I was pro-Choice for my entire life. Eventually I came around to allowing it legally but thought it wasn't a great idea except in circumstances, like rape or serious physical disabilities. Then we came to my home state of New York. Law was passed following abortion AFTER BIRTH. The baby could be born, resuscitated and then still murdered! At that point I was done. If we're seriously considering murdering an already-born child there's something wrong. FYI, my nephew's girlfriend was born at 6 months and grew up normal and healthy.

I’m Pro Choice but what New York allowed was far beyond acceptable or moral and everyone on either side should have spoken out against that law
Oliver Biscuit 1 weeks
Yep. Should only be allowed if it's medically necessary to save the mother, if the unborn is going to have some abnormality that will reduce standard of living/quality of life and cases of rape. Women using it as a birth control method is horrible when there are SO many other methods (the pill, monthly vaginal suppositories, condoms, IUDs, tube tying, veganism, etc.)

Just for perspective, it used to be quite common for unwanted babies to get chucked in the river before modern medical procedures. Now we have better options.

Not all Pro-Life are Christians. And some Pro-Abortion people identify themselves as "Christians". So, false equivalency.

You're ok with murdering children?
Jason J Mitchell 1 weeks
That's a fairly ignorant statement, in my opinion. Scientifically abortion is murder. You don't have yo be Christian top understands that.

People are all for abortion until they get asked if they’d be okay with their parents aborting them.

Exactly
Miles O'Brien 1 weeks
WOW! That's just stupid. If your old enough to be asked, you're too old to be aborted.

We've all heard the old 2013 stat that in NYC more black babies were aborted than born... and it's absolutely true. But here's a new fun fact that should chill any non-psychopath to the bone. In 2016 the total number of all recorded deaths (heart attack, homicide, car crash, anything) in NYC was 57,758... pretty high but we have to remember that 1 in 38 people in the US lives in NYC In 2016 in NYC the total number of abortions recorded? 59,854... Just let that sink in a bit... The women of NYC are causing the destruction of life at a rate that is greater than all other reasons for death combined, in the most populous city in this nation. I don't know if there is a God, I don't think anyone does... but if there is, I would be ashamed to be in its presence. The people of NYC who aid in this slaughter and who turn a blind eye, they are truly damned.

Just another case of Conservative Christians trying to shove their morality down the throats of everyone. 73% of all embryo's do not survive the first six weeks, yet these politicians want to declare these embryo's viable and to be protected because they have a soul. A lot of wasted souls, seems to be a faulty design. Just an FYI the heart starts to develop around four weeks, the brain and spinal cord not till later.

It’s naive to think it’s strictly a Christian / non-Christian issue. Or an issue of men telling women what to do. I know a good number of non theistic women who oppose abortion in all but extreme cases.

Umm you cant kill someone else's fetus because then they didnt have a choice in what happens to their own body.......Just how these new abortion restrictions do not give a woman a choice over her own body.

We foot the bill for abortions, much to our dismay and against our wishes. It would feel much nicer to know we're instead footing the bill for a child to have a better chance.

He means that federal tax dollars dont pay for abortions (Hyde amendment, and Capps amendment). Also that insuring it isn't aborted does not mean you are giving it a better life, some of these children will end up in the system, or live difficult/stressful/abused/or even painful lives.

It would be safe to say to a pro-choice person, "Your mother should have aborted you". If they get offended, it means they are total hypocrites.

5 - 6 weeks is enought time to get a pregnancy test.So it is just going to affect lazy woman who couldnt be botherd to check.So I have no pfoblem with this if it includes the basic exeptions like rape and incest

I am more then willing to pay more in taxes if it means a baby doesnt get murdered. I don't think we should kill because they are a burden.
Bones 1 weeks
Would you support this stance when it comes to the death penalty?
Joshua Green 1 weeks
Bones, the infant has done nothing to incur a consequence of death. If someone through their actions has earned corporal punishment how is that unjust? Judge each individual by their deeds or injustice flows freely, correct?
Bones 1 weeks
Either all life is sacred, or it is not. Taking the life of an individual is not justified merely because more people say you should die.

when fear mongering meets religion you have modern day Salem witch trials. notice almost all of the lawmakers and religious people are men and women who have never and will never have children?
Naomi Steele 1 weeks
As a nonreligious woman who has children, I support this new law. A great step forward, Ohio!
Brian Olsen 1 weeks
people like you need to understand just exactly what kind of shift in our society will happen. Guaranteed. crime will rise, welfare recipients will rise, insurance costs will skyrocket and adoption will probably remain steady. oh yeah, and you just made an already difficult decision more dangerous. hope you sleep well, evangelicals.
Naomi Steele 1 weeks
Is the "people like you" referring to the religious "evangelicals" you were originally pointing your finger at or now at nonreligious women with children? Have you noticed how the group that has an opposing opinion to you is much larger and with more diversity of background than you think?

For those that support "medically necessary abortion to "save the mother," please understand that there is NO SUCH THING. Abortion is never medically necessary for any reason. To "save the mother" there are times when EARLY DELIVERY is necessary, but NEVER abortion. The difference is one makes sure the baby dies.
David Giarratana 1 weeks
Luke, fatality during childbirth was much more common before modern medicine. You don't know what you're talking about.
Luke Duke 1 weeks
It sounds more like you have no idea what you're talking about. There is NO MEDICALLY NECESSARY REASON to EVER make sure the baby is DEAD. If you have to deliver it early to save the mother, the baby may die. But that doesn't mean it's ok to kill it.
David Giarratana 1 weeks
False, Luke. The probabilities are not so simple. Both mother and infant mortality have gone down as legal abortions have gone up. This issue is more complex than you would like to admit.
