The court's decision did not ban abortions! It gave the responsibility back to the states, where it belongs. Most states allow abortions if the mother's life is in danger or if the pregnancy is not viable.

Because ol' J.Roc here doesn't think in those terms. He's still stuck in the Democrat mental vice that results in regrettable mistakes but having no idea of the root cause. He only knows he'll course correct after being burned by touching that hot stove, but can't figure out how to avoid the burn in the first place.

Still trapped in the verifiably anti-science and obtuse Democrat talking point that the body inside the mother is the same as the body of the mother. Conflation of true bodily autonomy issues such as vaccine mandates with blatantly false bodily autonomy issues such as the taking of the life and destruction of body that is not the mother's life or body to take. As such, he has no interest in sending it back to states or limitations on abortion, he's only interested in guaranteeing the "right" to take the life of the unborn as birth control as some kind of virtue on par with individual liberty.

Just a guess, but I'm guessing the ol' wife is pretty hard core "women's right to abortion" and he knows where he needs to be on it if he knows what's good for him.

Wow I really dislike it when people mind-read someone they disagree with. The woman who gets pregnant is facing the prospect of raising that child for 18+ years. Guess why there were so-called shotgun marriages. How about we bring that back. The man who contributed the sperm needs to step up if we’re going to require that child come into this world. If you’re against that, you’re dooming that baby you so self righteously saved. If you’re ready to step up and adopt a child, then I’ll listen to you. Otherwise not.

I really dislike it when people strip women of all agency for who they decide to be impregnated by and then resort to absurdly obtuse false choice logic in order to justify their lust for killing babies in the womb.

How about we bring back making the father part of the decision related to his own unborn child and then maybe you can talk about restricting his choice to leave?

I don't need to step up and do anything to have a valid opinion on killing babies in the womb. I'm not responsible for the choices and actions of complete strangers no mater how much you wish your lizard brain logic made any sense there. I also don't need to be ready to adopt since there is a long waiting list of people trying, wanting, praying to adopt babies that outstrips supply. If you'd been anywhere near this situation in your life rather than spending your life with your head firmly implanted in your ass, you'd know this.

Agreed. The father should be required to have the same responsibility as he also exercised agency. How about we have a lien put on all his assets for the next 18 years? Sounds fair to me. (You might not care what happens when that unwanted child is born, but I do.) If the father wants to help arrange the adoption and the new family agrees to let him off the hook, fine. But pretending this is simple is a luxury one only has when one is not pregnant. It’s pretty easy to look on and shout murderer! How about fix it instead? I say criminal penalties for men who contribute to that child’s existence without taking responsibility for it.

You care so much about what happens "when that unwanted child is born" you want it's mother to kill it instead. What a guy/gal!

You can't tell the man he has no say in what happens to his child before its born, and clowns like you do, and then tell him that if it's born it's his responsibility. If the baby is truly "unwanted" by it's parents, that does not mean the baby is unwanted. This is the abortion as birth control cult rhetorical tactic designed to get the abortions they want instead of the baby to parents that want it. There is no shortage of waiting parents out there who either can't or don't want to have their own but are literally buried on wait lists waiting anxiously for months, sometimes years, on end for the phone to ring.

Finally, can't help but comment on your last bit of lizard brain logic, where you favor no criminal charges for killing babies in the womb while making a criminal out of a men who've been told they have no say in the matter and walk away. Once again, what a guy/gal!

Child support already exists in all 50 states, and not paying it can result in jail time. I can't speak to other states, but in Florida (and probably many other states), a father can't just decide to give up his parental rights to his kid either. Even if he and the mother both agreed to it, a judge won't grant a termination of rights unless there is someone stepping up to adopt the kiddo in his absence. We are in the process right now, so my husband can adopt our kiddo, since he has been her daddy for most of her life.

You seem to think the conservative platform is "no abortion" AND "no responsibility for fathers", which is... not a thing. We believe in personal responsibility on the part of both the mother and the father of the child.

You also seem to think conservatives aren't willing to adopt, which is statistically incorrect. The vast majority of adoptive families lean right. There are 38 sets of adoptive parents for every newborn available to be adopted in the US. Furthermore, if the government eases the requirements (especially cost) of adoption, many more would adopt.

There are long waiting lists for adoption of these "unwanted" babies. Many states have laws allowing the mother to drop the baby off at a hospital and walk away. The men should step up... you betcha! But only as far as the women do. Adoption is a loving answer.

The pro-abortionists either know this and don't care or don't know this because they don't care. Either way, they have a morbid preference for killing babies in the womb over more ethical options.

Too bad older kids aren't as cute as babies...they need love... So, lots of children ready to be adopted but they aren't cute babies.

Expand full comment

You are definitely right, in that it is harder to place children than babies. I see the comment by Hornit that explains it very well. If more people who were not really ready (or would never want kids at all) would put those kids up for adoption when they were babies, it certainly would be easier on everyone! (My husband was adopted at age 2; he was in foster care until then. We have never looked for his biological parents, but we are eternally grateful that they made the choice they did.)

Expand full comment

This is a disingenuous narrative. People going through the baby adoption process are NOT the people who bring home new puppies because they're cute and then abandon them when they become inconveniences. And they are not the people who do foster care for the money. The process of adopting a baby is grueling and often heart breaking, not to mention expensive.

The problem with adopting children that are not given up for adoption as babies is that they are primarily children that have been taken from their parent(s) by the state. They have already been born and raised for some time in complete dysfunctional, often abusive environments and now there are also all sorts of other complications that come with attempting to adopt them and be parents to them with other or another parent and family looming in the background. Yeah, they need love but now they need a whole lot more than just that.

As a conservative, your terms are acceptable to me. I also agree we should not presume someone's motivation for supporting abortion, but the rest of his argument is still solid, even if delivered with a crappy attitude.

The test strips cost as low as $.50/each. The "women are toddlers" crowd insist telling us all the reasons women didn't know they were pregnant, so since they are admitting there's no way to know from one's symptoms, if one is sexually active then test once/week year-round. That can cost about $24/yr and problem is solved.

Anyone who wants an abortion can get one. You know that. However, if you don't want the clot-shot, you can lose your job, lose your career, and, if you have no income, maybe lose your home. Have a little perspective.

The sticky part about abortions is that it's not just your wife's body; there's also the body of the person growing inside her. That is not a religious issue; it's a legal one. If a pregnant woman is murdered, and the baby inside her also dies, the law considers that a double murder. The constitution doesn't address abortion, so now the people can work it out through the voting process.

It’s also a scientific reality - it is alive at some point in the gestational process. I personally don’t think that “life” starts at conception, but I know there’s life there well before birth. And reasonable people agree that this general framework is true - just look at the polling. Even Roe had a “viability” clause. So the middle ground is widely supported across the board. It’s the assholes on the ends of both spectrums that are drowning out a reasonable agreed upon solution. I’d go as far as saying that the ‘73 Roe ruling was part of the problem if not the worst thing that happened to the conversation that needed to occur around the topic. And it gave false hope to a few generations of women, leading them actually to believe that the constitution supported the (unexpressed but obvious) viewpoint that there was a split view on human life.

Expand full comment

Maybe those people supporting abortion at any age, even post birth, disgusted so many people that they made the abortion issue what it is today.

Denying a fetus is alive. Saying it is just a bunch of cells makes people sound like ghouls. Every human couple is attatched to the baby as soon as it is a bumb in the womans stomach, and people morn the loss of the fetus no matter how early it is in developement. So hearing people celebrate the destruction is just disgusting to the public.

I am not an asshole just because I don’t agree with you. Life starts at conception and the baby is pretty much developed by 12 weeks. Heart beating way before that. Just look at any ultrasound, please. If you want to kill babies because it’s convenient then at least be honest about it.

Expand full comment

Looking at a picture is not the best way to make a judgment since the human embryo looks very similar to other mammalian embryos. This is why pig embryos are used for dissection. Since you state life starts at conception then it follows you would want to make IVF illegal. An embryo is an embryo, whether fertilization/conception happens in a dish or in the fallopian tubes. The fetus isn't "pretty much developed" by 12 weeks but the neural system is starting to develop and most Americans (and almost the entire western world) support 1st trimester abortions and IVF.

I guess I'm one of the assholes, then, because I know that the middle-ground still fails to deal with the reality of abortion - i.e. the killing of an innocent, defenseless human being. While I recognize there may be a different political reality, the physical reality of abortion is death of a human being.

Well stated. I believe the assholes at both ends of the spectrum are trying to destroy this country, and both ends treat women as morons unable to add 2+2. If one is sexually active then do a strip pregnancy test once/week year-round. That can cost as low as $24/year. That eliminates the "I didn't know I was pregnant" until too late argument.

In a search of state level abortion laws I couldn’t find one that didn’t have a carve-out for saving the mothers life. There’s obviously states that don’t have exceptions for rape/incest. Interestingly I found that most states, even blue states, had a “until viable” clause which is set around 24 weeks. Only Oregon didn’t (I admit that CA may as well). So this hub-bub seems more political to me than real in broad terms.

Bottom line, the constitution was twisted to some oboe support the idea that there was a difference between born and unborn humans. A preposterous assumption. That’s why abortion can’t be “constitutional.” It’s actually as simple as that.

There are 6 states including Colorado, the state I currently reside in, that allows an abortion during the entire gestational process, ie up to and until the baby's head "crowns".

The court's decision was not about abortion, but about legislating from the bench, magically discovering principles which were never enshrined in the constitution, which resulted in opening the gateway to a lot of other bad laws and interpretations of the law in entirely unrelated matters.

SCOTUS said the Constitution had no opinion, so it's up to the states, but the Founding Fathers didn't think it warranted even mentioning since abortion was codified into law in the early 1600s in England. Heck, it was totally legal into the late 19th century in America when the AMA decided to oppose it....

There has ALWAYS been contraception and abortion and always will. Abortion isn't easy, but neither are lots of things about the lives we live. We should be allowed to live those lives without undue interference by pontificating narcissists.

Did you learn your history from AOC? Most of what you said is either blatantly false or lacking the useful context to actually be true.

Contraception isn't even part of this issue, so you need not include it at all. People have (mostly) always taken measures to prevent pregnancy. And abortion has been a thing for a long time. What's newer is abortion as a form of contraception, which is of course, what this is all about.

Expand full comment

Don't follow AOC, but I was drawing from memory. Apparently abortion was codified in England in the 13th century rather than the 16th.

"The first references to abortion in English law appeared in the 13th Century. The law followed Church teaching that abortion was acceptable until ‘quickening’, which, it was believed, was when the soul entered the fetus. The legal situation remained like this for centuries." https://abortionrights.org.uk/history-of-abortion-law-in-the-uk/

But my memory was on point re America's history.

"In U.S. history, abortion wasn't always controversial. In fact, in colonial America, it was considered a fairly common practice, a private decision made by women and aided mostly by midwives. But in the mid-1800s, a small group of physicians set out to change that."

100% revisionist and creative history from your abortion activist sources that depends on the abject ignorance of their minions to understand any historical realities outside the context as what they know as their personal, current reality. The absence of formal law does not equal the "codification" of it in law, which is willfully conflated in such propaganda. England did not exist in any shape, manner or form in the 13th century as it does today, which is again what the propaganda depends on you thinking. There was no formal central government of England to codify such "rights" or laws. There was a semblance of a monarchy that was constantly in flux and challenged and an array of mostly independent kingdoms that were also constantly in flux and challenged by perpetual civil war. Such social rules and laws changed as the local rulers changed. And the concept of individual liberty and rights, such as rights to life, didn't exist on any meaningful scale. It was essentially a feudal system of lords (tiny elite minority) and serfs (masses) with very different standards of "justice."

Attempting to compare some imagined codified right to an abortion in 13th century England to the world we live in today is a fool's errand, which again is what the propaganda depends on. Suffice it to say, "quickening" was simply when a woman first became aware there was a life inside her in those times. They didn't know what they didn't know, of course, so rules and mores were extensions of what they knew or understood. And Saxon mores at that time were very Christian and very unfriendly to the ideas of sexual and reproductive liberties.

If there is a God and he had any sense of humor, he'd drop these clowns back in 13th century England and tell them to behave in the manner they believe (assuming they actually believe it) people and society did back then.

We are not debating POV or agendas in this small thread. We can disagree on that, but to disagree that abortion has always been practiced and largely tolerated in North America, the British Isles, and the rest of the world in previous times is akin to denying that conception is a result of sexual intercourse.

"The earliest written record of abortion is more than 4,000 years old... " https://truthout.org/articles/abortion-is-as-old-as-pregnancy-4-000-years-of-reproductive-rights-history/

"Instructions for inducing an abortion appear in the Bible. In Numbers 5:11-31"

Yup, legislating from the bench is not Supreme Court Justices job contrary to what liberal justices believe. A lot of these people who are upset about Roe v Wade decision don't seem to understand this point. Also to J.Roc, the difference of bodily autonomy in these two cases is.. that the latter involves another life.. see those murder cases when victim is pregnant? murderer gets to be charged for two murders? One for the mother, and one for the baby in her womb. So, it is not the same with the bodily autonomy of the vaccine case. People on the right is fighting for the life of unborn who does not have the voice. (my personal opinion is.. women should be given the choice of abortion up to say 12 weeks. or till the baby has heart beat. You are fully aware the chance of your pregnancy if you miss your period!).

Hornlt, so you’re the arbiter of what is a constitutional right. In the original Roe v. Wade decision, seven of the nine judges concurred. In 1989, 1992, 2007, and 2016 the Supreme Court upheld the essence of Roe versus Wade. 330 Human Life Amendment proposals have been introduced in Congress, but only one made it to the floor of the Senate in 1983, and it failed. The above belies your assertion: “This is self evidently true of anybody who imagines a right to abortion where none exists simply because they want it to.” For almost 50 years, abortion was a constitutional right until the Republicans decided to have a theocratic Supreme Court that believes in a theocracy instead of a democracy

They didn't celebrate the loss of bodily autonomy. They celebrated the return of the issue to the People, where it belongs.

They also celebrated, because it's NOT about bodily autonomy. It's about bodilies autonomy. There's a second body involved, and it's about time the People speak up for the second body.

Some People will still allow that second, innocent body to be killed - the People of NYS and California, for example. They who celebrated the "loss of bodily autonomy" understand that.

I find it hard to believe that you cannot tell the difference between government DEMANDING that you shoot up your children with experimental, untested drugs, and government LETTING the People in the 50 separate, discrete States decide what will happen inside each State.

Because remember, if the federal government mandates jabs for kids, there's no OTHER federal government you can go to and still remain in America. If a state government bans your wife from having an abortion, she can go across a state line and get it done.

I find it hard to believe you cannot distinguish the difference between the two.

There is no easy or happy answer, here, but since when has life been all easy and happy?

I believe the Catholic Church once regarded male masturbation as akin to murder. It has certainly felt that way about the Pill and other female contraception.

"Quickening" which is at about 20 weeks has been the traditional response. I can live with that. I can't live with women having unsafe abortions that could kill them or make them infertile or being forced to have an unwanted child that they can't properly care for and for whom they sacrifice their lives.

That said, I respect the pro-life position and wish they'd respect the pro-choice position because, again, there is no easy or happy answer.

Expand full comment

There sure as heck ARE "easy" and "happy" answers.

One-week-old, six-month-old, two-year-old - those are EASY answers. You don't kill children who are those ages.

You don't find those to be easy answers? If not, then that's disturbing.

"I can't live with women having unsafe abortions that could kill them or make them infertile or being forced to have an unwanted child that they can't properly care for and for whom they sacrifice their lives." is an enormous straw man, NONE of which would have to happen with the issue being returned to the States, as it has been. Abortion will *never* be banned nationally.

Your daughter can still get an abortion... she just has to put more effort into it than making a next day appointment down the street. I find it demeaning and disrespectful that people look at women and assume they all need abortions and can't figure out how to handle their own lives - as if they are too dumb to do so.

If an on demand, next day abortion is your highest priority, then, yes, you need to remain with the Democrats. I hope that is consolation in the event the next forced school closure, lockdown and vaccine mandate occurs. They showed their true colors and will do all this again to us.

Just how many women are truly trying NOT to get pregnant as well as the men involved being responsible "in the moment"? Where is self responsibility? How many pregnancies could easily be avoided on responsibility awareness alone? Sure things happen, but just sayin. Kind of similar to the over reliance on medications for so many Americans who are so overly prescribed...it's lunacy. Where is the self accountability and personal responsibility for living well in healthy ways.

Agree, Brogan12. There is no pregnancy without a male involved, however that involvement may occur. Women were created with the physical capacity to bring new life into the world ... but we can't exercise that capacity without assistance. Just because we were chosen as the child-bearing gender, doesn't give us the right to ignore the "participation" of either the father or the unborn child in the project. We can't get pregnant by ourselves, and once pregnant, are no longer by ourselves. Sorry, ladies. Time to GROW UP and accept responsibility for PREVENTING pregnancy if you don't want or aren't ready for it. Yes, guys should also be responsible, but if you roll the dice with some dude you just met, it's on you. It's really not at all complicated. Pick a birth control method and practice it consistently like an adult, and voila! ... no pregnancy.

Oh great, with that logic, whether I am directed to get a vaccine should be left to a majority vote of fellow citizens or the government of the state I live in. The analogy is apt: medical autonomy My body my choice should lead, but not be the last word.

That should be where we put our efforts, not on restriction or prescription.

No, you have the logic backwards. States are not *mandating* abortion so it’s not analogous to states mandating vaccination. The proper analogy is having states permit abortion and having states permit vaccination. But not mandating either one of them.

Expand full comment

No you have the logic backwards. This would be like states mandating that you COULDN'T take a vaccine just as they are mandating you cannot have access to your bodily choices via abortion bans. Desantis tried this overreach with masks, initially trying to mandate NO mask wearing, then backtracked because of the obvious backlash and contradiction. Choice is where you don't have the vaccine mandated FOR or AGAINST, or abortion FOR or AGAINST. Get it now?

Your logic is clear. The only variable is the unique unborn child. Roe vs Wade was ultimately struck down because of the Left's complete unwillingness to allow the unborn child any protection, at all.

Expand full comment

True that. There must be moral and legal weight accorded a being entering this world. Historically, even among Catholics before the Industrial revolution, this line was midterm, around 18 weeks or so, defined by the quickening. That’s reasonable, but then we must make not only the fetus viable but the raising of the child, with affordable child care, raised salaries for moms and dads, and universal, accessible medical care. That will get serious pushback from corporate interests which control both parties.

I pray that in the very least, women won’t pretend they want the baby until 6 months and then have a late term abortion...actually I’m not necessarily against the Abortion Pill as it is only used earlier in pregnancy, but personal awareness and responsibility need to be taught and WITNESSED.

Very few women don’t know they are pregnant at 8 weeks and instead they wait months and months because they are taught this weird progressive “total life system” where the government guarantees “equity”..

Expand full comment

Shoot, I forgot to add that the “day after” pill would cover rape and incest...they wait months to decide they don’t want the rapist or daddy’s child...

They go on and on about these two, but they should never require late term abortions, unless it’s a child and being held captive by the family...

Expand full comment

One might hope that a woman who is raped would have the presence of mind to get a morning after pill, well, the morning after. Hopefully. Some will be too traumatized to think about that, especially if they're very young.

Incest is a completely different matter, in that it usually involves young girls and is not a one-time thing. Dad starts raping daughter when she's 11 years old. At 14, she finally winds up pregnant. I don't see how a morning after pill would figure into it. She'd need to keep taking the thing on a regular basis, and if it's on a regular basis, she might as well just take the regular pill. "Doctor, could you please prescribe the pill to me because daddy likes to fool around with me?" Err, right.

Hopefully people like school counselors will give up the pronoun debate and start caring for children…

Dear J.Roc, I have faith that reflection will resolve what you currently regard as a dilemma.

The most important priority is to make sure that the government can't force you or your child to be injected with a drug that has caused injuries and death.

The next priority is to be involved in the democratic process. I have no idea what state you are in, but are you reacting to your present situation or the concept that citizens of individual states have had their rights to determine the laws of their states returned to them?

If there is one thing that is a fact, abortions are still accessible in the United States of America. Let's make sure that protection from authoritarian mandates remain as well.

The far left run he’ll holes will allow abortion unrestricted. At least understand the issue before wandering lost into the wilderness over your politics.

I agree that it is monstrous. But calling someone a monster is less persuasive that presenting the monstrous aspects of the reality of late-term abortion. "Sick in the head" will not persuade. We're on the same side.

It is scientifically indisputable that a human zygote is an individual human, growing and developing as we all do for the extent of our lives. Politically, we as a people have to come up with a societal compromise that neither side will embrace 100%. But we have to have a functioning society.

my guess is that if she had died unvaccinated, it would have been in the headline and in every paragraph of the article with some gloating, shaming and blaming
