About 39 years ago I was close to 13 weeks pregnant and had an abortion. Near the end of the abortion the nurse said 'O My God' and stared for about a minute and left. The doctor continued staring for about a minute or two longer. While staring he briefly placed his hand on my knee to try to reassure me. I could see they were in shock and knew they watched my baby die. My legs were draped so I could not see. I want to stop abortions. Heart pumping blood day 21, brain waves day 40. see Baby Center- Fetal Development Week By Week which states on week 11 the baby can FEEL if the belly is gently poked on mom, is kicking and stretching, almost fully developed. Look at the pictures – the fetus looks like a developed baby. bible "You knitted me in my mother's womb". I believe abortion is socially accepted birth control taught by the powerful examples set by society. I was told at the appointment the fetus was just tissue – the same lie told today despite the advanced technology showing the truth. The greatest holocaust was not from Hitler's Nazi regime – but from the brutal abortion of innocent lives.
I urge people to think about history and take a look at the deadly statistics associated with making abortion illegal in many states.
I know everyone has their own opinion regarding abortion and I do understand those who oppose it and I understand why. Unfortunately, even if abortion is outlawed here in the U.S. in many states, desperate women will still get abortions any way they can, law or no law, safe or unsafe. Also, even if women are forced to go through with an unwanted pregnancy, where are we going to put all those unwanted children? The foster care system will eventually become overwhelmed. What are we going to do then, build orphanages again? That seems like a step backwards to me. We're supposed to be in the 21st century, but it looks like a lot of people in this country want us to revert back to the late 19th and early 20th century.

Before going forward with making abortion illegal in American states after nearly 50 years of women being in charge of their own reproductive choices, let's take a good, close look at history, shall we?
ABORTION WAS criminalized throughout the U.S. between the late 1800s and 1973. But during that time, millions of women sought and obtained abortions anyway.
Of these, tens upon tens of thousands died from illegal abortions or complications arising from them. One 1932 study estimated that illegal abortions or complications from them were the cause of death for 15,000 women each year. Current, more conservative, estimates of the death toll still stand at between 5,000 and 10,000 deaths per year.
Some of these deaths were the result of the abortions themselves, but many more were from infection and hemorrhaging afterward. Because of the fear of being punished and socially ostracized, many women–and their doctors–kept their real condition a secret.
Ketanji leaked it, she is guessing what a woman is.
This is a state's right issue if there ever was one. Young woman, if you want to go around screwing everything in sight, and get pregnant there are plenty of states where you can go slaughter your baby.
Democrats need to be removed from society
My sympathies are will all the women who will be placed in very difficult positions due to Roe being overturned.
Baby body is not your body. If baby can survive outside of you, you should not murder it.
that any republicans believe they could claim to be decent or respect this country, and support such wilful secrecy to outmanoeuvre our public, is 100% wilful ignorance.
A woman in her 9th month of pregnancy is injured by a man, the non-born human is killed and aborted, however the man can NOT be charged of murder because he/she was a non-born human (the family was aiming for justice)….THAT happens when human race depreciate LIFE… so who is really loosing his/her rights ?
Why are old men calling all the shots when abortion has absolutely nothing to do with them?

Fair Elections would END the Democratic Party.
Midterms coming up! 469 of 535 Congressional Seats are up. Vote the racist,lying,child abusing, Democrats out!
Stop voting Republican.
How did the killing of a fetus become a right?
Wow, ABC news is a bit one-sided on this issue. Not a good way to report the news. If he even read the entire draft, then he read it with an already bigoted frame of mind. Where has the real journalism gone?
I'm still gonna keep recommending this same dude above 👆.
His recovery services are the best.

Time to start charging these women with first degree murder. If found guilty, these women deserve the death penalty.
BABIES ARE GOD'S CHILDREN. IF YOU DONT WANT A BABY USE PROTECTION IF YOU GET PREGNANT GIVE IT UP FOR ADOPTION AND GIVE IT LIFE ABORTION IS MURDER! THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO SEE IT! STOP KILLING INNOCENT BABIES! YOU DONT HAVE TO RAISE IT GIVE IT UP!
Anti abortion, no maternity leave … America in 2022 lead the world in backward laws. Backward people?
WE LIVE IN A GENERATION WHERE TEASING AND LAUGHING AT AMERICANS IS THE NORM.
Democracy at work, State Rights is power to the people. This ends nothing, it only allows each State to decide and it gives the People Power because State representatives answer more directly to their constituents. POWER TO THE PEOPLE
The first U.S. civil war was over the right to own slaves. The second U.S. civil war will be over a woman's right to prematurely terminate her pregnancy.
The left are trying to get riots just before the mid terms so they can cheat in these up coming elections like they had 80mil dead people vote for BRANDON in the 2020 and thats why the left states are trying to get force mask mandates back so they can cover up the rioters at POLLING STATIONS as ANTIFA THUGS DEEP STATE PLAYBOOK 101
Abortion is genocide and murder. Those Democrats upset about the genocide in Ukraine are hypocrites. They care nothing about the invasion into a mother womb with a scalpel and a poison to kill the fetuses. Fetuses are human.
I stand against planned parenthood. Abortion is the industry of death and profit. Just ask Dr Gosnell who snipped the spinal cords of eight month babies after they survived abortion.
The war 😭😭in Ukraine 🇺🇦 is meant to open your eyes to the reality in the financial system. Real estate firm and other businesses are also closed too only crypto holders are spending money with ease..
Women are not smart enough to make this decision for themselves. They pick fathers based upon the make of the car they drive. Best to leave this deceit here 9 post menopausal people whose ovaries and testes are dry air
These right to lifers are pushing to remove the rights away from Americans and were upset about waring masks claiming it is against our collective rights. How dare you insist how another American lives their lives. This move is anti American at its core, brought to you by the anti freedom GOP and its supporters. Shame on all of you and all of your antiamerican republican vote.
People want the right to rape and murder babies. May you reap what you sow.
The argument would be more quickly settled if the process was shown in detail on national TV.
This is a big win for the Constitution, Federalism and the United States.
Don't let the leftists convince you otherwise!
I can’t believe there’s a baby killer interaction going on at the Supreme Court and nobody’s doing anything about it but they didn’t do anything about of the 60 million babies already killed hell must be a gigantic place because there’s going to be OK a lot of people there probably including me but these people are sick motherfuckers
That’s what the Dems want. That’s all they have. Intimidate and bully people. Lie and stir up hate, violence, mayhem, chaos and destruction. Democrats start actual insurrections all the time that they never get blamed or in trouble for.
You knew this will be played up as much as possible as midterms come. I wonder who is behind the leak?
Anyway, I can understand looking to abortion if raped or something like that. This said, adoption is and always has been an option. To allow an abortion up to 24 weeks, to me, is pretty sick, given my child's heartbeat was detected at 8 weeks.
Moving on, I see a story pumped out with the headline, "Phoebe Bridgers reveals she had an abortion last year, says 'everyone deserves' Planned Parenthood access." Turns out she had an abortion while touring her music. So basically, she screwed up, and got pregnant knowing the risk and doesn't want the responsibility nor have a child interfere with her career. Rather than taking responsibility of a child she full well knew could come, she wants the easy way out via an abortion. I will never support that kind of choice. That's on her.
