here have the power to decide this issue, it appears he is more offended that a man is expressing an opinion he does not like on something he views as only about a woman’s right. Well, Clark, how dare you decide for women that they are overwhelmingly pro-choice? I will still deplore genocide in Africa, although I am not African. I will support gay rights although I am not gay, and I will support free speech – regardless of gender – even when I disagree with it.

    “Tax payer funded planned parenthood, no tax money does not go directly to abortions but abortions are in the budget. "
    - Then you obviously do not want any taxpayer money to go into private insurance. Even the RNC has an insurer that does provide coverage for abortions. So the solution is obviously single payer.

    - And in contrast, all taxpayer money should be removed from Faith Based Initiatives, since SOME money might go to anti-gay churches and gays are citizens of the United States protected by the 1st & 14th Amendment. Hey, your logic.

    - I’ll save you some time for your next response: “Blah blah blah one note song.”
    - And my next response: “Blah blah blah one note ‘wah liberals and mommy government’ blah blah blah.”

    Harley is clearly full of it on this issue. He’s never been one allow facts to sway his “beliefs” and it seems double for this issue. He will hate on what he want’s to hate on.

    There’s more churches in this world than Christian churches receiving taxpayer handouts. You’re full of it.

    noverltman….“Only the wealthy ones pay for their own abortions.”

    The topic was: ‘the burden on society and mother and father’.
    You are off topic. no comment.

    jase99… “The callous inhumanity of your statement just boggled my mind. Just…. wow. Please tell me you are not a Christian.”

    Let’s look together at a situation that occured 2,000 years ago:
    Mary was getting married to an honorable man. She got pregnant out of wedlock. This was a disgrace to everyone. Joseph’s honorable choice would have been to turn his back and let Mary have a life of misery.

    Planned Parenthood would have aborted Jesus the Christ.

    The Bible records that the fetus, John the Baptist, recognized Mary when Mary visited an old Elisabeth. Elisabeth declares: “…blessed is the fruit of thy womb…the mother of my LORD…” (Luke 1:42-43)

    Clearly, there is a distinct individual with personality and memory in the womb.

    Christians are thankfull that Planned Parenthood was not around, then.

    Eryx…“There is a failure rate for all forms of contraception, dumb@SS.”

    You should be flagged for resorting to name calling.

    Please present STATISTICS showing the percentage of persons going pregnant to PP that were following correct procedures for preventing pregnancy at the time of passion.

    My unconfirmed impression is that the stats will be very low. Hence, they are brainless.

    I know, no fair including incest. And when a female sceams RAPE, that requires a conviction before being excluded.

    Please correct me, if I am wrong.
