"Late Term Abortion is Awful..." 'Bettejo Dux' (Classic Wednesday)

of Kaua'i over 30 years. She is a weekly columnist in the local

Late  Term Abortion is Awful

I do agree that late term abortion is awful and would prefer it be performed only to save the mother's life. Nevertheless, I think to have an abortion is a woman's decision. It's her body. It's her future and the future of the child she does not wish to bear and raise. 

If you don't want to have an abortion, or your family or your religious leader forbid it, don't have one. But leave those of us, who feel free to make that choice, alone. It's none of your business. 

If one is married, of course her husband should have a say. Still, if  my life were in jeopardy and  if I carried full term and my husband insisted I sacrifice my life for the unborn, I'd divorce him. Fortunately that was a decision I didn't have to make. My husband agreed 

What offends me most, however, is the continual religious harping. Not all of us are Christians. 

Further, I find it very difficult to understand these same Christians who never complain- or even mention- our country's compliance in the cold blooded murder of innocent children-and men and women, too-in these stupid endless wars for profit. Not to mention the lives of our own sons and daughter's

These wars will end when those of us who love kids stand up and shout, "Not our kids, not their kids, you don't."

Peace and love Bettejo Dux

Many anti-abortionists are also pro death penalty. ??

"Roe v Wade divides pregnancy into trimesters. In the third trimester, the so-called “late term” abortion, when only FOUR OUT OF TEN THOUSAND abortions are performed, they are subject to state regulation (but not outright prohibition). In every state, late term abortions are only permitted for serious health issues of the fetus or woman, NEVER for convenience, and those who say anything different are either lying or suckers to those who are. In most cases of late term abortion, it was a WANTED pregnancy, the loss of which was devastating to the women who wanted it, and the taunting of cruel, ignorant protesters only adds injury to injury."

Thanks for the info Emerald.

Abortion will end when every child gets vaccinated to make sterile, and then given another vaccination to be fertile..... After of course, passing the parental exam. If that bothers you, the future is not for you. However, stopping for red lights, driving on the right side of the road, paying taxes, not being able to smoke where I want, and especially not being able to spit on the sidewalk in just so wrong.

Anti abortionists did nothing to stop the over 10 years of Iraq/Afghan wars !!!
