In other words, once she reaches 20 weeks, she is no longer in full ownership of her body and the State controls and owns her uterus until that baby is born. Correction, viability is now down to when the State believes the baby feels pain. It is not easy, but it is not that hard either. If her doctor believes that the pregnancy will impact on her mental health, she can and will be granted one. If the pregnancy puts her life at risk in any way (even depression which could lead to suicide), she can legally obtain an abortion in this country. Many women have. And you seem to believe that your personal opinion should matter and should factor into a person's rights over her own body and her reproductive organs. Don't you get it yet? What I personally believe is beside the point. What I personally believe only applies to my own reproductive organs, no one else's. It is not my place to impose my personal beliefs on another woman's uterus. You seem to believe that men such as yourself and Mr England should have more rights over a woman's uterus than she does, based solely on your personal beliefs. The same applies to the OP of this thread. Men are declaring ownership of women's uterus because of their personal and at times, religious beliefs, to the point where they are declaring that women should just no thave sex because they personally believe in abstinence, ergo women should not be given easier access to birth control. And that is the hilarious and somewhat appalling thing with this whole debate. It is men who control it, just as they are currently trying to control the reproductive organs of women. And the extent this is being pushed is ridiculous and pathetic. We are watching your fellow conservatives in your country limit birth control to charging women with murder because they tried to commit suicide while they are pregnant to doctors refusing and being denied the right to perform abortions on women who are miscarrying because the fetus still has a heartbeat. If you want to see the true level of the misogyny of Republicans and what they are subjecting women to, you only have to look at Arizona, if the examples cited in this thread aren't bad enough: Arizona legislators have advanced an unprecedented bill that would require women who wish to have their contraception covered by their health insurance plans to prove to their employers that they are taking it to treat medical conditions. The bill also makes it easier for Arizona employers to fire a woman for using birth control to prevent pregnancy despite the employer's moral objection. Under current law, health plans in Arizona that cover other prescription medications must also cover contraception. House Bill 2625, which the state House of Representatives passed earlier this month and the Senate Judiciary Committee endorsed on Monday, repeals that law and allows any employer to refuse to cover contraception that will be used "for contraceptive, abortifacient, abortion or sterilization purposes." If a woman wants the cost of her contraception covered, she has to "submit a claim" to her employer providing evidence of a medical condition, such as endometriosis or polycystic ovarian syndrome, that can be treated with birth control. Moreover, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, the law would give Arizona employers the green light to fire a woman upon finding out that she took birth control for the purpose of preventing pregnancy. "The bill goes beyond guaranteeing a person's rights to express and practice their faith," Anjali Abraham, a lobbyist for the ACLU, told the Senate panel, "and instead lets employers prioritize their beliefs over the beliefs, the interests, the needs of their employees, in this case, particularly, female employees." The sponsor of the bill told the committee that it is intended to protect the First Amendment right to religious liberty. So please, can your moral indignation. Who do you think you are fooling here? Keep your opinion about reproductive rights to your own gonads and allow women the dignity to have control over their own bodies.
