So you are saying you want to kill gay people then, and you think all women are whores. Typical rightwinger actually.

Why is the GOP so interested in turning women into broodmares?
It's religion-based sexual morality. If the woman consented to sex (and presumably enjoyed it), she must suffer the consequences of her consent and be forced to raise a child or give it up for adoption. If she did not consent (and thus presumably did not enjoy it), then the life of the potential child is no longer important and she is free to abort it.

Even though there is no difference biologically.

If you get money/goods/etc for having sex you are a whore. Which is pretty much how liberals treat women.

And considering that 1/5 gay men has HIV they are doing a pretty good job of killing themselves.

This is EXACTLY how liberals think men should be treated.

I simply can't agree that we should allow a choice which necessarily deprives an innocent, much less an innocent child, and much less again one's own innocent child, of his or her life.
This is where I disagree.

Take a woman who has just gone through the most traumatic experience of her life (and largely one of the most traumatic experiences anyone could ever go through), and then make her jump through hoops to get rid of the pregnancy that resulted from it.

So what happens when a woman cannot prove she's been raped? What happens when they deny her an abortion because she can't prove it? What happens after all of that, and she starts seeking less than good options to rid herself of the pregnancy (be it drugs or a half baked "doctor")?

You cannot force someone to justify their reason for an abortion. It is already a difficult enough process. Making them jump through that kind of a hoop is only going to cause them more pain and suffering.

Its funny how you have the same reasoning towards women as a angsty 14 year old who didn't get invited to a dance.

It is not.

The most I heard was it MIGHT make it more likely.

Otherwise, the female body has ways of just shutting that down.

On the flip side, I've lost track of the amount of attacks on Republicans where supporting even the slightest limits on abortion makes one a religious nut, hillbilly, obsolete, morally bankrupt, pro-rapist, and a lot of other stupidly mean words.

In terms of attacks over abortion, I'd say the Democrats are treated far more fairly than Republicans.
You're so full of shit it's not funny.....

He gets them in his email, they are sent to him daily. Without it he wouldn't know what his opinion is.
