1. nobody says "YAY! abortion"
Edited on Thu Sep-29-05 10:50 PM by lionesspriyanka
but its bad enough that teens get pregnant but very few can actually raise children...and i think that even if one is legally a child they still to a degree own their bodies...and have a right to not want to suffer the rest of their lives for a stupid mistake

15. I don't think you are getting the joke
Up to including the age of 18 means until the 51st trimester (i.e the fetus has not become an adult yet)

8. I ran away from GD because of the abortion thread
but since this is the lounge, I'll make shit up for the fun of it. I say, mandatory abortions for all girls between the ages of 1 and 9. Make it habit forming early in life.

:silly:

19. In that same spirit of general silliness, make it mandatory for all
girls under 18 years of age. Kids don't need to be having kids anyhow. :P

13. FOR it. A young woman who makes the mistake of getting pregnant while
barely more than a kid herself should be able to legally and safely right that mistake.

Kids can't be expected to always make the best decisions on the spur of the moment. Teen pregnancy can be so costly for so, so many years and can negatively impact so many lives. It's far better to facilitate the correction of that mistake if she so chooses.

It's just an abortion, it's not a moral judgement.

18. read #15, this is a trick question
I grew up with the OP, the slogan he uses was a threat jokingly used on us when we were growing up.

20. I don't get things unless they're very specifically worded, lol....
Sometimes humor in print is completely lost on me.

As is humor in real life as well.

*sigh*

16. I think it's a bad idea. If your teenager is acting up, don't kill them..
drop them off at an orphanage. In fact, there should be programs where parents of teenagers can abandon their kids with no questions asked.

17. Abortion can be a form of self-defense,
regardless of the patient's age. I say "patient," because it's a personal medical choice, and I don't believe other folks' personal medical choices should be made by me, or by the government.
