Correct, just as it is none of your business if a woman chooses to kill her BORN child, but you think that should be illegal.So what are you saying? Because the aborted fetus looks terrible, we should stop all women from having an abortion at 12 weeks? Is 6 weeks okay? Since I am not carrying the fetal organism, or will look after the fetal organism, or will give birth to the fetal organism, or will spend the next 20 years raising the fetal organism, then if and when a woman chooses to abort this organism, it is NONE OF MY BUSINESS!
All of which is why I disagree with it, although not including the fact that there is no exception for incest. Why should there be an exception for incest?This law bans ALL abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected(6 weeks). It allows for ANY private Texas citizen to sue ANY abortion provider, who aids, abets, assists or performs an abortion. This would include anyone driving a pregnant mother to an abortion clinic. Or, anyone(including her parents) who puts up the money for the mother to have an abortion. This law makes NO exception for rape or incest.
Instead of requiring public officials to enforce the law, this law allows individuals to bring civil lawsuits against abortion providers or anyone else found to "aid or abet" illegal abortions. Which now makes private citizens responsible in enforcing this law. But here is the worse part.
"Anyone who successfully sues an abortion provider under this law could be awarded at least $10,000. And to prepare for that, Texas Right to Life has set up what it calls a "whistleblower" website where people can submit anonymous tips about anyone they believe to be violating the law.".
Exactly - "loosely protected." VERY loosely protected. And again, the right to privacy doesn't exist and it first had to be invented.A woman's right to have an abortion is covered in the "due process" clause in the 14th amendment, under privacy. It is loosely protected under the 1st, 4th, 5th, and 9th Amendments.
So what do you think of the mention of "viability?""In the first trimester of pregnancy, the state may NOT regulate the abortion decision; only the pregnant woman and her attending physician can make that decision. In the second trimester, the state may impose regulations on abortion that are reasonably related to maternal health. In the third trimester, once the fetus reaches the point of “viability,” a state may regulate abortions or prohibit them entirely, so long as the laws contain exceptions for cases when abortion is necessary to save the life or health of the mother.".
My rationale for what?What is your rationale?
What's the relevance of the adoption?You should really read about Norma McCorvey(Jane Roe). She had 3 pregnancies, which resulted in 3 children put up for adoption.
"An abortion is referred to as an elective or voluntary abortion when it is performed at the request of the woman for non-medical reasons." www.wikipedia.org/wiki/AbortionALL abortions that ALL women chose to have are ELECTIVE!! So you are just saying to ban ALL abortions that women ELECT to have.
I think that it IS a moral issue! What have I said toWhy do you think that the abortion issue is NOT a moral or religious issue?
make you think that I don't think it's a moral issue?
Well what do these people have to do with me?These are the people who think that conception is the beginning of human life. These are the people who believe that all HUMAN LIFE is protected by God. These are the people who think that terminating an unwanted pregnancy, is murder. These are the fanatics and nutcases, who don't give a shit about the the future of the child or the mother.
Better than what?You're better than this Chris!
