    New York State Senate Passes Bill Permitting Abortions up to Birth
    https://www.nationalreview.com/corne...abortion-bill/
    With these notable restrictions:
    “the patient is within twenty-four weeks from the commencement of pregnancy, or there is an absence of fetal viability, or the abortion is necessary to protect the patient’s life or health.”

    Essentially if the child is going to be born dead anyway or the mother's life and health are threatened then a late-term abortion is allowed. That not too different from most other states that allow late-term abortions.

    Evil is evil.

    Why not allow parents to murder their children up to 18 or 21?

    Some teenagers are a real pain.

    "Not good enough living conditions "? You mean it's OK to allow children to grow up in terrible conditions, which so many in America already are ? It's not a question of "the value of life , whatever that is . If pregnant women can't provide for their children they are going to have abortions whether they are legal or not .You can't stop them. They will always find a way , safe or legal or unsafe and dangerous . Where is YOUR concern for poor children ? How many poor black and Hispanic children have YOU adopted ? You hypocrisy is showing .

    My mother had an abortion before giving birth to me.
    Do I grow up and call my own mother a murderer when she gave life to me?

    Yes, it is, I'm not sure why he remained employed after making such a statement. I'm guessing it was only seen as an ethical exercise and not a promotion of actual infanticide. It did gather him a lot of bad press for it though.

    The facts indicate that your mother was a murder. Are you trying to deny the fact?

    No, I don't "want to murder them ". I'm just realistic enough to know that women are going to have abortions anyway , whether they are legal or not . I don't want to force any woman to have an abortion . But I have absolutely no right to try to force any woman to bear a child against her will . Women MUST have control over their lives, their bodies, their health and their futures . Government ordered compulsory childbirth for pregnant women denies them all of these essential things .
    Those who believe making abortion illegal will "end" it are totally deluded . The only thing that will end is the legality of abortion .

    you want to allow women to choose to murder their children

    a fine distinction, i'm sure

    I'm just realistic enough to know that women are going to have abortions anyway
    and murderers are going to murder anyway, and wife beaters are going to beat their wives anyway ...

    But I have absolutely no right to try to force any woman to bear a child against her will .
    you have more than the right - you have the responsibility, before God, to protect the innocent from those who would harm them

    Women MUST have control over their lives, their bodies, their health and their futures .
    not when it comes to murdering their children

    not sure how much value there would be in calling it to her face

    but certainly you should recognize that, in God's eyes she certainly did commit murder

    Of course there is always at least an attempt to educate re birth control and to empower women to tell stupid men "No".
