  • Haven't seen it, don't want to see it.  I am well informed without watching movies.

    So tell me, do you spay/neuter your pets?  Do you eat meat?  Do you hunt or support hunting?

  • Yes, I've seen it. Much like everything else I take a stand on, I make it a point to have an educated point of view. But once again, you keep ignoring my reasons for being pro-choice because they don't serve your purpose, so I see no reason to keep repeating them.

  • Is this woman still running her mouth, and yet refusing to hear other people's opinions?

    Stop trying to convert everyone.

    It doesn't make you look credible OR intelligent.

  • Yup  Jynxx...she has nothing better to do.

  • I think she's just lonely.

    And apparently she hasn't read her bible very well.

    She still has yet to comment on all the quotes I gave her, from the bible, where God condones or commands the deaths of innocent children.

    If you want to be Pro-Life, that's fine. But pick a VALID reason to be pro-life. back up your opinions with valid research. And don't push your beliefs on others. You truth is not my truth, and your truth is not the ONLY truth.

  • Yes, and in all honesty if you know what you are looking at they are grossly exaggerating what is going on in the film. The movement is not the fetus moving away from suction, but the jostling of the uterus. That is why the fetus goes back and forth if it was "swimming away" than it would not go back towards the device. The "scream" is general sucking motion all fetuses do this, even the ones not being aborted can be seen making the same mouth movements during ultrasounds. So are they all screaming for the whole 9 months in there? No of course not. Do they swim away hoping to live and than swim toward it because they are suicidal and just go back and forth because the fetus can not make up its mind? No. In all honesty abortion is not a pretty thing it does suck, so why the need to embellish it to make it seem worse? Did you know you can get more people on your side using accurate information?

  • The over embellishment and showing things like 5 month fetuses and saying they are 6 week fetuses the films where you are saying XYZ happened when any one that has seen their own US and knows that happens in all ultra sounds knows that is not what it is actually turns more people away from the prolife side. I am pro choice, I know how bad the actual procedure is I have seen it and counseled many women on it. Using the truth and factual images changes so many more minds than the over fabricated lies many pro life movements are using and this fim happens to be one of those that turns people away from your cause.

  • Death is never pretty. When you abort, you are killing a living thing - no doubt about that in my mind. But death is a part of life, and occurs at many different stages in life. A miscarried child can't be any prettier than an aborted one.

    Seriously - abortion as a choice - it should be a HARD choice. It is a small life you have in your hands. But - that small life isn't even aware of itself yet. To try to say that it's terrified - the truth is, it's clueless as to what's going on. Painful? A bright red point of pain, perhaps - then it's gone.

    I don't believe in aborting after the first trimester, myself. But that first trimester - it's a mass of cells. Living growing cells - but still cells. But - yeah - it's should be a hard choice.
