Taxpayers should not have to pay for abortion period. If it is a woman's right to choose, she should choose to pay for it also. Taxpayers should have a choice in whether or not they should have to pay for this murder. Their argument is that it will save the lives of many women, but my question is, If the baby does not deserve to live, why should the mother deserve to live? And don't give me no mess about the mother being raped or her life being in danger. We all know that most abortions are not done because of that. Besides, I believe that the mere fact that God allowed this mother to become pregnant, means that this baby deserves a chance to live. God is the one who gives life and he should be the only one to take it away. Anyone who takes a human life, in any form, for any reason, in my opinion is playing God and that ought not to be.

Wonder which costs more to the taxpayer, an abortion or raising the kid in an orphanage or foster care? Just saying...as far as the taxes part goes abortion is probably by far the cheaper.

Not saying it should make the decision. Just saying it can't be used as an excuse for the decision you make.

Well, if you want to go that route, I will have to say that birth control is cheaper than either one. But since I really don't believe in that either, they need to abstain until marriage. And I am not trying to come across as holier than anyone. I have never been married and am not a virgin. But you could not pay me to murder my child, under any circumstances.

hi rozie! of course not. me too...i share in your opinion. i would not want to pay for it and share in the guilt of their abortion. i would not tolerate it. if that is what they want, then fine. that is their choice. but i will not take part of any of it. yup, if they want it, they have to pay for it. take care and God bless you! :-) happy mylotting!

We do not want to pay for our own sins, why should we have to pay for some silly irresponsible person who sees a baby as just a burden and not a blessing from God. Do people even sit down and consider the miracle of life any more? I wish that every woman who got an abortion would instantly become sterile and never have the choice of doing something that dumb again. They are taking way too much for granted.

You are right about that. Most of these women who are talking abortion don't even consider the fact that if their mother had aborted them, they would not even be alive to consider aborting an innocent child. Thanks for responding.

I'M AGAINST ABORTIONS...because even if it is in a woman's stomach..it isn't up to her to chose if the child should live or die. It is MURDER and God says that everyone will pay for murder right? It is written DO NOT KILL. If a woman was pregnant and there was a fight an she lost the baby the person would pay for killing the baby that wasn't born yet. So if GOD sees a baby as precious and even if it isn't born yet considered a human being then NO ONE has the right to take a life but GOD and he doesn't take innoncent lives. I had to have an abortion because I had cancer of the uturus and had 3 other children..the babies and I were going to die. I did die but was revived. A chance was taken..I survived but there isn't a day that I don't think about those triplets ..3 boys. :(

While it's true that it's written in the bible that "thou shalt not murder", I think it's a bit of a stretch to claim that abortion is murder. Does scripture even say anything about abortion? Also, if killing an unborn fetus is considered murder, shouldn't the person go to jail for that? If God doesn't take innocent lives, why are there miscarriages and stillborn babies?

No, it's not considered murder or else the perpetrator would at least be charged with manslaughter.

First God doesn't take innoncent lives. It is because of imperfection that we inherited from the Sin of Adam and Eve that we have still born babies and miscarriages. Until the Gouvernement made it LEGAL TO KILL unborn babies, you did go to jail if you had an abortion or were one who did it. Remember Dr. Mortengaler, he went to jail alot because he was performing them. Imagine if YOUR MOTHERS got rid of you..you wouldn't be here talking about it.

My husband has just informed me that Clinton passed legislation (the "mexico city" rule) to pay for foreign abortions with federal funds. Bush repealed it. Now Obama reinstated it! Now we can pay for those too!

Umm, small correction before I actually respond. Obama just voted into legislation law that will stop federal funding for abortions unless for rape or incest. Not going to put my opinion on that here, look for my response further down the list.

Hi Rozie dear! I share the same sentiment my friend. I have been trying to get pregnant for so many years unfortunately I never did and have accepted this Will of God with my whole heart. It is sad when I hear women getting pregnant and decide to have them aborted. I do regard having children/babies to be blessings. Take care and have a great day! lovelots..faith210

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! notice no one is making a comment on this but on killing babies they sure are! People wouldn't be living at all if it wasn't a blessing to have a child and humanity would die out like many civilizations have because they killed each other off.

I totally feel your pain. I am 39 years old and not even married yet. When I think of these people who treat such precious blessings like a curse, it makes me boiling mad. For the life of me, I can't understand how they could do such a thing. I mean, I look at the child of a stranger and my heart melts with love. And I just lose my mind when one of my family members has a baby and you think for a minute that someone could take out their own flesh and blood. Sin causes people to be extremely stupid.

Prove that abortion is murder. Prove that the fetus has a soul upon conception.

I would have thought it was the man you were with and you decided by not taking precautions decided who got pregnant.Of course a baby deserves to live ,but it is not up to me decide for that person they are the ones who have to live with it,and seeings he forgives everyone in the end does all this really matter.I just think that everyone blames god and holds him responsible for everything and I just think it is about time we gave him a break and decided for ourselve,I think we are having to agree to disagree on this one my friend,still friends suzzy.xx

I do not understand what you are attempting to say, it is not clear to me. Are you saying that the baby deserves to live, but it is the mother's decision to make. God does not forgive EVERYONE in the end. At least, not that my religion teaches. No one can blame God for a woman getting an abortion. God is completely against murder and he makes that very clear in his word. As far as giving God a break, he is not human, he does not need a break, he is God. I think sometimes we get too comfortable about bringing God down to our level.

For someone who let his son die in agony on a cross while he watched I would not be to sure of taking him as a loving caring person would you,and it is just not that what life is it to be brought into the world in family who cannot afford to feed the kids they have,or a young girl who has no means of support or the intelligence to bring that child up.What a life of misery your god expects people to go through.

I'm sure there are plenty of other things your tax dollars are paying for that you wouldn't approve of. If you're unhappy about legislation in your state contact your state representatives and let them know how you feel but I doubt anything will change. A woman has the right to have control over her own body regardless of anyone else's opinion on the matter.

I agree. I am a Christian and I live in Canada and no matter how I feel about abortion, (totally against it except in the case of ectopic pregnancy where the mother will die unless the tube is removed,) we have to pay for these murders. I do not want the same thing to happen down in America. I do feel the fault likes in those who advocated abortion to eradicate poverty, an extension of what we were told, "you cannot afford another baby" or "think about bringing a life into the world when you have a mortgage to pay, etc." and I think that many abortionists are wanting to fund abortion in the third world countries as revenge against those who felt that the paler your skin, the less motherly you were. In other words, they are saying, "If I was not allowed to keep that baby because I happen to be Anglo=Saxon, why should someone who happens to be Kenyan or East Indian?" And so it becomes a vicious circle. I also think those horrible people, parents or boyfriends who drag a woman and have the abortionist force her down and perform the abortion, should be seveely punished since they are complaecent in murder and kidnapping.

I thought you would say something like this lol. Hey Suspense. I apologize for deleting you from my friends list. I disagreed with a lot of your opinions here in MyLot, and in a bad moment of mine, I deleted you from my friends list. I forgot temporarily that it takes all kinds to make up the world, and they should have equal representation here. I have sent you a new friend request, I hope that you accept it. Also, I have written a discussion along the same lines as this, in hopes of a friendly debate with you. For you, and anyone else that would like to join the debate, the discussion is here: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1882896.aspx Now, to comment on your actual response here, I agree with you, even with being pro-choice. Although I feel that its a woman's choice to have an abortion, the nation's tax dollars should have nothing to do with it. If its her choice to have it, its her choice to pay for it, unless in extreme cases that will cause the mother to die, as you've said.

There are certain circumstance I would accept abortion but rape wouldn't be one of them. For example, if the sonogram showed a baby with devil horns then maybe I would accept the right to abortion.

I agree with you, up to a point. Yes, the taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for abortions, especially with the country being divided about if it should even be allowed. It shouldn't even be an option presented to tax payers. If you want to help with abortions, donate to a private organization. However, and this is why I am glad that Obama left this in legislation, I do believe that funding should be provided for those with etopic pregnancies, or others that would be fatal for the mother to carry. Even though this is killing the baby, who knows if the baby would survive, especially if the mother is not likely to survive. On top of this, what if the mother has other kids? Now not only is the newborn left without a mother, but the kids that came before as well. I'm against using abortion as a form of birth control, but I still think mothers should be assisted in certain circumstances, not that I would avail myself of these personally.

Well I am pro-choice but then it annoys me when the prolifers secretly change when the question knocks on their door. In our town - where everyone knows everyone else there was a Catholic family. This womans had sons who she thought were the second coming. She was President of the area Right to Life group and then it hit. Her son got his girlfriend pregnant. The girl came from a non catholic family. This so active Right to Lifer talked to the girl who had not even thought of having an abortion, and she talked her into it and told her she would pay for it. She then sent her son to the girls best friend to ask her if she would drive her to the abortion clinic which was about 80 miles away. He said his mother would pay for all the gas and give them money for meals etc. that day. Then the woman got the girl to her house again and called the abortion clinic and they made the appointment. After the abortion the woman had to see papers from the clinic to prove to herself that the girl had had the abortion done. So this type of pro-life do gooder disgusts me. Its my body and my choice and I think Roe v Wade was a blessing in disguise.
