I do NOT feel empowered knowing I can legally destroy human life. I feel EMPOWERED knowing that I can sustain and protect innocent life, in a way no man can. And you will never make me feel guilty for being this strong.
This is what “Feminism” should sound like.
Hell to the yes.
It’s a good thing for the separation between church and state…. I don’t think I would want a lady who does not know the difference between a fetus and a baby to make up laws… just sayin
Separation of Church & State:
The constitution reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”
The words “separation,” “church,” or “state” is not mentioned once in the First Amendment.
All this is saying is that congress can’t make a law respecting the establishment of a religion nor the free practice of religion.
This Amendment was made to protect Religious establishments from government, not government establishments from religion.
There is no declaration anywhere regarding the separation of Church and State, The Bill of rights; Amendment 1: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof… That means that the Government can’t establish a State religion or hinder your belief structure or meddle in the affairs of your chosen religion. So the concept of separation of church and state, which is brought up all the time, isn’t in the Bill of rights at all, there are provisions for the protection of religious belief though.

If you’re so smart you tell me what the difference between a fetus and a baby is. I’m pretty sure they are not as different as you think they are - we don’t say congrats on your fetus shower and do you know the sex of your fetus?? Fetus really means young one or offspring. Either way, both are human life and I think all human life should be protected.
EVIE, YOU ARE:
Okay here is the thing lets do this I need to balance out the ramblings of the pro lifer and Oppressors of choice and of women’s choices in particular I’m not looking for an argument! I’m requesting you read this carefully and open your mind and just consider someone else’s perspective and challenge you too just think not emotionally but intellectually with logic and reason . See if you can actually think about this without reacting emotionally because this IS NOT actually an emotional issue.
Number 1 . If I am with child/ pregnant up the duff whatever you like to call it and that zygote or fetus is still at the stage of SOLELY dependent on my body for survival eg: It is not formed enough to live independently outside my body then until it is, just like any other parasite or body part it is not an independent life. (fact)
2. If you want to outlaw or take away the choice of all abortions you are gonna need a shitload a cash and scientific advancement to save every one that has been conceived including those aborted by the body itself. (ridiculous)
3. If you have a kidney you want to have removed for whatever reason there is no pro lifer /moral/ religious movement saying you cannot choose to do so!
after all it is a body part that cannot sustain life on it’s own .
Think about it carefully….
4. So what the fuck gives you the right to make choices over what I do with my body parts when they are a part of my body just like your kidney that cannot sustain life without your body?
5. why do you get to choose if you want your kidney or not NO QUESTIONS ASKED ?
6. Why do you get to choose what I do with my body parts?
7.Read it again carefully and think we are talking about a created body part that cannot sustain life outside my body independently just like your kidney!
Oh, you’ve got this all wrong. Your “2 cents” is merely a very misinformed opinion, and you look like nothing less than a clown when you pretend to say it’s “fact.”
The truth, which has most unfortunately escaped you, is that we have clear biological facts and even legal precedents that easily refute the claim that the embryo or fetus are simply “part of the mother’s body.”
1. ALL of your body parts share the same genetic code. Your finger, your hair, your kidney, your lungs, etc., all have the same genetic cells. If an unborn child were actually part of its mother’s body, the unborn’s cells would have the same genetic code as the cells of the mother. However, this is simply not the case. Every cell of the unborn’s body is genetically distinct from every cell in the mother’s body.
2. In many cases, the blood type of the unborn child is different than the blood type of the mother. Since one body cannot function with two different blood types, this is clearly not the mother’s blood.
3. In half of all pregnancies, the unborn child is a male, meaning that the sex of the child is different from the mother. However, when pregnant with a male, this does not now mean that the mother has a penis. It means that her baby has a penis, who is a different person than she is.
4. As Randy Alcorn states in his book Pro-Life Answers to Pro-Choice Arguments, “A Chinese zygote implanted in a Swedish woman will always be Chinese, not Swedish, because his identity is based on his genetic code, not on that of the body in which he resides.”
5. When the embryo implants in the lining of the uterus, it emits chemical substances which weaken the woman’s immune system within the uterus so that this tiny “foreign” body is not rejected by the woman’s body. Were this tiny embryo simply “part of the woman’s body,” there would be no need to locally disable the woman’s immunities.
6. It is illegal to execute a pregnant woman on death row because the fetus living inside her is a distinct human being who cannot be executed for the crimes of the mother.
7. As of February 2013, at least 38 states have fetal homicide laws which protect the rights of unborn children independently of the mother (except in the case of abortion). These laws make it possible to charge someone who kills a pregnant woman with two counts of murder.
The fact is: at no point in pregnancy is the developing embryo or fetus simply part of the mother’s body in the same way that her kidney is part of her body.
By comparing the fetus to a kidney, this is merely a sad attempt to dehumanize the fetus. Dehumanizing the victims is a propaganda tool so they can be murdered without complications. Propaganda is a powerful tool in in every genocide campaign.
“I want to talk about an abortion ban that leaves exceptions in place only for instances of rape, incest or life of the mother. The first thing that I want to say about this policy is this: this is a pro-choice position. The proponents can call it whatever the hell they want, but the bottom line is that this position is pro-choice. A person who takes this position is acknowledging that a woman has the right to terminate a pregnancy. What we are actually quibbling about here is who gets to decide when the woman’s reason is good enough.”
I’m reading a pro-choice article and this quote jumped out at me.Being pro-life “with exceptions” is not being pro-life, it is being pro-life-in-certain-circumstances-but-pro-choice-in-others, which undermines the entire premise of being pro-life: that all human lives are equal. If all human lives are truly equal, and if we truly want the unborn to be protected under the law, than we cannot exclude certain humans from this protection, otherwise our moral position would be no better than the pro-choice side.
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry explained on TV that “wanted” and “unwanted” pregnancies are biologically the same but the question of “when does life begin?” is up to the “feelings of the parents” and “not science.”
Science isn’t on our side? Then science doesn’t matter!
Funny… because according to your average pro-choicer, it is the pro-life side that is blinded from logic by “emotions” and “feelings.” Pfft.
And I guess according to Melissa Harris-Perry, the measure of your value and worth is dependent merely on how your parents choose to feel about you.
