  • New laws in Alabama, Georgia and Missouri with sweeping abortion bans coupled with states like New York codifying Roe v. Wade has reignited the heated abortion debate. It is always fraught with rhetoric, as advocates on both sides of the issue spin facts to support their side. Will thousands of women die if Roe v. Wade is overturned? Is abortion more dangerous now than ever before? Do women get abortions after 20 weeks primarily because of fetal anomaly or to protect their health? Do the broad new laws essentially allow infanticide? As a viewer service, we untangle the spin. Read more: wapo.st/2MJdSAc. Subscribe to The Washington Post on IDclips: wapo.st/2QOdcqK

    Abortion is in FACT the world MOST dangerous procedure because one of the patients must die for the abortion to be considered successful.

    How in the world anybody can take J.Castro seriously after his historical (statement) announcement and the promise to give transgender women right on abortion!?! Oh...WP I guess!!!!!
    A child is a blessing and gift of God, if you intentionally reject it, you shouldn't have the right on that blessing ever...PERIOD!
    The weird thing is that many of these advocates of the butchering of unborn human beings are whole-hearted advocates of animal rights, and even weirder... they are passionate opponents of the treatment and separating of illegal immigrant's children from their "parents" in the ICE and the Border Patrol's detention centers!

    I would like for every woman thinking of having an abortion to speak with a person who has killed or caused a person to be killed. It is a memory which will be with you a lifetime.
    I made decisions, actions when I was a young man that caused at least three deaths. Always will these be with me.
    As I understand it the suicide rate for women is highest with those who have had abortions. Please don't believe the lie that your child is nothing but a useless clump of cells. You know better and will not forget.
    Please protect your child that is in the safest place on earth.

    Pregnancy is not a punishment, it is a result; nothing more, nothing less. When YOU apply YOUR subjective feelings is when it becomes good or bad. Pregnancy alone just "is". How can a woman consent to becoming or staying pregnant. She had no choice in becoming pregnant, she just did become pregnant by having intercourse. Consent to sex is the only thing she or the man had a say about (unless rape of course). How is consent even possible to something that is out of your control. Pregnancy is a natural result of sexual intercourse. A woman can't consent to becoming pregnant or consent to staying pregnant any more than I can consent to having to pee or getting a leg cramp, Consent happens between TWO competent people with agency, authority, and faculty; whom also possess the ability to communicate their will. The very definition presupposes that these agents have the ability to grant or deny, for an agreement or disagreement. Did the baby ask to be there? No, the mother and father put it there. If a woman denies a pregnancy to continue, she has acted as an authoritarian dictator. The mere circumstances for "consent" are not present for natural events. Can you consent to a hurricane or tornado? No, they just happen when the correct weather conditions present themselves. Once the mother and father have created a new life, the new life is a dependent. The man and woman should now assume responsibility for their new dependent until those responsibilities can be legally and responsibly transferred.

      The Corruption; you are splitting hairs and I don't accept your framework for this argument. You may consider that "a pregnancy" is "a new life". To many, however, "a pregnancy" is nothing more than "dividing cell tissue" (in fact, unless the pregnancy is wanted/planned/accepted, few women feel bonded to that fetal tissue until the quickening--and some, never). In these circumstances, for many, "a new life" only refers to a child who is born (or, for some, it's after they feel the quickening). Your belief and definition about when a pregnancy is a life is the individual's choice,

      In my opinion, an unwanted pregnancy can be a terrible, lifelong punishment--for the woman who carries the unwanted pregnancy and particularly when an unwanted pregnancy becomes an unwanted child. Why do you think you have the right to decide for anyone else but yourself whether to continue a pregnancy or not? Why do you believe you have the right to tell anyone what to do with their own body? Finally, why don't you focus your attention on all the unwanted children who are actually born every day? Seems to me your concern is only for fetal tissue--and not the millions born to parents who consider that real, living child a "mistake". It seems to me that attending to the actually born would be far more fruitful.

      @A L So everyone should get a free ride? Nice to know, what fairy land do you live in? Would you still have a "full scholarship" if you missed 6 weeks of class?

No. That's YOUR life, so for all the millions of kids who are raised in a single parent home with a handicapped sibling or a major illness or too many mouths to feed.

      T Mc yeah nothing in life is guaranteed. And i have a full ride scholarship so what debt boo? I was raised by a single mother went to public school and some more and i have friends who are the children of very well off people have private education and are poor af rn or on dope so all of that really means nothing if you’re providing a loving and stable home. People like you try to make it seem like poor people cant and shouldn’t have children what kind of sense does that make when you could be making a siz figure salary today and be 400,000 dollars in debt tomorrow with nothing to your name and no where to live. What should those people do with their kids. Or if they’re pregnant is that a logical reason to have an abortion?

      @A L Once again you "assume" you will be in a better position. So your college debt, thousands of dollars in child care, food for more than yourself will not impact your ability to "better yourself". And of course you would only have 1 child, perfect world. Get a grip, there are millions of grandparents raising their grandchildren, not every child is born healthy, a teen giving birth never happens, women dying delivering a baby never happens. Consequences, very true, so that woman was alone when she became pregnant, all birth control is perfect. How many men die from having sex? How many children die before the age of 5 or are born with severe birth defects in the US each year?

That's life it's tough sometimes but you push through you don't get to just ignore the consequence of your actions in any other situation so why should it be acceptable in this case. You're not even providing a valid argument.

    There's a concept called "bodily autonomy". It's generally
    considered a human right. Bodily Autonomy means a person has control
    over who or what uses their body, for what, and for how long. It's why
    you can't be forced to donate blood, tissue, or organs.
    Even if you're dead! Even if you'd save or improve 20 lives. It's why
    someone can't touch you, have sex with you, or use your body in any way
    without your continuous consent. A fetus is using someone's body parts.
    Therefore under bodily autonym, it's there
    by permission, not by right. It needs a person's continuous consent. If
    the pregnant person denies or withdraws consent, then she has a right
    to remove the fetus from that moment. A fetus is equal in this regard
    because if I need someone else's body parts
    to live, they also can legally deny me their use. By saying a fetus has
    a right to someone's body parts until it's born, despite the pregnant
    person's wishes, you are doing two things: 1) Granting a fetus more
    rights to other people's bodies than any born
    person. 2) Awarding a pregnant person less rights to their body than a
    corpse.

    This is the fact Life begins at fertilization. Personhood is now a philosophical question. Because personhood has many answers, to have an abortion would be criminal negligence. Unless a legal definition of life happens for example Nix V. Hedden where the law disagreed with science.

    • Comion
      Comion 5 bulan yang lalu +2

      Since no one can agree on personhood as its beginning, technology should improve to be able to incubate or give life support in all stages of human life. Also, sure the woman could deny developing human access to nutrients. However, name one procedure where the developing human is not directly killed. That means the person performing the abortion does not touch or harm the developing human without consent. Yes, the placenta is part of the developing human like skin cells or hair cells. “First, do no harm.” That is the mantra doctors live by. Since we do not know, does not mean we should do harm. Ideally, save both lives. I hope technology will once and for all solve this dilemma.

      @Kelly Jacobs in that case smokers should legally be allowed to smoke anywhere regardless of whom it might affect. if the baby doesn't matter as a human, then health risks to others shouldn't matter to a smoker.
      but you'd argue they do, right? but why?? the baby is a seperate body and entity from the mothers, yet she is allowed to make choices that decide its fate. so it is a contradiction to state that someone else should not be legally allowed to make their own decision with their own body regardless of who is affected by that choice. That is a pro lifers logic.

    • John Donahue
      John Donahue 4 bulan yang lalu +2

      @Kelly Jacobs, but the analogy DOES make sense because the SUBSTANCE of the child is the SAME BOTH before and after it leaves the birth canal, as does the ship's. But you make what is known in logic as a "category mistake", i.e. comparing apples to oranges. A ship being built in a shipyard does NOT pass through any canal until it is FULLY a ship. A child is FULLY a child when fertilization occurs as it has all it will ever need in terms of DNA instructions to become fully human. Of course, it still requires care and nourishment, the same as a new-born baby. But if abortion is your solution to a contraception issue, you are in sad shape. Today, there is NO reason or excuse for abortion, given all of the birth control methods now on the market. So if killing a child is your alternative to these methods, you are, in reality, no better than Hitler, Herod the Great, or the Pharaoh of Exodus 1:15-16. -- Blessings, John

    • Kelly Jacobs
      Kelly Jacobs 4 bulan yang lalu

      @John Donahue Your analogy makes zero sense. When does a ship become a ship? Surely not when it's being built in a Shipyard. But more important whoever is building/owner of the ship, decides what happens with it.

    • John Donahue
      John Donahue 4 bulan yang lalu +2

      @Kelly Jacobs, only if you believe that a fetus or embryo is not fully human. But genetics clearly shows that this is a wrong-headed conclusion. Saying that someone is not the same person before and after he/she enters the birth canal makes about as much sense as saying that a ship is not the same ship before and after it enters the Panama Canal. Totally illogical... and immoral. -- Blessings, John

    This is beyond government interference. Removing citizen rights is authoritarianism 101. If you can't even trust your fellow citizens to make choices about their own families and health, then you have no place in America. There's nothing moral about criminalizing abortion. We already went through that nightmare and realized legal access to abortion was a not only a right but a moral obligation. After Roe v Wade, the number of dead women and girls ceased nearly overnight. No more finding dead mothers in alleys, hallways, cheap motel rooms, even in their own homes as they bled to death because of botched abortions, sometimes with husbands and male partners who had tried to assist. If you want a return to that, there is something very wrong with you. Especially when you consider that most people having abortions already have children. Birth control is not always effective. Health risks arise. Stop presuming you know what's best for others and you have the answers for them. You don't and you're morally superior to anyone. Everyone loves their family. You're not some holier than thou exception. You know what's best for your family only. If you want to survive under religious tyranny and moral hypocrisy, there are other countries you can do that. This is America. We prefer democracy, self determination, free will, and allowing people to make their own choices about what works best for their families and health.

    No common sence anymore, just reactionaries ....Facts are women historically gave themselves abortions too very few hospitals and clinics..it was reported to me the that beds would just shake when they became septic and subsequently died. Even the most devout religious individuals believed in good medical care for women. Everyone is missing the real point here. It's about women having controlled rights over their own bodies as well as access to good safe and sound health care. Women were considered like chattel ruled by their husbands or brothel owners. Not that long ago in our near past brothels lined certain streets in our towns and cities... not many professions or jobs for women to do. This is more way way complicated than this one issue.. it's called equal rights... also, Women weren't allowed to know their own diagnosis at one point in time. The next step is to make men more accountable for their part. The fallen male stigma. It's always the women's fault. Even birth defects. We need to do more chromosomal studies on the effects of drug and alcohol on regeneration aspects of the male side of reproduction. We have way more pressing issues coming to continually keep bringing this issue up over and over...

    You can't even talk about the issue without taking sides; if you say 'unborn baby' you're pro-life and if you say 'fetus' you're pro-choice. What both sides seem to miss is that abortions come in pill form now; in Finland 96% use this method. What this means is an abortion law, even if passed in upheld by the Supreme Court, is practically unenforceable, just buy an abortion pill from the same guy who sells ecstasy. Abortions are going to happen whether it's legal or not, so what we're really talking about is keeping it safe and out of the hands of criminals.

      Actually, this already does happen. Plan B has been around for early pregnancies. For later abortions this drug is illegal, but cheaper then going to an abortion clinic. It carries with high risk of bleeding to death and cancer later on in life. Many women just claim that they just had a miscarriage if they went this route because it is illegal, but usually insurance or the tax payer will pick up the emergency room tab.

    I don’t understand how most people don’t agree that there should at least be SOME restrictions on abortions. We describe a pregnant woman as being WITH CHILD. When they or someone in their family is pregnant and the baby is wanted, everyone gets excited. They rub the belly, they talk to it, etc. When the baby isn’t wanted, it suddenly becomes “something else”. We can’t have it both ways. I appreciate the Washington Post for sticking with facts on this issue, although there’s plenty more discussions to be had.

      @Spicy Sriracha that's not true hon. They dont even have fully developed central nervous systems until 29 weeks which sould POSSIBLY make them capable of feeling pain. And the vast majority of abortions are within the first twelve weeks and the tiny percentage that are later are seriously almost all because the fetus is not compatible with life or the mother could die. Its awful it costs 25k and they only do it in Colorado and you have to have two specialists that have said the fetus is not viable or. The mother is in danger...

Even in the third trimester, which is a considerably small portion, that is mostly done in cases of stillborn or danger to the mother.

      I also heard there were studies that the fetuses felt pain also when they were getting aborted 😟

      @Kaleb Welhouse and since the vast majority literally about 99.9% of abortions are performed long before then, you're just incorrect

      The Hong Kong thing is really about the bourgeois Cantonese vs provincial Mandarin. It will get uglier than our abortion debate.

      CIA it is the best choice for Britain. The EU gives almost no power to it’s elected parliament, instead the European Commission makes laws, but commission members are appointed and can not be removed. Unelected officials should never be able to control government. The EU is a dictatorship

      @CIA The EU was created to make trade easier, not to counterbalance the Sovjets.
      To counterbalance the Sovjets we leaned on the US.
      We dont need an outside power like Russia to destroy Europe, our Soros supported bureaucracy is very capable of doing it from the inside.

      @Laurier I dont know. But the EU was created as a counterbalance to communism and Russian aggression in Europe. And so that there would be no more wars in Europe. The EU is the only guarantor of a peaceful future for Europe. The same words are repeated in Russian. Open the story and see. With the advent of NATO and the EU in Europe, there are no longer large-scale wars that could outgrow a world war. Want a new war in Europe ?

      @Xenomorph Dragon Assassin Yes, Conservative are all over the place lots of different sources. They are actually more informed then liberals and even PEW and Gallop polls have confirmed that fact. They also tend to know the US Constitution and Bill of Rights better too. Lefties just go to college to get indoctrinated , not well rounded nor educated.

      Trump has nothing to do with this argument. This is just an on going battle since we know so much more about human development. I suppose you want Mike Pence to be president too. Hmm, that is sort of nuts.

      @Philip Brandon it's a disgrace to this country & to all lives on this earth.. Do you understand the process & how much it costs? & how much pain the woman has to go through during that procedure.. Even the pain the baby goes through to they don't care if it's the arm or leg they pull it straight out tearing it apart or if lucky all in one piece & dispose of the aborted baby..

      @Spicy Sriracha you keep saying that, but the thing is neurons, which are responsible for conducting and interpreting pain responses, are not even present (meaning they haven’t formed yet) until the 3rd trimester (28 weeks). The scientific consensus is that the fetus is in a coma-like state until the third trimester. Everything regarding how the fetus is doing during the first two trimesters are all political ploys.
