This is so true and a brilliant rebuttal to most pro-life arguments.

yea, that's a very strong caption.  the sister seems a critic of the catholic churches more harmful policies.  As a nun though, she still has some seriously nonsensical views, and as a successful writer, views that can cause un told harm.

I've long held that pro-lifers aren't pro-life at all. They're the same people that are pro-military, pro-gun, and anti-social safetynet programs. They just want babies to turn into god-fearing sheep who will grow up and pay their tithes and fight their wars.

Yep, youve hit the nail square on its head, Randy.

ok, so it seems no one here is 'pro life' but is anyone a 'pro don't be a stupid bitch'? whats the views on the people that are regulars at the abortion clinic?  Just playing theists advocate

David Smith: no one that I am aware of, especially those who are pro-choice, are pro-abortion, especially pro-abortion-as-a-method-of-contraception. As a former Planned Parenthood Sexual Health Educator, I personally did not see or meet anyone who were abortion regulars. I have heard rumors of these people, but I cannot verify that they exist or that they exist in high quantities.

yea, its probably over exaggerated to make a point, though it does happen.

Comment by Kairan Nierde on January 11, 2014 at 11:45pm

Actually, I'm 'pro-don't be such an irresponsible a dick,' too. Wow.

I agree with you David Smith. I am pro choice, but people should be responsible as well. If you are male and you get someone pregnant, and you didn't mean to, then man up and take responsibility for your actions. I believe that abortion should be the LAST choice, but it should be an option when the only other possibility is a poorly raised, unloved human. That would be the real tragedy.

The statistics from the CDC show

Thank you for backing up what I had essentially experienced but couldn't (or rather, didn't) back up. Saying "As a former Planner Parenthood Sexual Health Educator" on the Interwebs is like saying "I'm going to make a claim about something that no one cares about or believes to 'prove' a point."

More than the statistics, your cost analysis is enough to convince me that there would be a minimal amount of repeat customers (if any) in high numbers. You'd have to have a lot of extra money lying around to be able to get several abortions per year (or whatever the myth is). I'm highly skeptical that the average inner city 20-something has thousands of dollars hanging around.

Consciousness is no more possible without a fully-formed nervous system than circulation is possible without a circulatory system.

Abortion on demand and without apology.

I agree. This had to be my stance while working at PP, but it would be my stance anyway. In my opinion, abortion is less horrifying than circumcision, which is the most popular unnecessary surgery in the West. As you stated, nearly all abortions occur before a nervous system is formed. But all circumcisions occur after the nervous system is formed and on a part of the body with some of the highest concentrations of nerve endings. Circumcision is far more barbaric, in my opinion.
