Fun Topic!

So this is a fun topic:


Everybody loves talking about abortion, right?

My stance:

Abortion is wrong in any trimester, even the first.


Unless the mother is a victim of rape, incest, or it endangers the mother.

First Trimester

I think that life begins at conception. It's no secret that I'm not exactly "religious", so you can take that out of the equation. I feel as though there is never an "excess" of human life - that no human life, or POTENTIAL of human life, is expendable. You don't have to be religious to still believe in the sanctity of human life.
Maybe you're asking yourself, "Well, John wants the government to stay out of our lives as much as possible, why does he think that a governing body a thousand miles away has any control over our bodies?"

Well, that's an excellent question. I don't buy into the supreme court ruling Roe vs. Wade that says the Constitution gives a woman "privacy" for personal issues. The Constitution says no such thing. So, then, you start looking for Core Democratic Values. You are directly violating that embryo's right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Partial Birth Abortion

Partial birth abortion sickens me. Currently banned in the United States, Barack Obama wishes to lift the ban on partial birth abortion. If you're not informed on how this type of abortion is carried out, let me quickly inform you with as little detail as possible.

First, the woman is put into labor prematurely, around 21-22 weeks (5 months). They pull the baby out feet first, while leaving the head inside. They take fore snips to the head, open it, and remove the brains with a suction tube. I realize that was less than vague, but it's extremely tortuous and horrific. Again, Obama supports to lift the ban on this.



This practice, known as infanticide, might be even more gruesome than partial birth abortion. This is downright murder. At 21-22 weeks, again, the woman is put into premature labor. The baby is born (completely throwing out the liberal belief saying when a baby is born it now has human rights), and then left in the biohazard material room to die. They literally leave the newborn in a basket of soiled linens to die.

Barack Obama voted to keep this practice 3 separate times in the Illinois state legislature. To give you an idea how radically liberal Obama is on this, the US Senate voted on the same bill and voted it down unanimously 98-0. Senators such as John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, JOE BIDEN, and even Harry Reid voted this down.

I don't expect that I have more than one or two readers left, especially since Aunt Carrie and Dad are about the only ones who read any of my blogs anymore due to lack of political interest - but I don't really care. Your passion is your passion, and I'm not afraid to talk about things people don't want to hear about.

Signing off.

It's not so much my lack of political interest, but my lack of interest in sharing my opinions anymore.

That's what blogs are for, though. I can't tell you how many people tell me that my ideas are wrong, or that I'm a terrible person for what I believe in. It doesn't matter, when you find something you believe in, you stick to it - no matter what. I respect anyone and everyone's opinion as long as they can back it up with something that makes sense.

This one is easy for me. It's just plain wrong. Life is life no matter how it's happened.

if life begins at conception how can you justify your clause?

Jock said...

I agree.

If anybody has ever seen a 5 month old fetus born and held it and watch it as it is trying to breath they would be totally against this.

And for those of you who don't know I have been witness to this on two separate occasions. These babies look and act just like babies born full term they are just a little smaller. Anybody who chooses to kill a 3 to 5 month old fetus is a selfish murderer in my book.

This subject is a ticking time bomb.

BTW, I forgot to add: I read your blogs but you'll only get a rise out of me if it's something I feel really strongly about. I'm not going to defend it or argue/support it. I'll let it be heard at the polls.

i don't expect everyone to agree with me and that's fine. it makes conversations much more interesting. the other day someone learned i had a foreign car and was so mad she walked away from me saying she couldn't even talk to me any more. excuse me? if you think i am wrong tell me why, i'll listen. you probably won't change my mind but i will listen.

i can't say i have a lot of political interest. this election has kind of drawn me in this year. i will be glad when things calm down and i can go back to being apathetic.

as far as abortion. i believe a woman has every right to choose what she does with her body. as you all gasp, that is until her actions affect the life of another which in my opinion abortion does. life begins at conception and i can't agree with your exceptions. life is life no matter the circumstances of how it was created. the only exception i can make is if the life of the mother is in danger. it sounds like we are all pretty much in agreement on this subject.

Peej said...

Sarah and Aunt Carrie have great points to say that I'm being hypocritical; and even I think I am. I don't believe that it's right to be able to abort a baby that came from a rape or even the other two, however, it's something that I could compromise on. I tell people all the time that it's not the baby's fault that it was created from a rape - so why is it the one that has to suffer? So, I totally get your positions, because I share the same one.

carriegel said...

it either a person or not, how it became to be is irrelevant after that. but i know that is not a widely held opinion.

I read your blog!

May not be a widely held opinion, but it is mine and something I don't waiver on.
