Do you have control over when someone dies?

NO, No you do not. So why do so many people think they should have control as to when someone should live, when someone should be born?

  • "America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts -- a child -- as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience.

  • It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters"
    And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners. Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign."

    -Mother Teresa

  • If it's in one's body they do have control over it. It's just the way it is....Abortion has gone on since the beginning of time, now it's just safer for the mother.

  • I've said this may times: THIS IS A SITE FOR MOTHERS. WE HAVE, BY VIRTUE OF OUR TITLE OF "MOTHER", CHOSEN LIFE. Find another audience where your platitudes might be better served.

  • missbear--not all mothers on here are mothers by choice....some stepped up to the plate, others have exercised their right on more than one occasion.

  • MissBear...just because someone chose life once doesn't mean they'll do it again. :)
