Planned Parenthood
« on: July 23, 2015, 12:30:59 PM »
As someone who leans conservative, I cannot understand why conservatives are obsessed with attacking Planned Parenthood.

Is it a Christian thing?

Jewish law does not appear to be so extreme when it comes to abortion. There are some contemporary Poskim who hold that abortion is permissible in cases of psychiatric danger to the mother, adultery, rape and even known sicknesses like Tay Sachs.

Jewish law aside, why not allow a teenager on drugs who has no money and no family to get an abortion? There is evidence of crime reduction directly related to abortion.

Last but not least, wouldn't criminalizing abortion lead to more Liberal and Democratic voters?

Why are you assuming who is getting abortions?

As the line goes what if it was your mother?

IIRC The Rambam paskens that for non Jews abortion is one of their 7 mitzvahs and is the equivalent of murder. So יש על מי לסמוך.

Which part of my post are you referring to? The part of less Democratic voters? If this were not the case then pro-life movements would be hypocrites, would they not?

I don't know. I wouldn't be here to post this. I can say that I B"H grew up in a very stable family and had a good childhood. I can also say that my mother probably knew (or hoped?) this would be the case.

You make it seem like only low lifes get abortions. If it becomes legal and a normal part of society than having abortions will be like using other preventative measures. And it just won't be a big deal.

poverty is no excuse for abortion if you can't raise the child put him/her up for adoption.
Youre saying more abortion means less blacks and less blacks means less crime?

Who said anything about Blacks?

The adoption idea is good in theory but not in practice. Most mothers, even a crack addicted teenager, will not give up their baby for adoption once the baby is born. Essentially, the crack-baby is now going to live through a life of abuse and neglect. (Sure, maybe the baby won't, but he probably will.)

Now, I know people will jump on this and say "who are you to decide who lives and who dies?". Well, For starters, I don't decide anything. I am only suggesting to leave those people and their decisions be, as I don't believe it causes harm to society.

Maybe we need a pop quiz so even a fifth grader will understand.

When does a human life begin according to some religions?

What is this the definition of?
1. the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another.
I just found a new supply of forks!
