a friend of mine got pregnant when she was 16, and she was so afraid that she beat the thing to death inside her. She made my other friend throw volleyballs into her stomach until she miscarried. She told my friend she was just trying to improve her stomach muscles, so she had no idea what she was helping to do. I think that is the worst possible way for anything to die. Don't you think a clean, medical operation is better than that? There will always be women getting rid of their babies. The question is whether they will be allowed to do it safely and humanely or not.

Wowzer. You guys are bringing in an angle on abortion that I hadn't even thought of. o.o

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Signatures suck.

Oh, and this is what ELSE I do with my free time... http://www.soundclick.com/singlewhiteinfidel

If you need help, PM me. But make sure you've spent some time on it, 'cause I'll only help you if you've shown me that you have some real thought process. Oh, and it sounds obvious, but apparently I have to remind you to tell me what level you're on. wink.gif Oh, yeah, and don't email me unless I say so.

No, Beth, I understood. icon_hug.gif What I was saying is that in the days when abortion was illegal, far too many women (mostly young girls) died doing exactly that. And if it were illegal again, it would happen again.

Okay Greg. I'll concede that you had your point, but I had one that was different. It is sad when women are killing babies, when someone else who desperately wants one, can't have one. And this was family.

If my aunt would have been able to legally abort the baby (and this was in the 40's, so I don't know if it was legal then or not!), it still would have caused other issues... icon_shrugging.gif

I'm not a fan of citing a single source or statistic and walking away, so I'm going to try to find some good, balanced resources to share on the abortion issue. But in the meantime, Weff and others, the following is an excerpt from a 2004 paper presented at a conference of the International Sociology Association in Paris.

QUOTE
Peru is the second South American country with the highest maternal mortality rate after Bolivia. Maternal mortality rate was 240 per 100,000 live births in 2002, a little less than in the period 1990-1996, where it was 265 per 100,000 live births (UNFPA 2003; DHS 1996). Another way of understanding this phenomenon is by comparing the risk of dying because of pregnancy, which is 1 out of every 85 pregnant women in Peru, while it is 1 out of 130 in Latin America and the Caribbean, and 1 out of 3700 pregnant women in North America (WHO 1996 cited in Guzmán 2002). One of the most important causes of maternal mortality is the prevalence of induced abortion performed by non- professionals or self-performed. Abortion is a criminal offense in Peru, except for therapeutic reasons and only when a medical committee establishes that a woman’s life is in danger.

When I did a search on the leading cause of death in pregnant women, guess what I got?

Murder

This was just one of the many articles that reported this information.

Here's another, and another.

There's a study I read last month that showed a fearsome correlation... a perceptible drop in the crime rates of a state about 15-20 years after that state legalized abortion.

Fearsome to consider, and I'm trying to dig out the link to that site. To cite that site. What a sight.
