Anonny Mouse BS: abortion south dakota (124* d) RE: BS: abortion south dakota 07 Mar 06

This is just SOOOOO divisive, y'know? I am an advocate of choice; I am not an advocate of relentless retroactive birth control, although for a male, whoever asked about consequences, or losses of freedom is correct. The female has 9 months of her life consumed with pre-natal issues, not to mention medical risks involved.

It used to be that a very high percentage of abortions-into the 90's percentiles-were NOT because of rape, incest, or the life of the mother. I don't know if that has altered much. The thing is, a person ALWAYS has the choice NOT to terminate a pregnancy. If there is a ban, or Roe v Wade is overturned, there will be little or NO choice for many. It IS a fact that the well-to-do can travel elsewhere and will; it is also a fact that much will revert to the "back alley" coat-hanger purveyors...and then likely two deaths will result. And this will also be punitive to doctors, pharmacies, pharmacists, planned parenthood and birth control which is also in the sites of the "pro life" lobby. There are already Catholic hospitals that refuse pregnancy terminations as policy, and some conservatively owned/operated pharmacies that will refuse to dispense contraceptives. Lookit that town that the owner of Dominoe's Pizza is trying to build someplace in Florida.
