    These are the types of subjects that you will probably never get someone to change their point of view on. I am not going to argue with anybody about something so personal. That said, I will offer my thoughts on abortion...


    To start with, when my mom (RIP) became pregnant with me in 1972, she was in her late 30s. Her doctors urged her to have an abortion due to her "age". They tried to tell her that I would have severe birth defects and it may possibly even kill her to carry me. Glad she didn't listen to them.

    Having dated many women post-divorce (2008), I can honestly say that women I have dated who had abortions ALL seem to regret it deeply and never got over that "choice". And the "choice" was made by the guys they were dating who didn't want the children. I haven't come across one woman who said "yeah I didn't want the baby so I had an abortion". It was always the guy who forced the issue.

    Lastly, it is bizarre to me that in 2019, this is still an issue. We are an intelligent species. Birth control is extremely affordable. I never wanted children and have managed to get to 46 years old without EVER impregnating anybody. I'm not a Rockstar, but I have slept with at least 20 women since my divorce. Knowing that the only thing that could derail me financially was child support, I made damn sure never to leave anything to chance. Excluding the rape/incest situations - all other unwanted pregnancies could be avoided with a little bit of common sense.

    Carry on....

    Republican Gov. Signs Extreme Abortion-Till-Birth Bill Into Law


    Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, a Republican, signed an extreme pro-abortion bill into law on Monday, permitting abortions to be performed up until the moment of birth in the state for any reason whatsoever.

    The legislation, H.57, includes zero abortion restrictions. The unborn, who have detectable beating hearts at around six-weeks gestation and can feel pain as early as 20 weeks, can be legally killed at any time during a woman’s pregnancy for any reason at all. Notably, young girls of any age will not be required to seek parental consent before having an abortion.

    "Like many Vermonters, I have consistently supported a woman’s right to choose," Scott said in a statement, reported by The Hill. “This legislation affirms what is already allowable in Vermont – protecting reproductive rights and ensuring those decisions remain between a woman and her health care provider.”

    Gov. Scott added that he “appreciate[s] the respectful tone and civility from all sides throughout this discussion."

    “This bill proposes to recognize as a fundamental right the freedom of reproductive choice and to prohibit public entities from interfering with or restricting the right of an individual to terminate the individual’s pregnancy,” H.57 reads.

    Bill O'Reilly: Bill's Weekly Column - Life as We Know It

    June 10, 2019




    When it comes to the subject of abortion there is far too much talking, and not nearly enough thinking. Terminating a fetus is a life-death decision that should be treated with grave concern for both the mother and the developing fetus which contains human DNA upon conception.

    There are scientific facts involved with taking life from a motherís womb and destroying it. The most important fact is that no human being can know with certainty when life actually begins. Christian doctrine says that upon conception, a soul enters the human cell mass and therefore it is human, a creation of God.

    Those who justify abortion reject that belief and embrace a variety of other standards for defining a human being. But there is no exact scientific definition here, that is a fact.

    One can have an opinion but is that enough to terminate a life that will enter the world after nine months? Christians and others say no. Secularists say no problem (aborting a fetus).

    Doctors in America are apparently siding with the life movement. According to the Guttmacher Institute, which studies abortion in the USA, only seven percent of Obstetricians and Gynecologists will perform abortions.

    However, you will not hear that statistic much from the American media which has succeeded in framing the abortion-life debate as good versus evil. But, incredibly, the evil is on the pro-life side.

    If you oppose abortion you are a denier of female equality, a misogynist. If you donít subscribe to unfettered abortion you are violating ďreproductive rights.Ē

    Recently, Georgia, Alabama, and some other states passed new laws placing limits on aborting fetuses. In response, the CEO of the Disney Corporation, Robert Iger, threatened to deny Georgia all Disney film business. For this, Iger is being celebrated as a hero in Hollywood.

    In New York, where there once were limits on abortion, now there are none. The Roman Catholic Governor, Andrew Cuomo, championed a new law that says abortion can take place at any time for any reason up until birth.

    Mr. Cuomo describes himself as a practicing Catholic but acknowledges his enthusiasm for the very liberal abortion law puts him at odds with his faith. If there is a judgment day, that should be a very interesting discussion that Andrew Cuomo might have.

    The Bishop of Springfield, Illinois is already denying the sacraments to politicians in his state who did what Governor Cuomo did.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden, now running for president, is also caught up in the abortion war. For 43 years, Biden supported the Hyde Amendment which bans the use of federal money for abortions outside of rape, incest, and permanent damage to the motherís physical health.

    The thinking behind the Hyde law is that the federal government cannot force Americans who oppose abortion on moral grounds to pay for it through their tax dollars. That seems to be fair, that is if you believe in freedom of religion.

    But suddenly Joe doesnít think itís fair. Thatís because the far left, which is driving the Democratic Party, has villainized every pro-life position including the Hyde Amendment. So Joe is scared. Heís also a Catholic.

    A humane society should be able to limit abortion while protecting mothers in dangerous circumstances. Abortion should not be a political issue, used to demonize. Yes, American women have rights. But so, too, do developing cells that will shortly become human beings.

    If you deny that last statement, you might be accused of playing God. You donít know and I donít know when a human being becomes a human being. So shouldnít we all respect and promote life?

    Thatís what human rights are all about.

    Or am I wrong?
