Not too late to save our planet from ravages wrought by developers Denial of climate change being caused by humans rages as the ice caps melt, pollution levels increase and our planet becomes more stressed. Our stress will continue not only at the loss of our beautiful natural air freshener and spirit refresher we call trees, but as we are forced to get used to the proliferation of the concrete jungle of mazes becoming all ...

If a 14 year old girl has a 20 week old baby and lets it die it is called murder/infanticide and she is arrested...... If a doctor aborts a 20 week old fetus it is called abortion..... Please tell me what the difference is.

What is it, that's growing inside a woman? It's not a rabbit, or a chipmunk, or a mouse. It's a human being.

The larger issue is one of Federalism and the fact that nowhere in the Constitution is the issue of abortion addressed. Therefore, as stated in the 10th amendment, the states get to decide. Roe v. Wade was bad law because it is not based on the Constitution.

If a 14-year-old girl has a 20-week-old baby and lets it die--what kind of statement is this? The baby would not survive without intensive care.

The point is, women do not have abortions without agonizing over it.

As far as the Constitution is concerned...When the Constitution was written, women didn't have the right to vote. Safe surgical abortion procedures did not exist, although if you read the history of abortion, you will find that women who were desperate found ways to self-abort using very dangerous things. Many died trying to do this. That is how desperate they were. I am not an abortion proponent; I only know that many women are in dire straits before they consider this as a last resort.

Wanda, that is right the baby would not survive and there have been dozens if not hundreds of 14,15,16 and 17 year old girls that have been charged with murder because they did NOT get that baby intensive care. So again, tell me the difference between a 14 year old that lets her 20 week old baby die because she is scared and an abortion. Why is one murder and the other a woman's choice?
